Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel Reflects on Florida School Shooting

Broward County Scott Israel on the Florida School Shooting

As facts began to show that local law enforcement ignored many red flags about Nikolas Cruz (including 36 police contacts about him) and Broward County did nothing before the atrocity, Sheriff Israel sought to deflect responsibility. Sheriff Israel had no qualms about throwing the School Resource Officer under the bus for not engaging and killing  the shooter.  But as hard questions about the performance of his office were raised, Sheriff Israel refused to take responsibility.

Sheriff Israel's strident face saving, however,  may well have inhibited the seemingly bullet proof push for stringent gun control measures imposed in reaction to the Stoneman Douglass High School shooting.
