As they fought with police over the murder of Jordan Neely this week, left-wing demonstrators in New York City reportedly leapt on the subway rails over the weekend, briefly stopping a portion of the subway system.
During the chaos at the Lexington Avenue and 63rd Street subway stop on the Upper East Side, at least seven people were detained.
Despite the fact that Neely’s death had nothing to do with the police, leftists attacked members of the New York City Police Department.
Around 6:15 p.m., dozens of protesters leaped onto the subway rails near Lexington Avenue and East 63rd Street, causing an approaching Q train to slam on the brakes at the tunnel’s entrance.
The activists were determined to keep obstructing transit service even after the police were finally able to pull them off the rails, enabling the train to arrive at the station.
As soon as cops started to leave the station, chaos broke out.
A small swarm of people rushed toward the fights as a few protesters got combative and started shoving towards the police.
