We first saw it happen in Texas with Shelley Luther when she was arrested by the police for reopening her business.
Luther ultimately won and set an example for all Americans. She was released from jail after the Governor issued that no violations of the orders be worthy of arrest.
It's already happening again, but this time in Salem, OR. Lindsey Graham (no, not Senator Lindsey Graham) is the owner of a salon in Oregon. She opened her doors "too early" and has since been fined, threatened with even larger fines.
But that wasn't even the worst part of it all, they even threatened to take her kids away from her. And all because of what? Trying to make sure her and her independent contractors could earn a living?
Here's what she said about the threat to take away her children:
“And, if you can possibly believe this, on May 7th, Child Protective Services showed up at my home,” she said, while fighting tears.
“They questioned my husband and I. They questioned my child, without me present, they searched our home and I’ve never expected such a violent, aggressive, vindictive thing ever could have been done to me or my family because I’m trying to earn a living, because I’m trying to work.”
"As far as I'm aware the case is open and they are still insisting that they want to talk to my three-year-old daughter,” she continued. “So, I don’t know if they’re going to try to talk to my eight-week-old newborn. We’ll see. But they did check his diaper.”
Graham referred to the CPS investigation and their concerns as “completely random, unmerited, unwarranted and unprovable.”
“So it was a completely false claim and if they don’t pursue a false claim and there are actually children out there that are being abused by their families, then they’re wasting their time investigating me because Kate Brown doesn’t like me, that’s pretty devastating,” Graham said.
“This is a false claim that wasted CPS’ valuable time when there are children who are really in need.”

As Albert Maysles once said, “Tyranny is the deliberate removal of nuance.” Believe it or not, you can want the economy to open back up, but still care about the lives of older people.
