In response to rkarp's comment:
I posted exactly one year ago to almost the day, that I saw AH in a club in NYC, private party, public club, smoking pot in public hanging with a few other guys who were bothering numerous other partiers.
Many were taking pictures and videos on their phones. For the Pats to plead hey didn't know IMO is a crock. Too many other people knew.
When I posted one year ago, of course I was asked for a link. No links, as I was at the party, but not taking pictures. Again, many were.
Hey Karp, i wonder if the, "many other people" who knew Hernandez would go on to be a murderer could be charged with accessory to murder...before the fact? i mean they could tell this guy liked to shoot people by the way he was smoking plants in that night club. They should have said something, and if you were there i am ashamed of you for not warning everybody. You could have been a hero buddy.
you see, it is postings like this that bother me. True champ is clearly a nit wit not capable of reading what I wrote, and not twisting it.
Never did I say the Pats should have know he would be a murderer. Never did I say the Pats needed a crystal ball. Never did I say smoking pot leads to murder. What I said is;
1) AH has a clear and public long term relationship with known gang members
2) AH has had multiple situations where law enforcement has been brought in with guns (before the Fla situation and the current situation)
3) AH rented a 2nd home in Mansfield and a known gang member lived there. Neighbors saw AH at that residence frequently
4) AH has had a chronic issue with drugs. (everyone can poh pooh this issue, but it is still illegal)
Roll it all up, and it means absolutely zero. AH is good to go...
My point is, and has been that all of the above should have made the Pats be extra dilligent with checking AH out before the big contract. If they were not extra dilligent, they deserve criticism. If they were extra dilligent, and saw nothing, they missed too many red flags to avoid criticism. If they were extra dilligent, and saw the red flags and ignored them, they deserve criticism.
no where do I conclude that smoking pot in a club means the guy would be a murderer.
