In jailhouse movies, they say that you need to beat someone up on your first day to get the respect of the other inmates and avoid life of — shall we say, servitude. But in real life that doesn’t always go as planned and former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez found that out this week when he had an altercation with an inmate and now must pay the consequences.
In this case, the consequence for fighting has landed Hernandez in isolation for 30 days. According to NECN.com, Hernandez will be spending 23 hours a day in a separated cell to keep him away from the other inmates after he fought one of them earlier this week.
"One day after the altercation at the Bristol County House of Correction, NECN has learned former NFL star Aaron Hernandez has been moved to a more restrictive location in the jail, according to the Sheriff’s department. … He must stay there for 30 days, according to the Sheriff’s Department."
The situation for Hernandez continues to get worse and it’s bordering on tragic. It’s impossible to sympathize with a guy who allegedly murdered a friend in cold blood, but it’s amazing that Hernandez hasn’t hit rock bottom yet and it’s even worse when 30 days in isolation isn’t the west thing that’s happened to you recently.
