(Not so) Shocking: Bieber in trouble with the law again

As many Sacramento residents have probably heard, there's this guy out there who goes by the name Justin Bieber -- and he's kind of a big deal. Well, at least in his own mind. But no matter what your opinion of Justin Bieber is, he is still entitled to the same rights as you when he is accused of a crime. Even if you think he has no talent, or that he disregards the law, or that he's generally irresponsible, that doesn't mean he isn't entitled to some basic criminal rights.

For the record, we're not saying that you think about Justin Bieber in the ways described above. But he is a very divisive figure, and sometimes the way a person is depicted can affect the way criminal proceedings go against him or her -- even though they are supposed to be entitled to a fair and unbiased trial.

Anyways, this is a long way of saying that Justin Bieber is in the news again for possible criminal conduct. The police are investigating if Bieber robbed a woman of her cell phone. According to a report, Bieber took a woman's cellphone after he thought that she was taking photos of him. It is unknown if the woman did, in fact, take photos of Bieber or if the conduct he displayed constitutes robbery or attempted robbery -- or any criminal act, for that matter.

Bieber has been in the criminal spotlight multiple times before. He is accused of vandalism and driving under the influence in two separate incidents, and he was recently detained at an airport, though no formal action was taken in that case.
