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.

I remember taking the pen and notebook from that woman outside the courtroom, flipping to a clean page in the book, and writing, JESSICA IS SAD in big, bold, uncoordinated letters. “My sister is going to be a good writer someday! Look at how nice her lines are!”
To begin, I got totally screwed over in the dental genes department. I was born with a pretty severe overbite and a mouth that was too small.
If this doesn’t become the biggest video on the Internet, then I have no faith left in humanity.
