Millions have a Penny for his actions in subway

Well it appears the first jury of his peers have voted him innocent.

A fundraiser for subway hero Daniel Penny neared the $2 million mark Sunday, with his attorneys saying donations have kept rolling.

The 24-year-old former Marine, who was charged with manslaughter in the death of homeless man Jordan Neely — had raised more than $1.8 million in donations by Sunday evening.

Penny’s attorneys, who launched the GiveSendGo campaign on his behalf did not use GoFundMe because that left-leaning service has a history of shutting down conservative fund raising efforts.

Penny was charged Friday with second-degree manslaughter for allegedly choking and killing Neely, 30, who had a long history of mental illness, during a May 1 subway ride on an F train in Manhattan. He was released on $100,000 bail.

The money raised by the GiveSendGo campaign will go to Penny’s defense team at Raiser & Kenniff, according to the page.

Any excess money will be donated to a mental health advocacy program in New York City.
