Capitol Police: Beating Of Unconscious Trump Supporter Who Died ‘Objectively Reasonable’

It almost seems that the Capitol Police have been given the right to murder Trump supporters with zero consequences.  On Wednesday, the Epoch Times reported that the beating of Rosanne Boyland, an unconscious Trump supporter who was at the Capitol on January 6 and was later found to be dead, was ruled to be “objectively reasonable” by an internal investigation.

According to the report:

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.

Writing at the Gateway Pundit, Jim Hoft noted:  “It is now clear — If you are a Capitol Police Officer you can kill Trump supporters at will. You will be excused.”

It sure seems that way.  Keep in mind this is the same Capitol Police that shot and killed Ashli Babbitt in cold blood, and is the same force that has been illegally spying on Republican members of Congress, members of their staff and visitors.

Morris, Hoft added, was cheered by the liberal media.

“They’re making it open season on Trump supporters and they all support this,” Hoft added.  “God protect us from these demons!”

Indeed.
