Quentin Tarintino is publicly in war with police saying "cops are murderers" and he is not backing down. He said he knows how "scary cops are" because he did time in Los Angeles
Now, LA police are saying it is not true.
Here is what Tarantino said. Can you know if he is truthful, or must records alone speak?
“Back when I was in my 20s and broke, I was a little scared of the cops, all right? And oftentimes, I had warrants out on me for traffic stuff that I never took care of and everything, I’d get stopped, and I’d have to do eight days in county jail.”
You may note that the rule of commitment is:
a. First Person Singular "I"
b. Past Tense verb
c. The specific detail given
“Back when I was in my 20s and broke,
Here we have a lengthy introduction first;
I was a little scared of the cops, all right?
The original claim was that people have every right to be afraid of police and he himself was afraid. Now, he is "a little" and finishes his sentence with a question, asking if the listener, Bill Maer will agree, with "all right?"
And oftentimes, I had warrants out on me for traffic stuff that I never took care of and everything,
He still has not given us a straight statement of "I was in jail" yet .
Please note that percentages of lengthy introductions are closely associated with deception, as they show a delay of moving to a direct lie, which is rare and stressful.
I’d get stopped, and I’d have to do eight days in county jail.”
He does not use the straight past tense, but instead says what he "would" have to do....
"would" is commonly used in deception and "have to do" is unnecessary.
He does not say "I did 8 days in county jail."
Analysis Conclusion: Deception Indicated
Tarantino in his "war on cops" is lying. He was not in "county jail" but is speaking deceptively to persuade the public that he was, to further justify his anti-police stance.
The language is that of story telling or scripting. It is fiction.
In his 2000 biography, "I went to jail about 3 different times" with the number "3" used, as well as "about";
Most people would consider going to jail a memorable event in life with no need to qualify the number of times.
