You always have to be wary of how much of the whole story an article like this tells, but the following quote stood out to me:
''I'm sorry that your leg is messed up..."
Not "I'm sorry for what I DID to you" or "I'm sorry that I MESSED UP your leg", but "''I'm sorry that your leg is messed up..."
His choice of words implies that he doesn't correlate his own actions with the harm that his actions have caused. He described the harm passively, as if it is a matter of circumstance; as if he had done everything in his power to prevent it.
It may seem pedantic to point out the distinction, but I think it probably is a true reflection of his attitude towards the whole thing: he doesn't want to take responsibility for the consequences of his actions.
Of course it's just one quote, with very little context. However, based on Phillips' long and notorious track record, I'm not very inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt. As the article notes, he has been convicted in this case. I'm referring not to whether he committed the crime, but whether he accepts responsibility for it. His use of language in this instance implies that he does not, and that ultimately his regret is based on the negative external consequences he now faces, rather than genuine remorse. It's dismaying to feel the need to say that about someone, but the pattern of disregard for others shown by his actions over many years make it difficult to have any other opinion toward him.
