Aaron Hernandez Charged With Murder: MERGED

WTF? It's not easy to get arrested.  Many of us go through our entire lives and never get arrested or even come close to it.  By and large, only those with poor character and who behave stupidly thinking they're somehow immune or above the law get arrested.  Those of us who respect the law and who act responsibly don't get arrested unless the police screw up and arrest the wrong person.

Wow I wish I was born this perfect.

I suspect that Hernandez might have warned Lloyd previously about not speaking to those people because he was afraid that Lloyd would tell them something he did not want them to know. Not to apologize for any of this but I think Hernandez killed him because he thought there was an actual threat there.

Carruth's murder was far worse, killing the mother of his unborn child because he didn't want to pay child support.

gang mentality at its finest. it's also teen girl mentality, but for some reason the possibility of violence makes it less pathetic in the public's eye.

Since it is now a charge of first-degree murder in this case (along with 5 other charges, including possession of a gun without a license), not only should he serve many years in prison, but should be banned from the NFL after his sentence. 

If Aaron Hernandez is convicted of murder, banning him from the league would be merely symbolic. He'll never play again. If he's somehow exonerated, then a ban would be inappropriate. Given what we know so far, my guess is that Hernandez is done with the NFL no matter what Goodell decides to do or not do.

Commissioner Goodell: Let this be your opportunity to pull in the reigns on these players off the field so that issues, whether minor substance abuse charges or accomplice to murder, will stop happening as frequently as they do. 

I think smoking a bowl and killing someone should probably be two different categories. I wouldn't be opposed to some sort of minimum suspension for gun or assault convictions -serious suspensions and fines- but the courts should be allowed to do their job first. Goodell spends too much time acting as judge and jury already for my tastes.

This is where the police take the so called "weak circumstancial case" and flip Hernandez's boy to State's Witness.

Report: Aaron Hernandez Feared People Were Out to Kill Him, Stocked Up on Gunsby Luke Hughes on Thu, Jun 27, 2013 at 9:22AM

Aaron HernandezAaron Hernandez was living in fear in the months leading up to Wednesday’s murder charge, according to TMZ.

Hernandez was arraigned in Attleboro District Court on Wednesday, charged with first-degree murder and five gun-related counts in connection to the death of Odin Lloyd. The murder charge overshadows Hernandez’s apparent affinity for guns, but it seems he was stocking up on firearms because he was afraid people were out to kill him.

 

Hernandez grew up in Bristol, Conn., and had joined a local gang when he was a teenager, TMZ writes. Sources tell the gossip blog that Hernandez believed that people in the “gangster world” felt he owed them something.

 

The report also says that Hernandez became “paranoid” in recent months that people from his “old lifestyle” were trying to kill him.

Hernandez, who was drafted in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL draft, signed a five-year, $40 million extension with the New England Patriots in 2012. The new money could have prompted some paranoia from Hernandez about his past or caused old acquaintances to resurface in his life.

 

Hernandez is being held without bail in Bristol County House of Correction.

Also the article overlooks that, while Goodell has certain leeway as the commissioner, there is a CBA between the union and the league.  In the CBA - or at least I think so - penalties are outlined (first offense, 2nd offense, etc.).  Goodell can't just look at a guy who tested positive for weed for the first time, and suspend him for a season or two.  He doesn't have the authority.  I mean, he does, but it'll get overturned.  It is a contract like any other and a court will overturn his decision if he oversteps previously agreed-upon punishments.

 

Changing this would require an amendment to the CBA, with the blessing of the NFLPA who get nothing tangible in return, that gives Goodell the authority to arbitrarily decide sentences in the way the author describes.  And that ain't happening.

The "How To Throw Your Life Away" Handbook by Aaron Hernandez.

Chapter 1: What To Do When You Fear For Your Life

In the event you come from a background with gangs and drugs, escape to become a rich, good looking, professional football player and you fear someone from your old life is trying to come after you for money/fame/whatever, do NOT go to the police, or your team, or anyone else in a position to do anything for you that won't result in you shooting your fiancee's sister's boyfriend (FSB) in the back of the head execution style or three times in the back and two in the chest (depending on which report your read).

Chapter 2: Make Yourself Look As Guilty As Possible

 

When you finally get around to killing your FSB, make sure you call some homies from out of state. Don't take the phone from your FSB, so he can be sure to send texts to his sister about who he is with at the time of his inevitable demise. Also, make sure to rent a car in YOUR OWN NAME and make sure it shows up on a security camera outside of where you dump the body. Additionally, be sure to dump the body a half mile from your home, for maximum suspicion. Finally, make sure you're seen with a gun by YOUR OWN SECURITY SYSTEM before you leave to kill to kill your FSB, and make sure you are seen with the same gun on your own security system after you get back. For good measure, after you get back, turn off the cameras, so at the very least you will look like you're guilty, even if someone else actually shot FSB.

 

Chapter 3: Make Yourself Look Guiltier

 

Destroy the security cameras within your home. When the police come asking questions, smash your cell phone. Right in front of them.

 

 

...I can't get over how guilty he's made himself look without even trying.

This makes a lot of sense, as ESPN (In leaving no stone unturned) was interviewing the sheriff of the prison that Hernandez will be housed in and they were asking him about general procedure.

 

One of the procedures was an "interview" and this sheriff made careful note that they try to understand any "gang affiliations" so that they can place the prisoner properly.

BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- FOX 25 has learned exclusively that investigators are looking into Aaron Hernandez in connection to a double homicide that happened on July 16, 2012 in downtown Boston.

According to the Boston Police blog from that date, officers responded to the intersection of Shawmut Avenue and Herald Street just after 2 a.m. When they arrived, they found three people had been shot, two fatally, as they sat in a car at a traffic light.

The men were identified as Safiro Furtado and Daniel Abreu. The FOX 25 source said the men, who worked at a cleaning company in Dorchester, had just left a bar in the area.

Furtado and Abreu were sitting in the front seat of the vehicle when witnesses said the occupants of a gray or silver SUV with Rhode Island plates opened fire on it. The surviving victim was in the back seat. Investigators believed two others in the car fled the scene.

The source said that investigators were looking into Aaron Hernandez in connection to the killing.

On Wednesday, Hernandez was charged with murder in the death of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, of Dorchester.

An investigation is ongoing.

That's what I thought.  People don't kill friends because they are emotionally hurt when they see them talking to someone they don't like.  Hernandez did this because rightly or wrongly he felt Lloyd was falling in with people who Hernandez thought were out to kill him, and the murder was a preventive action.

 

These hard core criminals live in an ever shifting world of temporary alliances and concerns about who is changing sides and who is talking to cops all the time carrying on criminal activities.  It usually goes on until they each either get caught or end up dead.  These old gangsters you see in the news and in the movies-they are a result of a long winnowing down process.  Gang membership is not conducive to longevity.

Gotta hand it to the Pats' personnel people.  First they draft a wide receiver who goes to jail for patting his lawyer's butt in front of the judge in court, then they draft a serial murderer/hitman to play catch with Tom Brady.

It will be hard for the Jets to top this one.

 

Nothing will. Belly was getting desperate for another ring- win at all costs. This kid didnt fall to the 4th round because of pot. Teams knew, including the Pats that Hernandez was a very bad dude.

On CNN: Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is being investigated in connection with a double murder in Boston's South End in July 2012, a law enforcement source close to the investigation told CNN.

The source says that the Boston Police Department has located and impounded a silver SUV with Rhode Island registration placed at the scene of the murders and sought by police for nearly a year. Investigators now believe that Hernandez was renting the impounded vehicle at the time of the 2012 murders, according to the source.

Hernandez already is charged with first degree murder in last week's shooting death of Odin Lloyd. He is due in court at 2 p.m. to appeal a judge's decision to hold him without bail, the court magistrate told CNN.

Clearly, his homies are rolling on him with vicious alacrity!

I dont think they get a conviction without the weapon

Word. As EY said earlier, it'll be about the ballistics and the eyewitness testimony. I was talking to a lawyer friend of mine, and she said that as bad as ESPN is making it look, the only evidence that's troublesome to a defense attorney at this point is the casings from the rental car.

So you don't think eyewitness testimony is troublesome? Those two accompices of his are getting squeezed harder than a boobie in the neonatal ward at feeding time!

Patriots gave a known thug/gangbanger 40 mill. 

Someone's gotta "answer for Santino".  That someone: Kraft.  No way I believe he and the organization were unaware of this murderous scumbag's past when they extended Hernandez.

Eyewitness testimony has a history of being unreliable, but in this case it really depends on the testimony, doesn't it? If one of them rolls (and one probably already has) and says Hernandez did it, but there isn't any physical evidence that proves Hernandez did it, Hernandez's defense could say that the former "friend" is a mooching leach who only ever used Hernandez for money and is lying to save his own ass. He said/he said, or something.

 

If the two of them roll on him, it's more convincing but still uncertain without the murder weapon.

 

I'm pretty certain that unless they recover the gun and somehow prove it belonged to Hernandez/he fired it, in theory, any of those guys in the car could have done it. It's reasonable doubt.

 

I sort of wish I could be a juror on this case.

Kraft is unlikeable, but come on dude... you are saying the Patriots knew Hernandez murdered 2 guys, and was going to murder Odin Lloyd because he had info that ties Hernandez to the double-murder, and chose to ignore that info and extend Hernandez?

 

1. That is a dumber than infantile thing to say.

 

2. Even if I did want to try to take you seriously just for the sake of discussion, we are talking about a team that refused to pay Welker, and has refused to pay plenty of other still-capable of contributing players over the years. The Patriots are hardly guilty of prioritizing paying a player who can contribute over anything ethical.

 

I'd argue the Patriots are more likely to NOT pay someone over something petty. They, like most any team, had no clue what this guy was truly capable of. On the surface they all seem like knuckleheads to some degree. Sociopaths can and do find a way to blend in. Until they don't want to anymore. To have been this sloppy, there's a part of me that feels Hernandez didn't subconsciously want to have to hide this.
