    Default Quentin Tarantino's dad says son 'dead wrong' calling police 'murderers'

    October 30, 2015


    Quentin Tarantino's dad says his son was "dead wrong" when he criticized police officers at a New York City rally last Saturday.

    “I love my son and have great respect for him as an artist but he is dead wrong in calling police officers, particularly in New York City where I grew up, murderers,” Tony Tarantino said in a statement released on Friday by the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association Of the City of New York. “He is a passionate man and that comes out in his art but sometimes he lets his passion blind him to the facts and to reality. I believe that is what happened when he joined in those anti-cop protests."

    Quentin Tarantino was speaking at a rally protesting police brutality when he said: "This is not being dealt with in any way at all. That's why we are out here. If it was being dealt with, then these murdering cops would be in jail or at least be facing charges."

    "When I see murders, I do not stand by," Tarantino added. "I have to call a murder a murder, and I have to call the murderers the murderers."

    Tarantino made his comments just days after a New York City police officer was killed in the line if duty.

    PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said he appreciated Tony Tarantino's comments.


    “We are very grateful to Tony Tarantino for having the courage to speak out and support the police. It is not easy criticizing someone you care about. But his son, Quentin Tarantino, has insulted the very people who protect his freedom of speech and who facilitate the making of his films," Lynch said. "He owes an apology to law enforcement officers across country and we will continue to encourage the boycotting of his films until he makes such an apology. The list of police agencies across the country who will boycott Quentin Tarantino’s films is long and growing.”

    So far unions representing police in Los Angeles and Philadelphia have joined the PBA in urging a boycott of Quentin Tarantino's films.

    “I wish he would take a hard, dispassionate look at the facts before jumping to conclusions and making these kinds of hurtful mistakes that dishonor an honorable profession," Tony Tarantino said. "We have many friends and relatives who have served honorably in the NYPD and the LAPD and clearly, they risk their lives to keep the rest of us safe. Cops are not murderers, they are heroes.”

    Tony Tarantino said local police officers and his involvement in the Police Athletic League helped him in his childhood. In a 2010 interview, Quentin Tarantino said he and his father do not share any sort of relationship, and that he had never even met him.

    Quentin Tarantino has a new movie, "The Hateful 8," premiering in December. Repeated requests for comment from Quentin Tarantino, and the Weinstein Co., which is producing the movie, have not been returned.

    Yet another example of people taking extreme positions on a serious issue. Are all cops murders? No. Have and do some unnecessarily and/or illegally rough people up? Yes. Do most cops do their jobs correctly? Yes. Do some do it wrongly? Yes. Have some people targeted cops in violent acts? Yes. Have some cops committed illegal, violent acts against citizens? Yes.

    So instead of calling cops murderers and instead of protecting cops that do wrong, I wish we could just admit that there is a problem. It's not just anecdotal. We have footage of cops doing bad things.

    Stupidly, by taking an extreme position, people hung their hat on the Michael Brown rack when, it turns out, he put himself in that situation and the shooting was justified. Is it sad? Hell yes. Who knows what was going on with him. He seemed like a bully at least, based upon that liquor store footage, and a terror at worst, based upon the evidence in his encounter with the police officer. By jumping the gun and not admitting they were wrong, you actually hurt your case by continuing to pretend Michael Brown is part of this problem.

    Walter Scott? That was murder--a murder the cop tried to cover up. And it's something we need to address in this country. There is a cycle of poverty that is devastating for some. Mike is right--a lot of this is caused by having kids and not staying home with them, and that was the 'original sin' committed by Scott. But we don't know ever situation. Either way, yes, he ran, but running isn't a death sentence, where the officer is judge, jury, and executioner, shoots you in the back, kills you, and then makes up a story.

    Most cops do the job right. There is an overarching problem of concentrating too much in poor areas where there is less blowback on the department and the city. If we're going to bust people for drugs, we should patrol areas equally when it is equally likely people are possessing. We shouldn't concentrate just on the poor areas. Those areas are disproportionately minorities, and that is where the race factor comes in.

    All that said, anyone who listened to the Serial Podcast and the follow up, Undisclosed: the State vs. Adnan Sayed, and who pays attention to big, thorough, investigative reporting, knows that in some departments, and in some cases most, there is a real problem in how crimes are investigated and how prosecutors try them. So there are ARE real issues with police, either from an overarching, procedural level or at the individual level of SOME cops. Ignoring that is a problem.

    So is just getting up and calling cops murderers.

    I wouldn't go so far as to say all cops are murderers, but I will say that there is a culture of racism, bullying, and brutality within the institution.

    Default 1,000 POLICE ORGANIZATIONS JOIN ‘HATEFUL EIGHT’ BOYCOTT

    The chickens have come home to roost for director Quentin Tarantino, a thousand of them in fact, as the National Association of Police Organizations announces that it, and the 1,000 police units and associations it represents, will join the boycott against “The Hateful Eight.”

    Add to that number nearly a quarter of a million law enforcement officers represented by this group.

    In a cynical attempt to boost his standing with the left-wing black media, the sheltered, out-of-touch Tarantino joined a Black Lives Matter-affiliated anti-cop hate rally and called police officers “murderers.”

    Harvey Weinstein, producer of “The Hateful Eight,” is reportedly “furious” at Tarantino and “desperate” to see the director apologize for his objectively appalling comments. Weinstein has somewhere around $80 million invested in the three-hour Western, and after a lousy year, desperately needs a box office hit and an Oscar contender.

    You can’t succeed in Hollywood at the level Tarantino has without being smart. His problem is that he’s bubble-dumb, so shielded and removed from real life that he thought spewing anti-police hate at a hate rally was good public relations.

    Mr. Tarantino needs to turn off CNN, grow a beard, and move to Wyoming for a year.

    Provincialism does not become him personally, nor does it become his art

    Where did he say ALL cops were murderers? He was speaking at a POLICE BRUTALITY protest and he said, and Im paraphrasing, these "murdering cops have to be charged".

    Well yeah they should....

    Where did he say all cops are murderers?

    I love how the Non-PC crowd loves to jump when people are too PC yet when it doesnt fit their agenda, they cry like little bitches. Grow up. Theres a lot of great men in uniform and there are a lot of pieces of shit who dont even deserve to wear a police uniform as a Halloween costume. Period.

    Good publicity travels fast. Bad publicity travels faster. Good cops do their job and people applaud them. Bad cops hurt/kill innocent people and people lose their minds.

    That is not a bad thing, imo.

    I think the fact that he was marching with Black Lives Matter didn't help. They don't distinguish at all..

    Default Quentin Tarantino Expected to Apologize for Police Brutality Comments (Exclusive)

    Director is planning to break his silence after the controversial remarks, but Jamie Foxx tells Tarantino to “keep telling the truth”

    After a week of silence and rising police outrage, Quentin Tarantino has let colleagues know he intends to apologize for his comments calling police officers “murderers,” TheWrap has learned.

    The “Django Unchained” director has been under siege by police departments across the nation after he made the controversial comments at a rally in Manhattan against police brutality on Saturday, Oct. 24.

    “When I see murders, I do not stand by… I have to call a murder a murder and I have to call the murderers the murderers,” the director told a crowd of about 300 a week ago.

    One police union after another has boycotted Tarantino, and by Friday protests reached a crescendo with the National Association of Police Organizations — a group representing 1,000 police units and associations and over 241,000 sworn law enforcement officers — calling for a total boycott of his films, including the upcoming “Hateful Eight.”

    On Sunday, Jamie Foxx threw his support behind the director at The Hollywood Film Awards,where he introduced the cast of “The Hateful Eight,” which will be out in December.

    “Keep telling the truth and don’t worry about none of the haters,” Foxx said at the Beverly Hilton. Tarantino was not present at the awards show.

    But an individual with knowledge of the situation said the director is planning to explain his comments in an opinion piece and apologize to those who were offended. The exact time and media outlet will be decided by the director, the individual said.

    That would certainly be a welcome move to Harvey Weinstein, the co-chairman of The Weinstein Company, who is distributing Tarantino’s film and has a relationship with the director that stretches back more than two decades. Weinstein is also a prominent figure in New York City and active in city politics.

    Thus far TWC has declined to comment on the situation.

    The initial protest was held in Washington Square Park four days after NYPD Officer Randolph Holder was fatally shot in the head while chasing a gunman in East Harlem. When asked about the timing of the rally, Tarantino called it “unfortunate.”

    It didn’t take long for the law enforcement community to take the Oscar-winning writer and director to task, and call for a boycott of his future films.

    “New Yorkers need to send a message to this purveyor of degeneracy that he has no business coming to our city to peddle his slanderous ‘Cop Fiction.’ It’s time for a boycott of Quentin Tarantino‘s films,” Patrick Lynch, president of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association said in a statement the day after the protest.

    The police unions in Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and the one representing New Jersey State Police followed suit.

    And NAPO on Friday wrote: “We ask officers to stop working special assignments or off-duty jobs, such as providing security, traffic control or technical advice for any of Tarantino’s projects.”

    As the director prepares to release his Western “The Hateful Eight,” pressure has grown for him to issue an apology.

    The other half of the problem
    Is that cops and their unions don't want to admit that some of them do commit murder.

    Maybe he should move in with Joaquin Phoenix, wherever he is.

    Has been or not, he's got a point. Those who took offence when Tarantino made his original statements are idiotic and allow their blatant and blinding support for law enforcement to get in the way of seeing/hearing what was actually said.

    He marched with Black Lives Matter. That's like marching with ISIS for peace in the middle east.

    QT used trash like Michael Brown as an example, but Michael Brown got just what he deserved.

    Now, I don't agree with The Police Union threatening QT like they have done, but I believe that the cops are in the right most of the time. Naturally, the media usually only gives a shit when things go wrong, or there is some narrative for them to exploit.

    Hollywood needs to be brought to it's knee's.

    They should be worried about the fact that they can't make money outside of remakes and spamming superhero franchises now. They should be worried that they no longer have anyone out there that is actually worth watching.

    His movies do nothing but promote violence and endless debauchery and perversion (Just see the Pawn Shop scene in Pulp Fictions for an example)... Not only that, but they defend trash like Roman Polanski... Who is a know rapist.

    But now they want to ride some kind of high horse when they're all basically scumbags themselves.

    QT can go suck on some hobo's feet and shut the fuck up.

    These "people" mostly live in a bubble, but every once in a while they have to open up their mouths so they can pretend that they're "one of us". They will jump on the big story of the day so they can feel "normal". That's really what it is.
