    The latest is Justin Bieber's bodyguard took a camera from a pap and is now getting arrested for it.

    http://www.ajc.com/news/news/biebers-bodyguard-accused-of-snatching-camera/ndcKx/

    My question, do the pap have the right to do what they do? I don't mean the ones who trespass or try to run cars off the road. I mean the ones like this guy, who was at an amusement park and was told to leave by the bodyguard. Or the ones who get punched by Kanye West when they follow him on a public street.

    I think you can probably figure out whose side I'm on. The photogs have every right to be there and, short of breaking the law, can be as annoying as they want. Those stars worked all their life to get fame and fortune and now they can't deal with it. They actually worked for the fortune part and can't deal with the fame.





    Plus I like the occasional beaver or nip shot they get :mjerk:

    If you are in public, its fair game.

    I agree. Kanye should stay out of sight if he doesn't want his photo taken.

    They may be annoying but I don't think they are doing anything wrong and we are the people buying the gossip mags etc... In ten years Bieber will be begging someone to take his picture.

    Well, this thread failed. If Baltimore Mike had been here, we'd have had a lively discussion.

    This.

    Until you change the laws, being an obnoxious asshole willing to call a celebrity a cunt in public isn't against the law :coffee:

    They were clearly violating the law the way they were chasing her. I never understood why they felt they had to drive like a maniac to try to get away.
