Richard Jewell, Dead At 44

Tammy Bruce notes:

Richard Jewell has been found dead in his home at the age of 44. Jewell was in fact a hero by noticing the suspicious backpack left in Olympic Park, giving people enough warning and moving them out of the way, saving countless lives. Yet, even in today’s headlines, the fact that the FBI let leak that he was a (convenient) suspect forever tragically overshadowed his heroism.

Tammy writes that in her opinion:

The FBI gave the media a suspect in an attempt to quell the fears of the Olympics-attending public. Jewell was that sacrificial lamb and another travesty of the Clinton/Reno Department of Justice.

Matt Drudge dubs him “the man the media murdered”–of course, Jewell wouldn’t have been the first.
