Convicted "Unabomber" Ted Kaczynski, who terrorized the country with a series of mail bombs over nearly two decades, is fighting to stop a public auction of his diaries and other personal possessions.
But Kaczynski's five-year legal battle will come to an end soon unless he can convince the U.S. Supreme Court to review the case.
The property includes tools, typewriters, knives and a hatchet; Kaczynski's degrees from Harvard and the University of Michigan; and the glasses and hooded jacket made famous by an artist's rendering of the suspect. But experts say the most valuable items probably will be the 40,000 pages of Kaczynski's diaries and other writings.
"Personally, I don't think he has any rights to anything," Epstein [a victim of one of Kaczynski's bombs] said. "I think he abrogated all of his rights by his behavior."
Do you agree with Epstein that Kaczynski no longer has any rights to keep his possessions? What do you think should happen to his things: be auctioned or let him keep them?
