Florida sheriff suspended after criticism over school shooting

Newly-elected governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, has suspended Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel from his post due to his response to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting past year that killed 17 people.

Seventeen students and educators were killed on February 14 at the high school, after which the Broward County Sheriff Department's response that day hasbeen called into question.

Tony, 40, of Boca Raton, spent 12 years at the Coral Springs Police Department, where he served in a variety of roles, including five years on department's SWAT team, as well as positions in narcotics investigation, street intelligence and burglary investigation, according to the Sun Sentinel newspaper.

Israel said DeSantis vowed to remove him as sheriff when he was campaigning for governor.

A recent 458-page report by the state panel investigating the massacre concluded that the Broward Sheriff Department failed to protect the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Israel had created the department's active-shooter policy which obviously let the community down. "It is my intention to embark on this enormous task to restore the confidence of families and residents of Broward County toward the Broward Sheriff's Office, which also requires that I fix the problems that exist. They were threatened that they were going to be killed", Loesch told Israel.

"These incidents demonstrate Sheriff Israel's repeated incompetence and neglect of duty".

Moments later, family members of those who died at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School took center stage. Deputies also received two calls about suspect Nikolas Cruz in the months before the massacre saying he had amassed an arsenal and was a potential school shooter, but took no action.

Kaplan said he had advised Israel only to make a statement and to answer no questions. He is the county's first black sheriff, and he was reportedly recommended by the father of a Parkland victim. Rick Scott asking him to suspend the sheriff for what they called his "incompetence and neglect of duty".

He was joined on Friday by some parents of slain students at the high school who supported his move.

In response, Israel told the commission that he didn't want deputies entering into "suicide missions", according to the Associated Press.

Israel said then he would not resign.

You know the Stoneman Douglas Commission when they were talking to deputies they learned from these deputies that the deputies could not remember the last time that they had active shooter training or what kind of training it was.

Israel, 62, was elected sheriff in 2012 after a long career in law enforcement. When asked about removing Runcie, DeSantis explained that he wasn't sure if he had the authority to suspend a superintendent hired by a county school board, rather than one who was directly elected.
