He had so many drops in the 4th quarter of the SB in 2011, I was wondering if he had money on it. Before the Welker drop.

I wonder if he realized after his second court case was over, he was stuck in the cell. At least while he was being tried on a separate murder, he had something to do and see every day.

It was probably best case. This is not a guy that could be released any time soon. Never heard him apologize or take responsibility. .He seemed like an awful human, not just someone who made a mistake. His misery is over.

I agree 100%. Best case scenario. I honestly can't see why we don't permit those prisoners who want a painless death to have it.

EDIT: It just occurred to me that most right-wing Americans have no issue with killing prisoners against their will, but would refuse them the right to die if they chose it. Bizarre.

Arkansas seems to be going nuts on executions lately. They're trying to kill 8 prisoners in 11 days before their drugs expire.

Interesting graphic from that article.

Interesting. It looks like more sentencing in 2016 and fewer killings. I would imagine with trump and gorsuch there will be no pardons or reversals for a while. Obama could have done more here.

Nobody will be able to ever convince me that killing someone who poses no harm is justified. If this guy is guilty, what a barbarian. I wonder why they didn't bother using DNA. Maybe they didn't want to bother, because he was a black guy in Arkansas.

It's amazing what DNA testing can do. We had a case that seems to going on forever. Vanessa Marcotte was the victims name. She was beautiful, so it got a ton of attention. Anyways, she scratched the suspects face. She won't get to see the case unfortunately, but the case is now a slam dunk. They went from no leads or proof to a slam dunk.

I don't agree with putting him to death but by everything I've read, this guy was a monster. Even if he didn't do what he got executed for (which he probably did), he was convicted of two other rapes and had a hung jury on another rape/murder case. The only reason that other rape/murder case wasn't re-tried is because he got the death penalty in this case. There are better poster boys for abolishing the death penalty.

Turns out Hernandez was bisexual and one of the guys he killed, who was his fiancee's sister's boyfriend knew about it. I thought he killed that guy, because he knew about Hernandez killing two guys at a bar that spilled a drink on him.

I guess none of it matters.
