Corcoran calls for BSO Sheriff Israel’s immediate suspension


Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel’s days in office may be numbered as a slew of elected officials and everyday Americans are calling for his resignation or firing after the Parkland school shooting that left 17 dead.

In the days following the shooting, it was learned that a Broward Sheriff assigned to the school refused to engage the shooter Nikolas Cruz and stayed outside the building until help arrived. Florida Speaker of the House Richard Corcoran, along with  73 other Republicans state legislators, signed a letter asking for Gov.Rick Scott to suspend Israel for “incompetence and neglect of duty.”

The letter also mentions previous incidents where the sheriff’s office failed to respond to alerts and concerns raised about Cruz.
