Police Union Calls for Boycott of Quentin Tarantino After Cop Brutality Protest.

Oscar-winning film-maker Quentin Tarantino joined hundreds of demonstrators waving signs, shouting through megaphones and marching along New York City’s streets to protest against police brutality on Saturday. Quentin Tarantino fired up an anti-cop rally in New York when he called police “murderers,” and now the local police union is calling for a boycott of all his films. “When I see murders, I do not stand by,” Tarantino told the crowd in Washington Square Park Saturday. “I have to call a murder a murder and I have to call the murderers the murderers.” “I’m a human being with a conscience.”It’s no surprise that someone who makes a living glorifying crime and violence is a cop-hater, too,” Patrick Lynch of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association said in a statement Sunday. The protest came at a time of heightened awareness across America of the often-contentious relationship between police officers and the people they serve. I’m here to say I’m on the side of the murdered.” “This is not being dealt with in anyway at all,” he added. “That’s why we are out here.

As they moved, those with megaphones shouted stories as others waved signs with photos of the dead, mostly young black men, and the dates and places of the incidents.
