Judge Jeanine Pirro ripped Broward County, Fla. Sheriff Scott Israel for what she called his botched response to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.

Pirro said a sheriff’s deputy working under Israel and assigned to the Florida building remained outside during the shooting and that several other members of Israel's force took up positions by their squad cars.

She called the neighboring Coral Springs Police Department the "unsung heroes" of the day, since they were the ones who breached the building and later apprehended suspect Nikolas Cruz.

Pirro questioned why Israel, a former Republican elected sheriff twice as a Democrat in 2012 and 2016, did not know about the inaction of his officers on the night of the shooting.

She said it was likely because Israel was "too busy making media rounds," expressing outrage, and publicly hammering National Rifle Association spokeswoman Dana Loesch.

Pirro said Israel should "get the hell out" of Broward County law enforcement or be recalled by the voters in South Florida.

"The buck stops with you," she said. "How dare you trumpet your handling of this situation."

She said Israel received 18 calls regarding concerns about the shooting suspect, and that under Florida law, he had the power to involuntarily commit the 19-year-old to an asylum.
