There has been a lot of controversy about Tarantino's comments about some people in the police force. He called some police officers who kill civilians as murderers and police unions across the east coast are starting to protest his comments and asking everyone to boycott his movie.
However, it does seem like Tarantino is wrong. I agree with him as it's not improbable that there are some messed up cops out there but we can also agree that majority of the police force are normal people trying to try their best to uphold the law. Tarantino has a right to express his opinions and his opinions were not blanket statements against the police force. The boycotts are only going to stir up awareness about his movie and that more people will end up watching the movie just to know what was going on. The unions must understand that even though Tarantino is a public figure, he has the right to state his opinions as do any ordinary citizen. The unions are probably not realizing that their boycott news will end up making the cash registers ring at the box office. In the USA Today article given below, Tarantino's dad came out and spoke against Tarantino which is the icing on the cake. If he did that, I am certain that he does not have much of a relationship with his son and doesn't understand him.
