An individual detained at the Washington D.C. Jail in the wake of the January 6, 2021 U.S. Capitol protest was viciously raped at the hands of jail guards, according to Randy Ireland, a  U.S. Air Force veteran advocating for an end of inhumane treatment and torture of January 6th political prisoners. Ireland stated that the information about the alleged rape “was relayed to me from a very, very, very reliable source.”

Ireland stated that the detainee was raped in retalation for a complaint made by the detainee’s attorney to a DC Jail supervisor. The attorney complained that DC Jail guards were present during an earlier meeting between the detainee and the detainee’s attorney that was held at the jail, according to Ireland’s account. The jail guards’ presence at that meeting would have constituted a violation of attorney-client privilege.

Ireland made the statement during a January 6, 2022 interview on Caravan to Midnight, hosted by John B. Wells and carried by the Salem Radio Network. (Audio also available on Clouthub, time 2:40:23).

Ireland stated during his January 6, 2022 Caravan to Midnight interview:

One of the stories that has been relayed to me from a very, very, very reliable source. There is one gentleman who did have a visit with his lawyer. And while he was visited with his lawyer, the guards stayed in the room, which violates any kind of lawyer-client privilege.

So the lawyer asked for the supervisor. In this particular situation, the lawyer asked to speak with the supervisor.

Grudgingly, the guards went and got the supervisor. The supervisor came in, agreed with the lawyer, and everybody left. After all of that happened, and the guards went to bring this guy back to his cell, they retaliated against him because they were pissed off that the lawyer made them look bad, called the supervisor, whatever.

At that point…and overly aggressive. He fought back. Five of them subdued him and continued it. The way that I understand it, they then brought him into an adjoining room and in that room there were multiple guards, including a female guard who videotaped the whole thing on their cell phone.

And so, I believe that at that point in time, what was told to me, is he was viciously raped.

Absolutely, absolutely incredible that this would happen. And this was at the hands of guards.

Ireland also stated that, as of January 6, 2022, out of the 727 individuals arrested in the wake of the January 6, 2021 U.S. Capitol protest, 79 individuals have been indefinitely detained at various facilities, including 41 at the Washington D.C. Jail.
