The central and north central part of Florida is a hotbed for white supremacists!!

Because the University of Florida is in Gainesville, that town is not too bad, so I'm a little surprised that the guy was working for the Alachua County Sheriff's Office! However, there are lots of little surrounding towns in the Gainesville area which have a really bad history in terms of racism for a LONG time. Lots of bad things happened in that area, even up into the late 1960s. Apparently there are still a lot of white racists living up there.

I guess inland it's more like the further South you go the more likely you'll be eaten by gators.
