Crowds of people gathered at the Broadway-Lafayette subway station in New York on Wednesday to protest after the death of a homeless black man who was apparently having a mental health episode on a train. According to police officials, Jordan Neely had been harassing passengers on the subway and uttering threats when a former US Marine held him in a headlock for minutes. By the time the train reached Broadway-Lafayette, Neely was no longer conscious. Images shared on social media showed Neely on the ground with a man’s arm around his neck. A second man held her arms and a third held her shoulder. Neely’s death has sparked outrage over the treatment of the homeless and the mental health crisis in New York City. The man who put the headlock on him has been released without charge while police investigation continues.
