Target: Quentin Tarantino
Goal: Defend Quentin Tarantino for protesting and speaking out against the police brutality that has claimed dozens of lives this year alone.
Famous director Quentin Tarantino recently attended an anti-police brutality protest in New York and spoke out against the recent wrongs that have been committed by police against unarmed civilians. Now, police unions in New York City, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and New Jersey are calling for a boycott of Tarantino’s films and say the director is a “cop hater.”
At the protest, Tarantino said, “I am here because I am a human being with a conscience. And when I see murder, I cannot stand by and I have to call the murdered the murdered and the murderers the murderers.”
Police took this as Tarantino calling all police murderers, when nowhere in his statement was that said. There has been a new case practically every week where a police officer in the U.S. shoots and kills unarmed civilians. Even when those cases are caught on video and the civilian is shown to have done nothing wrong, or when a police officer is caught in a lie about what happened, these officers often walk free despite the fact that they did in fact murder someone.
Quentin Tarantino’s words are being twisted and police unions are now taking a mafia-like approach in an attempt to tear him down. Defend Tarantino for protesting and speaking out against wrongful police brutality.
Dear Mr. Tarantino,
As a famous director, your words hold a lot of weight. That’s why it’s such a positive thing that you recently attended a protest against police brutality and spoke out against the injustices that are happening to unarmed civilians killed by police across the country, especially black civilians.
This fight is a long road that needs as much support as it can get. That’s why police unions feel so threatened when a person of power such as yourself helps bring a voice to those who are often left out of the conversation. I support your words, and you should be defended against these wrongful attacks where unions are putting words in your mouth.
