The Special Snowflake (Also referred to as one with the "Special Snowflake Syndrome" or "SSS") is a person who believes they are different and unique from everyone else because of something they are or do. Special Snowflakes almost always have a superiority complex.
Pensacola is full of Special Snowflakes. People who have always gotten their way due to:
- who their parents are,
- who their parents know,
- where they work,
- who they know or grew up with,
- who their friends are now or
- who they married
When things are good for the Special Snowflakes, everything goes well in Pensacola. They obtain great educations and lucrative jobs. They belong to the right clubs or social organizations. They are generous with their time and/or money.
But when Special Snowflakes cross the line they don't face the same consequences that most Citizens would face. They need the bad times to go away!
We have seen it before! Remember that in college our very own Strong Mayor / King allegedly committed three felonies in attempting to obtain a fake drivers license.
- Drivers License Fraud
- Obstruction by Disguise
Over this week I will detail the trials and tribulations of another Prince of Pensacola, the son of a developer, a successful attorney and brother-in-law to the Mayor.
This successful attorney allegedly did not believe the laws and rules that apply to the everyday citizen apply to him.
The sad thing is....he is right. They don't apply to him. He truly is another "Special Snowflake".
It is the story of a man allegedly behaving badly...very badly. To a police officer. To a woman.
It is the story of that man's apparent impatience, allegedly leading to his breaking the law.
It is a story of local law enforcement, not knowing who the Special Snowflake was, attempting to hold a anonymous alleged violator accountable for his actions.
It is the story of the prominent attorney being afforded the most gracious arrest for his alleged transgressions and yet treating the event with disdain, disbelief and ridicule.
It is the story of how the entire series of events is swept away by the "powers that be" and a really good attorney.
And finally, you will see in the Special Snowflakes own words, unaltered and printed verbatim, what he says happened.
You can then draw your own conclusions as to what happened.
Do these types of events happen often? You have no idea. No it doesn't happen for everyone.
Just the Special Snowflakes.
