VIDEO: “Traitor!” NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio Booed by New NYPD Officers at Academy Graduation Ceremony
NYPD officers aren’t just turning their backs on Mayor Bill de Blasio now — they’ve taken to outright heckling and booing him. During the graduation ceremony for the newest members of the police department, de Blasio was booed as he took the stage, and there were even cries of “traitor!” from the audience.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio was booed today by the newest members of the New York Police Department as he delivered a speech at the academy graduation ceremony.
Several boos could be heard at Madison Square Garden as de Blasio took the podium in front of 884 newly-minted cops.
At least one cadet could be heard shouting ‘traitor!’ the New York Post reports.
Then, when de Blasio remarked that the new officers would be confronted with problems they didn’t make, someone from the crowd shouted, ‘You created them!’ The heckler was met with applause and cheering.
This kind of toxic environment in New York City needs to end, and there is one person responsible for it: Mayor Bill de Blasio. What will it take for him to finally take responsibility and step down?
