FOP Calls on Members to Boycott Tarantino
Chuck Canterbury, National President of the Fraternal Order of Police, called on the organization’s members to boycott Mr. Quentin Tarantino’s film, The Hateful Eight, which is scheduled to be released later this year. In addition, the FOP is advising its members not to accept assignments or perform off-duty work, such as providing security, traffic control or technical assistance to any project involving Mr. Tarantino.
“For a man who has built his career on glorifying criminal violence, we take great offense to his recent comments calling law enforcement officers ‘murderers’ just days after an actual murder of a New York City Police Officer,” Canterbury said.
The FOP has urged its 2300 lodges and 330,000 members to boycott Mr. Tarantino’s latest project in reaction to his inflammatory remarks describing law enforcement officers as “murderers” while attending an anti-police rally. Canterbury sent a letter to the Weinstein Company informing them of the reasons the FOP would be boycotting the film.
“If Mr. Tarantino truly wished to be on “the side of the murdered,” he would speak in defense of Officer Holder and the 37 other law enforcement officers who were killed in the line of duty in 2015. Thirty-eight dead police officers may not be much of a body count for a Tarantino film, but to the brave men and women of the Fraternal Order of Police, it is far too many,” Canterbury said.
The Fraternal Order of Police is the largest law enforcement labor organization in the United States, with more than 330,000 members.
