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.
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.
