    Football player for the New England Patriots, thug, killed a few people on a couple of occasions, left a trail of evidence that I probably could have followed, thought that by destroying the video cameras on his home security system nobody would catch him, failed to take into account that his home security system was recording everything..

    What a waste. The guy had just gotten a $12.5 million bonus and a contract extension. Now he's dead at 27.

    I thought he would be despised by other convicts for squandering his opportunities for nothing.

    Unfortunately for AH, football skills and brains were not given in equal measure...:rolleyes:

    Whatever the case, his estate should be divided among the surviving families of his victims.

    No doubt his lawyers are in mourning.

    Maybe. And maybe the guy was just a jag-off.

    Problem is today's society puts celebrities and athletes up on a pedestal and pay them to be there. Some soon think they can talk or buy their way out of bad situations, and unfortunately they're right. Things that would land you or I in the pokey bring them nothing more than a slap on the wrist. Pretty soon, they think they're above reproach. Thank goodness some of them get what they deserve.

    I too have no sympathy for AH--only for his victims and their families, BUT at his level of celebrity and income, help was always available--he and his money-grubbing friends and family chose to ignore the issues and just stay on the "gravy train". This is America--if you have enough money or fame, you can get away with just about anything--everyone gets as much "justice" that you can afford. Elvis, Michael Jackson and Prince (amongst many others) were drug addicts that died at their own hands--and we even gave Elvis his own postage stamp--go figure :crazy:

    I'm not going to debate the point, but only pointing out that this is a guy that obviously needed the help after his father died. As the article describes, he was a happy kid who basically overnight turned because of the trauma. Nobody knows to what extent this event contributed to his killing as an adult, but it probably didn't help. That said, the look the other way attitude that existed as his athletic skills developed didn't help either. High school, college and pro all could've insisted that he get help, but they all chose to look the other way.

    Unless the family sues, then it goes to the lawyers.

    Maybe he might have saved himself if he'd made an effort to be a role model for teens. Instead he became a parable for mindless thug life.

    A judge has just vacated Aaron Hernandez's murder conviction.

    Makes no sense as his death doesn't change the verdict.

    All because of an obscure Massachusetts law.
