Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel failed the students of Stoneman Douglas High. From failing to follow up on several online threats made by alleged shooter Nikolas Cruz, to having reportedly up to FOUR armed deputies standing down outside of the school as the shooting was taking place, it should be so clear to the public that he and his officers are INCOMPETENT.
Despite all of this, CNN had no problem with putting him front and center of the gun control debate, putting him on stage against NRA representative @dloesch
to field scripted questions asked by some of the survivors. During the exchange, he proposed what he believed to be the solution to this madness; ~~~“We have to expand the Baker Act. When police encounter someone who is going through mental illness, we shouldn’t have to wait until they’re a danger to themselves or someone else. We should be able to take them to an institution to examine them, and take their weapons away from them.”~~~ Apparently, he believes that his officers are not just capable agents of law enforcement, but they should now also be deemed competent mental health professionals.
Do you think his department should be granted such power over the public?
