Iconic movie star Denzel Washington defended America’s law enforcement officers and soldiers during a recent interview published by Yahoo News; saying he has the “utmost respect” for the people that protect our freedoms every single day.
“I have the utmost respect for what they do, for what our soldiers do, [people] that sacrifice their lives,” Washington tells Yahoo Entertainment. “I just don’t care for people who put those kind of people down. If it weren’t for them, we would not have the freedom to complain about what they do.”
“I went out on call with a sergeant,” he recalls. “We got a call of a man outside his house with a rifle that was distraught. We pulled up and did a U-turn past the house and came up short of the house. He told me to sit in the car, which I was gonna do. I wasn’t getting out. He got out. As he got out, another car came screaming up and two young people jumped out screaming. As it turned out, it was their grandfather. This policeman defused the entire situation by just remaining calm.
“But it showed me in an instant how they can lose their life. … He didn’t overreact. He could’ve pulled his gun out and shot the people that came up driving real fast. He could’ve shot the old man that was distraught and a bit confused, I think he was suffering a little bit from dementia. But in an instant it taught me, and I never forgot it, what our law enforcement people have to deal with moment to moment, second to second.”

HOLLYWEIRD: A-List Actor Warns of ‘Blood in the Streets’ if Trump Isn’t ‘Stopped’
Hollywood celebrity James Cromwell unloaded on President Trump during an industry event this week; viciously accusing the Commander-in-Chief of promoting “nascent fascism” in the United States.
Cromwell spoke with reporters while walking the red carpet at an event honoring his work as a “character actor” when he slammed the President for damaging American “institutions.”
“This is nascent fascism. We always had a turnkey, totalitarian state — all we needed was an excuse, and all the institutions were in place to turn this into pure fascism,” Cromwell told Variety over the weekend. “If we don’t stop [President Trump] now, then we will have a revolution for real. Then there will be blood in the streets.”
“We’re living in very curious times, and something is coming up which is desperately important to this country and to this planet, and that is an election, in which hopefully in some measure we are going to take back our democracy,” Cromwell added during his acceptance speech.

HOLLYWEIRD: Crazed Rob Reiner Says Trump ‘THREATENS’ Global Democracy
Hollywood filmmaker Rob Reiner continued his all-out war with President Trump Tuesday, accusing the Commander-in-Chief of posing a direct “threat” to the United States and other “democracies throughout the world.”
The hyper-liberal celebrity trashed Trump on social media, saying his “denial” to accept Russian election interference was posing a direct threat to American democracy; adding the US no longer has “a patriot in the White House.”
“Once again our entire intelligence and law enforcement communities have unequivocally stated that Russia has attacked and continues to attack our democracy and democracies throughout the world. Trump’s continual denial threatens US. We don’t have a patriot in the Whitehouse,” Reiner tweeted.
