As anyone who reads this blog certainly knows, I am an avid supporter of Israel – i.e. the middle east nation.
But I am just as avidly opposed to another Israel – i.e. scott israel, the arrogant, incompetent sheriff of Broward Country, Florida.
For that reason it gives me great pleasure to report that he soon may be out of a job.
From Nic Rowan’s article at freebeacon.com:
Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel has told his top commanders that he expects newly sworn-in Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R.) to remove him from office because of his response to the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland last year.
DeSantis, who took office on Tuesday, has not made any formal announcement about a suspension, and one of Israel’s lawyers said that Israel was working in his office at the public safety building in Fort Lauderdale, the Miami Herald reported Tuesday.
But Jeff Bell, the Broward Sheriff Office’s union chief, said Israel told his top staff on Monday that he would definitely be ousted. Bell would not comment on a possible replacement.
I hope, for the safety of Broward County residents, this is true. The sooner the better. And I hope his donut deputies – the ones who stood by and allowed the carnage at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School to take place – are out just as fast.
