Police Send Terry Jones a $180,000 Bill


Terry Jones, the pastor who almost burned a bunch of Korans and then decided not to, is getting stuck with a $180,000 bill by two local police forces for security expenses necessitated by the planned burning. CNN reports that “officers secured malls in the region, the University of Florida’s football stadium, and areas around the church in the days leading up to the planned event.” Seems kind of strange and unfair for Jones to be charged for that … but who cares, the guy’s a jerk. Cue the Nelson laugh!
