The Broward County Sheriff couldn’t give a straight answer to this simple question

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel made a name for himself when he placed blame on the NRA for the Parkland shooting.

But new reports have revealed that multiple sheriff’s deputies failed to take down the shooter.

And when he was asked why they didn’t act, Israel was reduced to a stuttering mess.

Sheriff Israel became a darling of the anti-gun national media during CNN’s town hall after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School tragedy.


He was cheered loudly when he pointed fingers at NRA spokesman Dana Loesch.

But when it came time for him to face the music, Sheriff Israel wouldn’t take responsibility.

“I gave him a gun. I gave him a badge. I gave him the training. If he didn’t have the heart to go in, that’s not my responsibility.”




CNN thought they had the perfect person to gin up support for gun control – a law enforcement officer who sounded like a straight shooter.

But photos have surfaced of Sheriff Israel with failed presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.

And now he has revealed himself as little more than an anti-gun opportunist.

    If firearm manufacturers are responsible for crimes committed with guns manufactured by them, then why isn’t Sheriff Scott responsible for crimes not stopped by the guns he issued? And why didn’t the governor step in? And where was Sheriff Scott hiding out during the entire tragedy? Sitting behind his desk munching on Dunkin’ Donuts with coffee?

    I don’t want this guy to resign. I want him fired and humiliated.This guy should be made a example of what not to be in the law-enforcement. This guy is a total disgrace. Who in the hell put this guy in that position to start with. They should probably look into that guy cause he’s probably corrupt also.

  4. PTD says:

    If Sheriff Scott is correct, then he justifies the need for the Second Amendment of the US Constitution and the NRA because some governments (Broward County) in the US can’t protect it’s citizens from the deranged members of society who kill defenseless children and young adults

  5. I guess the American people expect a better answer to the question. Don’t know how you would know what response your deputy would give. He certainly didn’t do what he was hired AND expected to do in such a situation. However his response is UNACCEPTABLE to the majority of Americans and he needs to find a different line of work. I don’t think many, if any, of us could say with certainty, how we would respond. What did he think would be expected of someone carrying a weapon and asked to rescue school kids trapped by a “looney” with an AR-15 would expect. This falls squarely on the plate of our FBI, does it not?

      In that county, in fact, he did; there was a county policy entered into with the schools to give teen criminals a pass so the school and SO both would look good on paper for the low arrest rate. Miami-Dade to the south of Broward has the same deal with their schools. Seems they prevented EMS first responders from entering to render aid to the wounded as well.

  6. Rich Kenny says:

    And again, I say, “FIRE HIM, MY REAR END!” He (they) should be fired immediately with no further pensions, He (they) should then be arrested, tried and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law… for his lawless direlection of duty and standing in the way of his officers doing THEIR duty. If there were, indeed a “stand down” then the whole department should stand trial as well as the entities who requested it, All involved should be incarcerated, tried, convicted and mete out a sentence equal to the harm he caused…. the whole Department and any who coherest them in to the decision to “stand down”!!! The punishment should equal the crime No more and no less. When we get serious, they will start to understand. (hopefully)

  7. R. H. M. says:

    100% Responsible He and all Four of those Deputies should Charged with Negligent Homicide and Jailed to a Maximum Security Facility for the Maximum Sentence Plus Twenty there is no Excuse for their Dereliction of Duty. There is no Excuse at ALL!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. He should resign on his own. But you can tell by his demeanor that he will not do the right thing and resign. He is a media hog and is trying to polish his own apple!

    • He said he gave him a badge and gun and training, this goes to show his training sucked.

    • Bob says:

      He employed this officer. Therefore he is responsible for seeing that he does the job he was hired for. If he indeed hired a coward or if for some reason that officer was under orders to stand down (sort of funny that all four officers didn’t act responsibly) it is all in his lap. He is the sheriff.

      • zee says:

  10. Roger says:

    His comment ” I have an amazing department” That sure differs from my opinion of amazing. Guess he meant amgazing how inept to protect and serve

  11. Ron Halfhill says:

    In California law it states: If an individual has control of the actions of another person, such as a superior or supervisor, he may be held responsible for that person’s actions or failure to act. Look it up, it is in there. A superior officer is responsible for the acts of his subordinates. Period. How does it feel having your children at the mercy of this joker who doesn’t know the law, and who refuses to hold his subordinates responsible for their failure to act in the interest of the children?

    • Sandra Lee Smith says:

      In most places, the buck stops with the guy on top; whether private or public or military sectors. In this instance, I can’t imagine the SO and schools could make such a deal without at least the tacit agreement of the County Supervisors too.

  12. Neal says:

    If you were the captain of a ship, you would already have been relieved of your command and your career would be over. Yes, you are responsible.

    • Sandra Lee Smith says:

      Got that right; his XO would have done so, if he had the guts to step up, and done so immediately according to regs and the UCMJ.

        • zee says:

          Please ink re ‘obombas/Holders “special law”… Funding for filling quotas for a political statistic re quasi ‘reduced crime’.

          Hey what? That was required reading for all officers, even us nurses.

          • zee says:

            a Hey = hi.

          • Sandra Lee Smith says:

            Oh, sorry, I didn’t know you were from that part of the country. Hey back at you.

          • zee says:

            ps. geez- ‘easy’ to mis-interpret, i guess. So -Hello- hi is my ‘hey’.

          • zee says:

            WHERE does”That part of Country” mean??? haha.
            Born Mi. , but Many ppl ask where i from implying ‘accent?’ to Way Northern/Minn/Canada? don’t know. Interesting. Never realized i had ‘accent’? to some.

          • Sandra Lee Smith says:

            It’ s more common the the lower midwest moving toward the south, but it does seem to crop up in the north central plains too. Don’t hear that so much along the eastern seaboard or out here in the “west/southwest” area. Most people do have some regional accent, which they’re usually not aware of.

          • zee says:

            ps. can ‘speak’ all ‘vernaculars’ . whatever it takes to communicate.

    • Jimmy Tucker says:

      Neal, this moron is looking for a way for his ass not to be fired. He is a big Hillary and Bernie supporter and a left winger. Bet he would have not went in either.

  13. Had E. Nuff says:

    Let’s get real folks, it is obvious that this dopey looking dupe is nothing more than a appaRATchik of the Communist Party USA as are the FBI and most of the Deep State! It is all about gun control and there will be many more false-flag mass murders perpetrated by the FBI until the sheeple say uncle – it’s working to a tee!

  14. Sandra Lee Smith says:

    Well, he sure couldn’t tell them about the policy agreement with the schools to reduce arrests of their criminal students, thus giving passes on increasingly violent crimes to the juvenile criminals so they and the schools would look good on paper.

  15. Frank says:

    I believe that stricter background checks would be used as a stall tactic by law enforcement! When you get stopped for a traffic stop the officer sends your name over the radio ( or in his onboard computer) gets any & all info on you back within 5 minutes but when your fingerprints are taken on a card with your name & birthdate it takes weeks or even months for the sending law enforcement agency to “ get them back or so they tell you! Enforce the laws already in- acted the hinder only the law abiding citizens not criminals- the school was supposed to be a “ gun free zone” but again that doesn’t mean anything to the criminal!

  16. Mary says:

    Cliff is so right & it’s makes such sense I’m with u Cliff

  17. Mary says:

    Makes perfect sense U guys are on target Well said

  18. James Stamulis says:

    Anyone throwing blame at the NRA or any gun owner organization is simply intellectually dishonest to start with for those organizations only teach people how to protect themselves as this poor excuse for a sheriff has proven when seconds count this guy is too cowardly or deliberately absent without leave.

  19. Bob Hunt says:

    This must be a new era, back in the day it was common knowledge that the head man was responsible for his troops!

  20. Tom Cantu says:

    You are only as good as your people (the people u lead). You trained them well sheriff.

  21. Bob Hunt says:

    This must be in a new era. Back in the day it was common knowledge that the head man was responsible for his troops!

  22. Larry Sepulvado says:

    Charges should be filed with FBI,and shierff department,and shierff him self not nra . 21 yrs should be age limit. With medical back ground check. Should have armed officiers.houston don’t have that problem.it has police sub station in schools m

  23. Cliff says:

    The “coward county” sheriff not only needs to resign, but should be held accountable for this tragedy instead of “blaming everyone and everything around him”. (sounds just like every DEMOCOMMUNIST) Like hitlery perhaps, seeing that HE is a “good buddy” of the commiecrats.
    In MY opinion, if the TRUTH were told, the “deep state” FBI “handlers” KNEW they had a “loose cannon” to be exploited, and provided the funds and the “coaching” to make this happen. (where else would a “dollar store employee” get the MONEY for those expensive “toys” and accessories? His Mother’s life insurance payment had NOT been dispersed yet. (according to the news reports) If it IS the victims families should receive these funds and split it among themselves. I ALSO FIRMLY believe that this CORRUPT “sheriff” “instructed” his men to STAND DOWN for maximum carnage.
    COMMIECRATS do NOT care how many lives are lost to push their CORRUPT DISARMAMENT “agenda”, as long as they get their “way”. Civilians killed, are just considered ” ACCEPTABLE collateral damage” as they continue their CONSTANT “false flag” events to attempt to disarm Law-abiding citizens, so WE can be easily “controlled”, OR “eliminated” anytime they wish. (kind of sounds like history repeating itself does it NOT???)
