Kanye West

Won't Be Prosecuted

For Photog Attack

EXCLUSIVE

Kanye West must have a really good lawyer, because law enforcement sources tell us it's virtually certain he will NOT be charged with ANY crime in connection with last week's paparazzo attack.

Here's the way we're told it will play out. 

LAPD robbery detectives are investigating the photog's allegation that Kanye tried to steal his camera -- but our sources say that dog won't hunt.  The D.A. will NEVER charge Kanye with felony attempted robbery, because there's no proof he tried to pilfer the camera at LAX.

We're told cops will send the attempted robbery file to the D.A. and they expect it will be rejected within days. 

The next step -- the file goes to the L.A. City Attorney for a possible misdemeanor criminal battery prosecution.   But here's why that won't happen.  We're told Kanye is willing to ante up some cash to make the case go away, and it's perfectly legal.  It's called a civil compromise and it's done everyday.

So Kanye will skate ... and probably attack another photog.

The end.

When is Mr. West up in the UFC? He is the most dangerous man in the Northern Hemisphere, That is what he makes of himself. He will kick Anderson Silva's ass to the moon and back ...thats how violently dangerous he profiles himself, but serious now: I'm from the Netherlands, and here in the country we have an artist named Andre Rieu. The master with a violin, and he makes really big, allways sold out shows around the world. Walzing here, walzing there, he is the Waltzmaster. Pretty Lame if you're younger than 57 years old, so dangerlevel -27,4. Kanye West is in that same range over here. Lame to the bone, people younger than 57 will flip the channel if mr. West appears with a video. It's unbelievable that this schizofrenic wannabe black guy is a star over there. He is the most unblack black artist in the world. His appearance and his ego don't go together with the looks. Or am I wrong? No, you know it 2 overthere.

Why isn't it harassment when a photog shouts offending personal things to somebody to get a reaction? At least it is an invasion of privacy. And all the BS comments about Kanye are totally ridiculous. IF IS THE PAPARAZZO LAUGHING IF HE IS SO SCARED?

Again, Vomit-ye gets away with whatever he does to others. Vomit-ye isn't charged with assault, battery or attempting to rob the photographer BUT Chris Brown (and let me state right here that Brown is a puke too) can't so much as look at someone wrong without being hauled into court for probation violations . . . what gives here? Why is Vomit-ye given a pass for assault/battery of a private citizen trying to do his job, yet Brown is slapped with 1000 hours of community service for not giving a person his insurance/license information when in an accident? Minor accident and the DA still refused to drop charges even AFTER the other driver wanted no charges filed and stopped cooperating with them relating to Brown. Honestly, this is why our justice system is broken. So congrats to LA's district attorney's office for AGAIN letting Vomit-ye slide. What's it going to take for Vomit-ye to be held criminally accountable for his actions? Beat the sh*t out of someone so bad that he/she ends up in the ICU or worse dead? Be warned district attorney's office, Vomit-ye will strike again and this time, you will have blood on your hands for not treating this LOSER as the criminal he is.
