[Full headline:] "If Sheriff Israel is the amazing leader he says he is, he will release videos of his deputies actions during Parkland shooting"
Its imperative that Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel release video recordings of what his deputies did, and didnt 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. Hes 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 of responsibility for Cruz getting as far as he did without interference. Warning signs about Cruzs dangerous mental state had come to the departments attention over at least a decade.
Instead, Israel refuses to release the recordings, arguing that they are exempt from the states public record laws. He says that they reveal security plans and are part of ongoing investigations.
Reveal security plans? Nonsense. By the sheriffs own admission, whatever security plans the Broward Sheriffs Office had in place failed horribly when Cruz killed 17 people and injured 15. On Feb. 22, Israel disclosed the shocking information that school resource officer Scot Peterson stood outside for four minutes while the Cruz was inside, firing an AR-15.

What did he know and when did he know it?
Nixon didn’t get anybody killed. Israel did.
Different strokes for different folks.
Can’t let those security plans fall into the wrong hands. Then they’d have to change the plans that have worked so well up till now.
Democrats never screw up. The BSO deputies were brainwashed into action by Russian meddling.
Time to indict some more Russian trolls in St. Petersburg.
What is he a 14 year old girl or something? What adult, middle aged man refers to himself as amazing??
Valley Girls are dumb. First time I heard a Sheriff praise himself so unseemly.
That’s before all that damaging info came out.
With all due respect, Florida deserves better for their law enforcement. What were these folks thinking? What was BO’B thinking?
This Israel dude is now being compared to this blast from the past:
You DO remember him, right? Though NO WAR is funny, this guy had us in stitches. He was so apparent in his phony baloney “news” alerts.
It can only be the fault of the Democrats’ imaginary evil twin. Russians!
He is a lying sack like the rest of the rats
Security plans? This fraud had none.
Sure he did. The whole Broward hive of them did... but they were security plans for race hustlers and the movers/shakers of the Democrat Party.
(HAT TIP REASON.COM)
Asked about allegations of political corruption, his handing out tax dollars to supporters,
Israel responded, "What have I done differently than Don Shula or Abraham Lincoln or Martin Luther King, Gandhi?"
During his laugable 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 of jail, the Sun Sentinel reported.
Those campaign statistics were nothing more than a smokescreen......even outright lies this turkey got a stupid electorate to gobble up.
In 2013, a year after Isreal duped a bunch of the dolts into electing him, The Broward County School Board and District Superintendent made an agreement with Broward County Law enforcement officials to essentially stop arresting students for any crimes whatsoever b/c they were being committed by minority criminals.
Also whipping Broward into shape, then-pres Obama and his henchmen at The NAACP. ThusNO DAMAGING POLICE RECORDS ON-FILE for the minority class---the ones committing all the crimes.
Well, editing videotape to make the result convincing takes time, don’t you know?
Bob Corcoran, Senate leader, said on Hannity I believe, that they are all over Israel. Sent 9 subpoenas already. For vids, calls, logs, radio comms, etc. Said Rick Scott is on a mission. FDLE is moving fast. That Israel will be gone fast, one way or another. Yay!
Nah - he’s way to humble and modest to do that.......
His focus was not on prevention of crime, it was on control of arrest statistics.
why was management of those statistics sufficient for him to remain employed for so long..?
because so many power holders in that county were insulated from the actual effects of those policies.
It’s basically a Florida version of what Victor Davis Hanson elucidates in the case of California:
that there are two Lifestyles; one for the very rich and very liberal who live in gated communities, away from the consequences of the liberal policies they Lobby for, and then the ordinary people, who have to live with the effects of those policies and get shot.
——it was on control of arrest statistics.-——
Just such a condition was projected by one season of the Wire. The politics in Baltimore absolutely controlled the police leadership to the point the police were effectively prevented from police work.
The actual police on the job tried to act but were repeatedly thwarted. Some gave in and ate donuts.
Sheriff Israel’s plan: If you can’t steal taxpayer funds by lowering actual crime, then you simply quit reporting any crimes.
