When Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel
Was Accused of Corruption, He Responded:
´Lions Don´t Care About the Opinions of Sheep´

Reason, by Robby Soave

Original Article

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel—the man whose agency failed to prevent the Parkland massacre despite having received a tip last November that Nikolas Cruz was plotting a mass shooting—has been accused of public corruption. Two years ago, the Sun Sentinel reported that Israel was rewarding top political supporters by giving them and their family members cushy jobs doing public relations and community outreach for the Broward County Sheriff´s Office. One such position, outreach manager, paid out a salary of $78,489. The person who got that job was the husband of Israel´s campaign manager. Israel had been a Republican but ran

Sounds like his career is about to go down the toilet especially now that it has been reported that three other deputies hid behind their cars while the shooting was going on.

This wretch is some piece of work. To say what I really feel about him would probably get me banned from this site for ten lifetimes.
Folks, THIS is exactly what happens when you let politics infect a law-enforcement agency, and why elections for sheriff are so important. Ignore the flashy; look for the guy/girl who has the mettle to make the tough (and maybe unpopular) decisions that are often necessary to save lives.
"Sheepdog", #2? More like a Bichon Frise.

With that attitude it´s no surprise that it leads to the slaughter of the lambs. But then Leftists only care about the sheep and the lambs (whether outside the womb or still unborn) only as far as they can use them to their political advantage.

Israel went to the CNN Town Hall meeting knowing that the Deputy did not respond to the school shooting didn´t say a word. Also the police were well aware of Cruz but did nothing. The sheriff liked taking selfies with Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton this is a snowflake sheriff. The police from the next town are the ones who ran into the crime scene, bet they were Republicans.

I was quite angered by the articles yesterday concerning the deputy officer that quit. Also angered by some of the remarks here on this website. He is being painted as a wimp and I am tired by those remarks.

How much training have any of these personnel received for domestic violence and terrorism? After all, isn´t that why he is stationed as an armed guard.

During the eight years of Obama´s presidency, we watched the morale of police officers be demoralized. Many times I asked myself what the leadership was doing about training and support for these individuals going out to the streets. Some of these police officers have to watch situations where a criminal is caught only to have some lawyer undo all of their efforts.

Police unions and police leadership seemed to be backing Obama and I called bogus on them. Officers need the support of leadership and the union if necessary. Of course, leadership and unions seem to be Democrat controlled. Obvious problem. Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel is also the problem.

John 10: 11 I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. 12 He who is a hired hand and not a shepherd, who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees, and the wolf snatches them and scatters them. 13 He flees because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep. 14 I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, 15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep. (ESV)

And still 17 innocent people are buried. Israel played a grotesque game of politics and that might explain why some things happened. PC thought, hesitance to be controversial, constantly thinking of himself rather than the community. Democrats never go out of their little "Me!" box and that might have a lot to do with how Israel and his "Men" reacted.

Something tells me that the liberal Democrats and their media minions who have been shooting at the NRA have been firing at the wrong target, and should have been aiming at this political Sheriff and his likely use of Obama era ineffective non-enforcement policies when it comes to high school students. As for the NRA the only interaction they have with high schools and their students is to offer them free firearms safety training.

When a law enforcement agency is essentially warned a total of 39 times that an individual is dangerous and unstable, including intending to perpetrate mass murder, by members his family and the general public, or through direct interaction with the person after complaints were made against him, and he is still out on the street without any competent mental health screening, and able to purchase a firearm, something is wrong!

Remember it is the sheriff’s direct responsibility to ensure that his officers are property trained, are competent, and are ready to make an effective law enforcement response to any incident that occurs.

Of course as usual the liberals and their minions will never admit the true facts and will go on deflecting blame, as thats the only way they can hope to maintain their political power that they crave more then anything else.

https://www.browardprevention.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/Fully-Executed-Collaborative-Agreement.pdf

The deal is that Broward gets federal funds for reducing the rate of arrests of students.

To get those funds Broward simply changed the way they enforce the law. Voila, the arrest record dropped. They got more money.

To keep getting more money they revised the standards for enforcement to something like ~ MURDER or DISMEMBERMENT ~ then they´ll go enforce the law.

For the Deputies to enter the building while shots were ringing out would have violated the DEAL and they´d lose federal funds.

I think Donald Trump would like to have Judge Sessions take a look at this widespread FRAUD AGAINST THE USA.... ~ oh ~ and the massive civil rights violations against the children in those schools.

#9 - for the record, there were four officers on the school grounds during the shooting.

Video circulating in various news sites confirm this.

Not one officer attempted to enter the school during the shooting.

Question is: was a ´stand down´ order given?

It´s easy for us to split hairs in what the officers should or shouldn´t have done. One thing is clear - NO ONE did anything to stop this massacre - beginning with the Sheriffs office, or the FBI.

#9, when people are being slaughtered, the armed officer is the back up.

That is why he was given the badge and gun. When the time for action came, he chose to either follow a ridiculous protocol rendered moot by circumstances or chose to save his own bacon (no pun intended.)

There are seventeen people who wish they had his gun.

Another story linked in this article states that one of Sheriff Israel’s programs has deputies, as well as himself, living rent-free in mobile homes on the grounds of 43 schools. They were to provide 24-hour security. An audit showed the officers failed to report to alarms 73% of the time. One deputy even sub-let his mobile home to non-officers. Many officers failed to log their activities. The auditor called the program worthless and embarrassing. Israel defended the program, saying the officers would “lose their livelihood” if it were cancelled.

Please pardon the second post, but some things said here need a response. I and other officers I´ve discussed the event with are incensed that the SRO did not immediately charge to the sound of the gunfire and take that killer out. The additional info that there were FOUR BCSO deputies outside during the massacre is incomprehensible to us. Officers from Coral Springs reported that when they went in, the BCSO deputies did not go in with them. We are outraged at the failure of LE at the local and federal level to prevent or shorten this attack. To condemn this massive failure of law enforcement is not offensive to us at all. We strongly condemn it as well. The blue line I stand on has NO place for those who failed to protect these innocent kids and teachers at school.

Everybody is entitled to an opinion, I like #10 and #27. Training be damned, it´s basic human decency to help somebody in trouble when you have the means, like the swimmer who dives into a lake to save a drowning person.

It took real lions to just sit there while children were being slaughtered. I couldn´t imagine standing outside while the shooting and the screaming was going on. What kind of training did Cruz have? Half of those kids could have been saved. Not only is the deputy who quit seeing the end of his career, the sheriff is also finished. If the deputy thought he was doing the right thing, why did he quit? Why is his home under armed guard?

The office of sheriff in the counties of Florida is not what most folks think of when expecting a law enforcement officer. Florida Sheriffs are plenipotentiary. In Polk County where I lived for a while Grady Judd was elected Sheriff - meaning he served his constituents and if his constituents did not like his performance they could vote him out of office. Grady Judd, like all Florida County Sheriffs, is very political, harder to the right than I even expected in a place like Florida. But Judd did enforce the law. Broward County finds itself with a political Sheriff who ran on the left side of the spectrum and naturally probably does not have the respect or support of the vast majority of his rank and file. This will be made very clear shortly - even if the msm tries to cover it up.

From a previous article: Asked what Peterson should have done, Israel said: “Went in. Addressed the killer. Killed the killer.”

We now know it was four of his deputies that stood down while Coral Springs officers rushed in to save the students. This is beyond disgusting.

Face it, this Sheriff and his deputies were accomplices. Accomplices to murder.
And it´s Liberals like this, all across the country in law enforcement, who think that to serve and protect means to serve & protect themselves, not their community. They are a stain on the profession, and seriously weaken the bonds of trust with those they serve, dangerously so. As always, there´s nothing Liberals do better than make things worse.

The young perpetrator calmly exited the building, blending in with the crowd of students. He was spotted by an alert officer in a neighboring jurisdiction (Is it Coral Springs? I don´t know or care to know Florida)as matching the description of the shooter and arrested him on the street. It appears officers of the same jurisdiction were the first into the scene, bypassing the BCSO personnel.

It is my understanding that following Columbine most AmericanDepartments discarded"establish a perimeter and call for back-up". The current generally accepted policy as I understand it (IANALEO) is the first officer on scene immediately closes to engage the attacker. Secons are critical.d

To add to #38, Cruz also stopped at a fast food joint for a short while (after having just shot 17 people) and was then recognized on the sidewalk by police. A true sociopath who fell through all the cracks.

If he had just worn a jacket or a hat to alter his appearance he would likely have gotten away, for a while anyway.

In response to #9, as a retired police officer, We trained every year for "Active Shooter" scenarios in closed down schools with "shooters" inside.
After Columbine, we were trained that you don´t wait for back up, we trained to go immediately in and stop the threat.
At Virginie Tech, the shooter, chained doors so he had more time to shoot.
This deputy will have to live with the fact for the rest of his life that he failed the students and 17 died because of his inactions.

I mourn the deaths of those innocent children and the adults who stepped up to help them. But here´s the real tragedy. The left - media and politicians - are using this horrible incident to advance their anti-gun agenda. Blaming the 2d amendment and the NRA. They say the 2d amendment isn´t important because law enforcement will be there to protect us, therefore the citizens do not need guns for their own protection. Now we have the example of a politicized sheriff who would not have his people step forward to protect the children. We have the FBI who has also been politicized and I question whether we can count on them. I believe I am in a much better position to protect my own with my legally owned firearms. Mostly, though, I think I need my firearms to protect me and my family and neighbors from our own government. That´s what scares me as much as anything.

Watch this:
Now that cnn has whipped up the masses into blaming the gun instead of the inaction of the police, FBI, school district, etc., what will all these parents say about their lawsuits? Will they still sue the law enforcement agencies for their dereliction of duty, even though they have basically absolved them of blame by pointing all of their collective anger towards the gun? Have they painted themselves into a political corner? Or will they happily start to spread the blame where it belongs when they start looking for the deep pockets to go after?
Should be fun to watch...

Remember in November. We must dismantle the Democrat oppressive government apparatus, stating with the FBI and Department of Injustice. Not only the Coward County police are responsible but also the Teacher Unions that redesigned public schools in Broward and Miami-Dade to reduce disparities in the number of arrests of African-Americans and Hispanic students at school. This led to Trayvon Martin and now Nikolas Cruz going feral with no consequences.

No, Our trust has been betrayed. It is up to each man and woman of good conscience to decide whether to arm themselves and prepare to confront evil when it threatens to strike family, loved ones and the innocent.

In response to #42, and you can be certain that Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel trained his deputies in the fashion that you were?

When the liberal Democrats deflate 17 murders into an act of gun violence that needs a political solution, you should recognize that there is something very wrong, like they are angling for a political advantage.

Police are nothing more than revenue generators anymore. Just there to reinforce and fund the ongoing police state.
Don´t think so? How much good has the war on drugs accomplished? The TSA? The Border patrol? The list is endless. Every agency just plays lip service to these efforts while taking home a fat check for doing basically nothing. Arm yourself.

#9, when you put on the uniform and swear to "serve and protect", some of us silly civilians out here actually expect you to do your job.

Sorry if you are tired of hearing it, but I am tired of the Broward Cowards who stood by with guns in their hands while 17 kids were shot down, keeping themselves safe and sound outside behind their cars.

The sheriff and these officers need to be fired, it is that simple.

Find a new sheriff and new deputies who will ACTUALLY protect the citizens, especially in gun free zones where they are prohibited from protecting themselves.

Problem with these libs/progs is not that they are ignorant, nor that what they know isn´t so (h/t Pres. Reagan): it is their hubris, blatant arrogance, and open contempt for those they are sworn to protect.

Its just common sense, law enforcement officers take an oath to protect and serve, that is their sworn duty. When a perpetrator is inside a school shooting children all law enforcement officers at the scene have a sworn duty to confront the perpetrator and to take him out as quickly as possible and save the children´s lives at the risk of their own lives. All law enforcement officers know that from the day they took their oath of office.

There is something else in play in Broward County that has not yet become public, its possible that supervisors told those officers to hold their positions until the supervisors arrived on the scene, or since that political sheriff has been hobnobbing with Hillary Clinton, that the Sheriff´s Dept may have instituted Obama Administration inspired social justice based very liberal operating instructions regarding law enforcement interaction with schools and high school students, that would have changed established law enforcement practice, especially when dealing with minority students, and that may have barred law enforcement officers, other than designated school resource officers from entering the schools. That all should come out in the near future.

The Social Benefits of Fossil
Fuels Far Outweigh the Costs
Wall Street Journal, by Joseph L. Bast and Peter Ferrara    Original Article

As several cities continue their suit against oil companies, The People of the State of California v. BP, Judge William Alsup has boiled the case down to its pivotal question. In March he ordered the legal counsels of both parties to help him weigh “the large benefits that have flowed from the use of fossil fuels” against the possibility that such fuels may be causing global warming. We sent the judge, and posted online, a 24-page document that answers his question. The benefits of oil, coal and gas are rarely acknowledged by environmental activists, who seek to regulate and tax these

While the FBI was investigating Hillary Clinton´s secret server where she kept official emails out of the view of the authorities until her lawyers could scrub them, for some reason, agents never searched the Blackberries or other email devices belonging to her inner circle at the State Department. Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz and his team received a crazy response when they asked FBI agents on the Hillary Clinton email investigation why not. The agents´ primary excuse was to point to "the culture of mishandling classified information at the State Department which made the quantity of potential sources of evidence

Mount Everest, the high-altitude rubbish dump

Decades of commercial mountaineering have turned Mount Everest into the world´s highest rubbish dump as an increasing number of big-spending climbers pay little attention to the ugly footprint they leave behind. Fluorescent tents, discarded climbing equipment, empty gas canisters and even human excrement litter the well-trodden route to the summit of the 8,848-metre (29,029-foot) peak. "It is disgusting, an eyesore," Pemba Dorje Sherpa, who has summited Everest 18 times, told AFP. "The mountain is carrying tonnes of waste." As the number of climbers on the mountain has soared -- at least 600 people have scaled the world´s highest peak so far this year

How the Queen and Meghan Markle

It was an extraordinary sight—as the queen and Meghan Markle sat on chairs watching a performance by a group of schoolchildren on Thursday, Meghan leant over and whispered something in her grandmother-in-law’s ear, and the monarch chuckled. Her Majesty then made a canoeing action, in friendly imitation of the kids’ performance, and laughed again. The queen has a fairly simple policy on public emotion which is to not show it, ever, and this is not because she is some unthinking adherent to the principle of the stiff upper lip, but just because it makes life simpler, and avoids people being upset

Liza Minnelli quietly selling

Liza Minnelli is lucky no one bought her Andy Warhol collection two years ago — she’ll end up much richer by selling off the paintings one by one. A source in Switzerland reports one of Minnelli’s 22 Warhols — a silk-screen of her mother Judy Garland — was just sold by Larry Gagosian for $7 million to an unnamed buyer. It was one of three portraits of Judy in Liza’s collection, which also includes four portraits of herself and three of her father Hollywood director Vincente Minnelli. I reported two years ago that Liza was asking $40 million for the entire collection, trying

An Internet search for “Father’s Day 2018” brings up a top hit: “20 Last-Minute Father’s Day Gifts That Are Amazon Prime-Eligible.” Now, like most dads, I’m not one to complain about receiving gifts (especially when they involve a good weekend of fishing), but something is wrong when popular culture understands the obligations of Father’s Day as nothing more than a 30-minute phone call and shipping your dad something Amazon’s website said were “Dad’s Favorites.” Like so many other things in our culture today, the commercialization of this holiday obscures its true meaning.

It seems like a day doesn’t go by without some female high school teacher getting arrested for having sexual relations with an underage student. The story line is always the same. Ms. Hotpants either gets caught in the act or because her student paramour shares with the world the naked selfies that for some weird reason she just had to send to his cell phone. Invariably the teacher is quickly and unceremoniously condemned, fired from her job and arrested. This sequence of events always seemed appropriate. But, having had the benefit of reading the recent report by the Justice Department’s

The law is supposed to apply equally to all of us. But some of us seem to be more equal that others. In what appears to be a not-so-coincidental effort by the anti-Trump deep state to distract from the damning Department of Justice Inspector General’s report yesterday — shedding light on the FBI’s gross mishandling of the Clinton email investigation — New York’s attorney general dropped a headline-grabbing lawsuit against Donald Trump, his three eldest children and Trump foundation directors. The suit alleges a series of misdeeds by the Trump family in how they’ve operated its charitable foundation over the past

Nikki Haley is killing it at the United Nations

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley is just about killing it at the global body. In recent remarks to the General Assembly, Haley first condemned the anti-Israel faction of the bunch for using the global body for politics, not peace promotion. And then, dramatically enough, she brought to vote a U.S.-penned measure that explicitly faulted Hamas for violence at the Gaza border — a measure that was tacked on as an amendment to an anti-Israel resolution and that actually received the thumbs-up from the majority of the voting parties. Did you get that? It actually received a majority backing. This Haley amendment

Janique Walker knows the cost of a split second. Her younger brother, 17-year-old Charles Macklin, was killed while trying to steal a Jeep from a Chicago fire lieutenant on the West Side last August. The lieutenant had left the Jeep running, and Macklin jumped behind the wheel. The lieutenant ran in front of the Jeep and shouted, “Get out,” according to a police report. When Macklin began pulling away, the lieutenant drew his gun and fired through the open driver’s side window, hitting the teen in the chest. Macklin’s last words were, “Sorry, bro,” according to the police report. The teen died on the pavement. He did not have a gun on

The report, issued Thursday, shows that Hillary Clinton – like her husband, former President Bill Clinton – has gotten away with things most people could never do without being punished. The stark double standard substantiates the growing public distrust of an FBI gone rogue. Clearly, the Clintons believe there is one set of rules and laws for them, and a different set for everybody else. As the proud grandson of a career FBI agent, I’m frustrated to see the people in the FBI who we have entrusted with so much power failing to act properly, without taking political considerations into account. Never has the need for uninhibited oversight of a

Since the beginning of the year, reports have surfaced of hypodermic needles dotting the streets, piles of human feces and expanding shanty towns for the increasing homeless population -- and now tourists are noticing, SFGate reported.

Former first lady Laura Bush tore into the Trump administration for separating migrant families at the border, calling the “zero tolerance” policy “cruel” and “immoral.” Bush penned an op-ed for the Washington Post, which was published Sunday night as public outcry over the hundreds of children in detention centers intensified. “I live in a border state,” Bush wrote. “I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.” Bush’s commentary comes as more images and accounts from inside the detention centers have

The state of Illinois has approved $224 million to pay for street and transportation projects in Chicago´s South Side neighborhood around the Obama Presidential Center site, $199 million of which will fall directly on the shoulders of Illinois taxpayers. Gov. Bruce Rauner signed into law the legislature´s budget on June 4, which included $174 million for road work in and around Jackson Park — where the 235-foot-tall building would be located — and another $50 million to renovate an above-ground rail stop two miles away. “Bringing the Obama Presidential Center to Chicago took leadership and vision, and we are gratified that our

Christian leaders across the country have taken issue with Attorney General Jeff Session´s usage of the Bible as justification of his policy that is separating thousand of immigrant families at the border. Sessions cited Romans 13 to attempt to justify how separating families was ordained by God because ´orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves and protect the weak and lawful.´ For religious leaders who still weren´t pleased with his usage of scripture, he offered them to ´speak up strongly to urge anyone who would come here to apply lawfully, to wait their turn and not violate the law.´

Most of what happens inside Apple Park, the iPhone company´s stunning new headquarters, is top secret. But Apple CEO Tim Cook recently disclosed one new detail about the work environment: Everyone gets a standing desk. "We have given all of our employees, 100%, standing desks. If you can stand for a while, then sit, and so on and so forth, it´s much better for your lifestyle," Cook said in a recent interview with The Carlyle Group´s David Rubenstein published on Wednesday. He then encouraged the billionaire financier to stand with him — just like a prominent feature on the Apple Watch. Cook has previously cited

The White House called MSNBC´s Joe Scarborough´s comments comparing the actions of immigration law enforcement officers at US border crossings to those of Nazis ´appalling´ on Friday. Scarborough pointed out while hosting ´Morning Joe´ on Friday that federal agents at US borders have reportedly used tactics similar to those used by Nazi soldiers during World War II to separate Jewish families, in saying children are being taken to ´shower´ and never returning with them. ´This is the type of inflammatory and unacceptable rhetoric that puts a target on the backs of our great law enforcement,´ White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley

FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- An Indiana hospital for the Department of Veterans Affairs temporarily removed its military flags to put up an LGBT pride flag Tuesday. Some veterans in Fort Wayne, Indiana arrived at the VA hospital Tuesday morning and noticed all the military flags had been removed. On one of the flagpoles was a rainbow flag, in honor of LGBT pride month, WPTA in Fort Wayne reported. Some people in the area questioned the VA´s decision.

The president of Harvard´s teaching hospital got to thinking one day and decided there were too many portraits of white male doctors hung in a popular amphitheater. She bemoaned the horrible situation that people walking into the amphitheater didn´t feel like they "belonged." The problem cried out for a solution. So she moved several portraits of prominent white doctors in order to be more diverse and inclusive. Problem solved? Campus Reform: The hospital’s president, Dr. Betsy Nabel, told the Globe that moving the portraits is the right decision: “I have watched the faces of individuals as they have come into Bornstein.

Phil Mickelson´s 48th birthday took a stunning turn at the US Open on Saturday when he stopped a putt from rolling off the 13th green. Clearly at the end of his tether after a shocking run of bogeys in his third round, the much-decorated American embarrassed himself when another putt rolled past the hole. Instead of waiting to see where it finished, he stopped the ball with his putter and knocked it back whence it came. (Photos/Video) It meant an automatic two-shot penalty and he ended up with a 10 for the hole. ´That´s absolutely amazing, that´s Phil basically giving
