Justin Bieber has received strong support from Kylie Jenner over the dramatic police raid that took place at the Canadian's Calabasas, Calif. home yesterday morning.
The 19-year-old was served with a felony search warrant, 11 patrol cars, 12 investigators, 4 helicopters, and a... battering ram, as Los Angeles finest swooped in looking for evidence in connection to a recent house-egging incident in the exclusive area,
Jumping onto Twitter, the 16-year-old reality TV star retweeted messages sent by Justin's friend and music producer, Maejor Ali.
"Thousands of tax payers dollars were just WASTED by sending 12 ARMED officers with GUNS DRAWN in Justin Bieber's home to search for Eggs," read one of the Ali-written posts Kylie endorsed.
"Meanwhile people in Urban communities have a hard time getting ONE officer to come out for DANGEROUS crimes..So many unsolved murders/rapes," was the next retweeted blast.
Bieber's $6.5 million mansion was searched after his neighbor accused the singer of throwing eggs at his house last Thursday. Video footage of expletive-filled argument between the neighbor and an unseen male - allegedly Bieber - was posted by TMZ.
Although the "All That Matters" singer was detained along with seven others for the duration of the raid, he was not arrested.
However, Justin's pal, Lil Za, was arrested on suspicion of felony drug possession - thought to be either ecstasy and Xanax, or cocaine - and was later arrested for felony vandalism for allegedly damaging a phone at the police station he was taken to.
Despite these serious allegations, Kylie continued to express fury over the massive police presence that attended Bieber's house.
Another retweet read, "Shame on you LA County sheriff office and shame on the judge who signed a search warrant for investigating egg-throwing in Calabasas."
Kylie then posted two original tweets which appeared to be in response to hostile feedback on her stance on the Bieber raid.
"I never thought my friends would actually attack someone in the same position as me and my family," she tweeted, adding, "Not on your team no more."
Jenner wasn't the only celebrity to raise eyebrows over the police raid. Kelly Osbourne - who recently spent an evening tagging graffiti with Justin - also posted a critical tweet:
You play you pay but really who gets arrested for throwing a bloody egg! #HollyweirdPolice reportedly removed Bieber's home security system for examination related to the egg-throwing incident which is said to have caused an estimated $20,000 worth of damage to the neighbor's home. As a result, the original misdemeanor vandalism and assault has risen to a felony under California state rules which apply when damages are higher than $400.

The egg-throwing case will reportedly be sent to the L.A District Attorney's office who will decide whether or not to charge Bieber. If he is charged and convicted, he could face a spell in a state or federal prison. As yet no charges have been filed.
"He has not been arrested or exonerated," Lt. Dave Thompson said in a news conference after the police search. "We hope maybe understanding the gravity of this will change some of the behavior."
Do you agree with Kylie that the police raid on Bieber's home was overkill or do you think it was warranted?
