It's crazy. People just don't get it. All the umpires have to do is enforce the rule as it is.

Running over the catcher--unless he's parked in front of the plate--should by the rules be handled the same way that this play was

They called him out because he intentionally interfered with the ball. Had he not swiped at it, he would've been safe. I don't necessarily like the idea of removing it from the sport, but i do think something needs to be done about the guys who go in with the sole intention of running over the catcher.
