Hearing could send Hernandez to general population

Aaron Hernandez AP

As Florio noted earlier this afternoon, Aaron Hernandez isn’t getting much access to others, with only an hour outside each day and a 9 p.m. lights out.

But he could have a new cell at the Bristol County Jail soon.

According CBS Boston, Hernandez will undergo another “classification review” today. That’s via Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson, who said that if Hernandez passes the review, he would go into general population.

Placing Hernandez around other inmates is a complicated issue for law enforcement, as they have to balance treating all inmates equally and protecting the famous from other inmates who might try to target them for their 15 minutes of fame.

    I think putting Aaron Hernandez in the general population is probably not the smartest idea if they want to avoid conflict. Serial killers and child molesters typicallly don’t do well in the general population.

  2. jersey73 says: Jul 1, 2013 2:20 PM

    He should be in jail…but shouldn’t general population be reserved for after he is convicted?

  3. thestrategyexpert says: Jul 1, 2013 2:21 PM

    Well one good stat going for Hernandez is that he consistently flunks the big tests. He’s a professional failure and that will work to his advantage here.

  4. scoops1 says: Jul 1, 2013 2:21 PM

    he might get shanked by some hostile jets fans…

  5. elwayfanj says: Jul 1, 2013 2:21 PM

    His life expectancy could go down significantly

  6. beachsidejames says: Jul 1, 2013 2:22 PM

    By the look on his face I think he’s starting to realize how bad this is.

  7. commonsensedude says: Jul 1, 2013 2:22 PM

    It’s not just the incarcerated gang members he has to worry about. Hernandez might not be safe from the inmates who are Jets fans.

  8. ctiggs says: Jul 1, 2013 2:22 PM

    They should send him there, he wants to be big and bad let him play with the big boys.

  9. blacknole08 says: Jul 1, 2013 2:22 PM

    Haha Gen population? He should be around the same amount of people that Odin Lloyd is around right now.

    This man is a cold-blooded individual with absolutely no respect for others around him. He’s safe where he is now.

  10. touchdownroddywhite says: Jul 1, 2013 2:23 PM

    With the fame and money he has, I would think keeping him from being able to amass a small army is a bigger concern than protecting him

  11. bigjdve says: Jul 1, 2013 2:23 PM

    If he didn’t want in GP, he shouldn’t have made some of the choices that he did.

    I don’t know what he is guilty or not guilty of. What I know is that he made decisions that put him in this situation.

  12. mangoldbond says: Jul 1, 2013 2:25 PM

    Bad move, he should go to em city with adebisi

  13. icefisherxl says: Jul 1, 2013 2:26 PM

    Good.

    you had so much,

    and gave it all away..

    WELCOME TO REALITY.. THIS IS YOUR NEW ROOMMATE.

    aint quite florida dorms, but hey, people are killing to get in there.

  17. allseeingone says: Jul 1, 2013 2:30 PM

    No special treatment for a 3 time cold blooded murderer. The prospect of going to prison and being among inmates is suppose to be a deterrent to low life’s when they think about committing a crime. Treat him special and other gang types like him will think prison isn’t so bad at all.

  18. biggs13 says: Jul 1, 2013 2:32 PM

    What did he score on the Wonderlic?

  19. ryann252013 says: Jul 1, 2013 2:32 PM

    He is most likely dead if this goes down. That is IF he really has gang ties.

  20. descendency says: Jul 1, 2013 2:33 PM

    Sending him to General Population as a famous (“alleged”) killer? I thought Massachusetts didn’t believe in the death penalty.

  21. kd75 says: Jul 1, 2013 2:34 PM

    I get arrested, I end up in Gen Pop. Rikers Island. With all the everyone. Nobody would be looking out for me.

    Why is he any different? If he can kill someone (allegedly) he can handle Gen Pop.

    He’s 6 foot 4 265lbs. And in the Bloods. I am sure he can handle himself.

    If you can’t do the time. Don’t do the crime.

  22. doe22us says: Jul 1, 2013 2:35 PM

    Damn now he has to cancel that reservation he made at Capital Grille, goodbye Fillet Mignon, hello prison chop suey.

  23. sbdt says: Jul 1, 2013 2:36 PM

    At least he’ll have access to the weight pile.

  24. vikinglory says: Jul 1, 2013 2:38 PM

    This guy was a loose cannon and general all around cement head long before this all began. At 23 you either grow up and stay on the streets, and let’s face it he made it and could live very comfortably on an NFL salary.
    Or you decide (as sadly too many of these young men do) to use your wealth and name to dog fight, bar fight, spousal/significant other fight, ya know, fight! AH went to murder.
    I would imaging the reality of life in the pen will be much different than what he surmised.

    Nevermind AH fearing for his safety. I’m worried about those poor souls in gen pop.

  28. phillybul says: Jul 1, 2013 2:44 PM

    Putting AH in general population would be doing him a favor. Being in the medical or PC block is 23 and 1 with no interaction with other inmates, so talk about watching paint dry lol. And as far as him being in general population, with his gang affiliations he wouldn’t have nothing to worry about plenty of bloods and or latin kings in the joint.

  29. zurnvs says: Jul 1, 2013 2:44 PM

    The choice of going into gen pop is his. If he wants to be protected all he has to do is say the word. If he gets attack, which is a good possibility. The choice will be made by the sheriff and he will be moved. Sheriff doesn’t want that on his death on his watch.

  30. txtuff says: Jul 1, 2013 2:45 PM

    He will not be put into General Population, at least not the kind everybody here is thinking the term means. Everybody in jail is under a certain classification and they try to keep them grouped together as best they can. In other words he will get out of Admin Segregation but he will still be classified with other inmates accused of or convicted of (in the past) the same charges he has against him.

    He will not be in a cell block with somebody accused only of theft etc..

  31. saint2112 says: Jul 1, 2013 2:49 PM

    Bristol County Jail IS NOT prison it is a county jail system alot different than a State Prison. Lets not get too excited about this yet.

  32. indytom87 says: Jul 1, 2013 2:52 PM

    At least in general population he will be able to score a rock hammer, dig his way out, and frame the warden.

  33. bennyb82 says: Jul 1, 2013 2:52 PM

    Put Hernandez and Sandusky in a cell and turn it into a reality show with all proceeds going to their victims.

  34. youknowwhatsgoodforshoulderpain says: Jul 1, 2013 2:52 PM

    I have a feeling that Mr. Hernandez is going to feel right at home in the general population. That’s where he’s probably “networked” the best, given his roots.

  35. kd75 says: Jul 1, 2013 2:53 PM

    My only problem with this is that if he can afford bail, it is his Constitutional right.

    Zimmerman admittedly shot to death an unarmed underage kid who was walking home and he got bail.

    Regardless of how you feel about either case, it is both of their Constitutional rights as US Citizens to have bail granted.

    I doubt Aaron Hernandez is hopping a flight from Logan Airport to Caracas without a passport. A 6 foot 4 inch 265 guy built like a brick and covered in tattoos won’t get very far in his escape.

    Especially considering how dumb he seems to be. He should be granted bail. With a monitoring anklet. Breathalyzer in his car.

    It is still innocent until proven guilty in the country I live in. If he can afford bail, he should get it.

    Actually Bristol is full of what would be his rival gang members if he’s really a member of the gang he’s reported to be. He will have to really watch his back there. For a gang member to “take out” or hurt a rival of that status would be huge.

  37. talkingproud says: Jul 1, 2013 2:54 PM

    Fantasy football has taken on an entirely different meaning for AH.

    Good fantasy team name: General Population

  38. 1967forever says: Jul 1, 2013 2:58 PM

    They should make sure he (and the other inmates) are protected from each other, until he’s convicted. If he dies before the trial, he’s exonerated. After the trial, send him to Walpole and throw away the key.

  39. 619sdfan4life says: Jul 1, 2013 3:05 PM

    Lol love the fantasy name…. And Even if he is gen pop. He will be protected by other Bloods and or his race. That’s how it goes.

  40. nsconman21 says: Jul 1, 2013 3:05 PM

    don’t drop the soap

  43. steelcurtainn says: Jul 1, 2013 3:11 PM

    Now in general population, AH can compare his tattoos with the other inmates, what fun. His “Born to play the game” tat really must have been referenced to his murder charges and future imprisonment.

  44. souldogdave says: Jul 1, 2013 3:13 PM

    Gen pop in County Jail, well, if it’s L.A.County jail be afraid. Not familiar with Bristol county, but usually it’s drunk drivers, burglars, and such. They should be afraid of Hernandez, not for him.

  45. cowpiesnotcowboys says: Jul 1, 2013 3:15 PM

    I hope he goes to Gen Pop and gets issued a very very slippery bar of soap.

  46. jetsfan79 says: Jul 1, 2013 3:16 PM

  49. ilovefoolsball says: Jul 1, 2013 3:23 PM

    I don’t think anyone would even recognize him.

  50. cliverush says: Jul 1, 2013 3:25 PM

    If convicted he will go to a Max-Sec where he will be welcomed by his gang maggots and protected according to a former inmate of the system. The county jail is a different set-up where the weak are protected from the vicious. He is going to a place he has desired all along. The Sheriff of Bristol County runs the lock-up in a strict manner but once in the Dept. of Correction system he will have access to many of the comforts of our idiotic liberal system of justice.

    —————————————————
    Bail is not a constitutional right. There are criteria for it. One is if he is a menace to the community. Being accused of shooting 4 people in a brazen way, with no remorse, seems to me the judge is well within the law to deny him bail.

  54. junglerat524 says: Jul 1, 2013 3:35 PM

    He should be in GenPop. Once the orientation process is over he should be moved in with other accused murderers, rapists etc. Most prisons have many GenPops based on the level of their accused crimes. Max, Mid & misdemeanor. This dude deserves no special treatment.

  55. junglerat524 says: Jul 1, 2013 3:38 PM

    I should clarify. Not prisons but county jails. Prison is a whole different thing.

  56. tombradyswig says: Jul 1, 2013 3:40 PM

    If Aaron “mass murderer” Hern ends up in gen pop, I’ll bet 37 cigarettes that he’s dead by weeks end!

  58. junglerat524 says: Jul 1, 2013 3:46 PM

    I doubt it. If they put him in Max (which they should based on the charge) then he’s only allowed out of his cell for an hour, usually alone to shower & “exercise”

    _______________________________

    Hernandez is not a small dude, but he is not a physically dangerous dude. He does his violence at the end of a gun. Weak people need a gun to settle a difference.

    No matter how big and bad Hernandez may think he is, there is always someone bigger and badder in jail/prison. Hernandez will be a victim when he hits the general population.

    Personally, I don’t find Hernandez very intimidating.

    Man his new life sounds terrable!!

  74. kingjoe1 says: Jul 1, 2013 5:37 PM

    I am not sure why he is going into general population, I would think that would only happen after conviction. Of course this is general pop in a county jail so…typically reserved for people doing under 2 years. If he is convicted than he goes to a state jail which is way more real than county.
    Keep hope alive, only about 18980 days to go Aaron.

  75. malibu67 says: Jul 1, 2013 6:14 PM

  76. bensstinkyfingers says: Jul 1, 2013 6:17 PM

    Bristol County Jail is considered kiddie camp. It is full of people like Aaron that have not been convicted yet and short timers, DUIs, drug cases . If he gets convicted and sent to Walpole State Prison, well that’s a whole new kind of party.

    If he did what he did, he deserves no better treatment than the average (killer) criminal. However, he has not been convicted and deserves not to be thrown to the wolves until proven guilty.

    If Hernandez goes to GP he’s gonna be wit da Homiez and Will most likely be a shot calla. Yall chumps that think he’d be a target dont kno nuthin bout dis Lyfe. AH got stripes and major street cred, he kept it hood so even tho that is what ultimately put him in the slammer, it is exactly why he wont be touched in GP. Plus he a ryda so if somebody need that fade, I dont think AH is gonna tuck his tail.

    If Hernandez were white, he’d have gotten bail like Zimmerman did, or would be put in Club Fed “for his own protection,” with conjugal visits and unlimited visitors. However, he bows gets the experience the maltreatment that all minorities get in this country, especially since Bush started two illegal wars and told people those darky Ay-tabs were all terrorists.

  83. lanman11 says: Jul 1, 2013 9:00 PM

    With the absence of any real offensive receiving threats at this point, Josh McDaniels needs to take a page out of the Charlie Weiss playbook so Brady can revert to the Brady of old (hard to believe I can say that). By that I mean the offense that had zero offensive play calling tendencies, and no name has been never wuzzes could become all star receivers. Any player on the field could be getting the ball and there was nobody to key on. It was small ball, but young Brady was deadly effective at it and controlled most games with it. Trying to go large with the caliber and experience level of the weapons they have is likely to result in turnovers that might make a young maturing defense struggle more then they have to. Back in the day, a punt was not a negative play. Today, the expectation level for that offense is so high, not scoring on every drive is seen as a failure of some sort. A return to the humble origins of the Charlie Weiss playbook, running the ball, controlling the clock, conservative decision making with the occasional trick play, playing great defense and special teams, and allowing Brady to play “Death By 10,000 Cuts” with the opposing defense may be in order.

    Seriously? FYI, Zimmerman is Hispanic as is Hernandez. The reason Zimmerman got bail and Hernandez did not is because what Hernandez did sounds nothing short of pre-meditated murder which is NOT the situation with Zimmerman.

    @briang123: You mean like former Patriots lineman Eric Naposki who is white and currently serving a murder sentence in the general population of the Connecticut State Correctional Facility? State your evidence for your claim idiot and spare us the tired rhetoric of your hysterical politics. Arabs aren’t usually terrorists per say, but Muslims certainly are.

    Why are there idiots comparing this case to zim?

    Does it really need to be spelled out how they are not the same? Use what God gave you and think a bit.

    Those clamoring for bail & comparing to Zimmerman: it’s not about flight risk, it’s about public safety.

    Hernandez has a resume of violent actions against others. He is a risk to commit another murder. Zimmerman had no violent history and was unlikely to pose physical harm to the public while awaiting trial.

    Many repeat offenders or flight risks are denied bail. It isn’t because of his race, it is because of his status and the seriousness of the accusations he faces. Let’s not forget that the current accusation is based upon his attempt to silence a witness to a former crime. How many more lives are in jeopardy if he is allowed to walk free?

    At some point the judge needs to weigh the potential danger to the public against the civil liberties of an individual. This has happened twice, and twice bail has been denied based upon evidence presented to the court.
