The Sheriff, the Sheriff’s Son, and the ‘Coward of Broward.’ Backroom deal to save this guy’s ass? This is from Real Clear Investigations, not some hack website.

Some now think they have found the answer in a single incident that occurred in 2014. A police report shows that’s when Israel’s then-17-year-old son, Brett, was accused of participating in a sexual assault of a 14-year-old boy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas  High School. 

The case was investigated by Scot Peterson — the armed deputy who took cover while children and staff were shot last February. Using the Obama-era guidelines, Peterson’s recommendation helped his boss’s son receive just a three-day suspension. 

“Everyone in this county is wondering why Peterson was allowed to retire so quickly and take his pension,” said local attorney Alex Arreaza, who represents victims of the school tragedy. “Normally deputies  would not be allowed to retire under those circumstances, but in this case, Peterson was allowed to. This report gives a plausible reason,” he said.

Broward county can’t be isolated in terms of being lenient on young violent criminals so stats of school violence look good. There are undoubtedly sheriffs all over this country who operate just like Israel. If you have children in public schools, it’s a terrifying reality.

It is. Only the cowards stood pat and permitted the slaughter of those who needed them the most.

As I have said in the past, the layers are coming off and the shit is beginning to smell.

Will the me too crowd now be out to remove the head coward along with the son? Seems that there is a child molester in the mix and needs to be exposed. Sexual assault is sexual assault. Now daddy and his reach around buddy can explain this tid bit of information.

The cowards of Broward have blood on their hands as well as sexaul assualt upon the conscience.

The $%^*ing sheriff needs to go, the sexual predator needs to be arrested, investigated properly, then the information presented to a grand jury. Peterson should just drop DEAD.

Seen it before, Top Brass gets their ass covered by someone who all of a sudden gets a plumb assignment or promotion. This is bullshit, if the kid committed a sexual assault, he should be in jail, dad needs to resign now, and your right, Peterson should just do himself in for all the shame he brought on law enforcement.

Mine know if they get in trouble it’s on them. I’m not stepping in. Took my youngest to court once for an eye opening time. The judge had him come up to the bench. The judge asked a few general question. Then asked what would happen if he got into trouble. Without hesitation, he goes”my dad is not going to be happy and I’m going to be in so much trouble” the judge smiled and said not only with your dad but with me as well. Tough no nonsense judge

It’s a long time ago now but when my older daughter was a young teenager and thought it was time she should start wearing makeup and I thought it was not time, she walked next door from a Chuck E Cheese’s one night, to a K-Mart, and tried to shoplift some of the makeup I wouldn’t buy her. When she didn’t come back to Chuck E Cheese’s in a reasonable time I walked over to K-Mart with her younger sister and there she was, in the security office, caught red-handed. “What do you want me to do?” asked the K-Mart security guy. “Call the cops and have her arrested,” was my answer. My daughter looked at me like I was abandoning her on the sinking Titanic, but the message was received: Dad is not gonna help you avoid consequences when you do bad shit. As it turned out the cops were not interested in coming to K-Mart to arrest a 13-year-old girl for trying to shoplift make-up… but she never got in trouble again.

Unfortunately my scare speech about sex didn’t work out so well. Both of them laugh about it to this day. The speech was aimed at my older daughter who had her first boyfriend. We were in the car, they were in the back seat, and I started listing all the venereal diseases and describing the symptoms in the grossest language I could think of. Suddenly, looking in the read view mirror, I realized the daughter the speech was aimed at was just rolling her eyes and the younger daughter was sitting there with eyes wide like she was having a nightmare. Poor girl was practically scarred for life. She wouldn’t even kiss a guy until she was a senior in high school and he was on his way into a seminary. Oh well, maybe it did work…

I went through it, so did a couple of my brothers. The first time we got into trouble and asked mom to post our bail, we knew better than to ask dad, her words were you got yourself into trouble, you get out if it yourself. Worked pretty good too, we didn’t get into trouble very often!
