Eric Rudolph, the convicted abortion clinic bomber and the perpetrator of the backpack bomb at the 1996 Olympics here in Atlanta, is sending out hate mail from prison.
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Victims of Eric Rudolph, the anti-abortion extremist who pulled off a series of bombings across the South, say he is taunting them from deep within the nation’s most secure federal prison, and authorities say there is little they can do to stop him.
I’m not sure why this is news. Here is a man who is obviously not on the same path as the majority of Americans, who will probably never be convinced that what he has done is evil, yet is protected by the First Amendment. He may write whatever the heck he wants, and having AP articles pop up about it is just media masturbation.
What causes the title of this post is the supposition that a man, who will die in his cell, can “get back” at the families of his victims. To anyone who is angered or disturbed by this man’s writings, especially the victim’s families, I say: “He will never ever breathe a free breath of air again.” To Eric Rudolph I say: “You are a dolt, dude, who is in prison. Congratulations on your letters, though.”
