Florida sheriff tells staff he expects to be suspended over Parkland shooting
By Brett Samuels - 01/08/19 05:24 PM EST

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, who endured fierce criticism in the wake of February's shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., has indicated to colleagues he expects to be suspended or removed from office, according to multiple reports.

The Miami Herald and The Miami New Times reported Tuesday that Israel told staff that he felt his removal was inevitable.

“We know that he is telling everyone at the public safety building that he is going to be gone,’’ Jeff Bell, the head of the Broward Sheriff's Office's union, told The Miami Herald.

The Broward Sheriff's Office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

One of Israel's lawyers told the news outlet that the sheriff was at work on Tuesday, and that they have not heard from the governor's office about his fate.

The sumbitch should have resigned like a man days after the cowards of broward co failed in their duties under his lack of leadership.

Rick Scott should have fired him on his last day in office
