Elder Patriot – Another leftist scumbag will bite the duct this week when Broward Sheriff Scott Israel is fired. Israel became infamous in the aftermath of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas H.S. massacre after his officers grossly mishandled the active shooter situation. Every move they made wound up being the wrong one and seventeen people died as a direct result.
But it appears that gross malfeasance isn’t the only reason, or even the primary reason he’s getting fired this week.
According to a report filed by Sara Carter:
“There are more than 66 investigations by the Broward County State Attorney’s office into Broward County Sheriff’s deputies and employees, ranging from drug trafficking to kidnapping since 2012, according to a 2014 Brady list produced by the Broward State Attorney’s office. Forty of the investigations occurred under embattled Sheriff Scott Israel’s watch.”
Add that to the fact that Sheriff Israel’s office was guilty of gross negligence when his deputies refused to permit first responders to treat the injured in the immediate aftermath of Nikolas Cruz’s shooting rampage as well as when he gave a stand down order to his deputies that prevented them from entering the school to engage the shooter and it’s a wonder he held on to his job this long.
There was also this dubious personnel decision. In 2015 Israel appointed Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) leader Nezar Hamze to be his Deputy Sheriff. This was remarkable considering CAIR had been named as a co-conspirator by the U.S. government in two federal trials dealing with the financing of Hamas, and is recognized as an international terrorist group by the government of United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Israel was a disaster and in late April Sheriff Deputies rendered a vote of no confidence against Israel.
Andrew Pollack, the father of seventeen-year-old Meadow, who was killed during the Parkland shooting rampage, received the endorsement of the Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputies Association because he promised to end the Promise Program that allowed Cruz to evade removal from the school earlier.
Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputies Association has refused to remain silent about the PROMISE program I commend them for breaking free from failed leadership of the past. They have just officially endorsed Dr. Rich Mendelson (@MendelsonBCPS6) for Broward County Schoolboard! #fixit pic.twitter.com/yt2ZrG0ZmX

Despite Israel’s immense failures of leadership, planning and ideology, if reports are correct, he will be terminated for criminal behavior and one can only assume that he will be indicted shortly thereafter.
“Approximately 66 BSO (Broward Sheriff’s Office) deputies and other employees, including supervisory personnel were arrested for, charged with, and/or convicted of crimes that run the gamut from Armed Kidnapping, to Battery, Assault, Falsifying records, Official Misconduct, Narcotics trafficking, and other crimes involving dishonesty and violence.”
While some of the charges preceded Sheriff Israel’s command at least 40 occurred on his watch.
On July 3rd investigative reporter Laura Loomer revealed that according to her “high-level” source within the Sheriff’s Office,
“Sheriff Israel is being removed from office for criminal issues, not malfeasance, following an investigation conducted by the office of Florida Governor Rick Scott. The source exclusively revealed to Big League Politics that Sheriff Israel is also allegedly being investigated by the IRS.”
Whatever charges are leveled against Scott Israel will be fine with the people as long as he is removed and someone interested in protecting our children, and not putting their gun control agenda ahead of their safety, replaces him.
