Scott Israel (Campaigning?) Calls for Investigation of Decade-Old BSO Hogtieing Death
The motto of the Broward Sheriff's Office could be "if it's uncomfortable, don't talk about it." The death of an inmate by suicide, with plenty of warning signs, in a Broward jail? Silence. The federal investigation into Lt. David Benjamin, who ferried Ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein to his getaway jet? Silence.
Israel is seeking to unseat incumbent Republican Sheriff Al Lamberti in the November election and he is the first candidate to publicly express concern over the controversial case. He criticized his opponent for having a "lack of respect and compassion for justice, or Brown's family."The Broward Sheriff's Office has not responded to questions about Israel's call for a special prosecutor and Lamberti has yet to comment on the case.
