Aaron Hernandez

Even Accused Murderers Deserve Turkey

11/28/2013 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Aaron Hernandez -- the ex-New England Patriots star who is behind bars as he awaits trial for murder -- will be celebrating Thanksgiving with SOME of the trimmings ... TMZ has learned.

Here's what we're told Aaron will be eating:

     -- 5 ounces of turkey
     -- mashed potatoes
     -- mixed veggies
     --  fruit punch

We're told the reason the inmates get turkey dinner is to remind them there's still a lot to be thankful for.

And the pièce de résistance ... for desert he gets one slice of pumpkin bread.

And you know what he has to do to get 2 slices ....

One last thing ... He's not allowed to watch football.  NO TV.

What they're not telling you is in some jails, almost all the meat is turkey. Tenderloin? Turkey. Chicken sammich? Turkey. Country fried steak? Turkey. Turkey sammich? ...Well, it's supposed to be turkey. But you get my point. The only change is how it's prepared.

I wonder what I get for "desert." Since the closest desert is Palm Springs, I'll go with that.

OK jail food is not made with the same good ingredients or loving care that your mom or a fine restaurant would put into it. When they say fruit punch, it is watered down Kool Aid with no sugar. It tastes horrible. Jail food is no good and the worst part is that they try to force some people to eat it.

They don't give you anything whole grain, so if you get constipated, that is tough for you. People won't eat the produce cause it is not washed beforehand. If they gave you decent bread and water it is better than what they feed you usually.
