Whitney Houston's Funeral Cost NJ Crazy High Taxes!

Well this isn't happy news!

Reports are claiming Whitney Houston's funeral cost the state of New Jersey $187,000 in police costs!

Ick…

Despite Newark Councilwoman Mildred Crump insisting "barriers and officers of the law" were necessary to ensure the safety of thousands, residents are calling BS!

Since that's a bill being paid by their taxes, NJ citizens like Quincy Ruffin are appalled, saying they'd rather spend that money on something else:

I think it's absolutely ridiculous when you have people who are unemployed and homeless, people walking up and down the streets.

Other residents feel like Whitney's estate should have paid for the extra security, but sigh, nothing they can do about it now… or is there??

What do U think of this dilemma?

    They btch about them being used for peaceful protests too.. (way unecessary).. but stfu and get over it

    What is the dilemma? The family should pay for the entire cost of the funeral, and that includes whatever security costs.

    Was she a taxpayer in the state of New Jersey? If she was, then she deserves the same treatment that anybody else would get. If other taxpayers get police assistance at funerals, then so should she. Its not her fault she needs so many. And considering the fact that if she WAS a New Jersey taxpayer, she probably paid a fortune to the state government over the years….I think that people like Quincy Ruffin have no right to complain.

    I agree with LilyGirl, also profit was made by almost anyone who works in the service industry during the funeral. That's overtime for restaurants, hotels, gas stations, taxis, airlines, etc, a lot of people traveled to the area to attend or try to catch a glimpse and what does that $187,000 work out to per resident, less than a buck? Suck it up and move on.

    Re: Lilygirl27 – how many tax payers get stuck with funeral costs of love ones they only wish they had the money to pay. no taxes are going to the 99% to help payfor there expenses so why should we help the ones with means to pay. Mabey she should have bought less coke.

    If you have a big to-do, you should have a big bank account.
    Foisting this onto taxpayers? Yikes…she basically died of drug use.

    Okay but I am from NJ & The funeral people. hotels, restaurants & stores made BANK from all the guests, tourists & goings on from the event so it all evened out. they said that in LA over MJ's funeral. People just want a reason to bitch.
    If the State of NJ is so concerned have the Jersey Shore cast do a show to raise money or get those disgusting hags off RHONJ who make the State look like likes it full of buttan dumbasses who don't their heiney from Hoboken. The Giudices alone owe the state more tax money then Whitney's funeral cost.

    Re: Tellitlikeitis – The taxpayers money isn't paying for her funeral. I'm not sure what you are talking about.
