Scum, Scum Rudolph

Here's a story designed to bring some holiday cheer: Terrorist Eric Robert Rudolph isn't well pleased with the prison in which he'll die someday. Seems that maximum security incarceration interferes considerably with his hobby of murdering women, non-whites and gays.

Rudolph whines that the SuperMax Arms "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." Yet, despite his isolation, Rudolph manages to write his penpals at the local newspaper and get his letters ridiculing his victims out for publication on the terrorist Army of God website.

Needless to say, even the most contemptible prisoners should not be denied a healthy diet, exercise, access to legal counsel and the right to religious observance. But I'd hardly take Rudolph's word that he's been denied any of those. As for the likelihood of causing Eric mental illness, it sounds like Rudolph's the same sociopath he always was.
