Desantis Replacing Sheriff Scott Israel Over Parkland

Scott Israel, seen here at a press conference in the aftermath of the February 2018 Parkland school shooting accused Governor Ron De Santis of having political motives

Governor DeSantis was forced to use the plane because former Governor Rick Scott sold the state air fleet and blocked lawmakers from buying a new plane a year ago.

"There was no wrongdoing on my part".

Effective immediately, I am officially suspending Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel for his repeated failures, incompetence and neglect of duty. They touted the sheriff's commitment to helping poor neighborhoods and improving diversity within the Sheriff's Office.

Israel, 62, was elected sheriff in 2012 after a long career in law enforcement.

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, who has refused to resign in the wake of the Parkland, Florida shooting almost a year ago, was suspended and replaced by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis Friday. - Gov. Ron DeSantis asked for their resignations, but some South Florida Water Management District board members are declining to step down.

Israel acknowledged the Parkland shooting victims in his rebuttal to the governor.

In response, Israel told the commission that he didn't want deputies entering into "suicide missions", according to the Associated Press.

Several responding Broward sheriff's deputies were either seen on camera or described as taking time to retrieve and put on ballistic vests as well as removing and replacing other equipment while shots were still being fired in the school, the report said.

According to Florida statute, the governor has the power to suspend the sheriff for actions such as "misfeasance" and "neglect of duty" and may fill the office by appointment for the period of suspension. He backed off later in the campaign, saying only that he would hold officeholders accountable. He said he was suspended only because his outspoken gun control stance angered the National Rifle Association.

When he won re-election in 2016, Israel captured more than 70 percent of the vote.

"He fails to listen to the people", Bell said of Israel, according to CNN. The former sheriff was out of uniform, dressed in a navy, pinstripe suit.

Kaplan said that they were still exploring avenues to challenge the suspension, which the governor issued at his own news conference in Fort Lauderdale about an hour before. "The governor promised as a candidate, well before he had any facts of the investigation, well before the commission even began their work, that he would remove me from office", he said.

Parkland families said they have high hopes for Tony. There, an exhausted Israel told anchor Jake Tapper: "I have given fantastic leadership to this agency". "I don't understand how you can sit there and claim awesome leadership".

A retired Coral Springs police sergeant will take the helm of the Broward Sheriff's Office.

The attorney declined to say whether Israel can collect a pension for his years as sheriff. He needed to reach eight years to be vested, the Sun Sentinel determined, but was in office about six.
