Anti-Abortion Extremist Taunts His Victims From Prison
Via USA Today:
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.
Rudolph, who was captured after a five-year manhunt and pleaded guilty in deadly bombings at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta and a Birmingham abortion clinic, is serving life in prison at the "Supermax" penitentiary in Florence, Colo.
Housed in the most secure part of the prison, he has no computer and little contact with the outside world aside from writing letters. But Rudolph's long essays have been posted on the Internet by a supporter who maintains an Army of God website. The Army of God is the same loose-knit group that Rudolph claimed to represent in letters sent after the blasts.
In his writings, Rudolph reportedly mocks Emily Lyons, a nurse who nearly died in the Birmingham clinic bombing.
