I try to keep my mouth shut when it comes to politics. Gets me in trouble.
Not that I don’t enjoy the discourse, but my family was loud growing up. So naturally… I’m loud. Seems to piss people off.
Because of that, I keep to myself except when I know I’m in good company. But today, I just couldn’t keep my trap closed.
Democrats in Broward County filed a motion saying that former Sheriff Scott Israel was put on suspension “without good cause and with no hearing.”
Excuse me? No good cause? Let me remind you about why DeSantis did exactly what he should have.
How about the fact that Israel didn’t do his job, and that by failing to uphold his duties, people – children – died?
How about the fact that he didn’t provide proper training for his officers?
How about the fact that under his command, responding units danced around outside for nearly an hour while a gunman did as he pleased without confrontation?
How about the fact that his officers admitted they had no idea when the last time they had been trained to deal with an active shooter was?
How about the fact that under Israel’s hand, the department was failing to keep the public safe?
DeSantis also ousted ex-Broward Sheriff Scott Israel, who also sued over his removal. “My administration will not tolerate negligence nor incompetence from any government official, especially those charged with the sacred duty of protecting our children.”https://t.co/Qq79MDg0Cm

Israel’s lack of leadership is appalling.
Toxic administration destroys departments from the inside out. If things are bad in your department, look up.
Who’s running the show? And what are they doing, or not doing to continuously improve the operation?
And why are Democrats so into supporting Israel? I can’t for the life of me figure it out. The man could have prevented a mortifying tragedy if he had done his job, yet not many have come out to condemn his lack of preparation.
This quote came from the Sun Sentinel from a prominent Democrat: the “bottom-line issue is that we have a Republican governor who has removed from office Democratic elected officials, people that we have voted for and re-elected and now have been removed.”
I’m sorry… when did the left suddenly start caring about the Constitution? Seems to me I’m seeing a new story every week about how they’re trying to change it.
Yet they stand by him.

DeSantis, who was 100% right in removing Israel from the position, said that, “the massacre might never have happened had Broward had better leadership in the sheriff’s department.”
I don’t know about you, but that’s a pretty damning statement from where I’m sitting.
So, I guess I’m done ranting. But I’d like to hear from my fellow cops: was DeSantis right for suspending Israel? And if not, why?
