Back in July, I predicted here that George Zimmerman would serve time eventually for another violent act. My prediction:
Zimmerman right now is telling himself he better clean up his act, because next time he may not be so likely. His father, his older brother and his wife likely are telling him the same thing. But deep down inside, Zimmerman knows he just got away with murder. And in his mind of minds, he thinks he can get it away with it again.
Remember, this was not Zimmerman's first brush with the law, or even his second. Zimmerman has a criminal bent. Short term, his trial will cause him to be more careful. Long term, it will cause him to be more brazen. One day, the animal in Zimmerman will act out again. It may not be another murder, but it will involve violence.
It may take awhile, but one day Zimmerman will spend time behind bars.
I actually was quite confident of the prediction, but thought it could take a few years to be proven correct.
George Zimmerman was charged Monday with assault after deputies were called to the home where he lived with his girlfriend, who claimed he pointed a shotgun at her during an argument, authorities said.
Zimmerman pushed the woman out of the house and barricaded the door with furniture, Chief Deputy Dennis Lemma said at a news conference hours after the arrest. The girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, provided deputies with a key to the home and they were able to push the door that had been barricaded.
He may walk on this one as well, but sooner or later he won't. Pretty clear that justice was not done in the Trayvon Martin case, huh?
