Dallas Salon Owner Gets 7 Days In Jail For Reopening

Welcome to China, folks. You may now only operate your business if the government says you can. You can now only go to work to put food on the table for your kids if the government says it’s okay. If they’re hungry then you should have done a better job of voting for their candidate in 2016.

That seems to be the message being shouted about, loud and clear.

As Governor Greg Abbott (TX) said, in a press conference on Tuesday, salons and barbershops are set to reopen this Friday. A Dallas salon owner was sentenced to jail that same day for reopening the business on April 24 due to her employees needing to feed their kids.

Shelley Luther, a Dallas salon owner, was given a choice to: A) apologize for being ‘selfish’, pay a fine, and shut down her business, or B) go to jail.


She chose not to bend the knee and now she'll pay the price.

"I have to disagree with you, sir, when you say that I'm selfish because feeding my kids is not selfish," she told the judge. "I have hairstylists that are going hungry because they would rather feed their kids. So sir, 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."

She was then hauled off to serve her sentence. She was also given a $7,000 fine. I'm sure that's going to help her feed the kids.

This isn't just in the United States of America. This is in Texas, the state most known for sticking up for individual liberties and representing the flag of the U.S.

Congressman Dan Crenshaw, R-TX, weighed in on the matter, saying:

“These punishments are NOT just. They are not reasonable. Small-minded ‘leaders’ across the country have become drunk with power. This must end”

This is the most recent disgusting act of government overreach but stay tuned, I'm sure there'll be more yet this week.

  1. The Government now have their little armies of STORM TROOPERS ! You will submit to their ORDERS and RULES or be put in Jail by their Judicial Lackeys ! Where are our Constitutional Rights ? The Voting Citizens must put an end to this in quick fashion or the next thing to go will be Elections ! We must VOTE THEM OUT !
    When push comes to shove it is in our best interest to provide for our families and SCREW the GOVERNMENT !

    1. 74 never believed it would happen. Put in jail for wanting to work” so I can feed my kids.” Young Lady don’t give up, God will bless your courage . Obama coined it God, Bible, Family & Flag. All we want is to be left alone and we can take care of ourselves and anyone else who is willing to work. Liberal best remember its never worked anywhere.There are alot of us who have been silent until now.
      Press on!

  2. this Texas governor or what ever the piece OF
    SHIT CALLS IT’S SELF AND THE SHIT EATEN JUDGE should be sued into poverty.

    1. Abbott the government is willing to serve her time and pay her fine this was a nu black judge who was put on the bench by OBAMA km

  3. Patriots of America…Lock, Cock…and get ready to Rock, because until a few of these half-witted Liberal Judges are assassinated, and we take back this great Nation “by force” like the article says this is just the most “recent incident of Government over-reach” and things are about to get “serious. All BS aside, things are looking to get real ugly, real soon, if this type of insanity is permitted to go on, without something being done. Get ready to rumble, Liberals, cause your just about ready to get called on the “carpet” for all your shit-head non-sense!!!

  4. Now that she is in jail, they can set her free due to the covid along with the other criminals they put back out on the street because of coronavirus. STAND YOUR GROUND LADY. That judge has problems coming.

    1. Michael you are absolutely correct! If I had not heard this story on Fox News I would not have believed it! That judge needs to be fired!!

    2. I would care LESS if I read in the newspaper that “judge” Eric Moye CAUGHT the coronavirus with a terminal result. Good riddance! That judge is a total disgrace to the judiciary!

  5. These leaders have become Napoleons and Caesars with no regard for the well being of their constituents. As Mr. Spock once said “The needs of the many must outweigh the needs of the few”. This is a war and people are going to be wounded and even die for our country’s survival. This small business owner stood up and said “No”. She should be honored for her willing to stand up for her people. We have governors going far beyond their rights and power. Where the heck are our judiciary people now?

    1. Patrick Henry once said “Caesar had his Brutus, Charles the First his Cromwell, and George III should profit from their example..” The judiciary in the USA has completely SOLD OUT the American people…the wealthiest mouthpieces go before the courts and get their way every time, while the working peons like Ms. Luther get spat on by this pompous judge who already has an activist record….One wonders how the INTEGRITY of the third arm of the US government will survive when being devoured from inside by incompetent appointees…

  6. The biased, pompous jungle judge (Eric Moye) needs to be turned into the Texas legal ethics committee, looking toward revocation of his law license and permanent removal from the bench. The salon owner (Ms. Luther) needs to be released immediately, and hopefully she will find a means to file some lawsuits…

  7. At least Gov. Abbott had enough sense to order her immediate release, so I read any way. My wife had to close her salon also but fortunately she is the sole employee. She has also set up 6ft barriers and rules for bringing their dogs in and taking them back out. Anyone not following those rules will not get their dog groomed. I have been out and about enough to see that some people think these preautions don’t need to be followed but for now they do. I have my own feelings about this Kung Fu flu but that’s another story. People have to get back to work, businesses need to reopen and we need to get our economy moving forward again. I realize that some wannabe dictator tyrant governors have gone off the edge and need to be dealt with to get their people back to work. Fortunately Abbott is not one of them.

  8. this makes me sick to my stomach. Let the people get back to work and stop these hand outs to everyone. People want to work and take care of their families. I am 100% behind this mother. Jailing and fining her is so wrong. Is not this the USA? Politician power must be stopped.

  9. I agree as free Americans we should have the right to live our freedoms. Just like the right to load gasoline next to a fire when the fire department is trying to put it out!!!
