Alec Baldwin Off the Hook as New Mexico DA Drops Charges in Rust Death


Alec Baldwin is off the hook. Keystone cops aka the Santa Fe district attorney has dropped involuntary manslaughter charges in the shooting of Halyna Hutchins on the set of Rust.

After all that, 18 months, and now they say, Never mind.

The DA never had a criminal case against Baldwin, who never intended to shoot anyone. But redneck justice prevailed. Unbelievable.

Sadly, Hutchins remains dead. Nothing will bring her back.
