After police across the country had announced their plans to boycott his films, Tarantino refused to be bullied and remained steadfast in his decision to call the police who murdered people "murderers. "
Tarantino was not calling all cops murderers, nor was he purporting that he "hates cops." However, these facts are not important to those throwing bricks from the other side of the blue wall.
In fact, during a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, Tarantino responded, "All cops are not murderers. I never said that. I never even implied that."
What Tarantino said was this,
"I got something to say, but actually I would like to give my time to the families that want to talk. I want to give my time to the families. However, I just do also want to say: What am I doing here? I'm here because 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, and I have to call the murderers the murderers. Now, I'm going to give my time to the families."
