Roseanne Boyland died on January 6th in 2021 after police rolled protesters over top of her, crushing her under their feet before a female police officer, whose name is not fit to print on these pages, beat her over and over again with s stick until the stick broke.
But, now, thanks to a leaked video, we know there is even more to the story than the heinous facts we already knew. Roseanne Boyland was not dead when she was dragged inside the Capitol by the Capitol police.
This is where the negligent homicide comes into play. The “absolute failure” of law enforcement officials and paramedics to administer basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation properly was a “guaranteed” death sentence, medical experts warn.
Metropolitan Police Department bodycam footage is now in the hands of the Gateway Pundit that makes the police and medical staff inside the Capitol look like three monkeys trying to make love to a football.
Once inside, a police officer can be heard saying, “She’s unconscious!” On January 6, as a group that included tactical officers from U.S. Park Police, MPD, and U.S. Capitol Police dragged Boyland feet-first to the Lower West Terrace from outside the tunnel where she was trampled, tear gassed, and beaten.
At 4:32 p.m., Officer Sarah Beaver is seen struggling to operate an AED to perform resuscitation procedures on. She didn’t even know how to turn on the power.
Officer Beaver asks her colleague while fidgeting with deliberator pads:
“Where is the thing at? How do you get it out? I don’t know how you do it.”
At Beaver and the tactical team scramble to activate the AED, they neglect to provide Boyland rescue breaths and repeatedly stopped chest compressions, aberrations of critical CPR protocol that doctors contend would render an alive patient brain dead.
Agonal respiration, shallow and intermittent breaths, are a sign that a person is near death and also indicate the brain is still alive, according to WebMD.
“She’s getting cold,” an officer declares. Moments later, the Park Police officer intubates, Boyland, inserting a breathing tube down her throat and connecting it to a resuscitation bag.
“Gross medical negligence” by police killed Boyland if she was not dead prior to the resuscitation effort, contend veteran emergency medicine specialists who examined footage capturing the rescue response.
The tactical team repeatedly stopped CPR compressions for more than 10-second lapses, a breach of basic protocol that renders a patient who had a chance to live “brain dead,” Dr. Ben Marble, who provided frontline care in the emergency room for over 20 years told TGP in an exclusive interview.
“It’s tragic really. This will be a great example in CPR classes going forward of everything not do — don’t do it like this,” the medical doctor explained. “Nobody is breathing for her, is the biggest problem I see here.
“They kept stopping CPR — they did not give any rescue breaths until at least five minutes into the video. — that’s brain-dead. If you don’t breathe for somebody, they are not getting oxygen to their brains. The whole point of CPR is to pump the blood, oxygenated blood to the body to keep circulation going to the organs and to the body and the brain. If your brain goes without oxygen for more than about four minutes, you’re brain-dead. That one move alone — not giving any breaths until five minutes after they began CPR, that basically was a dead patient at that point, just the lack of giving breaths,” he continued. “They kept stopping the chest compressions — you are not supposed to stop for more than 10 seconds. They were stopping for, like, half a minute at a time or even longer.”
While the officers wrestled with defibrillator pads, they may have been able to assure blood was circulating to Boyland’s brain and organs if they had prioritized chest compressions and provided her rescue breaths.
