Proud Boy Convicted Of Assaulting Left-Wing Counterprotesters

(Portland, OR) -- A Multnomah County jury has found a self-proclaimed Proud Boy guilty of assaulting demonstrators protesting for racial justice. The jury convicted 51-year-old Alan Swinney of Texas on eleven of the 12 charges against him yesterday after less than three hours of deliberation. Court documents say Swinney attended two demonstrations in August of 2020 armed with guns, bear mace, a knife and body armor. He then assaulted left-wing counterprotesters with paintballs and bear Mace and pulled a loaded revolver on some of them. One of his victims was shot in the face with a paintball gun. The prosecutor said in Swinney's mind, he came to Portland to fight terrorists when in fact there was only one terrorist, and it was Alan Swinney. A sentencing date has not yet been set.
