The last person to speak with the photog who was killed Tuesday following Justin Bieber's car tells TMZ ... Chris Guerra was quite sure Justin had been smoking pot while driving earlier in the day.

The person who spoke with Chris at 5:16 PM -- less than an hour before he was killed -- did not want us to use his name.  He's also a photog who took Chris under his wing, and says Chris was one of his closest friends.

He also says he believes Justin is partly to blame for Chris' death because of the singer's reckless driving history and alleged pot smoking which made it a big story to follow.

As for Miley Cyrus' comments, he says, "Good Christians that I know ... don't throw stones at people who get killed."

If the guy actually said this, it ranks as one of the most asinine statements of all time. The idea that a belief that a celebrity is doing something wrong means that the celebrity is responsible for what happens to some idiot trying to photograph the act is stupid beyond belief.

You can tell by the conversation the guy is having that he takes no responsibility for his actions or any other person in his profession. Anything to get a story. Well, he's part of the story now. It's karma dude.

Why is there so much hate for this kid? I don't get it. He did nothing wrong here and it is as if he killed someone. How many papazzi have caused accidents for stars? They killed Diana that's for sure.

The photog's are invading the privacy of stars, they will do anything to get the picture so they can get the money, it is all about the money, Lets stop placing blame where it does not belong.

Even if you hate Justin he is not to blame for this. Even if he was smoking, it is his choice! We need to leave this boy alone and go fix bigger problems.

The BLOOD is on your hands TMZ ... This is the culture you create, worship, and idolize. We'll see what happens next (most likely involving your Queen of Funner(sic))

I'm no fan of Justin Bieber, but to blame him for the photographer's reckless actions - because Justin's so newsworthy? - is just ridiculous. May he rest in peace, but celebrity news is never so important that you need to risk your life.

Listen, you want to stop all this paparazzi stuff? Include what they do in the no stalking law and create a law that bans the selling or use of a star's photo without their written permission.

Sorry this person is dead, but maybe if you people had a decent job instead of running after stupid celebrities and imposing on their private lives this probably would not have happened.

Not a fan of Bieber, but like the headline above, "I absolutely believe the paparozzo are a$$holes". PERIOD
