National Police Union Calls for Total Tarantino Boycott


Latest escalation puts director's "The Hateful Eight" and any future movies in crosshairs of cops nationwide

The police boycott of Quentin Tarantino's "The Hateful Eight" has received the endorsement of the National Association of Police Organizations — a group representing 1,000 police units and associations and over 241,000 sworn law enforcement officers.

Not only does the organization support the protesting unions — which has spread to including cops in New York City, Los Angeles, Houston, New Jersey, Chicago and Philadelphia — it is discouraging police officers from engaging in promotional efforts and any future productions that routinely need the assistance of law enforcement, even for off-duty work.

"We ask officers to stop working special assignments or off-duty jobs, such as providing security, traffic control or technical advice for any of Tarantino's projects," a statement on NAPO's website said.
