Eric Rudolph, who was finally captured in 2003, is due to be sentenced for the Olympic Games Bombing and the bombings of 2 abortion clinics and a gay nightclub. He will not be getting the chair.

Rudolph accepted a plea bargain from prosecutors who agreed not to seek the death penalty in exchange for the bomber leading police to a cache of dynamite he had stowed in North Carolina’s woodlands.

I can not particularly see why he would equate bombing an international competition as a protest against what he views as a corrupt government, but I am sure that a lot of people will feel safer now that he is no longer at large.
