Sheriff Jokes About Massacre: ‘If Ifs and Buts Were Candy And Nuts, O.J. Simpson Would Still Be in the Record Books’

 

TAPPER: The last question, sir. Do you think that if the Broward Sheriff’s Office had done things differently, this shooting might not have happened?

ISRAEL: Listen, ifs and buts and candy and nuts, O.J. Simpson would still be in the record books.

(CROSSTALK)

TAPPER: I don’t know what that means.

There’s 17 dead people, and there’s a whole long list of things your department could have been done differently.

ISRAEL: How could — listen, that’s what after-action reports are. That’s for — lessons-learned reports are for.

We — I have entered into conversation with Chuck Wexler of the Police Executive Research Forum. They will be coming to town to do an independent after-action lessons-learned report.

We understand everything wasn’t done perfectly. And if it happened in Los Angeles or Chicago or any other city, every person wouldn’t have perform perfectly. That’s not what happens.

Yes, if Scot Peterson went into — do I believe in Scot Peterson went into that building, there was a chance he could have neutralized the killer and saved lives? Yes, I believe that.

But as far as anything else done at this point, I can’t say that.

TAPPER: Well, we hope you get to the bottom of it.

ISRAEL: And I might say it — what is that?

TAPPER: We hope you get to the bottom of it, sir. There are a lot of people wondering about a lot of questions.

ISRAEL: We will. We will. We will. We will.

And there’s no timeline on it, other than to work as fast as we can. But we want to get it right. We want to get it accurate. When we come to the public, we want accurate information. And we’re not going to push forward to meet the timeline of a show or a newscast.

TAPPER: All right. I appreciate it.

ISRAEL: Thank you.
