A manhunt has been launched for Black Liveas Matter member 25-year-old Marquise Love (a.k.a. “Keese Love”) after a video of him went viral where he is seen kicking a White male in the head, leaving the victim unconscious.

Adam Haner, publicly identified by his girlfriend, was left hospitalized with severe injuries, leading users from 4chan to identify the attacker as Marquise Love. Portland Police have confirmed Love is the person responsible for the brutal head-kick that sent Haner to the hospital but are also actively searching for other militant Black Lives Matter protester also involved in the assault of the victim.

Although the video has a “graphic warning” placed over it, it still has been viewed 4 million times.

Photographs of Love have been released online, including ones where Love sports a Black Lives Matter T-shirt. Love is allegedly a member of a Black Lives Matter “security” detail that has been involved in violent encounters during the months-long protests in downtown Portland. In the video with Haner, Love is seen wearing a vest that say “security” on it.

Some Twitter users point out that mainstream media coverage will try to intentionally ignore Love’s ties to the Black Lives Matter movement.

The Portland Police Bureau (PPB) indicates that Haner tried to intervene to help a trans woman who was being harassed and assaulted by Black Lives Matter supporters.

Although Black Lives Matter and Antifa supporters initially accused the man of trying to run over them as they were blocking the road, both the Portland police and widely circulated video evidence refute their accusations.

A video of the initial encounter shows Haner intervening to defend a trans woman who is being accosted by Black Lives Matter supporters, one of which tackles the woman to the ground. Haner is then seen racing away from the scene in his truck after the crowd surrounds him.

In the video, Haner crashes down the road, prompting the mob to chase behind him whooping with glee.

A video of the second location then shows Haner’s pickup truck crashed on the curb while the mob of Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioters begin beating the victim who sits passively on the street. The attackers punched the man repeatedly.

Once they stop beating Haner, and he is left sitting defenseless on the street, a suspect believed to be Love runs up to him and violently kicks him in the head, leading Haner’s head to strike the asphalt, rendering him unconscious with a bloody gash in the back of his head.

“The Portland Police Bureau is taking this assault and other incidents of violence extremely seriously,” commented Chief of Police Chuck Lovell on the incident.

Portland’s liberal government has so far failed to control the Black Lives Matter protests, which routinely feature violent encounters. Mike Schmidt, the Multnomah County District Attorney, is being now criticized for introducing a new policy that keeps prosecutors for bringing charges in “minor offenses” related to the protests, which many say is a policy that encourages civil unrest that has failed to stop despite the Trump Administration withdrawing federal agents from the city.

“The actions depicted in these videos are universally rejected as wrong — and the actions are illegal,” Schmidt told local news station KOIN. “Assaults and other violent crimes will be prosecuted when the evidence supports such action.”

The Washington Post claimed in late July that “calm” had returned to the Portland after agents withdrew. Nightly violent protests and brutal beatings such as Haner’s appear to contradict the paper’s claims.

While The Washington Post has published two articles on the assault of Haner, the national news media has largely ignored the case, which has become a startling trend in many high-profile cases.
