How Does the Union Decide Who to Defend?

Chicago police union faces suit over Burge defense -- I have no idea whether there is merit here or not, but it is interesting that the Chicago police union doesn't defend everyone in the union.
Raysurnet Morris and William Whitaker, who both are African-American, say the union refused to pay their legal fees, while at the same time funding Burge's defense. Burge is white.
So how do they select who to support and who to toss to the wolves?
