Man arrested for pointing his finger at cops

Unfortunately, you read that headline right. A man was arrested for pointing his finger at police in a roughly gun-like fashion. Even more unfortunate is the fact that I do not find this all that surprising, given that we live in a nation where people can be arrested for failing to complete siding on their house.
Although, I don’t even think children think that sticking out your index finger to mimic a gun’s shape looks even remotely like an actual gun.
If that were the case, children wouldn’t want to play with toy guns, they’d just run around with their hyper-realistic fingers.
Obviously that is not the case, but apparently these police officers were imbecilic enough to actually think a human hand looked like a gun.
In reality, I seriously doubt that they believed it looked like a gun, instead they are just using it as an excuse to harass the individual.
These days police seem to target anyone who doesn’t either cower in fear or otherwise worship them, which was obviously the case with this individual.
These police claim that they felt so threatened by the man that they were justified in arresting him and charging him with assault.
If you’re in law enforcement and you’re actually threatened by someone who is doing nothing more than point at you, I really don’t think you should be in such a field. You might be better off working with children, although even then, police seem to think it is legitimate to use force.
