Attacked? Don't Call A Cop, Call Quentin Tarantino
Director Quentin Tarantino joined demonstrators in a a march against police brutality in New York, four days after a black NYPD officer was fatally shot. If I was a cop, I wouldn't respond to any call for help for fear of being shot or losing my job.
NYPD officer Randolph Holder was shot in the head while chasing an armed suspect. Holder was shot to death in the city's East Harlem neighborhood while pursuing a bicycle thief. A suspect has been charged with murder and robbery in the case.
The head of the New York Police Department's union has called for a boycott of Quentin Tarantino's films after the director took part in an anti-police protest Saturday, four days after one of New York's Finest was murdered by a suspect he was pursuing.
Patrick Lynch, president of the Patrolman's Benevolent Association, said Sunday in response to Tarantino, "It’s no surprise that someone who makes a living glorifying crime and violence is a cop-hater, too. The police officers that Quentin Tarantino calls ‘murderers’ aren’t living in one of his depraved big-screen fantasies — they’re risking and sometimes sacrificing their lives to protect communities from real crime and mayhem."
Tarantino, films includes the notoriously violent films "Reservoir Dogs", "Pulp Fiction", and "Django Unchained".
