I am I think justly proud of this thread.

Even most Cubans are moderate on so-called social issues.

Yeah, one of the things I liked over the last week was the Cubans going "Dudes! We care about things other than immigration!""

We have a few rabid "pro-lifers" but Cubans are coy about bedroom politics for the most part.

gf was searching for some people she knew from elementary school and their mugshots came up on google

The State of Florida is unapologetic about the market its mug-shot posts have enabled. “We are very public-record–friendly. We are one of the most transparent states out there,” Kristi Gordon, a spokeswoman for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, said. “As soon as a photo is taken at a booking facility, it becomes a public record.”

what a state

The question seems too ludicrous to even pose, but sadly a 17-year-old boy was recently killed in Florida after an argument that took place over his music being too loud.

I dated a girl in Volusia and had another friend that lived there...and as a result of this, nothing in that story surprises me in the least.

always on the edge

Florida Department of Environmental Protection officials have been ordered not to use the term “climate change” or “global warming” in any official communications, emails, or reports, according to former DEP employees, consultants, volunteers and records obtained by the Florida Center for Investigative Reporting.

Yeah.

This was the 11th Circuit, so it's not just Florida (11th also covers Alabama and Georgia - so you know, quality) but this is of a piece

http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2017/03/17/appeals_court_rules_officer_who_killed_man_in_his_own_home_cannot_be_sued.html

law enforcement in the south is unimpeachable. shoot a man, shoot an innocent man, shoot an innocent man in his own home for the crime of opening the door while armed, or just boil him to death for being mentally ill, you're golden with a badge.

An associate medical examiner testified Thursday in the murder trial of a South Florida man accused of killing his girlfriend that he’s never before seen an example of someone choking to death from oral sex. But that’s what defense attorney Ken Padowitz intends to present to the jury in the murder trial of Richard Patterson. Patterson, 65, of Margate, is charged with second-degree murder in the choking death of his girlfriend, Francisca Marquinez, 60, in 2015.

Iouri Boiko, Broward County’s associate medical examiner, testified for the prosecution that a penis would have to be lodged far enough down a person’s throat to prevent someone from breathing. Boiko said it would take two to three minutes for someone to die that way, so a sign of struggle would be obvious. “If she cannot breathe, she usually start to kicking, biting or to do something to prevent this blocking of the airway, try to open this airway,” Boiko testified. “It’s (a) normal reaction of any person.”

The exercise is put on each year as a part of the Special Forces Industry Conference, a 12,000-strong, three-day meeting of Special Operations personnel and companies showcasing the latest technologies available to both U.S. troops and their international allies.

Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn is captured by pirates and held ashore near the convention center here. Soon after, as thousands of spectators watched from nearby rooftops, party boats and bar patios, Black Hawk helicopters supported by smaller gunships and fast-moving riverine craft descended on the area.
