Looks like that not all celebrities are self-absorbed. There are some of them fighting for what is right. One of them is Quentin Tarantino who joined protesters on the streets of New York against police brutality. This march took place on Saturday.

Quentin believes that these crimes often stay unpunished and he believes that it should stop being this way. This is what he said about the matter: “This is not being dealt with in anyway at all. That’s why we are out here. If it was being dealt with, then these murdering cops would be in jail or at least be facing charges.”

People behind the rally are Carl Dix (Revolutionary Communist Party) and Dr. Cornel West who is well known activist and a writer. The protesters gathered at Washington Square Park, after what they walked two miles along Sixth Avenue. Even though Tarantino’s movies are full of violence he always stated that films are fantasy and that he considers that they don’t have impact on real life.

‘A 12-year-old black male child. On November 22, 2014, Tamir was playing with a toy gun in the park. After a 911 call where the person calling said the gun was probably a fake and the person holding it was probably a juvenile, the police rushed on to the scene and shot Tamir within two seconds.’

‘Then they knocked down and handcuffed his sister, and locked her in the police car. They would not allow his mother to hold her lifeless child who lie dead in the street.’

‘For almost a year there’s been no charges filed and not even a grand jury selected.’

‘Friends said Tamir was a gifted artist and very creative.’

This are the parts of the speech Tarantino said when he addressed people who took part in rally. He also mentioned Antonio Guzman Lopez, Michael Brown and Freddie Gray. All this people were killed by cops who never got their punishment or got one very inappropriate.
