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.
Despite what Fox News wants you to believe, being afraid of an unarmed person is not a reason to kill them.
We should never accept a society where such rationale becomes normal.
Especially when powerful incentives exist in politics + media to keep people afraid of each other.

People are already raising funds for Penny’s defense.
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:
The Daniel Penny jurors will know damn well that if they don’t convict, it’ll be THEM the mob is after.
Realize where we are

In NYC, when a known violent, repeat criminal offender with an active warrant out for felony assault threatens you after earlier trying to push people onto train tracks and punching an elderly woman in the face, you're supposed to let yourself be assaulted or worse. https://t.co/FXl2JIX9wx

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.

Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
No good deed goes unpunished.
But punishing good deeds shouldn’t be the legal standard.
Tell that to Derek Chauvin,
This is called anracho-terrorism, and it reeks of the Brownshir terror of pre-Nazi Germany.
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.
Right. The vile Dumb-0-crats’ moral hypocrisy, illogic and inconsistency are appalling and indefensible.
It’s okay to murder babies in the womb, but, please don’t expose a child to gas stove cooking!!!
The Choice to Slaughter, Cannibalize, Sequester is a human rite.
This from a woman who was mortally terrified of unarmed tourists in a building entirely removed from where she was at the moment.
That was different… those people were icky “right wingers.”
If that Marine were trying to kill him, there would be a very different video.
What’s wrong with believing the threats the crazy guy made and acting in self defense?
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.
Done, and, thanks for posting that.
Mike did mention it.. I wasn’t sure if posting a link was appropriate. I made a small donation myself.
And it’s worth it to allow GSG to add the $3 charge to help them operate.
We need these guys — they fight!
Planning on donating soon. This is ridiculous.
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.
Any proceeds collected which exceed those necessary to cover Mr. Penny’s legal defense will be donated to a mental health advocacy program in New York City.
***All funds will be sent to and managed by the law offices of Raiser & Kenniff, P.C***
As long as Penny has his legal costs covered, I’m good with the rest.
Two Words: Jury Nullification
That is all.
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.
Saying those two words in NYC is like saying “lutefisk buffet” in Nigeria.
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.
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?
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???
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.
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.
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?
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.
But it could be 10 million, he will not get a fair trial in NYC
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.
This is why no one steps in and helps.
Legal consequences play a role, but, rank cowardice/indifference are also major factors.
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.
Working in nursing I can tell you how dangerous unarmed people can be
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.
And the voters made it that way.
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.
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
This is the new” Texas
No longer viable days after, huh. Not a hero. Congress was not at risk. Not a hero.
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!!!!
“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.
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?
