  1. Negligent Homicide and serious assault with a firearm aren’t usually referred to as “incidents” which are incidental acts. The msm and their mob are all over this murder.

  2. Susan St James is the only one who stated the truth….WHY was this TFM pointing the gun at a production assistant? WTF wasn’t he arrested?

  3. It would appear that if you are in any way connected to the Clinton’s your life expectancy has a high chance of being drastically reduced. Regardless of the ‘degrees of separation’ there is. Just saying.

  4. “he had spoken with Baldwin and said the actor was supportive”?? Supportive? If that the way to describe someone who has just killed your wife?

  5. Police have announced it was a “live round” meaning a bullet, that is not a “prop gun”
    Very strange. I smell a satanist sacrifice here. The Clinton connection is really not surprising. The Clintons are two of the most prolific serial killers in history.

  6. he is a lazy pig…anyone useing any type of weapon and or fire arm should be in control and in charge of that said weapon and have the proper training and be tested on them before working with them.He him self should have cleared the six shooter and personally checked the rounds before and after each use.He is a lazy pig…in all his years he has`nt learned how to safely arm and disarm a fire arm.It`s a little pee shooter six shot old school hand gun.It seem more like a hidden agenda genicide run everyones DNA I bet she is a DNA grand child of howard hughes Via the sperm bank of which I gave sperm to in 1978 for a jewish doctor and christo.I have howard hughes great grand babys all over the world as Iàm a child of howard hughes and jean peters hidden and covered up.I have never got to meet most of my DNA kids but many of them have been murded most when they find out who they are.Howard was killed by drakes CBS and the hollywood studios stealing his trillions in patent royuitys.He is a fratty hazer and she wanted to be a pledge.Dirty deedSS done dirt cheap

  7. TOTAL MONKEY SHINE`SS run her DNA.They still have a genicide agenda just look at native americans getting murdered off still no one seems to care about that either

  8. Now the msm are revealing the shocking details of the female who handed Baldwin a live gun that resulted in the shooting. As if. No the fact is he pointed the gun at her, aimed it to kill, most likely because its very hard to accidentally kill someone with a single shot unless it’s very well aimed, and pulled the trigger The ONLY way that can happen is if he was fantasising about killing the bitch. That’s all. So there was intent. As the Bible says even what you imagine you will be judged for.

  9. DEUTCH ex CIA corruption but still in powerful groups with clintons robert hanssen EX FBI corruption 4life-the rich eat the poor since forever genicide of the indian nation still with endless rapes and murders of native american females at ten times the whites

    • Baldwin is responsible for aiming a gun that he did not inspect at someone… and pulling the trigger.

      How is that the prop mgrs fault?
