Proud Boys Member Arrested, Charged With Six Felonies

The day after President Donald Trump told a far-right, neo-fascist group known as the Proud Boys to stand by and stand ready, one of its members was arrested in Portland, Oregon, on 12 charges.

Alan Swinney was arrested on multiple felony charges Wednesday, including assault and the unlawful use of a weapon. Additionally, Swinney was charged with the unlawful use of tear gas and menacing.

A September 11 indictment alleges Swimmey, a member of the Proud Boys, used a paintball gun August 15 and again on August 22 to cause physical injury to another person and, on the latter date, pointed a revolver at someone “which placed that person in fear of imminent serious physical injury.”

Video footage also shows Swinney pointing a gun at anti-racist protestors during a rally on August 22.

But Stewart didn’t give up. Instead, she collaborated with a statistician named George Kneale, who said his job, simply, was “to prove Dr. Stewart wrong.”  In her 2012 TED Talk, Margaret Heffernan
