    What is this Florida Man? A new species of human that needs to be given its own scientific name? Homo Floridanus perhaps?

    I do not believe them to be human. SubHuman perhaps?

    I see. I think every country thinks it's got its own Florida.

    Definitely. Not many countries or US states have the Sunshine law though.

    Need to watch the Twitter Video (warning: foul language in parts):

    White male driving southbound on Florida Turnpike began acting strange, exited his Toyota SUV, walked on highway, jumped over median and on top of a northbound Semi Tractor-Trailer, then began striking the window with his hands. Trooper intercepted them 9 miles later...

    Some, insider info on why the truck didn't just "stop." Truck drivers are taught, since Reginald Denny, not to stop until they can find a safe place to stop. He was probably on the phone with the Troopers while driving and they coordinated with the driver where to pull off.

    Isn't it was the passenger who was recording with a phone?

    The truck guy was actively trying to shake off (the guy who is either having a psychotic episode or on drugs) could of easily killed him

    Yeah trying to shake them off might be understandable, but certainly likely to kill them .

    The truck driver should have stopped and let the guy climb off the truck safely. The guy was visibly not armed and presumably not a threat to the driver.

    I'm not sure I'd use 'not a threat' to describe that idiot. I very much doubt if the driver had stopped the truck all he was going to do was climb off safely.
