It doesnt 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 couldnt feed my family and my stylists couldnt feed their families Ms. Shelly Luther testified. The court didnt 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, Luthers 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.

Please let us return to sanity in Texas.
This is what happens when good men do nothing. Texas men used to have courage...but I guess that was when they came from Tennessee.
Covid ComDem Insanity!
Each state needs to storm the bastille and let the chips fall where they may
We refuse to control real criminals (thats the anarchy) so we control the innocent (thats the tyranny).
Anarcho-Tyranny. We have been trending that way for a while, but this virus response has really made it pop into sight.
Now you go to jail for insisting on going to work to feed your family. Criminals otoh are getting out of jail. They can steal $700+ in Dallas and nothing is done. Thank you Democrat Clay Jenkins and co-hort Obama judge.
Yet Abbott will alloe salons and barbes to open Friday
.i think it is a slam to this judge
Meanwhile, how many murderers and rapists have they let out?
Once again, Texas leads California!—
— 1-0, in the number of business owners jailed for violating the shelter-in-place edicts of the state Fuehrer
Too bad Texans are letting Texas fall. It was one of the last bastions of hope.
It is coming.
It got Californicated.
Fake News, allowed this insanity to happen.
ComDems, Globalists, and Leftist Insanity!

Its Texas for Gods sake. Storm the jail, drag the judge through the street.
Yep the judge is an idiot, playing to a ComDem audience.
Dallas Judge Jenkins is a far lefty.
He’s the same guy who went to the apartment of Ebola patients, a few years ago.
Dallas.....wake up and oust this hack!
There is something to the idea of The Lone Star State. Maybe we should revisit the decision.
