I like your point. Can you force someone to plead guilty to something? No, it is their choice. So how can you force someone to "write a letter of apology"? If he is not sorry he tried to help Terri, how can he be Constitutionally forced to say he is?

Considering the fact that NOTHING in Terri's case made any sense - why would anything about this make sense?

Why would they consider Joshua's rights and consult the Constitution, when they didn't give a rip about it regarding a starving, dying woman? JK

Exactly. The story implies he apologizes for his actions, when really he didn't. He gave a Kerryesque "I am sorry that you didn't like that..." that didn't imply any regret for his actions.

He's learned deception and oblique-speak well from his Government-Intrusion Leftie idols.

Apologies are commonly ordered when THE DEFENDANT PLEADS GUILTY in a deal to avoid more severe punishment. The kid and his parent had already admitted to guilt in open court when the letter of apology was ordered.
