Rudolph sentenced to another life term for gay bar bombing
Eric Rudolph is never going to see the light of day. The domestic terrorist is already serving a life sentence for the 1998 bombing of a Birmingham, AL women’s clinic. Let him rot.
Eric Rudolph was sentenced to life in prison without parole on Monday for three Atlanta bombings including the 1997 blast at the Otherside Lounge and the explosion at the 1996 bombing at the Atlanta Olympics.
…Before being led away by deputies Rudolph addressed the court saying that he apologized for the Olympic Park bombing – adding that if he could take back that night he would. But, he made no mention of the other bombings, an indication he has no remorse for the Otherside blast.
Four people were injured when a pipe bomb went off near the doorway of Otherside Lounge in February 21, 1997. The bombing occurred about 9:30 pm, just as the club was beginning to fill up.
After patrons were evacuated from the club, investigators discovered and detonated a second bomb that had been hung in shrubs overlooking the parking lot. Had it gone off it would have killed fire and police crews.
