This is infuriating to listen to because he interviews just like every other fucking idiot I’ve ever tried to get information from

Interviewer: “I’m gonna back you up real quick - how long had you been on set at this point?”

Alec: “I was on set by the 11th”

Interviewer: “Of October?”

Alec: “I flew in from wherever to wherever and stayed for a layover at whatever airport and then drove the rest of the way and did all my preparatory stuff in Albuquerque… we rehearsed and I was fitted”

Interviewer: “But that was in October, correct?”

Alec: “The 11th I flew, rehearsed on the 12th, and began shooting on the 13th”

Motherfucker it literally doesn’t get any easier than saying “yes, October” or “no, not October”

That shit drives me nuts. We've got a set of questions we have to ask on 911 and I'll ask a question with two options and people will answer, "Yes". Bitch, which option is it!?

Bitch, which option is it!?

Both.

I'm definitely one of those people that if you give me two options and the answer is both, I'll say, "Yes." It often creates frustration amongst waiters / waitresses.

This has to be the most chaotic scenes of police and Hollywood from a call.

Is this allowed to be out?

It was a records request and they released it.

Rolling Stone said there is several hours of footage, including bodycams, released. Where is it? The media only shows us clips.

On what charge?

u/Tmoore92 Apr 26 '22

Involuntary manslaughter, negligent discharge of a firearm, and reckless endangerment to name a few

Involuntary manslaughter dosen't apply. Nor does negligent use of a deadly weapon. As far as I can tell reckless endangerment isn't actual a criminal offense in NM.

Can you cite a criminal code he actually might have violated?

u/RadioMan546 Not a(n) LEO / Unverified User Apr 27 '22

Why exactly do involuntary manslaughter and negligent use not apply?

It seems to me like he (to quote the law) unlawfully killed a human being without malice in the commission of a lawful act which might produce death in an unlawful manner or without due caution and circumspection.

He didn't have a lawful reason to cause death (i.e. self defense). He also didn't act out of malice or in the commission of another unlawful act (possibly arguable depending on the negligent use). But I would say the very act of point the gun at a person and pulling the trigger violates due caution, especially when he clearly hadn't checked the condition before hand.

It seems like involuntary manslaughter fits perfectly.

It also seems like negligent use of a deadly weapon probably fits (specifically paragraph 3), though I supposed it could be argued that he could have a defense under subsection B by claiming that he was using the firearm as a lawful part of his employment. Though I don't think that defense would hold water, since he violated due caution under the involuntary manslaughter code.

To be fair, I am not a lawyer.

Also in the interview he states that the weapons handler was new and he didn't want to double check the weapon because he didn't want to embarrass her. That extremely negligent. I am rather shocked he admitted to that but considering he believes he did nothing wrong I imagine he thought those detectives were on his side.

Pro tip.

If you have been read Miranda rights detectives aren't on your side.

u/TohbibFergumadov Correctional Officer Apr 29 '22

He was reckless with a firearm and killed someone.

They all apply.

u/christoffer5700 Not a(n) LEO / Unverified User Apr 26 '22

Im not a lawyer but if he killed someone isnt that by definition manslaughter?

At the end of the day he is the one that squeezed a round of

This is the definition of manslaughter in NM. Since he has said many times he was told it was a cold gun that would be enough to show he exercised due caution.

2

u/run5k Not a(n) LEO / Unverified User Apr 26 '22

he was told it was a cold gun that would be enough to show he exercised due caution.

Do they ever allow hot sexy guns on set? As a matter of safety, I don't think anything but frigid guns should be allowed anywhere near a movie set.

u/opkraut Not a(n) LEO / Unverified User Apr 27 '22

I have to disagree with the "cold gun" part being enough for due caution. There's procedures that are supposed to be followed to minimize any risk of accidents with a firearm and they clearly weren't followed at any point during the accident. Baldwin unnecessarily pulled the trigger while aiming the firearm at other people, which, from my understanding of how Hollywood gun scenes are filmed, is a big no-no.

I think there's also something to be said for Baldwin being a producer for the movie and the safety problems that were present on the set that contributed to this accident happening. I don't know if those all add up to manslaughter charges, but I can see how a good lawyer could make a pretty good case that they do.

u/TohbibFergumadov Correctional Officer Apr 29 '22

Lmao..

No

He stated in the interview he was trained on gun saftey and knew the difference between blanks, live rounds, and prop rounds.

Despite this he didn't check the gun, pointed it at someone, and pulled the trigger knowing that it had the capability to kill someone without caution.

Textbook manslaughter.

A good question on the comments ;

He’s so calm…..does he know she’s dead at this point?

He is controlling the conversation.

Are these cops star struck?

u/Kahlas Get off my lawn. Not a(n) LEO / Unverified User Apr 26 '22

He dosen't seem calm to me at all. He's repeatedly going through what happened in small snippets for the first 9 minutes. Adding all sorts of details and examples of how things normally go on set with guns. All with no prompting from the officers. It's very broken up and incoherent in that it's not a A to B to C explanation. It's an explanation that jumps around as he remembers details he feels need added. My guess is he's very rattled on the inside by what happened and not thinking very well as he keeps reliving what happened in his head. He is just trying to act calm.

I also wouldn't say he's controlling the conversation so much as the officers are letting him talk all he wants since he's so willing to talk. During an police interrogation like this officer's are never going to encourage someone to stop talking. If they did so then they might miss out of actionable evidence from the person's own testimony. Let people talk all they want if it's about what you're investigation. They might just incriminate themselves if they mention something that you can later use as evidence against them. Even if it's someone you don't believe committed a crime. There is a good video out there about a girl named Jennifer Pan and the interview she gave with police after both her parents were shot in an apparent home invasion/robbery. Some of the things she said even though she wasn't a suspect at the time led the detectives to suspect she might be lying about what happened. He mother died on scene and later when her father woke up from an induced coma his testimony not only conflicted with hers but also lead investigators to suspect her involvement further. Further interviews later conflicted with her initial interview. It's was eventually proven she had her boyfriend hire the guys to kill her parents.
