The Miami-Dade Police Dept. is pooh-poohing criticism that it crossed the thin blue line last Friday by giving LeBron James a police escort to the Jay Z concert.

Dept. officials tell TMZ ... the officer who escorted LeBron has received "informal counseling" but that's it.   LeBron bragged on his Instagram video that traffic was at a crawl as he followed the police car with lights ablaze down the wrong way of the street.

As we reported ... Jay Z had announced he would not start the show until LeBron arrived.

It's nice to be famous, right?

If Jayz wouldn't start without him, then Lebron should have been responsible enough to get there in time. Or, more appropriately, Jayz should have STARTED WITHOUT HIM.

Cmon people, who cares! If it was a celebrity you liked, you most likely would think it's no big deal. Haters gonna hate!

First off that ugly j-z wouldn't start a concert for paying fans unless this idiot was there...WRONG. Then police think it's the right thing to do is give the idiot a personal ride to the concert so the concert can begin. Who care about other crimes going on. Yup...NO BIG DEAL.

Wonder how much LeBron paid for his ticket to the show? Maybe Jay-z should be more interested in the people who actually made him rich and famous, they should probably come first.

I guess I'm different than most here. If I were sitting in the audience at that concert, I'd be more pissed at Jay Z. The folks in the seats PAID hard earned money to be there, and Jay Z says he's not starting until his rich friend, who of course wouldn't pay a cent to go arrives??
Talk about no respect for the people who made you who you are.

Add this to the long list of irrelevant and unimportant 'issues' that TMZ talks about. I accidentally tuned in to TMZ one night and they were literally asking whether Katie Holmes had a vagina on her knee.

OK    

Giving Lebron James a ride is much more important then protecting and serving the little people.

SoWhat    

If they consider it to be no big deal what they did then why don't they do it for every other person that was stuck in traffic trying to get there? They don't do it because it is a big deal and it's illegal to do it, doesn't matter if you're broke or a millionaire. The police departments investigation into it turned out like I figured it would, they protect their own and say nothing to see here everything's good.
