Sheriff Scott Israel probably should have been removed from office once it was known how he and his team handled the Parkland shooting. Instead, he went on CNN and tried to blame the NRA for the incident. Now, he may be on his way out.

Controversial Parkland Sheriff GONE Next Week!
Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel was quick to call for more gun control in the wake of the horrific school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Valentines Day. It became clear why; Israel needed to deflect attention away from all the errors his department had made before and during the shooting.
Not only had his police department received at least 45 calls relating to the perpetrator, Nikolas Cruz, an armed school resource officer from his department did nothing as the massacre unfolded…
According to Big League Politics, “high level sources within the Broward County Sheriff’s office exclusively revealed to Big League Politics that disgraced Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel is set to be removed from his position as Sheriff next week. 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 people of this community deserve better than him anyway. Here’s hoping they replace him with someone truly great.
