The beating of an unconscious Trump supporter by a DC Metropolitan Police Department officer on January 6 was deemed to be “objectively reasonable” after an investigation by the department’s Internal Affairs Bureau, The Epoch Times has learned.
The Internal Affairs investigation was opened in September 2021 based on a complaint filed by a Texas man who assembled video evidence of the officer striking an unconscious Rosanne Boyland with a steel baton and a large wooden stick at the entrance to the West Terrace tunnel at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.
Boyland, 34, of Kennesaw, Ga., was pinned under a pile of protesters who fled the tunnel when police deployed a crowd-control gas. After several minutes of being crushed by the weight of other fallen protesters, Boyland lost consciousness and stopped breathing, witnesses have said.
Boyland traveled to Washington D.C. that day to attend the “Stop the Steal” rally and hear then-President Donald Trump speak at the Ellipse. She became trapped in a crowd that sought entry to the Capitol through the West Terrace tunnel.
As Boyland lay unconscious on the ground DC Metro Police Officer Lila Morris repeatedly struck her with a steel baton and what appeared to be a wooden walking stick, according to a video recording.
The sudden attack horrified Boyland’s friend and traveling companion, Justin Winchell, who pleaded with police and protesters to provide first aid to Boyland. Police bodycam video shows Winchell’s shock when he saw Morris strike Boyland in the head.
“She’s gonna die! She’s gonna die! …I need somebody! She’s dead!” Winchell cried.
Boyland was not pronounced dead until more than 90 minutes later, although she appeared lifeless when police dragged her body from the West Terrace tunnel entrance into the Capitol at 4:31 p.m.
This is outrageous. If this was “objectively reasonable” so were Derek Chavin’s actions.

Pelosi Snaps at Reporter Asking About Abusing Power of Capitol Police, Spying on Republican Lawmakers (VIDEO)
A reporter asked Pelosi about Rep. Nehls’ allegations and Pelosi snapped.
“Don’t waste your time! I have no power over the Capitol Police! Does anybody not know that?!” Pelosi shouted.
Is pelosi spreading mis- dis- and mal-information?
The capital police report to the speaker of the house, Does anybody not know that?!”
So 2 police that killed people that day are black and not being prosecuted? I wonder if white police would have been given the same pass?
Maybe if Boyland was black and had eaten enough fentanyl to kill her three times over, the police would be held accountable.
