Last Sunday evening on the Police Convention in Civic thread I posted material directed at VG that was incorrect and derogatory and designed to cause offence. I will not repeat the statement here as I feel it would make little further contribution. What I did was a considerable error of judgement on my part and an action that I am ashamed of and embarrassed about.
I would like to unreservedly apologise to VG for the offence that my post caused. I would also like to apologise to any other members of the Riot-ACT community that may have found my post offensive and to Riot-ACT admin, Jazz who had to respond to the mess created by my actions.
The debate here on Riot-ACT is often robust and reflects the broad range of views and debating styles of the sites community. Robust debate – accompanied by equally robust language – however is different from being deliberately offensive. Last Sunday I crossed that line. I was wrong to do so.
