Sean Strickland weighs in on Subway Viral Video ending in death

Mixed reactions have followed the viral video of a man being put in a submission for 15 minutes on a New York City subway, leading to his death.

30-year-old Jordan Neely was initially described as acting erratically but wasn’t armed. Sean Strickland, a controversial public figure, took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the incident.

Sean Strickland is known for never holding back his feelings on controversial topics, didn’t hesitate to weigh in on the issue.

Strickland wasn’t the only UFC star to weigh in on the incident. Prior to outcome of intervention being known, UFC featherweight reacted positively.

After he was informed about the outcome, he deleted the tweet.

UFC veteran Jake Shields also offered up a reaction.

Jordan Neely’s death was ruled a homicide. The marine man who put him in a submission was initially called a hero for potentially saving the subway passengers. However, the medical examiner’s report changed the narrative, leading to criticisms and backlash from the public.

A rally was held at the same station where the incident occurred, with one of the speakers addressing the issue of people taking the law into their own hands and lacking a compassionate approach towards mental health and homelessness.

The former marine has not been arrested or charged with a crime, raising questions about how such cases are processed by New York’s legal system and angering many left-leaning politicians and activists who have called the process racially biased.

The legal case is complex, and if the former marine is charged, he would likely argue that the force he used was justified.

Prosecutors would need to have interviewed every one of the many witnesses to the encounter in order to show in court that the former marine used force without having believed that Mr. Neely was also using deadly force or was about to.

Witnesses are being asked to come forward and help identify the individuals who can be interviewed.
