Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel to face no-confidence vote from his own deputies

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, who touted his own "amazing leadership" after the Parkland school shooting, is facing a no-confidence vote from the union representing his deputies.
Jeff Bell, the president of the Broward Sheriff's Office Deputies Association, told CNN on Friday that union members had decided to move forward with the vote, which will begin electronically tonight and will close on April 26.
"There is a complete failure at the sheriff's office and he doesn't recognize it," Bell said.
Calling the vote a "ploy," Israel said the union "is trying to use the Parkland tragedy as a bargaining tactic to extort a pay raise."

I'm surprised the NRA and a vast right wing conspiracy wasn't blamed also. :roll:

Aside from the sheriff's comments in the aftermath of Parkland, a letter informing the union membership of the vote contains a multitude of other complaints against Israel. Union audits showed that Israel has returned hundreds of millions of dollars to the county that could have been used money for deputy salary increases, training, health care, crime laboratory upgrades and safety equipment, the letter said.

"The move follows many instances of suspected malfeasance ... and the lack of leadership that has crushed morale throughout the agency," the announcement from the deputies association says.

Israel is now a traffic cop of sorts

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – A former South Florida sheriff who was removed from office by the governor because of his agency’s response to the Parkland school shooting that left 17 people dead has found a new job reviewing the footage of red light cameras.

Former Broward Sheriff Scott Israel was hired this month by the Davie Police Department as a traffic infraction enforcement officer, the Sun Sentinel reported. He’ll make $65,000 a year, the same as his retiring predecessor, Davie Police Chief Stephen Kinsey said.

"Avarice, ambition, revenge and licentiousness would break the strongest cords of our Constitution, as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." John Adams to Mass Militia Oct 11, 1798

And they say police are not paid well.
Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can
and the Wisdom to know the difference.

Carrying a gun is a right, not a crime.

Gun control is racist.
