After a spate of violence in Atlanta last week, an Antifa activist arrested at the scene has emerged from a rather odd background.
Teresa Yue Shen was arrested along with six other far-left insurgents after they took part in anti-police riots spurred by the opening of Atlanta’s new Public Safety Training Center.
According to Daily MailShen traveled all the way from Brooklyn to attend demonstrations that turned violent after Georgia police shot and killed a protester who allegedly shot them.
After her arrest, she was charged with domestic terrorism and aggravated assault on an officer.

Diving into her background, it becomes clear that she grew up in a fairly privileged and respected upbringing.
Her father, James Shen, runs the Chinese publisher WiCON, based in New Jersey.
WiCON owns Pharma China and apparently has “connections” with many pharmaceutical industries in the People’s Republic, the Daily Mail reports.
He claims the company is proud to be a “family with generations of ties to the pharmaceutical industry in China” and described himself as a “strategist, consultant and publisher” with a keen insight into Chinese healthcare.

Shen’s mother, Xiao-Hua Shen, is also a successful businesswoman who was one of the first groups of Chinese nationals sent abroad by the CCP to study and graduate from Exeter University.
She describes herself as a “global diversity expert” who has an extensive knowledge of how to do “successful business in China”.
According to postmillennialisn’t this Shen’s first encounter with the law.
She was previously arrested while attending an anti-ICE event at the Bergen County Jail in New Jersey.
Prior to her Antifa activism, Shen did internships at Reuters and CNN before eventually becoming a mental health consultant.
The violence that landed Shen in prison had been a long time coming as far-left radicals protested the new Public Security Center since June last year.
Things came to a head when an activist opened fire on police trying to clear a campsite where protesters were hiding.
The suspected gunman, Manuel Esteban Paez Teran, seriously injured a Georgia State official and was subsequently shot dead.
Teran’s death sparked a “night of rage” last Friday in which Antifa operatives were encouraged to use “mutual violence” for their “fallen comrade,” according to the Daily Mail.
This latest violence in Georgia led to the arrests of five more Antifa members on Saturday, as reported by the Millennial.
During the cleanup that led to the shooting, police recovered many weapons, including shotguns, mortar-like firecrackers, multi-bladed weapons, gas masks and a blowtorch.
