This should go without saying, I think, but Aaron Hernandez is not allowed to watch football in jail.
"While Mr. Hernandez and many other inmates would like to watch football, it is just not part of our policy here," Hodgson said. "So that will not be happening."
Is this either normal or abnormal? I'm not particularly familiar with the happenings in prison so I don't have a clue what prisoners can and cannot do.
My assumption is that if you're in prison you either a) did something really wrong or b) allegedly did something really wrong. Given that assumption it seems a bit silly to give out free Internet and Sunday Ticket and other amenities that many non-imprisoned people wish they had.
Not that I don't want CBS ratings to climb and dot com clicks to go through the roof. I do. But if you're going to incarcerate a bunch of people don't make it any more fun, you know? Force them all to watch "Dr. Phil" or something.
