Aaron Hernandez Telling Body Language As Guilty Verdict Is Read

Screen Shot 2015-04-15 at 7.43.11 AMRight before the verdict is read we see a cocky and stoic  looking Neanderthal  looking short foreheaded  Aaron Hernandez with his head held high.

As soon as he hears the verdict of “Guilty in the First Degree” his eyes close.This indicates that  he is closing off as this is not the verdict he expected to see ot hear.

Screen Shot 2015-04-15 at 7.44.17 AMHe purses his lips to hold back emotion and to deal with the dry cotton mouth as his autonomic system is kicking in.  Note that the he bald guard begins  looking in the direction of Hernandez’ emotional mother and girlfriend.

He tries to swallow hard as the cotton mouth is really getting uncomfortable as his tongue now protrudes.

As he swallows his eyes close in response to the frustration that he is unable to get their attention in making eye contact with them.

Hernandez physically moves his head to get a better look at his loved ones as he shifts his eyes all the way in their direction, no doubt wanting to make eye contact with them through their sobs. But as you will see later they are not able to look at him and he cannot catch their eye gaze because their eyes are closed shut, covered and dripping with tears.Note that the guard is not liking what Hernandez is doing as he observes what is happening.

The guard doesn’t like what Hernandez is doing  in having so much physcial freedom in turning his head  towards his loved ones, so he whispers something to him like “put your hands in back of you.”

Hernandez does what he is told and leans his head down as he is cuffed by the guard.

This the is reason Hernandez could not get satisfaction and some emotional comfort from his loved ones- his mother and his girlfriend. They were too busy covering their eyes and stifling their sobs and dabbing their fingers in their eyes to  blot  their tears. The mother’s tears were no doubt for the loss of her son whom she will never see again in this lifetime. The girlfirend’s tears were no doubt that she  lost her big bank bucks and now has to go at it alone and downsize.  While  Hernandez will still get his NFL pension  as long as he is alive, it will mostly go to paying off his lawyers as he had been struggling to pay them throughout the trial according to reports. Since money is scarce and lawyers fees are high, his girlfriend will no longer be living in the manner she had been accustomed to live and that means her home may even have to be sold from under her.

Aaron Hernandez finally got what he deserved, not just for killing this innocent man who happened to be his girlfriend’s sister’s boyfriend. He got what he deserved for what he did all his life. He was a thug and a bully and flew off the handle and harmed and killed others for pettry perceived slights. He was allowed to get away with everything for so long.

In Florida when he was in college he was allowed to get away with his egregious behavior simply because he was a star player. The NFL also turned a blind eye until they could do so no more. He has felt entitled all of his life because he was allowed to get away with it so much simply because he played football.

It is time we stop idolizing thugs and those engaged in criminal acts and turn a blind eye simply because they can catch a ball, run fast or tackle someone. Those are misplaced values. Now Hernandez will spend his life where he belongs and will never smell freedom. But unfortunately he will be hailed a hero in prison like OJ has been while incarcerated.

  1. The jury got it right and I am glad he is going away. Hernandez shows a blatant disregard for the rights and lives of others. Football is a “rough and tumble” sport. However, why not adapt principles of disciple rather than thuggery?

    When my son was young we signed him up for a Karate Course. The instructor began each class with a disciplinary tone, respect your elders, concentration and self control, etc etc. The idea is strength through the awareness of self and others. One principle states calamity springs from carelessness.

    Hernandez showed himself to be all about brute force, and next to nil on the intelligence/awareness scale.

  2. Dr. Glass , I’m sorry but your analysis is severely biased. You obviously convicted him in your mind prior to the verdict being read. Just because an athlete is successful and admired doesn’t mean they are a thug. Aaron was a gifted player with amazing athletic skill and thus he was loved by many, including myself as a Patriots fan. Yes, he made some very poor decisions and didn’t live his life properly but your name calling and insults are way out of line in my opinion and are hardly professional.

    1. kdriver take your animosity elsewhere not on this blog.Just so you are aware of how the US justice system works. I cannot convict anyone . Only a jury can convict someone or a judge. I looked at his body language and stand behind everything I observed. He may have been loved by many as an athlete and was a gifted athlete but he ruined everything for himself with his THUGLIKE behavior. Killing someone is more than a poor decision and his history of hostile behavior off the playing field is Thuglike. That is not an insult. It is a description of his behavior. Hernandez’ actions is a bigger insult to the family of the man he killed and if you can’t see there is a dead man as a result of Hernandez’ “poor judgement” than you kdriver need to examine your values and what you consider important in life. Calling someone out on their thuglike behavior is not an insult especially when you compare it to someone losing their life. I was indeed professional and gave a professional assessment of his body language behavior Your displacement of anger is very out of line. Please take it out on someone else, not at me. A jury convicted him to be in prison for the rest of his life for killing a man. He is being held accountable for his as you put it “bad decisions.”

    How do you know this about the girlfriend? this is a nasty and low class thing to say, even if you were 100% sure that it’s true.

    With everything i’ve read on your blog so far i’m surprised you have any professional reputation (maybe you don’t, i haven’t researched, just going by you advertising yourself on your site).

    1. Nothing nasty about the truth. natalie take your animosity and hate out somewhere else not on this blog. A man is dead because of Aaron Hernandez. As far as his girlfriend is concerned I called it as I saw it. He was abusive and is now a convicted murderer.
