Fiery 'Resign in Shame': Parkland Survivor Rips FL Sheriff for Appearing on School Safety Poster
A survivor of the Parkland school shooting ripped the Broward County sheriff after he was featured on a back-to-school safety poster.
"Sheriff Scott Israel's Back-to-School Safety Tips" featured advice on bullying, riding the school bus and walking to school.
Israel was in charge at the time of the Feb. 14 shooting, during which 17 people were killed, and has since faced scathing criticism over his officers' response.
Student Kyle Kashuv sent out a scathing tweet in response to the poster, calling Israel an "absolute disgrace" and that he should "resign in shame."
You're an absolute disgrace. Putting your face on anything to do with "school safety" is a slap in the face to my classmates and 17 families that are still mourning.
Resign in shame, you self aggrandizing coward. https://t.co/bRyKfNxIwr

Kashuv, Turning Point USA's Director of High School Outreach, said on "Fox & Friends First" that it was "disgusting" that Israel still maintains his role.
"It's disgusting that he's still in that position and he's still doing his incompetent job there."
A union of deputies gave Israel a vote of "no confidence" in April due to his response to the shooting.
"[Israel] refuses to take absolutely any responsibility for his actions," Kashuv said on Monday.

He went on to say that he and his fellow students don't feel safe at school, even six months after the shooting.
"Nothing has been done to secure our schools," he said, adding that metal detectors that were promised have not yet been installed.
"We are still unsafe and vulnerable at our schools."
