Chris Brown's Outburst & Apology

A day after storming backstage (and shattering a window and a glass bottle) after being interviewed on Good Morning America, R&B artist Chris Brown publically apologized for his actions. His reason for the outburst was that ABC’s interview exceeded the guidelines which the interview was to follow. He stated that he was disappointed in himself, and apologized to anyone who may have been startled by the incident. However, he went on to emphasize that no one was hurt, and he just had to “release the anger he had inside of him” that was brought about by the mentioning of his past relationship with Rhianna. ABC News was then quoted stating that "Chris Brown was invited on 'Good Morning America' to perform and to be interviewed. There were no talking points offered.” which is a different story than that of Brown. Despite whether any interview guidelines were discussed, this has not been the first time Brown has acted out violently.
At this time, ABC is not pressing any charges for the damaged property. Why, you ask? They are claiming that, since Brown and his crew left prior to the damage being discovered, they cannot directly blame him for the incident. Isn't his apology for the mess he made enough evidence to be able to press charges? However, i digress, as previously stated, Brown has a history of violence. This beginning with his abusive relationship with Rhianna and currently relating to his outburst on ABC. I think this incident makes it clear that Chris Brown is NOT by any means ready to jump back into the public eye. If he does so now, I believe we will be seeing more outbursts in the near future.
