Yeah, it bothers me that he didn't rush in and stop what happened.
That doesn't mean his previous 19 years plus of law enforcement should be negated simply because we are pissed off at him for a one day failure.

I'm guessing Hairy Jello, Manitou and cnredd are like me. As in none of us ever became law enforcement officers even though we could have.
I think most cops are over paid for what they do. Only 20 years and you get a 8,700 a month pension? In 20 years, was his life ever in danger? Government employees across the board get paid too much. It used to be a livable wage for cops, firemen, and government workers, good benefits, and a livable pension. Now they make double what most people make, and get a huge pension, after 20 short years.

And those police who feel sanctified by the baboons' ruling are the same rambotitos who cheer for the gun control imbeciles, I'll bet.

Soon, again, the old Slick Willie chant of "Let's make our streets safe for our police" will ring out loud and clear.

I think how much they get paid has very little to do with anything. It's the performance of duty that is in question here.

If you promise to put your life on the line for your neighbors, what they pay you has nothing to do with the trust involved. What price is your life?

There is no answer to that question.

Do what you promised. Or quit.

Thank fuqing God. Israel is a pos who has zero leadership skills nor takes accountability for anything.

Breaking: Broward County Sheriff finally facing consequences from failed response to Parkland massacre

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel told his staff that he is being removed from his office nearly two years after the failed response to the Parkland massacre that resulted in 17 deaths.

Israel has been criticized for what many saw as a failed response from the Broward County Sheriff's Department, just one of the first responders on the scene at Marjory Stoneman Douglass High School.

The Miami Herald says Israel told his top commanders he is being removed by Gov. Ron DeSantis, but there has been no official statement yet.

"We know that he is telling everyone at the public safety building that he is going to be gone," said Broward Sheriff's Office union chief Jeff Bell.

Bell would not say who the union would back for a replacement.

"What I will say is we want someone who will remove politics out of police work," he added, "and commit to protecting the citizens and our children in the schools."

A report from the state panel investigating the massacre placed blame on the response from Broward County Sheriffs, citing lack of training that kept officers from entering the school and confronting the killer to prevent more deaths.

In February 2018 when CNN's Jake Tapper took Israel to task for the failures of his department, he rejected any responsibility and instead touted his "amazing leadership," to Tapper's surprise.

"Are you really not taking any responsibility for the multiple red flags that were brought to the attention of the Broward Sheriff's Office about this shooter before the incident," asked Tapper, "whether it was people near him, close to him calling the police?"

"Jake, I can only take responsibility for what I knew about," Israel responded. "I exercised my due diligence. I have given amazing leadership to this agency."

"Amazing leadership?" asked Tapper incredulously.

"Yes, Jake," confirmed Israel.
