We’d like to say we’re shocked that any lawmaker, Republican or Democrat, would consider reinstating Sheriff Scott Israel but with the way things go in Florida we’re just not.
Andrew Pollack, who lost his daughter in the Parkland Shooting spoke out against his reinstatement:
Scott Israel’s failed leadership led to the murder of my daughter and 16 other innocent lives.
When my daughter needed help, Israel’s deputies hid

And then Dana Loesch jumped in as well.
You guys remember when Israel tried to blame her and Marco Rubio for the Parkland Shooting at CNN’s Townhall? ‘Cuz we do and we’re willing to bet she remembers it too.
It is insane that there is any reconsideration of this man’s reinstatement. He sat on a stage and blamed everyone else for his failure to act in HIS capacity as (former) sheriff. Any lawmaker — Republican or Democrat — that moves to support this should be shamed by voters. https://t.co/GznLWLE42t

It is INSANE.
I live in Broward County, and this man is a known hack and a partisan operative. He is a very good example of how NOT to be a sheriff. We don't want this absolute failure to leech on our taxes while putting the entire county at risk because of his corruption & incompetence.

What he said.
his failure makes it even more imperative for us to retain our rights to defend ourselves and our families by any means necessary. When the cops chicken out, who is left?

Very simply the dude needs to find a completely different line of work.

There ya’ go.
There must be a mall somewhere in northern Alaska that could use someone with his expertise to make sure their parking lot is safe from maurading moose.
