Eye-Witness to Jordan Neely Death Calls Daniel Penny a ‘Hero’

An eyewitness to the accidental choking death of the homeless man, Jordan Neely, that was harassing and threatening passengers on a train earlier this month, called him a hero and criticized Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg for prosecuting him.

The eyewitness, who is a woman of color, claims it is wrong of the liberal District Attorney to prosecute Penny, instead calling him a ‘hero.’ The woman is retired and a 50-year resident of the city. She had this to say in an interview with Fox Digital:

“It was self-defense, and I believe in my heart that he saved a lot of people that day that could have gotten hurt,”

Jordan Neely, a mentally ill homeless man that the media is portraying as a lovable Michael Jackson impersonator, stormed onto the northbound F train at about 2:30 p.m. May 1, screaming and threatening passengers, she said. Her version of events is alarming: 

“I’m sitting on a train reading my book, and, all of a sudden, I hear someone spewing this rhetoric. He said, ‘I don’t care if I have to kill an F, I will. I’ll go to jail, I’ll take a bullet. I’m looking at where we are in the tube, in the sardine can, and I’m like, ‘OK, we’re in between stations. There’s nowhere we can go,’” she said. “The people on that train, we were scared. We were scared for our lives.”

Penny stepped in when he allegedly heard Neely use the words “kill” and “bullet.” At that point, the former Marine took matters into his own hands and, with assistance from other passengers, put Neely in the chokehold that ultimately led to his death.

The eyewitness claims Penny waited until the absolute last minute to act, and when Penny subdued Neely, she heard a thump and her view was obstructed from that point until the train started to empty.

The witness went on to say:

“Mr. Penny cared for people. That’s what he did. That is his crime,”

“Nobody wants to kill anybody. Mr. Penny didn’t want to kill that man,” she said. “You should have seen the way Mr. Penny looked. He was distraught. He was very, very, very visibly distressed. And he didn’t go. He didn’t run. He stayed.” 

Naturally, the media is pushing the narrative of “white man murders black homeless man,” but that is not the way the eyewitness, who happens to be of color, sees it.

“This isn’t about race. This is about people of all colors who were very, very afraid and a man who stepped in to help them,” she said. “Race is being used to divide us.

“I miss the city under the law and order of Giuliani,” she told Fox News Digital. “When it comes to exposing people or subjecting them to violent behavior, the people who are in power and supposed to protect us are not.”

Indeed they are, but in places like New York City, where criminals are given free rein to terrorize the general population, law-abiding citizens live in fear, and good samaritans face jail time if they intercede. It’s an upside-down time to live in New York City, and the nation is watching the Daniel Penny case. If Alvin Bragg puts Penny in prison, the streets of New York may never be safe again.
