Now, prosecutors say the former NFL tight end was the shooter in the July 16, 2012, slayings of Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado, who were killed in a drive-by shooting after leaving a popular Boston nightclub.

“Mr. Abreu and Mr. Furtado were ambushed and executed as they drove home,” said Dan Conley, the Suffolk County district attorney. The Boston Globe first reported the indictment Thursday.

“For us, this case was not about Aaron Hernandez. This case was about two victims, who were stalked, ambushed, and senselessly murdered on the streets of the city they called home,” Conley said.

He better get out there and kiss another guy pronto if he doesn’t want to get the gurney-death penalty treatment.

I saw the tattoo on his back a few weeks ago and noticed something peculiar. He has Jesus praying up to his name as if he himself, Aaron Hernandez, is God. Hmmm...Interesting.

Question for Roger Goodell:

If a TWEET gets you a fine and sensitivity training what kind of punishment does letting a SERIAL Killer play for your team get you?

He also threatened to shoot and kill a prison guard while in there besides beating up another inmate. This is a guy who just wants to spend the rest of life in prison, so who are we to deny him?

Very early, he knew Hernandez was in a gang.

Know that my distaste for him is about him alone, not your Gators dfw. I think it’s funny that Franklin is handing him his ass on a platter in recruiting. The sycophants in Columbus don’t know what’s coming down the road in a couple of years.

3 murders in 2 incidents isn’t a serial killer. Psycho maybe, not serial killer. And given when they cut him (the minute he got indicted) they did take a pretty severe cap hit. The league doesn’t generally punish a team for bad picks, they figure the system does it for them.

Impact on NFL and presumption of ignorance

The charging of Hernandez for two separate murders, occurring nearly a year apart, raises serious questions about how Hernandez could live a double life of a triple-murderer and NFL player. How could his teammates and coaches have no idea? Were suspicions raised at any point, including by the league or players’ association? The fact that Hernandez kept a “flop house” in Franklin, Mass., which was allegedly visited by Patriots players, reflects even worse on their apparent ignorance.

Rewind: That Super Creepy Interview with Aaron Hernandez, 11 Days After Double Murder

It’s July 27, 2012, the first day of Patriots training camp, and Aaron Hernandez is all giggles with a media throng lapping up all the yuks about the former New England tight end’s summer vacation. Rob Gronkowski had just finished off a wild offseason during which Hernandez’s fellow tight end worked off his team’s Super Bowl loss to the New York Giants during what seemed like a five-month-long party, with the omnipresent paparazzi at every turn, and most every Boston media member taking pleasure in the ability to cover the cartoonish events.

“Aaron, was your summer as crazy as Gronk’s?

“Um, more private,” Hernandez said to the delight of the crowd surrounding him. “But I still had some fun.”

Like what? Can you give us some examples of the fun you had?

“That’s still private but…” Hernandez said to more laughter.

“Next question.”

Eleven days earlier, Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado were the victims of a drive-by shooting in Boston’s South End, murders for which Hernandez was indicted by a grand jury on charges related to them on Wednesday.

Eleven days.

Exactly one month later, the Patriots would sign Hernandez to a new five-year deal. He’d play one season under it.

That’s three deaths now officially attributed to Hernandez, who was potential trouble since Day One, even if we were led to believe it was only some silly marijuana that led him to fall in the draft. Hernandez’s rap sheet exploded like a piñata in the wake of the Lloyd accusations. The Patriots didn’t do any of that homework?

Maybe that research was just private like Hernandez’s summer, which turned out to be quite the eventful offseason after all. Nobody is laughing anymore.

That’s exactly what he is. He’s so narcissistic that any affront to him he sees as the ultimate crime worthy of death. He threatened to kill a teammate on the Pats once because he gave him an aloof answer to something, even if you can believe it threatened to shoot and kill a guard while in prison because the guard saw him stealing food. “WHAT? I cannot have extra food? But I am GOD! I therefore sentence you to death!” That’s how he thinks. Then the tattoo “hate me now”...That’s a message to all the people he assumes are jealous of him because he’s just so great. The Democrats would absolutely love this guy.

He deserves to be incarcerated for the rest of his life, and only because we don’t have the death penalty here in MA.

The theory is that the 3rd and most recent murder was due to the victim being aware of the previous deaths.
