"Apologising" to the Wrong Group

Let's face it. This apology has come straight from the powers that be.

How do I know that?

Well overlook for one minute the idiocy of holding one person responsible for the works of many in a non-hierarchical setting, and think about WHO he's apologised to: because if the professor was really taking responsibility and meaning the words he said, he should have apologised to THE PUBLIC for the property damage that ensued and not to the army for one lonely picture of one isolated incident involving a man in uniform.

Are professors really more concerned about our hard-working (and I mean that) armed forces than the long-suffering (and I mean that too) people of Bangladesh? Should anyone be?
