I have to call a murder a murder and I have to call the murderers the murderers," Tarantino told a crowd of police brutality protestors at the rally. He continued, "I'm a human being with a conscience. And if you believe there's murder going on then you need to rise up and stand up against it. I'm here to say I'm on the side of the murdered." Patrick Lynch, the president of the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association, called Quentin Tarantino a "purveyor of degeneracy" who "has no business coming to our city to peddle his slanderous 'Cop Fiction'." "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, adding, "It’s time for a boycott of Quentin Tarantino’s films."
