Richard Jewell Dies

Richard Jewell was a guy who just wanted to be a cop. When he reported the suspicious backpack in Atlanta's Olympic Park to police he was immediately dubbed a hero, but the FBI thought this somewhat-awkward fellow may have planted the bomb and then revealed it to get attention. They tried to get him to sign a confession using trickery and underhanded practices that were an embarassment to the Bureau and the country. He was cleared, but his life was shattered. Luckily, they found the real bomber, Eric Rudolph, and that has lifted any doubt people may have had about Jewell's part in the whole affair. He was a hero. R.I.P.
