Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner that defied the tyrants of Dallas County, Texas and a judge that sentenced her to 7 days in jail and fined her $7,000 has been set free, and what should follow is a major lawsuit against Dallas County, as well as the removal from the bench of the judge in the case. She also took in $500,000 from GoFundMe donations, which is a pretty good payoff from her taking a stand.

Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge has the story:

Texas salon owner Shelley Luther has been ordered to be released by the state Supreme Court after a she stood up to a judge who called her “selfish” for keeping her business open during the statewide coronavirus lockdown, before sentencing her to seven days in jail.

Before sentencing the 46-year-old Luther, Judge Eric V. Moyé of 14th Civil District Court in Dallas County said she acted selfishly when she resumed operations, and demanded that she apologize to elected officials whose orders she disobeyed. Moyé, who must moonlight as an epidemiologist, said that citizens must obey orders until a vaccine is found.

“Failure to do so will only have catastrophic consequences,” he said, adding “and those reach far beyond the exigencies of one family or one business.”

Luther pushed back, saying in the now-viral video: “I have to disagree with you, sir, when you say that I’m selfish, because feeding my kids is not selfish,” adding “So, sir, if you think the law’s more important than kids getting fed, then please go ahead with your decision. But I am not going to shut the salon.”

In response, Governor Greg Abbott – whose order Luther violated, and TX Attorney General Ken Paxton said the sentence was excessive and called for her immediate release.

Meanwhile, a GoFundMe account established for Luther has raised over $500,000, and new donations are no longer being accepted.

This is how you win the day!  Notice the people backed her.  They literally put their money where their mouths were.

On the other hand, the politicians simply gave lip service, even though they did so supportively.

Well done, Ms. Luther!  I’m sure there are many others you have inspired to stand against tyranny!
