Analysis of media issues, politics and current events.
1. Against advice of police, not to get out his car and follow Trayvon Martin, he did.
2. He tried to fool his judge by claiming he didn’t have money to pay a large bail. But on the down-low, he was talking in code with his wife how to hide and move over 150K he collected from donations.
3.He went and did an interview with Sean Hannity against the advice of his lawyers. Putting his interview and statements made up for evidence in his trial. Tried to bribe (or perhaps heavily convince) Barbara Walters into putting him up in a hotel for a month for an interview that wasn’t exclusive and against “checkbook” journalism rules.
Even if he’s innocent. I’m seeing what will likely be the fall of George Zimmerman. The series of bonehead moves, where he constantly seems to not take the advice of experienced experts and goes freelance with his own plan, or tries to hoodwink others seem to indicate his biggest flaw: arrogance (until he get’s called on it). This seem to be the same arrogance that, if true, helped create the events that led to Trayvon Martin’s shooting in the first place.
George Zimmerman problem seems to be that he thinks he’s a little more clever than those around him. But as his plans seem to have flaws that come out during execution, perhaps, humility for a while might serve him better.
