So the University of Florida has determined that a brick in the school’s football complex marking Aaron Henandez’s 2009 All-American season has to be removed. Why? Because Aaron Hernandez has been charged with murder, as we all know. Now I’m with everyone else is thinking that murder is a big deal and that is looks like Hernandez is guilty. Granted, he hasn’t been tried yet, but if we fast forward to what seems to be the likely outcome he’ll probably go to jail forever and take up other physical pursuits. That’s justice and we can all move on with our lives. So what is the deal with every entity that Hernandez has ever come into contact with needing to give themselves cold showers and publicly self flagellate over what he did? The NFL stops selling his jersey. Ok, fine. The Patriots wipe him from their marketing materials. Sure. Florida digs up a brick in their stadium? What? Why is it important to act like the guy never existed? Why does societies hivemind think that pretending there never was an Aaron Hernandez is the most appropriate reaction to this situation? I’m not against symbolic acts of destruction when there is a society-wide catharsis that comes from them. But digging up a commemorative brick in the football complex of the university where a man who, years, later would be charged with murder played football in college? That’s just Orwellian PR.
