About sixty retired police officers in The Villages turned out at their Rialto Theater this morning to protest the opening of Quentin Tarantino’s new film. You may remember Tarantino infuriated cops with his statements at a Black Lives Matter rally in New York City last October.
Said the film director, “When I see murders, I do not stand by. I have to call a murder a murder, and I have to call the murderers the murderers.” The NYPD Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association urged people to boycott Tarantino movies. I do not stand by. Well, thanks Q for being there and putting your life on the line for all of us.
Protesting retirees in The Villages held signs that said Support Your Local Police and Blue Lives Matter. It is nice to see the old timers getting out and exercising the First Amendment rights they lacked when on the job. Thank you, guys!
