Video shows Brett Kavanaugh turning away as a Parkland shooting victim’s father tries to to shake his hand

Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter Jamie was killed in the Parkland high-school shooting in February, attempted to shake Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s hand during his Supreme Court confirmation hearing on Tuesday, but was rebuffed.
Video shows Guttenberg extending his hand and attempting to introduce himself.
Kavanaugh turned and walked away.
Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California invited Guttenberg as a guest, and formally introduced the outspoken gun-control advocate during the hearing.
It’s unclear whether Kavanaugh heard what Guttenberg said or if he understood who he was.

The father of a teenage girl killed in the high-school shooting in Parkland, Florida, accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of turning his back on him and refusing to shake his hand during Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing on Tuesday.

Fred Guttenberg became an outspoken gun-control advocate in the wake of his daughter Jamie’s death, and attended Kavanaugh’s hearing as a guest of Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California.

“Just walked up to Judge Kavanaugh as morning session ended,” Guttenberg tweeted. “Put out my hand to introduce myself as Jaime Guttenberg’s dad. He pulled his hand back, turned his back to me and walked away. I guess he did not want to deal with the reality of gun violence.”

Though it’s unclear whether Kavanaugh recognized Guttenberg when he approached, Feinstein had formally introduced Guttenberg as “the father of Jamie, one of 17 killed in the Parkland shooting” during her opening remarks.

Photos and videos of the exchange quickly went viral, showing Guttenberg with his hand extended as Kavanaugh briefly paused, then turned away.

In one video, Guttenberg can faintly be heard telling Kavanaugh that his daughter was “murdered in Parkland.”

LA district attorney declines to prosecute sex crime cases against Kevin Spacey, Anthony Anderson, and Steven Seagal

kevin spacey

The Los Angeles county district attorney has declined to prosecute sex crime cases against Kevin Spacey, Anthony Anderson, and Steven Seagal, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
In the cases against Spacey and Seagal, which dated back to the early 1990s, the statue of limitations had passed, and Anderson’s case was dropped after his accuser declined to be interviewed, authorities said.

The Los Angeles county district attorney has declined to prosecute sex crime cases against actors Kevin Spacey, Anthony Anderson, and Steven Seagal, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Authorities said the statute of limitations had passed in the cases it investigated against Spacey and Seagal, while Anderson’s case was dropped after his accuser declined to be interviewed by authorities.

Spacey was fired from the Netflix series “House of Cards” last year after numerous men accused him of sexual misconduct and assault, dating back to the early 1980s. The particular case of alleged sexual assault against Spacey that the LA district attorney announced it dropped on Tuesday took place in 1992, authorities told THR.

The case of alleged sexual assault against Seagal took place in 1993, according to court documents obtained by THR, and like Spacey’s case, was ruled beyond the statute of limitations.

The LAPD announced in July that it had opened an investigation into a sexual assault claim made against “Black-ish” actor Anthony Anderson, but authorities said on Tuesday that they dropped the case after his unnamed accuser declined to be interviewed for the report she filed.

Anderson’s representatives said in July that the actor “unequivocally” disputed the woman’s claims of assault.

A look inside the marriage of the richest couple in history, Jeff and MacKenzie Bezos — who met at work, were engaged in 3 months, and own more land than almost anyone else in America (AMZN)

Jeff Bezos wife Mackenzie

Amazon CEO and founder Jeff Bezos and his wife MacKenzie were married in 1993, after meeting at D.E. Shaw & Co.
Shortly afterward, the couple relocated to Seattle to found Amazon.
MacKenzie was one of the company’s first employees.
Today, Jeff Bezos is worth $166 billion, making him the richest person in history.

Jeff Bezos wasn’t alone when he made his cross-county road trip to Seattle in 1994. And he wasn’t alone when he founded Amazon, the online retail giant some analysts now believe will be the world’s first trillion-dollar company.

His wife, MacKenzie, was there for the whole journey.

In an interview with CBS, she described watching her husband build Amazon up from scratch: “To me, watching your spouse, somebody that you love, have an adventure — what is better than that?”

Today, Bloomberg estimates Bezos is worth $166 billion — making him the richest person in history, according to CNN. He’s also topped Forbes’ annual list of the richest people on the planet for the first time ever. And, on Tuesday, Amazon followed Apple to become the second-ever US company to reach a $1 trillion valuation.
