Broward County Sheriff’s Deputies Association is moving forward in a no-confidence vote to symbolically unseat Scott Israel as Broward County Sheriff. This is symbolic measure only in that it does not have the authority to remove Israel but the no-confidence vote should catch the attention of the Governor, the only power to remove an elected sheriff.
NBC Miami 6 reported the union released a statement claiming it was:
“many instances of suspected malfeasance, misfeasance, failure to maintain fiduciary responsibility by the Sheriff, failure to properly investigate possible criminal conduct by members of his senior command staff and the lack of leadership that has crushed morale through the agency.”
Hmmmm….sounds vaguely familiar. Couldn’t the same be said for Hefe Morgan? (By the way, I call him “Hefe Morgan or Boss Morgan” because there is no implication of honor in that title like there is in the title “sheriff” or even his bought title of “sir. “Hefe/jefe” in Spanish means “boss or chief”. Fidel Castro was called Commandente en jefe or Commander in Chief. Pablo Escobar was called El Jefe commonly translated into “The Boss”). That, to me, exemplifies his head criminal position in the ECSO.
But seriously, couldn’t the citizens, not just the deputies, request some symbolic vote or petition to outline the disdain for Hefe Morgan? Isn’t that abundantly clear with the latest hijinks on the budget?
