Quentin Tarantino Stands by Police Comments, Responds to Boycott.

Congress shall make no law allowing police officers to reply to a celebrity who has accused them of murder; nor is there a sign out in front of the celebrity’s house that says “Dead N***** Storage.” Of course, this simple historical fact won’t prevent cops, right-wingers, and other fascists from attempting to poison and destroy our brother, Quentin Tarantino.This screengrab shows filmmaker Quentin Tarantino’s appearance on the MSNBC show All In with Chris Hayes on Wednesday, when he discussed his criticism of police brutality and the boycott against him and his films by several American police unions and police groups. (MSNBC) The Academy Award-winning filmmaker appeared on MSNBC’s All in With Chris Hayes on Wednesday to continue to defend himself from a backlash by police groups that have called for a boycott of his upcoming movie, The Hateful Eight.Quentin Tarantino is sticking to his recent comments about alleged police brutality, even as he faces public criticism and boycott threats from police groups and lawmakers. Asked by Chris Hayes if he was surprised by the “vitriol” of police reaction to his speech at a recent rally in New York at which he called police “murderers,” Quentin whined: “I was under the impression I was an American and that I had First Amendment rights.” BOOM.

Tarantino, who also responded in an interview Tuesday with The Los Angeles Times, has been condemned by New York police Commissioner William Bratton and numerous police groups, including the National Association of Police Organizations. Pat Lynch, the president of the New York Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, responded by calling Tarantino a “cop-hater” and accusing the “Pulp Fiction” director of glorifying violence and crime in his movies.

Ted Poe, a Republican congressman from Texas, condemned Tarantino’s statement in a speech on the House floor, saying the comments encourage crime against police officers. Tarantino, who is no stranger to controversy over his public remarks or his often-violent films, dismissed the response to his remarks as distractions from what he feels are the real issues at stake. “Anybody who acknowledges that there’s a problem in law enforcement in this country right now is considered by law enforcement to be part of the problem,” he told Hayes. “They would rather start arguments with celebrities than examine the concerns put before them by a citizenry that lost trust in them.” The director said Wednesday that he believes the 2014 shooting death of Cleveland boy Tamir Rice and New York resident Eric Garner’s 2014 death in police custody to be murder.

As for whether the threats of boycott are rattling the distributor of The Hateful Eight, the Weinstein Co., Tarantino said it’s probably “a pain in the butt” for the company but concluded, “they stand behind me.” Tarantino also is the director of movies including Kill Bill and Reservoir Dogs. Investigators said earlier this year that the officer who shot Rice used reasonable force, while a grand jury in late 2014 declined to indict the police officer who grabbed Garner by the neck, although the city agreed to pay a $5.9 million settlement to the man’s family.
