"Why is so much of this stuff always Florida??"

Some places seem to be a magnet for crazies.
Must be. For a while I used to think maybe all the Trailer Parks but that did not make sense. Other states have all kinds of those too so why this state all the damn time? Some talk shows even have segments along the lines of Florida....... making fun of this. When you read this particular story it is all about late night drinking. Still the comments from the Sheriff are funny as all hell.

Saw it this morning... I just LOVE a happy ending!!

Florida... IDK I thought maybe it was the wild and "independent" southern Florida, but it's central Florida. Polk county maybe is "special"???

Much of the publicity is due to Sheriff Grady Judd, he loves the microphone and gives lengthy reports on who what where when. My fav sheriff Grady quote... "Leave people alone! People have guns. They will shoot you dead. Graveyard dead."

I saw an article a while back that suggested it was because there was some law that mandates all arrests are made public. I guess there is a website or something where all the arrest reports pop up.

Florida is full of former New Yorkers.

Anyone want to bet against the correlation?
Just in the southern section close to the coasts and in Orlando. You've got to get up into the panhandle for the serious trailer park shenanigans. Take Pensacola and Tallahassee out of the mix and Florida would be just another state. Oh, and Naples. I don't know what they put in the water in Naples.

I have noticed that about him. There has been other times when he would not mince words over some fool getting shot. Saying something along the lines of leave others alone and you will live longer. Guy sounds like a very no nonsense kind of law man.

Florida attracts seniors looking for a comfortable retirement, tourists and vacationers looking for fun and ne’er do wells looking for whatever they can get their hands on. It’s also a biker haven and the winter destination of east coast hobos.

I didn’t bother mentioning that I went through police training in Florida. The warm winters provide a haven for the fringe, giving the state transitory and temporary headaches. Drug trafficking and the money it produces are a permanent headache.
