Who says Floridians aren’t creative?

Fort Pierce got some attention from the FBI on Thursday, Sept. 28 when they assisted St. Lucie County Sheriff’s officers with an arrest.
Charles Baker merited the visit by sending an online note to the FBI claiming to be a “very good bomb maker.” They were not impressed with his self-proclaimed skills. Perhaps if he wrote it like a resumé they would have offered him a job, but he spoiled his chances already…
He also threatened to kill any “fake feds” that come to his home.
In the note he mentioned that he’s needed the FBI for five years, and included a Department of Corrections inmate number. Full Story »
Let’s meet Garrett and Flavia Higgs, a Port St. Lucie couple in their early 40’s.
Like most Florida couples, they have issues.
For over a year, they’ve been sleeping in separate beds and have been denying each other the sweet release of orgasm. The avoidance of intimacy influences human emotions with great intensity. Unless you’ve replaced your sexual desires with something more profound and valuable, such as when people become celibate to live a monastic life, then you will suffer.
Garrett was suffering.
So, when he came home late Wednesday night and heard the intense moans of his estranged wife coming from her bedroom, he reacted.
He banged on the door and did not get a response. This disturbed him, as images of another man on top of his wife plagued his worried mind. Full Story »

PORT ST. LUCIE – A Port St. Lucie parent was arrested Sunday after he pointed a loaded gun at a Grace Christian Academy self-defense instructor and told him “martial arts are crap”, city police said.
“Bang, you’re dead. No way you could have got me before I pulled it out,” George Meyer, 61, reportedly said.
Meyer, whose child is a student at the school, was attending an open house when he overheard the defense instructor telling someone that a gun is not always the best choice for self-defense since it can be easily taken away, said Sgt. Frank Sabol, Port St. Lucie police spokesman. Full Story »
Dear Floridians (and everybody else),
Florida’s a fucked up place. From animal abusers to angry ex-cops to Zimmerman to horse fuckers, we have plenty of issues. WTF Florida is your source for these fucked up news articles, and we encourage hysterical laughter at the zany headlines coming out of the Gunshine State.
After the laughter comes tears. The victims of Florida’s insanity aren’t laughing (unless they’re truly demented, which happens sometimes). We have a responsibility to improve Florida as much as we can.
WTF Florida would like to state a new mission:
We are dedicated to becoming a Karma Neutral State.
We want Florida’s karmatic number to be perfectly balanced at zero. Laughing at other people’s misery brings negative karma. Doing fucked up shit brings negative karma. Helping people who have been fucked over by Florida’s insanity brings you positive karma. We are still going to make fun of everybody who shows up on this site, but we are also going to start getting more serious about fixing stupid shit.
From this point on, we will occasionally start petitions to bring about justice, and to fix things that are unfair or that defy morals. We encourage our readers to help, not only by signing and sharing these petitions, but to also create them yourselves and to contact your representatives when appropriate. Please contact us if you have an issue that is important to you.
Send us info about your non-profit group or activism group, and we will try to get you more views (if you don’t mind being associated with us). Use the Contact page and let us know what you’re about.
All big problems start small. You can make a difference today by doing little things. Give a homeless person a bottle of water. Ask a local school what supplies they need and gift them with what you can afford. Use your fucking turn signals. The list goes on.
Help us help our state.
Let’s work together for the greater good.
Let’s make Florida slightly less fucked up.

Only the “Right Of Adults To Cannabis” amendment can secure your RIGHT to possess, cultivate, and use cannabis in a manner similar to your 2nd amendment right to “keep and bear arms” … think about that for a minute.
Whether you agree or disagree with Americans right to gun ownership, the strength of this protected right is clear and viewed my many as absolute. Floridians For Freedom believes adults right to whole plant cannabis should be comparable and hopes you agree. Full Story »

PORT ST. LUCIE — When stopped by Port St. Lucie police, Shane Forsythe started doing the “chicken dance.”
But rather than celebrating the law enforcement encounter, police say Forsythe’s fowl jig served a foul purpose – functioning as a diversion for the passenger in his sport utility vehicle to run away, according to an arrest affidavit.
Police stopped Forsythe’s Ford Explorer on May 11 after noticing it had a missing headlight, “extremely” cracked windshield and two bald tires.
Police reported the vehicle was traveling erratically and that it appeared the passenger and driver were wrestling over the wheel.
When the Ford pulled in a driveway on Southeast Walsh Terrace, the driver – Forsythe – got out.

A Florida woman is accused of paying a 15-year-old boy multiple times for sex.
Police in Port St. Lucie arrested Rebecca McGraw, 38, last week. She was charged with five counts of sexual activity with a minor, according to records. Police said the woman admitted to the acts.
The boy’s mom told police about the alleged sex abuse when she found a text message on his phone, according to news reports.

Richard Lloyd told deputies he wanted to “run the Arabs out of our country” so he pushed a dumpster in front of the Port St. Lucie store and set the contents on fire, Mascara said in a news release posted on Facebook.
Lloyd told detectives he assumed the owner was Muslim and that angered him because of “what they are doing in the Middle East,” Mascara said.
“It’s unfortunate that Mr. Lloyd made the assumption that the store owners were Arabic when, in fact, they are of Indian descent,” Mascara said. Full Story »
The teacher found the child chewing on a used condom at a playground at St. Lucie Elementary.
The child’s parents went to the ER to get tests done for sexually transmitted diseases.
“One of my grandchildren is in the first grade and he is on that same playground,” said Teresa Walker, a grandmother of four. “I was in shock.”
According to reports, school security told police it’s not the first time they’ve had to remove similar items from school grounds.
PORT ST. LUCIE — A man exposed himself at a local business before bicycling away naked.
That’s what a woman told Port St. Lucie police happened Jan. 23 at a home health care business in the 100 block of Southwest Port St. Lucie Boulevard, a police report states.
The woman said a man in his late teens or early 20s exposed himself from the waist down to several students there.
The accused nether regions exposer “defecated in the back of the school near their air-conditioning unit then took off running towards the front of the school while naked,” the report states.
Apparently her boyfriend had been lying about how much money he was making, so this woman, Trisha Brower, shows up at the hamburger joint he works at and confronts him about the $145 difference. You see, rent was due and this live-in boyfriend of hers was holding out.
After a little argument she starts walking out and decides in all of her Florida glory to throw chicken wings at him. Because that’s how adults in Florida resolve conflict.
“When she threw the container with the chicken wings, the blue cheese dressing and wing sauce splattered all over her and partially on him,” a report states.
She also tried punching him and spitting on him, but our burger-making hero was swift and avoided the blows.
And so the story ends with this 35-year-old Port St. Lucie woman going to jail covered in chicken wing sauce and fromage bleu…
