A crowdfunding page created for Darren Wilson raised $235,010 from 5,902 people before organizers stopped accepting donations Friday after reaching their goal in four days.
I wonder whether those 'donations' can still be written off on taxes if he is found guilty. I'm sure a lot of people who donated don't truly care about guilt or innocence, and the motivation for giving in some is the "one less #%$&ег" approach. But I just wonder if the funds can be transferred to his prison account, if charged and convicted. What's somewhat comically ironic is, if the funds go to legal defense, all the givers did was save the union money. It would be the union, not Wilson, who would be paying for legal defense. I'd bet a good chunk of the givers are not fans of public employee unions. That kind of stuff tickles me
