Good Samaritan Daniel Penny to be Charged With Manslaughter in Jordan Neely Subway Case

Good Samaritan Daniel Penny to be Charged With Manslaughter in Jordan Neely Subway Case

“Ten days after Neely died and more than a dozen protests later, the Manhattan district attorney announced Thursday second degree manslaughter charges for Penny”

Daniel Penny, the Marine who subdued Jordan Neely on a New York City subway last week, is set to be charged with manslaughter. It is believed that the sleeper hold Penny used on Neely led to his death.

Left wing activists have been calling for the arrest, while others have pointed out that Penny was acting to protect other people on the train from Neely, who had voiced threats and seemed unstable.

CBS News in New York reports:

Daniel Penny to be charged with manslaughter Friday in Jordan Neely’s chokehold death

Daniel Penny will be arrested in Jordan Neely’s chokehold death Friday, the Manhattan district attorney’s office said.

Penny will face a charge of manslaughter in the second degree.

Sources tell CBS2 that Penny is expected to surrender to police Friday morning. He’ll then be arraigned at Manhattan Criminal Court, and the court will determine whether or not to set bail.

If found guilty, Penny could face up to 15 years in prison.

Ten days after Neely died and more than a dozen protests later, the Manhattan district attorney announced Thursday second degree manslaughter charges for Penny, the 24-year-old Marine veteran seen holding Neely in a chokehold on the subway for nearly three minutes on May 1.

Penny was questioned by police and released without being charged.

The medical examiner’s office later ruled Neely’s death a homicide.

“Accountability is key to make changes,” said Milton Perez, with Vocal New York.

“We want to see this man prosecuted,” said Tanesha Grant, with Parents Supporting Parents New York.

The mob is being egged on by some of the very people who called for the defunding of police.

People are already raising funds for Penny’s defense.

Newsweek reports:

Daniel Penny Raises $100K as Supporters Rush to Help Fight Charge

Donations are pouring in for Daniel Penny after prosecutors announced that the U.S. Marine veteran will be criminally charged in the choking death of Jordan Neely.

Penny, a 24-year-old white man, was captured on video placing Neely, a Black former street performer with a history of homelessness and mental health issues, in a chokehold that turned deadly during a subway ride in New York City last week…

On the same day, a fundraiser for Penny’s legal expenses appeared on the self-described “Christian fundraising site” GiveSendGo. The campaign had raised over $100,000 at the time of publication.

The fundraising page describes Penny as a “twenty-four-year-old college student and decorated Marine veteran” who is “facing a criminal investigation stemming from him protecting individuals on a NYC subway train from an assailant who later died.”

Here are some Twitter reactions:

Jordan Neely had multiple arrests over the last two years and an active warrant. Had the state of New York dealt with him when they had the chance, none of this would have happened.

No good deed goes unpunished.

nordic prince | May 12, 2023 at 7:35 am

being afraid of an unarmed person is not a reason to kill them.

Except if it’s an innocent unborn baby – right, Occasional Cortex?

Then merciless slaughter is perfectly acceptable.

Donations can be made through Give Send Go…right now the total is just shy of 174,000. Many of the donations are modest… around $20. The campaign is easy to find, just search for Daniel.

I hope he collects a ton more money and uses it to take a nice long trip to whereabouts unknown. He should not be charged, and once charged he will be convicted. If by some incredible miracle he were to be found not guilty, the feds would step in and convict him of a civil rights violation. He is toast unless he takes a long trip.

Two Words: Jury Nullification

That is all.

    Lucifer Morningstar in reply to Lucifer Morningstar. | May 12, 2023 at 11:08 am

    Ah, so the people that are down voting me without comment actually think that Penny is going to receive a fair and impartial trial? That the mob hasn’t already decided his guilt and the jury knows effing well that any verdict other than “Guilty” is going to put them right in the bullseye of that very same mob? That this isn’t a modern day lynching of white people that has only one outcome?

    The defense is going to need to use every trick in the book to prevent their client from ending up in prison for the next 15 years.

    So I repeat:

    Two Words: Jury Nullification

    Get enough people on the jury that are sympathetic with your side and hope that it’s enough to get a verdict of “Not Guilty”. You know darn sure the prosecution is going to attempt to do the same thing to get a hands down “Guilty” verdict.

    That is all.

    henrybowman in reply to Lucifer Morningstar. | May 12, 2023 at 12:22 pm

    Saying those two words in NYC is like saying “lutefisk buffet” in Nigeria.

Lucifer Morningstar | May 12, 2023 at 8:41 am

Jordan Neely had multiple arrests over the last two years and an active warrant.

And how much does anyone want to bet that the prosecutor(s) will convince the Judge that Neely’s past criminal history (including the active warrant) is “irrelevant” and will not be allowed to be presented to the jury.

    His prior criminal history should be irrelevant.

    I’m sure the legal minds here can explain when a criminal’s prior record could be presented to the jury.

      Lucifer Morningstar in reply to alien. | May 12, 2023 at 11:14 am

      Yep. So make Neely out to be a freaking Saint and not the dangerous and habitual criminal that he was. Good effing idea. If you’re on the side of the prosecution.

        You’ve never been seated on a jury, have you?

        Or have a basic understanding of the law?

          Lucifer Morningstar in reply to alien. | May 13, 2023 at 9:38 am

          Yes, I have. And yes, I do. So what’s your fucking point with your idiotic attack, exactly?

          Have you every been seated on jury, have you?
          Do you have even a basic understanding of the law as it stands today?

          Do you? Do you???

      BierceAmbrose in reply to alien. | May 12, 2023 at 10:57 pm

      Lay person here. What I’ve seen, roughly speaking, goes:

      — If the charged knows the history, history possibly allowed as basis for reasonableness of fear, balanced vs. history being prejudicial, or irrelevant.

      — There’s an argument for inclusion, if defense pushes back on what the flailing guy was doing in the subway car.

      “He was quietly sitting on his hands, and this guy just choked him.”

      “Well, this isn’t the first time he’s flailed around in subway cars; this is a thing that happens. See these convictions, here?”

I just made a donation through GSG. I don’t think I’ve EVER given to a more deserving cause. Perry-who represents ALL of us-will need all the help he can get. That crazy bastard Neely turned a good man’s life upside down. Grrrr!

    Yeah, I gave, too. I was born and raised in NYC and have dealt with criminals, there, personally, but, this case strikes a chord with morally upright people of conscience, regardless of origins or present location, because of the implications at work — the vile and totalitarian Dumb-o-crats demanding that citizens meekly accept criminals’ belligerent and violent predations, and, punishing those citizens and good Samaritans who possess the courage and means to defend themselves, and, others.

Lucifer Morningstar | May 12, 2023 at 8:48 am

On the same day, a fundraiser for Penny’s legal expenses appeared on the self-described “Christian fundraising site” GiveSendGo.

Wow. How biased. Especially with the scare quotes around Christian fundraising site. Perhaps someone should contact the author of the article and tell them GiveSendGo is a Christian fundraising site (not a self-described one) and that there was no need for the scare quotes at all.

But I wouldn’t expect any less from the liberal mainstream media.

    Fat_Freddys_Cat in reply to Lucifer Morningstar. | May 12, 2023 at 9:11 am

    They’re just mad because they can’t get the fundraiser shut down by caterwauling about it on Twitter.

    Interesting — when I type “Give Send Go” into the Brave browser, a subhead comes up as I’m typing it in:

    “The #1 Free Christian Fundraising Site”

    It doesn’t state that anywhere on the site — only in the header. Is that some leftover code, perhaps when they used that motto in the past?

RepublicanRJL | May 12, 2023 at 9:42 am

Yup, prosecute because he’s white but not the black guy for assisting?

In the meantime, felons are being let go after arraignment on cashless bail.

$230,000 and growing

Unfortunately we know what the verdict will be

Hopefully he has a good defense attorney and can get the trial set for immediately. Because the persecution then has no additional time to fabricate evidence and is clearly not prepared to proceed.

252, 000

But it could be 10 million, he will not get a fair trial in NYC

I gave

Rational, sane and morally upright Americans (i.e., conservatives) are sick and tired of seeing the Dumb-o-crats and the media work overtime to lionize and cast manifestly belligerent and violent black sociopath criminals as alleged martyrs.

The list is too long to name, here — Mumia Abu-Jamal, Stanley “Tookie” Williams, Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, George Floyd, and, now, Jordan Neely. And, many others.

The Dumb-0-crat apparatchiks want citizens to meekly submit to criminals’ violent predations, and, seek to punish those citizens who possess the temerity to defend their lives and others’ lives, by fighting back. This is the hallmark of a profoundly immoral and evil totalitarian regime — make no mistake.

thalesofmiletus | May 12, 2023 at 10:41 am

This is why no one steps in and helps.

    guyjones in reply to thalesofmiletus. | May 12, 2023 at 10:51 am

    Legal consequences play a role, but, rank cowardice/indifference are also major factors.

    CommoChief in reply to thalesofmiletus. | May 12, 2023 at 12:04 pm

    Partly yes. The point here is to make an example of Penny so others see the consequences to interference with the weirdos loose in some Cities.

    This is just another stop on the long cultural train ride beginning in the ’60s with the bra burning extreme feminists who have been in low intensity conflict with men, as a group, since then. The extreme feminists hate masculinity. They abhor the idea of competent, capable, confident men.

    Many of them raised their own sons to be weak and submissive. Some carried this over into their jobs at schools and hospitals. They taught their Daughters they didn’t need a man. Now their Daughters say ‘men are trash’, ‘men are toxic’, ‘men are predators’ and ‘believe all women’.

    The few competent men remaining who are still capable of using violence in defense of others are wary b/c there isn’t any upside. They have lost confidence in the willingness of society to support their actions. This result is by design just as the extreme feminists began nearly three generations ago.

Ah, yes, isn’t it amazing how the despicable mainstream media propagandists cast the violent, recidivist criminal sociopath, Neely, into an allegedly benign and benevolent “street performer” and “Michael Jackson impersonator” — he merely wanted to bring joy to the world, like a clown! — similar to how the belligerent Trayvon Martin, who indefensibly attacked George Zimmerman without provocation and attempted to murder him by slamming his head into a concrete sidewalk, was cast as a allegedly mild-mannered teen skipping his way home after buying Skittles and iced tea, and, Michael Brown, who committed a strong-arm robbery of a convenience store, and, who attacked a police officer, was an alleged “gentle giant.”

So, you can’t stand your ground, you can’t defend yourself, and you can’t restrain a belligerent. Civil rights is a many politically congruent (“=”) thing in the big “crapple”.

Some, Select [Black] Lives Matter

Throw another baby on the barbie, cannibalize her profitable parts, sequester her carbon pollutants, it’s over.

“Despite what Fox News wants you to believe, being afraid of an unarmed person is not a reason to kill them.”

Yes, it is. “Unarmed” doesn’t mean harmless. If you have a reasonable fear of death or severe bodily harm from someone, you’re justified in shooting them.

That includes a woman defending herself against rape when the attacker is a foot taller, and 100lbs of muscle heavier.

    gonzotx in reply to Crawford. | May 12, 2023 at 12:54 pm

    Working in nursing I can tell you how dangerous unarmed people can be

      CommoChief in reply to gonzotx. | May 12, 2023 at 7:27 pm

      Yep. Restraining a person who is just moderately resistant, not fighting/throwing blows, just squirming around without injuring that person is very difficult.

New York’s legal system is FUBAR.

This kind of case is exactly why we allow a change of venue for trial. But since that wasn’t allowed for Trump, it probably won’t be allowed for this other white guy.

Meanwhile, the black guy that helped contain this violent criminal, and all the other violent criminals, go free. New York’s courts are full of systemic racism, and nobody likes the results. If only there was a way to regularly change the identity of the people responsible for these stunts, and throw them out of office…..

“Had the state of New York dealt with him when they had the chance, none of this would have happened.”

Precisely why Soros is funding DAs who let violent and potentially violent criminals loose on the streets. They WANT the chaos, the lawlessness. They WANT law-abiding citizens to protect themselves so they can make an example of them, pushing for everyone to just “accept” rampant crime as the “price” of living in progressive dystopian craphole cities. People will learn not to defend themselves in these areas because they will be the ones who go to prison, not the actual criminals.

Move to a red state. Don’t wait.

So called Red states, like Texas are really purple, still better than blue but not the haven people think
We got plenty of blue, every freaking major city lots of smaller ones too

Oh by the way, our governor is doing pretty much nothing but show boating with millions and millions coming into Texas

Now if he had the balls to take on the government and close it down, he would be a hero and literally ride into the WH

But he ain’t made of the right stuff

RINO for all purposes

    If all the real conservatives and MAGA peeps moved to these purple states, though, that might turn the tide? Of course that would screw up any chances of an EC victory, so maybe not a great idea. /just thinking out loud.

      gonzotx in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | May 12, 2023 at 4:19 pm

      Texas is the only state that has a right to succeed without federal ok
      It’s in our constitution and agreed upon prior to coming into the United States by the then federal Government

      If enough conservative people decide they are tired of the bs, wouldn’t that be victorious

      The leader we need to effect that has not come forth

Look what happened in Austin, man sentenced for 25 years for defending himself

And PLEASE, don’t tell me if your car was surrounded by thugs carrying automatic weapons pointed at you, you wouldn’t save yourself

I deft would have run over them no second thoughts and I definitely need to buy a gun and carry

My GPS sent me into thug town in Dallas, all it took was a bad turn and BAM we were surrounded, I stepped on the gas and never looked back.

This was before the free for all BLM and hate whitey..

Yes the Governor has requested a pardon , but what is taking so long?

I am definitely wondering if he will get it

Of course in NY, that wouldn’t be an option

No longer viable days after, huh. Not a hero. Congress was not at risk. Not a hero.

    n.n in reply to n.n. | May 12, 2023 at 4:13 pm

    Addendum: Given Pelosi’s precedent (PP), he should be… no, still not a hero. Congress did not feel disquieted, inconvenienced, and the FBI was unlikely to be involved (i.e. Whitmer-event).

$525,000 and rising, let’s roll!!!!

Gremlin1974 | May 12, 2023 at 8:16 pm

“The medical examiner’s office later ruled Neely’s death a homicide.”

I despise this phrase, it makes it seem like homicide is equal to Murder, that is not the case. A Homicide is when one human kills another human, that doesn’t make it murder.

Have they explained how he was killed? I don’t see how that hold (left arm around the head) can be used to choke somebody because the inside of his elbow doesn’t touch the front of his throat.

    Dathurtz in reply to randian. | May 13, 2023 at 6:22 pm

    I would bet there was a conversation where the ME was pretty well required to find that the guy died from damage from the restraint. Was the toxicology report released?
