I don't think he should have apologized. Over reaction by the police was just a way to embarrass Mr. Sykes. The truth is that profiling goes on all the time. Many times it's because of the car you drive or the neighborhood you may be riding through. One of my neighbors was harassed in his own driveway by the police. The police said that he didn't appear to fit the typical profile of the neighborhood. I am very disappointed that Sykes didn't tough it out.
