It's unfortunate that the cop wasn't informed that it may have been a fake, but with the information he had, he did the right thing. It's almost impossible to tell the difference from 20+ feet away.
In the end it's really unfortunate.
If you consciously choose to carry a gun out in public like that, and not listen to the LEO's commands you'd better be ready for the consequences. No excuse for utter stupidity like that.
