We kinda wondered if cops felt the same way about Broward County Sheriff Israel as the rest of us did, and we’re getting a pretty good indication that they do.
They’re getting ready to hit Israel with a vote of “no confidence.”
More from NBC News:
Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel will face a no-confidence vote following numerous failures that have “crushed morale through the agency,” the Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputies Association said.
The move comes as Israel and his agency have been heavily criticized for their response during and after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in which 17 people, mostly teenage students, were shot dead.
In a statement, the deputies association said it scheduled the vote after “many instances of suspected malfeasance, misfeasance, failure to maintain fiduciary responsibility by the Sheriff, failure to properly investigate possible criminal conduct by members of his senior command staff and the lack of leadership that has crushed morale through the agency.”
The president of the deputies association, which is represented by the International Union of Police Associations trade union, said the no-confidence vote lasts up to a week. Members of the association can vote electronically, while non-members can vote in person at its headquarters.
Good luck with that, buddy. I hope they vote this clown out in the next election…
