WRENTHAM, Mass. — Aaron Hernandez's home address was no secret after the media camped outside the massive house for days, and cameras caught him leaving, hands cuffed behind his back, when he was arrested for murder.

I'm waiting with 'bated breath to see how the authorities bungle this case, like they did with OJ, with Robert Blake and are now doing with George Zimmerman. Will it be by the police in gathering the evidence or will it be with bad decisions made by the lawyers? Or both?

Seems to me like the police are doing a pretty good job of gathering evidence in the Hernandez case. Some people can afford top-notch attorneys to create "reasonable doubt" and get away with murder. If that's a problem for you, put the blame where it belongs - the justice system.

SPORTS FANS are shocked--SHOCKED!--that a former Florida Gators football player from the Urban Meyer Era is charged with murder and remains a suspect in a 2012 double homicide. Huff Post online has a detailed story today itemizing Aaron Hernandez's "student-athlete" rogue behavior at Florida.

Aaron Hernandez's arrest and murder charges must persuade college and professional sports teams to be much more proactive from now on about releasing players who are convicted of criminal charges, repeatedly violate team rules, or additionally in the case of college players violate their school's student code of conduct. The days of college and pro coaches giving anti-social players third and fourth chances must finally be over. The employment contracts of every major and minor professional sports league should include clauses that allow teams to immediately void the contract of any player convicted of a violent crime against another person, any felony offense, and any civil lawsuit judgement in response to a player's egregious personal misconduct. 31 NFL players have been arrested since the 2013 Super Bowl, and earlier this week Vanderbilt University kicked four players off the football team in response to information discovered during the Nashville police and university's continuing investigation of sexual assault allegations against several players. Enough is enough; throw the bums out.

@bredpath: "Seems to me like the police are doing a pretty good job of gathering evidence in the Hernandez case." And I hope you're right, but my confidence is being shaken by the state's witnesses in the Zimmerman trial being repeatedly turned into defense witnesses by his lawyers. I hope you're not implying that the justice system should be changed to prevent cross-examination by the defense, or to prevent defendants from getting the lawyers of their choice. That would truly change "justice system" into "legal system".

Does this mean that no matter how much we spend on education we still have criminals left over? I thought we "Teached" that out of them.

Maybe the authorities are not bungling the Zimmerman case, maybe it's just the facts coming out?

LOL you can't compare Zimmerman case with this! One is a case of possible self defense one is a pre-meditated murder. There is a huge difference. As anywho stated, have you thought that maybe, just maybe the Zimmerman facts are coming out? That's what court is for.

31 players arrested since the 2013 Super Bowl. Glad the NFL feels the public should build stadiums for these fine young men to run around in on Sundays.
