FLASHBACK: Obama-Loving Judge Who Sentenced Dallas Salon Owner to Jail Once Pulled a Gun During a Road Rage Incident

Dallas county Judge Eric Moyé, who sentenced Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther to a week in jail earlier this week, once pulled out his gun on a driver during a road rage incident in 2016.

Moyé flashed the gun allegedly due to paranoia, claiming that it was because of a supposed connection between a murder investigation and a case he was overseeing at the time. The individual who Moyé flashed the gun toward had allegedly been tailgating him.

A woman posted a picture of Moyé’s Mercedes-Benz on Facebook as she was attempting to figure out who pulled the gun on her car. She claimed that the individual “pulled a gun on her on the Tollway” and that Dallas police told her they “can’t do anything about it.” Moyé said that the woman’s description of events were “not accurate” and “taken out of context.”

Moyé’s story was that he succumbed to paranoia and brandished the gun because a vehicle behind him was “within feet” of his car for “several miles.” He apparently felt that this made it okay for him to flash the gun and establish dominance on the roadway. Moyé benefited from judicial privilege and was apparently never punished for this threatening display.

Moyé’s decision to throw the salon owner in jail was invalidated by the Texas Supreme Court on Thursday after the governor and attorney general spoke out against his Draconian sentencing of the woman:

After the governor and attorney general intervened on her behalf, Dallas, Tex. salon owner Shelley Luther will be freed from jail per an order from the state supreme court.

Tex. Governor Greg Abbott and Attorney General Ken Paxton sprung into action after Luther was sentenced to a week in jail by an Obama-crony judge for opening her salon against government edicts.

“I find it outrageous and out of touch that during this national pandemic, a judge, in a county that actually released hardened criminals for fear of contracting COVID-19, would jail a mother for operating her hair salon in an attempt to put food on her family’s table,” Paxton said.

“The trial judge did not need to lock up Shelley Luther. His order is a shameful abuse of judicial discretion, which seems like another political stunt in Dallas. He should release Ms. Luther immediately,” he added.

“Compliance with executive orders during this pandemic is important to ensure public safety,” Abbott said in a statement on Wednesday. “However, surely there are less restrictive means to achieving that goal than jailing a Texas mother.”

“Throwing Texans in jail who have had their businesses shut down through no fault of their own is nonsensical, and I will not allow it to happen,” Abbott explained. “That is why I am modifying my executive orders to ensure confinement is not a punishment for violating an order.”

Contrary to what his crony Obama may have told him, Moyé is learning that he is not above the law just because he wears a robe and sits on a bench. Texas officials should look into the possibility of filing gun charges against this unstable Democrat.
