I remember one tv shootout where the one bad guy for fired over ten shots and the cops picked up his gun and said he had a bullet left in the gun and the other cop said something about he was sure he counted all six bullets fired...

Nolte: Dershowitz Says Death on Alec Baldwin Set ‘Likely’ a ‘Homicide’

z“It is likely, therefore, that the killing of Halyna Hutchins could constitute a homicide — that is, a criminal killing,” Alan Dershowitz writes at The Hill. “The remaining questions are who might be criminally responsible for the killing and what degree of homicide fits the evidence?”
 
It seems clear that Alec Baldwin was not aware that he was firing a gun capable of expelling a lethal projectile. But his role reportedly was not limited to passively being an actor; he may have had some responsibility as one of several producers of the film. The nature of the role of producers varies from film to film, and it is unlikely that Baldwin’s role included responsibility for set safety. But some may think that it was not simply enough for him to accept the word of an assistant director about the gun’s safety, that he perhaps should have independently inspected the gun before firing it. It is unlikely, however, that such an omission would result in criminal responsibility.
 
Others on the set almost certainly bore greater responsibility, and their roles should be investigated, their responsibilities pinpointed. Before anyone is charged with a crime, there must be evidence beyond a reasonable doubt of individual criminal culpability. Just because there was a crime, it does not necessarily follow that there is enough evidence to charge any particular individual.
 
Also, a legitimate accident, which is what this is, does not protect you from criminal liability. Regardless of intent or malice, negligence and recklessness that result in the loss of life can still result in a criminal charge.

How do the bad guy always have infinite billets where the cops always run out? I just watched a ridiculous scenario on NCIS LA where an entire team more experienced agents were wiped out by a few rogue German arms dealers. From watching cop shows I know they would never leave themselves exposed like they did.  I can’t believe I still watch that show.

It sounds like manslaughter if there was no intent.

some bloviator on the radio named curtis placed all the blame on the actor involved, when in fact it is probably the case that baldwin didn't really know enough about guns to have done much differently.
