New details about BLM’s patron saint Jordan Neely are coming out, including the fact he was busted in 2015 for “dragging” a 7-year-old girl down a street in Manhattan in an attempted kidnapping — for which he received only 4 months in jail.
From The New York Daily News:
Neely was arrested 42 times across the last decade, with his most recent bust in November 2021 for slugging a 67-year-old female stranger in the face as she exited a subway station in the East Village, cops said.
The senior citizen suffered a broken nose and fractured orbital bone when she was knocked to the sidewalk, along with swelling and “substantial” head pain after hitting the ground.
Neely eventually pleaded to felony assault and received 15 months in an alternative-to-incarceration program that, if completed, would have allowed him to plead to misdemeanor assault and get a conditional discharge.
But a warrant was issued for his arrest on Feb. 23, when he skipped a court compliance court date where a judge was to be updated on whether he was meeting all the requirements of the program.
On June 27, 2019, Neely was arrested for punching a 64-year-old man in the face during a fight in a Greenwich Village subway station, cops said.
And he 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.
Most of his other arrests were for low-level crimes, many of them for turnstile jumping.
All of Neely’s many sins were wiped away as soon as he allegedly died at the hands of a white person.

Marine veteran Daniel Penny, 25, the Good Samaritan who stepped up to restrain Neely after he threatened passengers while shouting about how he’s “ready to die,” never would have been put in such a position if NYC officials didn’t repeatedly set Neely free and allow him to go around beating people, threatening people, kidnapping children and abusing drugs.
Now NYC officials want to throw the book at Penny and have transformed Neely into a saint! At this rate, it won’t be long until libtards demand Neely get posthumously pardoned for his many crimes, just as they did with the drug-addicted robber and felon George Floyd!
Though Penny was initially released as it was clear he did nothing wrong, CBS News is now reporting that the case is “likely to go to a grand jury next week,” citing law enforcement sources.
In a statement released on Friday evening, Penny’s attorneys said, “Mr. Neely had a documented history of violence and erratic behavior, the apparent result of ongoing and untreated mental illness.”
“When Mr. Neely began aggressively threatening Daniel Penny and other passengers, Daniel, with the help of others, acted to protect themselves, until help arrived. Daniel never intended to harm Mr. Neely and could not have foreseen his untimely death.”
