Well, George Zimmerman is back in the news, today, and I feel a George Zimmerman prediction comin’ on.
Today, Zimmerman’s estranged wife called 911, saying she and her father were being threatened by Zimmerman who “continually has his hand on his gun, and [is] saying, ‘Step closer.'” Police detained Zimmerman, but released him when his wife declined to press charges.
Now, I have no idea whether or not George Zimmerman was seriously threatening anyone today. But here’s the thing. If I had recently shot an unarmed teenager dead in my neighborhood, and less than two months earlier been acquitted of all charges for that killing in an OJ-style circus trial, I’m pretty sure I’d want to avoid calling further attention to myself for a while. I’m quite sure I would not get pulled over in two different states for speeding. Nor would I stage a heroic rescue of victims of an automobile accident. And I surely would not show up at the home of my estranged wife’s parents (or anywhere else, for that matter), carrying a gun.
But that’s me. George Zimmerman appears to be different.
I’m going to go out on a limb here and make a George Zimmerman prediction. And not your typical “psychic”, many-things-might-loosely-qualify-as-a-hit sort of prediction. I’m talking about a specific, verifiable time-limited prediction: Within the next five years, George Zimmerman will be arrested (or otherwise detained by authorities) again for actions that involve a firearm.
Call it a hunch. Call it a “blink” assessment. I just think his self-induced, gun-related woes are not yet completely behind him.
