Again, the only scandal bigger than how long it took to remove this feckless, self-impressed clown from his job is the number of lives that were lost as a result of his mismanagement and incompetence.
From the South Florida Sun-Sentinel:
Gov. Ron DeSantis removed Broward Sheriff Scott Israel from office Friday, replacing him after 10 months of turmoil spawned by the slaughter of 17 staff and students in Parkland.
The governor replaced Israel with former Coral Springs Police Sgt. Gregory Tony, 40, who has a background in active-shooter training.and becomes the first black sheriff in Broward County’s history.

Again from the Sun-Sentinel:
Jeff Bell, head of the deputies’ International Union of Police Associations and a member of DeSantis’ transition team, had a more harsh assessment.
“He has turned this agency, the largest fully accredited sheriff’s office in the country, into a political machine for his own well-being,” Bell said. “He’s incompetent and should be removed permanently before anyone else is killed on his watch.”
If you can stomach it, here’s the full Parkland commission report.
