Alexander Michael Sardinas of Florida was arrested this week after allegedly kidnapping a 17-year-old girl and forcing her to help him get past a COVID-19 checkpoint. The 37-year-old man and an unnamed woman from Islamorada took the girl from a Publix parking lot in Homestead, according to ABC News.

The 17-year-old girl, who’s name has been kept private, is a resident of the Florida Keys. In an effort to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, the Florida Keys have been closed to those who are not residents through the end of the month. In order to travel through the checkpoint, a driver would need to prove that they are a resident.

Sardinas and the 43-year-old woman had already tried to get through the checkpoint but were denied entry because they did not have the proper documentation. Thus, they intended to use the teenage girl to help them gain entrance. They instructed the girl, under the threat of physical harm, to drive them to Tavernier. She did as she was instructed and upon reaching the checkpoint she handed over her drivers license and proof of residence. At the time, she did not inform anyone that she had been kidnapped because she feared that she would be harmed. They were all permitted to travel on.

The 17-year-old later dropped off Sardinas at a gas station and dropped the woman off at a pharmacy. Once she was alone she called a family member who later informed police of the dangerous situation. Police were able to track down both the male and female suspects who both claimed they had never been in the car with the teenage victim. Nevertheless, their stories regarding how they met her did not match up.

3. I wait with baiting breath to hear Florida Man side of tale!



Do we know if he goes to church?
Do we know his porn habits?

Yes, mocking the 24/7 know-it-all internet, indeed.

4. Perhaps a typo that your proofreading didn't catch either? I think you mean


bated breath.

It is from the word abate, which means to lessen.

So bated breath is breath held in. It has nothing to do with bait for fishing and things like that. Also, it is the past tense of the verb, since the image evoked is one of breath already held, not beginning to be held.

10. Not that I'd want to defend him...

but it looks like he dropped it for the mugshot.

It might have been no more than a prop to conceal his face during his criminal act.

I couldn't quite figure out the logistics, either.

8. This story illustrates

something about the mindset of people who don't regard the virus as a serious matter. They care about themselves. They care about their personal inconvenience due to social restrictions.

They do not care about the general welfare of the human community at large. If their needs are being met, the world around them can burn to the ground. This is the mindset of many on the right side of the political spectrum. "Right and good" means whatever benefits themselves and those in their immediate circle.

The actual "right and good" things that are designated so by the major religions and moral philosophies of the human race are always twisted and re-worked so that they are always rewarded.

Liberals and progressives are not perfect. I have encountered many who are just as "holier than thou" as extreme Christians. But the very meaning of the world "liberal" is an understanding that the broader view must always be taken into account. No one with a liberal perspective thinks, As long as I get to safety, everyone else can suffer and die.
