The would-be Quran burner, Terry Jones, is looking at a huge bill from the Gainesville Police for the security they provided during his three ring circus:
The Gainesville Police Department said it spent more than $100,000 while the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office spent an estimated $80,000 during the weekend of the planned demonstration.
"We have 286 sworn officers and almost everyone was working either at the Dove Center or at other soft targets," Senn said. "Unless you were sick or injured you were working" the day the burning was to take place.
Not sure they can do this (it’s their job to respond to such situations, right?), but I can’t say that I’m put out too much by it.
