BREAKING: Multiple arrests made in NYC subway after far-left Jordan Neely protesters turn violent

Far-left protesters stopped the subways in their tracks.

Far-left protesters clashed with subway riders and MTA workers in the New York City subway sytem on Saturday, with activists standing in the train tracks preventing trains from moving. The protesters were reacting to the death of Jordan Neely, who was killed during an altercation with passengers on Monday. 

Independent journalist and Frontlines reporter Rebecca Brannon was on the scene at the Lexington and 63rd Street MTA stop documenting the chaos. She said that the subway was being evacuated and that there were multiple arrests.

"No justice, no peace," protesters chanted.

Activists blocked trains and argued with MTA workers as well.

NYPD moved in on the subway platform to arrest disruptive protesters.

Multiple arrests were made.

Protesters chanted the name of Mayor Eric Adams as well.

Protesters invoked Eric Garner, who died in police custody on Staten Island in 2014. Garner said "I can't breathe" as he was restrained by police. He had been arrested for selling loose cigarettes. His daughter went on to become a BLM activist. She died at age 27.

Neely's death was ruled a homicide by the medical examiner of New York.

For several days since the death of Neely, New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been stoking the flames of racial tension. She accused the men who restrained Neely, preventing him from attacking straphangers, of murder.

"This honestly feels like a new low: not being able to clearly condemn a public murder because the victim was of a social status some would deem 'too low' to care about. The last sentence is especially rich from an admin trying to cut the very services that could have helped him."

"Despite what Fox News wants you to believe, being afraid of an unarmed person is not a reason to kill them. We should never accept a society where such rationale becomes normal. Especially when powerful incentives exist in politics + media to keep people afraid of each other," she wrote.

"Neely’s last words were literally about how going to jail was easier than accessing the social safety net support to get back on his feet and lead a life. Yet leaders want to raise his record as if that warrants a public execution on the subway? What have we come to?" She said.

In April, a woman was brutally beaten on the subway platform near JFK Airport. Elizabeth Gomes was traumatized, and left nearly blind in one eye. She blasted AOC for her insistence on police defunding.

"We are now at a point where officially, most officers are paid more than a teacher with a master's degree serving these same kids involved in these same incidents," AOC had said during an appearance on The Daily Show. "We are defunding safety, defunding our public schools, defunding our public pools, defunding our parks, defunding our libraries."

Gomes could not find police to help her as she was mercilessly beaten on the subway platform, just as those riders who were trapped with Neely on a subway car as it traveled between stations had no authority to turn to other than their own.
