A top official in Minneapolis who has campaigned for the defunding of the police just had a "come to Jesus" moment.
Shivanthi Sathanandan, the 2nd Vice Chairwoman for the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, posted on Facebook how she had been assaulted and beaten during a carjacking, reported Breitbart.
According to Sathanandan, she was carjacked by four men, "all carrying guns," reported Fox News.
Sathanandan explained that the attack happened right outside her home, in front of her children in broad daylight.
In her posting, she included a picture of herself after the attack, with blood running down her face.
Let me say something, though... I have had my share of bloody injuries, and never did the blood look that thin or red after the fact. It almost looks like stage blood that is on her face, but hey, maybe I am crazy.
She explained her injuries as a "broken leg, deep lacerations on my head, bruising and cuts" around her body.
In her post, which you can see in full below, she wrote, "I'm now part of the statistics. I wasn't silent when I fought these men to save my life and my babies, and I won't be silent now. We need to get illegal guns off of our streets, catch these young people who are running wild creating chaos across our city and HOLD THEM IN CUSTODY AND PROSECUTE THEM. PERIOD."
She is now taking quite a different tone than she took in June 2020 during the summer of rioting in this country.
At the time, she posted, "We are going to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department. Say it with me. DISMANTLE. The. Minneapolis. Police. Department. As allies, what can we do right now? LISTEN and LEARN from our Black siblings. And then AMPLIFY this message right now, in this moment. MPD has systematically failed the Black Community, they have failed ALL OF US. It's time to build a new infrastructure that works for ALL communities. If you are still disagreeing with that BASIC FACT, I'm not sure what to say to you."
She had also applauded Minneapolis Police Officers being removed from local schools, saying that police "have no place in our schools."
Now that she has been attacked, it would be nice to get a formal comment from her about defunding the police, but, of course, her office has not returned attempts for a public comment on this.
