Bieber Fever

Excessive show of force?  No, I'm not talking about the Kelly Thomas trial in Orange County.  I'm talking about the 11 police vehicles showing up at Justin Bieber's house to investigate an egg throwing incident on January 9.

Eleven cars and double that in law enforcement personnel?  Really?  I don't even want to speculate about the desire by our men in blue to get in on the celebrity limelight so I won't go there.  But in a city that has one of the highest tax rates in the country, is this a good use of my tax contributions?

A more common sense approach is in order.  When I grew up and some kids were caught hurling eggs at a house on Mischief Night, the evening before Halloween, they were handed a garden hose and told to get busy cleaning up.  How about charging the Biebs with a misdemeanor and have him clean up his dirty work?  Then call TMZ and the rest of the paparazzi for some valuable media coverage.  Maybe, just maybe this will shame the teenager sufficiently to think twice about misbehaving.  And it could result in a new hit song for the Biebs, a genuine win-win-win.

I'd like to turn a hose on him....a rubber one.
