GoFundMe has removed a fundraiser meant to pay the five million dollar bail set for the Waukesha killer Darrell Brooks. The site has specific rules on who you can fundraise for. They try to bounce anyone who is fundraising for criminals and they certainly did not want their site to be used to release a career criminal who injured 62 people, six of whom have died.
Here is the plea for donations:
“On November 21st, 2021 our dear friend [redacted] was arrested for allegedly driving his car into a parade, as someone who knows [redacted] personally I can tell you that he would NEVER do such a thing and I know he is innocent of what he was charged with,” read the fundraiser before it was removed. “Clearly there is more to the story the media is not telling us and I am seeking to raise the bail so [redacted] can be released and speak his truth to his side of the story in this tragic situation that sees another black man behind bars in a purely political and racist trial.”
“There is no excuse for this continued treatment of black Americans by prosecutors around the country, everyone must be presumed innocent until proven guilty and we ask that he be treated equally as anyone else in this country would be treated and he should be released until found guilty,” the fundraiser continued before listing hashtags like “#BLM” and “#NoJusticeNoPeace.”
A GoFundMe spokesperson told Fox Business that the fundraiser was taken down because it violated their terms of service:
“Fundraisers with misuse are very rare, and we take all complaints very seriously. Our team works with law enforcement to report issues and assists them in any investigations they deem necessary.”
The spokesman added that the person who started the fundraiser is now banned from the site. Their statement in raising funds was ludicrous. Insisting that he was innocent and would never do such a thing even though he had intentionally run over his baby’s momma just a week before his rampage. Prosecuting a killer is never racist, it is the law.
