How Eric Rudolph Changed Domestic Terrorism

The bombing at Atlanta’s Centennial Park wasn’t the first terror attack on U.S. soil, but it changed how investigators and experts viewed domestic terrorism and the threat Americans posed to their own country. We speak with former U.S. intelligence and counterterrorism official Malcolm Nance. He now serves as the executive director of the Terror Asymmetrics Project on Strategy, Tactics & Radical Ideology, and authored “The Terrorism Recognition Handbook.” We also talk to Anthony Lemieux, director of the Global Studies Institute and a Professor of Global Studies and Communication at Georgia State University’s Transcultural Conflict and Violence Initiative. He’s also an adjunct associate professor at Emory University’s School of Medicine and Rollins School of Public Health.

Defense Attorney On Gaining Eric Rudolph's Trust

Georgia will probably never forget the moment 20 years ago when a bomb exploded in Centennial Olympic Park. The man behind that attack - and several others in the South - was Florida native Eric Rudolph. Rudolph was arrested after a five year manhunt. He's now serving life in a Colorado federal prison. Richard Jaffe served as Rudolph's defense attorney before he pleaded guilty in 2005. He shares how he developed Rudolph’s trust, and the legal journey he would go on with his client.

What Happens When The Homeless Have No Where Else To Go?

Open Door Community has served Atlanta’s homeless population for 35 years. But lack of leadership, gentrification, and rising maintenance costs has forced one of the city’s longest running shelters to close its doors. But Open Door is not the only shelter that might shut its doors. Mayor Kasim Reed has pushed for years to close down Peachtree Pine Shelter, a massive shelter that can house more than five hundred people. These closures have raised questions about what happens to a city when resources for the homeless community begin to dry up. We talk about these consequences and what the city can do with Richard Cho. He is Director of Behavioral Health at The Council of State Governments Justice Center and also served as former Deputy Director on the US Interagency Council on Homelessness. Below is a statement from Mayor Kasim Reed. He provides an overview of the city's approach to addressing homelessness: Mayor Reed signed on to President Obama’s White House Mayor’s Challenge to End

Why Did It Take 5 Years To Catch Eric Rudolph?

Twenty years ago, just as the world’s attention was focused on Atlanta for the 1996 Olympics, a bomb exploded in Centennial Olympic Park. Eric Rudolph was the man behind the attack along with three other bombings in the South. He eluded federal authorities for five years despite an intensive manhunt. Rudolph was a self-taught survivalist and spent at least some portion of that five years camped out in the Appalachian wilderness. But Kevin Reeve, who teaches outdoor survival skills, questions whether Rudolph was actually a survivalist. We talk with him, and former NPR correspondent Kathy Lohr, who covered the Rudolph case for years.

Owners Of Atlanta Gay Bar Remember Bombing

Twenty years ago this week, a bomb exploded in Centennial Olympic Park during the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta. However, it wasn't the only attack that happened in the city. The bomber, Eric Rudolph, also left a pair of bombs at a gay bar in 1997. It was called the Otherside Lounge. No one died in the bombing but several were injured. Owners Dana Ford and Beverly McMahon recall the attack and how it changed their lives.
