If you follow us assiduously, you know how much we have loved (and we still love) Manhunt Unabomber , the first scripted drama by Discovery Channel designed by Andrew Sodroski, Jim Clemente and Tony Gittelson and dedicated to Theodore John “Ted” Kaczynski, the American mathematician convicted of sending explosive postal packages to numerous people , causing 3 deaths and 23 wounded. Following the global success achieved by this TV series account dedicated to one of the most famous manhunts in the world, the crew has decided to produce Manhunt 2 which will be titled Manhunt Lone Wolf .
This second season will no longer be focused on Unabomber. The narrative will always be focused on one of the largest and most complex hunts to man, but the goal will be Eric Rudolph (Jack Huston), the terrorist responsible for the attack on the Atlanta Olympics of 1996 and other terrorist actions in the southern United States
But let's go in order and see in detail who Eric Rudolph is and what he will tell us Manhunt Lone Wolf.
All about Eric Rudolph, the Atlanta terrorist
The aim of the hunt for the 'man of Manhunt 2 will be Eric Rudolph, the US terrorist who the 27 July 1996 detonated a bomb at Atlanta's Centennial Olympic Park , during the Olympics of 1996. The man attributed the cause of the attack to
willingness to hit the ideals of global socialism, represented by the Olympics and supported by the Washington regime, perfectly expressed in the song Imagine by John Lennon, anthem of the games of 1996.
In the same statement that Eric Rudolph later made:
the aim was to confuse, anger and embarrass the Washington government to eyes of the world for its abominable role in the administration of abortion on request, and to cancel the Games, or at least create a state of insecurity to empty the streets around the event, to hit the large capital invested
Considered responsible for at least 3 killings and 150 wounded, in 2005 was sentenced to five life sentences . Following a confession with plea bargaining he avoided the death penalty and was imprisoned in the maximum security penitentiary in Florence, Colorado.
