As the nation reels from the atrocious mass killing of 17 lives, more and more evidence continues to emerge to highlight an entirely broken police department that failed to act in a time of need.
In researching the tenure of Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, one can find many questionable hiring decisions, prioritization issues, and unsavory partnerships. Residents of the county are rightly infuriated by the cowardice showcased by officers serving under Sheriff Israel, who reportedly failed even to attempt to stop the massacre on February 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. It reflected a police department that appeared unready and unwilling to fulfil its duties.
The police department's decision to enter into a partnership with a terrorist-linked organization is perhaps the most distinguishing marker that showcases Sheriff Israel's horrible lack of judgment, one that badly exposes his unfitness for the job.
