Paul Hendrix resigns from USPSA under allegations of cheating

By now you’ve heard of Paul Hendrix, the USPSA Range Officer accused of cheating. Posted on the Area 6 Facebook page today, here is his “apology” and resignation:

To the members of USPSA Area 6.
I have spoken with people that I trust and respect their views.
In review it appears that I have fallen short in safeguarding the trust and duties place with me in this sport.
I apologize for those shortcomings.
I accept the full responsibility for my shortcomings, as well as, any pain or embarrassment caused.
I have resigned my membership in this great organization.
At some point in my future I hope to rebuild that trust.
Humbly Submitted,
Paul Hendrix

Many people, myself included, are rather underwhelmed by Paul’s apology. I hope that USPSA does the right thing and continues their investigation into the cheating allegations and if they are found out to be correct, issues a lifetime ban on Paul Hendrix from the sport. His resignation appears to be nothing more than an attempt to circumvent the proceedings against him and calm the storm.

    Really Paul? “it appears” ? ? ?
    C’mon man. Own your baggage.

  2. Original in quotes followed by Real world translation:
    “In review it appears that I have fallen short in safeguarding the trust and duties place with me in this sport.”
    In reviewing the recordings, I was caught cheating.
    “I apologize for those shortcomings.”
    I’m sorry I was caught cheating.
    “I accept the full responsibility for my shortcomings, as well as, any pain or embarrassment caused.”
    I can’t deny cheating as it’s clearly in the recordings, so I may as well admit it. Getting caught is embarrassing, and the people I cheated for may be embarrassed too.
    “At some point in my future I hope to rebuild that trust.”
    I hope in the future you’ll trust me again.

  3. “At some point in my future I hope to rebuild that trust.”
    Fool me once, shame on you. He will not get a chance to fool me again.

  4. As the video evidence keeps piling up, a permaban would be the right choice for uspsa.

  5. Way to go you scumbag, good to know your lying butt had a long career in law enforcement.

    Disgustedly, Jon

  6. To me, this calls EVERYTHING he’s had a hand in- including when he was in LE- into question. I have serious doubts his ONLY indiscretion was cheating while RO’ing gun games…
