Welcome to the New Post-COVID America: Small Business Owner Jailed for Opening her Business

A Dallas salon owner is now in jail for violating an unconstitutional order to close her salon during the coronavirus pandemic. Shelley Luther, owner of Salon à la Mode in Dallas Texas, will spend the next week in jail and have to pay a 7,000 fine simply for trying to feed her family and help her employees stay above water.

Like so many small business owners, who tyrannical politicians have deemed non-essential, Luther was forced to close her business on March 22nd  after Dallas County enacted a stay-at-home order. She reopened her salon on April 24th and tore up a cease-and-desist letter from Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins at a demonstration the following day.

In a court hearing today, Luther said she had no choice but to open her business.

She said she hadn’t earned income since the county’s stay-at-home order was set in March. She applied for a federal loan aimed at helping small businesses, but didn’t receive the loan until Sunday, she testified.

“I couldn’t feed my family and my stylists couldn’t feed their families,” Luther testified, holding a phone to her face from the witness stand so the court reporter could hear her through a mask.

Before issuing his ruling, Moyé gave Luther an opportunity to “apologize” and promise not to reopen her salon until allowed to do so, saying he would consider levying only a fine “in lieu of the incarceration which you’ve demonstrated that you have so clearly earned.”

Luther, however, defended her actions to the very end.

“Feeding my kids is not selfish,” she told Moyé. “If you think the law is more important than kids getting fed, then please go ahead with your decision, but I am not going to shut the salon.”

They have declared War on Hard Working Americans and American Business Owners

At this point, it’s hard not to see this as anything but an all-out attack on not only our freedoms and liberties but on the small business owners who make this country great.

Not one of these bastard, authoritarian politicians has been able to tell the public how it’s somehow more dangerous to go and buy goods from a small business than one of the corporate overlords who have been deemed essential and have been allowed to operate throughout the COVID-19 Plandemic.

And to the stay-at-home useful idiots, who can’t stop screaming at people and turning in small business owners as they stand in line to be herded into Costco, how are you immune to catching the virus at a big box store?

Why can you stand in a Walmart with hundreds of people and buy a bunch of useless crap, but the small business next door is forced to close its doors?

None of this makes sense! They don’t care that frontline doctors are saying this virus is NOT as bad as we’ve been told, and that hospitals are laying-off healthcare workers left and right. They have pushed this propaganda so hard that 40% of the country now says they may not leave their houses even if the so-called pandemic ends!

America has turned into a de facto police state:

  1. Hmm, maybe if this Judge would have offered his income to this woman, who had no other options, she wouldn’t have had to open her salon?
    These people in “power” sure are without a clue, a heart of even a thought for their fellowman. They act like they are so great, but I would like to see them have to go without a paycheck for over 30 days and see how well they like it and think others who are going to work are so selfish.
    I think all the politicians should be made to give up their pay checks until our country is back to work, and allow them to see how the other half must live.

    • Good luck, they think themselves our overlords, and we their serfs, they forget their power comes from our consent. maybe its time we stop consenting and use the right granted us in the declaration of independence? as it’s obvious this government has become destructive of it’s ends for securing our liberty.

    • And? this judge still sentenced her, despite her necessity, and these loans will have to be repaid, how are they to do that if they can’t earn income? it’s back door confiscation for failure to repay of small business.

      only reason she was released is because the story did break and this judge probably got more then an earful of how the people would return the favor of gestapo boots on necks, only boots of we the people on Gestapo Necks if it continued.

      additionally this judge isn’t enforcing LAW, he is enforcing POLICY, this order never went through proper channels to become law and is therefore only for the sheep to follow, and only valid by threat of force from dumb order followers.

      Nuremberg 2.0 is coming. hope you have a better exscuse then “i was following orders”
