Fundraisers For Baltimore Cops Keep Getting Shut Down
Sara Weigman-Camarote is the wife of one of the six Baltimore Police Department officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray, and she has been attempting to set up fundraisers to help the “Baltimore 6” support their families and pay their legal costs.
Her first attempt at setting up a fundraiser on GoFundMe.com was shut down, apparently because the site doesn’t help people who are charged with serious crimes.
“That’s what they said. We made this one specifically for the families, so I don’t know how the families are being charged for this, but that’s what they told me,” Weigman-Camarote said.
She added that her next attempt on IndieGoGo.com was also a “rough battle.”
She explained that the fundraiser was put on a temporary freeze, and just a few hours ago, it was shut down with all donations being returned. More
