SOLITARY CONFINEMENT

For His Own Safety

Aaron Hernandez
has been moved into solitary confinement ... away from the general population ... because officials believe he could be a prize for blood-thirsty, fame-hungry inmates, TMZ has learned.

TMZ spoke with Bristol County Sheriff Tom Hodgson who tells us ... Aaron has been moved from the medical ward at Bristol County Jail to a "Class 2 Unit" -- where he is isolated from the general population.

Hodgson explains, "The reason for this move is simply to protect him. We wouldn't want some inmate trying to get any notoriety by attempting to harm Aaron Hernandez."

In his Class 2 unit, Hernandez is allowed 3 hours outside of his cell per day.  Hodgson says, "He can have access to the phone, yard for fresh air, and the common room."

Hodgson says there are no TVs inside the common room or inside Aaron's cell.

We're told Aaron will stay in this unit for at least a week -- and then officials reevaluate the situation and decide if they want to move him to a different unit.

As for visitors, officials tell us Aaron can choose five people to put on a visitor list.

Hodgson adds, "Having just met with him earlier again after his evaluation, and for a man who has gone from 7,000-square-feet to a 10x7 cell, he is doing very well and seems to be taking the situation great. He is very respectful and calm. Also to this point he has had no special requests."

They sound like they are praising him for being so calm. He's probably so calm because the guy just doesn't seem to grasp how extremely serious this is. And how permanent it is. Bubba's waiting for him.

Why does Aaron Hernandez get the privilege of "safety"? Do all the inmates get the privilege of safety? Does some 18 year +1 day old kind of wimpy kid get safety or is he just thrown in with the other inmates?
.
He may be an accused murderer, but he is still far from average.

Bristol County Sheriff Tom Hodgson, "I don't see no problem with that boy. Just gave him a private cell, won't have to mingle, has his own cable TV. Seem, like a good guy to me. Maybe, he killed that colored boy. But he probably deserved it."

He's going to be a victim eventually. He is probably living in fear of being sodomized. But it's going to happened eventually.

at this point, all one can believe that is running through aaron's mind are thoughts of being anally raped. dude has moved passed the murder parts, and now is onto what is going to happen to him. odin and all the rest of his victims are long gone from his mind; his only thoughts now are of whats in it for him, ultimate;ly? and its prison, and joining the sodomizNATION.
