An internal investigation of the Metropolitan Police Department has reportedly found the beating of an unconscious Trump supporter by an officer during the Jan. 6 Capitol riot to be "objectively reasonable."

The probe was conducted by the Washington, D.C., police force's Bureau of Internal Affairs and concluded Rosanne Boyland of Kennesaw, Ga., was already unconscious when an officer struck her with a steel baton and a large wooden stick during the chaos that occurred on January 6, 2021, according to a report from the Epoch Times.

Video of the incident shows Boyland, 34, was trapped under a pile of protesters who were attempting to flee the West Terrace tunnel at the U.S. Capitol when law enforcement deployed gas to control the crowd.

Witnesses to the scene say Boyland fell unconscious after being crushed under the weight of other protesters and for a time stopped breathing.

Video footage reportedly taken after Boyland fell unconscious shows D.C. Metro Police Officer Lila Morris beating Boyland with a steel baton and what appeared to be a wooden walking stick.

Morris can be seen on bodycam footage picking up either a walking stick or tree branch, raising the object over her head and striking Boyland several times in quick succession before being pulled back by other officers.

Boyland's friend, Justin Winchell, who had traveled with her to the capital that day, cried out for police and protesters to help.

"She’s gonna die! She’s gonna die!" Winchell pleaded. "I need somebody! She’s dead!"
