They claim to be protesting the deaths of innocent lives.

Yet in the process, lives are lost.

Last night, a Las Vegas police officer was shot in the head by rioters.

His crime?

Doing his job.

His mere presence at a riot meant that he deserved to be shot in the head by a radical lunatic.

The Daily Caller provides the following details on the matter:

At least four police officers in St. Louis, Missouri, were shot and another was killed in Las Vegas on Monday night, according to multiple reports.

The shootings come amid days of protests and violent riots in dozens of cities as law enforcement struggles to enforce curfews and prevent looting. Early reports say a U.S. Marshall was killed in Las Vegas after being shot in the head outside a federal courthouse and police have reportedly confirmed he is still on life support. Four St. Louis officers were also shot, according to multiple local reports, but all remain conscious and are expected to recover.

The shooting in St. Louis came during a prolonged shootout between police and an unknown number of rioters early Monday morning. Numerous videos on social media show civilians panicking in their vehicles as dozens of shots ring out.

In New York City, footage shows rioters appearing to gang up on a lone officer in the street. Hours later in Buffalo, New York, a rioter in an SUV reportedly plowed through a group of police and National Guard members.

Naturally, there was a firestorm on Twitter over the shooting of the officer:
