Kid Rock is one of the top donors in the defense of 24-year-old Marine veteran Daniel Penny, who was arraigned Friday morning on charges of second-degree manslaughter after he restrained a mentally unstable man on an NYC subway.

On May 1, former Marine Penny put homeless man Jordan Neely, who had a record of 40 prior arrests including violent attacks, in a chokehold after he was verbally threatening and intimidating passengers on the F train in Manhattan.

After being released from the chokehold, first responders were unable to revive Neely and he ultimately passed away, and Penny is now being charged with second-degree manslaughter.

On May 12, Penny surrendered himself to the NYPD and faces up to 15 years in prison.

Many are accusing the Soros-funded Manhattan DA, Alvin Bragg, of caving to political pressure and allowing his left-wing political bias to determine how he prosecutes the case.

A GiveSendGo fundraiser that was set up to help pay for Penny’s legal defense fund has already surpassed $2 million.

Accompanying his donation of $5,000, Kid Rock wrote a message that said, “Mr. Penny is a hero. Alvin Bragg is a POS. Kid Rock”.

A representative for the musician confirmed that the donation did, in fact, come from him.

While Kid Rock made a major contribution to Penny’s defense fund, a few others donated even larger sums of money.

American entrepreneur and 2024 Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy, 37, donated a whopping $10,000 to Penny’s legal fund.

In response to a tweet from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) encouraging people to “show this Marine America’s got his back,” Ramaswamy wrote, “I agree with this. Just donated. More of us should. We must restore the rule of law in America.”

Podcast host Tim Pool, however, is the top donor to this cause so far, donating an incredible $20,000.

He addressed this major donation on his social media, tweeting:

“I just donated $20,000 to Daniel Penny’s Defense fund

Penny is the Subway Good Samaritan and we are lucky to have brave souls like him who are willing to do the right thing

I will elaborate on my positon in my morning segment at 10am”

Pool added,

“[I] had previously held what [I] now view as a defeatist position on the issue

several people made good arguments to me about fighting the culture war to win and winning in the cities.

Theres a lot more I talk about on youtube and can talk about more tonight on timcast IRL”
