Florida Man August 18: The Planned Mass Shooting
A Florida Man was arrested August 18th, 2019 after making threats to commit a mass shooting via text message. He sent messages to someone saying he was going to shoot people in a crowd, killing as many of them as possible. This may be scary enough as is but it doesn’t seem to out of the normal for a Florida Man.
What makes this story very much Florida Man like was the fact that he wanted to go for a world record of longest kill streak ever. He also had a location chosen but the location was not shared with the public.
Also something creepy to note is that Florida Man used a lot of emojis when texting about the mass shooting plans he had. One might think he was a teenage girl with how many he used.
It turns out Florida Man isn’t that good at planning though. He had everything he needed, but guns. The Florida Man did not own a single gun at the time of planning all of this out. That is pretty good for everyone though or Florida Man would be even scarier than he already is.
