Liar's Contempt: Aaron Hernandez

Sheriff: Aaron Hernandez treating jail ‘like training camp’

The correlation between habitual liars and murder is not just something in a statistical category, it is in the mouths of liars, and in their actions.

"Just because Casey told a few mis-truths doesn't make her a murderer."  Cindy Anthony

A liar may just resort to murder should the liar be exposed.  They hate it.  It even drives them to take polygraphs.

A 24 year old multimillionaire will now spend the rest of his life behind bars, a few short miles from his former playing field, all because someone dared "disrespect" him.

It is the archive's heel of liars.

Liars grow up, from their earlier days, 'getting one over' everyone else.  This breeds a mentality that says to the liar, "you are smarter than him; you can lie your way out" and the speed of transmission (that which we use in Statement Analysis) increases, as the liar becomes more and more comfortable with lying and finds clever ways to mitigate the internal stress that lying causes in the slight disruption in the speed of transmission.

This moves from 'you're smarter than him' to 'you're smarter than everyone else', as the liar gets older but even this gives way to;

'everyone else is beneath you' as success in habitual or pathological lying grows.  

The 'insult' to the liar is this:

While he (or she, for regular readers here) holds the world in contempt as beneath him, and worthy of being lied to, the liar cannot abide the challenge of exposure.  This causes extreme internal stress and can, in the proper circumstances, lead to violence, particularly if the child was exposed to violence early in life.

The liar will not accept an insult and will take action.  In some cases, this "action" is violent, while in other cases, it is to ignore the lie (tangent) and go on the attack.

It is what we have seen in the persons of Lance Armstrong, and Hilary Clinton, as well as so many others.  This is why the word "ruthless" has been applied to both.  They will destroy anyone and anything that gets in their own way.

Sometimes people point to the polygraph and think, "He must be innocent.  Why else would he dare polygraph?" not understanding the nature of a liar.

The speed of transmission:

Liar A is asked, "What happened?"

Liar A must now reach into his internal dictionary of, perhaps 30,000 words (pathological liars are often above average intelligence) and choose which words to use, what order the information should be in, what information to leave out (no one can tell us everything), and which words to place in which places, in order to communicate what is desired.

This takes place all in less than a millisecond of time.

When one speaks from experiential memory, it flows easily, but when deception is present, there is a halt, or disruption in this speed of transmission, which causes stress, internally, to the liar.

This stress is reduced by success and success breeds arrogance, while the fabricator of reality holds the world in contempt.

When questioned, the reaction is not tepid nor mild.  

Note the description of Aaron Hernandez in the following article, particularly of his intellect and what happens when he does not get the "acclaim" he feels he deserves; even in prison.

This highlights what liars do, and how the pride they walk in, leads to the inevitable fall in life, as noted in antiquity.

Adolph Hitler, a most skilled liar, intended to end his own life, rather than end up in a Soviet prison.  In fact, his pride was such that he commanded his men to burn his body so that even it, his lifeless decaying body, could not be put on display after his death.

Germany had little left.

Its male population was decimated by the war, and its infrastructure all but agrarian with factories bombed, cities destroyed, and civilians who survived, facing Soviet vengeance, famine, disease, and coming death that would rival the death by bullets.  This included women and children.

Hitler, having made his "irrevocable decision" to end his life, ordered that Germany, itself, be destroyed.  He sought to leave nothing for the allies.  The German people "let me down" and now "deserved to be annihilated", in his view.

Liars are destructive.
Liars with authority are even more destructive.

Whether it be your personal life, your department, your business, or in any association, liars will bring damage, theft, loss, and trouble, as they will always put their own selfish wants and needs, above all others, without empathy for others.

Sheriff: Aaron Hernandez treating jail ‘like training camp’

The sheriff who had former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez in custody for more than 18 months said Tuesday that he’s a master manipulator and will probably do fine in prison now that he has been sentenced to life for murder.
Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson said Hernandez knows how to use his charm and manipulate better than anyone he has ever seen. He said Hernandez was generally affable and polite and would try to use those qualities to get what he wanted at the Bristol County House of Corrections.
“He would make every effort to get extra sandwiches,” Hodgson said. “He would just try to convince the officers to give him more than what they otherwise could get.”
Staff members were directed to treat Hernandez like any other inmate, Hodgson said.
Hernandez was convicted April 15 of the 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd, who was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancee. He will ultimately end up at the maximum-security Souza-Baranowski state prison. A lawyer for Hernandez did not immediately return messages seeking comment on the sheriff’s remarks.
After the verdict was delivered, staff from Bristol County brought Hernandez to a state prison not far from Gillette Stadium, where Hernandez used to play football in front of tens of thousands of cheering fans.
There, he told them, “I’ll miss you guys, but they got it wrong,” Hodgson said. “He didn’t really have much of a change in his demeanor. He pretty much still had a swagger in his step.”
Hodgson said the 25-year-old Hernandez has an ability to compartmentalize things and lock out the negative.
“He doesn’t really look at it as jail,” Hodgson said. “It’s more like training camp.”
Hernandez got into trouble from time to time in jail in Bristol County. He was accused of threatening to kill a prison guard and his family, and he got into a fight with another inmate.
Asked how he thinks Hernandez will do in prison, Hodgson said he thought he’d be OK.
“He’ll probably do fine. He’ll be able to talk his way through everything,” Hodgson said, adding that disrespect is a “hot-button” issue for Hernandez. “If someone’s trying to outwardly and aggressively disrespect him, that could create a problem.”
Hodgson said he had many conversations with Hernandez about his father, who died unexpectedly when Hernandez was 16. Hernandez would tell him how his father commanded respect whenever he walked into a room.
”His father was a huge, huge influence in his life and really his anchor,” Hodgson said. “If you disrespected him, it’s like you disrespected his father.”

Chaffetz: DEA Chief Should Have Revoked Agents' Security Clearance

House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) today reacted to the news that DEA chief Michele Leonhart will step down.

Leonhart’s decision to retire comes after a watchdog report about sexual misconduct within the DEA.

IG Report: DEA Had Sex Parties With Hookers Paid for By Drug Cartels reported:

Lawmakers have been pushing for Leonhart's ouster since her appearance last Tuesday before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, when she attempted to respond to the scathing government watchdog report.

A majority of committee members later said in a letter they had lost confidence in her and that she "lacks the authority and will to make the tough decisions required to hold those accountable who compromise national security and bring disgrace to their positions."

The IG report recounted allegations that drug agents attended sex parties with prostitutes, some funded by local drug cartels, in a foreign country. The DEA said the incidents happened in Colombia.
​Judge Jeanine: 'Wimp' DEA Chief Lacks Moral Compass and Backbone

Leonhart has said that she wasn’t given the power to fire the agents, and Chaffetz agreed that the law needs to change so that DEA chiefs can use more discretion. But he noted that she could have done other things, like allowed the inspector general to investigate or revoked drug agents’ security clearance.

“If you’re having these sex parties that are funded by the drug cartels, you can’t revoke their security clearance? Are you kidding me? Nobody bought that,” Chaffetz said.

Only Black Officer On Force Says He Was Discriminated Against, Then Wrongfully Fired

There is VT accompanying this. It won't play for me. I would like to hear what else he says that's not in the article. Maybe then we can get a better incite.

A police officer says he was unfairly fired after suffering through a year of racial discrimination at work.

Gerry Pickens was the first black officer on the 11-member police force in the 7,000-person town of Orting, Washington, before he was fired last year. Two months ago, Pickens demanded $5 million in damages from the city, and has threatened to file a wrongful termination suit against its police department if he does not receive the money.

"They took my manhood, my income, my security,” he told The Washington Post. “They thought I was just some dumb black guy who would take unemployment and kick rocks.

Pickens said he had experienced racial prejudice while on the job. From The Post:

He began writing down all the ways he thought he’d been discriminated against: co-workers who called him a “token black guy,” discrepancies in his vacation time and racial epithets shouted at him by a resident when he responded to a disorderly conduct complaint.

In January, after Pickens had threatened to sue the police department, he discovered his car had been vandalized with spray paint that read “n----r” on one side and “Sue cheif [sic] and pay” on the other.

Police Chief Bill Drake fired Pickens five days before his one-year probationary period on the force was scheduled to end and the officer would have been up for a full-time job offer.

Drake cited “unsatisfactory work” in his decision to deny Pickens permanent employment, according to Tacoma-based newspaper The News Tribune.

In a letter obtained by The Tribune, Pickens' lawyer, Beverly Grant, claims Drake made "racist and defamatory statements" about his former officer.

Orting City Administrator Mark Bethune told The Tribune he couldn't comment on the allegations because of the possible litigation, but he said he had "100 percent confidence" in Drake.

“I’ve never heard him make a disparaging remark about anybody,” Bethune said. “He would not tolerate racism in the department.”

Pickens told Seattle NBC affiliate KING in February that he doesn't feel safe in Orting.

"I'm in fear for my life because I don't know who in Orting is out to get me," he said.

OT Update:

Ex-chief in plea bargain discussions with D.A.

Fayette County District Attorney Scott Ballard on April 20 said talks are underway with the attorney for former Peachtree City Police Chief William McCollom following his April 15 indictment for misdemeanor reckless conduct by a Fayette County grand jury.

McCollom subsequently turned himself in for arrest at the Fayette County Jail and was released on bond.
The charge is in connection with the accidental shooting of his ex-wife, Margaret, in their Peachtree City home on New Year’s Day. The wound left Margaret McCollom, 58, paralyzed from the waist down.

Though no time table is established, McCollom will either work out a plea agreement or go to trial, Ballard said.

McCollom turned himself in at noon on April 16 and bonded out on a $5,000 bond on the charge of reckless conduct.

Ballard on Monday said he hopes to share the file on the case this week.
“It could be resolved quickly but I have no way to know,” said Ballard, noting that the parties are “having the typical talks that always go on.”
Maggie McCollom told the Georgia Bureau of Investigation shortly after the shooting that she was asleep in her bed the early morning of Jan. 1 when she was struck by a single bullet to her back. She told agents she believed her shooting was an accident.

William McCollom, who served as chief for fewer than three months before the shooting incident, had been on paid administrative leave from his city post until he resigned March 11.
Peachtree City is in the midst of a search for a new top cop.

The department’s ranking officer now is Captain Stan Pye, who has been serving as interim chief of police.
McCollom came on board as assistant chief in September 2012, and became acting chief when H.E. “Skip” Clark resigned in July 2014.

The thing that amazes me is no matter what, you saw women making comments like "he's still hot" or "I'd still do him". The mentality shows how little impact the reality has on most. That he's still "doable". To me, I would be fearful. I don't care what you look like. No different that Jodi Arias and all the men that still seem to be focused on her looks.

People are just that pathetic that looks or fame makes violent crime acceptable.

I read this article in my local newspaper and was amazed at how much insight the sherrif had into Aaron Hernandez' psyche. He sounds like his line of work has turned him into an unpaid psychiatrist. Even relating how Hernandez' compartementalizes the negative and doesnt really view life in prison for what it is, rather he sees it as a training camp! Wow! That is astounding!
I read something somewhere once that people who have done hard jail time are the most skilled at spotting liars! Probably because there are so many in the jails who are trying to pull cons like Hernandez. It is interesting because there is a local case near me where a criminal has been deemed "not of sound mind to stand trial" and so trial has been put off for 2 yrs and the guy is still under psych examination. I know someone who A) knew this person decades ago in high school and B) has done hard jail time decades ago. The media had shown this criminal's appearance before the judge which caused the judge to declare him mentally unfit to stand trial and this guy I know had just said "that guy is so full of sh-t. That's the way he acts ( saying crazy stuff) when he would get in trouble in high school." To me, what I saw on news, he does seem crazy, I totally get why the judge thinks he's crazy and maybe he is, but I tend to believe what the guy who knew him is saying about it being bull. Recent article in newspaper says psychiatrist is torn between 2 different diagnoses. Maybe he cant identify exact mental disorder cause ge's putting on an act? I just find it interesting that people who have done hard time or work for long periods of time in prisons like this sheriff seem to have very sharp insight into the psyche of deceptive individuals.

Following up on what Henry said, in long ago times I was living in a rooming house where one of my neighbors was an ex-con w/ 10+ years of maximum security behind him. He befriended me because he knew I read a lot, a habit he picked up in prison. With a man like this, his word was his bond so in spite of a criminal life he was an ethical and honest man within a certain context. For him, spotting a liar, especially in drug deals, could be a life and death situation. Having learned about SA I sure wish I had the opportunity to have another conversation with him.
And I think Peter meant Achilles amd not Archive in his text.

I think the Sheriff is right, hernandez will see this as a training camp, it has a strict regimen and a long list of rules, something he will have been used to as a football player.
Do this , don't do that, unlike other new prisoners, he has lived the same life except at the end of the day he got to go home or go party, do anything he wanted.

He will treat is as a new team, seeing who is who, who is in charge, the braggarts and boasters, the two faced, who can be trusted and who can't.

he will take charge in any sports options he has and if they have games, he will be first pick.

His celebrity as a sportsman will work in his favor, although there will be those who loathe the team he played for and may target him just because.

It will be his own ego that will do for him, he will think he is untouchable because he played NFL and was good at it, he is (was) rich and a celebrity.

He will use it to get what he wants and also when he feels disrespected, he will think he can snap his fingers and some flunkey will do his bidding.

It will last for a while if he is lucky, give it a few years in and he will just be another prisoner gone to seed.
He will use the gym at first since he has appeals and his hope is he will get out and he wants to be in shape so he can go back to football.

When all his appeals fail, what incentive has he got to stay fit?
He has a LWOP sentence, he is never getting out, why live a match ready life when at best you get a game of baseball or basketball every so often, or maybe they will have strength contests in the gym.
As the years pass he will give up,after all why bother?

He likely will be broke after payingall his legal fees and if the family sue him for wrongful deat and anything else they can think of.

No money, no fitness, no fame he will just be another joe doing life.

That, i think is what will hurt him the most.
The realisation he had it all, he was a god in the game and now he is nothing, has nothing, will be forever nothing till the day he dies.

That is when his ego will crash and burn.
