New Netflix series delves into why a promising football player turned violent
American football is long filled with stories of murder and violence-from players who beat their wives and life partners, to OJ Simpson who are accused of having killed his unwife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman.
The action of no player was quite as confusing, like that of Aaron Hernandez, whose story is told on Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez, a three-way Netflix documentary version that will be launched on 15 January.
‘ Nobody killed two people allegedly and then played a whole season as a professional athlete, ‘ rang a voice-over at the beginning of the trailer for the series, in which the absurdity of Hernandez’s narrative is drafted. From 2007 to 2013 he was either a suspect or a defendant in six shootings in which three people died.
And in the midst of it, he was a star player at the University of Florida (despite being in hot water because of use of cannabis). He entered the NFL concept in 2010 and closed with the Patriots. In 2012 He signed a five-year contract extension of $39.5 million with the team.
The trailer for the upcoming doctor’s investigation is the ‘ why ‘ of the situation: How did a son of Bristol, Connecticut, found his way to drugs, violence and gang members?
It points to the early death of his father, a former rogue that first turned his life into 2006 due to complications due to fraction treatment. Hernandez was only 16 years old, and the boy apparently took his father Idol.
Brandon Beam, an insurance agent in Southington who played against Hernandez in practice every day as corner kick for Bristol Central, said to Rolling. Stone in 2013.
Some of the debt for the transformation of Hernandez in a violent man seems to be that the mother of the footballer, Terri, who was arrested in 2001 in a state of the Sona for the discussion of bets on sports, was placed.
‘ I was the happiest little child in the world and you bruised me, ‘ Hernandez heard in the trailer in a prison’s phone call to his mother. ‘ I had no one. What did you think I was going to do? Become a perfect angel? ‘
The journalist then Wetzel, however, was of the opinion that Hernandez ‘ was very afraid of his father ‘, so it is unclear what the family dynamics was real. The trailer also mentions Hernandez’s history of concussion-related injuries, which can lead to CTE, the protein that causes dementia and brain damage in the victims of concussion and trauma.
Hernandez was arrested on 26 June 2013 for killing his friend Odin Lloyd. In 2015 He was convicted of the murder of Lloyd. When he killed himself in April 2017-after he was declared innocent of the double murder on two office cleaners, Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado, he spent more time behind bars than on the field with the NFL.
