Protesters jump onto subway tracks, clash with NYPD over Jordan Neely’s death

At least seven people were arrested in Manhattan Saturday after shutting down subway service and clashing with NYPD officers while protesting the chokehold death of homeless man Jordan Neely, law enforcement sources told The Post.

Dozens of demonstrators jumped onto the subway tracks at Lexington Avenue and East 63rd Street around 6:15 p.m., forcing an oncoming Q train to slam on the brakes at the mouth of the tunnel, video shows.

“No justice, no peace!” the protesters chanted as police can be heard struggling to call for order in the background.

The risky move caused the power to temporarily shut off in the Lenox Hill station.

Protests in New York City subways over the death of Jordan Neely.

GAMA SOSA: Jordan Neely’s Death Is No Surprise. The Democrats Destroyed Everything That Could Have Helped Him
https://dailycaller.com/2023/05/05/gama-sosa-jordan-neely-death-dem-policies/

Quote
The death of the mentally-ill (or desperate) Jordan Neely unsurprisingly has the Democrats howling with accusations of racism while we inch ever-closer to riot season and the 2024 campaign. Pundits such as Jesse Watters have noted that when DAs such as Alvin Bragg defund the police, vigilantism takes hold. Older readers might remember another “subway vigilante” – Bernie Goetz – who shot four teenagers who attempted to rob him in the “bad old days” in 1984.

Now, no amount of police funding or tough-on-crime policies are going to solve this problem because at its root, the issue is spiritual.

Much has been written on the decline of the family, welfare and concentration of poverty in housing projects – all factors that help create Jordan Neelys of every race. But often ignored are the institutions that support a healthy society and allow for “community policing” of problem people such as Neely – all institutions which the Democratic party and liberal establishment are working overtime to destroy.

Chief among these are the churches and the charities they spawn. We’re not talking about politicized non-profits made to socially engineer society in Bill Gates’ image, but organizations that see themselves as carrying out God’s work in the world that expect nothing in return.

Many charities have shut down.

Quote
New York City, where Neely lived, is case in point. For example, look at the numerous Catholic hospitals, schools and social organizations, which historically served the city’s poorest, that have all shut down or been bought out due to lack of funding after their parishes bled faithful to progressivism.

The Democrats and the DC welfare-warfare state have assured us that if we just give them more power and money, they will fill the void. Usually, this is either a lie or they screw it up – but someone always walks away with a full bank account. Compare government programs such as Johnson’s War on Poverty and Great Society with those with vaunted privately-funded charitable institutions such as Chicago’s Hull House and New York’s The Children’s Aid Society that helped destitute European immigrants achieve the American Dream. Which ones gave more bang for their buck?

And the war on our community institutions continues. During COVID-19, we saw spikes in mental illness, drug and alcohol abuse, child abuse and suicide thanks to government-mandated lockdowns – mostly in blue cities. Yet the Gavin Newsoms and Gretchen Whitmers of the world shut down churches and other houses of worship, community centers and parks – the very places that could have helped control the worst effects of the shutdowns. Tellingly, liquor stores, strip clubs/brothels and abortion clinics stayed open – institutions that play a central role in our nihilistic culture that breeds mental illness and misery.

America is declining. There is no sense of community.

And no sense of family,self responsibility and no sense of religion..

When the average person is sick and tired of being a victim of the progressive destruction of a civilized society and protects themselves against a criminal they are instantly condemned as a vigilante and the perpetrators are turned into saints and martyrs  :thatsright: :argh: :argh: :argh: :argh: :argh: :argh: :argh:

The NY Post is a good publication (well, at least they have the balls to tell the story), but one thing they missed - where is Al Sharpton?

You know that race baiter is involved in this shit, and that he's no stranger to a camera. So where the hell is he?

NYCers who voted for the likes of Alvin Bragg and the previous mayor are reaping what they've sown. As for the current mayor, he's not delivering what he promised, not unlike SF's Mayor London Breed.
If, as anti-Covid-vaxxers claim, https://www.poynter.org/fact-checking/2021/robert-f-kennedy-jr-said-the-covid-19-vaccine-is-the-deadliest-vaccine-ever-made-thats-not-true/ , https://gospelnewsnetwork.org/2021/11/23/covid-shots-are-the-deadliest-vaccines-in-medical-history/ , The Vaccine is deadly, where in the US have Pfizer and Moderna hidden the millions of bodies of those who died of "vaccine injury"? Is reality a Big Pharma Shill?

Millions now living should have died. Anti-Covid-Vaxxer ghouls hardest hit.

Not seeing a down side.

There isn't a light rail system - above or below ground - anywhere on the planet that can stop short on approach to a scheduled station just because some DUmbass thought "down on the rails" was a good place to catch it.

Let them become the smears on the cowcatcher that these Darwinian rejects are destineed to be (if not now, then somewhere down the line). I'm thoroughly tired of walking on eggshells around these speshul widdle snowflakes anymore.

If the mayor tried to clean up the mess he would be branded a racist  :thatsright:
