A placard from Floridians Against Fracking urges Florida's new governor Ron DeSantis to make good on his campaign promise to ban fracking in the state

DeSantis appointed a former Coral Springs sergeant, Gregory Tony, 40, to replace Israel.

His words drew a large applause from those in attendance.

Florida's governor, Ron DeSantis, has suspended the local sheriff criticized for the police response to last year's mass shooting that left 17 dead at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. DeSantis cited a list of failures enumerated by a state panel that investigated BSO's response to the February 14, 2018, shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. Seven other deputies who arrived within minutes also failed to enter, even as officers from neighboring Coral Springs went into the building. "Scott Israel misused his authority and abused his public trust by politicizing the nation's largest fully accredited Sheriff's Office for his own political ambitions".

The sheriff appeared before the cameras moments after Gov. Ron DeSantis stood outside BSO headquarters to announce that he had signed an executive order removing the elected sheriff from office.

Three Broward Sheriff's Office deputies resigned, saying they did so as a result of Israel's suspension, according to command separation forms released by the sheriff's office. Kevin Shults cited personal reasons for their departures. There, an exhausted Israel told anchor Jake Tapper: "I have given fantastic leadership to this agency".

"There was no wrongdoing on my part", Israel said shortly after the governor's announcement. Tony is the first black sheriff of Broward County. Israel's lawyer, Stuart Kaplan, said this week the sheriff did nothing warranting removal and his future should be left to Broward voters in the 2020 election.

"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.

During the campaign, DeSantis originally said he would suspend Israel, but then backed off slightly, saying he would hold officeholders accountable.

Israel for years has called for tougher gun laws in Florida, a stance that created critics long before the school shooting.

DeSantis said Israel "failed in his duties to keep our families and children safe during the devastating shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School".

Israel also discussed plans to get his title back after the Florida Senate reconvenes March 5.

In April, the Broward Sheriff's Office Deputies Association gave Israel a vote of no-confidence.

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