Salon owner sentenced to jail for remaining open during pandemic

A Texas salon owner was sentenced to seven days in jail after refusing to shut down despite social-distancing restrictions. The court held Salon À la Mode owner Shelley Luther in criminal and civil contempt for refusing to comply with a restraining order. Reacting to this, Rep. Crenshaw said it was ’NOT just’ adding that ’Small-minded ’leaders’ across the country have become drunk with power’.

She should sue the state and the police department she had every right under the 10th amendment to disobey unconstitional laws.

This is America, we have a constitution which is the highest law in our country, the lock down orders violate them making them an illegal law. Under the 10th Amendment you have the right to disobey any laws that are Unconstitutional. Just because a law violates your rights doesn't mean that the governing force won't come after you, think of blacks during civil rights. But it is her Job to stand her ground and she should sue the state and the police department.

Its so hard to disagree with her while idiots across the water in UK like Neil Ferguson at Imperial College London, publish inaccurate predictions that caused a draconian lockdown in that country when subsequently he is forced to resign for breaking his own social distancing rules. How badly wrong are the scientists that stampeded the herd? Could this be no more deadly in total loss of life than influenza? Data from Germany, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea suggest very different and much lower mortality rates than first thought when higher levels of testing capture more infected cases.

This is absurd! If a business owner wants to take the risk of remaining open they should be allowed to, not arrested.

SUE SUE SUE all the way to the Supreme Court. This is absolute insanity by these mayors and governors. 99% I'm on the police side but this past month they've been making me quite nauseous. They swear to up hold the Constitution the day they become an officer and only a very few small handful have stood against anti constitutional rules. Most just want a paycheck and it's scary how far they will follow orders or stand up ty o these tyrants. They are the front line to prevent the Boogaloo

I'm amazed at how many people think because a store is open that everyone within a ten mile radius will die.

Of course it's Dallas, home of the KKK. Welp, I think that Dallas may soon play host to every armed Texan if they can't get their sh!t straight.

As a Texan, some context: Both the Governor's office and the Lt. Governor have spoken out against this ruling. The Lt. Governor has even offered to take the burden of both the fine and jail time so that mother could be with her family on mother's day. I know many Texans are watching this with keen eyes. We've been waiting for those would-be tyrants to tip their hands. Generally, we like to handle things politely, and the fact the heads of the state executive branch are speaking against this gives me hope that this can be handled without bloodshed. Still, this is not being taken lightly, and many of us feel like it's only a matter of time before someone does something stupid. And when that happens, the Texan people will not rest until liberty is the rule of the land once again. I have already reached out to my representatives, and I highly encourage all Texans to make your opinions on all this known to your State and local reps as well. The Texas Government tends to be pretty receptive to it's people.
