Daniel Penny is a warrior who, with the assistance of other subway riders, subdued a violent criminal whose rap sheet included:
Kidnapping a 7 year old
Punching a 64 year old man.
Kicking a 67 year old woman.

The man Penny subdued had over 44 arrests. He was such a menace that people on the left wing website Reddit posted a thread about him over 9 years ago.
Try to stay away from the Michael Jackson impersonator if you see him...
Used to be all cool, dancing to MJ in the subway train, but as of late he's become a maniac.
Sometime in late Spring/early Summer I saw him in the train, his radio fucked up and he was angry as fuck, cursing and bad mouthing commuters screaming "What the fuck are you looking at? Dont fucking look at me!" Totally didn't expect him to act as such. Ever since that day he's just been a scary dude to me.
He doesn't dress up anymore. No more dancing...just asks for money. Occasionally shouting obscenities.
Today, however was odd. Sometime in the morning, on my way to school I'm sitting on the bench and out of nowhere hear someone just going off, cussing up a storm. It was the MJ dude. Everyone besides this guy was quite. A MTA crew was there but did nothing and just let him continue blow his gasket. Train arrives and I just get in the car he's not in because I'm sure as fuck not getting in the same car as him. Dude didn't even wait till he got inside the train. I was scared for the people next to him out of fear that some one was gonna fall on the tracks.
Just avoid the guy at all costs, try not to look at him at all. Stay safe.
Yes, that Reddit thread is authentic, and it was posted long before the current controversy. Confirm it yourself here.
Those are the facts. Here is what’s being reported.
According to every major media outlet, Jordan Neely was a kind hearted Michael Jackson impersonator. They are even posting old pictures of Neely to create a false narrative.
Everyone from the Governor of New YOrk to Congresswoman AOC is calling for Penny to be indicted.
I predicted this, and you called me a coward.
There are almost daily videos of groups of psychopaths harassing innocent people, frequently on the New York Subways. These videos invariably bring out this scream: WHERE ARE ALL THE REAL MEN AT?
The implication, of course, is that real men risk their lives (and if they have children, by proxy they risk their family’s livelihood) to intervene in cases where a psychopathic man harasses innocent passengers.
I’ve long said I wouldn’t do anything, and that you shouldn’t either. This Tweet from May 2022 got millions of views and tens-of-thousands of insults directed my way.
Twitter doesn’t let you embed tweets anymore, so you’ll have to trust me that most of the responses to me went like this:
Yes, I’m the coward! Even though I’ve gotten into a ring before, have actually trained, and know what I’m doing. My own daughter has trained Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for over two years, and I take her to every class. But yeah, I don’t know anything. Mike Cowardovich!
That’s how people think though.
Real men defend women, BUT NOT LIKE THAT!
These two tweets sum it up.
Real men defend women, but if something goes wrong, that same woman is going to send you to prison for the rest of your life.
People who have never trained are going to be the ones on the jury if you intervene. They are doing to determine if you held onto a choke “for too long.”
Everyone is a grappling expert now.
If you’ve done Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for a week, you know what’s meant by a “spazzy white belt.” You were one or you dealt with one.
When you put someone in a choke or other move, they don’t tap-tap like it’s a UFC match. They don’t know they are in peril. They don’t know how to submit. They keep flailing around.
Here is what I warned people of a year before the Daniel Penny incident.
People who have not trained (that’s 99.999%) have no idea. They are the same people who wonder why police don’t, “Just shoot the guy in the leg.”
Here is what many geniuses said to me back in 2022.
Daniel Penny held down Jordan Neely in a loose rear naked choke. Most white belts after 6 months could have escaped it. That didn’t matter. People who use drugs and maybe have blood clots from drug use can drop dead from even heavy exhaustion.
New York City elected a Soros Prosecutor. They want Crime.
New York City voters had a choice. Would they elect someone who would put and keep violent criminals in jail, or would they support someone who wanted to let criminals run wild?
Alvin Bragg Wants to Do Away With Prison Time for Most Crimes
Meet the new boss, very different from the old boss. The new Manhattan district attorney, Alvin Bragg, issued a set of guidelines to prosecutors on Tuesday that show he is serious about enacting the criminal-justice reforms he campaigned on.
America is two countries now.
Red states still have honor culture. If you start a fight, people fight back. If you lose, you lose.
In blue areas, a rioter who carried an AK-47 and flashed it at people got shot in self-defense.
The man who defended himself was today sentenced to 25 years.
If you take your red values into blue cities, you’re going to at best end up doxed, harassed, and financially ruined. Again, that’s if you’re lucky.
Reform prosecutor Alvin Bragg is going to bring the Daniel Penny case before a Grand Jury. (Criminal justice reform flows in one direction. Trump was indicted by Bragg for the same paperwork errors Hillary Clinton committed.
If you bring your red values to blue states, you have a martyr complex.
Jesus Christ died on the Cross so we don’t have to.
Before jeopardizing your life and your family’s future, ask if you’re willing to go away for the rest of your life to protect people who voted for what you’re about to try stopping.

Great article, Mike. And we can attest that you have indeed been talking about this for a while.
