Unabomber unhappy with jail mail system

FLORENCE, Colo., Oct. 28 (UPI) -- The man who killed three people and maimed others with mail bombs is unhappy with his prison mail service, reports said Tuesday.

TheSmokingGun.com said while Ted Kaczynski is a model prisoner at the "supermax" federal penitentiary in Florence Colo., he has repeatedly complained of bad mail service.

Now in the fifth year of a life sentence, the so-called Unabomber complained about the mail system, which never seems to pick up his outgoing parcels in a timely fashion, loses mail addressed to him, and delivers items meant for other prisoners.

At the conclusion of one four-page memo to Florence's warden, Kaczynski helpfully included a neatly rendered drawing showing how inmates are supposed to leave items for mailroom staff.

But worst of all, according to Kaczynski, was the inconsiderate inmate upstairs who caused a flood by "hitting the shower button constantly."

"That shower makes a fairly loud clunk when it shuts off, so he kept me awake most of the night," Kaczynski wrote. "This is unreasonable. I shouldn't have to put up with this."
