The fact is that George Zimmerman, despite not being sent to prison, is still going to live a miserable life for the foreseeable future. He’s virtually unemployable, has no money, will have to fear for his safety at all times in public, and as a result of all these factors, he’ll more than likely have to leave the state of Florida.
