Jordan Neely’s Criminal Record: Man Killed on Subway Had 42 Prior Arrests | 4 May 2023 | The killing of a black man on a New York City subway train after fellow riders tackled him and one put him in a chokehold [after Neely threatened people in the train] has brought outrage as well as attention to the man’s arrest history… A New York City police spokesperson told Newsweek that Neely’s record has 42 prior arrests, dating between 2013 and 2021. They include four for alleged assault, while others involved accusations of transit fraud and criminal trespass. At the time of his death, Neely had one active warrant for an alleged assault in connection with a 2021 incident. Many of Neely’s arrests were for alleged violations of local law, the spokesperson said, and involved lower-level offenses such as having an open container of alcohol in public. [Here are a few details on the 2021 “incident” which News[sic]week “forgot” to mention, regarding AOC’s newest hero: “Neely also had numerous arrests on his rap sheet, the most recent in 2021, when he socked an older woman in the head, severely injuring her and landing himself in jail for more than a year, sources said. The 67-year-old woman fell when she was punched Nov. 12, 2021, and broke her nose, fractured her orbital bone and endured ‘bruising, swelling and substantial pain to the back of her head,’ according to charging documents.”]
Shocking video shows NYC subway passenger putting unhinged man in deadly chokehold | 2 May 2023 | Dramatic new video shows a straphanger taking matters into his own hands, pinning down an unhinged man in a deadly incident at a Manhattan subway station this week. The 24-year-old passenger stepped in after the vagrant, identified by sources as Jordan Neely, 30, began going on an aggressive rant on a northbound F train Monday afternoon, according to police and a witness who took the video. “He starts to make a speech,” freelance journalist Juan Alberto Vazquez said in Spanish during an interview Tuesday, referring to the disturbed man. “He started screaming in an aggressive manner,” Vazquez told The Post. “He said he had no food, he had no drink, that he was tired and doesn’t care if he goes to jail. He started screaming all these things, took off his jacket, a black jacket that he had, and threw it on the ground.” That’s when he said the straphanger came up behind Neely and took him to the ground in a chokehold — keeping him there for some 15 minutes, Vazquez said.
Liberal SCOTUS Justice Took $3M From Book Publisher, Didn’t Recuse From Its Cases –Random House was her main source of earned income, but she voted on key decision where publisher stood to lose m-ney, even as similarly positioned colleague recused. | 3 May 2023 | Liberal Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor declined to recuse herself from multiple copyright infringement cases involving book publisher Penguin Random House despite having been paid millions by the firm for her books, making it by far her largest source of income, records show. In 2010, she got a 1.2 million book advance from Knopf Doubleday Group, a part of the conglomerate. In 2012, she reported receiving two advance payments from the publisher totaling 1.9 million. In 2013, Sotomayor voted in a decision for whether the court should hear a case against the publisher called Aaron Greenspan v. Random House, despite then-fellow Justice Stephen Breyer recusing after also receiving m-ney from the publisher. Greenspan was a Harvard classmate of Mark Zuckerberg’s who wrote a book about the founding of Facebook and contended that Random House rejected his book proposal and then awarded a deal to another author who copied his book and eventually turned it into the movie The Social Network.
