Despite the fact that some locals showed up with flowers for the photogs in an effort to promote peace between the two groups, the Malibu Sheriff's department still felt the need to restrict the paps' access to the beach, saying their presence was a "public safety concern."

We find it interesting that they refused to allow hard- working folks (who pay taxes) onto a public beach, yet made no attempts to confront the locals drinking alcohol on said beach (a Malibu no-no).

Does that seem fair?
