GoFundMe has a policy against offering bounties on humans? Really.

Well there were only 2 donors, last time I looked.

The officer (ex, actually) is entitled to the best defense possible.

GoFundMe isn't obligated to facilitate it, though.

Sympathy level = zero.

His union should pay for it along with any of his fellow cops who believe in his innocence. And they don't need gofundme to do it.

I think you have it right. I don't think they did it to take the moral high ground.

T&C violation. Of course. Makes sense.

I totally agree with all the reasons not to support that cop. As I said I think he's a murderer and I'm outraged that it happened yet again.

However, gofundme is a business that offers a place to fund raise. As long as the funds aren't used for illegal reasons why should gofundme care and where will it stop? If I want to raise funds for a politician that they don't like will I be stopped?

As if the people aren't embarrassing enough around here in SC we have to deal with this fool. Im glad that cop is off the street. The cops need to be trained to NOT kill instead of kill, why not shoot him in the leg if the tazer doesn't stop them, did he even use the tazer or just drop it by the body ? I hope he gets the elec chair.

The Terms of Service also kind of help put to rest any talk of "why did they allow a Darren Wilson fundraiser and not one for this cop?" In that Darren Wilson was never formally charged.

Who cares if it was specifically posted in their T&C's or not?
I don't, I support the right of any business to choose who they want to allow on their internet platform...even if the decision is personally based by the owners. Sheesh, any US member who does not agree with a private company who offers such a free service is more 'liberal' and nanny-state minded than anything the more rabid US conservatives often claim about us UK slave subjects lol.

Why would they reject it the guy is getting screwed to keep things calm. People are going to riot anyway!!

Suicide by cop is what I saw.

Why is "HANDS UP DON'T SHOOT" so hard to remember. So now all criminals will just walk away because it's OK????



He is a suspected murderer that was caught on film. If being arrested for murder is "getting screwed to keep things calm", then I guess we should let all the murderers out of prison just to be safe, right?

We see this a lot on ATS. Hitting someone's extremities is much harder than hitting center mass. Police are trained to aim for center mass for that reason. You can even do an experiment yourself. Have a willing friend run from you, and try to nail him in the leg with a paintball gun. I guarantee unless you're a sharpshooter extraordinaire, you'll need quite a few shots to hit the target. Even then, a bullet in the leg doesn't necessarily mean immobilization. Though you'll probably hobble them.

I agree completely this guy is a lazy scumbag and deserves nothing less than the full extent of punishment that the law allows, but I figured I would dispel any "Aim for the legs" talk here and now.

How the hell can you not see how wrong the cop is... really?

Apparently running away is justification for use of deadly force in some peoples' minds. In fact, anything other than immediately dropping to your knees, thrusting your mitts in the air and begging for some modicum of mercy from your potential executioner is the only reasonable to thing to do, since cops apparently go to the "Judge Dredd School of Copping and Shootan Bad Guys"

It's a private company. They have the right to refuse service.



Lol, the irony of this post is blinding.

Don't offer goods and services to the public then get to think you get to choose who isn't a member of the public.

I do, not based on race, gender, sexual orientation, or religion etc, but anyone who I see shooting someone like I did in the video then no, they are not welcome at my small internet hosting business which provides free subdomain hosting, and in my construction/maintenance 'real life' business I would refuse to plaster his wall or carry out any work on his home.
If you would offer him your business then go for your life and bask in the holier than thou position you appear to hold, but I wouldn't, and I'd happily face a day in the civil court, and/or financial penalty.
...but I wouldn't be stupid enough to say I was refusing my business because I think he's obviously a horrible killer, I'd just say I was too busy or refuse to specify a reason.
Are you one of those who respect 'the law' solely because it is the law? How about Saudi women being prohibited from driving, would you support that if you became a Saudi citizen tomorrow? Lol
