L to r: David Kaczynski and Linda Patrik answer questions
from the audience.
David Kaczynski, brother of the so-called "Unabomber," spoke to about 80 students and members of the public at the kickoff event for National Criminal Justice Month on March 1 on campus. Click here for the podcast.

 Mr. Kaczynski and his wife, philosophy professor, Dr. Linda Patrik, talked about how they came to the realization that David's brother, Ted, might be the "Unabomber," their ultimate decision to talk to the FBI, and their struggle to ensure that Ted would not receive the death penalty.

While sharing his personal story of growing up with his brother, Ted, Mr. Kaczynski described how his involvement in his brother's trial led him to his work as Executive Director for New Yorkers for Alternatives to the Death Penalty and his efforts to improve rehabilitation and reentry services for prisoners.

This event was co-sponsored by the Justice Center and the Justice Club, and presented in cooperation with Alaskans Against the Death Penalty.
