Kirsters Baish| A lot of blame should be placed on Sheriff Israel’s office in the case of the Parkland, Florida high school shooting that took place last month. Sheriff Israel deserves a fair amount of that blame. The sheriff’s office took in roughly 50 calls involving Nikolas Cruz even though he claimed that the number was closer to 20.
Grassley compared Israel’s failure to show up with his frequent media appearances. He was at a pro-gun town hall hosted by liberal news network CNN days after the shooting at the Parkland, Florida high school.
“I’ve seen that sheriff all over television discussing the shooting, so it’s disappointing that he has refused to speak to the country through his testimony before this committee.”
