Should the city of Los Angeles be paying for Michael Jackson's memorial?
The city will be picking up the tab for security, trash removal, the city’s fire department and police will also have to be present taking much needed resources away from the rest of the city. The city is also asking for private donations to fund the effort.
The Jackson family is paying nothing towards these services so the funds are coming directly from the taxpayers and it is not going to be a small price tag.
