Wait, It Wasn’t the Middle Finger?
In an op ed piece in the Providence Journal, a woman lobbied for the state legislature to pass a law making it illegal to use one’s fingers to pretend to point a gun at someone. It seems she “inadvertently” cut off another driver and that driver pointed his fingers at her as if they were a gun. She then got out of her car at the next traffic light and confronted that driver.
We’ve come to a place where everyone’s slightest grievance, delay, challenged opinion, unhappiness, and/or perceived offense has to be recognized and acknowledged by every other single human alive, and laws must be made to protect that person’s perfect well-being.
What would then be the punishment for using one’s fingers to display only the middle one in anger? Life in jail? The death penalty?
