He Has No Reason To Apoligize

From Fox News: The Ferguson, Mo. police officer who shot and killed an unarmed black teenager in August said in an interview aired on Tuesday that there was "no way" Michael Brown had his hands up right before he was killed -- disputing one of the core controversies at the heart of a case that touched off nationwide protests and racial unrest.
In his first public statements since a grand jury declined to indict him on charges of murder and manslaughter, Darren Wilson told ABC's George Stephanopoulos that Brown, 18, started an altercation between the two on Aug. 9 when he reached into the officer's squad car and began assaulting him, punching him twice in the face and reaching for his sidearm.
Wilson, who reportedly is 6-foot-4 and weighs around 210 pounds, said he reached for his gun only when he began to fear for his life, and he struggled with the 6-foot-3, nearly 300-pound Brown over control of the weapon. Shots were fired inside the car, causing Brown to flee, and Wilson then chased after him on foot, telling Stephanopoulos he had "to see where this guy goes."
According to Wilson, Brown then stopped, turned and began charging at him, at which point the officer fired several shots, hitting Brown several times, including a fatal wound to the head.
Wilson told Stephanopoulos he would have acted the same way if circumstances were repeated.
"The reason I have a clean conscience is I know I did my job right," Wilson said, adding that he would have made the same decisions had Brown, who was black, been a white man.  http://www.foxnews.com/us/2014/11/25/in-interview-ferguson-cop-darren-wilson-says-there-was-no-way-michael-brown-had/
Wilson has no reason to apologize.
He was facing a life threatening situation by a thug who had just robbed a store, assaulted the owner, was high on drugs and then assaulted a police officer.  Even after he was shot, the thug kept on charging the cop.
The cop did his job and the world is better off that he did.
Sucks the thug died, especially for the family, but let's face it, if the thug lived, who knows what other crimes this thug would have committed in the next 10-20 years.  At the rate he was going, he probably would have killed an innocent person or two.
Would the rioters be happy if the thug lived and went on to commit worse crimes?
Yeah, they would have been.
