Trigger discipline?
 
2021-12-06 5:25:44 PM  
Any time there is any criticism of either him or his wife Hillary in Twitter comments he deletes his account.  Yet he is one of the first to criticize and bully people and policies HE doesn't agree with.

The majority of the comments and feedback on his interview have been negative.  I think he was expecting sympathy.  Probably stating he feels no responsibility for killing Halyna has a lot to do with it.  His PR and attorney should have advised him better, or maybe they did and he didn't listen.

Dude needs to go away for awhile. I know he wants to tell his side, but someone who loves him needs to sit him down and tell him this.

Shut the fark up, raise your 15 babies and stay out of the spotlight.

Most people understand you shouldn't be held responsible. Until you said you didn't pull the trigger. Even if it's true, it sounds self serving and beside the point.

Do yourself a favor and only say two things in public about this incident.

1. You are praying for the families of those who died and those who were wounded. You were close to these people and your heart goes out to them.

2. You are willing to cooperate to the fullest to find out who is responsible for this terrible accident.

That's it.  And do this for a long time. Longer than Chris Delia and Bryan Callen not being on their podcast.

Longer than Louise CK before he started doing sets again.

Let the public garner some empathy for you out of the spotlight.

(Weighing the options motion)  Talented performer ----  Complete asshole

Currently tilting toward complete asshole, to the point where "Talented performer" doesn't even register.

Advice is to shut the fark up and go away for a while.  Perhaps shuttering his Twitter is the first step.

I still think there's a chance he will be personally liable for involuntary manslaughter, under the logic that he should have personally checked the gun (like anybody outside of Hollywood would).

People fail to realize that a lawyer's #1 enemy in the courtroom is not the Judge, nor is it opposing counsel.  It's the lawyer's client.  The #1 piece of advice every client MUST follow is to SHUT UP and to do that OFTEN.  PERIOD.

I will straight up tell anyone that I've enjoyed a lot of Alec Baldwin's performances; however, as people have pointed out he is a big-time bully who tucks tail and runs once his hypocrisy is put on full display.

Geotpf: I still think there's a chance he will be personally liable for involuntary manslaughter, under the logic that he should have personally checked the gun (like anybody outside of Hollywood would).


It would be interesting to see his roles conflated - as a producer (especially one actually on set and aware of what was going on), he's responsible for the conditions that led to poor safety on set.  As an actor, he's only responsible for holding a prop gun and was right to trust the 'armorer' who handed it to him and declared it safe.

But because he's the same person... is Baldwin the actor responsible for knowing Baldwin the producer had a part in creating an environment where the actual armorer left, and then responsible for listening to someone who wasn't actually the armorer?

I live on Earth.  And I don't believe I stated anywhere that his attorney advised him to take responsibility.  Any attorney worth a grain of salt would have advised his or her client to not do the interview at all.

That's the thing, doing these public interviews does not help him.

That's the whole point I was making.

If he had a good friend like me, I'd help him do everything in the world, we just wouldn't do it in public for a very very long time.

The internet is full of communities. These communities are like galaxies in the universe. They even have their own stars. Sometimes these stars go supernova. Do the other galaxies care or even notice? For the most part no. There might be some lifeforms in the other galaxies peering at the supernova through a telescope, that's about it. What does this mean? I don't know but I thought it sounded deep.

kryptoknightmare: So you expected his attorney to advise his client to publicly state in a televised interview that he believed he was personal responsible for the death and injury of several people? What planet do you live on?


Yes?

That's very much what his lawyer has told him to do, I can almost guarantee.  You're supposed to seem as contrite as possible and 100% confirm your immediate involvement in things if you're going for an affirmative defense, which appears to be what they're doing.  Especially since he was funding the film and involved in producing it, and thus probably ultimately responsible for the underlying conditions that led to the accidental parts of this as well as the immediate negligence.

I mean, as others have pointed out, "don't do interviews and shut the fark up in general while I work" was probably a better option, but since it apparently wasn't going to happen something on the order of "I feel awful about my part in this and it was horrible" etc, worded in such a way as to not admit actual legal liability and denying actual intent to cause willful harm, is exactly what he should have been saying.

If you're ever in, say, a horrible car accident that kills someone, here's a tip: do not go with "I deny everything, it wasn't me, I was in another state, I feel no guilt about this at all, that dead kid and his crying puppy can fark right off to hell", that will make it much more likely you get found culpable for something.  You'll be instructed to roll with something more like "This is horrible, and I keep wishing there was something I could have done, or that I'd noticed them sooner or just driven better to avoid this terrible tragedy.  Truly, I feel like it's my fault even if the evidence says otherwise."

// I assume he did go over the response with his lawyers and just fumbled the execution, kinda feels like he had a story set up and just farked up on delivering it.

Cooperate with the investigation, do an interview and walk away for a year before you even think about deciding what your next move is.  And get some goddamned therapy.

Look, any time someone famous accidentally shoots someone, much less kills them, it's farking news. Don't you remember Cheney shooting his friend in the face?

This story would have legs outside the political tug-o-war. Jesus, Harrison Ford crashed a plane and he was the only person in it and people dragged him for endangering people on the golf course he crashed into. No one died, so that story didn't have the same longevity, but it was here on Fark for a bit. Phil Spector? Went for YEARS. Robert Blake? Same thing. None of those had a political angle, and outside Ford none of those people were as famous as Alec Baldwin.

To suggest that this story is only in the news because Baldwin is a known left-wing actor is bullshiat. It's in the news because an actor killed someone on set, intentionally or not, and that's farking news because it shouldn't happen.

It's difficult to find non-paywalled sources, but I found one:

https://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/fl-​x​pm-2006-02-14-0602130420-story.html

Cheney had a hunting license, he didn't have the $7 sticker/tag to allow him to shoot game birds. He was never going to be arrested or have his gun confiscated for that. For that matter, most hunters caught hunting without a license are ticketed, not arrested. Maybe their guns are confiscated, I can't find any stats.

So I'm glad to put your mind at ease, he was treated like everybody else. Now you can correct the narrative so you don't keep telling the story wrong in the future :)

I get it, I'm just saying Baldwin is not liable for anything other than being a careless jack-hole at worst. Trump actually put out a tweet suggesting Baldwin did this intentionally, and his command of right-wing media has ensured that this moron narrative has become something approaching "speculative fact". This has helped push the narrative that Baldwin must be charged with murder or some shiat.

Cheney had the same problem. His pal was killed in a hunting accident and he was faced with conspiracy theories about how he actually had something to do with it. After the investigations it was clear that Cheney probably had no intentional hand in his lawyer's death. It was likely an accident.

Baldwin supposedly killed someone because of an on-set accident, and until it becomes clear that there was a conspiracy to actually plant a bullet in the prop gun, framing Baldwin for "murder" at the ultimate expense of the life of the poor young woman who died, this is all just team-sports politics.

Cheney had a hunting license, he didn't have the $7 sticker/tag to allow him to shoot game birds. He was never going to be arrested or have his gun confiscated for that. For that matter, most hunters caught hunting without a license are ticketed, not arrested. Maybe their guns are confiscated, I can't find any stats.

So I'm glad to put your mind at ease, he was treated like everybody else. Now you can correct the narrative so you don't keep telling the story wrong in the future :)


There was also allegedly alcohol involved. Taking guns from non-licensed hunters is a fairly big thing in Texas. Hell, I've seen a game warden take someone's fishing pole for fishing without a license.

Well fishing is serious business :)

On that note, does anyone know what happened to Cheney's gun? I would imagine initially the Secret Service would have grabbed it in case there was a lawsuit.

I don't know. I know the game wardens didn't take it. I do seem to remember it was a 28 gauge of some sort that only comes as part of a pretty expensive collection
