While police regularly point real guns at unarmed people, even shooting and killing them, and face no punishment, if you are not an officer, you can be arrested for pointing a finger at a cop.
Columbia, Missouri Police arrested Otis Campbell on Monday night after he allegedly threatened an officer, reported KMIZ.
Police say they were on a call on Wilkes Boulevard when Campbell walked toward an officer, raised his arms as if he was holding a gun -even though he was obviously not- and said, “pow, pow, pow.”
Campbell ran away as officers chased him. Police caught him about 3 blocks away from the alleged crime of pointing a finger at a cop.
He faces charges of fourth degree assault and resisting or interfering with an arrest, according to KMIZ.
