Kanye Not Felonious

9/26/2008 4:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kanye WestWe've learned the L.A. County D.A. has decided not to file felony charges against Kanye West and his bodyguard for the attack at LAX earlier this month.

Yet another example of what a celebrity should do when they get into trouble -- hire attorney Blair Berk. And it doesn't hurt that TMZ declined to prosecute the matter.

The case has been sent to the L.A. City Attorney for possible misdemeanor prosecution. No decision yet.

why would you say "we declined to prosecute the matter" when you clearly know that in the great nazi state of california, it is up to the state whether they want to prosecute or not. you have little or no say.

Wow, I watched the video and was terrified. He actually smashed a camera. That is so gangsta. I'm surprised he didn't also pinch him and whack him with his scarf. Paps BEWARE!

Huh?    

This doesn't surprise me. LA doesn't want another riot on their hands. Remember the Rodney King riots?

Kanye's still a ignorant, racist, A-hole, but since that's not enough to press charges over, it's of no matter that he wasn't found to be "felonious" on this stupid incident. Once an A-hole..always an A-hole, and I didn't need to see this little pouty-ass cry baby's hissy fit to realize that he is one.

He's just marked himself as a favorite pap target is all, seeing how they KNOW they can get a rise out of him and make him lose it. Makes for great tabloid covers. They better make sure to send black paps to do it though, otherwise he'll cry "RACISM...whitey's harassing me's!!"

ur WRITERS suck    

okay it is SOO hilarious that the same idiots commenting about how kanye didn't get charged because he is a "black rapper" didn't say a thing when kate moss tried to run down the paps with her airport cart while her daughter was sitting on it. Please the paps should not have been allowed in the airport if they weren't cathcing a flight, it just causes more of a security risk. Its also funny how quick everyone screams that blacks alwasy play the race card but when the tables are turned and someone black gets out of a situation it is because they're black??? LMFAO come on you have to put more effort in these half assed explainations. THAT IS WHAT THE PHOTHOGS get!! And tmz if you were so hurt or traumatized by the situation why didn't you press charges? Get real Harvey Levin and the rest of those writers are LAME LAME LAME!!

Classic battle here. The FREEDOMS of the PRESS verse the PRIVACY of Black celebs with attitude problems. Which one will TRUMP the other? The media have their press cards and the Blacks have their laminated RACE cards handy. Who's RIGHTS will win out?

Stay tuned!!
