David Kaczynski, who turned his brother Ted Kaczynski in to the FBI for being the suspected Unabomber, spoke at Indiana State University as part of the Anti-Death Penalty Memorial Day on Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2007.
“We’re fortunate to have him,” Mark Hamm, professor in the department of criminology and criminal justice, said. “He’s part of history.”
Kaczynski turned in his brother after noticing similarities between the Unabomber’s Manifesto and letters his brother sent him. The Unabomber had killed three and wounded 23 people by sending bombs to universities and airlines.
“Ted Kaczynski is one of the major figures in the history of 20th Century terrorism,” Hamm said. “It is important to look at all aspects of terrorism and mental illness is one of those aspects.”
David Kaczynski spoke on “The Death Penalty: Mental Illness and The Unabomber” at 2:15 p.m. in Holmstedt Hall, Room 103. He is the executive director of New Yorkers Against the Death Penalty.
