The trial of members of a breakaway Amish sect charged with hate crimes for cutting off the beards and hair of other Amish men and women is set to begin Monday in an Ohio court.The government revealed Friday that horse mane shears, along with hair samples, recorded jailhouse phone calls, and a camera they say was used to photograph the victims have been entered as evidence in the case.
I believe that those men have no right to violate those peoples rights. I think they should go to jail because the were breaking and entering someones home and thats against the law. I dont think they would give them allot of time if they do put them in jail but they cannot just let them off the hook that easy. Because if they do let them go, those people will keep doing what their doing.
Amish sect charged with hate crimes for cutting beards and hair of other Amish men and women. All of the 16 defendants are pleading guilty and some are asking for plea deals. I think that they should have to go to prison because the Amish men and women have the freedom of religion and those men disrespected it. Also, because they did not have he right to invade their privacy or break an entry.
The Amish is a group of people that believe in not cutting there hair and in god, they dont use electricity also. I think that the guys that went into the people house and cut there hair should go to jail because its in amendments 1 that says freedom of religion and in 4 that everyone has privacy.
In Ohio members of an Amish sect are being charged with hate crimes for cutting off other Amish hair and bered. They are being held in jail and trial is about to begin. They even have hair samples , but they are pleaing not guilty. But if they are found guilty they can face time in federal prison for violating the Matthew Shepard James Byrd Hate Crimes Prevention Act. I think that the people who did this should probably get a couple of months in prison or jail , depending on how it all happend.
The Amish should go to prison for hate crimes.They are violating the law .The first amendment states we have the freedom of religion and to the Amish their hair is part of their religion so its an offense.16 men were arrested for breaking in to other Amish persons house they cut of their hair and beard.They have violated yet another amendment the 4th which states that you shall not violate a persons privacy .The Amish went into peoples house to cut of their hair and beard.
Sixteen Amish men got arrested for breaking and entering someones house without permission.They cut the guys hair off,and in there religion there hair is suppose to be long,they can not cut it. I think the guys that did that should go to jail because that is just wrong,they shouldn't be walking in to some ones without permission.In the amendments it says that you we have freedom of speech and religion.
These amish people are being mistreated because they got there hair cut from other bias amish people.These Amish citizens are terrified because they have no where to be safe.There are 6 Amish are being charged with conspiracy kidnapping hate crimes and obstruction and a lot of people think they should be put in jail for their hanis crimes.So in the end these people should be able to live however they want without having fear for there lives.
They should put him in jail because he did a really bad thing that they should of not done but that did it an now they are a disgrace to them an now they dont know what they did so bad but we know an the people know that they should go to jail.
The Amish people should be put in jail, because they went against someones beliefs . The Amish people are haters/discrimination and should of have apologize to them and still be put in jail and should realize what they did was bad and shouldn't have done it .
"Victims will testify that the loss of their beards caused them great distress and embarrassment and altered their life activities to the point that they did not want to appear in public". I understand that the amish have the right to believe what ever they want but they dont have the right to cut of peoples hair. Six men were charged with varies crimes. You may not think that the amish's beliefe is important but they do.
I believe that the Amish people who cut the others hair off should be put in jail because that is invading their personal space and also because hair cuts are against their religion. The victims where females and although it doesn't seem like a serious thing to you, to the Amish this is a serious hate crime. No one deserves to have their religion disrespected like that.
