Could be worse I understand the victims are terrified, at least they are not taking the shears to other hair growing regions. As interesting as this story is, it would go viral if the ladder happened.

The second article mentioned kidnapping... Did I miss something?

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

They forced a 74 yr. old man out of his home against his will. That may be the source of the kidnapping charge. It's a renegade group. In the articles, it mentions they were known to the police because one of them had been charged with sexual contact with a minor, though it doesn't say which one. Very unusual for the Amish. This group had been shunned by the community and this is their revenge I guess.

even the break away amish dont have an inside toilet, and as for cutting a 13 year old girls hair.....men and women do not touch...at all, unless married.

Amish commandos... nah... but if the gang is captured they probably should be sent to gitmo for awhile just to scare the detainees.  Just sayin' :innocent:

Yes, I know it's funny, but seriously folks they're terrorising families by breaking into homes in a gang of 20 or more and one victim mentioned is a young girl who had her hair cut off, how odd :hmm: and just plain rotten.

I have to admit, the article has shocked me.. Because from my understanding, the Amish do not engage in any violence or attacks...  I like the Amish, I have  7 hour long documentaries that educates you on their every day lives and I find the Amish very peaceful and interesting folks... Actually I could live like them..IF they allowed TV and computers  lol.. other than that I like them .......

But this is odd... It is like an off shoot Amish gang acting out of character..... like  the  WBC would compared to other Christians ......

I agree BM with you and others who have said so - totally out of character, clearly the extreme right wingnuts of the bunch.
