Controversial Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel was widely criticized over the weekend for posting to social media a back-to-school safety tips poster that included his picture.
Perhaps no criticism was more pointed than that of Kyle Kashuv, a survivor of February's massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
What are the details?
Safety tips included how to keep children safe on the school bus, the safe way for children to walk and bike to school, how to lawfully drive through school-zones, and what to do if a child is being bullied.
Ironically, Israel's picture was also plastered onto the poster. Many have accused Israel, the Broward County Sheriff's Office, and the Broward County school system of negligence in light of what they knew about the Parkland killer prior to the massacre and actions they did not take to prevent the tragedy from happening.
What was the response to the poster?
Kashuv said Israel placing his face on a "safety" poster is a "slap in the face to my classmates and 17 families that are still mourning." He also called on Israel to resign.

Dana Loesch, whom Israel personally criticized during a post-Parkland massacre town hall, also mocked the safety post in a series of tweets.
