Alec Baldwin wants a court to prove he’s
not guilty of Halyna Hutchins’s death

Original Article

Posted By: DW626, 3/19/2022 7:25:29 AM

“He affects unselfishness, but is in reality fanatically, even maniacally, self-centered.... He is childlike in his pursuit of pleasure, but shrewd and willful in his studied neglect of responsibility. His sensibilities are exquisitely tender, and yet he has a talent for causing pain...He professes universal tolerance and sweetness to all, though is willing to put his friends through shame, fear, and harm rather than see his own comfort threatened.” No, this quote does not refer to Alec Baldwin, apt though it may seem. It is drawn from an essay about Harold Skimpole, a character in Charles Dickens’ Bleak House.

He 'wants' a court to prove this ludicrous assertion. Yeah, and I 'want' Salma Hayek to return one of my many calls/e-mails/texts asking for a date. I think we have an equal chance of success. Love the Bleak House quote. I propose we change the name of the White House to that...

"Not Guilty" would require that these actions did not happen: 1) Pointing a weapon at Halyna Hutchins, 2) Pulling the trigger, 3) causing a bullet to penetrate her body, hence causing her death. It is undisputed that Baldwin met all of these conditions. As Sgt. Friday would say: "Just the facts, sir".

Ruger, a fine gun manufacturer, made a revolver, called the Ruger Blackhawk, in single action. (The hammer had to be pulled back in order to fire the revolver.) The Blackhawk single action had a design flaw, allowing accidental firing. It has been on recall since the 1960s, to correct the problem. Most of the revolvers used in Western movies were manufactured in Spain, post WWII, and they were single action. I suspect that their design had the same flaw as the Ruger Blackhawk. Putting that aside, Alec Baldwin, as the shooter, is not guilty of anything. Alec Baldwin as producer, is guilty of some level of manslaughter, for hiring an incompetent armorer, and for ignoring the existence of live ammo on set. Crew members were target practicing, probably out of boredom. The girl armorer is guilty of manslaughter, as well. She allowed live ammo on set, a mortal sin. And I suspect that she loaded some live ammo without the identifying crimp in the slug, at the request of the dead Ukranian. That makes the estate of the dead Ukranian partly liable for the injury suffered by the assistant director. (Unless he knew of the loading of live ammo without the crimp.) If any lawyers on lucianne want to object to my analysis, go ahead. Objection overruled. n.b. Some hunters/shooters reload their own ammo. The reloading requires careful measuring, crimping the casings accurately, and steady hands. I do not do my own reloading, given the requirements. discretion/valor and all that. The girl armorer should never touch a gun again, not even a Daisy Red Ryder BB gun.

Alec just wants to hear the words, "not his fault", innocent of all charges but it can't happen. He is tagged with the killing for the rest of his life accident or not a person died by his hand with another injured. Baldwin can't get around that so maybe silence should be observed here don't keep reminding us about the tragedy. Acting work must have ceased to come Balwin's way especially where firearms are involved.

Alec Baldwin will never work again as an actor, director or producer for one simple reason: he’s uninsurable. No movie gets made without all kinds of insurance coverage, and no insurance company will go near a production involving Baldwin in any capacity - not now, after all this publicity. Professionally, he’s a has-been. Personally, he’s a liar and a coward.

Alec Baldwin, as the shooter, is guilty of manslaughter. NM Stat § 30-2-3 (1996 through 1st Sess 50th Legis) 30-2-3. Manslaughter. Manslaughter is the unlawful killing of a human being without malice. B. Involuntary manslaughter consists of manslaughter committed in the commission of an unlawful act not amounting to felony, or in the commission of a lawful act which might produce death in an unlawful manner or without due caution and circumspection. Whoever commits involuntary manslaughter is guilty of a fourth degree felony. Alec Baldwin pointed the gun, Alec Baldwin cоcked the gun, Alec Baldwin pulled the trigger of the gun. The so called "design flaw" with the Ruger Blackhawk was the same with all single action designs just as Samuel Colt made them in 1872. It could it accidentally discharge IF THE HAMMER WAS STRUCK with force while down on a live round. That's why users only loaded five rounds and put the hammer down on an empty chamber. Every responsible single action user knows this. They just don't discharge by themselves. Ruger's wasn't really a safety recall, they just adapted the lock work to allow safe carry with a loaded chamber in front of the hammer. There was nothing defective with the old lock work, just morons disregarding the ancient advice to leave the chamber ahead of the firing pin empty. Baldwin would have had to pull the hammer all the way back to line the live cartridge up with the barrel and firing pin. At half cоck, there is no way it would fire. The hammer and barrel are lined up between chambers on the cylinder, so even if he pulled the trigger from half cоck it would not fire, as a cartridge would not be lined up with the firing pin on the hammer. In order to line up the chamber with the firing pin and the barrel, he had to fully cоck the gun. If he had his finger off the trigger and his thumb slipped off the hammer, it would have been caught by the half cоck notch and would not have fired. His finger would have to have been holding the trigger back in order for the hammer to fall past that safety notch. The ultimate responsibility for every negligent discharge lies with the person handling the firearm. No one else.

When I make dummy ammunition I drill holes through the side of the cartridge and through the primer hole plus paint the brass. There is no way confusion is possible. I cannot comprehend how they could confuse blanks with real ammunition. A gun going off means the results have already occurred. There is no going back. You pull that trigger your destiny has been laid down. Every time. Many years ago Chinese were exporting SKS rifles which were new copies of a very good rifle built before the AK47 was adopted. Most were very good rifles but a few were terrible. A new owner of one of those SKS rifles was at.the range, shooting his new rifle when it took off like a machine gun. Bang, bang, bang. The rifle barrel rose higher with each shot.until it went over the shooters shoulder and shot someone behind him. It was so fast he couldn't get the trigger. Since the gun was from China there was no way to sue and no one could even know who built it since the parts were built in little shops and assembled with pliers and hammers. So. Who is responsible? No one except the poor person who owned the rifle and pulled the trigger. He could in no way in his wildest dreams think he could shoot someone behind him but he pulled the trigger.

I am sure he didn't intend to kill her. It was an accident. However, it was an accident that he caused by his reckless handing of that gun. Too bad he spent all these years hating guns instead of taking an NRA gun safety class, where he would have been taught how to properly and safely handle a gun at all times. That is why there is a legal difference between murder and manslaughter (and, as #17 pointed out very clearly, this was 100% manslaughter).
