Read The Questions Given To Potential Aaron Hernandez Jurors

Over three days, 1,055 people — minus the guy in a Bruins jersey who screamed "Go Pats!" and was sent home — filed through Bristol Superior Court for jury selection in Aaron Hernandez's upcoming murder trial. They were each given a 51-question juror questionnaire which you can read below (and complete, if you like).

The questionnaire was obtained by Fox Sports, and is intended to help prosecutors and the defense to whittle down the pool to 18, a process that's expected to take another week. It is full of questions meant to reveal potential biases, both subtle and not-so-subtle:


There are also questions meant to plumb potential jurors' feelings on race (including one asking how they'd feel about Hernandez, a Hispanic man, dating an African-American woman), guns, and even tattoos.

Here's the full juror questionnaire:
