Patriots' Hernandez taken into custody
MSN ^ | 06-26-2013 | Staff

Posted on 06/26/2013 6:26:23 AM PDT by Red Badger

American football player Aaron Hernandez has been taken from his home in handcuffs after a Boston semi-pro football player was found dead in an industrial park a mile from his house.

Family members say the dead man, 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, was dating a woman whose sister is Hernandez's fiancee. Officials ruled the death a homicide but did not say how Lloyd died.

It's unclear why Hernandez, who plays for the New England Patriots, was being taken into custody Wednesday morning and put into the back of a marked police car.

State police have searched in and around Hernandez's home in North Attleborough several times. At least three search warrants have been issued in connection with the investigation.

unclear?

You don’t arrest someone for questioning

He is under arrest for a crime, he is undoubtedly going to be arraigned for something

It doesn’t matter who he played for, if he’s guilty he should face the full force of justice..............

This is really an unbelievable story. There are guys in sports that would be less surprising, but Hernandez seemed pretty bought into the Patriot way (I am not Pats fan, but appreciate their organization’s way of selecting and managing players). He had some issues in the past, but nothing of this magnitude.

When Hernandez was rookie with the Pats, Wes Welker said something to Hernandez in the locker room and in response he threatened Welker. A thug is a thug is a thug...[reported a few days ago in the NY Post]

They have him on obstruction of justice for destroying his cell phone and security system hard drives(evidence).
They will use these charges to hold him and most likely add more serious charges later.

My guess, based on no facts whatsoever, is that some of Hernandez's friends did the deed in an argument, and that he's hiding evidence to shield them and to protect himself.

Of course, the link with the sisters is kinda interesting....

Taken from his home in cuffs.... Sounds like he was under arrest. If they just wanted him to come in for questioning he wouldn’t have been cuffed, unless he went after the troopers. Destroyed his security system recordings and his cell phone. Highly suspicious if nothing else.... Surprised the vaunted Pats organization drafted such a questionable player.

Everyone responsible for the death of another is summarily executed? What world do you live in?

You know NOTHING of the circumstances behind the death, and yet you are eager for blood. Disdaining murder by encouraging more killing. You must be a really swell person.

Hint: there are MANY circumstances where taking the life of another is justified, and MANY MORE circumstances where there are enough mitigating factors that we don't execute those who are found to be guilty. Nice that you can jump right into the bloodlust.

Patriots usually do a pretty good job of not taking on trouble players or at least managing them. I guess Belichick thought he could manage Hernandez. Sometimes you just can fix thug.

the dude probably hit the girlfriend’s sister and needed to be rubbed out

that being said, I know it’s illegal to kill someone, but if a man is abusive, just sayin’ it’s not thata uncommon for the males in the fambley to take thangs into their own hands and not all wrong

otoh if the dead dude took money from Hernandez and didn’t deliver the drugs.............

At the very least; obstruction. Police got a warrant for his phone, it was received crushed... a hammer, I think.

If the dude needed killing that's a different matter. But wouldn't have a good azz-kicking come first as a warning?

It was a criminal enterprise back in the seventies.

In Oklahoma we used to say that the Dallas Cowboys always wanted players from OU because...they already had a probation or parole officer so they would fit in.

Belichek and the Patriots have gotten a bit cocky over the past few years when it comes to drafting and free agents. Haynesworth, OchoCinco, Dillon and a number of others were trouble and the Patriots welcomed them in figuring the “Patriot Way” would make everything OK.

They got burned this time.

I know this is nit picking but he did shoot another “friend” in the face. :-)

Belichek must have seen the writing on the wall. Picked up Tebow who can be converted into a first class tight end. The Pats won’t miss a step in the position.

Since the end of the SuperBowl, 28 NFL players have been arrested..

With Hernandez' arrest, what happens to the bonus they paid him?

Watching the video over and over..it seems that the cops sent two detectives who look like NFL linebackers to take him into custody. IMHO, they should have sent the two smallest female cops to arrest him..it would have made a great picture.
