'Do not to cry' judge tells mom of Aaron Hernandez's alleged victim

The judge overseeing the murder trial of ex-NFL star Aaron Hernandez warned the slain man's mother not to cry while testifying in the case on Wednesday.

Ursula Ward is the mother of Odin Lloyd, who was found dead near Hernandez's home in June 2013.

Shortly before she testified, Ward took the stand to identify her son from an autopsy photo of his face, her voice wavering slightly.

After that, Superior Court Judge Susan Garsh told Ward that she must retain control of her emotions and not cry when she is shown photos of her son.

That in and of itself, is very cruel and heartless.

But it will be all right for Hernandez to ball his little eyes out at sentencing when he's apologizing to the family; double standard--your justice system at work!!
