UH-OH: Broward County State Attorney Has Sheriff Israel In Crosshairs As New Details of Misconduct Emerge

Fox News contributor Sara A. Carter reports the Broward County State Attorney’s office is currently investigating more than 66 cases of misconduct under embattled Sheriff Scott Israel. 

Carter reports:

There are more than 66 investigations by the Broward County State Attorney’s office into Broward County Sheriff’s deputies and employees, ranging from drug trafficking to kidnapping since 2012. All the internal investigations occurred under embattled Sheriff Scott Israel’s watch, whose office is now under investigation for allegations that his deputies failed to allow first responders from treating patients at the scene of Stoneman Douglas High School shooting on Feb. 14, and that multiple deputies failed to enter the school to defend the children during the rampage that left 17 people dead, this reporter has learned.

According to lawyer David Schoen:

“Approximately 66 BSO (Broward Sheriff’s Office) deputies and other employees, including supervisory personnel were arrested for, charged with, and/or convicted of crimes that run the gamut from Armed Kidnapping, to Battery, Assault, Falsifying records, Official Misconduct, Narcotics trafficking, and other crimes involving dishonesty and violence in the years immediately proceeding 2013 when Jermaine was killed. Most of the offenses on the list occurred in the years 2012-2013,” according to court records filed by Schoen against Israel and the Broward County Sheriff deputy defendants.

As The Gateway Pundit reported, Israel was accused in 2016 of using ‘amorous’ women to illegally entrap African-American men.

In a deposition, Israel even admitted the VIPER unit (Violent Intervention Proactive Enforcement Response), which ‘entrapped’ Hilaire, “basically entrapped people via a ‘hotel method,’” says reporter Alex Rubinstein.


Florida House Speaker Richard Corcoran and “nearly every Republican House member” is demanding Gov. Rick Scott (R-FL) suspend Israel.

In the meantime, Gov. Scott has ordered the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to probe local police’s response to the shooting.

Israel is currently investigating why Scot Peterson, the former Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, failed to act as gunman Nikolas Cruz shot dead 17 people in Parkland, Florida.
