video: Bloomberg facing protests & boos at MLK Jr. event

Students were out protesting the closing of their school followed by booing from the audience at today's MLK Jr. event at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.

Video thanks to NY1; more on Bloomberg's negative reception at Daily News here.  Later in the day he met with more heckling at Al Sharpton's event in Harlem.  When Bloomberg claimed test scores were up, the audience yelled "Wrong, wrong!"

When a heckler inappropriately yelled, "You suck!" during Bloomberg's speech, Bloomberg said, " should be in-" and caught himself. What did the mayor REALLY want to say?

Listening to that 'booing' made me smile from ear to ear. : )
