Whoa, first the officer in the Walter Scott case was charged with murder and now Aaron Hernandez is found guilty? Look at you justice system! Two in a row! That, my friends, is called a winning streak!
Got to say, I'm rather impressed. I mean, I don't really know why. Aaron Hernandez basically tried to get caught. He all but smoked pot on a dead man's grave. Ya know, after being filmed with a gun in his hand moment's before. The reasoning for him possibly getting off would be that no one is that stupid. Would have had to been quite the conspiracy for it to be someone other than the person that was admittedly present for Lloyd's death and in possession of a fire arm. Regardless, it probably took too long, but Hernandez is headed to a nice life behind bars. I guess the legal system is like elementary school homework, It's better to take your time and get it right. No matter how easy the question is, apparently.
I don't know if I am happy that they came to the right conclusion or concerned that I didn't think they were going to. I think it's some combination of both. Proclaiming the worst criminal in history innocent would have set quite the benchmark. After listening to 'Serial' and watching 'The Jinx' I was starting to think that the more guilty you looked the better chance you had at attaining freedom. If that were the case Aaron Hernandez would basically be Abraham Lincoln. Soon we would have bank robber's tossing aside their masks. Obviously no one would should show their face while robbing a bank. Conspiracy. Innocent! Why wait until night fall to murder someone when perceived guilt is a measure of innocence? It's a good day for humanity that a bunch of random strangers didn't talk themselves out of making the right decision. For one, because it eliminated a known threat to society, but also because the inevitable argument of "should Hernandez be allowed back in the NFL" from every single sports personality would have been too much for me to stomach.
P.S. If they did a mock sentencing on day one and told Hernandez he was guilty they would have known that very second that he was guilty. Has there ever been a person less emotional after learning he is about to spend his entire life in prison? The face he made is the same face I would make if someone told me they were canceling one of my favorite TV shows. To react that cavalier to a life sentence is not only a sure sign of guilt, but a blatant manifestation of a sociopathic tendencies.
