(SNews) – Fox News contributor Sean Duffy has shone a bright light on Al Sharpton’s grift and accused the far-left activist of raising money off of Jordan Neely’s death.
Duffy dropped the hammer after Sharpton delivered the eulogy at Neely’s funeral on Friday.
Sharpton is continuing to push the false narrative that Neely was “executed” on the New York City Subway by a “vigilante.”
Neely died after threatening passengers on the Subway, forcing bystanders to restrain him until the police arrived.
An eyewitness, a woman of color, has come forward to say that Marine Daniel Penny, the man accused of killing Neely, acted in self-defense and everyone in the car feared for their lives.
She described Penny as a “hero” who protected others from a violent threat.
Sharpton didn’t mention her in his heavily politicized eulogy, however.
“Where in the hell is Al Sharpton to go, ‘You know what, there’s a whole bunch of Jordan Neely’s on the subways and on the streets of New York. You know what? I’m going to go and save one of them. I’m going to go to the streets and help someone out.’
“He just is going to go to the funeral and he’ll give a speech, but he does nothing to help the people that are just like Jordan Neely.
“He just raises cash off Jordan Neely,” Duffy said.
“And by the way, we live by laws.
“We should enforce our laws and use our court system to determine these cases as opposed to just judging people by race.”
During his eulogy, Sharpton said: “We shouldn’t not celebrate Jordan’s life, but we should not forget how he died.
“We’re not here because of natural causes.
“A good Samaritan helps those in trouble, they don’t choke them out.
“Jordan was not annoying anyone on the train.
“Jordan was screaming for help.
“We keep criminalizing people with mental illness.
“They don’t need abuse, they need help.”
Correct and that burden, fairly or unfairly, falls on the family.
But Jordan’s family had no idea what he was up to or where he was.
One of Neely’s aunts gave an interview with ABC and revealed that his family didn’t know what he was doing with his life.
“So did anyone in the…Do you think in the immediate family had a sense of where his life was, where he was both physically and mentally in the last year or two of his life?” asked Byron Pitts, ABC News.
“Not to my knowledge,” said Midlred E.J.B. Mahazu, Neely’s aunt.
“I wouldn’t consider Jordan being homeless.
“Jordan just liked to be out,” she claimed.
“He had a grandma and a grandpa here.
“He had aunts. He had uncles, right here.
“He just didn’t want to be tied up, I guess.
“He’d do what he wanted to do concerning that, so we couldn’t make him.”
“So he, his choice was to live on the street?” Pitts asked.
“I assume he did,” Mahazu said.
“Jordan was not annoying someone on the train; Jordan was screaming for help. We keep criminalizing people with mental illness … They don’t need abuse, they need help.”

The eyewitness, who described herself as a woman of color, said Penny is a hero.
She said: “It was self-defense, and I believe in my heart that he saved a lot of people that day that could have gotten hurt.
“I’m sitting on a train reading my book, and, all of a sudden, I hear someone spewing this rhetoric.
“He said, ‘I don’t care if I have to kill an F, I will. I’ll go to jail, I’ll take a bullet.’
“I’m looking at where we are in the tube, in the sardine can, and I’m like, ‘OK, we’re in between stations. There’s nowhere we can go.’
“The people on that train, we were scared.
“We were scared for our lives.”
The witness said Penny only stepped in to take the deranged ex-con down when Neely started using words like “kill” and “bullet.”
“Why in the world would you take a bullet? Why?
“You don’t take a bullet because you’ve snatched something from somebody’s hand.
“You take a bullet for violence.
“Mr. Penny cared for people.
“That’s what he did.
“That is his crime.
“Nobody wants to kill anybody.
“Mr. Penny didn’t want to kill that man.
“You should have seen the way Mr. Penny looked.
“He was distraught,” she said.
“He was very, very, very visibly distressed. And he didn’t go.
“He didn’t run. He stayed.”
