In footage shown at the trial of the film's armourer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, Mr Baldwin is also seen telling her to reload the gun more quickly. She denies involuntary manslaughter and tampering with evidence. Mr Baldwin was holding the gun when it went off but has said he didn't pull the trigger. He has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter.

    "Negligent acts" by armourer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, 26, led to Halyna Hutchins' death during the production of Rust, prosecutors told the court. Ms Gutierrez-Reed's lawyers laid the blame at the feet of Mr Baldwin, who they argued violated basic safety. Mr Baldwin, 65, is also charged over Hutchins' death on 21 October 2021. Ms Gutierrez-Reed has pleaded not guilty to charges of involuntary manslaughter and tampering with evidence over the fatality during the production of the Western in the US state of New Mexico. During opening statements for the trial in Santa Fe on Thursday, prosecutors argued that the defendant's "unprofessional"...

    A 23-year-old Florida mother-of-two has been shot and killed following an argument over Christmas presents.

    Twitter is apparently very selective about its disapproval of violence, indicating that some violence is better than other violence. If the right person threatens violence against the right person, it is safe on Twitter's platform. The tweeted reaction from Baldwin's followers was mixed. Some mocked or criticized him, while others chuckled, offering additional, grimmer enhancements to his dream.Busy plotting U.S. Constitution First Amendment suppression on a mass scale internationally, Twitter executives apparently were quite pleased that a person of Baldwin's character implemented their vision so readily. The 75 million deplorables who voted for President Donald J. Trump have still yet...

    Five Senate Democrats could retire ahead of the 2024 elections in America, relinquishing their seats to fresh faces as Republicans seek to gain control of the upper chamber. Following the retirement announcements of two prominent Senate Democrats earlier this year, the question remains over which other senators will step aside and forgo what could be a potentially bruising round of elections for the party as Democrats seek to defend a majority of the seats up for grabs next cycle. Last month, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., became the latest senator to announce she would not seek re-election in 2024, following in...
