Parkland school shooting survivor Kyle Kashuv shamed Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel on “Fox & Friends” Monday for appearing in a back-to-school safety poster.

Israel was in charge of the failed response to the Parkland massacre that took place in February at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. (RELATED: Jason Chaffetz Says Parkland Students Need To Embrace Jesus)

“It was absolutely horrendous that he did something like that,” Kashuv said. “It’s disgusting that he still is in that position, he’s still doing his incompetent job there.”

Kashuv claimed there were multiple requests submitted to the sheriff to expand active shooter training, but said they failed to respond. He also blamed the sheriff’s office for failing to arrest shooter Nikolas Cruz.

WATCH:

“After the shooting the sheriff had the audacity to go on national television and to blame the NRA, guns and every single aspect but to take responsibility,” Kashuv continued. “He lied to the faces of victims and the families of the victims on national television. And then he also had the audacity to blame his subordinates for his inactions and incompetence. He refuses to take any, absolutely any responsibility for actions.”

“His own deputies gave him a vote of no confidence,” he added.

Kashuv said the students still feel unsafe and are at the mercy of incompetent of school officials.

“Nothing has been done to secure our schools,” he concluded. “And the metal detectors that were promised by the sheriff and our superintendent have still not been implemented. We are still unsafe and vulnerable at our schools.”
