Black Lives Matter Thug Jailed for Kicking Portland Man in the Head in Viral Video
Marquise Love convicted over viral attack on truck driver during Summer riots
A Black Lives Matter thug has been jailed for a brutal attack on a Portland truck driver during the Summer riots.
Marquise Love was arrested, charged, and convicted in court for kicking a man in the head from behind and knocking him out cold after repeatedly punching him amid rioting in the Oregon city in August.
The incident was captured on video and quickly went viral across social media.
As Neon Nettle previously reported, police responded to calls on August 16 about protesters in downtown Portland dragging a man out of his car and beating him after he crashed.
Videos of the incident went viral on social media, with one showing what appeared to have been the main suspect, Marquise Love, kicking another man in the head while he was on the ground - immediately knocking him unconscious.
According to PPB, when officers arrived, they found an adult man who was unconscious who was transported to a nearby hospital with "serious injuries."
Thankfully, Love has just been sentenced to 20 months in prison for the horrific attack, KOIN-TV reported.

Love received the sentence after pleading guilty to third-degree assault and felony riot as well undergoing "months of pretrial negotiations and a judicial settlement conference," the station said, citing the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office.
More from KOIN:
His guilty plea acknowledges that he caused physical injury to the victim, identified as Adam Haner, and that "he and others engaged in tumultuous and violent conduct and created a grave risk of causing public alarm."
The DA's office said Haner, as well as law enforcement, the court and the state, found the resolution in this case "appropriate."
Haner was not personally at the sentencing hearing on Monday, but has previously said in interviews with the media that he hoped Love would learn from what happened.
Love apologized to the victim in court, according to the DA's office, and reportedly expressed genuine remorse.
"The video of this assault is violent and shocking," Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt said in a statement, according to the station.
"It outraged our community and nation.
"We are fortunate that the victim's injuries were not as severe as it first appeared they may have been."
"In the days, weeks and months after this assault, detectives with the Portland Police Bureau worked quickly to identify the suspect and complete the investigation.
"This is a proper resolution. Marquise Love is accepting responsibility for his actions and the punishment."
After his time behind bars, Love will have to complete 36 months of probation, KOIN reported, adding that any violations could result in additional prison time.
He also must undergo an alcohol abuse evaluation and comply with any recommended treatment, the station said.
Portland police identified Love as the suspect seen in cellphone videos repeatedly punching a man who was forced by a mob to sit in the street after which the suspect kicked the victim in the head from behind and apparently knocked him out, according to The Blaze.
The beating began after the victim was trying to get away from violent protesters and crashed his truck — then a mob descended upon him.

Haner, recounting the incident to KPTV-TV, said he was yanked out of his vehicle and hit the ground, after which the mob "wouldn't let me get up" — and then the beating began.
"I was just standing for myself as a citizen," he told the station, "and if you can't do that on a street, then what can you do?"
