He's -- now also being investigated in the murders of two other -- last year however back in April Hernandez was still portraying himself as a role model.
You're obviously a favorite in the Hispanic community what we get back to the community.
I does that decided BO role model USC Hispanics and look up to me I try to leave him in the right direction.
And hopefully they give a lot of Hispanics out there a drive to view to be able to be successful because there's not that many Hispanics and benefit.
Despite the fact that Hernandez is being held without bail he still has -- -- Yeah.
Joining us now from New York Fox News anchor Geraldo Rivera -- well -- is innocent until proven guilty and not -- NFL players all have there.
Cadre of hardcore fans of that doesn't really surprise me all that much does that surprise you.
He is a deep disappointment to me -- I must say and what is what is most interesting in watching the clip.
In April of him extolling the virtue of you know playing it.
Strayed and and on the straight and narrow today to the fans there.
That was two months after he allegedly shot -- Florida man in the -- taking the eyeball out he's now been sued for that.
He was never arrested because the allegation is that the complainant the person he shot in the -- in February this is before the homicides the alleged homicides.
That the the the person was his drug dealer down in Florida.
Here's a picture he took a bit about this is that -- he has tattoos on.
You know the -- -- the -- he's a member was a member of the Bristol Connecticut blood he's got tattoos gang markings everywhere.
You know he really is that they took the hood.
You know the thug out of the hood but they didn't take the the -- added that like you know he went to the NFL -- -- a forty million dollar five year contract and guess what he kept hanging around with the same.
-- -- -- And -- content miscreants.
And now he's facing not only the murder charge for Oden Lloyd the 27 year old semi pro person he alleged.
Allegedly assassinated -- mob style.
But he is also suspected and they.
Murders a year ago an unsolved drive by a BMW.
Pulls up and kills two guys and a Boston street corner and unsolved.
Homicide and that is you know it is very possible that Aaron Hernandez is the first mass murderer that we know of in the NFL -- Well he was it really radioactive to a lot of people early on in the process and the draft and yet.
The patriots that decided -- -- take a chance on Hernandez.
And now they're -- -- articles written today in the sports world or is this the end of this era for the patriots not -- not that means that.
-- -- people are wondering candidate not see anything and enhance last week said.
Good players can't talk this said that that he was now perfectly enough 1980 -- got along what everybody.
He didn't show any -- this sends -- out that he was.
Basically well liked him he wasn't you know as Tom -- well liked but he was well -- Whether he was like -- not -- I don't know but I do know that in Florida he was very problematic.
It's ironic that here you have Hernandez and Tim Tebow coming off the same Florida team that won the national championship -- you have the most.
You know who -- And straight -- ballplayers than Tebow and then you have Aaron Hernandez.
Who you know even admitted that became you know from the hood and from -- as I said the Bristol bloods.
-- but with Hernandez it doesn't seem -- that he ever shook his past.
He reportedly failed several blood tests.
He hung around with these people from Bristol Connecticut from his old neighborhood.
It just seemed to -- hanging out in nightclubs going around you know carrying a weapon.
If he's looking -- -- -- Hernandez who has had a dyed in the wool gang banger who got an awful lot of money and still couldn't use that money in the changes hampered.

Certainly got the country talking now her demeanor on the on the on the stand.
By the use of the word cracker and they -- and so forth.
What was your take away from that have a very -- -- what happened that act.
Well I yes I do I disagree with you somewhat in terms of -- then tell I I think I get her.
And she seemed to me in her own -- plan on polished way to be very sincere.
I thought that she was.
You know a witness who certainly on the you know in terms of her accounts to transcend her defiance.
Was difficult the first day.
I mean you can't blame her for not being able to read cursed and all the other.
I don't care -- bands are not actually change your star trying to figure you know or change your story but even in the context of that yes she's sitting next to.
The victim's mom and she's going easy on what she said.
You know in that context I can understand that I can also understand how she'd feel you know it's us against the world so why -- -- I feel love that she's really been pilloried in a way that perhaps -- I thought that the Don west the attorney went way too far.
They had heard the first day they should've let her go before they started banging her so badly that they generate Cincinnati awesome on it but hey let's not about -- -- -- had to hesitate to add.
The George -- is clearly winning this case it isn't quite as an attorney.
Given the testimony today that had -- and on his back being pounded by -- -- out and at a reasonable doubt however reprehensible.
