Aaron Hernandez, who committed suicide in jail on April 19, 2017, has been revealed by documents as having some strong associations with the street gang known as the Bloods. Records recently released from prison show that he had gang paraphernalia in his possession and was punished for this while in jail.
The reports that were released from the prison show the information that was contained in Aaron’s files. The ex-NFL football star’s files contained information like what he was disciplined for but it also states that he was a member of the Bloods street gang. Any prison inmate that is associated with a street gang has that information in their charts because it helps prison officials to keep the gangs separated, as much as possible.
CTV News revealed that the prison records of Aaron Hernandez stated that he had been disciplined once for “having ‘STG’ paraphernalia.” The acronym “STG” stands for a Security Threat Group, which in most cases refers to gang associations.
