UPDATE: ALEC BALDWIN SHOOTING: THIS MAY NOT BE AN ACCIDENT, IT MAY BE NEGLIGENT HOMICIDE -- LABOR/UNION ISSUES PRIOR TO SHOOTING.
It appears that media darling and progressive socialist democrat anti-gun crusading actor Alec Baldwin is about to get a dose of reality…
Sheriff: Alec Baldwin Discharged Prop Firearm That Left Director in Critical Condition and Cinematographer Dead
Director of Photography Halyna Hutchins, 42, was injured Thursday when the prop gun was “discharged” by Baldwin, the film’s producer and star, authorities said. She was transported by helicopter to the University of New Mexico Hospital, where she was pronounced dead, the sheriff’s department said.
The second victim was the film’s director, Joel Souza, 48, who was taken by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center. He was in critical condition, Juan Ríos, spokesman for the sheriff’s office told The Hollywood Reporter.
[Sheriff’s Spokesman Juan] Ríos said an active investigation was underway and no charges have been filed.
“According to investigators it appears that the scene being filmed involved the use of a prop firearm when it was discharged,” the sheriff’s department said in a statement. “Detectives are investigating how and what type of projectile was discharged.” <Source>
The investigation will reveal under what circumstances Baldwin may have pointed a prop weapon in the direction of his director and cinematographer, who are generally behind the scenes. Also, why did the set’s 1st Assistant Director and armorer/prop-master not check the weapon before handing it to the actor before the scene? Both are charged with on-set safety and the use of hazardous props and materials.
Hypocrisy abounds as anti-gun advocates earn a substantial living by often portraying outlaws who deliberately and maliciously kill people…
Alyssa Milano, Alec Baldwin, Amy Schumer Help Launch Anti-NRA Campaign
The new initiative aims to advocate for gun control and to chip away at the National Rifle Association’s political influence. <Source>
Perhaps if Baldwin had attended the introductory NRA safety course, he would have not accidentally shot two crew members…
(1) Always treat a firearm as if it was loaded.
(2) Never point a firearm at a person you did not intend to kill.
I remember Baldwin making fun of Vice President Dick Cheney’s accidental shooting of a hunting companion. Or, more recently, commenting about a police officer-involved shooting where he tweeted, “I wonder how it must feel to wrongfully kill someone...”.
It is homicide when someone is killed, and Alec Baldwin is reported to have pulled the trigger. Therefore, even if Baldwin is innocent and the shooting was accidental, charge him with negligent homicide and leave it to the jury to absolve him. Isn’t that how progressive justice works?
We are awaiting the results of the investigation.
We are so screwed.
