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.

Los Angeles is a corrupt city. Kanye West will kill next time. Probably get off. A flawed JUSTICE SYSTEM.

I actually didn't expect Kanye getting prosecuted. I mean what celeb actually gets punished? BUT I do propose Anger Management to him! I mean he's now a father to a young baby girl. He should be a better role model for his baby. You can't just go around and beating people up. You are famous, you are successful so you also have to deal with the things that come with fame-- meaning paparazzi! You ain't Yeezus nor God (whatever your lyrics may say...) Sorry but I'm really disappointed.

Black on White crime is perfectly permissible in the lousy state of California what a country.

Here we go the racist bigots retards haters sicko
just like Amanda Bynes talk and write alot of rubbish
I don't care what race or colour you are some of you
people are mentally sick in your head and need to
see a psychiatrist. What has this got to do with a murder case. If is was your family minding their own
business and someone killed them, you would be happy not to have a trial and anyone can say self defence even after him stalking the person.
Kanye have said so many times that he does not want the press talking or taking his picture he hates
it he does not even want to seen on tv. They killed
princess Diana, he never give interviews and tell the world his private life anything written about him
is made up lies. They should leave him alone

I agree. If he doesn't want to be bothered, leave him alone. Well, he'd probably attack you for that too.

When you lay down with and impregnate the biggest fame whore on the planet what do you expect to happen? If he can't stand the heat he needs to get out of the kitchen.
