Phoenix police join growing backlash against actor, director Tarantino

-
Phoenix police are joining the growing backlash against Quentin Tarantino.
 
This after the Oscar-winning director made controversial comments during a protest against police misconduct.
 
“I am a human being with a conscience and when I see murder I cannot stand by; and I have to call the murdered the murdered, I have to call the murderers, the murderers,” Tarantino said. 
 
Tarantino was speaking at a rally in New York City last week when he referred to cops as murderers.
 
He made the comments just days after an NYPD officer was killed in the line of duty.
 
The Phoenix Law Enforcement Association joined police departments all around the country in calling for a boycott of Tarantino's films.
 
"You've got this guy marching in the crowd, who, ironically, his trademark is movies that are extremely violent, graphic, depict gory murders,” said Officer Ken Crane, the president of the Phoenix Law Enforcement Association. “That's how they guy makes his money, and then he wants to go out can call cops murderers, it's unacceptable."
 
The Association calls his comments 'A slap in the face to all men and women who put their lives on the line...every day.'
