Even if he was make a gun with his fingers at the cop is it even against the law.
I am accomplishing something, I am refusing to bow down to the govt and another one of their unjust laws.

I have refused to put my seat belt on at roadside checkpoints multiple times. They did not arrest me. I used to wear seat belts religiously before they passed a law requiring me to do so, now I don't wear them.
Why would you put your own life at risk? You're not even accomplishing anything, just driving around, more likely to die.
I hope you reconsider and start wearing your seatbelt again. You can't protest anymore if you're dead.
7% higher deaths IN accidents w/ helmets (broken necks while impact saves only help from 8-13 mph to the back of the head, face-impacts become deadly too (extra weight)).
Indeed, those detectives are damned lucky he didn't kill 'em.

Perhaps that man that got arrested was assumed to be threatening the officers with chi energy beams like the ones Vegeta on Dragonball Z shoots out of his fingers.

I don't know where you've got these stats, but every stat I've seen or read, show death rates have risen on motorcyclists who don't wear a helmet. At least in my state it has shown the increase in deaths since the helmet law was abolished.
Having said that, people should have the personal freedom to choose between wearing a helmet or not and buckling or not. If people choose to risk their lives in their own personal property, than it's not the governments place to enforce their desire on the people. I'm not debating the fact that seat belts and helmets have saved lives, my point is, the government continues to involve themselves in our personal lives.
