MEDIA CLOWN SHERIFF ISRAEL IS ALSO A LIAR

SHERIFF ISRAEL THINKS HE IS A MEDIA STAR

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel (D) has been all over nationwide Left-wing Media since February 14th when a former student, whom his office had given a pass for years, shot 31 students and teachers in their Florida high school.  Playing down the importance of the warnings his office received about the school shooter, Nikolas Cruz, Israel has repeatedly stated that they “only” received 23 calls for help at Cruz’s house.

Following Israel’s 30-minute interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday, CNN obtained records from the sheriff’s office.  The records show at least 45 calls for service relating to Cruz or his brother between 2008 and 2017.  Will Israel continue to lie at his next TV appearance?

CNN reports that they have repeatedly asked the sheriff’s office to explain the discrepancy, sending emails and attempting to reach a representative in the sheriff’s office by phone, and have received no response.

IS CNN FINALLY BECOMING A REAL NEWS NETWORK?

The day after the shooting, CNN received a Broward County Sheriff’s Office log based on a public records request showing 39 calls from Cruz’s house over a six-year period.  Nevertheless, during CNN’s anti-gun town hall about the Parkland school shooting on February 21st, host Jake Tapper did not correct Israel when he emphatically stated there had only been 23 calls, as he blamed the NRA’s five million members for this slaughter.

The following day, during a press conference, Israel doubled down on the false figure, stating that his agency “has been involved in 23 type calls involving the killer in some way, shape or form — or his brother.”

Two days later, the sheriff’s office reiterated that lower figure, releasing this public statement: “Since 2008, BSO responded to 23 incidents where previous contact was made with the killer or his family.  STOP REPORTING 39; IT’S SIMPLY NOT TRUE.”  That day, he made the same claim in a letter to the governor.

However, based on logs of the original calls and additional records since obtained from the sheriff’s office, CNN has found that the Broward County Sheriff’s Office actually received 45 calls in the past decade related to the Cruz home, Nikolas Cruz or his brother.

The documents in question include call logs from the law enforcement agency’s “computer aided dispatch” system.  The records list police calls from the home at 6166 Northwest 80th Terrace in Parkland, Florida, which was the home owned by Nikolas Cruz’s mother during that time period, according to property deeds.

Each police call has a unique identifying number, dispatch date and time, and description.  The descriptions include mentions of a “mentally ill person,” “child/elderly abuse,” “domestic disturbance,” “missing person,” and more.  The vast majority of the calls resulted in “no written report.”

IS BROTHER ZACHARY CRUZ A MASS-KILLER-IN-WAITING?

A CNN review of the records shows that at least 19 calls relate to Nikolas Cruz, starting when he was as young as 9 years old.  An additional 25 calls regarded only his younger brother, Zachary, for behavior ranging from running away to hitting his mother.  A final one is ambiguous about which boy it involves.

Calls relating to Nikolas Cruz include descriptions of fights with his brother, cursing at his mother, and throwing her against the wall for taking away his Xbox.  The issues brought to the sheriff’s attention worsen over time.  In 2014, someone accused him of shooting a chicken with a BB gun.

CRUZ’S NEIGHBOR KNEW HE WAS DANGEROUS

Records show that in 2016, a neighbor warned the sheriff’s office of an Instagram post in which Cruz said he “planned to shoot up the school.”  At that time, Cruz was still a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.  The caller, Joelle Guarino, told CNN she placed the 911 call  and had begged the sheriff’s office to intervene.  She was told there was nothing deputies could do until Cruz actually did something, she said.

TAXPAYER-PAID SOCIAL SERVICES ALSO FAILED PARKLAND COMMUNITY

Later in 2016, an peer counselor alerted the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School’s school resource deputy (Scot Peterson) that Cruz “possibly” drank gasoline “in an attempt to commit suicide,” was “cutting himself,” and “wished to purchase a gun.”  An investigator with Florida’s Department of Children and Families spoke to Cruz, but his therapist ultimately advised that he was “not currently a threat to himself or others” and did not need to be committed.

On November 1, 2017, the day his mother, Lynda Cruz, died, Broward Sheriff’s Office received a call from her cousin, who warned deputies that Cruz had rifles and pleaded for them to “recover these weapons.”

On November 30, the sheriff’s office received a call from a tipster in Massachusetts who warned them Cruz was “collecting guns and knives,” and “could be a school shooter in the making.”  Records show that the family Cruz first lived with following his mother’s death (and later kicked him out) called the sheriff’s office in November to warn them that Cruz wanted to hurt people.  The deputy “referred caller to the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office,” which had jurisdiction over Cruz’s temporary home with a family friend.  Within days, Cruz was back south in Broward County staying with another friend’s family.

BROWARD COUNTY’S MEDIA STAR TAKES NO RESPONSIBILITY

On Sunday morning, Sheriff Israel appeared on CNN’s State of the Union program. Anchor Jake Tapper asked Israel if he takes “any responsibility for the multiple red flags” that were brought to the agency’s attention.

“Jake, I can only take responsibility for what I knew about. I exercised my due diligence. I have given amazing leadership to this agency,” Israel replied.

Since the attack, which killed 17, there have been multiple calls for the sheriff to resign from his elected post.  Last Saturday, Florida State Rep. Bill Hager (R-Boca Raton) urged the governor to relieve Israel for “gross incompetence.”  On Sunday, Florida Speaker of the House Richard Corcoran (R-Land O’Lakes), wrote a letter to the governor citing the department’s “failures to intervene” with Nikolas Cruz that are “unacceptable and unforgivable.”

Other than prancing in front of TV cameras, what has Israel done since the shooting?  Thrown School Resource Officer, Deputy Sheriff Scot Peterson, under the bus for doing exactly what Israel has wanted him to do for nine years, ignore crime on campus.

Will the parents of Broward County launch a recall of their lying, incompetent, show horse sheriff?

    Agreed, in order to have a successful civilization you must 1st establish RULE OF LAW. If that ever breaks down CHAOS ensues. Sheriff Israel ignored the Constitutional Law, this is what he got! This guy has got to go, the tort suits alone are going to break their county. I would not be surprised if a criminal case against him ensues also.
