911 Emergency: Clooney Is Eating Steak!

4/1/2008 12:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Protecting George Clooney was priority #1 for the L.A. Sheriffs Department last night -- and the paps were pissed!


At least five squad cars, a handful of officers and one videographer were called to Dan Tana's last night to regulate the sidewalk for Clooney's exit.

Only one pap got ticketed, for illegal parking -- but after taking a look at how effortless George's exit was, was their presence even necessary?

Were the doughnut shops closed for renovations or something?

CLOONEY IS TWO FACED    

Video doesn't load but not surprised Clooney needed cops for protection. He's on everybody's HATE list right now. He's so yesterday.

George Clooney, the 47 year old American high school graduate was told to shut up at the UN by Russia and France according to the news.com.

I don't particularly think he's all that, but c'mon, the dudes way big right now, not yesterday. We're so desperate for some old-school actor with class, that he's been elected. Imagine a star who doesn't show his who-haw, has an intelligent sense of humour, and tries to stay below the fray. oops, I just talked myself into liking him.

DA's leak    

The reason he wanted the cops there for his exit was to prevent some lame ass celebrity website from sending their photogs to harass and ask him personal questions.

Sorry, but celebs should pay for thier own security. I'm sure there is a drunk driver, or a speeder, out there making the streets more unsafe than George Clooney is!

She looks great    

BOYCOTT GEORGE CLOONEY.
RECALL SHERIFF BACA.

TO PEOPLE OF LA: THESE ARE DOLLARS OUT OF YOUR POCKET THAT ARE BEING WASTED.

DOESN'T THAT ANGER YOU, ESPECIALLY WHEN THE COUNTY SHORTCHANGES OTHER SERVICES AND INCREASES TAXES DUE TO BUDGET PROBLEMS?

CONTACT SHERIFF BACA, CELEBRITY BUTT-KISSER. AND EXPRESS YOUR VIEW.

If someone was raped, robbed, murdered LAST NIGHT, it's on your headS, Clooney and Sheriif's Dept.

THIS IS SICKENING.

Taxpayers can barely get law enforcement to show up for true endangerment and crime, yet 5 squad cars to help an actor out of a restaurant.

By the number of posts to any of his pics on tmz or perezhilton one can safely and accurately state that Clooney's career is lack luster, luke warm, barely visable except for the paid postings on gossip web sites. He is so yesterday is so very correct.
Nobody likes or respects what the 47 year old high school graduate has to say or what film tv show he or his agents or movie outlets are promoting.
Count the posts Add the numbers Clooney not a money maker for anyone...
Perhaps mocking a man's incurable diesease for political gain as did Clooney when he joked about Charten Hesten's Alzheimer's, has indeed affected any hope of a long term career.
Not suprising since more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimers and one out of every baby boomer will come down with some sort of dementia within the next decade. More importantly each and every American household will have a parent or grandparent with Alzheimer's and will be gravely affended by ugly demeaning remarks about loved ones with Alzheimers.
Sad and ugly to mock those with handicapps and disease.

THIS WASTE OF PUBLICLY FUNDED MAN POWER, MONEY AND OTHER RESOURCES IS A DISGRACE AND AN EMBARASSMENT. WE LIVE IN A CITY WHERE GANGS ARE IN CONTROL OF THE STREETS, KILLING PEOPLE IN THEIR OWN YARDS, DRIVE BY SHOOTINGS ON OUR FREEWAYS, AN INCREASINGLY FULL CRIME BLOTTER OF MUGGINGS, ROBBERIES AND OTHER ATTACKS ON INNOCENT CITIZENS , AND WE ARE PAYING THIS SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT TO HANG AROUND RESTAURANTS HASSLING PHOTOGRAPHERS AND "PROTECTING" GEORGE CLOONEY. THE PEOPLE HAVE A RIGHT TO BE LIVID. LET GEORGE CLOONEY PROVIDE HIS OWN SECURITY OR STAY HOME.

Don't forget that one of his very closed friends was killed by a lunatic. And since he said his opposition toward the war, he has received several death threats. So yeah, those cars should have been there.
And follow Paris Hilton and cohorts and you would see way much of policemen around them...

Why are me and you paying for George Clooney's security? I'm sure he has enough money to pay for security! If he doesn't like the paps bothering him he should have gone into another business. Besides he should happy someone even cares, it's when no one cares is when he should worry!
