In the last few days it has become clear that the left is trying to turn Jordan Neely into the new George Floyd.
Over the weekend, protesters blocked tracks on the subway.
Then a ‘vigil’ was held, which of course turned violent, and police even found a Molotov Cocktail.

Jordan Neely: At least 11 protesters arrested, Molotov cocktail found
It was another night of unrest on New York City streets, as a Monday protest demanding justice for Jordan Neely ended in at least 11 arrests.
Demonstrations started out peacefully, as protesters returned to the Broadway-Lafayette station where the 30-year-old Neely lost his life, demanding justice and accountability.
But the situation quickly escalated, as the crowd spilled out into oncoming traffic and refused to stop, using a microphone system, even after being ordered by police to do so.
Protesters yet again clashed with police, resulting in several arrests.
“We cannot have people coming out to protest, at what we want to be a peaceful protest, bringing out dangerous substances like this,” Maddrey said. “As you can see, it’s a glass bottle with a liquid in there. We don’t know what the liquid is as of yet. It has not been tested.”
Police arrested 13 people Saturday night for fighting with officers, and are still seeking six others in connection with the protest that unfolded inside the Lexington Avenue/63rd Street subway station on the Upper East Side.
