Florida is suck a lovely state right, right, right?

Florida will be by far the most hated state. Something is going to tell me that Disney is going to look at this and might hurt their sales because families will think it's not safe to go.

Nobody is going to think that. This is America there is no place that is safe.

Theses shootings across America don’t even surprise me anymore. Very sad.

Not across America, just Florida mostly.
Come on, man. The guy isn't even from Florida. Besides, Jacksonville is practically Georgia with a beach (OK, half-joking). Please stop with the Florida bashing. Having lived in Tampa for many years, it still kind of bugs me when people do this. It isn't all bad, and there are some really beautiful things about that state. I really don't think this applies, when the shooter is from Baltimore.

I have lived in Colorado for many years now, and on the whole, people are so much nicer than most places I have ever been, and I've been to and lived on some wonderful places. However, both the Columbine high school shooting and the Aurora movie theater mass shootings happened in this state. Those are two of the highest profile mass shootings in the country.

Also, and this is VERY IMPORTANT, there is something called the Sunshine Act. I didn't want to mention this in the Florida Man thread because I didn't want to ruin the fun. Now that actual verbal stones are being thrown, you should probably know that because of this law, there is a openness for Florida to allow reporters access to just about all crimes, where most states did not have this openness. I'm not saying that weird sh!t doesn't happen there, but it's always news because nothing is kept from the press, like happens in most states. This is actually a good thing, but creates a tabloid-like atmosphere, with so many people living there. https://www.miaminewtimes.com/news/...the-shame-of-florida-man-news-stories-7608595

In my other thread about maybe moving South, I've considered Florida and still consider that as a possibility. I mean c'mon I'm from Michigan, what does Florida have on Detroit? Or Flint?

Maybe the only place I'm uncertain about is Miami, but I don't want to go that far anyway because the humidity is insane.

Of course like Las Vegas. The shooting really heavy in Florida.

Night club, school, and madden.
That's just 3? You think that is not enough?
Right, and you're blaming the place things happened, even though this guy is not even from there, but Baltimore, which has been stated since the beginning... Even the Orlando shooting, the guy was foreign, right? Florida is very densely populated. That sadly makes it a target for people that hate people. You do realize that there are many happy families and good people living in Florida, right? I do know quite a few, myself. Get off your high horse, man.

I still don’t get why you’re singling out Florida. This is a nation wide problem.

oh, don't worry about that I live in Philly and we get them as well. Now that video of those guys in St. Louis was pretty crazy.

To be honest I think Philly has calm down a lot but at one point we were rated pretty high and also the number of police deaths as well.

I live in a city of about 60k and there are plenty of shootings here as well, although a lot of people from Chicago end up here so...

Interview with David Katz from last year...


He's being interviewed by Steve Tasker, who I saw in a supermarket about 5 years ago. Had to be 5'9" and 160 lbs. One of the best special teamers to ever play the game.

I know I sound like a broken record on this, but I’d bet (again) the guy was on or recently coming off psych meds:

And the police were called to his house on multiple occasions apparantly.

The guy looks like the stereotypical person you would cast in a made for TV movie about a mass shooter.

He's not Muslim or Mexican, though, so it'll never be newsworthy enough to find out. :(

Maryland has a red flag law that takes effect October 1. This will finally allow family to contact the police to take weapons from individuals until the courts can evaluate them. Every state should have these laws. Could have helped if we had it sooner.
