No Confidence in Sheriff Scott Israel

Some people can’t take a hint. The man who bears the most institutional  responsibility for the massacre at Stoneman Douglas High School, that would be Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, has received a stinging vote of no confidence from his deputies. It wasn't even close. Israel lost by 534-94. 

For now Sheriff Israel seems to be planning on clinging to his job. Not only is he incompetent, but he has no sense of dignity or decency. Better to blame the NRA, huh, Scott.

The deputies of Broward County have issued a stunning rebuke of Sheriff Scott Israel by voting “no confidence” in his leadership.

The deputies voted “no confidence” by a 534-94 margin and will ask Florida Governor Rick Scott to remove Israel from his position.

Sheriff Israel has faced intense scrutiny for the way he handled the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February.

Deputy Scot Peterson, the school resource officer on duty at the time of the shooting, waited outside when it was clear what was going on inside the school. It was later revealed that even after additional deputies arrived on scene, they waited behind their cars instead of entering the school and trying to eliminate the threat. The deputies were reportedly given an order to “stand down.”

Aside from the immediate response, Israel was also criticized because his office allegedly mishandled dozens of calls about the shooter, Nikolas Cruz.

Wouldn't happen to a real leader. It's clear that he's not one.
