#ResignSheriffIsrael Dominates Twitter After Damning Parkland Reports Surface

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel is facing intense scrutiny over recent revelations from the Parkland shooting.

After he chastised NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch at the CNN Town Hall over gun control, numerous developments regarding his office have surfaced. First, Israel shared to the public that an armed on-campus deputy, Officer Scot Peterson, waited outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School for four minutes before going in (the entire shooting reportedly took place within six minutes). Then it was reported that his office was warned about the shooter back in November but was never documented in their files. And earlier this evening, it was reported that the sheriff’s office had three additional armed deputies outside the high school but hid behind their vehicles.

Now, Twitter is demanding his resignation.

Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro kicked off the trend with #ResignSheriffIsrael.

Not long after, the hashtag gained traction, becoming one of the biggest trends on Twitters. others have chimed in, including the NRA.
