Seemingly every day that passes the news for, the former New England Patriots Tight End, Aaron Hernandez just keeps getting worse.
How does it get worse than 1st degree murder charges? Being the prime suspect in a double homicide, that’s how.
Hernandez is now under investigation for a double murder in July of 2012, in Boston. According to reports the double homicide happened when an SUV,with Rhode Island plates, pulled up alongside the car both were stopped at a stoplight. Then gunfire from the SUV riddled the car killing both the driver and passenger and wounding another passenger.
It all stems from a brawl that the two men killed were involved in with a group Hernandez was with. Apparently Odin Lloyd, the man Hernandez is charged with killing in “execution style”, knew about the 2012 killings and was talking with people Hernandez did not like. Thus giving the Prosecution a clear motive for Lloyd’s killing.
The amount of involvement Hernandez had, if any, in the 2012 double homicide case is still very unknown. Was he the driver? The gunman? Or just a passenger?
One thing is certain. Aaron Hernandez is going to have his hands full to ever see the freedom he once had.
Is Hernandez a cold-blooded psychopathic killer? Is he just a dumb ass? I don’t know for sure.
What I do know is people like Geraldo Rivera need to shut their mouths. Rivera on FOX News went on about the NFL having a “gang culture”. That’s pure bull. He didn’t paint with a broad brush, he opened the paint can and just threw it against the wall. There are roughly 1.600 NFL players. How many Aaron Hernandez’ have we had? One. It’s just like any other profession you have some bad people but even the bad one’s aren’t killers.
I didn’t hear Rivera on this soapbox when O.J. Simpson was on trial. MOST athletes are from inner cities and crime and gang ridden places. Most of the time the kids who have good athletic prospects weed themselves out by either going all in, in the gang life or just letting sports fall by the wayside altogether far before they start receiving any letters or calls from college’s.
So there is no “gang culture” in the NFL and Rivera and other media types are simply flapping their jaws with zero facts to back up their claims and off the cuff comments.
Thanks for reading.
