A bomb exploded in a park, could carry hundreds of lives if a simple modest guard Richard Jewell noticed a suspicious bag under the bench and did not evacuate in time.
For a while Jewell became a national hero until someone let the press information that the guard himself and planned attack. Richard poured tons of malicious baseless accusations. Man of the hero turned into a dangerous psychopath. Even the fact that Richard lived with his ailing mother to care for her, the press presented as a psychological bias and impotency.
For unsubstantiated articles followed federal raids in the apartment. As a result, the police found no evidence of involvement in the terrorist attack Jewell, and journalists do not bother to apologize publicly for defamation. In 2005, all charges were finally dropped, but only two years later Richard Jewell died.
