Protests continue in the city following the chokehold death of a homeless man on the subway.
Jordan Neely was allegedly harassing riders on an “F” train last week, causing former Marine Daniel Penny to put him in a chokehold to subdue him. Neely lost consciousness and later died.
On Monday night, protests erupted at the Broadway-Lafayette station where the incident took place.Some of the demonstrators clashed with police and a Molotov cocktail was found on the ground.
“We respect people’s right to protest, we respect their first amendment rights, but we will not tolerate people breaking the law. More importantly, we will not tolerate people bringing weapons,” Chief of Department Jeffrey Maddrey said.
