Florida Gov Suspends Sheriff Over Parkland Response

Florida Gov Suspends Sheriff Over Parkland Response

Israel's replacement, former Coral Springs Police Sgt. Gregory Tony, will be presented at the event, a source said.

Israel had faced criticism over BSO's response to the Parkland shooting, the shooting at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, as well as the response to an inmate who escaped from a Broward County courthouse in 2016, leading to an nearly weeklong manhunt.

"I have been in the community for a long time and one of the things I've learned is that BSO is a great organization if the not the finest we have in South Florida", he said.

Seventeen people were killed in the Parkland school shooting because Broward County deputies failed to do their jobs. He backed off later in the campaign, saying only that he would hold officeholders accountable.

The previous Governor, multi-millionaire Rick Scott, got rid of the state jet as a cost-cutting move and traveled the state in his private plane.

Israel said that any deputies who are found to have acted inappropriately or failed to act would be dealt with.

Broward County Sheriff's Office training on active shooters was inadequate, according to the report, which recommended arming teachers and spending more on school security and mental health to prevent similar mass shootings. Violent crime went down, and he easily won re-election in 2016 to oversee the county's 2,800 deputies.

DeSantis cited Israel's "incompetence" and said he "demonstrated a pattern of poor leadership" after the Fort Lauderdale International Airport shooting in 2017 and the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on February 14, 2018.

Under Florida law, DeSantis has the right to suspend election officials accused of "criminal activity, misfeasance, incompetence or neglect of duty", according to ABC News. After being notified, the Senate then asks the suspended official whether they plan to resign or want to request a hearing.

He also addressed those who may not support the Governor's decision, the voters who chose Scott Israel.

The attorney declined to say whether Israel can collect a pension for his years as sheriff. "The difference? I spoke out about gun violence".

Jeff Bell, the president of the Broward Sheriff's Office Deputies Association, said the Sheriff failed to focus on training, among other criticisms.

"I don't regret anything to do with that vote because based on everything I understand about the law, understanding the realities, if we didn't renew the amount of money, we could have lost that was allocated", said Tucker.

"For now, it's on to court", he said.

Nikolas Cruz has confessed to carrying out the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, his former school, according to court documents.

Israel was criticized for touting his "amazing leadership" during a CNN interview in the days after the shooting.
