JUSTIN BIEBER CHARGED WITH ASSAULT IN CANADA
AP ^ | Jan 29, 2014 | BY ROB GILLIES

Posted on 01/29/2014 7:57:05 PM PST by Jet Jaguar

Justin Bieber was charged Wednesday with assault for allegedly hitting a Toronto limousine driver several times in the back of the head last month, just hours after his attorney entered a separate not guilty plea in Florida to drunken-driving and other charges.

Bieber turned himself in to a Toronto police station, arriving amid a crush of media and screaming fans. He was charged with one count of assault and is scheduled to appear in court in Toronto on March 10.

Police allege Bieber was one of six people who were picked up by a limousine from a nightclub in the early morning hours of Dec. 30, and there was an altercation while en route to a hotel.

Police said during the altercation one of the passengers hit the limo driver in the back of the head several times.

He is a spoiled little punk who has NO talent. The little 12 and 13 year old girls LOVE him--but that's what those little girls do: love spoiled little punks. It's as harmless as it is stupid.

I remember being 13. My girlfriends and I were IN LOVE with Ed "Kookie" Burns. Kookie, Kookie, lend me your comb! :o)

77 Sunset Strip...SNAP YOUR FINGERS twice...repeat a few times...

I know I'm dating myself. Kookie was the first male in my life. All of us girls LOVED him. We giggled and swooned....TOTALLY harmless and fun. I had a POSTCARD with his photo on it. I took it to school and we all LOVED it.

Geez, was I ever that young?? :o)

He has a tremendous amount of talent

I said this to my kids four years ago, his family( mother was cashing in, leaving him unsupervised and unable to choose friends wisely

I said, and they all said I was stupid, all talented musicians find their passion and improve on it at age 13.

I have many lists of them in my head. The smart ones, or the poor ones or the ones with loving mature humble parents are the ones who are lucky

He peaked too early.

His family is stupid and he has to pay the price ( unless the authorities continue to give into bribes and keep letting him go)

He is surrounded by greed and avarice, with no skills in choosing friends v enemies v frenemies.

His absent father and naive greedy mother are to blame

He needs help. And those who’ve collected millions from him are very busy

But to say he’s not talented no. That’s where this started

The Bieb suddenly seems to have Lohan-like problems .... substance abuse, getting into continuous trouble, etc. He needs help, plain and simple. While he’s being attended to, it would be nice if Canada kept him ..... I’m getting sick and tired of the latest iteration of the Adventures of Beiber by the easily distracted and increasingly ‘juvenile’ US media.

Family? He was raised by a single mother. Pattie Mallette had him when she was only 17 too.

Oh, he was asked to leave. A foreigner racing through palm beach in an Italian race car is escorted home to Canada. He’s not coming back.

Was probably faster than 60 mph

He is a minor and a has been waste

Can we just pulease blame his parents his sperm donor father and confused mother. And stop using him as a hate object?

They cashed in on his talent left him in the company of wealthy criminals.

Took his childhood away from him

I agree with your carefully thought out presentation.

I saw the incredible media frenzy as depicted on Canadian television. The pushing, the reaching, the shoving, the cameras. I said to my liberal wife (bless her) "has the world gone mad?"

Well I do know it hasn't. I also opined that hundreds of crazy 19 year olds are doing hundreds of crazy things. Hopefully it will all blow over. I shake my head and can only curse the damned media.

Excuse the ramble.

She has family.

The kid also has a father. He is his family

He cares about no one but himself

Are you letting them off the hook because they are irresponsible?

Dysfunctional “family” is not family.

And no, he’s responsible for himself now. Sadly, he’s got to learn the hard way.

He has a tremendous amount of talent
If you say so. I haven't listened to him. I can't even look at him. It's like looking at a baby.

I said this to my kids four years ago, his family( mother was cashing in, leaving him unsupervised and unable to choose friends wisely
I said, and they all said I was stupid, all talented musicians find their passion and improve on it at age 13.
I have many lists of them in my head. The smart ones, or the poor ones or the ones with loving mature humble parents are the ones who are lucky
He peaked too early.

Peaking early is the STORY of Hollywood children and teenagers...and their mothers who SELL THEM DOWN THE RIVER...and I hope they burn in H - e - double hockey sticks.

His family is stupid and he has to pay the price ( unless the authorities continue to give into bribes and keep letting him go)
He is 19 years old so he is, theoretically, a man and has to stand on his own. My opinion: he is doomed. But then, I've seen that same story from all the way back to Natalie Wood. Sad story, but they DO have the money to help with the sadness.

He is surrounded by greed and avarice, with no skills in choosing friends v enemies v frenemies.
His absent father and naive greedy mother are to blame
He needs help. And those who’ve collected millions from him are very busy.

Nothing new here. Same story with SO many of the people who go to Hollywood. He CAN opt out if he wants. He's a big boy and can make his own choices.

But to say he’s not talented no. That’s where this started.
My idea of talent: CLASSICAL guitarists.
Here's a list of 20th century geniuses.
Laurindo Almeida (1917–1995)(Brasil)
María Luisa Anido (1907–1996) (Argentina, Spain)
Agustín Pío Barrios (1885–1944) (Paraguay)
Abel Carlevaro (1916–2001) (Uruguay)
Leif Christensen 1950–1988
Alirio Díaz (b. 1923) (Venezuela)
Sila Godoy (b. 1919)
Alexandre Lagoya (1929–1999) (France)
Antonio Lauro (1917–1986) (Venezuela)
Miguel Llobet (1878–1938)
Sergei Orekhov (1935–1998)
Emilio Pujol (1886–1980) (Spain)
Ida Presti (1924–1967)
Celedonio Romero (1913–1996) (Spain)
Regino Sainz de la Maza (1896–1981) (Spain)
**Andrés Segovia (1893–1987) (Spain)
José Tomás (1934–2001) (Spain)
**Narciso Yepes (1927–1997) (Spain)
Frantz Casseus (1915-1993) (Haiti)
**I have those records somewhere.

I also LOVE classical piano. I inherited that from my father and one of his sisters.

His father reappeared once he got rich. They are now drinking buddies.

Parents are so innocent in this culture

It is nauseating to watch

He’s not old enough to buy a beer

Learn the hard way.

Is he hated because he has money?

Do Freepers live in the woods, on run down homes, hating wealthy people for having money?

Sick

There are no dysfunctional families. This kid’s childhood was stolen from him by his family.

He’ll pay the price. No one will care if he learns

I called it years ago.

Just a break. Please. He’s going into custody. He’s not old enough to buy a drink

Stop

He’ll pay the price.

Hatred on this site for people with money wll bury it. Mark my word

He was put into this at age 12. You think he can make good decisions?

FWIW, I’m with you on this one stanne.
Any parent here who gives a crap about a very immature and misguided 19 year old, should feel some empathy for the vultures that are pecking at this kid.

Unless there are people here who happen to know him, know his family, know his inner circle and know those who he is bound to by contracts, I’d much prefer to give this kid the compassion I feel he deserves. The music industry is loaded with sick and greedy f’ers who couldn’t care less about him.

Connie Stevens was America’s prettiest teenage girl back then. Haven’t heard much from her lately. There are likely very few good roles on TV for women her age, unless you want to play Shelly Winter-Evil Step Mother type roles. There’s an opening for Rosie O Donald.

I have no opinion either way actually. I just hope he can work out his issues before he harms someone else.

FWIW I read elsewhere that the most of the reports about what happened in FL were way OTT, and that the two “racing” cars were actually going below the speed limit. I figure in both cases it’s for the courts to sort out.

I absolutely can't stand the twerp or anyone else who acts like him...

But credit is due. He and whoever handled his brand did it rather well and he does have a pretty large following, doesn't matter the age or relevance, the money is rolling in so it works. The problems are obvious; he was without proper guidance are the critical times in his life. Now, hes a single, 19 year-old male turned loose with millions of dollars at his disposal... what would anyone expect? I can't even begin to imagine the trail of debauchery I would have left in my wake at 19 with a bottomless wallet.

He'll grow up in 6-8 more years and hopefully someone gets a leash on him soon so he's not penniless by that time.

Ramble?

No

Parents are let off the hook. The kid, if anyone cares to get informed, has been sheltered from life since age 12, because of his talent. He’s been used and mow has no life skills, no idea who is a friend, including family, nor what to do with his life

I appreciate any reasoned input

It seems the kid tried when he was starting out. Remember the religious movie he made and how he told eveybody how he wasn’t ashamed to be seen praying? I think his mother raised him right- but so many making fun of him (jealousy over how the young girls love him) the rapper trash moving in on him-as well as other hangers-on...he was just too young and inexperienced to handle the fame money and craziness. JMHO.
