Alec Baldwin Charged With Involuntary Manslaughter


In today’s 24-hour and emotionally driven news cycle, stories that deal with public figures draw huge interest.

Social justice activists who support the suppression of religious and conservative speech and public access, also target leftists who end up on the collectives’ cancel culture list.

The mob has been pressuring the prosecutor in New Mexico to bring charges against Hollywood star Alec Baldwin.

Well, the wheels of justice agree as Bladwin has formally been charged with involuntary manslaughter in the fatal shooting on the set of the movie Rust.

Baldwin and the movie’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, will both face criminal charges for the October 21, 2021 shooting of Rust cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, the Santa Fe District Attorney announced Thursday.

Both Baldwin and Rust armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed faces a maximum of 18 months in prison if convicted. Dave Halls, the Assistant Director, has pleaded guilty to the charge of the negligent use of a deadly weapon.

In a statement, Baldwin’s attorney said: “This decision distorts Halyna Hutchins’ tragic death and represents a terrible miscarriage of justice. Mr. Baldwin had no reason to believe there was a live bullet in the gun — or anywhere on the movie set.”

‘He relied on the professionals with whom he worked, who assured him the gun did not have live rounds. We will fight these charges, and we will win.’

But Mary Carmack-Altwies, the First Judicial District Attorney in New Mexico, is standing firm.

In an interview after the announcement with CNN, she said Baldwin did pull the trigger – and that he ran a ‘fast and loose set’ that was plagued with safety issues.

“There was such a lack of safety and safety standards on that set. There were live rounds on set, they were mixed in with dummy rounds.”

“Nobody was checking those or at least they weren’t checking them consistently.”

“They somehow got loaded into a gun, handed off to Alec Baldwin, he didn’t check it, he didn’t do what he was supposed to do to make sure he was safe or make sure anyone else was safe.”

“He pointed the gun at Halyna Hutchins and he pulled the trigger,” she said.

She added a ‘totality of the circumstances’ led to the decision, adding: ‘This was a really fast and loose set. And that nobody was doing their job.’

While it may “have been an accident, she said Baldwin ‘doesn’t get a free pass’ because he’s a star.”

“Just because it’s an accident doesn’t mean it’s not criminal. They didn’t mean to do it, and they didn’t have the intent to kill, but it happened anyway and it happened because of more than mere negligence’

“We’ve talked to many actors, a-list and otherwise, that have said they always check their guns or they have someone check it in front of them.”

“An actor doesn’t get a free pass just because they’re an actor. Everyone’s equal under the law.”

Hannah Gutierrez-Reed also vowed to fight the charges.

In a statement, her attorneys said: “Hannah is, and has always been, very emotional and sad about this tragic accident. But she did not commit involuntary manslaughter.”

“These charges are the result of a very flawed investigation, and an inaccurate understanding of the full facts.”

“We intend to bring the full truth to light and believe Hannah will be exonerated of wrongdoing by a jury.”

Prosecutors say they are confident with the decision. It was welcomed by Halyna’s family, who issued a statement through their attorney.

‘We want to thank the Santa Fe Sheriff and the District Attorney for concluding their thorough investigation and determining that charges of involuntary manslaughter are warranted for the killing of Halyna Hutchins with conscious disregard for human life.

“Our independent investigation also supports charges are warranted. It is a comfort to the family that, in New Mexico, no one is above the law.”

“We support the charges, will fully cooperate with this prosecution, and fervently hope the justice system works to protect the public and hold accountable those who break the law.”

In announcing the charges, special prosecutor Andrea Reeb said: ‘If any one of these three people—Alec Baldwin, Hannah Gutierrez-Reed or David Halls—had done their job, Halyna Hutchins would be alive today. It’s that simple.’
