Justin Bieber - Justin Bieber Calls For Crackdown After Paparazzo Death

Justin Bieber has called for specialist laws to be put in place after the death of a photographer who was hit by an SUV while taking photographs of the young singer's Ferrari in Los Angeles. Bieber is a favorite of the Californian paps who seemingly put their lives on the line for a good snap, though the Canadian says enough is enough.

The 29-year-old photographer had just snapped shots of Bieber's white Ferrari when he was struck by an on-coming vehicle and was killed. In a statement released by Island Def Jam Music Group, Bieber said, "Hopefully this tragedy will finally inspire meaningful legislation and whatever other necessary steps to protect the lives and safety of celebrities, police officers, innocent public bystanders, and the photographers themselves." The accident has prompted others to back Bieber's call for legislation, with Sean Burke of the Paparazzi Reform Initiative saying, "I can only hope that [the] events will bring better understanding to the various issues at play in the Wild West atmosphere that commonly manifests when paparazzi are in pursuit of a celebrity." Miley Cyrus - another favorite of the paparazzi - tweeted, "brings on some changes in '13 Paparazzi are dangerous!"

Last year, a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge threw out charges related to an anti-paparazzi law in a case involving Bieber being chased by photographed Paul Raef. Passed in 2010, the law created punishments for paparazzi who drove dangerously to obtain images.
