Two Proud Boys Sentenced To Four Years In NYC Brawl

The New York Times reports:

Two members of the far-right Proud Boys were each sentenced to four years in prison on Tuesday by a State Supreme Court judge in Manhattan who criticized their participation in a “political street fight” last year on the Upper East Side.

The defendants, Maxwell Hare and John Kinsman, were among ten men who prosecutors said attacked four people protesting a speech at the Metropolitan Republican Club by the Proud Boys founder, Gavin McInnes.

The masked protesters, who did not cooperate with the police, were believed to be self-described anti-fascists. In the sentencing, Justice Mark Dwyer said the punishment was meant in part to deter others who seek to turn political differences into partisan street brawls.
