Letter: Flag burning apology off base

This is in regard to the Aug. 26 letter by Jeff Ackerman “An apology for flag burning.”

Although your apology was a step in the right direction, it was followed by blame and unrelated facts. The facts listed do not justify your flag burning actions nor do they pertain to the incidents.

One fact in particular that stands out for me is the woman whom you referred to in your letter passed away almost two full months after your flag burning, so what was the need to bring that up? That had absolutely nothing to do with the crime that you committed.

Rather than trying to look for reasons or others to blame for your very own actions, why not stand up and take full responsibility for them?

A friend of the deceased.
