Shamed Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel has unfortunately dropped out of the headlines despite his abject incompetence and self-congratulation after the Parkland massacre.
But now he may finally receive his comeuppance.
Over the next several days, Israel is being subjected to a no-confidence vote from his deputies, which was confirmed by the president of the deputies’ union.
We’re not quite sure what might have prompted the vote.
Well, except maybe that he threw Deputy Scot Peterson, who failed to enter the school during the shooting — completely under the bus.
Oh, and there was the policy of not arresting juveniles along with the dozens of visits to the shooter’s home.
We could go on, but you get the picture.
Here’s more from Redstate…
Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel is facing a no-confidence vote from his own deputies for his actions in the wake of the Parkland school shooting that have “crushed morale through the agency,” as the Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputies Association described it.
The February 14th shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School left 17 students and teachers dead, and an additional 17 wounded. Israel has faced intense criticism for the dozens of visits to the shooter’s home that never resulted in an arrest, their policy of avoiding juvenile arrests even for serious and violent crimes, and the failure of his deputies to enter the school and engage the shooter.
Israel’s actions in the aftermath of the shooting have only raised the v0lume from his critics — his grandstanding attempts to demonize the NRA and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) at a CNN townhall, his scapegoating of his own deputies, and additional troubling reports about the shooter’s brother being arrested on campus and a BSO deputy getting caught sleeping while on duty that same day at Stoneman Douglas.
