Quentin Tarantino took to the streets to march against perceived police brutality on Saturday in New York City.
The Oscar-winning director and screenwriter, who has produced blood-soaked films like Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, feels that the issue is not taken seriously enough.

The esteemed director, who in the past has said that film is ‘fantasy’ and has no bearing on real life violence, blasted law enforcement for the killing of a 12-year-old in Cleveland, Ohio.
‘A 12-year-old black male child,’ he said, as the crowd chanted his name, Tamir Rice. ‘On November 22, 2014, Tamir was playing with a toy gun in the park.’
