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.”
