It's Official.

George Zimmerman is a pinhead.

Yes, I know. The media has gotten, well, pretty much everything wrong with regards to Zimmerman ever since, well, he got out of his truck that fateful night in Sanford, Florida. It is entirely possible that they've gotten everything about this story wrong, too. Except one: he gave the media a reason to write about him again. They're watching him, waiting for him to screw up again, and he appears eager to not disappoint them.

He got involved with someone new, okay, that happens. Now, with the entire American media out looking for any reason, no matter how flimsy, to hang him out to dry - and seeing how eagerly they've reported his traffic tickets, his speeding escapades, and the alleged abuse of his ex-wife, you'd think he'd be a little more circumspect about his behavior.

I still think that he was justified in shooting Trayvon, don't get me wrong - the recent spate of "Knockout" goes to show that allegedly "unarmed" "children" can and have beaten people to death (often for no reason other than "it's a game"). It's just that with each successive episode, the trailer park soap opera gets yet another airing, and it's only a matter of time before Zimmerman's poor choices land him in jail.

And I suspect Zimmerman's lifespan in a detention facility will be measured with a stopwatch.

That is all.

He REALLY needs to swear off crazy women for a while.

I would not find it at all surprising to learn that his current girlfriend, who just made allegations against him, is working for the media and was paid to become his girlfriend and then cause a stir.

putting the paranoia aside for a second, it is kinda hard to keep your shit together when everyone and his ####-ing cousin are going through it with a fine tooth comb.

I mean, we've reached the point where media discussion about what color Zimmerman's most recent fart might be are no longer front page news. But even so, it's gotta be hard to keep cool under that kind of Constant. Grinding. Pressure.

And this does kinda look like another case of "oh, the Boyfriend isn't kissing my ass sufficiently, therefore, I shall invoke the police, and demand appropriate Drama!"

Folks, I REALLY don't want to make assumptions about this until we get more data.

The one thing that jumped out at me, from the news story Jay links to, is that the facts don't add up -- her version OR his. And we know for sure that the press are out to get him. So, for now, I don't have a clue what happened.

I just know that I'm really glad I'm not GZ. And it saddens me to see how his life has fallen apart. I hope he can pull things together.

On a happy note for Mrs. Zimmerman, George's being in jail meant that she was finally able to serve process for their divorce. She had been looking for him for six weeks.
