If every Sheriff thought like him, Florida would be a much safer and more peaceful place. Amazing Florida Man headlines would decrease, but it’d be worth it. Cop hate would decrease, because there would be more accountability and trust. Crime would decrease because we could focus on important stuff and not waste effort. Plus we could call scumbags “scumbags” and lying politicians “lying sacks of shit” without worrying about being politically correct, as long as that rough language is being used to break down negativity and inequality.

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 »
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – A 10-year-old Florida boy cut off his ankle monitor the day after being charged with stealing a car and stole another one.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) – Volusia County Sheriff’s Office reports that a woman was arrested for child neglect after waiting 2 hours to call the police when her 15-year-old daughter wouldn’t stop throwing up. Full Story »
A Daytona Beach stepfather has been arrested as part of a child-abuse investigation where a severely neglected 5-year-old was discovered weighing under 25 pounds.
Brian Hall, 29, is married to the child’s mother, Naomi Hall, who is accused of allowing this abuse to take place. She was arrested last week and posted bond, according to theroot.com.
Department of Children and Families investigators were visiting their Daytona Beach home on June 28, when they discovered the 5-year-old on the living room floor. The young victim was extremely thin, and seemed to be dehydrated.
He was found trying to eat cereal scraps from the carpet. The report also shows that the child’s hands and feet were orange, and that he had blisters all over his body.
The mother, Naomi Hall, told investigators that she would often neglect to feed him for 3 or 4 days at a time. She also failed to provide his medication. The young boy was unable to stand or speak.
When investigators asked the stepfather, Brian Hall, about this deplorable abuse, he replied:
“He is not my responsibility; I’m not his father. I come from a rich and white family.”
He pointed to the two other children in the living who are his, and said, “Those two are taken care of.”
He is facing charges of failure to report suspected child abuse or neglect.
All the children were taken into DCF custody.Brian Hall, Daytona Beach Man who is hopefully getting ass-raped on a daily basis in prison, as the karmatic devices of the universe unfurl their poetic balancing act.

Meet Bradley Barefoot of Port Orange, Florida. 43 years old. He was arrested Wednesday night for stealing a forklift… again.
Back in April of 2016, Daytona Beach police reported that Barefoot took a forklift from behind a Best Buy around 4 in the morning.
He was caught bare-footed again on Wednesday, June 28th on Nova Road in Port Orange. Police tell us that: “There was a male parked in a handicap spot with a piece of heavy equipment that had a mattress on it. The male was barefoot, talking to himself while swearing and throwing his hands up.”
Barefoot had moved some boxes around and then drove it around the Bob Evans restaurant on International Speedway Boulevard before getting busted.
When Daytona Beach police asked why he took the forklift, he said:
“…it was better than walking.”
They arrested him, and according to clickorlando.com he was charged with grand theft.
A separate forklift theft incident took place recently in the Florida Keys too:
Florida people just love stealing forklifts I guess…
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – A 20-year-old man was arrested after he allegedly stole a 36-foot boat that later crashed ashore in Daytona Beach with no one aboard, Volusia County Beach Safety officials said.
Officials said Jonathan Race stole the boat from a marina in Daytona Beach Saturday morning.
Coast Guard officials began searching after the boat ran ashore near the Silver Beach entrance of the beach at about 10:30 a.m., beach safety officials said.
The boat was traveling full speed when it came ashore, investigators said. Beach safety officers had to board the boat and turn off the engine. Full Story »
DAYTONA BEACH — A homeless man stole a forklift from behind a Best Buy store, moved some large boxes to a neighboring parking lot and then took the machine for a spin on Williamson Boulevard, police said.
After a Daytona Beach police officer stopped him and asked him what he was doing, Bradley Barefoot said he wanted to drive because it was better than walking, according to the arrest report.
Barefoot was driving the forklift around 4 a.m., although the machine had no lights on and it wasn’t street legal, the report said.
Barefoot, 43, was charged with one count of grand theft. He is being held on $5,000 bail at the Volusia County Branch Jail. Full Story »

20-year-old Brandon Ware was arrested early Friday morning for reckless driving and booked into the Volusia County Branch Jail.
The t-shirt Ware was wearing was explicit and ironic reading “(expletive) speeding tickets”.
According to police Ware was doing burnouts in his black GMC truck in the 700 block of South Atlantic Avenue where news crews were. Police say Ware did multiple 360’s in a reckless manner and at a high rate of speed at the base of the bridge.
Records show Ware was released from jail Friday evening after posting $500 bail.
Hurricane Matthew really brings out the best in us. Thank you again, Florida Man.
Here we have an ambitious young man living in Daytona. At only 20 years old, Devin Hoyt-Thayer came up with a clever way to capitalize on a car he recently stole.This Daytona resident stole a car and tried selling it back to the owner for a hunna fiddy dollars
Walter Potts, who was the victim of this car theft, received a phone call from Devin who told him he knew where the car was. Potts was told to show up at the Save-a-Lot at 288 Nova Road, with $150, where someone would deliver the keys.
So they met. Cops were waiting inside an unmarked vehicle watching the whole thing.
The police report states that when Devin arrived at the Save-a-Lot and showcased the keys in all his salesperson glory , officers stepped up. Devin noticed this and started running toward the parking lot of O’Reilly Auto Parts, 145 N. Nova. He tried hiding inside, but obviously was not at ninja level, given the fact he spent Monday night at Volusia County Branch Jail.
In fact, Devin was simply “hiding” in the aisle of the store, presumably acting like a nonchalant shopper. After ditching the keys, our young business man thought he could trick these pigs.
His bail is only $2,500 which is still a massive number compared to the $150 he tried to score for this stolen vehicle. Maybe he’s not such a bad person, I mean that’s a good deal for a car… He told the cops he only charged Walter ten bucks for the car keys.
Nice try Devin… but as far as actually thinking this would work… WTF?
So here is today’s marketing plan brought to you from Florida:
- Steal car
- Locate owner
- Offer to sell the car back to the owner
