• Tarantino Leads Anti-Police Rally In NYC: Cops Are The Problem

    Thousands of demonstrators packed the streets of New York City on Saturday during the “Rise Up October” march to protest what they call “police terror.”

    Protestors held signs reading “Rise Up! Stop Police Terror!” and “Murder with a badge is still murder.”

    They also held banners with pictures of victims of police-involved shootings.

    The rally took place four days after the on-duty murder of NYPD officer Randolph Holder who was shot in the head while chasing an armed suspect in East Harlem.

    Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino fired up the crowd by complaining that cops are too often “murderers.”

    “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,” Tarantino griped to the raucous crowd as he held a blown-up photograph of Justin Smith, an Oklahoma man killed in police custody in 1999 after spitting on cops.

    Civil rights activist Cornel West was also among those in the crowd.

    “We’re here because we have a deep love for those who have been abused by the police. Don’t get it twisted — this is a love train!” West reportedly said during his address at the rally.

    The New York police union is calling for a boycott of Quentin Tarantino’s films following the director’s involvement in the anti-cop rally.

    Patrick Lynch of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association had some choice words for the “Pulp Fiction” director.

    “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,” Lynch said in a statement Sunday. “It’s time for a boycott of Quentin Tarantino’s films.”
