A funding page for the six officers set up by The Fraternal Order of Police, a union representing Baltimore City police officers, is removed by the site. The page set a fundraising goal of $600,000 to pay for the living expenses of the six officers, who have been placed on unpaid suspension after they were charged in Gray’s death. In 41 minutes, the page raised $1,135. The FOP posts on its Facebook page:

Apparently our GoFundMe account has been suspended with no explanation. We are working to find a new site for donations. Thank you!
