Sometimes an apology alone is not enough

Rabbi Nuchem Rosenberg's attacker allegedly apologized for assaulting him with bleach 2 years ago, but Rosenberg doesn't accept, and honestly, I don't think he should have to:
Justice Joseph Gubbay asked Meilech Schnitzler to apologize to Rabbi Nuchem Rosenberg, before he got sentenced to five years’ probation for the December 2012 Clorex attack.

“I want to say sorry for what I did,” Schnitzler, 38, a Williamsburg fishmonger, said awkwardly. “Can you please forgive me?”

But the eccentric activist was having none of it.

“No,” he replied in Brooklyn Supreme Court, “because you didn’t harm me. You harmed all the children I represent.”

Outside the courtroom, Rosenberg, 64, said he “felt very awful” about the jurist’s unexpected olive branch.

“I’ve never seen such nonsense and idiocy in my life,” he railed. [...]

“For years, I have been insulted, excommunicated and even physically attacked because of my anti-abuse activism,” he said, adding he was nearly blinded by the bleach the defendant doused him with.

“This plea bargain has compounded the damage of my assault,” he added. “The DA shortchanged me, justice and the interests of children who are sexually abused by not bringing this case to trial.”

A spokeswoman for DA Kenneth Thompson said in a statement that the resolution was appropriate and came after prosecutors have “taken into consideration that this is the defendant’s first arrest, that the victim suffered no permanent or serious injury, and that the defendant will be monitored by probation.”
That's an excuse? What if a first-time offender used a fire hatchet to attack an innocent? Would that just warrant probation?

IMO, where Schnitzler blows it big time is that he isn't asking for jail time to show he's sorry. That would qualify as more of an apology, and show he's willing to brave the confines of a prison for the vile act he pulled. One I'm sure he knew was wrong to do.

For now, I'd say Schnitzler should be shunned by wider society. Unfortunately, the Satmar no doubt will think otherwise and their leaders are probably celebrating his actions.
