GoFundMe Drops Campaign For Baltimore Cops
GoFundMe says the campaign for the cops accused in the death of Freddie Gray violates its policy.
The Baltimore City Fraternal Order of Police created the page on Friday in hopes of creating a defense fund for their members involved in the case, but it was quickly taken down because according to the company, funds cannot be used for people accused of serious crimes.
“The campaign clearly stated that the money raised would be used to assist the officers with their legal fees, which is a direct violation of GoFundMe’s terms,” said GoFundMe.com spokesperson Kelsea Little…
The fundraising page was quickly filled up with negative posts about the officers …
One remarked, “this is the same site that let the Darren Wilson fundraiser rock. Keep that in mind.” And another quipped, “they haven’t been fired. Their union will provide them with any legal representation. They make $60-70k a year, they don’t need my $.
