A crowd gathered outside of Fall River District Courthouse cheered “Innocent!” as Aaron Hernandez left his bail appeal hearing on Thursday afternoon.

I know this country’s legal system stands on the foundation of “innocent until proven guilty”, but it’s pretty insane to think that despite all the evidence mounted against Hernandez as the murder orchestrator (and the fact that he isn’t even a member of the Patriots anymore) that these people would still show up to defend him.
