The victim wants to press charges against Kanye ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.  What's more, our sources say he's been interviewed by cops and they've determined he did indeed suffer injuries during the attack.  Cops will refer the case to the D.A. as a felony attempted robbery and not a battery case.  The routine is to go after the suspect for the most serious charge.

Put his ugly ass in jail and show him he is NOT the law and he is not as great as he thinks he is. Watch, mama Kris will bail his ugly ass out. I hate those people.

This looks like a staged event to me. Most likely for a future episode of a reality type show.

Kanye will continue to assault small skinny white photographers and small skinny white girls because he is a racist.

Everyone who knows Kanye knows he is a racist except the kardasians because they are dumb media whores.
