Word has finally come down regarding the shooting of the cinematographer on the set or "Rust."
Actor Alec Baldwin will be charged for his role in the shooting.
Reports now say that Baldwin will be charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter.
Mistakes Were Made
Baldwin has always maintained that he did nothing wrong, although he appears to have violated basic gun safety laws on the set.
Just watch this interview he did, overly dramatic, and how dismissive he is with his wife during the interview…
And here is some video footage of the interview with the police…
He was far from the only one, but he was the man who ultimately pulled the trigger, so regardless of what he says, the onus of making sure the gun was safe to operate falls on him.
He was the one who aimed and pulled the trigger that led to the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injuring director Joel Souza.
Experts now say that the biggest mistake that Baldwin made in this ordeal was doing his interview with George Stephanopoulos when he detailed his version of what happened, outright denying that he ever pulled the trigger.
Former U.S. Assistant Attorney Neama Rahman stated, "The interview was a mistake. I'm sure [his lawyer] did not want Baldwin to do the interview. But Baldwin or his PR team ignored his advice."
That is what happens when you are an elitist and believe your stature puts you above all else.
Brand expert Eric Schiffer added, "He hurt himself early on in unimaginable ways with the public who thought, 'Why would any adult think it would be OK to aim a gun at anyone, let alone have it go off?'
"And the other challenge for Baldwin is this claim that he never pulled the trigger, which is seen by the public as a big lie. Not only was it horrifyingly dumb, but it defied gun physics."
The gun that Baldwin had was tested in the quarter and half-cock positions and the only way it would fire is if the trigger was pulled. To that point, Schiffer said that Baldwin made people feel as though they were "suckers," so there will be no public empathy for him.
