On Thursday afternoon, the Broward Country Sheriff’s Office of Parkland, Florida voted that 534 out of 628 deputies have ‘no confidence’ in head Sheriff Scott Israel. This comes after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre, the negligence of Israel and receiving more than 45 calls about shooter Nikolas Cruz.
President of the Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputies Association Jeff Bell said the union’s “members have displayed great courage to come out and vote under threat of retaliation and reprisal from the sheriff.”
After Israel praised his ‘amazing leadership’ with an interview on Jake Tapper’s show, he is now having his job questioned from the union representing his deputies. The Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputies Association has stated that they are going to Florida Governor Rick Scott to remove Scott Israel.
