Sorry isn't good enough in this case.
"I want to apologize for the attack that occurred. I felt that my life was in jeopardy, and I had no other options. I also want to ask you for forgiveness," Akbar told the 15-person military jury before deliberations began.
He should not be asking for forgiveness from the jury. He should be BEGGING for it from the soldiers he injured and the families of those he KILLED. And from God.
Hopefully he'll be meeting his maker soon.
