“I am pleased the suspect in this case turned himself in and appreciate all of the efforts to facilitate this safe resolution,” said Chief Chuck Lovell. “Thank you to all of the members of the public who have provided information and tips to our investigators. Your assistance is very much appreciated.”
The victim Adam Haner had stopped to help a transgender woman who was being harassed by the BLM and who allegedly had a backpack and other property stolen. After he came to her defense, the BLM members then turned their attention to him and to his girlfriend whom they also attacked but not as badly.
Haner was seriously injured after being beaten by multiple BLM members. But the worse part was when the suspect Marquise Love allegedly kicked him in the head, leaving him unconscious.
He’s now out of the hospital but has three broken ribs, bruising and two black eyes. Doctors are concerned that he may have long term vision damage as a result. His brother started a GoFundMe for him.
Here’s a Fox interview with him before they arrested Love and noting Love’s prior history as well as his effort to reportedly solicit money.
BLM folks tried to lie about Haner saying that he was trying to run people over. The videos show that wasn’t true.
Thinking with three felonies and a lot of video evidence that Love is going to be facing some serious time.
