  •  I'm afraid I do get the vibe from him ... (11+ / 0-)

    ... that he is the type who might well crash and reach the serial abuser's "nothing to lose" point ... where he might take out a few other people and then -- in the typical coward's way out -- himself.

    That way he gets the final say, and gets to "win" over the people who have supposedly treated him so badly.

    •  He is a coward (12+ / 0-)

      and he believes he can lie and manipulate himself out of any situation. If he gets killed, it will be because he picked the wrong person to bully around. If he is not put in jail, I am sure he will kill again.

    •  That's the buzz I get as well. (5+ / 0-)

      He'll do unto others and then do himself.

      And the media will go into "nobody could have predicted" mode and move on.

    •  He has very limited personal resources, it seems.. (7+ / 0-)

      Obviously no character, no athletic prowess or agility, not particularly bright and totally lacking in personal insight. He isn't likable, was probably bullied. That combintion tends to make people, men, especially, insecure and very reflexively aggressive. In dogs we would call him a 'fear-biter'.

      He has no future, at some level he recognises that. He wasn't managing his life well before, he's never going to be able to manage it now, with all the attention that he will garner for the rest of it.

      I seriously doubt it will take much longer for him to implode. He just isn't competent enough to survive on his own.

        That's really interesting.  It definitely seems to fit.

        and "fear-biter" was a label we did everything possible to avoid giving a dog, because it was almost a guarantee they'd be unadoptable.  GZ is unadoptable.  And "fear biter" is a perfect description.

        I'll believe corporations are people when one comes home from Afghanistan in a body bag.

          Not really. There are always going to be women who are drawn to this type of man, for one of many reasons:

          I can fix this man

          I can 'change' this man

          It was all 'her' fault; she didn't truly love him and I DO

          He's different with me

          Everyone treats him real bad

          It was his mother's fault

          It was his father's fault

          If I just do "x" he's a great guy

          Our love will conquer all our problems

          He hit me because it's my fault; when I'm good, he's nice, or he'll never EVER do it again; pinkie promise

          He's in good with the cops, so I'm home free with my little personal, um, peccadilloes, shall we say

          And so many more....
          Z is a manipulative coward and a punk who draws strength and phony courage from having guns and women around him, not for what he can do for them, or to enjoy sharing his life with someone else, but for what they can do for him, namely to reflect his delusions of grandeur back to himself, like badly distorted funhouse mirrors.

          When people around him fall short in what he considers this, their duty, his defenses kick in, and he reaches for the nearest weapon, since there's always one there. Could be hands but I think he's learned to use them only when it is a woman requiring correction, since the odds of winning are better when the opponent is smaller. Plus he's just not very good with his hands. Hmm.

          Anyway, it seems he prefers guns. He isn't supposed to have them right now, but I'm as sure as the sun rises every day that either he's sneaking one or two around with him, or he'll maneuver a way to get them back, since part of being manipulative is knowing who is the most useful to manipulate.

          I know this type. I was married to a man just like him, and just seeing Z on TV gives me major creep-flashbacks, even after having divorced the jerk over 30 years ago. A jerk who, after I left his abusive ass, remarried a drug addict with six kids, pled guilty to three counts of child molestation of his stepdaughters, served four years in state prison, and STILL got two more women (one of whom he met while in prison) to marry him, support his ass, and take care of him until he croaked last year.

          It's partly why I so loathe the tea-baggers, the right-wingers who have piled on to the crazed pro-gun, pro-christian, anti-contraception, generally anti-woman, near Sharia-law bandwagon rolling back America's clock to the 19th century. (Because the 19th was a good century for Western men and not so good for the women, or workers, or social systems in general if one looks back on it.)

           Zimmerman's their hero, and always will be, since they see absolutely nothing wrong with what he did. Nor with what he will do in the future. Because he "thinks" just like they do; they get it and wish they could get away with doing the same thing; whether it's threatening 'your woman' with a gun, the same woman whose home you've commandeered and who you previously choked, (but who's going to believe what SHE says to the 9-1-1 operator, right? since she's all pregnant and hysterical, except for the FACT that she's NOT) or murder a black kid who's walking home from the store, because he's there and you're tired of seeing 'those people' getting away with this shit.

          Z stalked Trayvon, maybe accosted him, maybe not, we'll never really know the truth, but we do know there was a struggle, and it seems that the person who instigated the fight, Mr. Z, was not winning. UNACCEPTABLE! Trayvon had apparently not gotten the memo that Z always wins, so against all odds, and evidence, Z had to fix the mirror that was Trayvon, and make the reflection right. And a teenager became a 'thug' and so had to die, a real thug became a victim, and a murderer walks free, with apologies and his guns back.

          Poor George. But not to worry. Someone will always come along and comfort you again. And again. Because they OWE YOU!
