(PM.) Full footage that emerged on social media this Sunday revealed that marine corps veteran Daniel Penny had placed Jordan Neely in a “recovery position” after subduinghim on the New York City subway earlier this week.
Jordan Neely, a 30-year-old violent homeless man and repeat offender with over 40 prior arrests, died on Monday after Penny, 24, had placed him into a chokehold on the F train. Neely had reportedly started behaving erratically and showing aggression towards other passengers.
The unearthed full footage revealed passengers complimenting Penny for taking action. It also shows Penny and one other passenger arranging Neely’s body in the “recovery position” in an attempt to ensure that he would be okay. A passenger off screen can be heard saying “he’ll be alright.” Neely appears to be moving late in the video.
Why isn’t the media covering the fact that Daniel Penny was complemented by other passengers and also put Jordan Neely in the recovery position?
Seems like key details to leave out. pic.twitter.com/hA8qSNtrCu

The footage was discovered by Twitter account Mythinformed on Facebook.
Penny had restrained Neely in a chokehold before he fell unconscious.
The former Marine was taken into custody following the incident, but was ultimately released.
New York’s medical examiner determined that Jordan Neely died from “compresison of neck” and stated that his death was the result of “homicide.”
The incident has since gone viral across social media, and sparked protests perpetuated by far-left activists, politicians, and Black Lives Matter throughout New York City.
Politicians like AOC and Ayanna Pressley have accused Daniel Perry of murdering an innocent black man suffering from a mental health crisis.
“This honestly feels like a new low: not being able to clearly condemn a public murder because the victim was of a social status some would deem ‘too low’ to care about. The last sentence is especially rich from an admin trying to cut the very services that could have helped him,” AOC said.
