    The business can make up any requirements it wants.

    That said, if they wanted to be fair, the fact of charges should not be a disqualification as it is not a sign of actual wrong doing.

    In addition.
    They allow funding for those already convicted which makes absolutely no sense in light of not allowing funding for those simply accused/charged.

    I think you'll find that those who are anti-cop are people who don't like authority and being told what to do. Which would be anti-establishment AND hard core far right conservatives or libertarians or tea partiers.

    Not that it's the subject of this OP, but why do these police officers need fundraising for their defense. I've seen the union legal counsel on television frequently talking about the number of cases he's been involved in on behalf of the union and its members and I'd be surprised if any of these officers will have any out of pocket expenses to any great extent related to the criminal charges.

    Now, if this is in anticipation of civil litigation and the potential for each or any of them to be held civilly liable for damages to Mr. Gray's family, that might be a different story, but I'd be surprised if their union didn't cover them in this regard as well, particularly if they are acquitted of any criminal charges.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
