Penny must be brought to justice for Neely's heinous murder. This shocking, racially-charged case reveals the worst of America's brutal capitalist society, including the pathologization of Blackness and the oppression of those perceived as mentally ill. Not only did Penny act as if he was entitled to take Neely's life, but he has also been carrying out a character assassination against the deceased.
This incident, which is yet to be litigated in court, is a direct consequence of leftist officials advising police to do nothing to protect New Yorkers that are fed up with being accosted on the subway. While this isn't to say that Penny is fully innocent, it must be stressed that Neely was far from being a harmless man as he had previously severely injured an elderly woman and tried to kidnap a girl. This case is hypercharged by woke identity politics.
There's a 50% chance that New York City's subway ridership will return to pre-COVID pandemic levels for the first time by May 2024, according to the Metaculus prediction community.
