On the run from the Portland police, Marquise ‘Keese’ Love posted on Snapchat attempting to justify his actions and asking people to send him money. Earlier in the day, Love had been identified as the man seen kicking truck driver Adam Haner in the head in a viral video from the ongoing riots in Portland, Oregon.
The post read: “Might go to jail for murder tonight for a racist when all I did was fight him look it up on twitter put money on my books and come see me.”
The night of the attack, Love locked his Facebook account after it was leaked on 4chan by someone who recognized him from the video of the brutal assault.
Haner was in his truck when he observed Black Lives Matter rioters attacking and robbing a trans-woman. He attempted to intervene, and his vehicle was immediately attacked by the rioters. They began beating on his truck, kicking it, and threatening him.
Haner realized that the situation was escalating, and attempted to drive off, with rioters still attacking his truck and chasing after him. He panicked and tried to run a red light, and instead crashed his truck.
Rioters began throwing objects at the truck, and pulled him out of the vehicle. A large mob then attacked Haner, kicking him in the head while others restrained him. Love seemed to be leading the mob, and can be seen throughout the video joining in the assault.
Haner was unconscious at the end of the video and was transported to the hospital in serious condition.
