According to reports, they only mad at him over his lack of action over the death of Eric Garner 😛 TAGEND

De Blasio may finally have gotten the breakout moment of his presidential campaign: coming heckled frequently during a national televised debate by opponents announcing for him to fire the NYPD officer who gave a lover into a fatal chokehold during his first time as mayor.

Corey Booker opening statement interrupted by protesters reciting “Fire Pantaleo! ” It’s a reference to the NYPD officer participate fully in the Eric Garner killing. There was similar chorus during de Blasio’s opening but not quite as loud.
