Details are starting to emerge that point to Justin Bieber's arrest being extremely overhyped.
Justin Bieber was driving under the speed limit when he was arrested.Now, this is interesting because what was plastered on every front page everywhere? "Justin Bieber arrest on drag racing and DUI". As someone on Twitter pointed out the Globe and Mail put out an astonishing 15 stories and videos on Justin Bieber that day. Big news, apparently.
The 'Heartbreaker' hitmaker, who was charged with drink driving, resisting arrest and drag racing in Miami, Florida in the early hours of Thursday morning (23.01.14), was reportedly only driving at 27 MPH in the middle of his ''drag race.''
A source told gossip website TMZ.com that the 19-year-old star, who was accused of driving between 55 and 60 MPH in a yellow Lamborghini alongside his friend Khalil in a Ferrari for 15 blocks, had a GPS device installed in the rental cars that tracks speed and it proves both cars were only going 27 MPH at the 3500 block of Pine Tree Drive in the middle of their alleged ''drag race.''
Only one of the cars broke 50 MPH once during the short rental period and it was after the singer and his entourage left a nightclub a few hours earlier.
Police officers also claimed Justin, who is more than a year under the legal drinking age in the US, reeked of alcohol at the scene but his blood alcohol level was barely measurable at .014.
I've seen a few people alluding to this being a cover about the Ukraine riots, but that doesn't make sense. Those will be making the news regardless, it's ongoing, you can't hide those with a single story and I haven't seen any indication they want to. But something else was happening that day, Edward Snowden's first online Q&A and indirect response to Obama's useless whitewash and bullshit NSA "reforms".
His first communication with the public is a pretty big deal, I think, don't you? Seems like a big story, but go ahead and Google that and it's almost like it never happened and most of those who did notice were in Europe. But when Obama was giving his "reforms speech" every news media was listening.
CBC covered that Snowden sees "no chance of a fair trial in the U.S." but at least they give a link to the Q&A session but don't bother to cover any of the actually important content there.
Media, police, and Hollywood. U.S. intelligence has been heavily involved with all 3. As I pointed out yesterday the Five Eyes alliance has a goal of "eliminating privacy worldwide" but they want you to think it's all about "terrorism" even while they fund select terrorists for their own political gain. al-Qaeda are important enough to violate your privacy and freedom but not important enough to drive out of Syria.
