Can we just give Florida it's own news partition? Like "regular news" in one column, and "because you've given up all hope that your state couldn't possibly be any dumber" in the other?

Reverse the roles and the cop would not even be charged.
It's an interstate. Pedestrians are forbidden for a reason.

A study of the originating "weird" news events from Florida, California, and Texas needs compared with other states. Sociologists need to evaluate the causes and statistics without concern for political correctness.

Add NY which also gets its share of "weird" news events.

The reason is obvious. These are the most populous states, so more weird stories come from these states. Indeed more of any kind of stories: good, bad, weird, happy. Per capita there are no more "weird" stories coming from those states than anywhere else.
