For Jim Pasco, the executive director of the Fraternal Order of Police, the line between the movies and real life has been blurred. In what seemed like a line from a cheesy action flick, Pasco threatened Quentin Tarantino, because the filmmaker previously (correctly) described cops who needlessly kill people as “murderers.”
“Something is in the works, but the element of surprise is the most important element,” Pasco told THR. “Something could happen anytime between now and [the premiere of Tarantino’s new film]. And a lot of it is going to be driven by Tarantino, who is nothing if not predictable.”
“The right time and place will come up and we’ll try to hurt him in the only way that seems to matter to him, and that’s economically,” continued Pasco.
First of all, did Pasco take drama courses in high school or college, because hey — not bad! That’s some good supervillain stuff right there. We’ve got $100 that says he was wearing an eye-patch and a black cape during this interview.
Secondly, and unfortunately for Pasco, this is not a movie. This is real life, and the head of a police union should not be issuing threats of any kind. This is the kind of thing that leads people to become scared of the police. Well, this and cops murdering people.
