You really have to marvel at the insulting tone Broward Sheriff Scott Israel shows here. He was more than happy to bash the NRA while he was on CNN but he refuses to take responsibility when it comes to the failures of his own department.
The Daily Caller has more details on this:
Sheriff Israel To Local Reporter On His Deputy’s Failure: ‘That’s Not My Responsibility’
Embattled Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel told a local NBC station on Sunday that the failure of his resource officer, who was armed and on site during the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, is “not my responsibility.”
“As I said, I’m the Sheriff, my name’s on the door,” Israel said. “The people responsible are the ones who took the calls and didn’t follow up on them, as it was with the FBI, as it was with any person.”
“Leaders are responsible for the agency, but leaders are not responsible for a person,” Israel told the station. “I gave him a gun. I gave him a badge. I gave him the training. If he didn’t have the heart to go in, that’s not my responsibility.”
