I don't remember hearing about when they caught this guy, but it is amazing that he could spend 5 years living off the land in North Carolina, don't you think? I wouldn't think that could be done, there are so many people in the eastern US.

Eric Rudolph has agreed to plead guilty to carrying out the deadly bombing at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics and setting off three other blasts in a deal that allows the anti-government extremist to escape the death penalty, Justice Department officials said Friday.

Rudolph, thought to be a follower of a white supremacist religion that is anti-abortion, anti-gay and anti-Semitic, was charged with carrying out a series of blasts in Georgia and Alabama in the late 1990s that killed two people and injured more than 120.

I heard on the news that him pleading guilty will give him four life sentences as opposed to the death penalty.

I think I might choose the latter over four life sentences.

Thats a bit unreal that it took the authorities 5 years to catch this man.

5 years of surviving in the woods of western North Carolina. That is pretty darn impressive to not get caught. I've been there, and the woods are quite big, but you'd think a hunter would come accross him before 5 years...

A defiant Eric Rudolph pleaded guilty Wednesday to carrying out the deadly bombing at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics and three other attacks, saying he picked the Summer Games to embarrass the U.S. government in front of the world "for its abominable sanctioning of abortion on demand."
