Aaron Hernandez Found Guilty
Cnn.com- Former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez nodded no as jurors in his Massachusetts trial found him guilty Wednesday of first degree murder, which carries a penalty of life imprisonment without the possibility of parole.
Hernandez was also found guilty of unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition.
If anyone is surprised by this, then you probably were the kind of person who thought that OJ should have got off. Aaron Hernandez used to be my favorite player on the Patriots, make no mistake, but I do think he should rot in jail for the rest of his life. He's just another scumbag who thought that being famous would allow him to beat the law. Not how it works, sorry Aaron. He's due back in court in May for the trial of the double murder in Boston from 2012. At this point I would like to see him convicted for that too, for the sake of the families involved.
As a side note, some of my favorite players in professional sports have either been arrested, caught cheating, or killed. See: Hernandez, Michael Vick, Barry Bonds, and Steve McNair. It's kind of sad, now that I think of it. Tom Brady better be careful...
