TMZ Camera Bandit Suspect -- Arrested on Tape!

Justice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TMZ Camera Bandit Suspect -- Arrested on Tape!

It took a few weeks, but cops have finally arrested a man they believe snatched a TMZ camera from a TMZ photog (while it was recording) .... and it's all because the perp did the most stereotypical bad guy thing ever -- he returned to the scene of the crime!
TMZ Camera Bandit
It all went down at L.A. County Superior Court yesterday, when our cameraman was trying to shoot Kid Rock -- and noticed the suspect walking around the very area where our photog was jacked last month.

Our photog tipped off the cops, who swarmed in and made an arrest -- and of course, our photog recorded the whole thing ... while holding on to his camera this time.

FYI -- the perp's name is Ysuef Bickhem.

Wasn't the first dude Asian or Mexican? This dude is black. Are you just rounding up every minority you can find?

Funny how all my fellow white trash racists thought he was mexican. He looked more asian, but the cameraman sure knows who he was. It was definitely him as you can see. Now where's the stupid f*****g klan?

Just something I've noticed.
Probably cause they are "underserved."

Yes they printed the name of someone arrested for a crime, you know, like EVERY other news organization in history does on a daily basis?

The idiot deserves to have his face/name anywhere anyone wants to put it. Seriously, think about how stupid this guy is. He steals a camera from a photographer while the photographer has the camera ON and filming (thus obviously going to catch him on the camera one way or another), doing so in BROAD daylight, doing so IN FRONT OF A COURT HOUSE, and then after having his face broadcast online, returns to the exact same place a few weeks later, and apparently stays there long enough for police to come and arrest him. It really doesn't get much dumber than that.

But yeah, you're right, TMZ is a bunch of jerks for laughing at a useless thief that attempted to rob one of their workers.

Right.

STFU TMZ YOU ARE IDIOTS    

Well let's see, TMZ works for AOL who works for the ILLUMINATI. That's why TMZ would have no time for exposing anything to do with the government and their crimes of eugenics. So they report BS on someone who stole a camera. Like anyone cares or anyone with a brain cares.
