That’s one way to avoid jury duty.
One potential juror showed up this AM with a Bruins jersey on, screaming "Go Pats!" He was told to leave. No SPORTS gear is allowed. @NECN

Assuming no bias towards the alleged murder’s former team is allowed either. Maybe a small red flag.
Jury selection remains underway. Per the Associated Press:
“Jury selection is underway in Massachusetts in the murder trial of formerNew England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez.
Hernandez appeared Friday before about 125 potential jurors. A Bristol County Superior Court clerk read out the charges against him in the June 2013 shooting of Odin Lloyd.
Hernandez greeted jurors with a “good morning.”
Each juror had an envelope containing a questionnaire. The judge asked them to fill it out completely and said they shouldn’t discuss their jury service or the case with anyone.
More than 1,000 people are expected to report as prosecutors and defense lawyers haggle over who to seat on the jury. The process could take a week or more.”
Whomever they decide on, one thing is for sure. Aaron Hernandez still doesn’t give a fuck.
