AN EXCUSE TO RIOT...
"Justice for Jordan Neely," the crowd screamed. “If we don't get it, shut it down."
Once more, the black communist activists, agitators, and media whores are trying to exploit the accidental death of a mentally unstable, violent criminal, 30-year-old Jordan Neely, as he raged on a New York subway. The out-of-control individual who died was allegedly being restrained by a 24-year-old former Marine, apparently to prevent the man from hurting himself or others.
What looked like a bar restraint move has been characterized as a “deadly chokehold,” and the “what do we want, when do we want it" crowd is screaming about the murder of an unarmed black man—ignoring the man’s erratic behavior and the plethora of black attacks on innocent New York residents – some avoiding being pushed off the subway platform onto the tracks. Ignoring that Neely has a history of prior arrests and was known by the MTA authorities and police,
Unfortunately, the slimy Soros-funded political hack, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, will have jurisdiction over the matter.
Helping to inflame the situation, we find the ignorant communist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez talking up murder…
And, of course, the street scene wouldn’t be complete without racist agitator Al Sharpton who likened the Marine’s actions to that of infamous subway gunman Bernie Goetz who shot four Black youths on a train beneath Manhattan just before Christmas in 1984. Claiming, “We cannot end up back to a place where vigilantism is tolerable.”
Let the excuses begin…
Neely reportedly has been unstable since the 2007 death of his mother, who was strangled to death by her boyfriend and found in a suitcase on the side of the Henry Hudson Parkway.
Neely was a beloved and talented Michael Jackson impersonator.
Neely had a “right” to rage against the system – even though bystanders were triggered and afraid for their lives after several subway stabbings.
Having a mental breakdown in public should not be a death sentence.
How potentially dangerous was Neely?
Five passengers called 911 before and during Neely’s fight with the Marine.
Neely was arrested 42 times across the ten years, with his most recent arrest in November 2021 for slugging a 67-year-old female stranger in the face as she exited a subway station in the East Village. The senior citizen received a broken nose and fractured orbital bone when she was knocked to the sidewalk, along with swelling and “substantial” head pain after hitting the ground.
On June 27, 2019, Neely was arrested for punching a 64-year-old man in the face during a fight in a Greenwich Village subway station.
Neely received four months in jail after an August 2015 arrest for the attempted kidnapping of a 7-year-old girl.
And about the lax New York authorities…
The progressive prosecutors allowed Neely to plead to felony assault, where he received 15 months in an alternative-to-incarceration program that, if completed, would have allowed him to plead to misdemeanor assault and get a conditional discharge.
A brave citizen stood up to protect the man from harming himself or others – assisted by two other individuals, one black and one white, who apparently also thought Neely was a potential danger. I see a concerned citizen caught in an unfortunate situation, not a murderer.
I also see the progressive communist democrats lining up their shock troops to rage, riot, loot, and scoot – as a further distraction from the regime’s woes and to generate chaos and confusion.
We are so screwed if we discourage self-defense and good citizenship to protect others. Indeed, the police will not protect you, and the prosecutors won’t prosecute if the police intervene.
