Support Pours in For Daniel Penny-‘Do The Right Thing. Dan Did’

A Marine veteran accused of second-degree manslaughter has received an outpouring of support after an altercation between him and a belligerent homeless man, Jordan Neely, that occurred on a New York subway went viral.

As of Saturday afternoon, Penny raised a whopping $1.2 million for his legal defense on GiveSendGo.

Some people have donated five or four figures as one person, who chose to remain anonymous, shelled out $10,000 for the 24-year-old veteran’s legal defense.

The person did leave a comment that read: ‘Thank you for protecting the citizens that day.’

Another person who remained anonymous gave $5,000, advising people to ‘do the right thing’ as they believed Penny did.

‘Do the right thing. Dan did. It’s not that tough.’ The donor said.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis also plugged Penny’s GiveSendGo

“We must defeat the Soros-Funded DAs, stop the Left’s pro-criminal agenda, and take back the streets for law-abiding citizens,” DeSantis said in a tweet where he inserted a link to Penny’s legal defense fundraiser.

RedState said that DeSantis’ comments further indicate that he plans to run for President in 2024, saying that they are ‘another clear marker he is prepping a run for higher office, i.e., the Presidency, in either 2024 or 2028, most likely 2024.’

An autopsy conducted before the decision by the Manhattan DA’s office to prosecute Penny ruled Neely’s cause of death as a homicide.

‘Jordan Neely should still be alive today,’ Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg said.

Conflicting narratives have emerged in the wake of Neely’s death. Some people say that Penny putting Neely in a chokehold was an overreaction and that he should be criminally liable.

Representative Alexandria Occasio Cortez, D-Ny. said that Neely’s past criminal record and actions on the subway did not justify Penny’s actions.

Others have said that Neely’s charges prove that there is a two-tiered justice system due to Neely’s numerous arrests where he was let off with a slap on the wrist.

Penny was forced to pay a relatively modest bond relative to the charges against him for his freedom. His family had to put up $10,000 with another $90,000 guaranteed if he did not attend scheduled court dates.

Ira Judelson, who has arranged bonds for a series of defendants in high-profile cases, said that Penny is ‘not a flight risk.’ He said: ‘I’ve been doing this for 25 years, and in my opinion, he will answer all his court dates and be there.’

He added: ‘I don’t know what happened on that train. I can tell you Mr. Penny will be in court.’

Judelson said that Penny’s initial court appearance ‘went smoothly.’

‘The court appearance went smoothly. Penny’s life is a whirlwind right now. His name is all over the place’.

Thomas Kenniff, one of Penny’s defense lawyers, said that Neely’s death was accidental and that Penny is dealing with the situation with the ‘integrity and honor that is characteristic of who he is and characteristic of his honorable service in the United States Marine Corps.’
