The Broward Sheriff's Office Deputies Association said a symbolic vote among its members, initiated last week, indicated 534 of 628 officers in the union voted they had no confidence in the sheriff The association, a chapter of the International Union of Police Associations, cited the national criticism surrounding Israel and his office following the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Feb. 14. Israel, in response to the announcement of a vote, said union boss Jeff Bell was trying "to use the Parkland tragedy as a bargaining tactic to extort a 6.5 percent raise" from the sheriff's office, according to the Sun-Sentinel. Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel discredited himself with his handling of the Parkland shooting, where he tried to vilify gun owners as a group while heaping credit on himself. Now he faces a no confidence vote from his own deputies. Bell told the newspaper that "amazing leadership starts from the top, and there is no amazing leadership here," adding that members of the union "have displayed great courage to come out and vote under threat of retaliation and reprisal from the sheriff. Continue Reading Below The sheriff has stood by his leadership of the policing agency and its response to the school shooting, which left 17 people dead. Bell said the association's next step is to present the vote to Florida Gov. Rick Scott who rejected calls from some state legislators to suspend Israel after the shooting and to ask him to "please make change and replace the sheriff with somebody who is capable of amazing leadership."

These deputies are screaming for help getting rid of thos clown. This week there is a new scandal that Isreal has been giving away taxpayer paid fuel to cronies.

Too bad there wasn’t also a ‘No Honor’ option for the gutless bastard.
Hes a POS and shouldve been fired weeks ago
Israel will resign in the near future to spend more time with his family.
Good riddance. He’s not gone yet but hopefully soon.

Israel was ridiculously clueless about how his demeanor played in the aftermath of Parkland.
The Sheriff, Scott Israel, problem lies in the hands of the citizens & voters in Broward County Florida. This low life Democrat, Hack, Scott Israel knew exactly that this insane kid was afoot, and he did nothing about it.
That the parents of these slain innocent children and their would be school protector are remaining silent to this aide (Israel) of murder, Israel is both unbelievable & amazing. I guess Debbi Wasserman Schultz has all these fools fooled, that is was the gun that killed their precious kids. No...it was Israel, the school administrators, and, the FBI that aided the killing of these seventeen innocents.
Scott Israel should be fired today....without pension, vacation time or otherwise. Governor Scott, do your freaking job, sir!!!

CONSERVATIVE TALKIES RESPONDING TO THE MEDIA’S WAR ON THE NRA, GUNS, AND THE 2ND AMENDMENT ONLY AIDS THEM IN CONCEALING THE POLICY FAILURES AS A NATIONAL ISSUE WHICH PERMITTED PARKLAND TO OCCUR
WAS PARKLAND AN IDYLLIC SCHOLASTIC SETTING OR A NIGHTMARE
Only an investigation will either dispel or prove that with those policies enforced. Students had all kinds of disciplinary problems (drugs, thefts fights etc) when attending classses there. Were scholastic standards lowered to fit fed DOJ grants ?
WHERE WAS THE DEMAND FOR FEDERAL AND STATE INVESTIGATIONS ????
It was not guns or the NRA Its policies which had cops standing outside while killing was going on or some nut getting a gun the FBI knew he wasnt suppose to... Plus a whole raft of other stuff
WAS THE DEMAND FOR STATE AND FED INVESTIGATION ON THE POLICIES WHICH CAUSED THIS NOT CONSIDERED BY FLORIDA POLS BECAUSE THE RESULT WOULD BE LAW SUITS AGAINST THE STATE ???
A Soros operative working with Democrats and “Arab Community Activists” to push for Gun Control.
This is actually refreshing for a change! Should be interesting to watch the empty badge wiggle out of this.
“Hes a POS and shouldve been fired weeks ago”
Problem is he is a perfect representative of the liberal filth who infest Broward County.
Exactly. Broward, Dade and Palm Beach counties are in Florida but not Of Florida. They are Of New York and New Jersey. They are completely alien to the rest of Florida.
Oh, you should SEE how the local Miami media is defending their hero, Democrat Gun Grabber Scott Israel.
First, they emphasize this is only one union out of eight that works for BSO.
THEN they say it has no legal effect.
THEN they repeat Scott Israel’s line about this being merely a dispute that has to do with contract negotiations.
AND the media is RARELY OR NEVER mentioning how TERRIBLE Scott Israel’s leadership was regarding monies for fighting crime ($100 MILLION allegedly never used to harden schools).
His lies and failure at Parkland are NEVER MENTIONED by the Miami media.
Scott Israel, good friend of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, is treated with kid gloves. For some reason, the media in Miami NEVER go after him or the Broward school superintendent Robert Runcie or the Miami schools super Alberto Carvalho.
Every single thing these guys say is treated like gospel truth.
Of course, rumors and unsubstantiated allegations regarding Donald Trump are treated as verified and documented facts.
“Broward deputies union votes ‘no confidence’ in Sheriff Israel”
Isn’t he a filthy northeast transplant?
“indicated 534 of 628 officers in the union voted they had no confidence in the sheriff”
So it was the 104 who were at the school.y
