Boo Hoo

Olympic bomber Eric Rudolph complains about conditions in prison.

Pardon me if my heart doesn't bleed too much.

It's prison. It's supposed to be harsh. This guy is a killer, and if he doesn't like prison, well, maybe he can time-travel back into the past and decide not to commit acts of terrorism. Recall that in addition to setting off a bomb at the 1996 Olympics, Eric Rudolph also bombed an abortion clinic and a gay bar. He is exactly where he belongs, in the exact conditions appropriate for him. A long life of punishment seems a fitting response to his crimes, since the death penalty is not available.
