My son, if sinners entice you, do not give in to them.

If they say, “Come along with us; let’s lie in wait for someone’s blood, let’s waylay some harmless soul;  let’s swallow them alive, like the grave, and whole, like those who go down to the pit; we will get all sorts of valuable things and fill our houses with plunder;  throw in your lot with us, and we will share a common purse”-  my son, do not go along with them, do not set foot on their paths;  for their feet rush into sin, they are swift to shed blood.   (Proverbs 1:10-16)

(masslive.com)—The double-murder trial of Aaron Hernandez kicked off in dramatic fashion on Wednesday, when defense attorney Jose Baez compared the state’s use of a key witness, Alexander Bradley, as “making a deal with the devil.”

“It takes a lot of nerve to put that man on the stand and ask you all to believe him beyond reasonable doubt,” Baez told a jury of nine women and six men.

Hernandez, 27, faces murder charges in the deaths of Daniel Jorge Correia de Abreu, 29 and Safiro Teixeira Furtado, 28 in July 2012. The former New England Patriots tight end faces several other separate charges, including the unlawful possession of a firearm outside the home and intimidation of a witness. That witness was Alexander Bradley, and the “intimidation” was a bullet to the face.
