Gov. DeSantis Suspends Sheriff Israel

According to reports, Andrew Pollack, whose daughter was killed in the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland a year ago, recommended Tony, who will be Broward County's first African-American sheriff.

News of a replacement for Sheriff Israel comes just days after he told his staff that DeSantis was suspending him over his office's handling of the Parkland schooting. Tony is a former Coral Springs Police Sergeant and is Broward County's first African-American Sheriff. He backed off later in the campaign, saying only that he would hold officeholders accountable.

Israel had created the department's active-shooter policy which obviously let the community down. "I understand it's easier to say "Suspend Sheriff Israel" than it is to address the real problem: The problem around this nation of gun violence". "They were threatened that they were going to be killed", Loesch told Israel.

Though Sheriff Israel claimed he showed exceptional leadership, the report stated that his subordinates were not properly trained while using outdated radio technology that hindered communication during the shooting.

"These incidents demonstrate Sheriff's Israel's repeated incompetence and neglect of duty", DeSantis wrote in his executive order.

Nikolas Cruz has confessed to being the gunman, and carrying out the shooting at his Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, his former school, according to court documents.

Under Florida law, DeSantis has the right to suspend election officials accused of "criminal activity, misfeasance, incompetence or neglect of duty", according to ABC News.

The statement added, "The families of the victims deserve accountability". His office also appears not to have followed up on tips that Cruz was unsafe prior to the shooting.

During a November meeting of the MSD Safety Commission, Israel was brought in to answer questions.

Since the Parkland shooting, in which 14 students and three staff members were killed, Israel and his office have been criticized for their response to the shooting.

The commission noted that a written policy saying that Broward County deputies "may" confront active shooters, rather than "shall", provided an excuse for not entering the school to confront the shooter. Israel has said none of those contacts warranted an arrest.

Commissioners also concluded that the department's active shooter training had not been effective.

"He has been one of the very few sheriffs whose had a strong presence in the black community", said Kelly Davis, a radio DJ known as Big Man Kelly. He criticized the draft, and the final version was less harsh - but numerous same communications problems that plagued the airport response repeated at Stoneman Douglas.
