We gotta hurry up. We’re running out of days.
Anthony Weiner vs. George Zimmerman
Another odd pairing, I admit, but I am not going to sit and judge them based on their initial crimes. If that were the case, Zimmerman would have been winner, hands down. Not to mention, the shooting of Trayvon Martin did not occur in 2013, so we can’t look to that as a deciding factor. No, this heat all about second chances gone wrong.
For Zimmerman, it started before 2013 with him and just continued. There were traffic stops for moving violations in which he negligently had firearms out while officers spoke to him. Then, there were several incidences where police were called because of domestic disputes and George was placed under arrest, only to be released later on with no charges filed. So, either the guy is a danger to himself and others and has frequent access to firearms, or he’s a victim of a “Cry Wolf” scenario by his girlfriend. Honestly, I really don’t know where the fault lies because for every incident, it’s gets walked back. The problem is, George keeps getting into the media.
Then you Carlos Danger aka Anthony Weiner. He got in loads of trouble for texting his unit to women in 2011, while he was in Congress, and in 2013, he just couldn’t keep it in his pants. And he did this while running for Mayor of New York. More texting scandals came out and then it became a politically charged issue because his wife’s boss is Hillary Clinton. Once again, Anthony Weiner had a chance to slink away and fight another day, but he just couldn’t do that. So, is he a victim of his desire or some politically charged plot to undermine campaigns?
The verdict? Geogre Zimmerman
OK, it was slanted. Zimmerman had way more against him going in, but like I said, this was about second chances. But while Carlos Danger simply couldn't keep himself from being textually active, Zimmerman continues to put himself in awkward positions. Depending on what you think about his acquittal, he got away with it, like O.J. Simpson. Lay low, try and improve yourself and stay away from the spotlight. But he couldn't. So, he's the bigger douche bag. Regardless of who is at fault, him or his girlfriend, he does not get to be innocent in the eyes of the public. We get our due in another round. It's a two way street that you just have to rise above and he didn't do it.
