Baltimore police union’s online fundraiser seeking $600,000 taken down after 41 minutes

Don't you worry, they will find another avenue in no time.

The union representing Baltimore police officers set up an online fundraiser on Friday on behalf of the six officers indicted in connection with Freddie Gray’s death, only to have it disappear within an hour.


As Reuters reported, one of the officers who arrested Gray earlier this month was charged with second-degree murder, while the other five face charges ranging from manslaughter to assault and misconduct in office.
That seemingly put the campaign at odds with GoFundMe’s terms of service, which bars campaigns mounted “in defense of formal charges or claims of heinous crimes, violent, hateful, sexual or discriminatory acts.”
Just 41 minutes after going online, the campaign page was not available. GoFundMe has not confirmed whether it pulled the page down, but the union said on Twitter that it was “suspended with no explanation.”


UPDATE, 7:33 p.m. EST: GoFundMe confirmed via email that it took down the union’s fundraiser for violating its terms of service regarding “formal charges or claims of heinous crimes.” 


  1. So judged and sentenced before the investigation, evidence and trial even start. Tried by media. Our founding fathers are turning over in their graves.

  2. They are going to be sacrificed to pacify the animals. The prosecutor that is handling the case is tied to the lawyer for the gray family. He was very instrumental in getting her elected to the office. Plus the fact he was the largest contributor to her campaign fund.

    There's such a rush to get "justice" that the cops rights are going to be trampled. Innocent until proven guilty doesn't apply.

  3. Any bets that trials etc will get postponed indefinitely and that the 6 will be 'allowed' to plead guilty to some lesser charges in exchange for their 'voluntary' resignation...................
    And as to 'incestuous' issues regarding the goings on in the inner circles of what passes for bodymore politics, that's been going on since princess nan's daddy was the mayor.


Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one, some peoples stink more than others too. Remember, I can make your opinion disappear, you keep the stink.
