Justin Bieber Responds to Attempted Robbery Report

Justin Bieber has responded to the report that he tried to steal a woman’s cell phone after she was about to take a photo of him.

Here is his statement via his Twitter account: “It is hard to defend myself and my privacy every moment of the day. Then to see rumors. The truth will set u free. My mom raised me to be kind to others. I get judged, harassed, and I try to take the high road. Sometimes it isn’t easy. But we keep trying. I will continue to be the man my mother raised. I love people and I will try to be kind even when things are not fair. Don’t believe rumors. Thanks for those who stick by me and those that help me grow everyday. I love you. Off to have fun and smile with friends. I’m human. I feel. I hurt. But I got thick skin too. I can handle it. I love you.”

The LAPD announced that they were investigating the attempted robbery after the woman filed a complaint.

    Did his mama teach him to throw eggs and damage other people’s property?
    Did his mama teach him to speed through residential streets endangering innocent people?
    Did his mama teach him to pee in a bucket and leave it for the poor, underpaid janitor to clean up?
    Did his mama teach him to spit on his fans?
    Did his mama teach him to get high on drugs every day?
    Etc.
    Etc.
    Etc.
    If he’s trying to be a good man, he’s going about it all wrong, wouldn’t you say.
    Come on fans.
    His actions are indefensible.
    How can you respect anyone this childish, arrogant, and egotistical?

    @ivan: They probably want to to paint a bad image of him.
    Why? I don’t know, but it’s sh!tty of them.
    He’s got a good heart and nobody can take that away from him.

    But the danger with the media is also when people participate in their game.
    I really love the philosopher Socrate.
    He looked for the truth in everything.
    You should really read his stuff, it gives you a whole new perspective on communications, how people manipulate the truth, lies, truth, good and bad, human beings…
    His philosophy really opened my eyes about a lot of things i felt but couldn’t quite understand about myself, other people and society.

    Here are two examples:

    1srt:

    (In ancient Greece (469 – 399 BC), Socrates was widely lauded for his wisdom. One day the great philosopher came upon an acquaintance who ran up to him excitedly and said, “Socrates, do you know what I just heard about one of your students?”

    “Wait a moment,” Socrates replied. “Before you tell me I’d like you to pass a little test. It’s called the Test of Three.”

    “Test of Three?”

    “That’s right,” Socrates continued. “Before you talk to me about my student let’s take a moment to test what you’re going to say. The first test is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?”

    No,” the man said, “actually I just heard about It.”

    “All right,” said Socrates. “So you don’t really know if it’s true or not. Now let’s try the second test, the test of Goodness. Is what you are about to tell me about my student something good?”

    “No, on the contrary…”

    “So,” Socrates continued, “you want to tell me something bad about him even though you’re not certain it’s true?”

    The man shrugged, a little embarrassed.

    Socrates continued. “You may still pass though, because there is a third test – the filter of Usefulness. Is what you want to tell me about my student going to be useful to me?”

    “No, not really.”

    “Well,” concluded Socrates, “if what you want to tell me is neither True nor Good nor even Useful, why tell it to me at all?”

    The man was defeated and ashamed. This is the reason Socrates was a great philosopher and held in such high esteem. It also explains why he never found out that Plato was banging his wife.”)

    2nd:

    “Socrates’s contributions to philosophy were a new method of approaching knowledge, a conception of the soul as the seat both of normal waking consciousness and of moral character, and a sense of the universe as purposively mind-ordered. His method, called dialectic, consisted in examining statements by pursuing their implications, on the assumption that if a statement were true it could not lead to false consequences. The method may have been suggested by Zeno of Elea, but Socrates refined it and applied it to ethical problems.

    His doctrine of the soul led him to the belief that all virtues converge into one, which is the good, or knowledge of one’s true self and purposes through the course of a lifetime. Knowledge in turn depends on the nature or essence of things as they really are, for the underlying forms of things are more real than their experienced exemplifications. This conception leads to a teleological view of the world that all the forms participate in and lead to the highest form, the form of the good. Plato later elaborated this doctrine as central to his own philosophy. Socrates’s view is often described as holding virtue and knowledge to be identical, so that no man knowingly does wrong. Since virtue is identical with knowledge, it can be taught, but not as a professional specialty as the Sophists had pretended to teach it. However, Socrates himself gave no final answer to how virtue can be learned.”

    @François: yeah, that’s true, I studied socrate in school. It really is useful for today’s world. Especially on how some people will manipulate other people and words into lies and influence. how some push others into ways of thinking and spreading lies. And what the truth is all about. It makes me want to read him again, so thanks. :)

    We saw the “kind” side of Justin in the video of the egg throwing and heard his “kind” words. We also saw the “kind” behavior in the deposition in Florida. We also saw a clip of his “kindness” when he jumped out of a car and went after a photog overseas and was held back by his own bodyguard. If he is so “kind”, why are there charges pending against him in Canada, FL, and CA. Why is their charges in GA against his bodyguard who took a photog’s camera? This story seems like a pattern of behavior, not a failed attempt to be kind.

    “Thanks for those who stick by me”

    @?: Because they’re as idiotic as their idol. Every single one of these people on here defending this little waste of oxygen are probably aspiring punks themselves and think his actions are cute. That’s why our nation is in such a sad state.

    @34 Says:

    Would you think that he was adorable if he intentionally caused thousands of dollars worth of damage to your home and LAUGHED about it?
    He’s old enough to know better. That’s all there is to say.
    He needs what we call a ‘come to Jesus’ meeting. None of his family or friends will be invited, since they do nothing but laugh and make excuses for his antics. He needs a good, quick kick in his rear.

    Yes he does like a bratty kid sometimes…but he actually IS a teenage boy. On top of that, it’s very easy to comment and say shame on you to a celebrity..but you have you understand this; imagine never being able to leave your house, go anywhere or be with anyone at anytime where you’re not either surrounded cameras within inches of your face or worried someone you know could be recording you or taking a photo of you. They do choose that life correct…but it doesn’t mean they should have complete tolerance all the time.

    Paps weren’t hounding him when he committed all of the crimes that he is accused of. What’s your excuse for that?
    Not applying any blame to him is as bad as that kid who got off after killing people when he was driving drunk. His lawyers claimed that it was his rich parent’s fault because they didn’t discipline him. They called it “affluenza”. Is that what Bieber is? Too rich to be responsible for his actions?
    So stupid. You fans cannot justify his actions. No matter what you say. He’s an arrogant, privileged @ss. And he’ll only get worse.

    Actions speak louder than words, i.e. pissing in a bucket, throwing eggs, harrassing flight attendants, etc. Sorry, Justin, but your words are just just white noise.
