Hernandez gets 30 days in isolation


On Tuesday, former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was involved in an altercation with another inmate in the Bristol County Jail.  On Wednesday, Hernandez landed in isolation for 30 days as a result of the incident.

According to, Hernandez will spend 23 hours per day in a cell located in a more restricted area of the facility.  When he leaves the cell, he’ll be required to wear handcuffs and leg shackles.

The problem occurred Tuesday when Hernandez exited his cell without handcuffs and encountered the other inmate, who was wearing handcuffs.

“We’re investigating it now to find out why two inmates would have been out at the same time in that unit,” Sheriff Thomas Hodgson told  “I’m not happy that there may have been a breakdown in our system and our protocols.”

Hernandez, who has been jailed without bail pending trial for the murder of Odin Lloyd, and the other inmate had been taunting each other in the days leading up to the altercation.

    He probably prefers isolation to being among the rest of the knuckleheads.

    Send him to general population on Rikers.

    Not that they care – but it’s not really a level playing field when Hernandez is without cuffs and the other guy is cuffed.

    Richard Simmons could kick Mike Tyson’s butt if only Tyson was restrained.

    What a tough guy! Beating a guy who was handcuffed! He’s lucky he’s in isolation! Bitch!!!

    Guards were looking to see a fight?

    The other inmate probably said he was a Vikings fan so AH lost it.

    Of course he beat another guy who was wearing cuffs. What a man!!

    How come Hernandez had no cuffs on??? They think he’s safe to be around others?? Maybe closer attention needs to be taken by that jail he is in. He obviously can’t help himself, he’s a lunatic, leave him in solitary for a while. He can beat up the cell instead.

    I’m pretty sure Hernandez had a way to get one of the “guards” to help him get to the other inmate.

    Oh yes, like those honorable inmates.

    “Yo dog, if you weren’t cuffed I’d smack the hell out of you. You just wait ’til next time there is a security break and you’re not restrained. Then you really gonna get it boy.”

    Have they set a trial date yet? How long can you incarcerate someone without a conviction?

    Easy problem to solve, just put the Sheriff in jail too until he can figure out the answer to the problem. While they’re at it, investigate everybody and find out who else works for the jail that is breaking the law, I have a hunch there’s a lot of cleaning up to do.

    And what is the disciplinary action for the jail house staff for such a screw up?

  15. jazynaz says: Feb 27, 2014 1:32 PM

    wow, what a man, he beats the hell out of a guy who’s defenseless, in handcuffs. cowardly punk…make sure to keep his sorry butt in there! makes you wonder though, how there could be a breakdown in procedure that would have had the two close enough, and one in cuffs and one not, that there would be that opportunity to happen. hernandez is really circling the drain!

    The guards must have had it in for the other inmate. That situation was deliberately arranged.

    Nobody would care other than he is an NFL player.

    NFL has a huge image problem as long as he is in the news.

    Even Home Depot / McDonalds hires workers with better reputations.

    Why are people surprised about this? Hernandez learned everything he knows from his old coach.

    Bill Belichik can’t win anything without handcuffing his opponents too…ie Spygate, et al.

    He is a trophy in jail or prison. That is the mentality of Jail or prison. What ever inmate can get to him first by hurting him or worse will have status in that facility.
