Former New England Patriots tight end, Aaron Hernandez is all we hear about but what about the person that was murdered. The victim’s name is Odin Lloyd, 27, a semi-pro football player.
I could care less about the rumors circulating in reference to what happened because Hernandez will have his day in court and that’s when the relevant facts will be presented by the defense and prosecution.
One thing is for certain; Even though Aaron Hernandez is being charged with first degree murder, he will develop a Cult following from this tragic event. Usually in high profile cases such as this, the media tends to focus more on the accused than the victims.
There's always a group of people who will have empathy and sympathy in their hearts for someone that the press may consider a villain.
I myself don't look at Aaron Hernandez as a villain but it doesn't mean that I look at him as a hero of any sort because of his star status as an NFL tight end.
I also will not sit back, read or listen to endless shenanigans that will continue to focus more on the accused than the victim.
Until this case goes to trial, we won't know what exactly happened but all I have to say is may Mr. Odin Lloyd, rest in peace.
