Aaron Hernandez Found Guilty


  • Sam_Handwich

    This trial’s been going on about 20 miles away, so lots of local coverage which i’ve tried to ignore.

    But from what i’ve followed of the trial i’m surprised at the 1st degree murder verdict….no murder weapon recovered, no terribly clear motive.

      My wife’s cousin was on the jury. Can’t wait to talk to her!

    • Rambie

      I’m surprised too, the jury was out for awhile.

    • BearEyes

      Local news here in CT too since he’s a Bristol native. I thought it would be 2nd.

    • BlueberriesForMe

      I had read with the other 2 murders he’s been charged with that Aaron felt “disrespected” after someone spilled a drink on him in a bar. I can only wonder if Lloyd “disrepected” him in some manner or had relations with Aaron’s girlfriend on the side.

      but lots of evidence. Including photos that provoked their defense of, “you’re not really seeing a gun there…”

    And the Gay boys & Queens in Prison go:

    • Sam_Handwich

      He’s so far be segregated from the rest of the prison population because of gang related concerns.

      • TJay229

        That’s in JAIL… PRISON, is a different environment.

        • Sam_Handwich

          Yeah, that’s true….he’s been in county jail, now he’s headed to the state prison in Walpole

          It sounds like the Latin Kings will have a new member soon. Maybe it will be Mexican Mafia? Those are the Hispanic prison gangs around here.

  • David From Canada

    O.J. Simpson and Robert Blake were both found not guilty of sensational murders late in the last century.
    With Oscar Pistorius and Aaron Hernandez both found guilty of murder in recent times, maybe the tide has turned against celebrities and they will be treated just like common folk in the courtroom.

    • band

      Or maybe it’s just a matter of the evidence at hand and reasonable doubt.

    • pablo

      I thought Pistorious was acquitted?

      • David From Canada

        He is in prison, even as I type this. I saw a news clip of him playing ball with another prisoner in the open area.

      • ChitownKev

        No, he simply wasn’t found guilty of first degree murder. he was found guilty of culpable homicide.

  • bkmn

    Which Aaron is more likely to go to prison, Hernandez or Schock?

  • LovesIrony

    Thugs all over the nfl, glad they nailed one of them

  • Two days ago a downstate Illinois county sent Schock a $76K billto cover the cost of the special election to replace him.

    Bwahaahahah, that’s fucking hilarious!

    Hernandez is also being investigated for a double homicide – the shooting deaths of Daniel Jorge Correia de Abreu and Safiro Teixeira Furtado. And Alexander S. Bradley has filed a lawsuit (pending) against Hernandez for shooting him during a fight of some sort – I assume in the face, since Bradley alleges he lost his right eye as a result.

    What on earth was going on with this guy? Steroids and/or chronic traumatic encephalopathy plus gun culture?

    • Halloween_Jack

      A little young for CTE, but otherwise, yeah.

  • jomicur

    But…but…but sports build character! How is this possible?

    • Octavio

      I’d say he’s got about eight inches of character from the looks of it. Too bad he’s a sociopath. 🙁

      • noni

        Don’t they have more protection than that? Or was this just a “publicity” photo?

        • Octavio

          I was thinking the same thing. Where’s his cup? But maybe he’s just that bad ass? He’s obviously not afraid of much, wielding a gun at everyone who displeases him. :-0

          • pablo

            I’ve been noticing the absence of cups a lot the past 2 seasons.

  • loosevowels

    he”s got something to trade in the big house

    • pablo

      Looks like he didn’t use steroids, unless those nuts were even larger in the past. Also, I don’t know when players stopped wearing cups, but I approve.

      • loosevowels

        football players don’t wear cups

      • AT2016

        Have you checked out the pics of JJ Watt in his little tights?

        • AT2016

          One more Aaron

  • Freeman

    Let’s just say that a bunch of prison queens will be scratching each others’ eyes out over this one.

  • pablo

    A surprising verdict. I thought professional athletes were allowed to kill us.

  • BrianQTD

    Just goes to show evil comes in beautiful packages. Honestly the most (outwardly) attractive NFL player I’ve ever seen.

  • Jeffrey

    What a goddamned waste
