Top Updates: Astros close out Red Sox in Game 6 of ALCS, return to World Series for third time in five seasons 2021

Capping a decade like no other in baseball history, the Houston Astros are returning to the World Series, aiming to win the club’s second championship, one that would shine a little bit brighter than the original.

From shameless losers to industry innovators, from dominant champions to cheating chumps, the Astros took the next step in their unprecedented arc Friday night, getting a second dominant performance from an unheralded starter in as many games to defeat the Boston Red Sox, 5-0, and capture the American League Championship Series in six games.

They advance to face either the Atlanta Braves – back here at Minute Maid Park – or the Los Angeles Dodgers in the World Series with Game 1 on Tuesday evening.

“We feel like we deserve this,” says second baseman Jose Altuve, whose eighth-inning home run in Game 4 turned the series trajectory, “and we’re together in this.”

A date with the Dodgers would only intensify the grim feelings associated with the club’s electronic sign-stealing scandal, which boosted the 2017 champions all season and through a bitterly-contested seven-game slugfest with the Dodgers.

Since Houston’s organizational indiscretions – from top baseball executive Jeff Luhnow and manager A.J. Hinch, both fired in January 2020, down to the players – were revealed in November 2019, the club’s lone championship has been rightfully sullied. Its protagonists have been scorned from coast to coast and in this season during which fans returned to ballparks, booed mercilessly from the Bronx to Chavez Ravine.

Another title won’t soothe all the deep-seated bitterness outside Houston. But it would certainly legitimize the baseball greatness of Astros old and new.

“It’s extra special, after everything we’ve been through as a team, as a family, we stuck together, we fought back and we’re here, man,” says shortstop Carlos Correa. “We’re a great team and we’re just proud, once again, to be in the World Series.”

In Game 6, it was the leaders of the new school who carried them to the pennant.

ALCS MVP Yordan Alvarez, acquired from those Dodgers in a fateful trade, drove in the game’s first run with a double and later tripled and scored another run, capping a startling final two games in which he mashed six hits, five for extra bases.

Right fielder Kyle Tucker, picking up the offensive slack once carried by former Astro George Springer, iced the game with an opposite-field, three-run homer, his fourth of this postseason.

And rookie starter Luis Garcia, chased ignominiously from Game 2 by a then-unstoppable Red Sox offense, carried a no-hitter for 5⅔ innings as he and four relievers completed a thorough vexing of Boston’s bats.

When Ryan Pressly recorded the final out, the crowd of 42,718 at Minute Maid – one place the Astros can be sure they’re loved almost unconditionally – erupted in celebration of the pennant and anticipation of what comes next.

There was also a fair share of relief for a turnabout their club managed in an ALCS with wild momentum swings.

Garcia recorded just three outs and gave up five runs in Game 2 at Minute Maid Park Oct. 16 before exiting with a knee injury that the club said Garcia worked out in a bullpen session the following day.

In Game 6, he looked like an entirely different pitcher.

Running his fastball up to 97 mph, Garcia allowed just two baserunners through five innings – Kyle Schwarber striking out but reaching on a wild pitch to open the game, and Alex Verdugo drawing a second-inning walk. Still, Garcia was nursing just a 1-0 lead and the Astros had Phil Maton warming as he recorded the first two outs of the sixth, the massive stakes outweighing the potential milestone.

Good thing: Kiké Hernández nearly tied the game with a booming triple into the nook in left-center field. That gave manager Dusty Baker an easy call – he lifted Garcia, who received a thunderous standing ovation as he departed, and Maton induced a pop out to shortstop on one pitch.

PEARLS: Joc Pederson and his necklace are the talk of MLB postseason

It was a command performance, Garcia’s fastball regularly hitting 95-96 mph, 3 mph over his regular season average, and his pitch mix only deepened an ignominious Red Sox funk. Garcia leaned heavily on his fastball early but struck out Christian Arroyo and Hunter Renfroe almost entirely on cutters in the fifth. He opened the sixth punching out pinch-hitter Danny Santana on a changeup before Schwarber’s deep fly to left preceded Hernández’s triple.

Hernández staged an MVP-worthy performance throughout the postseason – 20 hits in 49 at-bats (.408) and five home runs, three in this ALCS. Yet a Boston offense that scored 21 runs in Games 2 and 3 to briefly seize command of the series went AWOL: From the second inning of Game 4 until Hernandez’s triple, the Red Sox recorded seven hits in 73 at-bats (.096 average) and were outscored 20-1.

The series pivoted, pitching coach Brent Strom said, when young pitchers such as Garcia and Game 5 winner Framber Valdez determined if they would go down, it’d be with their nastiest stuff.

“They were spitting on so many non-competitive breaking balls the first couple games,” Strom said of the Red Sox, “I basically told the group, ‘If you’re going to get beat, throw your best stuff over the plate, and then you can sleep at night, rather than dance around the strike zone.’ Young pitchers start dancing a bit, and you can’t do that.”

And the Astros played nearly flawless baseball when they had to the most.

Game 6 started with Schwarber reaching on the strikeout-wild pitch, and Hernández followed with a smash up the middle. But Altuve – positioned like a shortstop in the shift – made a sparkling diving grab and one-hopped a perfect throw to first for the out.

The Red Sox nearly caught Baker slipping in the seventh, when Graveman – who pitched two innings in Game 4 – wobbled by issuing a leadoff walk and single to Alex Verdugo. With nobody warming in the bullpen and runners at the corners, it would be Graveman’s game to lose.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora countered with lefty bat Travis Shaw, who worked a full count. Verdugo took off on the pitch, but Graveman struck out Shaw and catcher Martin Maldonado, as is his wont, unloaded a bazooka of a throw, shortstop Carlos Correa letting it travel long enough to nab Verdugo for the 2-6 double play.

“That was huge,” says Baker. “There are people who were wondering why Maldi was playing, hitting .075.”

By then, it was party time once again in Houston. For sign-stealing protagonists Correa and Altuve, Alex Bregman and Yuli Gurriel, the coming days will bring more criticism from fans and pundits alike, certainly thunderous boos in L.A. and probably some why-not catcalls in Atlanta, too.

Yet if the boos never abate, the criticism may ring hollower if the Astros keep winning. With four more wins, a cast of characters old and new will have plenty to celebrate.

“These guys felt that we were going to get to this point, and it’s a matter of belief,” says Baker. “Before it happens, you have to believe it.

“These guys believe it.”

Latest Updates: ‘It’s a small enough town’: Privacy complicates jury selection in trial over Ahmaud Arbery

The defendants’ connections in the small community have complicated the case from the outset. The first prosecutor assigned to the proceedings, Brunswick District Attorney Jackie Johnson, had to recuse herself because Greg McMichael previously worked as an investigator for her office and as a Glynn County police officer. She has since been indicted for misconduct in the case.

The next prosecutor, Waycross Judicial Circuit District Attorney George Barnhill, also had to recuse himself because he was recommended by Johnson, who failed to disclose she asked him to advise police on Arbery’s death.

In court late Wednesday, Kev.in Gough, Bryan’s defense attorney, called Brunswick a “fishbowl” where everybody knows everybody. He even appeared to recognize one of the jurors.
Travis McMichael, left, his father, Gregory McMichael, and William “Roddie” Bryan Jr. will stand trial for murder in the death of Ahmaud Arbery.

 

Would-be jurors in the murder trial of the three men charged with killing 25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery expressed concerns this week about remaining anonymous should they be selected to serve – particularly given the size of the community and intense public interest in the high-profile trial.

A thousand of the 62,000 registered voters in Glynn County received jury summons. The judge hopes to narrow the jury pool to a smaller group of 64 and eventually to 16 people: 12 jurors and four alternates.

Complicating that process is the fact thatmultiple prospective jurors have told the court they know Arbery, the defendants, potential witnesses, other prospective jurors and some of the local figures involved in the case. Some worried they would be identified as a juror in the press and feared they would face personal repercussions after rendering a verdict.

“I don’t want to have to relocate because of something that goes wrong,” one prospective juror said Monday.

Under questioning by lawyers for the defendants, another prospective juror expressed similar concerns: “Any verdict, guilty or innocent, is going to be unpopular with some people,” she said. “Maybe I’d even feel unsafe, I don’t know.”

One juror told the court she was concerned about “making sure my name is out of the news.”

“It’s a small enough town,” another prospective juror told lawyers for the defendants Thursday. “I think it would be naïve to think there couldn’t be real-world repercussions.”
A man uses his phone to record the Ahmaud Arbery mural on the side of the Brunswick African American Cultural Center.

Judge Timothy Walmsley has barred the media from releasing identifying information about jurors and repeatedly assured jurors the court is working to maintain their anonymity.

Anonymous juries are rare. But due to social media, the ease of internet searches, and concerns over juror safety, the practice could become more common – a shift some legal scholars say could jeopardize transparency and the need for more diverse juries.

Brunswick is predominantly Black but sits in the overwhelmingly white Glynn County. Given the racial dynamics at play in the case, the demographic makeup of the jury is being closely watched.

Arbery, who was Black, was fatally shot in February of last year while out jogging in the Satilla Shores neighborhood of Brunswick. Three white men – Greg McMichael, 65, his son Travis, 35, and their neighbor William “Roddie” Bryan, 52 – stand accused of his murder.

The death of Ahmaud Arbery: What happened and when

 

The first week of jury selection was a local affair as a cast of characters paraded through the court: A baker, a teacher, a security guard, a housekeeper, a crane operator, a hair stylist, a server.

Most said they knew at least one person involved in the case, including the defendants, their partners and attorneys. One said they knew someone from a local Rotary Club. Two said a witness used to cut their hair. One said they knew a defendant’s neighbor.

“My coworkers are best friends with Roddie’s wife, we discuss this case all the time,” one juror wrote on a questionnaire.

One juror said a defendant is “a friend of my father’s and he’s been over to our house multiple times.”

One prospective juror Thursday said he has known all three defendants “for years.” He said he and the McMichaels have been part of the same hunting club for two decades.

“I just feel like I know them too good,” he told prosecutor Linda Dunikoski. “I want to be honest.”

Multiple prospective jurors also knew Arbery. One went to school with him. Another went to school with his parents. And one said his son played football with Arbery.

Many jurors recognized each other in the courtroom, too. One woman said she knew six other jurors, including her son, a former student and current and former coworkers.

Despite their various degrees of familiarity with the case and those involved, some would-be jurors said they could remain neutral if they were seated on the panel.

One potential juror Thursday afternoon told the court she has known one of the defendants for 30 years. When asked by the judge if she could remain neutral, the woman said “yes.”

She moved on to the next round of the process.

Updates News: From Gabby Petito to Tyga to ‘MAID’: ‘I don’t know how many moments we have to have before it matters 2021

In the last couple of months, there have been a number of high-profile incidents of domestic abuse in the news.

The murder of Gabby Petito has received overwhelming media attention. Bodycam footage and a 911 call before Petito’s death raised questions about possible domestic violence issues between Petito and her boyfriend Brian Laundrie, a person of interest in her death whose remains were found Wednesday in a Florida wilderness park. Rapper Tyga, real name Michael Stevenson and famously the former beau of Kylie Jenner, was arrested last week after an ex-girlfriend shared photos of his alleged abuse to her Instagram Story. The hugely popular series “MAID,” which premiered on Netflix this month, explores the lesser understood dimensions of emotional abuse.

There have been several important cultural moments before. Advocates point to the abused housewife Farrah Fawcett played in the 1984 film “The Burning Bed,” the O.J. Simpson trial in the ’90s, Rihanna’s violent assault by ex-boyfriend Chris Brown in 2009, and to some extent #MeToo. But combatting domestic abuse requires far more than increased public awareness – it is a complex social problem with many causes, different prevention points, affecting different populations with different needs. It also goes well beyond the highly sensationalized cases of physical violence or murder.

One in 3 women has experienced intimate partner violence, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“I don’t know how many moments we have to have before it matters,” said TK Logan, a professor at the University of Kentucky whose research focuses on intimate partner violence, specifically stalking. “I’ve been studying this for almost 30 years and the attention comes in waves. It’s good to talk about it. I don’t mean to minimize that, but we have to do more than talk. We need to start helping women.”
Did Gabby Petito police footage reveal subtle signs of abuse, gaslighting from Laundrie?

The term is “domestic violence,” but what does it mean? What do we understand and what do we still refuse to see? As advocates and survivors try to explain, on this Domestic Violence Awareness Month and every other opportunity they get, this abuse isn’t just black eyes and bloodied noses. It’s control and degradation, a sickness in the belly, terror in the night. It’s the partner who scrutinizes what you eat, monitors what you spend, who you talk to, when you come home and especially when you leave. It’s eggshells on every floor. It’s guilt and gaslighting.

It’s time, experts say, for society to stop asking, “why didn’t you leave?” when the questions really should be, “why is it so hard to?” “why does he hurt you?” “why did you feel you had to stay?”

“We love quick policy fixes. We love more police. We love more prosecutions. And none of that is actually going to stop this problem, and hasn’t,” said Leigh Goodmark, director of the Gender Violence Clinic at the University of Maryland Carey School of Law. “What many people are coming to realize is that doing this work takes time and effort and energy, and isn’t sexy and isn’t easy and isn’t just soundbites.”
Advocates say we need to increase public awareness, but not stop there

Domestic violence is a pervasive social problem that cuts across race, age, income, sexual orientation, religion and gender — in terms of both victims and perpetrators. Domestic violence disproportionally impacts women of color.

Public awareness matters to the extent that it helps people understand the dynamics of domestic abuse. More people who can spot abusive behavior can help intervene. More people who understand the barriers survivors face in ending an abusive relationship can offer tangible support once they are ready to leave. It’s important to educate individuals because they will become jurors on domestic abuse cases, leaders in their workplaces, local lawmakers in their communities.

But despite decades of advocacy, stereotypes about domestic violence persist, including that all perpetrators look like “monsters” or that abuse always begins right away. One of the most entrenched, said Gillian Pinchevsky, an associate professor of criminal justice in the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, is that domestic violence is only physical. Pinchevsky said in her class, she asks students to draw a picture of “domestic abuse.” The majority draw physical violence, a female victim and a male perpetrator.

Domestic abuse can be physical, sexual, emotional, economic and psychological, according to the Justice Department. Many victims say the physical abuse isn’t even the worst part.

Survivors themselves can internalize domestic violence myths, making it that much harder for them to recognize their abuse or name it. In an early scene in Netflix’s “MAID,” the protagonist Alex, played by Margaret Qualley, is trying to leave her boyfriend, who manipulates her, berates her, coerces her, punishes her, but never actually hit her.

“I’m not abused,” she tells a social worker.
Examine systems that ‘don’t help people’

Pinchevsky said the criminal justice system also places a heavy emphasis on physical violence, which is partly why some researchers and scholars say it’s not the most appropriate entity to address domestic abuse.

“It has failed victims over and over and over and over again,” she said.

Goodmark is among those scholars who argue the criminal and legal systems are not equipped to sensitively and fairly respond to these cases, especially when custody is involved.

“These systems don’t help people,” she said. “They’re not stopping intimate partner violence. They’re not lowering rates of violence, and they are really hurting the people who, in theory, they were meant to help.”

A USA TODAY investigation in December found that in defiance of widely accepted best practices, Florida removes children from parents – most of them mothers – who have been battered by an intimate partner.

Goodmark also doesn’t believe the prison system is the best way to hold perpetrators of domestic abuse accountable.

“What prison does is expose people to trauma that they then take with them back out into their relationships,” she said. “It resolves none of the issues that brought them into the system in the first place.”

A 2010 study sponsored by the Bureau of Justice Statistics found that domestic violence offenders whose sentences included a jail term had higher odds of domestic violence recidivism. It found victim-oriented treatment and anger management interventions were associated with lower odds of perpetrating domestic abuse again during a five-year period.
Go deeper on what causes people to commit violence

Advocates say the culture needs to think deeply about better ways of responding to abuse and preventing it, which can include public health approaches as well as community-based solutions.

It’s also important to understand why people perpetrate. Before a person commits abuse, a whole host of things happen in their life. The dominant characterization of domestic violence suggests it’s about someone wanting power and control over another person. Goodmark says she agrees that power and control over a partner are often the outcome, though she isn’t convinced it’s always the motivation.

“We have to look critically at that narrative to say, ‘What are the other things that cause people to be violent?’ Is it about wanting power and control of a partner? Is it about wanting control in anyone’s life? And how do we give people that feeling of control so that they’re not acting out? Is it about masculinity and what people learn about masculinity and the use of violence? Is it about economic stress?”

Goodmark says you cannot separate economic issues from violence.

“One of the really interesting statistics that came out of the pandemic was that early on, domestic violence increased significantly. And then in April of 2020, you see it dip pretty sharply,” she said. “That coincided with the first stimulus checks. So we have to ask why. Why is that?”
Stop punishing women who are not ‘perfect victims’

The Petito case captivated a nation, but experts in gendered violence say the conversation has lacked context on why it’s so difficult for women to get help when they need it.

A video released by the Moab Police Department in Utah shows an officer pulled over Petito and Laundrie’s van in August. Laundrie appears calm and laughs with officers, while Petito is visibly shaken and one officer said she was hyperventilating. Petito said Laundrie grabbed her face, and officers are heard discussing how a witness said they saw him shove her. Petito tells officers she hit Laundrie.

Officers decided Petito was the aggressor.

In the 1980s, Goodmark said research came out that said arrest was likely to decrease recidivist violence. In response, many states adopted mandatory arrest laws, including Utah, which say that if police show up to the scene of intimate partner violence and they have probable cause to make an arrest, they have to.

The result, Goodmark said, is that arrest rates for women went through the roof. Not because women were all of a sudden becoming violent, but because of the way police implemented those laws. Women tend to admit to the violence that they use, because they see that violence as aberrational.

Police go to the scene and a woman says, “Yes, I hit him, because he was strangling me” or “Yes, I hit him,” and she’s given no opportunity to explain how it was in self-defense. Sometimes strangulation injuries aren’t visible but scratch marks are.

If a woman, especially, is anything less than a perfect victim, Goodmark said, if they are emotional, or angry, if they have a mental health issue or a criminal history, that is used against them.

“There are a million different ways that the police can say, ‘Well, clearly you’re not a perfect victim, and therefore you’re a perpetrator,'” Goodmark said. “And once you have been identified as the perpetrator, the switch flips, and no one in that system, not police, not prosecutors, not judges, can see you as a victim anymore.”
Start asking the right questions

The unsexy solutions to domestic violence are wide-ranging and dovetail with other societal ills, including structural sexism and racism. But they are not easy or always straightforward. It’s preventing kids from being abused and neglected, from seeing violence in their homes, from witnessing violence in their communities. It’s building violence prevention into schools, ensurin.g people’s basic needs are met, giving communities tools to hold perpetrators accountable. It’s funding research and safety nets and programs that help women while they’re in abusive relationships and when they leave.

In “MAID,” Alex is at times desperate but also resolute. She wants a better life for herself and her daughter. She’s upended and uprooted, over and over again. She encounters systems with no logic, people with no empathy, and puts one foot in front of the other even when she does not know where the road will go. When the social worker asks if she has any special skills, her mind flashes to her 2-year-old daughter Maddy, the pair of them twirling on a beach, Alex quietly rocking her in the sun, cultivating the child’s joy in spite of her own misery. This is a skill. This is survival.

“The lack of easy solutions can lead people to just throw their hands up and say, ‘You know what? We can’t fix this.’ It’s been with us since the beginning of time. It will always be with us,” Goodmark said. “I think that so much of the coverage is always about what should law enforcement have done differently to prevent this from happening? And that’s the wrong question. The question should be, ‘what could we have done at every step along the way in this couple’s relationship to prevent this from happening?’ And when we start asking that question, then we’ll start getting to solutions.”

Updates News Robert Durst charged in 1982 disappearance of his wife, days after life sentence for murder of best friend 2021

Durst had also long claimed that he spoke with Kathie by phone once she reached Manhattan. But he acknowledged only in recent years that was a lie, first to the producers of the HBO documentary, “The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst,” and then on the witness stand in his Los Angeles trial.

The New York Times first reported the Westchester charge on Friday morning.

Westchester prosecutors had begun presenting the case to a grand jury this week. They took the unusual step of filing a criminal complaint while that was going on, likely out of fear that Durst, in failing health and reportedly hospitalized with COVID-19 over the weekend, could die before any charges were brought against him.
New York real estate heir Robert Durst, seated with attorney Dick DeGuerin, is sentenced to life without possibility of parole for the of Su.san Berman on Oct. 14, 2021, at the Airport Courthouse in Los Angeles.

Robert Durst, the real estate scion dogged for decades with the suspicion that he was responsible for the disappearance of his wife in 1982, has been charged in New York her murder.

The Westchester District Attorney’s Office confirmed that a criminal complaint charging the 78-year-old Scarsdale native with second-degree murder was filed in Lewisboro Town Court on Tuesday.

It came five days after Durst was sentenced to life in prison with no parole for the 2000 murder of his best friend, Susan Berman, in Los Angeles. Prosecutors there had convinced jurors that Durst killed Berman to silence her because she knew he had killed Kathie Durst nearly two deca.des earlier.
Kathie Durst

Kathie Durst’s body has never been recovered. She disappeared on the night of Jan. 31, 1982, following an argument with her husband in their South Salem cottage. For decades, Durst claimed he dropped her off at the Katonah train station so she could return to their Manhattan apartment.

The next morning, a woman believed to be Berman posing as Kathie Durst called a dean at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine – where Kathie was in her last semester – to say she was too ill to attend her first day of a pediatric clerkship.

Lawyers for Durst could not immediately be reached for comment. There has been no public update on Durst’s medical condition since one of his lawyers, Dick DeGuerin, revealed he had COVID-19.

Robert Abrams, a lawyer for Kathie Durst’s relatives, said only that the family was happy with the criminal charge. He said there would be no further comment because the case is still before the grand jury. Some or all of her four siblings have either testified already or are expected to testify.

They have described Robert Durst’s abusive treatment of their sister and her desire to divorce him. Her brother recounted a Christmas party at their mother’s home at which Durst pulled Kathie by the hair as he demanded they leave.

Berman was killed just before Christmas 2000, a few weeks after news broke that New York State police Investigator Joseph Becerra had reopened the investigation into Kathie Durst’s disappearance.

The criminal complaint in Lewisboro was filed by Becerra, who had known nothing about the Dursts when he got a tip about Kathie’s disappearance in 1999.

The complaint accuses Durst of intentionally killing his wife at or near the cottage but offers no details on how she was killed.

Becerra wrote that the charge was based on law enforcement files of police and prosecutors in New York and Los Angeles, witness interviews and Robert Durst’s own words in recorded interviews and court testimony.

The interviews included the hours Durst spent with the producers of “The Jinx”, a move criticized by his own lawyers.

The sixth and final episode ended with Durst in a bathroom, caught on a hot mic saying “What the hell did I do?” and answering himself “Killed them all of course.” The footage had been edited but “killed them all” was taken as an admission that he was responsible not just for Black’s death but for those of his wife and Berman as well.

Latest News: Donald Trump’s social media platform hacked just hours after it was announced 2021

The hackers, affiliated with the hacking collective Anonymous, told The New York Times that the move was part of their “online war against hate.”

Using a false account dubbed “donaldjtrump,” the hackers posted the photos of the pigs, wrote profane rants against Twitter CEO Jack Dorse.y and made a fake account for former Trump adviser Steve Bannon, according to multiple reports. The hackers also posted memes from fake accounts for Trump, former Vice President Mike Pence and others.

Hackers gained access to a private version of former President Donald Trump’s recently announced social media platform and posted images of defecating pigs, expletives and more, according to multiple reports

“We had a fun time trolling it to high heaven,” Aubrey Cottle, a hacker affiliated with Anonymous, told The New York Times.

Cottle told multipleoutlets that the group picked up clues after the site, named Truth Social, made its app available for preorder on Apple’s App Store earlier this week. Users were able to join a waiting list for its release, and hackers claimed these pieces provided enough information to access a version of the platform.

The hackers gained access just hours after Truth Social was announced on Wednesday. The app later barred new accounts and was pulled offline according to multiple reports.

A Washington Post reporter was also able to register and post under an account name “mikepence,” the Post reported.

Politics:Donald Trump announces new social media platform, Truth Social, after being banned from major apps

Trump on Wednesday announced Truth Social – coming months after he was banned from other social media sites.

Trump was blocked from Twitter, Facebook and YouTube following the pro-Trump riot at the Capitol on Jan. 6. Twitter has said its ban on the former president is permanent, while Facebook said Trump could return in 2023 at the earliest. YouTube has said its ban on the former president will be lifted after a “risk of violence” lowers.

Trump said in a statement Wednesday that Truth Social and the Trump Media and Technology Group will “stand up to the tyranny of Big Tech.” The platform is expected to be released nationwide in the first quarter of 2022.

USA TODAY has reached out to the Trump Media Technology Group for comment on the reported hacking.

Updates Alec Baldwin discharged prop gun containing a ‘live single round’ in fatal ‘Rust’ set incident 2021

Alec Baldwin discharged a prop firearm on the set of the upcoming film “Rust” on Thursday, killing the cinematographer and injuring the film’s director in an on-set incident, authorities say.

A helicopter transported cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, 42, to the University of New Mexico Hospital, where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel, according to the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office. The director, 48-year-old Joel Souza, was transported via ambulance to Christus St. Vincent’s hospital and has since been released, according to his rep Matt DelPiano.

USA TODAY obtained an email sent to members of IATSE Local 44, a union of prop makers and other craft persons who work within the entertainment industry, about the incident. The message said the prop gun from the “Rust” set was loaded with “a live single round” and that no Local 44 members were on set.

“As many of us have already heard there was an accidental weapons discharge on a production titled ‘Rust’ being filmed in New Mexico. A live single round was accidentally fired on set by the principal actor,” the email read.
Alec Baldwin speaks on the phone in the parking lot outside the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office in Santa Fe, N.M., after he was questioned about a shooting on the set of the film “Rust.”

The general IATSE office had “no comment” on the email sent to Local 44 members but sent a statement of condolences to Hutchin’s family.

“Our entire alliance mourns this unspeakable loss with Halyna’s family, friends, and the Rust crew,” the Friday statement read.

Previously, a spokesperson for Baldwin told The Associated Press there was an accident on the set involving the misfire of a prop gun with blanks.

Baldwin spoke publicly for the first time Friday in a Twitter thread about the incident, writing he is “fully cooperating with the police.”

“There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours,” he wrote.

Baldwin also added that he has been in contact with Hutchins’ husband, Matthew Hutchins, who told Insider in a Friday interview he doesn’t “think there are words to communicate the situation”

“I am not going to be able to comment about the facts or the process of what we’re going through right now, but I appreciate that everyone has been very sympathetic,” Hutchins said.
A prop firearm discharged by veteran actor Alec Baldwin, who is starring and producing a Western movie, killed his director of photography and injured the director.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reported Baldwin was seen Thursday outside the sheriff’s office in tears. USA TODAY’s attempts to get comment from him have been unsuccessful.
