Commenters on the post said they were shocked and particularly saddened that violence would be aimed at first responders.
One suggested that whoever started the fire at 12655 First Street probably was throwing the rocks.
“Please don’t think that all residents of Greenwood are like this,” wrote Fonda Swartzentruber. “We are actually good people.”
