Sheriff Israel should resign post haste

Sheriff Israel

Over the last week, I’ve been having a bit of a tough time Lupus-wise. And it’s hard not to get all kinds of discouraged.

Last night, as I was feeling particularly sorry for myself, I went on the Internet and discovered that the “school resource officer” assigned to protect the students at Stoneman Douglas High School didn’t do his job.

Instead of entering the school and engaging the suspect, he stayed outside while children inside were being slaughtered.

And suddenly I felt like a creep for feeling sorry for myself.

I imagined the families of those killed and the anguish they’ve experienced over the last week.

How must they feel when each new revelation of the flagrant malpractice of the Broward County Sheriff’s department is revealed?

If we’re furious over this latest bit of news, just imagine how the families of the dead must feel right now.

And every time I think of that arrogant Sheriff Israel sitting on that stage during CNN’s show trial pointing an accusing finger at Dana Loesch and the NRA … it infuriates me all the more.

When Sheriff Israel told reporters that this deputy failed to engage the murderer – or even enter the freaking building – he had the unmitigated gall to say that he was “devastated. Sick to my stomach. There are no words.”

And yet the night before, he sat on that stage riling up the crowd and implicating Dana Loesch and the NRA in this mass murder.

What a despicable man.

In fact, he was so proud of his sham performance, he sent out this shameless and disgusting tweet afterward:

How dare Sheriff Israel sit there as if his hands were clean?

And while Sheriff Israel’s deputy cowered outside…

Yes, so horrific, Jake, that you couldn’t be bothered to challenge Sheriff Israel who sat on stage with you attacking Dana Loesch.

So spare me your outrage.

Cardillo is right.

Sheriff Israel should resign post haste.

Not only did he fail to protect these children; he then chose to politicize their deaths to attack a civil rights organization that had nothing to do with the tragedy.

But the truth is, this isn’t just incompetence.

Too many red flags either ignored or downplayed led to the deaths of seventeen people. And what’s worse, they were ignored on purpose.

As Sundance over at The Conservative Treehouse points out, this wasn’t a case of mistakes being made or the Sheriff missing warning signs. It is a direct result of policy.

It is important to understand the policy here. Broward County law enforcement (Sheriff Israel), in conjunction with Broward County School Officials (Superintendent Runcie and School Board), have a standing policy to ignore any criminal engagement with High School students.

When the police are hiding current, actual and ongoing unlawful conduct as a matter of standard procedure on a regular basis, what do we expect the police would do with reports of potential unlawful conduct? Of course they would ignore them.

And the fact that this Sheriff knew all that when he sat on that stage Wednesday night riling up the crowd to attack Dana Loesch is nothing short of contemptable.

My guess is that Sheriff Israel is using this deputy as a scapegoat – maybe in hopes that nobody look any deeper into this craven policy to ignore criminal behavior in Broward County schools.

Don’t get me wrong. This “school resource officer” should be held accountable.

But the truth is, so should Sheriff Scott Israel.

And so too should Broward County Superintendent Robert Runcie.

    so much for the “putting their lives on the line , every day” crap. Heroes , my ass. To think of all the benefits they get, pension and health care for life after working for 20 years. That leaves me “devastated. Sick to my stomach. There are no words.”

    The people living in these Progressive ghettos like Broward will get the quality of first responders that they have voted for. Scott Israel won 72% of the vote to his Republican opponent’s 27%.

    The children are innocent victims of the choices of their parents. Primitive, Demonic cults like Progressivism and Liberalism always demand and promote child sacrifice. Murdered children float in the wake of such Evil.

    I spent some time in uniform decades ago. Many of my fellow Jarheads when leaving the Corps became Cops. Many in uniform or in the “service of protecting Americans” are leftists; and are not trying to protect ALL Americans (only “The Resistance”). Naming Names: Bob Mueller* (a Stalinist -therefore bad – exJarhead);Sheriff Scott Israel, another Stalinist who never was in the military, still bad – as he clearly proved “beyond a reasonable doubt” the last 2 weeks; James Comes, another Stalinist, former #2 in the “Justice” Dept; later FBI Director.

    * both of the Stalinists were appointed to top level “Crime fighting” positions by the same leftist President, named George. Bob to head FBI in ’01; Jimmy to be #2 at DOJ in ’03.

    This is also proof positive that there are a lot of leftist progressives in the GOP! Including some former GOP Presidents!

    Your timer again got me. OK I am slow; but gee!

      I don’t have an auto refresh on the website. So it isn’t my timer. I do manually clear cache on occasion — maybe three or four times a day depending on traffic.

    I have Sotch ancestors. My Clan name in Gaelic means “stony place’ My wife (part Mac Craken) says in my case it is hard head. I admit to being stubborn. Do I will keep posting; and when timed out -reposting.
    I have always taken “Death before Dishonor” as myway of life. To quote an old Scotch folk song thath Johnny Cash sold a million of 50 years ago -“Y;ou can march me up to the Gates of Hell – but I wont back down!”!

    The more info that comes out about the Broward’s Sheriff’s Office, the worse both they and CNN look. This is clearly a failure of government on many levels, but mainly local.

      Operation Backfire. Take it to the bank.

    Dianny I sincerely hope you feel better.

    Someone in Broward needs to start a recall petition.

    I’ve been saying this all day – Gov. Scott should have removed him this morning instead of capitulating to leftist demands.

    • February 24, 2018 at 2:31 pm

      Elected office. Unfortunately cant be fired.

    Great irony….even CNN and other leftist organizations are offended and commenting because not just one but four cops refused to engage the shooter with their PISTOLS….golly shucks!!…They are saying guns are good and the only way to stop bad guys even in gun free schools??….uhh….yes…but I’m sure they do not even grasp the irony of their hypocrisy…..even a blind pig can find an apple….and maybe even libs can occasionally find common sense truths ??

    My son is a deputy and would have done is job that day at the school. Makes my stomach turn over every time I look at that Sheriff on TV. He and the 3 other duties that could have made a difference should all finally do the right thing and retire. G.O.O.D.B.Y.E……………!!!!! !!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
