Miley Cyrus surely isn't alone in her reaction to a paparazzo getting killed last night in an attempt to get a nighttime traffic shot of what he thought was Justin Bieber being pulled over.

But Miley is the one who's asking for help to make a difference.

"@kenbakernow if you ever wanna help me get involved and really try to make a change hit me up. @justinbieber you too," the pop star tweeted to E!'s chief news correspondent, Ken Baker.

"@kenbakernow you can have a big part in making that change if the photos stop being made entertainment," Miley added. "There's plenty of news without paps."

Responded Baker: "@MileyCyrus honestly, I can't believe this hasn't happened before. So many super sketchy street ambushes, all for stupid pics."

Chris Guerra, 29, was hit by a car last night at around 5:50 p.m. while crossing Sepulveda Boulevard near the Getty Center Drive exit of Los Angeles' 405 Freeway. LAPD said that the California Highway Patrol officer who pulled Bieber's Ferrari over (Bieber was not in the car at the time) witnessed Guerra cross four lanes of traffic to get a picture of the scene and he was hit while returning to the other side of the street.

"Hope this paparazzi/JB accident brings on some changes in '13 Paparazzi are dangerous! Wasn't Princess Di enough of a wake up call?!" Miley also tweeted.

"It is unfair for anyone to put this on to Justin's [conscience] as well! This was bound to happen! Your mom teaches u when your a child not to play in the street! The chaos that comes with the paparazzi acting like fools makes it impossible for anyone to make safe choices."

Ironically, the first charges filed under the driving-related anti-paparazzi law passed in California in 2010 were against a pap accused of speeding after Bieber—and a judge threw the case out, ruling that the law, as it was written, could end up overreaching in its attempt to crack down on reckless driving in the pursuit of gathering news.
