Kid Rock emerges as a top donor for Daniel Penny, a 24-year-old former marine and college student, after generously contributing $5,000 to “Daniel Penny’s Legal Defense Fund.” The fund has now exceeded an impressive $2.5 million, thanks to the support of notable figures. Vivek Ramaswamy contributed $10,000, while Tim Pool made a substantial donation of $20,000.

Daniel Penny faces second-degree manslaughter charges after restraining Jordan Neely with a chokehold. Numerous train passengers expressed gratitude towards Penny for his courageous actions, as Neely posed a threat by engaging in agressive behavior, throwing objects inside the train, and expressing indifference towards returning to jail.

Kid Rock shared a heartfelt message alongside his contribution, expressing:

“Mr. Penny is a hero. Alvin Bragg is a POS. Kid Rock.”

According to Breitbart News:

The GiveSendGo fundraiser had surged to $2,412,744 in donations as of Tuesday morning with the help of the musician, who gave $5,000 and a free character reference for Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg along the way.

Kid Rock, 52, whose given name is Robert Ritchie, wasn’t the only big-name donor, the Fox News report details.

Republican presidential candidate and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, 37, gifted $10,000 out of his own pocket.

The Ohio resident said Neely should have been behind bars or in a mental institution and “not free to terrorize his fellow citizens.”

“You have an abandonment of the rule of law,” he told Fox News Digital. “Then someone who tries to assist and protect people, based on the current facts we have … is now being prosecuted. That represents a perversion of how the system is supposed to work.”

The surpassing of an impressive $2.5 million in the defense fund has sparked anger among many individuals on the left. This remarkable sum was achieved with the help of influential figures like Vivek Ramaswamy, who generously donated $10,000. Penny’s courageous act of restraining Jordan Neely, who displayed aggressive behavior and posed a threat to fellow train passengers, has been met with gratitude from those present. The outpouring of support brings attention to a rising apprehension regarding the prosecution of individuals who intervene to protect others, leading to criticism of what is perceived as a disregard for the rule of law.
