It's cool, y'all — they've got a plan!
SPOILER ALERT: It's weaker than a watered down cup of decaf!
Miley Cyrus, Justin Timberlake, Selena Gomez, and the other A-list "swatting" victims can theoretically relax because the El Lay Pee Dee is on the case!!
But how does the po-po intend to stop malicious pranksters from phoning in fake emergencies at celeb mansions in an effort to trick S.W.A.T. teams into charging in, guns-a-blazin'?
Cmdr. Andrew Smith revealed the forces brilliant new directive:
"It's our belief that the perpetrators of these false police reports are motivated entirely by the publicity these calls receive. We intend to reduce or eliminate that motivation."
So, your big idea is to ignore the problem?
To stop talking about it and hope the assailants get BORED?
Sorry, LAPD, we are not comforted by that at all!!
And we doubt that's helping Ryan Seacrest, Diddy, Ashton Kutcher, Russell Brand, Justin Bieber, or any of the other high-profile targets sleep more soundly, either!
Hopefully these pranksters are found and brought to justice before anyone is seriously hurt!!!
