Lawmaker Calls On Immediate Removal Of Cowardly FL Sheriff

The level of failure this sheriff was responsible for in response to the Parkland, FL high school shooting by reported killer Nikolas Cruz is nothing short of embarrassing for all of law enforcement — considering he runs one of America’s largest departments.

So it’s no surprise that lawmakers are now calling on FL Gov. Rick Scott to remove this sheriff from his post.

Fox 2 Now reports:

A Florida state representative is calling on Gov. Rick Scott to remove Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel from his post “for neglect of duty and incompetence” during the high school massacre.

“An investigation into the incomprehensible inaction of these deputies by Sheriff Israel will do nothing to bring back the 17 victims,” Bill Hager said in a letter to the governor.

“The Sheriff was or should have been aware of the threat Cruz presented to his community and chose to ignore it.”

His call came after Marjory Stoneman Douglas’ armed school resource officer, Deputy Scot Peterson, resigned Thursday after he was suspended amid accusations he did nothing to stop the massacre.

Israel says Peterson never went into building where shooter was firing at students, instead taking a position outside.

In a letter of response to the governor, Israel said he was proud of the work that many of his deputies and other agencies did the day of the shooting and that he was appalled by Hager’s “need to engage in disingenuous political grandstanding, perhaps in the hope he will garner some headlines, at the expense of the truth.”

He also said that Hager’s letter “was riddled with factual errors, unsupported gossip, and falsehoods.”
