Skip to comments.Tantrum: Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel Blames NRA For His Suspension
Posted on 01/12/2019 2:48:05 PM PST by Kaslin
As Cortney noted, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel has been suspended by Gov. Ron DeSantis. This was expected. Israel had told staff prior to this announcement that this would most likely happen. And Gov. DeSantis made it official.
Israel, who has been criticized for how his department responded to the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school last February, also took part in the CNN town hall event, where he slammed the National Rifle Association. The event was held days after the shooting. Now, with his suspension, Israel has blamed the NRA, and said this was all about politics.
"There was no wrong doing on my part" says ousted Broward Sheriff Scott Israel.

NEW: Suspended Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel responds to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' Executive Order: "This suspension is not about what occurred on February 14th... this was about politics, not about Parkland." https://t.co/U7vcZIgAW8 pic.twitter.com/ka1XYd0vZ8— ABC News (@ABC) January 11, 2019
It was also revealed after this CNN town hall that his deputy never went into the building to confront the shooter, Nikolas Cruz. Still, as it became clear that Israel’s department dropped that ball, he remained adamant that nothing was his fault. There were also allegations that Israel had built a political machine in the county with taxpayer money, but the mounting criticism to the response to the school shooting prompted a confidence vote from the rank-and-file. And it didn’t get better. A deputy, who has since been fired, that was in charge of school security after the shooting was caught sleeping on the job.
I'm glad that there is some justice given today. And to @ScottJIsrael , who tried to blame me and others for his incompetencies, there is so, so much I could say to you, and would, if I wasn’t trying to be a better Christian. Instead, I’m just going to pray for you. Genuinely.— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) January 11, 2019
85% of Scott Israel’s deputies voted no confidence in him. Parkland parents of every political persuasion stood by the podium cheering the decision. He says this is “unjust.” Tell that to the 17 families who unjustly lost a loved one. https://t.co/EkKC6vZuow— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) January 12, 2019
More from the Executive Order: “Sheriff Israel’s deputies interviewed by the MSD Public Safety Commission could not remember the last time they attended active shooter training or what type of training they received...” @CBSMiami @ccoddcbs4news @DeFede @FrancesWangTV #developing— liz roldan (@lizroldancbs4) January 11, 2019
That is the behavior I expected from him- a tantrum. He should be replaced. There is a process to do that legally.
His failure is not his fault. It’s NRA’s fault for pointing it out.
Wait; I thought it was the fault of guns themselves.
He’s lucky he wasn’t permanently “suspended” by the parent of one of the murdered kids...
This cowardly scum will sound no different than Hillary in his excuses. One after the other will be invented so as to constantly distract. Then, the book titled “Why I’m Gone” will be ghost written and leftist speakers will line him up for a book tour along with the film crew who made the fake documentary of Ruth Ginsburg.
Its all done all the time and how the left manufactures that they are right when they are dead wrong out of thin air.
Law Enforcement is not your strong suit, maybe a Barista at Starbucks cleaning out the needle bucket.
Here he is with his “buddy”...
“”There was no wrong doing on my part” says ousted Broward Sheriff Scott Israel.”
YOU failed. As for the details? Nobody cares.
he knew in advance, did nothing as the murders happened
(as previously), covered it up, lied about it,
and ought be indicted.
Why can’t he take it like a man? Hiding behind his badge.
He should be eating from a straw.
“There is a process to do that legally.”
I believe that has been done.
He sounds like a pussy, Jim.
....he was just following Odungo’s orders...
Actually Sheriff Israel is right. This was about politics. His politics to be exact. He allowed his leftist views to interfere with his job as the Sheriff of Broward County and left his officers ill prepared to deal with a mass shooting. Idiot. I wish him well in his new career as a greeter at the local Walmart!
The coward of Broward....
Of course it was. Trump sent Russian agents to threaten the NRA if they didn’t blackmail DeSantis into suspending the sheriff. See, everything is aboult collusion.
