I’ve known department heads in corporate America who held themselves to higher standards than this guy who oversaw a complete law-enforcement dereliction of duty from top to bottom:
Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel refusing to resign telling @nbc6: "I gave him a gun. I gave him a badge. I gave him the training. If he didn’t have the heart to go in, that’s not my responsibility." Clip from our one-on-one interview below. #DouglasHighSchool pic.twitter.com/FV5Gn0ZEBY

It should also be added to the file that Nikolas Cruz called the cops on HIMSELF on more than one occasion around the same time the police received a tip that Cruz might do… exactly what he did:
It has been revealed that the infamous 19-year-old Florida school shooter who killed 17 people after he opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School called the police distressed after his mother passed away just months ago.
Nikolas Cruz called authorities just after Thanksgiving, saying he had been in a fight and was struggling with the death of his mother. ‘The thing is I lost my mother a couple of weeks ago, so like I am dealing with a bunch of things right now,’ he told police.
On January 5, just a month before the shooting, a woman who knew Cruz called the FBI tip line and said ‘I know he’s going to explode. ‘She said her biggest fear was that he might resort to entering a school and just start ‘shooting the place up.’
But the Broward County sheriff is treating the calls for his resignation as if they’re unfair witch hunts — all while he’s been pointing a finger at the NRA to deflect blame. I’m speechless.
