Aaron Hernandez Is Going To Jail

I'm not sure how you shoot someone in the face and then decide, "Hey, I have super powers. I can shoot someone in the face and they live so now I must go shoot other people." New England Patriots star, Aaron Hernandez is now going to be available for cheap in your fantasy leagues. Find some guy who does not have internet access right now and trade him away. Police have an arrest warrant in hand for Aaron as they suspect him in the death of a semi-pro football player. The warrant is just for obstruction of justice because he destroyed a bunch of evidence. If he destroyed his stuff before they told him not to though, then they will not be able to make the charge stick. They just want him in custody. The problem is that unless they charge him with the murder of the man who was found about a mile from his house, he is just going to make bail in about two minutes. Obstruction bail and murder bail are two different things financially.

This is why I just can't get into NFL football. Too many rapists/murderers/animal abusers.

Have you ever noticed that it's way more than any other professional sport?

Cathy said...

Full disclosure - my home team is the Lions, so that might also have to do with my disinterest in NFL football.

I love college football though!

Dude smashed his home security system, turned over a smashed cell phone to the police and had a cleaning service at his house before the body was even cold.

Add in the lawsuit by the dude who lost an eye, the Pats clawing back signing bonus, the impending suspension by Goodell whether he is convicted or not, and Hernandez is royally fucked. Million dollar body, 10cent brain.

Football has that gladiator mentality that other sports don't have, not even hockey. It's not surprising that a lot of the guys involved go off the rail.

Hernandez seems like he was a handful before making it into the NFL. Drugs, possible gang ties, all-around smugness.

Not to compare the two situations, but I think this will wind up a lot like the Ray Lewis case in 2000. If they can't put Hernandez directly at the murder scene, he'll get popped for the lesser charge. The big difference is that Lewis hadn't been in much trouble before and everyone loved him. Hernandez doesn't seem to be as endearing.

I am not sure he did it, or if he is covering for someone. I think the guy who was killed was his girlfriend's brother or something, so maybe he's covering for her? Or just panicked that it happened at his house and destroyed everything?

Not sticking up for him, just wondering why they didn't arrest him for something other than obstruction?

Count Jerkula said...

I feel you on the Lions Cathy. I have a soft spot for them because Barry Sanders was so great in Madden Football on Sega and nobody deserved Matt Millen for all those years.

Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty? Sure things look bad, but we don't know anything. To accuse Aaron of murder until there are actual facts isn't exactly kosher, now is it?

Anonymous said...

I don't think anyone is actually saying he did it. But it looks bad--broken phones, smashed security systems. It looks sketchy, at best.

selenakyle said...

It all looks so bad, sounds so bad and IS so bad...like so much in the NFL.

But I would still totally love to see this dude nekkid.

Count Jerkula said...

@oopsy: innocent till proven guilty is only in a court of law, not in life.

surfer said...

Unless you're in Arizona - then it's guilty until proven innocent.

MadLyb said...

You don't destroy evidence in a murder case unless you have something to hide, period. He may not have committed the murder, but it's pretty obvious he is hiding something.

sandybrook said...

At least he hasn't tobe on the run yet to be found in a trash bin like Rae Curruth was but it doesn't look good for this gangsta right now.

phoenix said...

Very suspicious, but due to his quick thinking, it may not matter under the new legal norm that without surveillance footage of the crime, irrefutable DNA evidence, and a taped confession after taping his Miranda Rights being read to him, you have no case because common sense deductive reasoning is too abstract especially for guilty clients and their attorneys to wrap their brains around. And even if you do have all that, all he needs to do is claim his victim abused him, and all conviction bets are off.

That was obviously tounge-in-cheek, but makes clear what I think of the warped beyond recognition present state of our legal system.

@surfer, don't even go there. Jodi Arias is guilty as hell. See above.

Kels said...

Enty must be a girl. As if fantasy season started already. It's freakin June.

I'm a Ravens fan so we will see how this murder charge really turns out.

Kels said...

And is that a fuckin tattoo of Prince's the Artist symbol? The fuckin fuck.

Bacon Ranch said...

Kels I would suggest Ravens fans keep kind of quiet when it comes to players committing murder.

8=====D - RememberKermitGosnell said...

This guy looks like some Honduran mara or Japanese yakuza, all full of tattoos and shit.
If he is not guilty of this, he is a good conteneder for committing crimes in the future.

car54 said...

Dang, this is a big story here--local news pre-empted network programming for a couple hours yesterday to watch this guy's house and then we had to watch the news helicopter follow his car *yes, it was an SUV* drive to his lawyer's office.

It's like the return of OJ.

surfer said...

Umm, Phoenix - there are always exceptions.

I know someone there going through all kinds of hell because a cop supposedly got a "tip," and made it his mission to destroy this person. After a year-and-a-half of finding absolutely nothing, this cop decided to send people in wired, to try to catch this person in something. So, he lost his business, had his bank accounts frozen, had to hire a top criminal lawyer, and is fighting like hell to stay out of prison for something he never did.

So yeah, there are always exceptions.

Ray Lewis' sorry ass had been in plenty of trouble before he & his thugs stabbed those two men to death. Ray had help concealing things up to that point. Aaron is just too stupid to care about his criminal past

What do you expect in a sport where the athletes get paid bonuses for maiming their opponents?

Barton Fink said...

I don't know, I kinda like Aaron Hernandez. Maybe it's because he looks like he should be doing "homeless street drug addict doing gay porn for twenty bucks" videos.

Football is pretty masculine and does attract a certain kind of man, gay or straight. there's plenty of scumbags in basketball and baseball though. I don't know who this guy is, but I am sooooo excited for football season!!!! It can't come soon enough! FOOTBALL! FOOTBALL!
Off topic, this weekend is a full moon, in Saggitarius, so lots of fun, and positive vibes for everyone! hooray!

Ms Cool said...

I am with you Anna Nonymous - Football cannot come soon enough. Unfortunately, it brings with it WINTER. Go Pack.

Count Jerkula said...

ABC retracted their statement that a warrant was issued.

Hernandez has been banned from team facilities though.

He's also suspected of shooting a guy in Riviera Beach, Fl - the victim refused to cooperate with police but is suing Hernandez in civil court for damages - the bullet went up his arm and blew out his eye (no, I don't understand that either but whatever).

phoenix said...

@surfer, ahh ok, and right you are re: there are always exceptions. I recently stumbled upon a pro Jodi Arias blog, and almost lost my lunch reading some of the ugly convoluted thinking elevating her to near sainthood while dragging Travis' entire family through the mud. People have lost their collective minds, some of them. Get so wrapped up in their cause(s) they refuse to see the forest for the trees.

watching MSNBC during lunch and someone tried to deliver an "edible arrangement" to his house while they were reporting live from the curb. Surreal and brilliant marketing on EA's part!

Going to jail?

This guy looks like he just got out of a 20 year stint at San Quentin

People throw their hands up, arms straight out to protect themselves. So the bullet likely didn't go up literally. It went horizontally through hands and outstretched arms into eye.
