Somewhat odd, in my view, to add the Covington Catholic situation to the other.
In the case of the high school girl and the person that "outed" her, the actions of the young girl were clearly out of bounds, to the extent that she reportedly apologized years ago, back when the event occurred. So, clearly a mistake that she will wish to move on from.
Her "outer", OTOH, will have some defenders, but I think most individuals will view what he did, years after the fact and long after apologies were offered, to be vindictive, and caused a response (loss of acceptance at a state flagship university) to not fit the "crime". Whether he comes to view it as a mistake or not, I expect he would like to move on as well.
But, in the case of Covington, the young man made no mistake. A man came up to him, entered his personal space, beating a drum. He stood his ground.
No mistake made, nothing to move on from.
