Kanye West

Won't Be Prosecuted

For Photog Attack

EXCLUSIVE

0724-kanye-west-pap-article-3
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.

Guess there are "special" rules for an ass like Kanye! Every time you see him he looks like he's ready to knock someone out. He's a walking time bomb, he's going to hurt someone badly, let's hope they prosecute him then. Good Luck Kim!!!

Good. He should walk away without charges. That photog antagonized him and it was wrong.

This is just getting redonkulous, If I went out, saw some guy taking pictures and just decided to go off on him physically touching him and an ambulance was called.... I don't think I would get the same treatment by the U.S. courts and judicial system.... I am done with the U.S. , this country blows

WHat is the DA is LA LA land stupid. Back to law school. This is clearly an assault and a battery. No wonder criminals and wanna bee clebrities get away with murder ( OJ) as the interpretation of the law is truly boased by those living in the land of the fruits, nuts, wacko's, pervs and degenerates.... What does this angry, gay, moron have to do - Kill someone before he is held accxountable???????

"There's no evidence Kanye tried to pilfer the camera?" The video.............
Let's see Kanye attacked the cameraman, wrestled him to the ground, grabbed his camera gear, and.......... there's no evidence?
Yeah right, "celebrity justice" in action.

If that was their son/daughter, husband/wife that was accosted the "FULL arm of the law would come down, for they protect their own at your cost. For reference, you are not "one of their own"

I want to thank those District attorneys and the police for protecting "me", excuse "protect and serve" me. against "all" those who break the law; I
n this case breaking the law with abandon, knowing, "hey nothing's going to happen

Thanks LAPD. I know now I'll sleep better, knowing you are protecting me; well that and the 44mag that I will use to "protect and serve me"

So KIM suddenly decides to become the invisible woman? It really makes her appear to be a total mercenary. She has rejected & dissed "her fans."
