An online fundraiser for Daniel Penny, the man who earlier this month put Jordan Neely into a fatal chokehold aboard the New York City subway, has surpassed $400,000, and the number keeps on rocketing upwards.

The GiveSendGo page set up by Raiser & Kenniff, P.C. says the money will go toward the legal defense fund for Penny, a 24-year-old U.S. Marine veteran and college student, as he faces a second-degree manslaughter charge over the death of Neely, a homeless man who allegedly was terrorizing people on the train before Penny restrained him with a headlock for about 15 minutes.

Donations, some as high as $1,000, and prayers could be seen on the page after Penny surrendered to law enforcement in New York to be arraigned on Friday. Penny, who pleaded not guilty and was released on $100,000 bail, faces up to 15 years if convicted.

“Funds are being raised to pay Mr. Penny’s legal fees incurred from any criminal charges filed and any future civil lawsuits that may arise, as well as expenses related to his defense,” the fundraising page says. “All contributions are greatly appreciated. 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.”

A grand jury in Manhattan indicted Daniel Penny, the man who put Jordan Neely into a fatal headlock aboard a New York City subway train last month, according to multiple reports on Wednesday.

The New York Post, which reported the indictment based on sources, said exact charges remain unclear. The charges will be unsealed when Penny is arraigned on the indictment at a later date, a local ABC affiliate reported.

Can Daniel Penny Get a Fair Trial? (open thread)

June 14 2023

A Federal Grand Jury has indicted Daniel Penny for taking action on a subway car to protect other passengers from what he believed was a dangerous threat - Jordan Neely screaming into the face of women and children that he would kill them

This case sent so many of the elites mostly into an agonizing spiral of guilt and fear - it had to be racism because what else could it possibly be? Most people I know probably believe that. I would imagine all of my former Facebook friends wrote status updates doing just that. But people who ride the subway daily in New York, and most of those on the train with him, have seemed to side with Penny.

Penny will have countless witnesses who tell the truth about what happened on that subway car, how scared they were, and how relieved they were that Penny and others stepped in. The sad irony is that he used a method of restraint he believed would not harm Neely. Ultimately, though, he did what Marines are trained to do: put his life on the line to protect others.

The media has taken the side they know their viewers want - that it was all about race and that he deliberately tried to cause him harm. This entire report, for instance, defends the mayor, defends the city, and lays all of the blame at the feet of Daniel Penny. They find the one subway rider who thought he only restrained him because was “poor and Black.”

I'm heartbroken to say this, but I believe that fair trials are no longer to be expected in ANY circumstance.

A fair trial adheres to the written law. It judges the specific actions of the accused against the standards set by the actual law, regardless of that person's coincidental sex, race, age, socioeconomic status, political or religious beliefs, sexual orientation, or any other extraneous fact. A fair trial assesses the case before it on its merit, without fear of social, financial or legal reprisal. A fair trial is conducted in a controlled environment (typically a courtroom,) not on social media. The advocates in a fair trial are the lawyers representing the parties - not anonymous brainwashed epithet chanting trolls sitting behind an opaque computer screen.

None of this happens anymore. What was once a foundational pillar of our society has been decimated by billionaire cliques, whispering campaigns, bought-and-paid for lies from our highest office holders and their uber-wealthy donors. There are no impartial judges, prosecutors, investigators, lawyers, juries. There is a "right" (left) answer for everything, and buckle up if you dare even look the demon in the eyes.
