Disgraced Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel delivered a statement to the media responding to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’s decision to suspend him. According to Israel, he’s not looking at the business end of the Governor’s sharp stick due his abominable handling of the attack on Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Nope, Scotty is the real victim here.
Said the suspended lawman, “the NRA controls the governor’s actions,” and “there was no wrongdoing” on his part. Not sure how the NRA figures into Israel’s leadership style, which produced a department willing to hide in the bushes while children died, but the reality is the NRA was as responsible for his actions during the massacre as they were for his spiffy-looking appearance on CNN within hours of his complete failure to respond to the Parkland horror.
Scotty said "This was about politics, not about Parkland." In that case, politics dictates the Governor give an incompetent, cowardly, buck-passer the heave-ho.
