New York City Mayor Eric Adams has blasted Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., for ‘interfering’ with the investigation into the subway death of Jordan Neely.
Neely, who is black, was tackled and placed in a chokehold during the incident which occurred onboard an F train in lower Manhattan on Monday.
Neely was tackled by a white marine and other non-white passengers after reportedly making violent threats.
“I don’t mind going to jail and getting life in prison,” freelance journalist Juan Alberto Vazquez, who shot the video of the incident, recalled Neely saying. “I’m ready to die.”
More facts that have to be suppressed in Operation Bum Floyd, video:
[Jordan Neely]…”started threatening riders and saying ‘I’m ready to go back to jail’ and ‘I’ll hurt anyone.'”

Neely had over 40 prior arrests to his name and an open warrant out for his arrest in the assault of a 67-year-old woman in Manhattan’s East Village.
According to Neely’s aunt, he was a homeless schizophrenic.
As you can see there are three men involved in subduing Neely. One is also black or hispanic. The white ex-marine was telling other passengers to call 911, so that police & ambulance could arrive on the scene at the next station.

Although the marine who put him in a chokehold was initially taken into custody and later released, the District Attorney is mulling over whether to press involuntary manslaughter charges.
Prominent Democrats responded to the incident by holding up Neely as a martyr who was murdered unjustly or even “lynched,” with New York Governor Kathy Hochul (D) claiming Neely was “killed for being a passenger.”
Others are circulating videos of him doing Michael Jackson impersonations on the subway.
He was 30 years old.
Black men deserve to grow old—not be lynched on a Subway because they were having a mental health crisis.
Jordan deserved better. Accountability now. pic.twitter.com/aX5qcryrbx

However, as far back as 9 years ago, subway riders were warning other passengers that Neely had started acting like a “maniac”.
A post on Reddit from nine years ago warns the public about #JordanNeely. The man’s death after being restrained by passengers has ignited BLM rage because one of the passengers involved appears to be white. https://t.co/H2x7htqD8J pic.twitter.com/eHKarkHgj7

Others claimed he had tried to push people onto the tracks.
My favorite part is that he had 40+ prior to include aggravated assault, and also someone on reddit recognized him because Neely had tried to push him( the reddit user) onto the tracks prior to this 🤣 Reminder, they lie about all of these “poor victims” all of the time. pic.twitter.com/jnySwAkFxC

Another video shows Neely violently confronting a man on the street.
Joey Boots harassed Jordan Neely AND Tucker Carlson.
One was performing in Times Square as a Michael Jackson impersonator.
Another was fishing, in solitude, by himself.
Their reactions are incredibly different. pic.twitter.com/SAbYlAujLt

AOC responded to the incident by suggesting Neely was murdered for being poor, tweeting, “Jordan Neely was murdered. But bc Jordan was houseless and crying for food in a time when the city is raising rents and stripping services to militarize itself while many in power demonize the poor, the murderer gets protected w/ passive headlines + no charges. It’s disgusting.”

However, New York City Mayor Eric Adams blasted the Congresswoman for her comments during an appearance on CNN.
“I don’t think that’s very responsible at the time when we’re still investigating the situation. Let the DA conduct his investigation with the law enforcement officials,” said Adams.
“To really interfere with that is not the right thing to do. I’m going to be responsible and allow them to do their job,” he added.
