‘Rust’ armorer sentenced to 18 months for fatal shooting

Hannah Gutierrez, the chief weapons handler for the Western movie “Rust,” has been sentenced to 18 months in prison after the fatal shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins by Alec Baldwin.

The incident occurred during the filming of the movie “Rust” when actor Alec Baldwin discharged a prop firearm, fatally injuring Hutchins and wounding director Joel Souza.

Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, the armorer responsible for handling firearms on the set, faced charges of involuntary manslaughter.

Fatal shooting

The court’s decision comes after a lengthy investigation into the circumstances surrounding the tragic event. Gutierrez-Reed’s sentencing reflects the legal accountability for safety lapses on film sets and the severe consequences of negligence in handling firearms.

In March, Gutierrez, 27, was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter for mistakenly loading a live round into a revolver Baldwin was using on a Santa Fe, New Mexico, movie set, as reported by Reuters.

“You alone turned a safe weapon into a lethal weapon,” Judge Mary Marlowe Sommer told Gutierrez as she handed down the sentence.

Baldwin’s trial is set for July 10th after a grand jury indicted him on a charge of involuntary manslaughter in January.

A recent study suggests that EVs and hybrids are more likely to be involved in pedestrian collisions compared to traditional internal combustion engine vehicles.

One possible explanation for this phenomenon is the quieter operation of electric vehicles at lower speeds, which can catch pedestrians off guard, particularly those who are visually impaired or distracted.

To counter this issue, all new EVs in Australia will be outfitted with AVAS – an audible alert to pedestrians to indicate a EV is headed in their direction.

China conducts ‘punishment’ war games near Taiwan

Published

on

China initiated military ‘punishment’ exercises in the waters surrounding Taiwan in response to the newly inaugurated President Lai Ching-te.

These drills come amid escalating tensions in the region, with Beijing asserting its sovereignty over Taiwan, denouncing the inauguration of President Lai Ching-te and labelling this one of several “separatist acts”, as reported by Reuters.

These military manoeuvres are seen as a show of force and a warning to Taiwan and its supporters against any moves perceived as challenging China’s territorial claims.

President Lai has repeatedly offered talks with China but has been rebuffed.

He says only Taiwan’s people can decide their future, and rejects Beijing’s sovereignty claims.
