I think Kos and Shields caught a lot of crap for fewer eye-poke incidents. Whether it's accurate or not, I'd say Jones is being treated equitably given the context.
That said, I do think it's dirty as all hell. Rogan made the very good point that having your fingers out like that prevents people from running in out of fear of an eye poke. IMO, threat of a jab is fair, threat of an eye poke is questionable at best.
