You probably remember what happened to a Dallas-era mother when she tried to open her salon. A judge, friend to Obama, hit her with a huge fine and seven days in jail.
Texas leaders, including senators, representatives, and the governor voiced their outrage. The lt. governor even offered to pay the fine and serve the time in her place.
The issue was quickly taken to the State Supreme Court. And this is what they decided.
From Fox News:
The Texas Supreme Court on Thursday ordered the release of salon owner Shelley Luther, who was jailed for opening in violation of the state’s rules, as Gov. Greg Abbott issued an executive order retroactively eliminating jail time as a consequence for violating the state’s coronavirus restrictions.
Boom! This is what justice looks like. The Texas Supreme Court ordered the release of Shelley Luther.
This came right after the governor himself decided to eliminate jail time for anyone that violates the states’ lockdown rules.
That includes anyone who has been arrested, going back through April.
This is a huge win. We’ve watched as states went to great lengths to punish Americans during these lockdowns.
Citizens had to watch as their livelihoods dried up. Any attempts to get on with life as usual was met with shocking cruelty on the part of police, governors, and judges.
The lockdowns have been extended in many states. Those states that are opening up appear to be selectively choosing which businesses can or can’t reopen.
Is it right to let restaurants open at 25% capacity, but not salons? Should some Americans go back to work, but not others?
This ruling has a big impact on Texas, but it might set a precedent for other states. More judges might start to rule in favor of Americans who just want to go back to work.
Then again, some far-left judges might be trigger by this. They might even triple down on lockdown rules.
Perhaps it’s time for the president to just sign an order, forcing all America to open?
SHARE if you’re glad this Texas mom has been released.
