Richard Jewell Press Conference

Following his 88-day ordeal, Richard Jewell and his mother, Bobi Jewell, attend a press conference in 1997 after the F.B.I. took him off their list of suspects. He thanks his mother and then addresses the F.B.I. and the media. "The media cared nothing for my feelings as a human being," says Jewell. "In their mad rush to fulfill their own personal agendas, the F.B.I. and the media almost destroyed me and my mother." He continues, "I felt like a hunted animal, followed constantly, waiting to be killed." Related Article: Richard Jewell: History vs. Hollywood
