Alec Baldwin is one of the most liberal actors that currently works in Hollywood. His strong anti second amendment stances are appalling to most right wing Americans. Yet when faced with murder charges, he puts on the acting hat and has avoided public condemnation over the incident.
Daily Mail reports. New Mexico prosecutors have indicated they may charge Alec Baldwin over the fatal shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of his movie Rust last year, after the actor handed over his cellphone to be considered as evidence.
In a letter to the state’s financial board, asking for funding to prosecute the high profile case, Santa Fe District Attorney District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies said she was ‘ready’ to file charges against four people.
She stopped short of confirming the charges she planned to bring, but said was ‘certainly looking all the homicide statutes and any gun statutes under New Mexico criminal code’.
This news comes after the FBI announced their conclusion in the firearm testing process.
Next news Network previously reported. An FBI forensic report obtained Friday found that the gun used in the “Rust” shooting could not have been fired without pulling the trigger. Baldwin shot cinematographer Halyna Hutchins last year while producing and starring in the Western. Despite believing he was handling a “cold gun,” a live bullet struck Hutchins and killed her. Also wounded in the shooting was the film’s director, Joel Souza. The FBI report shows that the firearm used in the shooting, a .45 Colt (.45 Long Colt) caliber F.lli Pietta single-action revolver, could not have fired without the trigger being pulled. According to the report, the gun could not fire without a trigger pull with the hammer in the quarter- and half-cock positions. The report stated that as long as the working internal components were intact and functional, the gun could not be fired without pulling the trigger with the hammer fully cocked.
Alec Baldwin was caught lying about how he handled firearms, tried to blame the gun and the FBI shot his attempted lies down. We hope justice is served in this cause, and charges are brought against whoever committed the crime.
