In a shocking incident, a high-ranking official of the Minnesota Democratic Party was brutally attacked and carjacked, shedding light on the escalating crime rates in the state.
According to reports from the New York Post, democrat official, Shivanthi Sathanandan, who once vowed to “dismantle” the Minneapolis Police Department, was beaten and bloodied in a carjacking outside her home this week. The Minnesota Democratic–Farmer–Labor Party official is now calling for tougher crime laws in the state.
“I have a broken leg, deep lacerations on my head, bruising, and cuts all over my body. And I have rage,” wrote Sathanandan, who said the beating occurred in front of her 4-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son around 7:45 p.m. Tuesday.
“These men knew what they were doing. I have NO DOUBT they have done this before. Yet they are still on OUR STREETS. Killing mothers. Giving babies psychological trauma that a lifetime of therapy cannot ease. With no hesitation and no remorse,” Sathanandan continued.
According to witnesses, the assailants confronted the victim on a serene street, armed and demanding her vehicle. A struggle ensued, resulting in severe injuries for the official, who was left bloodied and battered. The attackers swiftly fled the scene with the stolen car.
This incident has reignited the discussion on public safety and the consequences of anti-police sentiments. Critics argue that such attacks serve as evidence that enhanced law enforcement measures are necessary to protect communities.
As the investigation into this violent carjacking continues, policymakers face mounting pressure to reassess their stance on public safety measures. The incident serves as a reminder that the safety and security of residents should remain a top priority, requiring a comprehensive and inclusive approach that supports law enforcement while addressing underlying issues contributing to crime.
