After two police officers were shot during Wednesday night’s protests outside the Ferguson Police Department, many reactions on social media seemed to range from sadness to outrage:

But others responded quite differently:
I used to think it was terrible when a cop got shot, now when I hear two have been shot in #Ferguson all I can think is "serves them right".

#ferguson: Cop Shot- covered by literally all local news nationwide in the morning as tragedy. Black Man shot- source of occasional debate.

Given Fed report, Im surprised it took so long for someone to shoot a Ferguson cop. They act like mafia. Mafia members occasionally get shot

#morningjoe As currupt as Ferguson police court and whole system I wouldn't be surprised if it was a Ferguson cop who shot cop.

People die everyday. I'm not wasting my time on police officers from Ferguson where almost every cop is racist, even black ones.

Dummies blaming Holder for the shooting but not the horrendous actions of the #FergusonPolice . Stupidity is not a good look
