Alec Baldwin faces backlash from New Mexicans as manslaughter trial begins

Locals Slam Alec Baldwin as Manslaughter Trial Begins

Local Residents Express Outrage as Alec Baldwin’s Trial Begins in Santa Fe

Alec Baldwin’s involuntary manslaughter trial kicked off in Santa Fe this week, drawing a crowd of local residents who expressed their anger and frustration at the Hollywood actor. The trial stems from an incident on the set of the Western film “Rust” where Baldwin accidentally fired a real gun loaded with a live round, resulting in the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and wounding director Joel Souza.

Among the spectators at the courthouse was background actor Janelle Rogers, who held signs calling for justice for Halyna and emphasizing the importance of safety on set. Rogers, who has personal connections to the industry, criticized the lack of safety measures on film sets and blamed multiple individuals for the tragic incident.

As the trial unfolded, residents like Rachel Jarrell and Frank Winberly voiced their concerns over the lack of gun safety and accountability in the film industry. Jarrell, an advocate for stricter gun safety laws, expressed disappointment in the Baldwins’ decision to capitalize on the tragedy with their upcoming reality show.

Despite the tense atmosphere surrounding the trial, Alec and Hilaria Baldwin received a slightly warmer reception from fans after the proceedings. The couple was seen shopping and grabbing coffee in downtown Santa Fe, with Alec taking the time to sign autographs for fans.

As the trial continues, the community remains divided on Baldwin’s culpability in the shooting incident. While some believe that he should be held accountable for his actions, others argue that the responsibility lies with those in charge of gun safety on set. The outcome of the trial will likely have lasting implications for the film industry and the issue of safety on film sets.
