The executive director of the Fraternal Order of Police has upped the ante in the ongoing feud with filmmaker Quentin Tarantino, who recently said some deaths in police custody were murders.
"Tarantino has made a good living out of violence and surprise," Jim Pasco told The Hollywood Reporter. "Our offices make a living trying to stop violence, but surprise is not out of the question."
The FOP, based in Washington, D.C., consists of more than 330,000 full-time, sworn officers. According to Pasco, the surprise in question is already "in the works," and will be in addition to the standing boycott of Tarantino's films, including his upcoming movie "The Hateful Eight."
"Something is in the works, but the element of surprise is the most important element," says Pasco. "Something could happen anytime between now and [the premiere]. And a lot of it is going to be driven by Tarantino, who is nothing if not predictable.
Odd to see Tarantino's point about the police reinforced, by the police, in such hamfisted fashion. There's even a preemptive invocation of the abuser's creed: "you made us do it."
That the police are out of control and care little for the consent of the policed seems obvious. That they're so perfectly nasty and obvious about it is becoming a sick joke.
