    Yes. Richard was a good guy. I will never forget how the news media
    dragged his soul through the mud.

    Richard Jewell could be one of us. How many of work at concerts, or
    fairs sponsored by a city? He was the scapegoat

    By the way, I detest the news media. The alpahbet networks: ABC, CNN, CBS, NBC. The New York Times. Washington Post, Boston Globe, Atlanta Constitution

    Richard Jewell had been a Deputy Sheriff at some point before he became a S/O (his past as a LEO was mentioned by the New York times and He sued them and won after what they said. He was basically between LE jobs when he was working at the Olympics for a private security company.

    I'll always be glad he was vindicated, the Feds did screw up badly.

    BUT, lets not say it's not understandable why he was initially suspected. How many times have we heard of S/Os being caught "glory seeking"?

    Like the guy we talked about in the LODD forum here who shot himself in the chest then told the police he'd been shot while on patrol. Or the stories of S/Os who start fires (one guy burned down a movie set if I recall correctly) then claim credit for "finding" the fire. Some people want to be heroes, hell some of them just want to be considered relevant that they'll make up a story to get it.

    These people are a tiny minority, but it's enough to make people suspicious of the whole lot industry and everyone in it. It wasn't Jewell's fault, it's the fault of an industry with low sometimes non-existent hiring standards that is caught in a constant race to the bottom.....

    ...because I don't think that ANYTHING has been done, neither to commemorate Jewel, or the event. I think it's a tragedy which Atlanta would rather have the world forget, as quickly as possible, as well as Richard Jewel, alas.

    Not even on monday nights with Headlines. He has the mentality and the writing staff, now if only he was right-wing he'd replace Bill O'Reilly on FN

    A Bronze Statue Dedicated to Richard Jewel!

    REMEMBER: As a security officer, your first and primary duty as a security officer is to play the role of scapegoat when things go wrong, despite your many warnings and requests for alterations of policy which might have discouraged any calamity. After all, who are you? Just the grunt in the field, overshadowed by the morons in the ivory tower. You're not paid to think, after all!!!
    Richard Jewel, a security guard who was working Olympic Park the day a bomb went off, no doubt saved many lives with his alertness and quick thinking. Nonetheless, as in the Natalee Holloway disappearance where suspicion fell upon two innocent security guards, Mr. Jewel was condemned of the very crime he had risked his own life to avert, incurring much humiliation and economic hardship FOR SIMPLY BEING A GOOD OFFICER. Man, don't we all have similar stories of our own to tell? This brave soldier recently died of kidney failure, a true loss for us all...a testimony to the hardship we each face every day from people who devalue our role in their safety and well being.
    He and his mother were virtual prisoners in their own homes, reputations forever tarnished, possessions seized, and lured into situations where some innocent, recorded remark might have sealed their fate, despite Mr. Jewel's innocence. A friend had been coerced by the FBI to wear a wire tap and join Mr. Jewel and his mother for dinner at their home. Mr. Jewel was tricked into participating in what was supposed to have been a training video, actually an insidious effort to get Mr. Jewel to incriminate himself. Now remember here, lawyers typically work only to win cases, NOT TO EXPOSE THE TRUTH, and law enforcement seek only to CONVICT A SUSPECT, AND CLOSE THE BOOK ON THE CASE. Oh, and cover their own a**es in the process. Now to be fair, not all law enforcement personnel are like that. Unfortunately, however, the former seemed to have been the ones who got to Jewel first.
    I BELIEVE A BRONZE STATUE OF MR. JEWEL SHOULD BE ERECTED IN OLYMPIC PARK IN HIS MEMORY. IT'S ABOUT TIME A SECURITY OFFICER WAS PUBLICLY HONORED FOR A JOB WELL DONE. IF YOU AGREE WITH ME, PLEASE SOUND OFF!
