Baltimore Police Union Epically Fails to Fundraise 600k

This goes to show that not every officer involved in a violent death of a black youth can have $500,000 fundraised like Darren Wilson had.

Baltimore Police Union Tried To Start Online $600,000

The Baltimore Police Union attempted to fund $600,000 in support of the six officers involved in Freddie Gray’s death. 

But their efforts were ceased to a halt 40 minutes and $425 later. 

A for effort, Baltimore Police Union. GoFundMe has yet to release a statement. But upon inspecting the Terms of Service, there are a few possible violations: 

  • Campaigns in defense of formal charges or claims of heinous crimes, violent, hateful, sexual or discriminatory acts
  • Materials including bigotry, racism, sexism, or profanity


Needless to say, the union's Twitter page has been a firm supporter of the accused police officers as well as the police force. In an open letter to Marilyn Mosby, the union asserted that the six accused officers:


". . .at all times, each of the officers diligently balanced their obligations to protect Mr. Gray and discharge their duties to protect the public."

An invalid URL has never looked so satisfying.
