Union: No-confidence in Broward sheriff after school massacre

The association represents about 1,300 deputies and sergeants who "put their lives on the line every day", according to its president.

"As your largest union, we support you and have confidence in how you are running this large complex agency", said the letter from the public employees' union, which claims to represent 2,500 Broward Sheriff's Office employees. I am asking him to re-evaluate the position of sheriff here in Broward County.

He added, "In fact, the union boss who asked for this vote of no-confidence wrote me a handsome letter a year and a half ago, actually endorsing me for sheriff, talking about my leadership and morals".

A deputies' union said Thursday afternoon that it has "no confidence" in Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel. Only the state senate has the power to remove him. Ninety-four people voted for Israel, Bell said.

"You have to remember this is one small portion of a union".

White selected by LA Chargers in NFL Draft
West Virginia University safety Kyzir White became the first Mountaineer to hear his name called in the 2018 NFL Draft . At the time White said it was a near 50-50 split on the position that National Football League teams pegged him at.


Out of the 628 who voted, 534 no longer have confidence, while 94 have confidence, the organization said.

"The vote is really and truly inconsequential".

"It's appalling, it's shameful", said Israel.

After the results of the vote were announced, Israel released a statement saying that he "will not be distracted" by the union vote.

"In fact the union boss, who asked for this vote of no confidence, wrote me a attractive letter about a year and a half ago actually endorsing me for sheriff, talking about my leadership and moral". What's changed since then? "He fails to listen to the membership and he wants to blame everybody else for his problems".

"The sheriff is a complete liar, capital letters on that. This has never been about a contract, this has been about his longstanding bad policies, his failure of leadership", said Bell.

He said the last straw was Israel's handling of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, which drew harsh criticism and a probe ordered by Scott's office.

Video shows Peterson remained outside after investigators say former student Nikolas Cruz opened fire February 14 inside the three-story freshman building with an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle.

A recent report from a neighboring department -who also responded at the school shooting- publicly accused Broward County deputies "taking cover" behind trees and cars as the massacre unfolded inside the building. Peterson retired rather than accept an unpaid suspension. The office received almost 20 calls about him in the years leading up to the shooting, mostly from his late mother about his behavior, but the sheriff's office said there was nothing he could be arrested for.

"If he feels that Sheriff Israel must be removed or suspended, we will fully support him in that decision".
