This is video the Aaron Hernandez jury saw taken on the night Odin Lloyd would later be murdered. And it’s just chilling. I don’t know how you’re supposed to act before you ki– pardon me, allegedly kill … which is to say put a friend of yours in your rental car only to have him be found dead in a vacant lot near your house with five shell casings at the scene that perfectly match a sixth shell casing in said car, but I imagine this isn’t it. You’d think the decision to end a life — allegedly — would have you in a mood to do something other than get jiggy with it in a gas station parking lot.
On the other hand in 2012 Daniel Jorge Correia de Abreu and Safiro Teixeira Furtado were shot dead by someone who may or may not have then gone out and played an NFL season where he could have had 51 catches for 482 allegedly yards and five possible touchdowns, so who knows? Some people are better at compartmentalizing than others.
I know I’m not good at it. Because this image is going to haunt my dreams for a long time to come.
