No sympathy here.

@AntonioFrench @ksdknews, maybe #Ferguson police wouldn’t get shot at if they stooped pointing their guns and shooting other ppl.

A drive-by shooting? No big deal, according to activist Shaun King.

Now, after ALL OF THE DRAMA, this officer wasn't even shot but injured by glass. See how they run with the worst story first, then retract?

@ShaunKing We should be talking about what kind of thug that cop was. What did he do to deserve flying glass hit him.

@mrmilianspeaks @ShaunKing Shouldn't have been out joy riding at that hour.

@AntonioFrench @Lussenpop Soooo, if the bullet doesn't enter his skull and he is only injured by the glass, that's ok? Gotcha
