Sheriff Scott Israel seems to be presiding over a three-ring circus, and instead of having you notice the elephants running around him, he barks about gun control. According to journalist Sara Carter, forty of Israel's deputies have been charged with instances by the Broward State Attorney of "Armed Kidnapping, Battery, Assault, Falsifying records, Official Misconduct, Narcotics trafficking, and other crimes involving dishonesty and violence". While some were convicted many of the charges were plead down, resulting in clean records for a number of the deputies involved, according
Carter continues about Israel’s deputies: " Police responded to calls regarding Cruz over 45 times over a seven-year period, although Israel disputes the report, stating his office only received 23 calls during that time frame. The FBI also received a detailed call on Jan. 5, warning that Cruz had posted disturbing images of slaughtered animals and comments on his Instagram saying he wanted to kill people, according to reports. The FBI stated on Feb. 16, that the tip was not forwarded to the FBI Miami Field Office."
The Parkland shooter was a clear and present danger that was incompetently ignored by the Broward Sheriff's Office. In spite of the Sheriff deflecting, claiming his deputies' cowardice is "not his responsibility", he, in fact, is responsible. This is why Fla. lawmakers have moved to suspend Sheriff Israel and put an end to his self-assessed "amazing" leadership.
