“Fuck you,” writes a cheery UK reader. “You are utter scum in every way.” Well, I suppose I should apologise. In fact, everybody should apologise, all the time, for everything, according to English sorryista Amanda Woodard in the SMH:
So Jesse Kelly has been arrested on charges including manslaughter. His aunt was allegedly caught on tape suggesting a cover-up to her nephew. Police, according to local residents, have abused their powers in Macquarie Fields for some time, taunting, goading and beating up young men on the estate. And the Government has, for years, ignored the plight of the poor, dispossessed communities who live there.
Is it likely that any of these people will apologise for their role in this tragic story? Is it possible someone just might admit that they made a mistake? I think we all know the answer.
If they all apologise at once – the police, local residents, Jesse Kelly, his aunt, the government – it kind of cancels things out, doesn’t it? I demand that Woodard apologise for such a stupid idea.
