Fucking Florida

The woman on the left is a mother from Miami who was so desperate to feed her hungry family that she was trying to steal a lot of food.
The woman on the right is Miami-Dade County Police Officer Vicki Thomas. Officer Thomas was about to arrest Jessica Robles but changed her mind at the last minute.

Instead of arresting her, she bought Robles $100 worth of groceries:
“I made the decision to buy her some groceries because arresting her wasn’t going to solve the problem with her children being hungry.”
And there’s no denying they were hungry. Robles’ 12 year old daughter started crying when she told local TV station WSVN about how dire their situation was:
“[It’s] not fun to see my brother in the dirt hungry, asking for food, and we have to tell him, ‘There is nothing here.’”
Officer Thomas says she has no question that what she did was right:
“To see them go through the bags when we brought them in, it was like Christmas. That $100 to me was worth it.”
But Officer Thomas did have one request:
“The only thing I asked of her is, when she gets on her feet, that she help someone else out. And she said she would.”
And guess what? The story gets even better.
After word got out about what happened people donated another $700 for Jessica Robles to spend at the grocery store.
And then best of all a local business owner invited her in for an interview and ended up hiring her on the spot as a customer service rep.
She started crying when he told her:
“There’s no words how grateful I am that you took your time and helped somebody out. Especially somebody like me.”
And to think it all started with one veteran police officer trusting her “instinct” instead of going “by the book”.

Y’all better like this, anon doesn’t have much time before they turn into a grey blob

Plus god only knows how many BTUs (I thought we used KWs tho) it takes to cool a house during summer

For all you Floridians wanting to fight traffic tickets in Osceola county don't freaking hire Golden Traffic Ticket Law. They have ticked me off so much and at least, to me, they have been nothing but rude. Has anyone else hired them and have a testimonial?

No

I'm so confused why did you think someone would get shot during the Starbucks pay it forward thing??

It’s a joke
Since it’s something nice and generous
Happening in st pete
And it seems everybody is just getting shot over anything nowadays

Surprised nobody got shot

A very Florida situation: Recently my neighbors were busted as Cuban drug cartels and while confiscating the abundance of weed, the police also had to remove an alligator from their pool.
i hate florida so much i think my hate has gone full circle and i'm actually in love with hating florida now

You won
You won the game

I'm glad there is someone else who is not a big fan of Florida as well. I can't stand it here and im in one of the worst parts of Florida the capitol.
