The Challenge: Expenses introduced in opposition to Daniel Penny for using a lethal maintain on a person on the subway.
Specters of day by day shootings and stabbings in city settings certainly swirled inside the thoughts of Daniel Penny earlier than he determined to subdue a person exhibiting irregular, unpredictable habits in a New York subway automobile (“Felony rap due vs. Marine,” Could 12).
What number of occasions can we ask ourselves what might need been had somebody heeded the warning indicators exhibited by shooters or random attackers of harmless victims?
Trapped inside a transferring subway automobile, no safety personnel current, Daniel Penny acted for the larger good of his fellow passengers.
Whereas assaults on residents have develop into the norm, thwarting attainable assaults is a high-risk endeavor. Higher Daniel Penny and his fellow passengers shudder of their seats praying they make it to the following cease.
Liberal Manhattan District Lawyer Alvin Bragg has filed costs in opposition to ex-Marine hero Daniel Penny for defending folks on a subway.
All this motion by Bragg will do is make folks look the opposite approach when somebody is attacked.

The dying of Jordan Neely is very poignant for dialogue throughout this Psychological Well being Consciousness Month.
The destiny of Daniel Perry will probably be determined in our courts, however the circumstances upon which they met may by no means have occurred if the psychiatric wants of Mr. Neely had been met in a well timed method by our metropolis. He was reportedly featured on an inventory of the highest 50 folks needing mental-health companies within the metropolis.
We’re clearly wanting wanted companies and methods that make sure the followup and monitoring of those people. We’re woefully brief in all regards.
I recommend Mayor Adams kind a process drive to seek for an exemplary mannequin of mental-health care throughout this nation and elsewhere for adoption. And if we discover one, it’s clearly too late for Neely. They failed him.
Maybe nothing higher exemplifies the gross perversion of common sense legislation enforcement in New York Metropolis (and different leftist bastions) than the second-degree manslaughter costs introduced in opposition to ex-Marine Daniel Perry.
Harmless straphangers had been threatened by an individual who ought to have been permitted to roam neither the streets nor subways. The dying of Neely was not supposed.
Alas, had Neely been arrested by the police, he would have been launched the identical day. Rinse-and-repeat justice.
There’s inhabitants flight from New York Metropolis. Not an enormous shocker there.
Daniel Penny is being charged with second-degree manslaughter.
What a tragic day and utter shame for New York Metropolis. This courageous younger former Marine took a probably harmful scenario and tried to guard the lives of the opposite commenters on the subway automobile.
The place are all of the studies of and arrests for the killings, muggings and robberies on the New York subway system for the previous couple of years?
This younger man stepped right into a harmful scenario, not understanding how it will work out. However he was keen to attempt to deliver it underneath management.
If Jordan Neely was let down by town leaders’ insurance policies, this dying is on their fingers. I pray for a simply final result.

Our society and tradition is accountable for this case. Jordan Neely ought to’ve been helped.
We’ve got many individuals within the metropolis who could be helped, however the mental-health system is an open, revolving door. The anti-police tradition has crime approach up. The subways are harmful once more.
Residents of town really feel like they should step as much as shield themselves and their fellow residents. Lack of police will breed vigilantism. Actually, what would we anticipate?
