11 Arrested at Protest Demanding Arrest of Vigilante Who Killed Jordan Neely

HeadlineMay 09, 2023

Here in New York, 11 people were arrested at a protest Monday night demanding justice for Jordan Neely, a 30-year-old unhoused Black man who was choked to death on a subway car last week by another passenger. Jordan Neely was crying out that he was hungry, when he was fatally attacked on the train by a 24-year former marine named Daniel Penny. Penny was interviewed by police detectives but has not been arrested. Monday night’s protest follows a similar demonstration on Saturday, when police arrested 13 people at a sit-in protest demanding that Penny face charges. They were on the subway tracks.
