The left is at it again, blaming law enforcement for the tragic death of a homeless man on the New York City subway system. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took to social media to voice her outrage over the death of Jordan Neely, claiming that he was “murdered” because he was homeless and crying for food.
But what the radical left fails to mention is that Neely was in the midst of a mental breakdown, threatening and yelling at passengers on the subway. It was a 24-year-old Marine veteran who put Neely in a chokehold for about 15 minutes, while two other passengers restrained him by holding down his arms and shoulders.
Despite the valiant efforts of these individuals to prevent harm to others on the subway, Neely lost consciousness and was later declared dead at the hospital. The New York City Medical Examiner’s Office ruled Neely’s death a homicide caused by pressure to the neck.
Yet, instead of recognizing the bravery of these individuals who stepped in to protect their fellow citizens, Democrats like AOC are demonizing them and calling for police to be defunded. Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office promised to review the Medical Examiner’s report and footage, identify and interview witnesses and obtain medical records, but that’s not good enough for the radical left.
It’s time for us to stand up and defend our law enforcement officers who risk their lives every day to keep us safe. Instead of blaming cops for the actions of mentally unstable individuals, we should be calling for better mental health care and support for those in need.
Let’s not let the radical left continue to demonize our brave men and women in blue. It’s time to stand up for what’s right and support our law enforcement.
