Phila. Police Union Calls For Boycott Of Quentin Tarantino Films

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The President representing the thousands of members of the Philadelphia Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5 announced that the Board of Directors voted unanimously to boycott all works by film director Quentin Tarantino.

President John McNesby said in a press release, “Tarantino has shown through his actions that he is anti-police. Mr. Tarantino has made a good living through his films, projecting into society at large violence and respect for criminals; he it turns out also hates cops.”

McNesby said, “Tarantino made his statements in NYC before P/O Randolph Holder, NYPD, who was killed in the line of duty, was laid to rest. Lodge 5 would like to note that the NYC Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, President Pat Lynch has also called for a boycott of Quentin Tarantino films.”

President of the PBA, Patrick J. Lynch adds, “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. 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.”
