Missouri Man Arrested For Pretending To Shoot Cop With His Finger

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.
