Dream Defenders protest costs the state hundeds of thousands of dollars
FLORIDA -- The month-long, around-the-clock Dream Defenders protest outside the governor's capitol office ran up a hefty tab.
505,000 dollars to be exact.
That's according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
The total includes regular pay plus overtime.
The police worked shifts from July 16th to August 15th as members of the group called for lawmakers to address the "Stand your Ground" self-defense law.
