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?

7. 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.

Wake up Los Angeles. This is a serious issue here. Last summer a family friend went missing when on his way to his girlfriends house in LA Cty. His parents & friends BEGGED the LA Cty Sheriff to send out the Search & Rescue & help them find him. (They believed he met with an accident in the Canyons) They were at the Sheriffs office, in tears, literally begging for their help. They were treated with scorn and ridicule. The sheriffs told them their son "probably changed his mind & went to Vegas to party." The parents created their own search party, & hired their own helicopters. After 3 days, my friend was found, dead in his car, where he had crashed off Mulholland Highway. He was found by his step-Mom and little brother, who are still traumatized by this 10 months later.

The terrible way this family was treated exacerbated their grief. They were right about everything, but have never received an apology. The LA Cty Sheriff can always spare squad cars and officers to assist celebrities, (last summer there were pix of them escorting the Hilton parents to visit Paris in jail); but they can't be bothered with regular people. The media are just as bad. Several of us tried to give this story to the press, but they couldn't spare the reporters...too busy covering Paris & Britney. Clooney & Dan Tana's can afford their own security. This is so sick, and so unjust, I just can't believe it...what a sick world!
