A lower cost of living (and warmer) than the Northeast. It's certainly no secret that FL attracts a lot of sex offenders and other criminals. I actually think the cost of living in FL is back to normal.

I'm not sure who is complaining of the cost of living in Florida being high. It's not all that high compared to many places. Florida is along with the national average, so the cost of living is NOT high.

Yes, sex offenders are bad everywhere, but Florida is one of the worst.
Facts?

Links?

As usual none.

As usual they only respond to posts that have no facts to back themselves up with their own baseless posts.

There are 30 states with higher per capita sex crimes. Many that are higher are northern states.
Could you explain that?

I looked this article up - very interestin Com - I think it is all bad, but I do think that there is a play on words - reading into the article it says Central Orlando is AMONG the leaders. 86 is bad, but doesn't seem like that much for a town that size. Don't get me wrong 8 is too much, but per capita, it doesn't seem that unusual.

Crimes against children are the worst! These are grim statistics.

You know I'm trying to look up these offenders and it is more than difficult as far as those who are registered the list isn't accurate - I find it completely impossible that there are only 16 resgistered offenders in Florida.
