There go his chances of playing football again.

What a waste of a marketable talent.

Even I find myself having a hard time saying, 'he's just a thug', because he was such a good football player.

Yes, the world is so much worse off because there's one less guy to carry a ball and run.
Professional football is a waste of humanity.

I think he meant he was a good shot.

The guy was a piece of ----. Had the world by the balls and squandered it.

Prayers for his daughter. Such a difficult past life because of his actions and a difficult future because of his actions. He can be remembered for many things, his lasting memory will be a selfish coward.

Yeah, I'm sure Hernandez would have been curing cancer if not for the NFL.

Life without parole?

No doubt.

Rip.

Acquitted on all counts, then hangs himself? He was a piece of shart, but doesn't that raise anyone else's Columbo flag?

Mustang,

He was found guilty of one of the murders and was serving life without parole.

Yeah, after I posted it I realized I was just thinking of the most recent acquittals. Still strikes me as odd that he would wait until after this recent verdict to attempt to hang 'em high.

He was vindicated of the two murders he apparently did not commit. He was serving life without possibility of parole for the murder he did commit. Sad story all the way around. His athleticism has nothing to do with it.

One way to decrease the prison population, hand out sheets and razor blades.

Notice the difference between the shapes of Hernandez's head - a little pointy - static.lakana.com ... compared to Monkman's brain chamber metrouk2.files.wordpress.com

of course it does. You wouldn't know him if not for that. he probably would have been a greens grocer down in boston if not for football.

When was the last time you heard about a greens grocer shooting someone? hmmm?

Oddly enough, that is now going to be tossed because he died while an appeal was still pending.

Aaron Hernandez's murder conviction is expected to be dismissed posthumously because of a legal rule called "abatement."

...

"The idea is that if an appeal hasn't happened, there's a chance that a conviction has an error in it," she told CNN. "Rather than have someone with that incomplete decision that they're guilty, the state chooses instead to say that conviction is abated -- as if it never had happened."

In the state of Massachusetts, Hernandez technically died an innocent man due to the legal principle of abatement ab initio, where if a person dies and has not exhausted all legal appeals, the case reverts to its status at the beginning; so the person becomes innocent.

Interesting....

I'm not legal expert but I think that statement is incorrect. The conviction is removed after death.

At a time when Komrade Bernie is bleating about ending the Death Sentence, Hernandez goes and carries one out on himself.

I'm not a fan of the death penalty...there are simply too many times when the court has gotten it wrong...but what I don't understand is why we commit a person to life in prison. When an animal goes bad, bites a kid, gets rabies, whatever...you don't stick it in a cage until it dies. No one in their right mind would consider that humane. But for some reason we do it with people.

Maybe if folks in this country cared as much about education as they do about football.

If money is the measuring stick, it looks like we do.

In any case, it looks like Hernandez did the Taxpayers of Massachusetts a favor.
