Brother Of Unabomber Speaks About Death Penalty

The brother of convicted Unabomber Ted Kaczynski was in Bloomington Wednesday to speak to Indiana University students about mental illness and the death penalty. David Kaczynski now serves as executive director of New Yorkers Against the Death Penalty. He says the criminal justice system has become a primary warehouse system for people suffering mental illness.

David Kaczynski also addressed criminal justice students at Indiana State University, and spoke at a fund raising event in Indianapolis for the Indiana chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Kaczynski’s brother Ted is now serving a life sentence without parole. He is linked to the deaths of three people and the wounding of 23 others, after he mailed bombs to their homes and businesses. Ted Kaczynski was arrested in April of 1996, after his brother suggested to the FBI that a manifesto published at the demand of the Unabomber matched the style of his brother’s writing.
