Texas created a Wuhan virus martyr by imprisoning Shelley Luther

On Tuesday, Texas may have created the anti-lockdown movement’s first martyr when a Dallas judge sentenced hairstylist Shelley Luther to a week in prison for the crime of trying to provide for her own and her employee’s families.

Texas is home to 28,995,881 people. It’s had 32,879 diagnosed Wuhan virus cases (that is, 0.11% of the population got diagnosed) and 890 virus deaths (0.003% of the population). Most of the cases are linked to nursing homes or people with co-morbidities. Even in nursing homes, though, things needn’t be so dire. One doctor’s experiment shows that early intervention with the hydroxychloroquine cocktail can result in a 92% successful treatment rate.

Both the state of Texas and the county of Dallas declared hair stylists non-essential. The government – which is dependent on people’s taxes — ignored that for most people bringing a paycheck home is essential. Meanwhile, by April 15, Dallas had released 1,000 prisoners from the county jail. Because there were Wuhan virus cases among the prison population, some of the released prisoners probably brought the virus to the general population.
