Glad to see the little pigfuxker will get some time off from being a pain in the ass to everyone else.

The dude has zero remorse. Would love to see him meet some folks with different opinions in prison.

Recruited in to a white power prison gang, and learning how to organize and emphasize race baiting in the street to enact his agenda?

The judge is just going to love the phone calls proving his lack of remorse at his sentencing hearing.

Eye for an eye. Let his victims shoot him in the face with paintball guns.

"I don't really have any feelings about it."

Sociopath says what?

Almost takes a guy's eyeball out and shoots a woman in the chest with paintballs, runs out of paintballs and switches to macing people until he runs out of mace before pulling an actual gun and pointing it at people?

But it's not assault?

It's only attempted assault?

I guess this is why IANAL cos that makes not too much sense to me.

Attempting to hit someone is Assault.. so I don't know what attempted assault would be.

Wiki: An assault is the act of inflicting physical harm or unwanted physical contact upon a person or, in some specific legal definitions, a threat or attempt to commit such an action.[1] It is both a crime and a tort and, therefore, may result in criminal prosecution, civil liability, or both. Generally, the common law definition is the same in criminal and tort law.

The nice thing about this is that after the criminal trial is over, the folks he shot can sue him into the poor(er) house. His finding out phase will be continuing for some time yet.

Shanked in the Laundry room. There are people in this world who live for the opportunity to commit violence upon other people. Such people need to be either permanently institutionalized, or shot. They cannot be civilized, nor are they capable of learning from the mistakes they make. When they're convinced that committing acts of violence on other people is not a mistake, then they are unfit to live in decent society.

Having paintballed many a time in my youth... if he's a good enough shot to hit the lenses in gas masks, he's good enough not to miss and shoot an entirely other person. Not buying that he didn't mean to peg that guy in the eye for a second.

"Not buying that he didn't mean to peg that guy in the eye for a second."

He'll, no! Not when the guy literally described the modus operandi -- the actual purpose for aiming for that area -- to render the ski-goggles useless so that they have to be removed -- so that the police tear gas can be more effective.

That little passage was kind of chilling.

If he gets more than six months I'll eat my hat. The Judges and prosecutors in every single one of these cases has bent over backwards to treat these assholes with kid gloves.

They all had that gallows energy, I say we give him what he wants - the gallows.

Tired of these farkers being sentenced out of context. 6 months, 4 months, etc. What the actual fark - they were on the senate floor with weapons. Multiple fatalities directly linked to their actions. We consider the context with hate crimes, but we're not considering the context of the actions of these animals with sedition? Makes no sense, ya'll.

Many states assault is the threat of violence and battery is actaully making physical contact.

In Florida shooting someone with a paintgun would be aggravated battery and wreckless launching of a missile (normally that one is for drunk college kids who throw beer bottles but covers paintballs).  Both would be felonies.  I know Portland is not Florida, but if even Florida considers your actions a felony, you should be screwed.

It'w all for show. There is no real discernible difference between the Republicans and the Democrats. They're both Corporatist organizations, taking their kickbacks campaign contributions from the same people, both pledging that they're "pro-business" and taking that to such an extreme that when someone points out that there are openly criminal organizations operating under the umbrella of Corporate Enterprise they both react in the same way, with the same criticisms, and instituting the same overall policies. Policies which do nothing but re-enforce the Corporatist paradigm.

All they've ever done for the last 40 years is just shuffled the words around in Laws that were originally written to enforce Corporate policies. Nothing ever changes, and they're certainly not going to do anything that would endanger their stock portfolios and Panamanian bank accounts. Profits, first, foremost, and always.

He spent the summer living in a tent in one of his unindicted co-conspirators' yards about 3 miles down the road from me because he's a drifter-grifter. See also: his linkedin -- actively searching for work since 2013, according to the profile. He was definitely unemployed while in Oregon.

Anyway, his victims can sue all they want, but if they get so much as a packet of ramen out of him it'll be a miracle.

"Too bad for him," Swinney said.

What a dickhead.

"Did she deserve to get shot with a paintball? Yeah," Swinney said in the recorded jail call. "Am I glad? Yeah."

He's all in on this dickhead thing.

Hooray.... I guess.
 
2021-10-06 10:15:41 AM  
At one point, Swinney testified that he threatened to mace people in an attempt to deescalate the street brawl...

Guys a f*cking lunatic.
 
2021-10-06 11:08:48 AM  
Vasquez then had Swinney read posts he made on the social media site Parler, where he said "we're literally fighting the militant left wing," and compared the fight with the Crusades and an ongoing civil war.

Because paintballing and macing civilians in the streets is just like fighting a war.
 
2021-10-06 11:44:08 AM  
"I know these rallies are going to come out and be attacked," Swinney said, explaining why he wore padding, a helmet, and came armed with a paintball gun, mace and a pistol to a rally almost 1,500 miles from his home. "I'm also not going to be terrorized in my own country."

Not YOUR country you pathetic little biatch.

Glenford: Great thread from Robert Evans, someone who covers the far-right and neo-nazi movement. Evans had his hand broken by Swinney at a protest.

Robert Evans (The Only Robert Evans) on Twitter: "The funniest thing about the Alan Swinney story is that is the perfect example of a stupid man with one idea: Alan understood early on that some right winger was going to gun down protesters at an event and crowdfund a fortune off of it. He wanted to be that man." / Twitter


So he got upstaged by Rittenhouse, who was grifted out of his crowdfunding by a conservative lawyer.
