Britain: police apologized for killing ex-football player

British police have apologized to the family of former footballer Dalian Atkinson for his murder.

New West Mercian Police Chief Pippa Mills said she was “deeply sorry.” about Monk's actions.

“Police uniforms do not give officers immunity from illegal actions or abuse of their powers,” & mdash; Mills said in a letter sent to the victim's family.

According to family lawyer Keith Maynard, law enforcement has been dragging out an official apology for too long.

Atkinson played for Aston Villa. in the 1990s. He passed away when he was 48 years old.
