After Quentin Tarantino called the ongoing police boycott of his films a "distraction" from the issue of police brutality, the head of America's largest police union fired back by noting that Tarantino had a pretty nice movie there, and it would be a shame if anything happened to it. In an interview with THR, the Fraternal Order of Police's Jim Pasco promised that his union had a "surprise" in store for the director: "Something is in the works, but the element of surprise is the most important element ... 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." Perhaps realizing that he was starting to sound like a supervillain, Pasco also clarified that the surprise would not involve physical violence. "Police officers protect people," he said. "They don't go out to hurt people."
