Justin Bieber: the next celebrity libertarian?

After a neighbor complained about an egging, the millionaire teen singer’s home was raided early this morning by — read it and belieb it — twelve cops:

One person was arrested in Justin Bieber’s home after Los Angeles law enforcement executed a felony search warrant early Tuesday morning, showing up to his Calabasas, Calif., mansion with 12 detectives in about eight patrol cars.

According to TMZ, Bieber’s longtime friend rapper Lil Za was arrested for narcotics possession.

Lt. David Thompson told reporters at a press conference that cocaine was in plain view when deputies entered the home.

The Sheriff’s Dept. was investigating if Bieber was connected to an egg-throwing incident last week that caused damage to a neighbor’s home. They obtained a felony search warrant and entered the home at about 8 a.m. PST.

Thompson said that the team did not know what they would encounter at the home.

“It’s always better to air on the side of safety,” he said. “We did contact seven or eight people in the house so I was thankful we had 12 detectives.”

Contrast this with a recent report that exposes Drug Enforcement Agents meeting with Mexican drug cartels, breaking all sorts of laws, treaties and ethical codes:

Without the presence of Mexican authorities, as bilateral agreements stipulate, without informing the Mexican government, the agents of the DEA met with members of the cartels in Mexican territory, to obtain information about their rivals and at the same time and establish at the same time a network of informants of narco-traffickers, who signed cooperation agreements, subject to results, so that they can obtain future benefits, including charges being dropped in the United States.

In the 2014 war on drugs… the DEA provides informant immunity for drug cartel leaders — who very likely have blood on their hands.

In the 2014 war on drugs… Justin Bieber’s house is raided for an eight ball of coke while the LAPD airheads of safety pretend he’s the next Al Capone.

In the 2014 war on drugs… we’ve gone full retard.

Here at Hammer of Truth we would gladly see every silly law book thrown at the Biebs if he’s truly involved in a juvenile egg-throwing incident. We also value the freedom for Bieber and his associates to put whatever crazy nonsense into their own bodies (hey, we’re cool). Not to mention probably having the freedom to not have twelve police officers kick down your door at 8 o’clock in the morning for an incident that had taken place a week prior (the timing on all of this is interesting).

The police state (courtesy LAPD and the war on drugs) has come for Bieber and his friends, it may only be a matter of time before he speaks out against it in a very libertarian tone.

    A felony egging? I want to see that warrant. I suppose the warrant said they were looking for eggs.

    Love it… DEA “has gone full retard.” You got that from a movie, ‘eh?

    “You never go full retard… everyone knows you never go full retard…”

    I though y’all were a left-libertarian news site, not full-blown libertarian. Being un-Politically Correct is a sure sign of pure libertarianism, not left-libertarian. Congrats! I’ll be reading you guys more often now.

    God, that is the last things libertarians need, another spoiled, privileged brat who thinks he is entitled to treat others any way he wants. Sorry, this kid has wrecked havoc on his neighborhood over and over again, with no regard for others. That is not libertarianism, that is just being a juvenile delinquent who thinks his fame and money should make him exempt from respecting the rights of others.

    As for a “felony egging” the felony comes in depending on the amount of damage done to another person’s property.
