Police Boycott Tarantino's Free Speech After Remarks at Black Lives Matter Rally



Recently I've been noticing an uptick in the mention of the upcoming Quentin Tarantino film "The Hateful Eight".  Mostly because police agencies around the nation are boycotting the film itself as well as future productions by Tarantino.
This stems less from the content of the film, which has a Main Character that is a Sheriff played by Walton Goggins, than Tarantino's statement at a Black Lives Matter rally.  Said Tarantino "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".  Context of this situation comes with the realization that the public is holding both its government and local police departments accountable for real and perceived brutality and tyranny.
