Then he picks it all up off the street and puts it in his own car. Methinks Odom will pay dearly for that moment of madness.

Best part is when he stops to pose with a fan.
I hope he has to write a big check.

It wasn't a photographer, it was a paparazzo.  I don't want to be associated with those scum just because they also happen to shoot photos.

Never heard of him, sports guy I guess. They've been making jokes here on the radio about how there have been 33 NFL players arrested since the SuperBowl!:-))

In this instance he's Khloe Kardashian's main squeeze.

But, yup, he's a basketball "hero" in his own right - who last played with the Los Angeles Clippers.

Celebrity trash married to some other celebrity trash. Need I say more?

Paps or not, they too are people and citizens.

Insurance will settle the costs.

But criminal liability can also be leveled, if the other party would prosecute.

Odom got into the guy's car, took the gear, smashed it, and put it in the trunk of his own car.

Grand theft, for starters.

A pox on all their houses.

True... celebrities and sports figures are instructed by their agents and publicists to ignore paparazzi and avoid them whenever possible.  To take this kind of abusive action against ANY person, photographer or not, is ignorant and uncalled for.  He will pay DEARLY for that fuckup... wink

I am no fan of the behavior of the outrageous paparazzi. Some of the worst should be in jail. It says a lot about the state of our society that there is a market for a lot of what they do.

But with all that, it doesnt give some asshole the right to assault anyone, to threaten them, to trash their belongings. If the paparazzi was breaking the law--call a cop.

I hope the asshole gets HAMMERED financially, I hope if he broke any laws he is ACTIVELY prosecuted and tried for his actions.

If there were really any justice in the world--- no paparazzi would ever photograph him, or any of the Kardashian clan again---let them drop into the oblivion they deserve.

I know---far too much to hope for.

That's called "paying the toll"

Those kind of photographers deserve that to happen to their gear about once a year.  How much money do they make stealing the privacy of others' lives?  They don't have jobs....they are just stalkers.

Hmmm... have you met them?

I have and I can say that they are both very nice and easy going.

I think the video is great. It clearly shows that Lamar was moving calmly and slowly... didn't even lose his temper and trashed the Paps gear after been given the usual shit from the Paparazzi.

The paparazzi like to get angry images so they provoke the hell out of who they are shooting. I this case the ass holes were grilling him about his marriage... baiting him hoping he would lose his cool, yell or look at them with a crazed expression.

Instead they got a surprize.. he cooly went over and trashed their gear!!!

It was his way of saying he won't have a tandrum, but there will be consequences if you fuck with me or my loved ones.

I really love the way he enjoys posing with a fan and it clearly shows that he was perfectly calm and collected.

Both parties behaved poorly in this situation.  Paparazzi are not photographers, they're parasites who happen to use photographic equipment.  Please move this to the correct forum.

Wow... Well, that is going to be expensive...  But I'll wager that the B-ball player can afford it and that the photographer will be well compensated providing he doesn't try to get too greedy. Just another American faire-tale ending.

Hello?

Celebrities need the Paparazzi.

As much as the Paparazzi need them.

Otherwise, well, we'd forget who they are?

It's symbiotic relationship.

Except for when those very same celebrities want to promote something, then the paparazzi are their best friends.  It's a two way street, and both sides are on the take.

Kind of disappointed to see Fred apparently condoning criminal damage and theft here!

The best (and most honourable) thing he could have done would have been to ignore them and walk away.





Just my $0.02

They wouldn't have a job if most of the people on this planet didn't read the trash magazines they sell the stuff to. Simple supply and demand. You can't fault them for it.

I agree Fred...these paparazzi are asking for that sort of behavior every time they stalk, cajole, harass a celebrity. I think the police should have shown up and given Odem a $10 fine for littering and that's it. It's a shame we protect these scum under the guise that they're photographers.

So an obnoxious jerk isn't protected under the law? A misdemeanor offense (if it is in fact unlawful) is countered with a clear felony offense?

That'd be a place I wouldn't want to live; I'd be too worried that my neighbors might think I'm obnoxious and destroy and steal my property.

We don't protect these scum under the guise that they're photographers; we protect them because what they're doing is (usually) legal. We might--probably should--change that, but right now, most of what they're doing falls into the obnoxious, offensive, rude, and socially unacceptable...but marginally legal.

Destroying someone else's property and/or stealing it, on the other hand, isn't legal.

Call me cynical.

The indecent may have been staged for the publicity - you never know. 
The photos/video would be worth more to the tabloids than the broken equipment (which may have already been broken equipment).

Let me ask you Kevin, what would you do if you were repeatedly on the recieving end of insults to you beloved wife and children.

I wish more people on this forum would understand the modus operandi that so many Papperazzi are using these days. They throw out insults about infedelity, insult kids etc etc and all to get a few shots of a famous person losing their cool.

There are some "Celebrity Candid" photographers that have a knack for doing things the right way. They keep their distance get some great shots.... I've even seen them wave to the famous person first asking for the green light to get some shots.

What I have also seen is inconsiderate Paparazzi knocking over family members of guests in their pathetic scramble to go and shove their camera and flash right into the famous persons face. I've even seen them use an ND filter so as to blast more flash into their face. Regarding the Papparazi in the photo I've seen him before in the flock of vermin that follow the stars around Malibu and LA. Their behaviour is
unacceptable, rude as hell and often dangerous even to bystanders.

Agreed. Just because someone is famous, doesnt mean that they should have a camera pointed at them whenever they stepped outside. Especially if they have children, and family members with them.

If the camera is a tool-used to create art, then the paparazzi are like axe murderers.
