DeSantis Removes Broward County Sheriff From Office

Florida governor suspends Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel

‘Mechanical issues’ with DeSantis plane delay Sheriff Israel suspension announcement

"The suspension caps a almost year-long series of revelations that exposed the failure of Broward sheriff's deputies to run in to save children at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School".

A state commission investigating the massacre recently concluded Israel's changes to the department's active shooter policy may have contributed to some deputies' inaction during the school shooting.

DeSantis named Gregory Tony, a veteran of the police department in Coral Springs, Broward County, as Israel's replacement. - Gov. Ron DeSantis asked for their resignations, but some South Florida Water Management District board members are declining to step down.

Rick Scott dated February 24, 2018, he explained that Coral Springs Police Department officers were the first to enter the school because that department had "received he initial 911 call, and were dispatched to the scene knowing it was an active shooter incident, before the call was ever transferred to Regional Communication for dispatch for BSO".

Some Broward County sheriff's deputies held back too long as shots were fired at the school in the massacre, instead of rushing toward the gunfire, according to a 439-page report released last week by a state-appointed commission.

Steelers owner all but confirms team will part ways with Antonio Brown
Right now, the Steelers are about $28 million under the cap, but that only accounts for 38 players currently under contract. They are desperate for wide receiver help though, and Brown is the style of receiver 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan covets.

In April, the Broward Sheriff's Office Deputies Association gave Israel a vote of no-confidence.

"My daughter would have lived if somebody could have just given her one more second", said Fred Guttenberg, whose 14-year-old daughter, Jaime, was among the mass shooting victims.

Israel said that any deputies who are found to have acted inappropriately or failed to act would be dealt with.

A 15-member state commission that recently completed its initial report on the shooting said deputies also had about 20 contacts with Cruz as a juvenile - mostly over arguments with his now-deceased mother.

Israel said he intends to "vigorously fight this unjustified suspension", calling it the fulfillment of a political promise, and looks forward to returning to office soon.

Sheriff Israel inserted the word "may" in the BSO policy, and it is insufficient and fails to unequivocally convey the expectation that deputies are expected to immediately enter an active assailant scene where gunfire is active and to neutralize the threat.

"He has been one of the very few sheriffs whose had a strong presence in the black community", said Kelly Davis, a radio DJ known as Big Man Kelly.

According to the Miami New Times, Tony has extensive training in active shooter response.

Dave Vasquez, the governor's spokesman, said the flight crew had to divert the plane after encountering what he described as an unspecified mechanical issue.

Shortly after Israel's second term began, a man retrieved a handgun from his luggage at Fort Lauderdale's airport and opened fire, killing five. He criticized the draft, and the final version was less harsh - but numerous same communications problems that plagued the airport response repeated at Stoneman Douglas.
