This should be required viewing for every American who still believes the crap they taught about the rule of law in 8th grade civics class.

Jewell believed in ROL, he worked as a LEO for a number of years and was doing so right before he died. This is more about the abuse of power. From the FBI and most especially from the media. At least with the FBI you could kind of say they were trying to do the right thing and then got lost on the way and end up half destroying a man's life. They ended up being sorry about it and did their best to clear him. The media was straight up selling soap and happy to destroy a man's life in the process.

I've read that the lady that sparked the media witch hunt was horrified by how things snowballed. Many of her friends believe that the stress and guilt contributed to her dying so young. I think that adds to the poignantcy of how easily media can also be affected by mob mentality.

Not so. The FBI never apologized to Richard Jewell or accepted accountability for their attempted railroading of an innocent man. Go to 2:45 of the 2002 60 Minutes interview where Jewell is asked if the FBI ever reached out to him and acknowledged that they'd made a mistake.
