Yes, we have another George Floyd incident. And just like before, the liberal-backed media and progressive politicians are painting him as a saint. But they failed to mention an arrest record that proves otherwise.
If you haven’t heard, Jordan Neely is the new face of leftist racism. When he entered a subway train car two weeks ago, he threatened his fellow passengers immediately. The threats were so bad that after being scared for their lives, a group finally saw an opportunity to take him down and restrain him and took it.
In the aftermath, Neely was dead. According to the coroner’s report, he was strangled. According to crime-loving Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, a 24-year-old Marine veteran named Daniel Penny, who helped others hold Neely down, is responsible for that death.
Penny now faces up to 15 years in prison on second-degree manslaughter charges.
Naturally, mainstream media outlets have pointed to Penny as the bad guy and Neely as an innocent.
But the media has failed to disclose to the masses that the latter had an arrest record a mile long, and not for just petty theft or DUIs.
So far, we’ve only found one outlet that has reported on a few of Neely’s past crimes, the New York Daily News – although it took them 23 paragraphs to admit them.
Among the 42 arrests on his record (yes, he’d been arrested a whopping 42 times) was one in 2015 after he unsuccessfully attempted to kidnap a seven-year-old girl.
“(Neely) was busted in August 2015 for attempted kidnapping after he was seen dragging a 7-year-old girl down an Inwood street. He pled guilty to endangering the welfare of a child and was sentenced to four months in jail.”
In 2019, he was arrested after punching a 64-year-old man. In 2021, he was arrested for “slugging a 67-year-old female stranger in the face as she exited a subway station in the East Village.” That woman’s nose was broken, and her eye socket fractured.
Not so much of a saint, huh? And certainly, a man who shouldn’t have been out on the streets.
