Eric Robert Rudolph
Eric Robert Rudolph is an American terrorist responsible for a series of bombings in the southern United States from 1996 to 1998, most notably the Atlanta Centennial Olympic Park bombing in 1996. Along with the Olympic Park bombing, he bombed a lesbian bar and two abortion clinics.
Until Rudolph made a statement claiming a motive for the 1996 Olympic bombing, security guard Richard Jewell was falsely accused of planting the bombs. The FBI named Rudolph a suspect in 1998 and added him to the Most Wanted Fugitives list and captured Rudolph in 2003. White nationalists considered Rudolph to be a hero. Rudolph was allegedly a follower of the Christian Identity movement after his mother introduced him to it. Christian Identity ideology considers people of white European ancestry "God's chosen people" and people of all other races condemned to hell. Rudolph also bombed an abortion clinic, killing a police officer and scarring a nurse for life.
Rudolph was given multiple life sentences and has been incarcerated in the maximum security Supermax federal prison since 2005.
