Michael Jackson Burial Triples in Price

8/27/2009 3:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonThe Jackson family's decision to move Michael's burial from a Saturday to a Thursday is gonna cost some serious dough -- at least three times the original price!

According to the Glendale police, the cost for the weekend service would have ran about $50,000 -- 90% of which goes to police handling street closures, security and perimeter control.

But officials say the Jackson family will now have to fork over "at least triple the price" to contract the cops for a weekday burial.

As for the cemetery, we're told it will be on total lockdown -- with security patrolling from the ground and from the air. At least one police chopper will be keeping an eye from the sky.

And just to prove the cops mean business, Sergeant Tom Lorenz is warning uninvited fans, "Don't even try and come, because you won't even be able to see the green of the Forest Lawn."

All I have to say is stay out of MJs pages they are meant for people who care not for ignorants like you. If you have nothing nice to say dont say anything at all, Geez, where's the respect. Happy Birthday Micheal wish you were here :( you will forever be missed.

This is a gossip site, not an MJ fan site. Anybody reading the article has a right to post their opinion, whether you or any of the other fanatics on here like it or not. MJ was a legend, but he had his faults just like everyone else.
Ann, brush up on your spelling and grammar instead of spending all your time on here; your ignorance is showing.

534. 245. 229. Della, Lucy - why the private conversations here? Can't you e-mail each other?

I agree....nothing personal, but wouldn't you all rather have a private conversation? This is a message board.

Dear Della, Lucy, et. al.
Did any of you actually know Michael Jackson? I didn't think so. Perhaps all of you so-called fans on here should invest your fanaticism elsewhere. There are many issues in the US that need 24/7 attention, like homelessness, hunger, health care, things that really matter. Consider it, won't you?

From what I've read there are Mausoleums at that cemetery that aren't open to the public anyway. If they had just placed his body in one of those crypts in a private mausoleum some time between his funeral and now then no one would be the wiser and they wouldn't have had to pay all those cops to keep people away from his burial. A couple of family members could have been in attendance and the others could have visited in intervals later.

For those who are upset about a private funeral and no access to the grave.... let the Jacksons know you won't be buying tickets to his concert movie or memorial concerts either. We all made MJ the star he was and and he belongs to us as well as his family.

Maybe    

Forest Lawn Glendale Administration Building has a SWASTIKA symbol in the bricks.
Outrageous that Jackson family is going to bury Michael there for all the obvious reasons.
Someone should reconsider.
