    Broward County sheriff offers 'fact check;' union demands actual facts. PARKLAND, Fla. - While public outrage might be centered on Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel for the agency's apparent failures regarding the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, deputies are also paying the price. Broward sheriff's Deputy Jeff Bell said his fellow deputies are hearing it all too often these days, being called cowards....snip "It's the deputies that are out on the street taking the beating," said Bell, who serves as the president of the IUPA union, which represents the rank and filed at BSO. "It's the individual deputy that...
  • What does Broward Sheriff Scott Israel not want us to see?

    Sun Sentinel ^ | March 7, 2018
    Since the Valentine’s Day shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, many government officials have walled off information needed to assess how well they did their jobs. At the head of the pack is Broward Sheriff Scott Israel, who suggests the school’s resource officer acted cowardly during the mass shooting and two deputies mishandled earlier warnings. Aside from that, though, the sheriff wants you to take his word that he and his deputies did amazing work before, during and after the shooting.

    [Full headline:] "If Sheriff Israel is the “amazing” leader he says he is, he will release videos of his deputies’ actions during Parkland shooting" It’s imperative that Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel release video recordings of what his deputies did, and didn’t do, outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School while Nikolas Cruz was on a killing spree inside. First, Israel himself has said that the public needs to know this information. He’s right, and he should accommodate the people on whose behalf he and his deputies work. This is an extraordinary case in which his department bears a large share...
  • Politico Writer Angry at Broward Sheriff for Hurting Liberal Anti-NRA Narrative

    Newsbusters ^ | March 3, 2018 | P.J. Gladnick
    Michael Grunwald expressed his anger in Politico magazine at Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel. He is upset because Sheriff Israel's inept leadership and boastful manner has diverted attention away from the anti-NRA narrative being promoted by the left and the mainstream media. Yes, instead of being primarily concerned about how the sheriff overlooked dozens of red flags that allowed the tragic shooting to take place on Valentine's Day in Parkland Florida at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Grunwald focused his ire upon him because the sheriff, not the NRA, became the primary target of anger.

    A video has surfaced of Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel attending a meeting of Muslims, where both Israel and one of his deputies spoke in Arabic. The deputy said that Israel pledged to keep young people out of jail and to put “God first, your family second and the community third.” Israel credits his deputy Nezar Hamze as a likeminded individual who is on the same mission as Israel. Israel compares himself and Hamze to lions on a mission. Both Israel and Namze boast that they keep young people out of jail, rather than put them in. “I want you...

    The Broward County Sheriff’s Office is a mess. While I have no doubt there are good, capable deputies within the department, they’re marred by being in the same department with Sheriff Scott Israel. The embattled sheriff’s woes began with the Parkland shooting but only seem to grow, probably in part due to his vocal stance on gun control in the immediate aftermath now looking like a case of wagging the dog. The latest is the sheer number of investigations by the Broward State Attorney’s office into the sheriff’s department. There is a pile of them. Since 2012, there have been...

    Like Wesley Mouch, the bumbling central planner in 'Atlas Shrugged,' Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel keeps messing up then demanding wider powers. The shooting in Parkland, Florida, was supposed to be yet another morality tale about the evils of private gun ownership, showing us why we need to surrender our weapons to the state. It has ended up being a massive story about government incompetence and indifference, centering around Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel. It just goes to show you. The moment I write something nice about the office of sheriff, a sheriff has to go and bring discredit to...

    (Conservative Tribune) – Political motivations often lead to bad policy — in the case of the Broward County School District, political motivations led to deadly policy. A look at the past seven years since Scott Israel became the head of the Broward County Sheriff’s Office reveal his agenda for self-advancement by making the school district in his jurisdiction appear safer. His actions proved to do the exact opposite. During his reelection campaign in 2016, Israel proudly toted his accomplishments of “sharply reduc(ing) violent crime and burglary rates,” as well as his “innovative initiatives” to keep students in school and out...
  • After 2017 airport shooting exposes weaknesses, Broward leaders grapple with what to do next

    ......In an interview with the Herald, Israel said that it cost his agency about $300,000 to respond to the Jan. 6 shooting. Additionally, it will cost BSO about $100,000 a month in overtime to provide more security, he said. “I will be going to the county asking to finance that bill,” he said. Broward Mayor Barbara Sharief said in an interview that she had not heard that dollar amount from Israel and said until the county completes an after-action report, it can’t determine whether overtime is needed. That in-depth review could take several weeks, if not months. A 99-page report...

    The big question now is: When are Sheriff Scott Israel and his deputy Nezar Hamze going to be asked to turn their badges in? Not let out in the mainstream media’s “official narrative” on the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting is that the Broward County Sheriff’s Department had been spending resources on firearms training at radical area mosques with attendees being taught how to protect themselves. The progressive left’s Second Amendment slogan should be: ‘Guns: Safe in the hands of jihadists, but not in the hands of American citizens’.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports survey shows that Americans blame government rather than guns for the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting. According to Rasmussen, 54% of Americans believe government failure is to “blame for the mass shooting.” Only 33% of Americans blame guns. Eleven percent of Americans say they are unsure what contributed to the occurrence of the mass shooting. When the sample group was adjusted so as to focus only on Americans “who have children of elementary or secondary school age,” the percentage of Americans who cite government failure as causal jumped to 61 and the percentage who blamed...

    The man who killed 17 people at a South Florida high school had more than half his rounds remaining when he dropped his rifle and fled, a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation told CNN. The shooter had fired about 150 times when he dropped his AR-15-style rifle and escaped from school property by blending in with fleeing students. He left 180 rounds of ammo unused, the official said. "Investigators have found indications that the shooter may have tried to break a window, which leads them to believe he wanted to use the area as a sniper's perch to...

Forty of the investigations occurred under embattled Sheriff Scott Israel’s watch. His office is now under investigation for allegations that his deputies failed to allow first responders...

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has its foundation in the terrorist organization Hamas.

    n an "Ingraham Angle" exclusive, Laura Ingraham aired a purported internal email from the Broward County Sheriff's Office that directed employees to defend Sheriff Scott Israel. Ingraham said the email was given to her by a source and that their veracity was "confirmed" by a second source. It urges all staff members to vigorously support Israel as he "find[s himself] up against a flurry of media allegations." "He stood with us, and now we must stand with him," the email reads. "The focus should be on getting to the bottom of what happened," Ingraham said. "[It] shouldn't be about saving...

    Sheriff Scott Israel's performance has been disgraceful. The sheriff is an outsized figure in the American imagination. He is Wyatt Earp, shooting it out with outlaws at the O.K. Corral. He is John Wayne, a lonely instrument of frontier justice. He is Rick Grimes, the resourceful survivor of a zombie apocalypse in “The Walking Dead.” Now, along comes Scott Israel to remind us, despite the legend, how a sheriff can be a hack politician whose primary concern is protecting his own political reputation and little fief. The Broward County sheriff, whose disgraceful performance in the Stoneman Douglas shooting has been...

    According to the first responder, everything about the response was completely botched. “Everything I was trained on mass casualty events says they did the wrong thing,” he explained. “You don’t wait for the scene to be cleared. You go in immediately armed. Retrieve the victims. You can’t leave the victims laying there.” The EMS worker believes that if he and other medical responders were allowed to enter the building as soon as they arrived, they could have saved more lives. He explained he was willing to risk his life to save the lives of others and was very frustrated over...
