Gun gesture not so innocent after all

In the news today in the UK Daily Mail:

Brother of ‘hoodie’ who mocked David Cameron with a gun gesture in 2007 has been shot in the legs after a doorstep attack (link)

Now, this is a sad story about a young man who was named in the media, Ryan Florence, see my previous post here. At the time it seemed like it was a fairly childish gesture that people overreacted to. Perhaps I was wrong. It turns out both he and his brother are involved in illegal gun posession and now his brother has been shot in both of his legs…

The infamous gun gesture aimed at then prime minister David Cameron

    Gun gestures like this pointed at high ranking public official is always treated as an imminent threat to the official. I am not shocked that this guys brother has already been shot twice.
