Okay, this borders on ridiculous. I get it. They need to recoup costs... but really?

OUTRAGE: Newark Residents Hit With $187,000 Police OT Bill For Whitney Houston Funeral

Locals Say Considering How They Were Treated, The Cost Is Hardly Justified...

some taxpayers say as much as they loved the pop star they’re not happy about footing the high security costs.

Houston’s family brought her back to Newark, where thousands of people lined the streets to get a glimpse of the hearse carrying her body. Fans even tried to get close to the church where her private funeral was held.

It was a farewell to a beloved star that touched the hearts of many, but it also cost the city of Newark more than $187,000 in police overtime, representing 5 percent of the $4 million budget for the year.
