Jailed Michigan Restaurant Owner Set Free After Being Forced to Close Her Pizzeria Business and Pay a $15,000 Fine

A pizza business owner was released from jail after paying a $15,000 fine and closing her restaurant.

What happened to the freedoms of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? 

The Mlive website reported Tuesday:

A judge has released Marlena Pavlos-Hackney from jail after she paid a $15,000 fine and closed her restaurant, Marlena’s Bistro & Pizzeria.

Pavlos-Hackey, 55, left the Ingham County Jail around 2 p.m. Tuesday, March 23, her attorney, Robert Baker, confirmed.

He said she had complied with a judge’s order and deserved to be released. She has been jailed since Friday, March 19. She was arrested that morning, presumably on her way to work…

…She was jailed after she ignored orders to close her restaurant, Marlena’s Bistro & Pizzeria, after the state in November banned indoor dining in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

She also did not require the use of mask or social distancing to slow the spread.

Fortunately, Pavlos-Hackey has a GoFundMe page where she has raised $253,000 of a $300,000 goal as of Tuesday.

The insane policies in Michigan seem to have been for naught as the state has one of the highest China Coronavirus rates in the nation.  The Detroit Free Press shared this morning:

Michigan now has the second highest COVID-19 case rate per capita in the U.S., the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Wednesday — the same day state health officials announced 4,454 new coronavirus cases, the biggest daily total this year.

It comes as the Michigan Health and Hospital Association sounded alarms Wednesday that the state’s hospitals are filling up with COVID-19 patients — marking a 633% rise in hospitalizations since March 1 among people ages 30-39 and an 800% increase among those 40-49 years old.

Of course, the number of reported new cases means nothing as we have learned over the past year as corrupted medical institutions like the CDC began bastardizing results and reports as soon as the China coronavirus landed in the US.  In addition, not a single case of the China coronavirus was tied to Marlena\’s Bistro and Pizzeria.

Recently, Michigan’s governor Whitmer turned down nearly $350 million dollars in COVID Testing Funds because acceptance would have placed a limit on her emergency powers.  Whitmer chose to have the dictatorial powers rather than the money to help Michiganians.

Like many other states, Michigan is run by a Democrat tyrant who was wrong and abusive in response to the China coronavirus.  This chapter in US history is a very dark one.
