Ten years after Pat Tillman's death by friendly fire, it's still not certain who shot the NFL player-turned-Army-corporal in Afghanistan. But one of the three Army Rangers who opened fire says he can't shake the fact that he might be at fault. "It would be disingenuous for me to say there is no way my rounds didn't kill him, because my rounds very well could have,” Steven Elliott said in an interview with ESPN that aired Sunday. Elliott, discussing the incident in the media for the first time, said he has been able to cope with the April 22, 2004, tragedy because of therapy.

For me it started on a Saturday morning about two months after we moved in. My car, parked on the street in front of the house, had been hit in the middle of the night. My neighbor dropped by to commiserate. "We asked for a stop sign, but they said there had to be five fatalities first. We've had a lot of injuries, but only a few fatalities so far," he said. Great, I thought. As my neighbor talked, he casually rested against the front porch railing.

At the home he shares with his parents, Bryan Stow does his best, but he struggles. It's hard to move his left arm and that hand will barely close. He must wear a diaper, needs help to take a shower and has to be reminded why a plastic shunt juts from the base of his skull. The members of Stow's family who addressed a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge Thursday wondered if the two men who attacked the paramedic and father of two outside Dodger Stadium in 2011 knew any of that, or if they cared.

Speaking in a soft, sometimes labored voice, the only U.S. Army officer convicted in the 1968 slayings of Vietnamese civilians at My Lai made an extraordinary public apology while speaking to a small group near the military base where he was court-martialed. "There is not a day that goes by that I do not feel remorse for what happened that day in My Lai," William L. Calley told members of a local Kiwanis Club, the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reported Friday. "I feel remorse for the Vietnamese who were killed, for their families, for the American soldiers involved and their families.

Matt Barnes stood with his back against the wall and once again apologized to his teammates for his inappropriate comments on Twitter, but the Clippers forward had no remorse for using a racial epithet in his tweet. Barnes was fined $25,000 by the NBA on Thursday for failing to leave the court promptly after being ejected Wednesday night from the Clippers-Oklahoma City Thunder game and for using inappropriate language on Twitter following his ejection. He told the media Friday before practice that his tweet was “bad timing,” but said his word choice is commonplace for him and his teammates.

A man suspected of attempted rape was arrested when he set up a meeting with the victim to give her a small box containing a finger he had cut off to show his remorse, authorities said today. Officers arrested Yoon No Yoon, 31, of Los Angeles and booked him at the Parker Center jail on suspicion of attempted rape. The finger was booked at the county coroner's office as evidence. The victim, a 23-year-old woman who met the man in a college English class, reported the attempted rape to police April 19. She contacted police again Monday night to report that the suspect had called her to say he was sorry and wanted to meet her at a fast-food restaurant and give her a gift.

He made that confession recently to Wayne Pacelle, chief executive and president of the Humane Society of the United States, when Pacelle visited him at his home in Hampton, Va.

So Pat Nolan, the former Republican assemblyman from Glendale-Pasadena, has found a sympathetic forum on the pages of the California Political Review. In this conservative journal he complains that he was a victim, having been "overzealously prosecuted for marginal white-collar infractions." Apparently Nolan has no remorse for taking bribes and betraying his trust. EMIL LAWTON, Sherman Oaks

September 17, 1999 | STEPHEN YAGMAN, Stephen Yagman is a federal civil rights lawyer who specializes in police brutality cases, and who frequently has sued the LAPD. He was suspended for a year from practicing law in California, beginning in October 1998, for overbilling a client
The state criminal bench is chock full of former prosecutors--lawyers who spent their entire legal careers believing cops, and who are highly unlikely to believe anyone who refutes what a cop has to say. The justice system suffers dearly from this phenomenon, which is in part the product of 16 years' worth of former Republican governors like George Deukmejian and Pete Wilson going to the prosecutors' pool for more than half of all their judicial picks.

Organized labor has become a fixture in U.S. politics and elections, donating money and manpower mainly to Democratic candidates. So it shouldn't surprise anyone when Republican officeholders try to persuade workers not to join a union. That's happening now in Tennessee, where the United Auto Workers union is trying to persuade workers at the Volkswagen assembly plant in Chattanooga to join its ranks. And while it seems perfectly fair for pols to urge workers to reject a union in this week's vote, some elected officials in Tennessee appear to be taking their advocacy a step too far. State Sen. Bo Watson, the Speaker pro tem, said Monday that if workers voted to unionize, it would jeopardize any future financial incentives the state might offer VW. That's no small threat; federal, state and local governments ponied up more than half a billion dollars' worth of aid for the initial 1,400-acre plant , which employs 3,200 workers.

A majority of voters want the California bullet train project stopped and consider it a waste of money, even as state political leaders have struggled to bolster public support and make key compromises to satisfy critics, a USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll found. Statewide, 52% of the respondents said the $68-billion project to link Los Angeles and San Francisco by trains traveling up to 220 mph should be halted. Just 43% said it should go forward. The poll also shows that cracks in voter support are extending to some traditional allies, such as Los Angeles-area Democrats, who have embraced the concept of high-speed rail as a solution to the state's transportation problems.

In the end, it was Heriberto Eddie Rodriguez's own words that saved his life. The prosecutor seeking his execution said Rodriguez's violent attacks against at least half a dozen Los Angeles County jail inmates, including one assault in which he beat and kicked a man to death, were proof that he was beyond redemption. But the 32-year-old former gang member took the witness stand in his defense and told jurors he was a changed man. He expressed remorse for his crime and denounced his membership in street and prison gangs.

In a posthumous memoir, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.) writes of fear and remorse surrounding the fateful events on Chappaquiddick Island in 1969, when his car accident left a woman dead. "True Compass" is to be published Sept. 14 by Twelve, a division of the Hachette book group. The book was obtained early by the New York Times. In it, Kennedy says his actions in July 1969 were "inexcusable." He says he was afraid, "made terrible decisions" and had to live with the guilt for more than 40 years.

INDIANAPOLIS - Manti Te'o completed his most grueling drill of the NFL scouting combine Saturday and, though his heart rate might have been up, he didn't appear to break a sweat. Facing a sea of reporters for the first time since news broke of the fake-dead-girlfriend hoax, the former Notre Dame linebacker stood at the lectern and answered questions for 14 minutes, showing poise, humility and remorse about his involvement - even though his level of participation in the ruse remains unclear.
