Student Googles Himself, Learns He’s Convicted Murderer
Zachary Garcia, University of Florida Student and Publix grocery store employee, googled himself to discover his picture being circulated by the Polk County Sheriff as a main suspect in a September murder case. The Sheriff department made a mistake, the man they are looking for is Zachery Garcia- with an E. The innocent college student had this to say:
“I was just very shocked to find my picture and the article saying that I was convicted of a felony murder charge,” he said, “and I was just very shocked and angry that someone put my name up there and said I did something I didn’t do.”
“Everybody makes mistakes,” Garcia added. “I work at Publix and I might get somebody’s sub (order) wrong. But for somebody to get (the photo of a suspect) wrong…it’s not a sandwich, it’s somebody’s life you’re playing with.”
Another terrific reason to google yourself as much as possible.

Try something today. Count how many times someone brings up some sort of mental illness in normal conversation. Add that number up and tell me it doesn’t strike you as kind of weird how many normal people walk around with the belief that there is something wrong with them.
