Today, Aaron Hernandez of the New England Patriots has been charged with murder. He is Puerto Rican like me. Last month, Ariel Castro was arrested after having held three women against their will for ten years. He is Puerto Rican like me. What the hell is going on with my people? This is a tough time to be Puerto Rican. Please know that there are more than 7 million of us who are law-abiding and very proud to be Americans. Most of us care very deeply about representing our culture honorably and with the highest regard for human life. NEWYORICANGIRL
