Mark McGuire's Apology: Baseball and Restorative Justice
When's an apology not an apology? Does this question only apply to policies related to restorative justice and crime? I don't think so.
Mark McGuire's recent public apology for taking steroids during his career as a major league baseball player got me to thinking.
Though I'm no baseball expert I am a fan. I thought there was a lot of truth in this sportswriter's column. Can you apologise a little and cover your bases, so to speak? Why do we apologize ? Is the timing of one's apology important? Can a real apology help an offender "come clean"?
