Over recent years, many local and national Democrats have called to “defund” police departments. Many blue cities answered that call, slashing police budgets. The result, of course, has been explosions in crime.
But one local Democrat went above and beyond others. She didn’t simply want money taken out of PD budgets. In one Facebook post, she called for the “dismantling” of police forces. It seems she wanted zero cops on the streets. Well, time changes many minds. And this leftist quickly learned how bad her idea was.
From Fox News:
Shivanthi Sathanandan, the 2nd Vice Chairwoman for the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, posted Wednesday on Facebook that she was “violently carjacked” by “four very young men, all carrying guns.” She said they assaulted her in front her children outside their home in broad daylight…
Though she thanked police officers for their response, at the height of the George Floyd riots in June 2020, Sathanandan wrote Facebook posts supporting efforts to “dismantle” the police.
The Second Vice Chairwoman for the Minnesota Democrat-Farmer-Labor Party, Shivanthi Sathanandan, detailed in a recent post how she was carjacked. According to her story, four young men, armed with guns, attacked her in front of her children outside their home.
She reportedly suffered a broken leg, deep lacerations on her head, and bruises and cuts. Sathanandan posted a photo of her blood-covered face. Shockingly, she lamented the “lack of accountability” against criminals in her community.
Uh… what? This was the very same leftists who, just a few years ago, wrote, “We are going to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department. Say it with me. DISMANTLE. The. Minneapolis. Police. Department.”
Hmm… I wonder if this sentiment led to this “lack of accountability” against crooks in Minneapolis?
In her last post, she called out these men (who might not have done what they did, had it not been for Democrats like her) and demanded that the police “HOLD THEM IN CUSTODY AND PROSECUTE THEM.”
It is unfortunate that this Democrat had to suffer an assault before she realized the importance of law and order. This kind of crime might not have happened, had she and others like her supported the MPD.
We wonder what she thought was going to happen when Minneapolis defunded the police? If she had her way and the police were dismantled, there would have been no one to help her, after this horrible crime.
Hopefully, the rest of this “defund” movement will learn from her mistake.
