Suspended Broward Sheriff Scott Israel won’t go quietly
The Miami Herald ^ | JANUARY 11, 2019 07:08 PM, | BY MARTIN VASSOLO AND JULIE K. BROWN

Flanked by members of a local African-American faith community, a defiant Scott Israel defended himself against allegations of incompetence on Friday and made clear he would fight his suspension on any front necessary — whether before the Florida Senate or in state or federal court.

Israel, 62, a two-term Democratic sheriff of Broward County, was suspended by Gov. Ron DeSantis three days after the new Republican governor was sworn into office. DeSantis cited a list of failures enumerated by a state panel that investigated BSO’s response to the Feb. 14, 2018, shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.

They never go quietly because they have no sense of shame. Ever.

If Sheriff Scott Israel had a conscience, he would have resigned of his own accord after his incompetence in handling the mass school shooting. If he had a conscience.

What I want to know is can Israel run for Sheriff again and if he wins re-take his old position? Does DeSantis have the ability to keep him out of office forever? Broward County is a RAT $hit hole which might actually re-elect him.

...

He was replaced by a black man, who is a real police officer and not a politician. He’s run his own company that helps schools and other institutions prevent and deal with mass shootings. And he was recommended to the governor by the father of one of the Parkland victims.

In Japan they do more than just resign, after something like that.

Why didn’t Rick Scott take this action?

White liberals can always turn out members of this Looters-R-Us crowd when they get into trouble and successfully achieved corruption is under threat.

Scott initiated a study into the incident, but the report didn't come out until a few weeks ago.

DeSantis now has the report to back up the suspension; Scott did not.

I think that you already know the answer to that question. In the past, perhaps not. However, we are in the here and now and he is a Democrat. Since neither decency or the law applies to Democrats, he probably will run and will have a 99 and 44/100 chance of being elected.

This is all another fraud by our Gov’t. No one really knows what happened and it is 11 months later. Just like Las Vegas, where many more were killed and they haven’t started an investigation. DS running wild and no one challenges a thing.

Amen.

There is a pretty comprehensive report on Parkland. Far more than what has been released on Vegas.

“I think that you already know the answer to that question.”

Yes, given what Florida did with respect to Alcee Hastings. But in that case he was impeached and removed as a judge, then ran and won a Congressional seat. My comment was centered on if Israel is found guilty of malfeasance, does that fact end up disqualifying him from running for his old position. So I am wondering if there is going to be a legal proceeding now on whether or not he is in fact guilty of malfeasance.
