by at . Comments

New information has come in regarding the death of a paparazzi member who was trailing Justin Bieber's car in Los Angeles last night.

TMZ has identified the celebrity gossip reporter as Chris Guerra.

Guerra was reportedly trailing Bieber throughout New Year's Day, phoning someone associated with his photo agency around 5:30 p.m. and telling him Bieber's car had just pulled into the Beverly Hills Four Seasons.

Guerra then told his colleague that Bieber's Ferrari was pulling away and he had to follow it.

As we now know, Bieber was not actually in the vehicle when Guerra later spotted in getting pulled over by highway patrol.

He was asked to move back by a police officer and was struck dead by an oncoming vehicle.

Guerra was in his late 20s; had been working in a Las Vegas casino until moving to Los Angeles last spring; and was unmarried without any children. For the past few months, he had been assigned exclusively to the Justin Bieber beat.

This is so sad. The LA Times blog covered this story in such a callous way. The victim here was the photographer, not Bieber who wasn't even in the car! Also, you can tell when the victim is a minority by the way the Times covers the story. When they made Bieber seem like the victim, and only mentioned the photgrapher at the end of the article, I knew the photographer was a minority, and I was right. If that had been a white photographer killed, there would have been sympathy, and the driver who killed him would have been charged.

Black or white, he got what he deserved. Leave the stars alone. We don't need to know every detail of their lives. We all have skeletons in our closets and wants to keep it there. They should all die one by one.

If the photographer was "white?" You are a raciest bigot and you should be ashamed of yourself.
