Broward County Deputies Schedule No-Confidence Vote For Sheriff Scott Israel

Sheriff Scott Israel, who refused calls to resign after complaints about the way the Parkland school shooting was handled, has now received a vote of no confidence from the Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputies Association. The Daily Caller reports that The union 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.” The events leading up to the shooting itself and how Nikolas Cruz`s warning signs were ignored are disturbing enough on their own. They seem to start with the Obama era “Promise Act” which financially rewarded schools for keeping students out of the “school-to-prison pipeline”. This led to numerous instances of students and young people being allowed to commit crimes with no real legal repercussions. It`s also reported that this is why Trayvon Martin was never disciplined for his criminal behavior leading up to his death. Read more about that here. After the Parkland shooting, Marco Rubio spoke on the senate floor about the need to make changes to the Promise Act
