REPORT: Broward Co. Sheriff Faces ‘No Confidence’ Vote from Deputies


As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by BREITBART.COM:

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, who bragged about his leadership during the Parkland, Florida, shooting, is facing a vote of no confidence from the union.

Jeff Bell, the Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputies Association president, announced Friday that members of the union would move forward with the vote, which began Friday night and will end April 26, for the first time in the union’s history.

The article goes on to state the following:

“This has never been done in the history of BSO. So, is it symbolic more than anything? Yes it is,” Bell told the Miami Herald. “However it will send a strong message. He’s gone off the radar. We’re like a ship out at sea with no power right now.”

Bell said the no confidence vote would let Israel know the union is not pleased with his handling of both the Parkland shooting that killed 17 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and an upcoming union contract.

The sheriff, who holds an elected office, has been slammed for his department’s response to the February 14 shooting.
