Get the details that have just been revealed during the Aaron Hernandez double-murder trial on why Hernandez opened fire on a Safiro Furtado and Daniel de Abreu…
What they also didn’t realize is that their accidental bump in with Aaron Hernandez would result in the NFL star opening fire on the unsuspecting men after they left the club. At the time no one knew Aaron Hernandez was a killer off the field.
Today, Aaron Hernandez former friend Alexander Bradley testified about the shootings on July 16, 2012.
Bradley said Hernandez ordered him to pull up next to the victims’ car at a stop light, then repeatedly fired a revolver into the car. Hernandez reasoning was he believed the two men “TRIED” him in a Boston nightclub.
Relatives of the men wept as Bradley testified, prompting Judge Jeffrey Locke to call for a brief recess at Suffolk Superior Court.
“Bradley said Hernandez used a racial epithet and said, “What’s up now?” before firing. The former New England Patriots tight end is accused of killing de Abreu after he accidentally bumped into Hernandez and spilled his drink at the club. After the killing it’s alleged that Aaron decided to tie up loose ends so he attempted to kill Bradley by shooting him in the face months after the double murder. According to reports the former Patriots star became worried that Bradley would tell authorities about the earlier shootings. Bradley lost an eye in the shooting.”
Hernandez has pleaded not guilty. During opening statements to the jury, his lawyer pointed the finger at Bradley, saying he shot Furtado and de Abreu over a drug deal.
Bradley is currently serving a five-year prison sentence for shooting up a bar in Hartford, Connecticut, in 2014. No one was hurt.
In addition; On Friday, the jury viewed and listened to the tattoo artist who inked an image of a gun and the phrase “God Forgives” on the former Patriots star.
David Nelson, who operates Make Luck Tattoo shop in Redondo Beach, Calif., identified the tattoos he inked for Hernandez when the tight end visited the shop.
Nelson testified in a Boston court, according to the Boston Herald:
“Just like any other client, he came in, told me what he wanted and where he wanted it. He wanted a front view of a pistol, like it’s pointing at you, the cylinder part of the revolver that holds the bullets and some words on his hands: ‘Blood, sweat, and tears.’”
“Sometimes people get tattoos because they like a certain things. Sometimes they want to say something, sometimes they put tattoos on themselves for decorative purposes.”
Sorry we are NOT buying that hogwash. People do all kinds of strange things, but Hernandez gang ties apparently are strong because tattoos like that are road maps, awards or markings for successful kills and/or accomplishments. His tattoo’s tell the story as a marker so he can remember what he did and show others what he is capable of. Kind of a WARNING to not TRY him!
Prosecutors say the phrase and the image of a six-shot revolver are evidence Hernandez killed two men after one of them bumped into him at a Boston nightclub and spilled his drink in 2012. Hernandez’s lawyers deny that claim.
If proven guilty, Hernandez will serve 2 more possible life sentences to his first life sentence e received in 2013 for the death of his friend and semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd.
