filmmaker Quentin Tarantino said at the October 24 #RiseUpOctober: Which Side Are You On? rally and march in New York City, calling attention to the deaths of unarmed people at the hands of the police, like Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Rekia Boyd, Freddie Gray, and Tamir Rice. “When I see murder I cannot stand by. And I have to call the murdered the murdered and I have to call the murderers the murderers.”
For saying this, Tarantino faced a blistering campaign by the Patrolman’s Benevolent Association and police unions, the New York Post and Fox News, who denounced and threatened him, but he put himself on the line, answering the question... Which Side Are You On?
