Cry Me a River!

Rudolph is whining:
Olympic bomber Eric Rudolph laments in a series of letters to a newspaper that the maximum-security federal prison where he is spending the rest of his life is designed to drive him insane.

"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.

Rudolph wrote that he spends 23 hours a day in his 7-by-12-foot cell, his only exercise confined to an enclosed area he described as a "large empty swimming pool" divided into "dog-kennel style cages."

"Using solitary confinement, Supermax is designed to inflict as much misery and pain as is constitutionally permissible," he wrote in a letter.
So is he expecting to be treated better than his victims. Seems to me he already is, so as Ann Landers would say " Quit yer Beefin' "

One of the main premises behind these Super Maxs is to isolate these notorious killers and have them wallow in solitude. I am a little concerned that the Gazette would give him any print at all, and embarrassed for myself for even bringing it up. Oh well.

Last word from me on Rudolph. What a whiner!
