    Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, who was fired in 2018 after the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, is once again working for law enforcement, but in a lesser role this time around. Israel will monitor traffic through red light cameras and will appear in court if a person wishes to challenge their ticket, the Sun-Sentinel reported. He was the only candidate interviewed for the job out of three applicants and will receive a salary of $65,000. A spokesperson at the police department Israel was recently hired by told CBS Miami: He has been given a conditional offer subject to the...

    BROWARD COUNTY, FL –Back on Valentine’s Day in 2018, a lone gunman (whose name will not be mentioned in this article) entered onto the property of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and opened fire with a long gun, killing 17 students and faculty and wounding others. At the time of the shooting, Scott Israel was the Sheriff of Broward County. He was later removed by the Governor for many reasons involving this shooting, number one because no one really investigated the shooter who had been reported to authorities many times prior to the shooting. Recently, Democrat Scott Israel is attempting...

    Bawdy photos have emerged of a South Florida sheriff partying half-naked alongside topless women wearing pasties — images that surfaced this week as the lawman is running for re-election. Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony, who was appointed in January 2019, has accused his political opponent, former sheriff Scott Israel, of leaking the photos to keep him from winning the 2020 election, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported. The now-sheriff, who at the time was a sergeant at the Coral Springs Police Department, was seen in images at two events organized by a promoter for “erotic theme events, pool parties, strip and swing...

    The Florida Senate on Wednesday voted to permanently oust suspended Broward Sheriff Scott Israel over his officers' response to the mass shooting that killed 17 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in 2018. The GOP-controlled state Senate voted 25-15 in favor of Israel’s permanent removal. “I hope the outcome provides some measure of relief to the Parkland families that have been doggedly pursuing accountability,” Gov. Ron DeSantis, a Republican, said in a statement after the vote.

    Suspended Broward Sheriff Scott Israel shouldn’t get his job back, a key Florida Senate committee decided Monday, a powerful indication of the ultimate outcome. The vote was close, with nine senators voting in favor of Israel’s permanent removal and seven favoring his reappointment. Cheers immediately erupted from family members and supporters of the 17 people killed in the 2018 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre, who were at the committee when it convened at 10:30 a.m. through the vote at about 8:45 p.m. Israel, who also spent the day at the Senate Rules Committee, sat near the back of the...

    Suspended Broward Sheriff Scott Israel lost his fight Tuesday to have the Florida Supreme Court return him to duty. Now, in all likelihood, it’s up to the voters of Broward County to return him to office — if they want him back. The court ruled that Gov. Ron DeSantis had the constitutional authority to suspend Israel in January for his agency’s failure to adequately respond to mass shootings at Marjory Stoneman High School in Parkland and the Fort Lauderdale airport. The decision all but ends Israel’s attempt to get his job back before the 2020 election — the Republican-led Florida...

    Suspended Broward Sheriff Scott Israel lost his best chance of getting his job back before the 2020 election when a judge ruled Thursday that Gov. Ron DeSantis had every legal right to remove him from office earlier this year. Broward Circuit Judge David Haimes did not indicate whether he agreed with the governor, but he affirmed that DeSantis was legally justified when he replaced Israel with acting Sheriff Gregory Tony in January.

    As Cortney noted, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel has been suspended by Gov. Ron DeSantis. This was expected. Israel had told staff prior to this announcement that this would most likely happen.  And Gov. DeSantis made it official. Israel, who has been criticized for how his department responded to the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school last February, also took part in the CNN town hall event, where he slammed the National Rifle Association. The event was held days after the shooting. Now, with his suspension, Israel has blamed the NRA, and said this was all about politics.  "There was...

    Flanked by members of a local African-American faith community, a defiant Scott Israel defended himself against allegations of incompetence on Friday and made clear he would fight his suspension on any front necessary — whether before the Florida Senate or in state or federal court. Israel, 62, a two-term Democratic sheriff of Broward County, was suspended by Gov. Ron DeSantis three days after the new Republican governor was sworn into office. DeSantis cited a list of failures enumerated by a state panel that investigated BSO’s response to the Feb. 14, 2018, shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.

Attorney General Ashley Moody, Shane Strum, DeSantis' chief of staff and three other members of his executive staff were also on the plane.

    Gov. Ron DeSantis is expected Friday to suspend Broward Sheriff Scott Israel and replace him with a former Coral Springs police sergeant with a background in active-shooter training.

    Civil rights attorneys arrived on last Thursday and demanded to see the inmates. They were not the inmates personal attorneys of record. The attorneys wanted to know if the inmates had received their absentee ballots in the mail. As these attorneys were not the inmates’ attorneys of record, Sheriff Scott Israel should not have granted them access to the inmates. Protocol would have the attorneys sign into the jail, yet there is no record. The Deputy stated that the civil rights attorneys providedg the inmates with the narrative that they never received their absentee ballot. The liberal attorneys said the...

    Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Fla., joked about how somebody saving a drowning President Trump would be a "catastrophe" at the start of an event in Sunshine, Fla., on Sunday. In a video reported by the Daily Caller, Hastings said he first learned of the joke from Ari Silver, whose father is former Florida state legislator and rabbi Barry Silver. “Do you know the difference between a crisis and a catastrophe?” Hastings said, retelling the joke. "A crisis is if Donald Trump falls into the Potomac River and can’t swim,” Hastings said. A "catastrophe," he added, "is anybody saves his ass.'” Cheers...

    Whatever teen anti-gun celebrity David Hogg learned in high school, it apparently wasn’t the English language. It’s that, or he actually wants to increase the number of gun deaths in inner-city communities. Either way, the poster boy for the gun-grabbing left is showing all the world just how confused and ignorant he really is. In recent a Twitter exchange with a conservative commentator, Hogg let his ignorance slip with a colossally nonsensical argument for the left’s favorite economic policy: Raising the minimum wage.

    On Tuesday’s Andrea Mitchell Reports, two Florida politicians, a Republican and a Democrat, made back-to-back appearances to discuss gun control. Host Andrea Mitchell took a radically different tone with each interviewee – both of whom are seeking statewide elected office in 2018 – thus epitomizing MSNBC’s inescapable liberal bias. While speaking with Republican Florida State Representative Jay Fant, Mitchell assumed an adversarial role, grilling him on his recent vote against a measure to ban assault rifles. Throughout the brief interview, she argued that the Second Amendment was not absolute, citing the late Justice Scalia’s decision in the frequently-referenced District of...
