"Houston's funeral costs anger hometown residents"

TODAY Entertainment - Whitney Houston's funeral costs anger hometown residents

New Jersey fans wave at Whitney Houston's hearse
Whitney Houston’s funeral cost her hometown of Newark, New Jersey, $187,000 in police overtime, and some residents aren’t happy about footing the bill.
Local authorities staffed nearly 200 police officers at the New Baptist Church, where the funeral took place, as well as at the funeral home and a private gathering for friends and family. The nearly $200-thousand bill represents about 5 percent of the department's $4 million annual budget....

Comment.......I've had this story for a while and I kind of feel bad for the taxpayers that must foot the bill for the unexpected death of this singer....What usually happens when someone dies the normal way like old age the estate pays the funeral bill. With the unexpected of a drug addict. Lawyers must get involved and sue the estate....I wouldn't get upset I would freeze or attach or whatever they do to the estate until I got paid...Or send the bill to her drug addict ex-husband or what ever he was....
