It’s hard to find any other interpretation of Gov. Kathy Hochul’s latest statement about the death of Jordan Neely; the mentally disturbed New York man who died after being placed in a chokehold by a Marine veteran on a NYC subway after allegedly threatening passengers. Hochul’s been taking heat from progressive activists for not immediately condemning the veteran and convicting him in the court of public opinion, as well as for her first statement after the incident, in which she vaguely spoke about “consequences for behavior”. It was unclear whether Hochul was talking about Neely or the veteran, but in her attempt to clarify her earlier remarks she also made it clear that she doesn’t think self-defense is ever justified.
Beyond clarifying that clause, in her remarks this morning, Governor Hochul goes on to answer the following questions, including issuing this condemnation: “It’s wrong. No one has the right to take the life of another person.” pic.twitter.com/l2y91acxdR
