This idiomatic phrase indicates that when a friendly gesture goes too far, then it is not a friendly gesture. In other words, sometimes what appears to be a friendly gesture....isn't.
Ridiculous ansewer , when a hand shake from hand to elbow, it means that law enforcement is a brother hood nothing can break it and i stand behind you.
