The football world has their eyes at the Aaron Hernandez situation and that doesn’t exclude the Chargers world. Right now the cops showed up to Hernandez’s house with the K-9 unit and the dogs are sniffing around the house. Things don’t look too good for the New England Patriots tight end, but they still have not arrested him… at least at the time of this post.

The homicide investigation continues. If you want to discuss the frenzy that is happening in New England amongst Chargers fans, here is your location to do so. This could be an interesting day.

    My wife watches tons of police and murder shows. She says they’ll arrest him within 72 hours… Lol. I kinda believe her. She is pretty on point with that stuff.

        He’ll say “we will wait and let the legal process play out”. I’ve heard it a hundred times (it seems).

      I hear ya Paul. Pats, Faders, now Donkeys. Hate ‘em all. Wasn’t that a hoot with Glenn the other day?

    if he isnt smart he is going to say something to incriminate himself to a murder charge. regardless that guys going. there going to sit there and create as much pressure as they can on him till he slips, and even if he doesnt slip up they still got that obstruction of justice charge. its over for that dude. ive seen this all to often with people that i use to know. its a sad long drawn out process, i feel for the guy but getting rid of evidence the way he did, he dug his own grave. basically told on himself.

    • Stefanie Smith

      Is there evidence that he, Hernandez, got rid of the evidence? What if it was someone else inside his house at the time this alleged evidence was destroyed? And what evidence did he destroy? What evidence of a crime did he destroy? He’s been with his lawyers a lot. Let me tell you. He is not talking at all as his lawyers will be there at each critical phase. They would want to observe the search and where exactly the police are going and to ensure that there is no improper questioning. He will not talk–at least not right now.

      They have dogs there now. Police are checking to see if the dogs pick up the guy’s (the guy that was killed) scent at the house. That is important and good circumstantial evidence that the murder victim was there at some time. Maybe they are also trying to determine whether he was killed there and then moved after he was killed.

      Also, if he refuses to answer police questions and they want to question him, they will arrest him so that they can question him. However,once he is arrested, his lawyer(s) will be there during questioning.

      • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

        Great questions. We won’t know the answers today… But, if they arrest him.. That’s not a good sign. The fact that he is also accused of shooting someone in the face sort of lets you know who he is, though. When was the last time you, or anyone else you know shot someone in the face? Or, were even in a car when it happened? The apple doesn’t usually fall far from the tree. If he isn’t up to shady business, he certainly isn’t helping his case being associated with this type of activity, or people.

        • Stefanie Smith

          Sometimes, they arrest you so they can question you. He won’t talk, so they will make him talk to them–with his lawyers present, for sure. But even if he thinks he had nothing to do with it, if he gave the guilty party that rented car, helped the guilty party commit a crime, then there is accomplice liability(an accomplice can be charged to the same extent as the principal). There is always conspiracy to commit X (whatever crime) apart from a separate charge for a murder. The guilty person (if not Hernandez) could be charged with murder, while Hernandez could be charged with conspiracy to commit murder

          • 619chargers4life

            Exactly for my comment up top^

      • tubbs45

        Yes he destroyed security tapes and his phone after the news broke. The phone is the stupid part, FBI already has all of our phone records!

        • Stefanie Smith

          How do they know that he destroyed the phone? That he was the one that destroyed the security cameras in his own home or his phone? And if the phone is destroyed–where are the pieces? Do they have the broken phone –in order to conclude that he (Hernandez) actually destroyed it? Or is it just missing and the media is concluding the phone was destroyed? Does he have a new phone that he recently purchased? And since Hernandez is not talking, maybe the police have a witness–someone who saw him break his phone and destroy his own security cameras?

          And a warrant for a simple pen register – listing of all calls made from the destroyed phone is available. Since this is a local homicide, they could not arbitrarily use the FISA Act to eavesdrop or retrieve Hernandez’s phone records without a warrant. Information obtained through FISA – permitted in terrorism cases. Non-terrorism cases – need a warrant to get the phone records. So even with the FBI information gathering–it would not be freely turned over to a local law enforcement agency in a homicide case.

    Not to be too disagreeable… But, I kinda don’t feel bad for him. I mean, he shot someone in the face, popped drug tests, hangs out with known gang members, is acting shady, and is under investigation in a murder case where his rental car was found at the scene of the crime. He’s not exactly winning me over. Everyone is innocent until proven guilty, of course. But, murder case aside… He doesn’t sound like a good guy to me. I will say that the shot of the media storming him at the gas pump made me a little sick to my stomach. Such a shit show. The media needs to get a life.. no matter how big the sorry is. That kinda crap was what got Princess Diana killed. There should be a law.

    • Stefanie Smith

      Yes,you are right about that. Was his rental car found there at the site where the murder victim was found?

      • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

        I thought that is what I heard on NFL Total Access… I could be wrong. Was it at the scene, or did he just rent it the same night as the crime happened? It all just seems really fishy. If he just rented a car in his own hood, that isn’t a huge red flag. But, couple that with destroying security cameras, and randomly cleaning your house… That is suspicious, to say the least. It might be smart that he did it, actually. If there was evidence on the cameras, or in the house, they can’t use it to convict him now. Obstruction of justice is better than murder. Shady stuff, though.

        • Stefanie Smith

          I think what kills me is how little so many actually value their opportunities they are given. Here he is with everything and an opportunity many would love to have. He’s in this mess (whether he killed this man or not) because he didn’t remain humble.

          • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

            Seriously. I suppose it all comes down to what’s in your heart, no matter who you are, or what kind of money or blessings you have. That case where Ray Lewis was hiding in the trunk during that murder keeps popping into my head. That, and the fact that OJ pretty much obviously killed his wife, but still got off, and everything pointed to him doing it, short of him being caught with the bloody gloves on… makes me wonder if there is enough evidence.

          • Nick in PB

            So true Stefanie. He may have grown up in that world but to work hard enough to earn a paycheck playing pro football? He, and others like him, need to leave that world behind. He should be a positive influence on those around him. Time to grow up son, but you might have to do it from a prison cell.

    • tubbs45

      I agree with you on the crazy media frenzy, out of control. But you reap what you sew!

  • tubbs45

    He will no doubt get charged with obstruction of justice, which will entitle them told him through to until a trial. Destroying evidence is bad mojo!

  • Guest

    He will be on TMZ with his ” One undersized glove.”

  • BruisingChargers

    He will be on TMZ with his ” One undersized glove.” Seriously the guy looks guilty as hell. Not sure if he pulled the trigger but evidence sure points in his direction.

  • Alter Ego

    Nancy Grace should send him a thank you note.

    And people are worried about Te’O.. Pfffffttttt.
