What the fuck?

In fact: what the fucketty fucking fuck?

A music industry executive has been arrested for refusing to send a tweet to out-of-control fans of the teenage pop sensation Justin Bieber.

Officers wanted Roppo to cancel the 15-year-old Canadian star's album signing at a shopping centre in Long Island, New York after the crowd of pop fans swelled to 3,000 and began to turn aggressive.

Police claimed that the executive's refusal to intervene led to several people in the crowd sustaining minor injuries.

Roppo has now been charged with assault, endangering the welfare of a child, obstruction of governmental administration, reckless endangerment and criminal nuisance.

At a court hearing on Saturday, prosecutors condemned Rocco's "reckless behaviour" and claimed he helped create "very dangerous situation" with children being pushed against the glass of a second-floor balcony.

"It's a miracle more kids and more people weren't injured," said Diane Peress, the Nassau assistant district attorney.

Roppo denies all the charges and his record label has expressed astonishment that he faces criminal charges for not Twittering.

Astonishment? Jesus. I'd be suing the police for "aggravated extraction of urine".

Observers have also questioned how sending a tweet would have calmed a crowd of delirious pop fans.

Ya think?

Surely, the police have the powers to shut down an event on 'public safety' grounds. So, why would they need the manager to do anything?

Something smells fishy about this one...

Perhaps if Gordon had sent a timely Tweet to Tony, we could have avoided involvement in Iraq?

You must remember the police HAVE to blame someone. They must have records to show it is not their fault. There's now no such thing as an accident on the roads, it was an RTA, it's now called Road Traffic Collision because 'someone' will be done for it.

Three thousand hyped-up teenagers waiting to see their idol, and he's supposed to tell them 'it's off'?

He'd be lucky to get out alive!

I didn't realise refusal to use the internet was illegal in America. Here it's rapidly approaching a state of 'the other way round'.

Just cos you may live near Wells, it doesn't make every line of 'Hot Fuzz' real. RTA's are not called something else to apportion blame, the police won't even get involved if there are no injuries or the road isn't blocked. Sorry Atheist but get your facts right before spreading any more misinformation via the internet, it's bad enough as it is!

I think the problem seems to be that it was in Canada rather than America, LI, more fucking French bastards, as if we didn't already have to put up with enough crap from the cunts - FROG CUNTS!
