Comment: I think there is much more than that

(See in situ)

I think there is much more than that

First of all, it's not a hate crime and thats how they were prosecuted, it was family members v family members.

So let me get this straight, if I shave my brothers head because I think he looks like a punk, it's a hate crime....please.

Second, even if it was a crime of some type, there is no way the crime fits the punishment.

Also, if the government can attack people and do this to them, the can attack any one of us for any reason.

Honestly this is absurd, and this should be retried with real lawyers willing to go to bat for protecting these Amish Constitutional rights. To say that beard cutting is hate crime is freaking crazy, beards and hair grow back, average hazing in Fraternities go way farther than this.
