Riri’s father is pissed off at the L.A.P.D. for the release of the photo above. Somebody’s head is going to roll for this one:
Rihanna’s dad is disappointed with the way the Los Angeles police are handling his daughter’s domestic violence case, he tells PEOPLE. “Sloppy work on their part,”…… says Ronald Fenty, speaking to PEOPLE via telephone from Barbados Friday, shortly after the emergence of a graphic photo Thursday reportedly showing Rihanna’s injuries from the alleged assault by boyfriend Chris Brown.The Los Angeles Police Department issued a statement asking for the public to help with “information concerning the unauthorized release of the photograph.” “A violation of this type is considered serious misconduct, with penalties up to and including termination,” police said. Brown, 19, who released a statement saying he is “sorry and saddened,” was arrested on a felony criminal threat charge Feb. 8. His case has not yet been presented by police to prosecutors
Here is your girl Rihanna after Breezy beat her down to the white meat. Poor thang. Look how that queer knotted-up her forehead. What a horrible way to spend your 21st b-day, which is today by the way (Feb 20th). How can some people defend that punk after looking at this picture? SMH.
If our troops on the street catch up to Breezy, we will be sure to have a “word with him”.
Check out the police statement below and a vid of last year’s b-day festivities:
Following an entertainment website’s publishing last night of a closeup photograph of what appears to be Rihanna’s badly beaten face, the Los Angeles Police Department has launched an internal investigation into the source of the leak. “The photograph has the appearance of one taken during an official Domestic Violence investigation. The Los Angeles Police Department takes seriously its duty to maintain the confidentiality of victims of domestic violence,” the LAPD said via a statement released on Thursday.”The Department launched an immediate internal investigation and subsequently filed a personnel complaint. A violation of this type is considered serious misconduct, with penalties up to and including termination.”
The LAPD has not officially identified Rihanna as the alleged victim in the Chris Brown domestic violence case, but it said in its statement that last night it received “numerous inquiries about the release of a photograph associated with a domestic violence incident that occurred on February 8, 2009, involving entertainer Chris Brown.”
The police statement encourages anyone with information about the source of the photo to call or visit the department’s website.
