Broward Sheriff Scott Israel, Who Permitted Nikolas Cruz to Commit Crime After Crime With No Paper Trail, and Who Did Not Take Action Against the Coward of Broward for Sitting Out the Shooting, to be Removed by Gov. DeSantis

Powers Boothe says, "Well, Bye-eh."


The two-term sheriff, the object of fierce criticism over BSO's handling of the Parkland massacre, told his top commanders that he will be removed from office by Gov. Ron DeSantis, sources have told the Miami Herald.

DeSantis, who was sworn in Tuesday morning, had not made a formal announcement of a possible suspension. Israel's discussions with staff about his ouster was first reported by Miami New Times.

...

But Jeff Bell, BSO's union chief, said Israel told his staff on Monday that his ouster was inevitable.

"We know that he is telling everyone at the public safety building that he is going to be gone," said Bell, who was at DeSantis' swearing-in ceremony in Tallahassee on Tuesday.

Last week, Real Clear Investigations published a devastating indictment of Scott Israel.

Parents of children gunned down in the Parkland school shooting in Florida last year have never understood two actions taken by Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel: his refusal to fire a campus-based deputy who failed to enter the school during the rampage that took 17 lives, and his continued defense of controversial Obama-era school policies that allowed the  accused shooter, Nikolas Cruz, to avoid arrest and a police record and thereby purchase the murder weapon.


Some now think they have found the answer in a single incident that occurred in 2014. A police report shows thatís when Israel's then-17-year-old son, Brett, was accused of participating in a sexual assault of a 14-year-old boy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas  High School.

The case was investigated by Scot Peterson -- the armed deputy who took cover while children and staff were shot last February. Using the Obama-era guidelines, Peterson's recommendation helped his boss's son receive just a three-day suspension.

"Everyone in this county is wondering why Peterson was allowed to retire so quickly and take his pension," said local attorney Alex Arreaza, who represents victims of the school tragedy. "Normally deputies  would not be allowed to retire under those circumstances, but in this case, Peterson was allowed to. This report gives a plausible reason," he said.

According to the four-page report filed by Peterson, the victim, who was a freshman at the time, alleged that Israel, then the school's starting quarterback, held him  down while another senior kicked him, grabbed his genitals and rammed a  baseball bat between his buttocks, simulating rape.

People familiar with the case say Peterson could have referred Israel for felony charges, but reduced the crime to "simple  battery," making him eligible for a leniency program requiring no arrest. "The school district's disciplinary matrix requires no law  enforcement action required regarding the incident," the deputy wrote.

"A child was sexually assaulted and Peterson reduced the charges to fit a matrix and report it as information. This allowed the  deputy to put it away and not do anything," said Arreaza, who is suing both Israel and Peterson on behalf of Anthony Borges, a  Stoneman Douglas student who survived the massacre, despite being shot five times.

But the NeverTrumpers tell us that it's Vulgar Dirty Populism to ever suspect our Civil Servant Professionals of ever acting unprofessionally, out of bias, or out of simple self-interest.

See, they're the Sophisticated Ones who believe that anyone with a gun and a badge is a White Hat incapable of malfeasance.

70 Deputy Peterson wasn't at that high school to be a law enforcement officer, he was there to be a "fixer." I've read other reports that indicate that the school district and Broward Co. S.O. had essentially conspired to under-report juvenile crime. Fewer arrests means that the misunderstood yoots have mended their ways (Yay!!?).

In that kind of environment, when things went pear-shaped, it's no wonder that Peterson and the rest of the Broward's Cowards crapped their pants and hid. May all of those worthless fkers burn in Hell.

Well, I mean think about it -- you're an armed adult outside a building where kids are being killed and you just ... stand there behind your car.

I get a person freezing up in a moment of panic. That can happen to any of us. It would be shameful, but it happens.

But it was a whole group of cops who didn't seem to freeze, they seemed to make a conscious effort to avoid the gunshots, even though they knew every shot was likely another kid getting killed.

I really can't put myself in that headspace.

102 Politically cynical as it is to say, I don't think you can leave anyone in Florida to their own devices. Israel and the people of Broward County may deserve each other, but as the elections just proved, those cesspools also have too much of an impact on the rest of the state and therefore nation. They have to be watched, and if you get an opportunity to cut out the rot, do it. Maybe it will make the rest of the thugs think twice about just how much corruption and "fixing" they can get away with.

I've read the report, too. It is shocking how ALL of Broward Co. S.O. on the scene totally screwed the pooch. The doctrine on the appropriate LEO response to an active shooter has been established for about 20 years. The excuse, "We didn't know what to do" is self-serving bull$h!t from a bunch of cowards.

1st officers to go inside AND later apprehend Cruz were from Coral Springs P.D. I've read that relationships between CSPD and BCSO were a might frosty in the immediate aftermath of that fiasco.

Usually, Sheriffs are for (1) the unincorporated rural areas and (2) the county courts.

I read their earlier book "Generations: The History Of America's Future" (1990). They projected a "Crisis of 2020", based upon a roughly 80 odd year cycle of:
1. Awakening Era (1960's and 1970's)
2. Inner Driven Era (1980's to now)
3. Crisis Era (I thought 09/11 would have caused one, but evidently not, last one was arguably 1930's-1945)

Not at all. Most cops I know try and do the best job they can. The problem is law enforcement in general.
I want my police/sheriff to go after real criminals, not sit in our schools, sit at DUI roadblocks or harassing hard working citizens for money and fun. But fighting real crime is hard work and someone may get hurt.

184 @100 But it was a whole group of cops who didn't seem to freeze, they seemed to make a conscious effort to avoid the gunshots, even though they knew every shot was likely another kid getting killed.

----------------------

IIRC, the county dispatch was explicitly instructing them to stay outside of the school. I *think* that might have been at least partly under Peterson's direction, though I don't recall for certain.

So basically, as the deputies arrived, they were ordered to form a perimeter around the school and await further instructions before going inside.

I don't disagree, but that starts with the chiefs, mayors etc. The average cop has to do what they are told to by their bosses like anyone or a soldier by command. Are there cops that are douchebags that abuse or over use their power? Hell yes! I have a cousin who is a cop and has zero business IMHO being a cop. I know a couple others who are good guys doing a shitty dangerous job. But there's kind of a meme here lately that everyone gives cops a pass because gun/badge/goodguy. I call bullshit on that. Like any profession there's good and bad and none of them get passes.

If any of the above (including the minors) were conservative or Republican their images would have been splashed all over the Internet and every detail of their lives exposed.

This is how you get a dictatorship, people losing faith in politicians, judiciary and bureaucrats. With nothing left to lose such people turn to or vote for somebody who promises them change.

General Franco was uniformly derided by all yet the Spanish people respected him. Many years ago I worked with a woman who lived in Spain during Franco's time and she spoke well of him, that he was fair. She said her parents appreciated peace and prosperity after the leftist chaos.

I have a much bigger beef with the City gubmint, what with traffic ticket drones and "Code Enforcement" thugs tooling around in their little electric cars collecting revenue for not shoveling your front walk in a timely manner, or being five minutes late in a timed parking spot. Hate those little fookers.

If I was walking by a school, and heard shots ring out, I'd walk/run over and check it out. If it turned out to be some kind of sustained fire, I'd run toward it with a weapon drawn.

If someone was walking with me, and told me to hold back, I'd only figure it was because they were loading up so they can flank me, or wanting me to run in front so they can take cover, because they're unarmed.

Not that I should stand down.

210 I just don't get how long this took - how come he wasn't fired a week after the shooting, and along with the coward of broward deputy? hell, how come he didn't resign in disgrace?

And seriously - these Obama-era rules significantly increased the danger to kids by under reporting dangerous activities by students. It is all in response to minority parents who feel their kids are being singled out for punishment by the system. If that is true (and I'm doubtful), the consequence of reduced standards is terrible school shootings by others able to slip the system.

Why do cops have unions? Professional organizations where they can share the tricks of the trade and concerns; oh, sure, no problem. But unions?

The sooner people figure out that the police CANNOT protect anyone, and people stop farming out their responsibilities to government, the better off we will be as a nation. I don't care if they wear guns and badges and blue uniforms, a cop is still Sir Isaac Newton's bitch (as are we all).

That's not to slam the police, that's the reality. Look out for your OWN safety. America is better off with a more heavily armed population that takes that seriously, and if that's the case, soon we can have fewer police officers.
