Well, I shared a holding cell with Attias while I was going through my trials. Attias was obviously psychologically impaired and I would agree with the judgement that the "Angel of Death" was in fact a deranged young man off his meds. Jesse Rugge was my co-defendant. With respect to the specific issue of whether or not he should have been released, I do not wish to weigh in. My opinion would only be misinterpreted. However, I will say this. Jesse spent 13 years in custody. I spent 7. And every single day was torture. De Tocqueville. Foucault. Dostoevsky. "The degree of civilization in a society can be judged by entering its prisons."Interesting. Jesse Rugge is a free man. And he is also a living, breathing mirror for the rest of us to look into. For all of us to look into.
