New Florida governor suspends sheriff over school massacre

Despite those allegations, former Orlando police Chief John Mina - one of the leaders in the response - was elected Orange County's sheriff in November.

The Marjory Stoneman Douglas public safety commission found that officials involved with the response to the shooting, including sheriff's deputies and high school assistant principals, offered accounts that contradicted surveillance video and other evidence. "Pollack said, "[Tony's] a law-and-order-type policeman who wants to do right by the community and keep the community safe".

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is expected to suspend Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, following criticism over his handling of last year's Parkland school shooting.

"We're here because of failures from the past., but today is a new day", said Ryan Petty, the father of MSD victim Alaina Petty.

The Broward County Sheriff's Office would not comment on the report.

Jeff Bell, president of the Broward Sheriff's Office Deputies Association, has long criticized Israel's leadership and praised DeSantis on Friday for acting in accordance with the will of his union members.

"Our water and natural resources are the foundation of our economy and our way of life in Florida", DeSantis says in a news release. "The governor promised as a candidate - well before he had any facts of the investigation, well before the commission even began their work - that he would remove me from office".

"There was no wrongdoing on my part", he said.

"I'm not a scientist, but I know what I can do and that's do everything I can to protect the environment", said Scott.

Canadian town 'inundated' with dozens of stranded seals
On Tuesday, the police said they had safely returned a seal to the ocean but warned against approaching them. The seals also bite, and Fitzgerald said she is anxious about children getting too close.

Israel is likely to fight the move in the Florida Senate or possibly in court.

Broward County Sheriff's Office training on active shooters was inadequate, according to the report, which recommended arming teachers and spending more on school security and mental health to prevent similar mass shootings.

According to state law, Florida governors can suspend sheriffs for "malfeasance" and "neglect of duty".

"Let's understand the suspension for what it really is, a massive political power grab, by the governor to subvert the will of our Broward County voters", Israel said.

DeSantis cited Israel's "incompetence" and said he "demonstrated a pattern of poor leadership" after the Fort Lauderdale International Airport shooting in 2017 and the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on February 14, 2018.

"Today, he merely fulfilled a campaign promise", Israel said. "This was about politics, not about Parkland".

After expressing his sympathies for the families who lost loved ones in the mass shooting, Israel insisted he had not failed in his duty.

Five BSO command staff members resigned from the force just prior to DeSantis' announcement: Undersheriff Stephen Kinsey, Col. Jack Dale, Col. James Polan, Maj. Her father Ryan said the failure of BSO deputies to rush into the freshman building to confront the shooter and an active shooter policy that allowed them to avoid doing so is evidence of a failure of leadership at the agency.

Israel said then he would not resign. Peterson instructed deputies to stay away from the building where the shootings took place, the draft said.
