Celebrity and Paparazzi Altercations

The recent tragedy that claimed the life of paparazzo Christopher Guerra has led to some celebrities, including Justin Bieber, to call for stricter legislation protecting them from the sometimes rabid photo-journalists.

"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," Bieber said in the statement released by Island Def Jam Music Group.

Guerra was killed after being struck by a vehicle while trying to nab a shot of Bieber in Los Angeles.
