There’s been a lot of hoopla around the Alec Baldwin “Rust” shooting, where he shot and killed his cinematographer. I didn’t think he’d be charged, just because I am jaded and think all scumbag elites can get away with murder. But he was charged, and afterward, left-wingers and Hollywood elites came running to his defense, saying this was overreach and an accident, and how could Alec of all people had stopped this, bla bla bla. Well, Alec was finally formally charged, and now, after those files were charged, we’re now learning more about what was really happening on the set of “Rust,” and this does not bode well for Alec…
Newser reported that Alec Baldwin has, as expected, been formally charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the New Mexico set of Rust in 2021. Santa Fe District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies filed charges against Baldwin and armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed on Tuesday, the Santa Fe New Mexican reports. The DA’s office says jurors might have the option of finding the actor and Gutierrez-Reed, who was tasked with ensuring gun safety on the set, guilty of the lesser charge of negligent use of a deadly weapon. According to a statement of probable cause, Baldwin did not attend pre-filming firearms training and only had minimal training after filming began, though Gutierrez-Reed had requested more.
According to the statement, Baldwin only received around 30 minutes training in a session that was supposed to last an hour because he “was distracted and talking on his cell phone to his family during the training.” Baldwin and Gutierrez-Reed have both maintained their innocence in the fatal shooting during rehearsals on Oct. 21, 2021, the AP reports. In a statement released before charges were filed, attorney Luke Nikas said Baldwin “had no reason to believe there was a live bullet in the gun—or anywhere on the movie set.” Baldwin and Gutierrez-Reed could each face a sentence of up to 18 months, though that could go up to five years if they are convicted on a count that includes a firearms enhancement.
A probable cause statement against Guitierrez-Reed states that she was “reckless” in ensuring set safety and “failed to correct Baldwin from committing the dangerous and reckless safety violations by pointing the weapon at/towards people and by having his finger on the trigger.”
It really doesn’t look good, that you shot and killed a wife and mother, after treating your “gun safety” like a boring chore.
And the next part of this that is really bad for Alec,and Guitierrez-Reed is that the assistant director has plead guilty, and will now likely flip on both of them, thus giving the prosecutor their “case.”
