The subject has been gaining headlines since the early hours that the LAPD arrived at the mansion of Justin Bieber on the morning of Tuesday (14), to meet a sending search of evidence of the involvement of the singer on an ‘attack eggs‘ in a neighbor’s house. But another issue has generated controversy and criticism, the amount of police and the mega structure for an action that was unusual for similar cases and involving anonymous.
The FOX News , important communication network in the world, published news where officials and lawyers have criticized the tax expense of the American taxpayer with the search, but gave their opinions about the true motives of the alleged ‘overkill’ in the number of police on site.
The staff of the Los Angeles County was the home of Justin Bieber in Calabasas on Tuesday morning with a search warrant to investigate an alleged incident of throwing eggs, sending not one, not two, but 11 police cars.
According to some legal experts the fanfare was a financial waste “embarrassing” .
“Police have generated extraordinary expenses to try to prove a relatively minor crime. Make sure if an ordinary person had investigated his home, police would not respond to criminal warrants with a battalion, “ said criminal defense attorney based in California, David Wohl to Fox411. “This is a frankly embarrassing response officers who seem make a hell bent on finally do something to give a lesson in this pop star. “
Attorney Leo Terrell’s CleartheCourt.com said law enforcement likes to do celebrity sample, hence the show of force.
“Justin Bieber is not a dangerous criminal or accused of a dangerous weapon. Accordingly, the 11 officers were all with the cameras,” he said. “It is difficult to estimate how much (the search cost to the taxpayer), but the search warrant means that a criminal investigation was opened by the Sheriff’s Department, a detective was used to obtain a search warrant, a judge had to sign the search warrant, etc.. I think this may have cost approximately from $ 15,000 to $ 25,000 based solely on the number of officers involved. “
However, Lt. Thompson County Sheriff’s Department insisted during a press conference on Tuesday that Bieber did not receive special treatment.
“We did this search warrant to send a message, this is not what we do,” he said, before revealing that message. “But hopefully maybe understand the gravity of this may change some behaviors.”
A source inside the LA County Police Department defended the tactical decision, saying the extra manpower was needed to ensure that the search went ahead as planned with the expected mass of support in the media.
“They also wanted to have a significant number of witnesses and multiple eyes, because it is a case of high interest,” the source said. “Having at least 11 is better than just one or two … Basically, they were protecting the rear the city. “
As it stands, the attack took Bieber’s best friend, rapper Lil Za, who was arrested for possession of narcotics. Officials said Bieber was not “connected” with the seizure of illicit drugs.
The Prince of Pop had several disagreements with neighbors in their gated community, accused of many night parties and driving in dangerous speed through residential streets.
“We may be surprised by the bad behavior of Bieber? He is a 19 years old, with millions of dollars, fame and without parental supervision. This is a recipe for disaster, “ noted LA attorney, Anahita Sedaghatfar. “How come he never suffered consequences for their bad behavior and that is why it is increasing. saw this pattern with numerous stars still children.”
Bieber’s rep did not respond to a request for comment.
