MJ’s funeral was costly

It is sad to see the passing of Michael Jackson, but reality kicks in once the bill is handed out for his funeral services…ouch.

The Associated Press reports that Los Angeles spent $1.4 million on city services for Tuesday’s memorial service for Michael Jackson, including $1.1 million in overtime pay for 4,173 police officers at the Staples Center, Forest Lawn cemetery and elsewhere. So far, the city says it has received about $17,000 in donations from fans towards those costs.
