LANSING, Mich. -- Police ticketed seven people for cutting hair during a protest outside the Michigan Capitol, where about a dozen barbers and hair stylists defied stay-at-home orders to give free hair cuts Wednesday.

At one point, about 300 people attended the demonstration that was organized by the Michigan Conservative Coalition to oppose the measures imposed by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to curb the spread of the coronavirus. More than 5,000 residents have died from COVID-19 complications in the state.

 

Seven barbers or hairdressers were cited for disorderly conduct — engaging in an illegal occupation or business — after being warned by state police. The cases were referred to the state attorney general. The penalty is a misdemeanor punishable by up to 90 days in jail, a $500 fine, or both.

Whitmer's stay-home order requires the closure of nonessential businesses and places of public accommodation such as salons.

Angela Rigas, of Caledonia in western Michigan, said she was ticketed after refusing three times to stop cutting hair.

First thought this to be a bit

excessive but when I saw the pictures, saw it as nothing more than a bunch of deplorables being stupid......again. The fines are indeed well deserved.

Enjoy Rednecks...

Many people don't realize it, but we're extremely lucky that Trump is the President during this pandemic.
