Former New England Patriots Tight End Aaron Hernandez was arrested last month and charged with the first-degree murder of his friend Odin Lloyd. He is being held inside Massachusetts’ Bristol County House of Correction without bail in a seven foot by ten foot cell, he’s six foot one, alone for twenty one hours a day with nobody to talk to, no television, no air conditioning, no coffee, no gym. Hernandez is permitted to walk thirty yards in his cellblock during the three hours each day he is taken out of solitary confinement. For three hours a day he is allowed to make collect calls, take a shower and stretch his legs. The only people he gets to talk to are on the phone when he makes his collect calls. He has zero interaction with any of the other prisoners. This is not solitary confinement, but it’s damn close. Our guest is Travis Waldron who covers sports for Think Progress. Travis raises the disturbing question If this is how America treats a celebrity like Aaron Hernandez, how do we treat the other Hernandezes behind bars who aren’t famous? Solitary confinement, it’s torture, and we discuss it with Sports Columnist Travis Waldron from Think Progress.

Today’s show features Paul Dooley, Janie Haddad Tomkins, Laura Kightlinger. Eddie Pepitone, Hal Lublin, and Frank Conniff. We are written by Dylan Brody, Hal Lublin, Will Dixon, and Steve Rosenfield and David Feldman.
