After being severely attacked this week, a Minnesota far-left Party leader who reportedly pushed for cutting police budget during the George Floyd riots has apparently altered her mind.
The second vice chairwoman of the DFL, Shivanthi Sathanandan, uploaded a picture of her bloodied face following the attack on Tuesday, claiming that she was carjacked at her house with her kids inside.
“Four very young men, all carrying guns, beat me violently down to the ground in front of our kids,.The young men held our neighbors up at gunpoint when they ran over and tried to help me. All in broad daylight.” she wrote in a post on Facebook.
“Look at my face in the picture. This is the face of a mother who just had the s[***] beaten out of her. A mother whose only thought was, ‘let me run far enough and fight hard enough so that my kids have a chance to get away.’ This is the face of a mother who just listened to her four year old daughter screaming non-stop, her 7 year old son wailing for someone to come help because bad guys are murdering his Mama in the back yard, her neighbors screaming in outrage… all while being beaten with guns and kicks and fists.” she continued
“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 added later on in the same post.
The district attorney determines whether to submit the special purpose grand jury’s findings to a grand jury for criminal charges after receiving them instead of issuing indictments like a conventional grand jury would.
She claimed to have a shattered leg, severe head wounds, and bruises and cuts all over her body.
