Murderer Whines

Sphere: Related Content

Eric Rudolph--convicted of the Atlanta Olympic bombing and bombing of an abortion clinic--is upset about his prison digs:

FLORENCE, Colorado (AP) -- Olympic bomber Eric Rudolph laments in a series of letters to a newspaper that the maximum-security federal prison where he is spending the rest of his life is designed to drive him insane.

"It is a closed-off world designed to isolate inmates from social and environmental stimuli, with the ultimate purpose of causing mental illness and chronic physical conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and arthritis," he wrote in one letter to The Gazette of Colorado Springs.

Rudolph wrote that he spends 23 hours a day in his 7-by-12-foot cell, his only exercise confined to an enclosed area he described as a "large empty swimming pool" divided into "dog-kennel style cages."

"Using solitary confinement, Supermax is designed to inflict as much misery and pain as is constitutionally permissible," he wrote in a letter.
I'm trying to gin up one iota of sympathy., sorry dude. I have no sympathy for triple murderers.

I guess I feel even better knowing that both Zacarias Moussaoui, Richard Reid and Ramzi Yusef are living under the same conditions.
