Never heard of anyone apologizing for a killing, unless the death was accidental. Very few murderers have remorse, especially if it is calculated and/or they are crazed.Lance Crowley said:Did anyone apologize, like UBL, for this killing. If they did I missed it.
First, I want to agree that the article is inaccurate and likely propaganda.This “article” (I use that word loosely since it’s really propaganda) mentions two sources. First is "Dr John Simpson, executive director for surgical affairs at the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons". If you contact the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (http://www.racs.edu.au) you will find out that they do have a John Simpson that is the director of a department in their organization, but he is "Mr. John Simpson" and not "Dr. John Simpson". Apparently not a physician. His opinion is that of an office administrator.
As for Jon Nordby, PhD...assuming that his fellowship at the American Board of Medicolegal Death Investigators is true, it is not an honorary position. To be a fellow is equivalent to a certification from an organization. What that certification process entails...I do not know for this particular organization.The second source the article lists is “Jon Nordby, PhD and (sic) fellow of the American Board of Medicolegal Death Investigators”. A PhD can certainly call himself "doctor" and use the title, but again not a physician (M.D., PhD). I contacted the American Board of Medicolegal Death Investigators which is a department of the St. Louis University School of Medicine and asked who/what he was. Here's the response from Julie Howe, Executive Director, American Board of Medicolegal Death Investigators: "Dr. Nordby is not on the ABMDI staff but is a Diplomate with our organization." and "Dr. Nordby's statement is his opinion and does not reflect the ABMDI". The guy is using an honorary position to give himself credibility. Pretty scummy.
