  • Florida Republican's aide sacked after suggesting shooting survivors are actors

    Golocal247.com news

    A Florida congressman's aide has been fired after spreading a conspiracy theory that some of the Flordia school shooting victims calling for gun control were actors. Benjamin Kelly, an aide to Republican state representative Shawn Harrison, sent an email to a Tampa Bay Times journalist claiming that two survivors of the Parkland tragedy, speaking up after 17 of their classmates were killed in a school shooting, were not real students. The 61-year-old wrote: "Both kids in the picture are not students [at Stoneman Douglas] but actors that travel to various crisis when they happen." The newspaper reported that after it asked for evidence for this allegation, the aide sent a YouTube conspiracy video targeting one of the students. After publication of  Kelly's claims, he was fired. Harrison said he was “appalled at and strongly denounce his comments”, adding that he was “sorry for any pain this has caused the grieving families of this tragedy”. He tweeted: "I do not share his opinion and he did so without my knowledge." Here's the email. I asked for more information to back up the claim and was sent another email that linked to a YouTube conspiracy video. pic.twitter.com/VRSVOcjj3E— Alex Leary (@learyreports) February 20, 2018 Kelly apologised for his actions, saying that he "made a mistake whereas I tried to inform a reporter of information relating to his story regarding a school shooting". He added: "This was not my responsibility. I meant no disrespect to the students or parents of Parkland." Tonight Mr. Kelly was terminated from his position as my District Secretary. I am appalled at and strongly denounce his comments about the Parkland students. I am again sorry for any pain this has caused the grieving families of this tragedy.— Shawn Harrison (@Shawnfor63) February 21, 2018 Robert Runcie, Broward County school superintendent, told CNN: “These are absolutely students at Stoneman Douglas. They’ve been there. I can verify that.” He said the comments were "outrageous and disrespectful" and "part of what's wrong with the narrative in this country". Jaclyn Corin, the school's 11th-grade class president, wrote on Twitter: "We are KIDS — not actors. We are KIDS that have grown up in Parkland all of our lives. We are KIDS who feared for our lives while someone shot up our school. We are KIDS working to prevent this from happening again. WE ARE KIDS." Republican Senator Marco Rubio condemned the conspiracy theorists, tweeting: "Claiming some of the students on tv after #Parkland are actors is the work of a disgusting group of idiots with no sense of decency."

    The high school shooting in South Florida which left 17 students and adults dead was reportedly greeted by the White House as a handy distraction from all the messes it had been struggling to contain, ranging from claims by yet another woman that she’d had an extramarital affair with the president to the bungled firing of a top aide accused of physical abuse by two former wives. Then the next day he lambasted the FBI, saying it had dropped the ball in Florida because it spent too much time probing Russian influence in the 2016 election. If the kids at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School weren’t livid enough, that really set them off.

  • FBI charge British engineer with murdering wife on yacht in Caribbean

    Golocal247.com news

      A British engineer has been charged by the FBI with murdering his wife after she disappeared at sea as they cruised around the Caribbean on a belated honeymoon. Lewis Bennett, 41, who holds dual British and Australian citizenship and is originally from Poole, Dorset, was accused of second-degree murder over the death of Isabella Hellmann, 41, on May 15 last year. He was charged in a Miami court where, according to local television station WPTV, he was also sentenced to seven months in jail for transporting valuable rare coins. After his wife's disappearance Bennett told investigators she was lost at sea when their 37ft catamaran, Surf into Summer, was struck by an unknown object near the Bahamas. According to to the FBI Bennett said he had gone below deck and left Ms Hellmann above to keep watch. He described being woken up at 1am by a jolt and the vessel was taking on water. Bennett told investigators he could not find his wife and had to abandon ship on a life raft. In an affidavit FBI special agent James Kelley said the bureau now believed Bennett "knowingly and unlawfully killed" Ms Hellmann. The FBI affidavit ​claimed ​Bennett​ ​​had damaged the inside of the boat causing it to flood. Isabella Hellman and her British husband Lewis Bennett. She went missing during a honeymoon sailing trip. When Ms Hellmann disappeared the couple, who had a daughter now aged 17 months, were sailing back from Havana, Cuba to their home in Delray Beach, Florida. The daughter was not on the boat. Bennett made an SOS call in the early hours and was later spotted by a US Coast Guard helicopter. He was rescued alone from the life raft. The search for Ms Hellmann was called off three days later and her body was never found. When Bennett was rescued nine plastic tubes of silver coins were found in the life raft. They included 158 English “Year of the Horse” one-ounce silver coins and 77 Canadian Maple Leaf coins, worth about £3,200. The coins were among a batch that had been reported stolen from another boat in St Martin the previous year. Bennett had been a crew member on that boat. According to the owner of the boat the total value of the coins stolen in 2016 was around $100,000. After he was rescued Bennett said of his wife: "She is my soulmate. I thought we were going to be together forever. "I understand why they have to investigate and that is fair enough. I have got nothing to hide. They have to do what they have to do.”​
