Police union threatens ‘surprise’ for Tarantino
NEW YORK – The executive director of the largest police union in the country is threatening a “surprise” for Quentin Tarantino after the director drew its ire for comments about police brutality.
Jim Pasco of the Fraternal Order of Police told the Hollywood Reporter on Thursday that the union has something planned for Tarantino and that “the element of the surprise is the most important element.”
“The time and place will come up and we’ll try to hurt him the only way that seems to matter to him, and that’s economically,” said Pasco. He said this event could happen anytime between now and the premiere of “The Hateful Eight,” which opens Christmas Day.
Numerous police groups have said they’ll boycott the film after Tarantino attended an anti-police brutality rally in October where said he was protesting “murder” and was there to demonstrate that he’s “on the side of the murdered.”
