Elder Patriot – Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel became a cause celebre following the Parkland shooting rampage that left 17 high school students dead and the same number injured. Israel’s willingness to assail the Second Amendment rights of Americans during a nationally televised “town hall” where the narrative was tightly controlled by CNN was widely applauded by the mainstream media.
We weren’t buying Israel’s gun-grabbing response that came following the carnage that was the result of his gross malfeasance or worse, the potential that he had deliberate intent to allow Cruz to carryout his rampage so as to initiate the necessary outcry to advance a politically motivated agenda.
Now we have company. The Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputies Association is accusing Israel of “many instances of suspected malfeasance, misfeasance, failure to maintain fiduciary responsibility by the sheriff, failure to properly investigate possible criminal conduct by members of his senior command staff and the lack of leadership that has crushed morale throughout the agency.”
Israel’s eagerness to capitalize on the deaths made him second only to David Hogg as the poster boys for disarming Americans.
But Israel can’t escape the truth about his complete lack of accountability for failing to prevent the shootings, the command decisions he made once the shooter began his rampage, and the narrative and timeline that never added up.
The sheriff’s refusal to release the video recordings from the school’s CCTV cameras only increased the belief that he is hiding his personal failings and the men under his command are sick of it.
There is something about the shooting stars of gun-grabbers like David Hogg and Scott Israel who never seem able to withstand the test of time once the bright lights of scrutiny are shone on them. The mainstream media can only prop up liars for so long before the truth comes out.
