I know you’re all torn up to hear that Eric Rudolph is miserable in prison.1
“Using solitary confinement, Supermax is designed to inflict as much misery and pain as is constitutionally permissible,” he wrote in a letter.
No, really? That’s part of that whole deterrent factor, ya know? Jail isn’t supposed to be a vacation. Maybe you should have considered the possibility of losing a little time in the mountains before you took to being a bomber, Rudolph?
Of course, he still has his life to complain about, unlike some of his victims.
My real question, I suppose, is why is this news? What is our attention being redirected away from?
