I sure wish that George Zimmerman would stop getting in trouble

November 18, 2013

Hi Reader.

As you know, over the past year or so I have had the distinct displeasure of posting a few times about Frank Taaffe, caped crusader for George Zimmerman. And this is precisely why I wish beyond any measure that George Zimmerman would stop getting himself into trouble. Because every single time Zimmerman is in the news, Taaffe quickly follows like the tragedy leech that he is.

Today, for example, Taaffe appeared on CNN to air his grievances regarding Zimmerman’s latest arrest for pointing a gun at his girlfriend. This is felony aggravated assault, according to the law. According to Frank Taaffe, “it happens”. Yes, domestic violence “happens”, Taaffe, as you may indeed be aware.

Taaffe blathered on and on to host Sunny Hostin about how Zimmerman is being oppressed by the media, and then came the gem. The moment for which we were all waiting. Hostin, in a tone that I took to be sarcastic, asked Taaffe if Zimmerman is the real victim in this current arrest. You know, the arrest for felony aggravated assault by Zimmerman. On his girlfriend. With a gun. Taaffe’s answer? Yes. Yes, Zimmerman is the victim here. What followed was the curse of broadcasting: complete silence. He’s really outdone himself this time.

Like Hostin, I am speechless, and that is why I must write. If you’d like to read more about Taaffe, and the reasons why he gets my goat every time, Mariah Blake wrote an excellent piece that you can find here.

    Your blog has a weird issue making it hard to read in Safari or Chrome on Mac OS X – it’s fine in Firefox, but in Safari or Chrome it’s chopping off the rightmost word or so from the main column, so it reads thus:

    As you can see this doesn’t actually make any less sense than Zimmerman makes when I can read all the words – it’s crazy either way – but when you write about science it matters more :)
