I didn't realize beard cutting was such a widespread problem in the Amish communities.  Good to see that they've got the sentencing down pat.

This actually needs a follow up tag, it's old news. I think they just finally did the sentencing.

It took a while for sentencing. The judge had to Mullet over.

FTA, "The judge said the defendants had violated the constitutional rights protecting religious practice that had also benefited them as Amish. "

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

What a moran.

They're master carpenters. Barbers, not so much.

Also FTA:
Amish believe the Bible instructs women to let their hair grow long and men to grow beards once they marry. Cutting it would be shameful and offensive.

If long hair is in their religious beliefs, how is forcefully cutting it off not a violation of their constitutional right to practice their religion?

Also, there are few groups who are more protected under the freedom of religion clause.

/Yes, it's worded awkwardly.

"The government had asked for a life sentence for Mullet, while the defense asked for two years or less."


A life sentence seems just for what he did, oh, wait a minute, NO it farking doesn't, and neither does 15 g'damn years.

What the fark are thinking with this shiat?

Waste more tax dollars please.

I read they sent a SWAT team out to the 800-acre compound to make sure they wouldn't end up facing another Waco.

My question is this: When the SWAT team entered the house, did they deploy shun grenades?

It's a limitation on government action. Did the government limit rights?

On a positive note.  This asshat will now be confined with people who aren't quite as pacifistic as the folks that he has been bullying.  So, there is some justice (and perhaps a god).

Let's see what the government's position on religous freedoms is when the prison trys to make them shave their beards which are part of their recognized religion.

Did you hear about the Amish woman who had a husband and a lover? She did it with two Mennonite!

So you think a fitting punishment for shaving someone is an ass raping? Perhaps with these whacky people it should have been a punishment that fit the crime. Perhaps he should have been shaved and forced to shave for a few years and also raise a few barns for those he shaved.

Yes what he did was wrong. Yes he should learn a lesson from this. 15 years is farking nuts for this. He would have been better off shooting the people he felt slandered his name or their horses.

No kidding.

Misdemeanor assault, 6 months suspended, $50 fine and court costs would have been appropriate.  ANYTHING involving prison time is excessive, since NOBODY WAS HURT.

That's right, this guy got 15 years for a crime where no one was injured, nothing was stolen, and there wasn't actually any danger created.  The judge and prosecutor should spend the 15 years in prison instead.

I'd settle for 15 seconds at the end of a long rope.

Petitioning for LIFE, let alone ruling for a fifteen year sentence for what that guy did is straight up evil.

That would make a lot more sense if it wasnt a group of 27 people forcing their ways into people houses and beating them up before shaving them. But sure. He should have been beaten with a rolled up newspaper once or twice and been called "bad". Im sure that would have stopped it.
