Dallas County, Texas Salon Owner Jailed For COVID-19 Noncompliance Opened Business Now Incarcerated
The Conservative Treehouse | May 5, 2020 | sundance

It doesn’t come as a shock but it is ridiculous in the extreme. A Dallas County Texas salon owner has been sentenced to a week in jail for defying the order to keep her business closed. “I couldn’t feed my family and my stylists couldn’t feed their families” Ms. Shelly Luther testified. The court didn’t care.

The stakes are escalating daily as economic desperation takes over and the oppressive hand of the authoritarian government officials refuse to loosen their grip on their new found power over the population. Confrontation is likely to get much worse quickly.

TEXAS – A Dallas salon owner will spend a week in jail after she was found in contempt of court Tuesday for violating a court order to close her salon during the coronavirus pandemic.

In addition to the jail time, Shelley Luther was fined at least $3,500 for continuing to operate her business, Salon à la Mode, in violation of a temporary restraining order issued against the business.

Like other businesses deemed nonessential, Luther’s Far North Dallas salon was forced to close March 22 after Dallas County enacted its stay-at-home order.  She reopened the salon on April 24 despite that order, and tore up a cease-and-desist letter from Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins at a demonstration the following day.

[…] “I couldn’t feed my family and my stylists couldn’t feed their families,” Luther testified.   (read more)

Dallas County, Texas Salon Owner Jailed For COVID-19 Noncompliance – Opened Business Now Incarcerated

Question: Have hard core criminals been released in Texas, like Kalifornia and New Yawk, to prevent the little delicate things from getting the virus?

Who is the judge? We need pictures of the judge. Every citizen should turn their backs on this man every time he is seen outside the courtroom. He should be publicly shunned.

The "apology" is more important to the left than is the phony conviction. The "apology" is the personal recognition that the government was right, the citizen was wrong, and that everything the government did in the case was justified by the victim's own admission.

The "apology" was the most important goal of this evil, truly evil, Judge. Just listen to him.

The above was posted by another poster over at Gab.com in response to a similar article posted there on this very subject that I was a part of. Read the original post here:

What does California and Texas have in common? Might explain the decline.

They may fall on you. It’s all fun and games until you or your kids end up on ventilators.

Yes.

Lord Action was correct.

“Power corrupts and absolute power tends to corrupt absolutely.”

She’s not in jail. Brian Sundance the Gaslighter is lying.

She’s fined and will win this on an appeal never serving a day or pay a cent.

Our Republican elected leaders are every bit as responsible for this travesty as the DemRat judge who sentenced Shelley Luther. So far President Trump, VP Pence, Governor Abbott, Tx Attorney General Paxton, and US Attorney General Barr have been all talk (if they’ve even bothered to whimper her name) and ZERO action when it comes to stepping in and prosecuting these wannabe-tyrants.
We as Citizens may have to take up arms and put an end to this ourselves.

Agreed - perhaps a few dead wannabe-tyrants will end this.
