Fox News’ Tucker Carlson said on his show Monday that he believes there is something seriously wrong with Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel.
“Israel relentlessly brags about himself,” Carlson stated.
“Once the Parkland shooting began, Israel’s deputies refused their most basic duties. Deputy Scot Peterson’s only job was to protect students at the school–hid while Cruz murdered 17 people. When three more Broward deputies arrived, they too took shelter behind their cars, rather than try and enter the school and save the lives of children.”
“Scott Israel is the man in charge of all of this and, of course, he is responsible for it. He loudly disagrees, indeed, Israel relentlessly brags about himself to all media who will record it,” The Daily Caller co-founder said.
“Two years ago for example, the local newspaper in Florida, reported that Israel used tax dollars to build a personal political machine, and he clearly had, the evidence was there, stone cold. Confronted with it, Israel said this, quote: ‘What have I done differently than Don Shula or Abraham Lincoln or Martin Luther King or Gandhi,’ end quote. And by the way, he said, lions don’t care about the opinions of sheep. Stable people don’t talk like this, obviously. Something is wrong with Sheriff Israel. As recently as yesterday, he was refusing to accept any responsibility in the face of his well-documented failures.” (RELATED: Sheriff Israel: ‘Not Sure’ If Shooter’s Red Flags Were Followed Up On)
