Apologies are meant to be tendered for acts of misbehavior, inaction, negligence, or actions exhibited under the influence of substances or persons that are beyond your control. It is not meant to cover willful actions exhibited by clearheaded individuals under the influence of their sane minds. For such apologies to be sincere they have to be followed by sanctions, reparations, and legislation with teeth to discourage, punish, and outlaw such dastardly behavior in the future. An apology is a not a panacea for evil! Sometimes retaliatory actions trump apologies and may be necessary to prevent future aberrant behavior.

You just made a case for remorselessness and the need to not apologise for ones misdeeds. In other words, face the consequences!
If consequential acts must follow misdemeanours or felonies, shouldn’t we question the need for rehabilitation and apologies then?
Apology is not a panacea for willful misdeeds. People inflict harm up to, and including death on other people and then apologize.
For example, there is no justification for calling a colored person, an ape. Some colorless people especially celebrities would do just that. Subsequently there is a worldwide clamor for an apology from the bigoted perpetrator. The apology under duress does not eliminate the inner hatred for colored people. This is “Apology my nyash!”
Sincere apologies rendered remorsefully for inadvertent acts are acceptable to all including the writer.
