Chris Brown

Yesterday I watched the video apology of Chris Brown, for assaulting Rhianna this past February.  I’m all for forgiveness and allowing people to make mistakes without raking them over the coals for the rest of eternity, but this video struck me as incredibly insincere.  Perhaps it was the script, or blaming things on his gaggle of attorneys or the perfect lighting for the video shoot.  All the parts fused together looked like one big performance.  But it got me thinking, is this something you can truly apologize for anyway?

Several years ago when I was still reeling from losing my friend Shannon McNamara to homicide, I found some solace in watching documentaries and real-life shows about murder. In many of these films, the killer was caught and brought to justice.  And in many of those instances, there was a tearful apology from the accused to the family for taking their loved one.  Sometimes the killer even recognized the almost insulting act of saying “I’m sorry” for taking the ultimate gift of LIFE.  In Shannon’s case, we never got an apology or an admittance of guilt, but I doubt it would have made much difference anyway.

Domestic violence and murder are not the same crime. However, according to the National Women Abuse Prevention Project, thirty-four percent of the women homicide victims over age 15 are killed by their husbands, ex-husbands or boyfriends. (So physical assault can lead to a lethally violent outcome.)  But yesterday as I watched Chris say he had been such a good guy up ’till the moment he beat his girl, I had to wonder if Rhianna and countless women who have been battered by their partners felt as insulted as I did.  Apologies are great when you’re late for a meeting or stain a borrowed sweater.  But when you try to throw your girlfriend out of a car?  When you smash her head into a window?    When you punch her in the eye?  When you repeatedly punch her in the face, WHILE driving a car?  When you utter the words “Now I’m really going to kill you” after all of this?  Oh, it keeps going…read the full police report by clicking here.

I’m sorry Chris Brown…but your apology just doesn’t cut it for me.  You need serious help.

    Howdy! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog
    platform are you using for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress
    because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good
    platform.
