Body Cams Confirm Capitol Police Beat an Unconscious Roseanne Boyland to Death

'I think that the first thing that occurred is an assault under the color of authority... That is a crime, an arrestable offense...'

(John RansomHeadline USA ) Body-camera footage from several different cameras shows a police officer beating Jan. 6 protester Rosanne Boyland in the body and head as she was unconscious.

The footage was obtained by the Epoch Times exclusively as they investigated the use of force against Boyland.

“I think that the first thing that occurred is an assault under the color of authority by [Officer Lila] Morris,” a use-of-force expert, Stanley Kephart, told the Epoch Times. “That is a crime, an arrestable offense.”

A report from Washington, D.C.’s Metro Police Department previously concluded that Boylan died of an overdose of the commonly prescribed ADHD drug Adderall.

But eyewitness accounts and video viewed privately by attorneys for other defendants led some to suspect that Boyland was, in fact, beaten to death near the entrance to the US Capitol.

“I believe two things were in operation here.” Kephart said, referring to the police treatment of Boyland.

“One was anger at this person,” she continued. “That was overridden by fear. And those two elements were the causal connection between what was done to the person by the officer and the result.”

The mainstream media has been quick to try to discredit evidence that contradicts the official report.

CNN, for example, published a “fact check” that parroted the DC medical examiner’s conclusions about Boylan’s death.

The Metro PD didn’t respond to the Epoch Times’s request for a comment before publication of the article, but after the article was published they sent a brief email:

“The matter involving Officer Morris was previously brought to our attention and reviewed thoroughly,” said the email. “This review included her body-worn camera footage, and did not substantiate the allegations you have outlined.”

Boylan’s family had hired outside experts who determined that she died from being her body being starved of oxygen, called manual asphyxia, reported the Washington Examiner.
