There’s an old adage that says, “No good deed goes unpunished.”
And that’s especially true if you live in a blue state with Democrats running the government.
And now a Judge just proved with one ruling against a Marine hero that only Leftists can receive a fair trial in this dark blue city.
New York’s twisted sense of justice
Instead of prosecuting – or deporting — illegal aliens, New York City is sending students home and housing them in city schools.
Instead of prosecuting Antifa and Black Lives Matter rioters, New York City is giving them money.
Instead of dismissing nuisance lawsuits against Donald Trump, New York City is bringing its own witch-hunt case against the former President.
And now, there’s a Marine who risked his life to save others who is the latest target of Gotham’s identity politics legal system.
Marine hero to stand trial for saving lives
It appears New York City’s District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s vendetta against Donald Trump may extend to any and all non-leftists.
And at least one judge in the city that never sleeps is in on it.
The Post Millennial is reporting a judge has ruled against a motion from lawyers to dismiss charges against Marine subway hero Daniel Penny.
The judge ordered Penny back to court on his second-degree murder charge in March.
According to the Post Millennial, the trial is expected to begin this fall.
Just the facts ma’am
Last Spring, 30-year-old Jordan Neely hopped on a New York City subway car and, according to witnesses, began threatening the lives of passengers.
Witnesses also said Neely aggressively threw his coat to the ground and repeatedly yelled he was willing to die.
Neely was a homeless black man.
While passengers called the police for help, Daniel Penny, a U.S. Marine veteran, wrestled Neely to the ground and put him in a choke hold to restrain Neely until police could arrive.
Warning, some might find the below video disturbing, but you can see Neely was still breathing after the chokehold was released.
It took the police almost 15 minutes to arrive.
Neely was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
Cops questioned Penny and other passengers, including another black man who helped restrain Neely and a Hispanic freelance journalist.
They also watched some videos of the incident.
Officers were also informed that passengers thanked Penny for saving them following the incident.
Law enforcement officials then decided not to arrest the Marine vet.
It turns out, Neely has been arrested at least 42 times, and many of the arrests were for violent crimes, including assault – and even had an outstanding warrant for a 2021 felony assault.
Penny sets the record straight
Bragg has defended the second-degree murder charges against Penny by citing police who found Penny wasn’t “specifically being threatened by Neely when he intervened” and that Neely was not “threatening anyone in particular.”
No, he was just threatening the entire group of passengers as a whole.
Apparently, in the eyes of the New York legal system, Penny should have just let Neely go on a murderous rage.
Penny maintains he had no intention to kill or even wound Neely and noted that he released the hold while Neely was still breathing.
And Penny and his lawyers believe this is an obvious case of self-defense.
“The three main threats that he repeated over and over were ‘I’m going to kill you,’ ‘I’m prepared to go to jail for life,’ and ‘I’m willing to die’,” Penny said.
Penny says it was “a scary situation” and that he was “scared for himself,” as well as all the women and children on board.
Given his military training, he felt he “couldn’t just sit still.”
However, since Penny is white and Neely is black and this is New York City, Penny’s heroic actions aren’t only going unrewarded, but he’s being punished for them.
