Its good to have him step up and "apologize" but never heard him take the words back, but I did not see the entire "apology". When some one says that they are sorry that anyone was offended by the words that they spoke, BUT DOES NOT say that they were wrong and should NOT have said those words, its really not an apology, its just a bit of back tracking. So until I hear the Rev. Boyd say that he was "wrong" and should not have spoken" those words, then he really has not apologized. This "apology" is like a defense atty blurting something out in court that is untrue, wrong and not at all relevant and then after the objection is raised he just withdraws the question, the jury (in this case the public) having already heard what was said. Just a trick, not an apology and you know it Rev.

Just after the L.A. riots his predecessor, the Rev?? Cecil Murray, addressed a training session for Southwest Division and roundly insulted everyone, black and white officers. I am glad to see that nothing has changed for this 'church'. It was racist then and is now.
