Dem FL State Sen. Perry Thurston

Florida Democratic senators who voted to reinstate suspended Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel should be ashamed of themselves for acting in favor of partisan politics, the brother of a Parkland shooting victim said on “Fox & Friends” Wednesday.

Hunter Pollack, whose sister Meadow was among the 17 people killed in the February 2018 high school shooting, said Israel’s incompetence contributed to her death and lamented the behavior of the Democrats in the state legislature, who are fighting to reinstate him as sheriff.

“The sheriff has lied on multiple occasions. There was a magnitude of failures,” he said. “I hope the Florida Senate does the right thing and upholds the suspension today.”

“Eight deputies were outside while shots were being fired,” Pollack added. “Something I’m so disgusted about the last few days is Florida Sen. Lauren Book, someone who has served on the MSD commission. [She] knew all the facts, watched my sister get murdered, but still voted to reinstate Sheriff Israel. She sold out the community of Broward county and put our children at risk.”
