A new level of ineptitude has reared its ugly head at Broward County Sheriff’s Office

As if we didn’t have enough reason to doubt that the Broward County Sheriff’s Department was a competent organization.

For decades, the American trope of a bumbling and ineffective police officer was merely a visage of the classic Don Knots character Gomer Pyle, who would famously have to ask his chief if he was allowed to even carry his own gun.

Now, however, it seems that a new level of ineptitude has reared its ugly head in 2018, and the worst part is that it isn’t even fictional.

I’m speaking, of course, about the wholly incapable Sheriffs of Broward County, Florida, who are responsible, if not culpable for the deaths of 16 students and a coach at Stoneman Douglas High School in the city of Parkland back in February.

Not only did the Sheriff’s department participate in a controversial and misused program that created an incentive for the school to allow criminal students to walk free, but their previous interactions with the shooter, Nikolas Cruz, were wholly ineffective and suspect.

On top of all of that, video was released recently that showed Sheriff’s deputies waiting outside of the school where Cruz was slaughtering innocent children, cowering in fear.

And, as if we didn’t have enough reason to doubt that the Broward County Sheriff’s Department was a competent organization, another bit of corruption is surfacing today that pretty much seals the deal.

It’s kind of an amazing thing that three months after the Parkland school shooting, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel is not only still a gainfully employed man, but he holds the same position he did when the shooting occurred.

Now comes news that the disgraced school resource officer who refused to enter Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School during the shooting may have covered up an alleged sexual assault by Israel’s son during a bullying incident at the same school where the shooting happened.

According to a report by WPLG in Miami, parents are calling for an investigation into an incident four years ago where Deputy Scot Peterson may have altered a report involving one of Israel’s children so that no legal action was taken.

Peterson, you may remember, was heavily criticized by Israel but not fired for staying outside the school while students were being killed. Instead, he was allowed to resign, entitling him to a six-figure public pension.

Just how bad was it?  Bad.

“The case involved two 17-year-old students bullying a 14-year-old freshman, with one holding down the younger boy by his ankles while the other kicked the victim, grabbed his genitals and then took the victim’s own baseball bat and began shoving it against his buttocks, simulating rape, through the boy’s clothes,” WPLG reported.

“One of those assailants, the boy who allegedly held down the victim, was Israel’s son, Brett. Defense attorney Alex Arreaza, who represents shooting victim Anthony Borges, who was shot five times in the Valentine’s Day massacre but survived, said the case could have led to felony charges,” the outlet continued.

All I know is that, if I ever visit Parkland, Florida, I fully expect Scot Israel to be dropping fries at whichever Whataburger I choose to visit.

Southern Restaurant Scorched After Refusing to Serve Unvaccinated People

The unvaccinated are quickly becoming second class citizens in America.

In these late-stages of the pandemic, there are a number of emerging plot lines that almost seem more controversial than those that we experienced at the beginning of this fiasco, and it makes us wonder if some of it isn’t just for show. For instance, in the restaurant industry, where just about every businesses owner is struggling mightily, there are a number of different approaches to dealing with this latest “delta” variant of COVID-19.  This is of particular note now that many establishments had reopened during the lull in cases, and are now hanging on for dear life during “delta”. But one restaurant in the deep south has thrown their prosperity aside, and are making the controversial decision to serve only vaccinated customers. An Atlanta restaurant is making the bold decision to serve only customers who are fully vaccinated. Argosy Restaurant and Bar, located in East Atlanta Village, is one of the first businesses in Georgia to mandate with signs that say “No Vax, No Service.” The company owner made the decision earlier this week after he and several of his employees, who were all fully vaccinated, contracted the virus as breakthrough cases. The owner has suggested that these breakthrough cases were worse for business than treating the unvaccinated as though they are second class citizens. “We did it strictly as a business decision after multiple staff members tested positive,” said restaurant owner Armando Celentano. “We had to close down during a busy weekend, losing out on tens of thousands of dollars.” The decisions certainly stirred up a great deal of conversation on social media, where the restaurant received both praise and criticism for its decision.

US Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
