Rudolph Doesn't Like Prison. Boo Hoo!!

Eric Rudolph doesn't like prison. Why should anyone feel sorry for him? I certainly don't. He should have thought about that before he decided that he was going to bomb the Atlanta Olympics, a clinic, and at least two other places.

If I recall correctly, it was Rudolph's choice to plead guilty to the charges against him. He was given the choice of the death penalty, or spending the rest of his miserable life in prison. He chose the latter of the two by agreeing to plead guilty in order to remove the death penalty from the table.

"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.

What does he expect? Does he expect to be living in Club Fed where all the dirty politicians are sent for their crimes? The purpose of being where he's at is not to cause mental illness, although some would argue that in order to do what he did he had to be insane in the first place. The purpose of being where he's at is to ensure that he spends the rest of his life with as little comfort and fun as possible. The other purpose of being where he's at is to ensure that the rest of society isn't subjected to his cold, murderous rampage ever again.

Like I said, perhaps he should have thought about these things before he decided to go on his rampage. Maybe if he had, he wouldn't be in prison today. Innocent people would have never been injured or killed because of Rudolph. The Atlanta Olympics would have never been tarnished by the images of a bombing at the hands of Rudolph. But he made his CHOICE. The same can't be said for his victims. They weren't given a CHOICE. So excuse me if I don't have even a drop of sympathy for him. He doesn't deserve any!!
