In case you have not noticed, we are in a state of legal warfare and possibly soon enough, a full-fledged one.
Stop giving aid and comfort to the Enemy. Stop giving them the benefit of the doubt, you all look like ass kissers.
When you saw what was done to Kyle Rittenhouse and then saw how the mass murder in Waukesha has been memory-holed into oblivion. but go all teary-eyed saying Alec Baldwin is innocent because he was following instructions, you are a colossal dumbass who swears we are living in Mayberry USA times.
Alec Baldwin was the producer of the movie. It was in his power to stop production and fire the armorer and anybody else after the first incident of weapons mishandling was reported. He chose to continue, and more cases happened to the point crews quit because of safety concerns. He probably could not find a cheaper armorer/prop master and kept the one he had putting profits over safety.
And at the end of the day, it was his hand operating the gun given by an unexperienced armorer he hired and kept regardless of previous security fuck-ups, that killed another human being. And even if he was not the producer, he is the star of the film and has the clout to stop the project till safety concerns were addressed, but again he chose not to do a thing about it.
Yes, I heard the excuse that the use of guns in Movie Business is different from how we use guns in real life or competitive game and that is true. In any of the action shooting sports, you have a dangerous negligent discharge, you get disqualified on the spot and invited to evacuate the premises. I guess in the movie business you don’t have to stop till you send somebody to the morgue.
Acceptable loses, Hollywood style.
But I am the unfair asshole because I want to see Alec Baldwin wearing orange and forced to suck male appendages to survive in prison for killing another human being.
