Come and Take It: Dallas Salon Owner Sentenced to 7 Days in Jail for Reopening, Watch What She Told the Judge

DALLAS, TX – A salon owner, Shelley Luther, in the Lone Star State was arrested and sentenced to seven days in jail for refusing to close down her shop. The judge in the case, patronizing Luther to the nth degree, offered her the chance to make an apology, admit that she was wrong and selfish, that she had seen the error of her ways, and she will close her salon. Then she might get a lighter sentence.

Luther’s response was pretty epic:

The local enforcement of lockdown orders has some local elected officials drunk on power, intent on a zero tolerance policy for those that dare question authority or are so audacious as to try to make a living despite government orders to cease and desist.

While most of us rightly see this as un-American, others are seemingly oblivious (or worse; accepting) to the injustices being done to citizens and business owners. This judge seems to take pleasure in scolding Luther for her offense against the collective. That offense was having the temerity to make a living for herself, keep employees paid, and put food on the table, despite the collective deeming her non-essential.

When Luther refuses the condescending offer from the judge, explaining why she will not abide by an order that asks her to starve in the name of public health hypotheticals, you can see the judge’s disappointment as he shakes his head. He finds it hard to believe that Luther won’t just submit.

Instead, Luther asserted she will not close her shop. Without uttering the actual words, she gave this unjust authority figure the most Texas answer ever: Come and take it.
