Tony Spell - Pastor Will Get Away With Outrageous Conduct

Pastor Tony Spell should be thrown in jail for brazenly and outrageously violating a judge's stay-at-home order and conducting his Sunday service -- actually, his stay-at-home order is really house arrest -- but he's not going to jail.

As we showed you, Spell showed up and falsely claimed his congregations were practicing social distancing -- in fact, the video clearly shows the congregants were packed in. Spell also displayed his ankle bracelet as an act of defiance to the judge who ordered him to wear it after getting arrested for allegedly trying to run over a protester.

Now, here's what's really shocking. The judge could have cited Spell for contempt of court and changed his mailing address to the county jail, but he didn't do that. The judge is worried that Spell might infect the prisoners who are currently in jail, so Tony gets a pass.

The judge wrote, "in consideration of the involuntary population at the parish prison ... to avoid the exposure of this captive population to the defendant [Spell]; instead of his remand to jail until an indefinite date, the conditions previously set on his bond will remain the same."

1. So, when governors of states issue orders, everyone can ignore them

completely and the courts will give everyone a pass? Nope. Just right wingers and religious nuts. They get to do whatever they want. No laws or anything anyone in government ever says applies to them ever. It sure seems that way. They get away with everything. The rest of us get the harshest punishments for looking at anyone in government the slightest bit too long or what they deem to be in the wrong way. Got it.

2. In this case, the judge is right. Spell is likely to be infected.

Bring that into jail? Is there responsibility to other prisoners?
