Outrageous Fundraisers for Baltimore Cops Keep Getting Shut Down
The wife of a Baltimore police officer is trying to set up fundraisers to help the families of the six police officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray.
Sara Weigman-Camarote told Megyn Kelly that 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.
What are you going to do now? Megyn Kelly asked.
Weigman-Camarote revealed that she's teamed up with a retired Baltimore police officer who was inspired by the fundraisers being shut down.
"He changed his whole website to specifically be able to put up a campaign for any type of these causes, for cops and their families ... any person in distress who is part of the law enforcement family."
Megyn pointed out that even though they are police officers, they are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
