UnSung Hero

Frog Marched by the FBI and the Mainstream Media as the fat rent-a-cop who lived with his mother -derided as the Unabuba-bomber who tried to pass himself as an American Hero who saved dozens of lives. Rest in Peace and Birthday Greetings to ya. He sued them all and the pond scum sucking bastions of democracy paid up or apologized.

ANSWERS.COM --Richard A. Jewell (December 17, 1962 – August 29, 2007) was an American security guard who became known in connection with the Centennial Olympic Park bombing at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia, United States. Jewell, working as a private security guard for Piedmont College,[1] discovered a pipe bomb, alerted police, and helped to evacuate the area before it exploded, saving many people from injury or potential death. Initially hailed by the media as a hero, Jewell later was considered a suspect.

Despite having never been charged, he underwent what was considered by many to be a "trial by media" with great toll on his personal and professional life. Eventually he was exonerated completely: Eric Robert Rudolph was later found to have been the bomber.[2][3] In 2006, Governor Sonny Perdue publicly thanked Jewell on behalf of the state of Georgia for saving the lives of those at the Olympics.[4]
