    I think it's weird that days after he wins a big case, and is talking appeal on his first case, he commits suicide, and then they say he wrote John 3:16 on his forehead? Seems weird.

    They were already suing him...now, I would imagine that they would sue his estate.

    Maybe if he was allowed to write out, he kept in touch with former teammate Tim Tebow who would probably have quoted Christian sayings often to comfort him... people often make fun of Tebow's open religious zeal but he is a caring guy

    This comes as DailyMail.com learned exclusively on Thursday that Hernandez was planning his suicide for weeks.

    The former football star even gave away most of his personal belongings to fellow inmates and covered the floor of his cell in soap, according to a well-paced source. If he lost his nerve he wouldn't be able to save himself as he would slip around and not be able to land firmly on his feet.

    Gotcha. Just seems strange. Are we going to just have anyone who ever played in the league donate their brains from now on?

    Ya think?

    He still had Life with no Parole. Those not guilty verdicts changed nothing for him.

    If the family agrees, why not? You aren't out there getting all these concussions, so why do you care what they do with their brain?

    Why not? The more the better, especially those that commit violent acts (and likely to have brain injury).


    I don't think they are getting so many brains that they can't study them all.

    This is textbook jailhouse suicide behavior. But the soap isn't there in case he lost his nerve. It's there to make it very difficult for the officers to hold him up to cut him down. Our officers carry around what is called a 9-1-1 tool. This is the exact one we use:

    There's a catch-22 with carrying these things around general population. Yes it's a useful tool to cut a hanging inmate down but you're carrying a weapon that can be used against you if something goes to pot. They used to be kept in what we call LCP's or the "bubble" but because our housing units are 2 floors and pretty big, if someone is in the back corner cell on the mezzanine is hanging up and the officer sees it, the round trip to run down the tier, down the steps, get to the bubble, grab the tool, go back up the steps, and get to the cell is enough time for someone to expire. This is what our units look like and as you can see it's a pretty good haul if seconds mean the difference between life and death:

    And I want that a-hole lawyer to explain negligence. Our job isn't an easy one and we can't see everything all the time.
