De Blasio Booed And Heckled At NYPD Academy Graduation

Monday morning at the NYPD Police Academy graduation, New York mayor Bill de Blasio was greeted with boos when he was introduced to speak. 

 

 

According to CBS New York, de Blasio was met with a mixture of applause, boos, and catcalls when he took the stage to address the new graduates. 

 

 

 

 

But that was not all; an unknown person also heckled De Blasio after he informed the graduates of the upcoming battles they will face.

“Let’s be honest about the realities of our society,” de Blasio told the new officers. “You’ll confront all the problems that plague our society, problems that you didn’t create.”

It was immediately following the last line that someone in the crowd yelled, “You did!” That received a round of applause.
