          Dr. Phil Now: Targeting the Paparazzi

          March 11, 2008

           
          They’ve been called wolves, snakes and vultures, and now Hollywood stars want them to back off. They’re the so-called stalkarazzi who stop at nothing to get that million dollar photo. What should happen to photographers and videographers who chase celebrities through traffic, harass them and hunt them down like prey? Should they go to jail, or do celebrities give up their right to privacy when they become famous? Los Angeles City Councilman Dennis Zine has created an anti-paparazzi proposal that would impose a personal safety bubble of several feet around public figures who are deemed to be paparazzi targets. The initiative has been dubbed the Britney Law after Britney Spears’ psychiatric emergency, when the ambulance transporting her was surrounded by police cars and helicopters to shield her from a swarm of 60 photographers. The resulting drain on city resources cost the taxpayers $25,000.
