Well, that didn’t take long at all. Just over two months ago, I offered my George Zimmerman Prediction:
Within the next five years, George Zimmerman will be arrested (or otherwise detained by authorities) again for actions that involve a firearm.
Guess what? My George Zimmerman prediction came true with almost 4 years and 10 months to spare!
According to yesterday’s Orlando Sentinel,
George Zimmerman was arrested Monday after he cocked and pointed a shotgun at his girlfriend, shattered a glass-top table, then pushed her out of the house and barricaded himself inside after she ordered him to move out, according to the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office.
You don’t have to be a psychiatrist or a psychic to understand that George Zimmerman is likely to be involved in further troubles. It’s not merely coincidence that he’s again in the news. He’s not a victim of circumstance. There is something fundamental about his nature that seems to lead to trouble. This guy is (almost literally) a loose canon. Something will (almost surely) happen again.
So, I’m going to update my five year George Zimmerman prediction. Again, I’ll make a specific, verifiable time-limited prediction: Within the next five years, George Zimmerman will be involved in another firearm-related death—his own or somebody else’s.
I hope this prediction turns out to be untrue. But I would not bet against it.
