    They act as if formally charged = guilty/convicted.

    Example #34,890,005 that we really don't believe in "innocent until proven guilty" in our society, regardless all the noble-sounding rhetoric.

    Yes, I know this is not a court of law, but the mindset is still indicative.

    No, it's indicative of a company that doesn't want to be involved with criminal proceedings. Imagine the bad PR that would result from them funding, say, the defense of a child molester. That would hurt the bottom line.

    I guess they figure if there is enough evidence to even merit being prosecuted that is enough that Gofundme doesn't want to touch it. They are a business and in the end they are going to do what they think is best for their bottom line.

    This is what the TOS says as far as unacceptable fundraisers

    Gofundme's TOS: pages that campaign in defense of formal charges or claims of heinous crimes, violent, hateful, sexual or discriminatory acts.

    Looks like it was pulled for violating their TOS.

    It also looks like they pulled the page for the Baltimore "protesters" which demonstrates at least some consistency
