Supermax Inmate Taunts Victims from Maximum Security

 

It took 5 years to capture anti-abortion extremist Eric Rudolph and according to victims he taunts them from inside maximum security at the nation's most secure prison. Essays of Rudolph's are winding up on the Army of God website.

Rudolph is responsible for the bombings at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta and a Birmingham abortion clinic. Jeff Lyons, husband of a surviving victim, is concerned his writings may spark off other extremists to use extremist violence as well.

One prosecutor in the case against Rudolph, U.S. Attorney Alice Martin, said "An inmate does not lose his freedom of speech." However there is a process in place that allows wardens to reject mail if it is seen to incite harm against others.

  if they lose  
 
the constitutional right to firearms, why not free speech too? not meaning to disagree with their losing the right to firearms, more just curious how cirtain US constitutional rights are ok to remove from people but not other rights.

  Silly Christians...  
 
If they really followed Jesus they'd accept other people rather than trying to blow them up.

  Influence?  
 
If Rudolph's extreme 'writings may spark off other extremists to use extreme violence', then the idea that something like song lyrics having influence should be just as easy to argue. Rudolph is about as much a representative for Christians as Osama Bin Laden is a representative for believers in Allah.

If you take away their freedom of speech, what happens to the person who's wrongly imprisoned. If the justice system was foolproof, then you could consider such a thing, but we know that there are many wrongly convicted people. That's the delima of a free society.

Don't blame Christians, we have morals, and yes that makes us hipocrits at times. That being said, that doesn't make saints of people without morals.
It's a shame some people hide behind religion to speak what they think...

Anyone says something like this, 'writings may spark off other extremists to use extreme violence', it means they think your too damn stupid to think for yourself.

And how many people in the world follow religious teachings that are several thousand years old, and are quite prepared to kill for them?
