FBI nabs suspects in Amish Beard Attacks. One of them is named "Mullet."

FBI agents arrested seven Ohio Amish men yesterday in Pennsylvania. They are accused of participating in a series of "beard-cutting attacks."

Samuel Mullet, the leader of an offshoot group who reportedly ordered the bizarre attacks on other Amish men, was taken into custody along with his sons Johnny Mullet, Lester Mullet, and Daniel Mullet. Also arrested were Levi Miller, Eli Miller and Emanuel Schrock.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has more:

Armed with 8-inch scissors, the group would arrive at the homes of Amish families in rural Ohio after dark and attack the men inside, holding them down as they sheared their beards and left them emasculated and humiliated.

The Amish, whose beards carry religious significance, told federal authorities it was an assault worse than being beaten. The attackers told their victims it was religious punishment.

On Wednesday, the U.S. Attorney's office labeled the attacks hate crimes and announced it would federally prosecute Sam Mullet, a former member of the mainstream Amish who formed a breakaway sect, and six others from his group.

  1. “who formed a breakaway sect”

    so he formed a breakaway sect from the main sect In my sect^^^^religion breathing is considered hate crime , dear U.S. Attorney’s office please get on it asap.

  2. Grew a mustache and a mullet
    Got a job at Chick-Fil-A
    Citing artistic differences
    The band broke up in May
    And in June reformed without me
    And they got a different name
    I nuked another Grandma’s Apple Pie
    And hung my head in shame…

  3. The beatings and sex part make it more than just silly drive by shavings. Oh but lets just emphasize how emasculated some patriarchs  felt about their facial hair going poof; pride is more important than exploitation.

  4. It’s really not funny per se but when you read about head shavings and the main perpetrator is named Mullet it conjures images of amish men with shaved sides and long in the back. Even if that’s what they did it’d still be crime against the law and good taste.

  5.  Boy howdy those comments really are funny! Let drive through some Jew neighborhoods and throw pork guts at ’em and pull off those little beanies they wear. Big fun! I hate religion it’s so hateful and closed minded unlike us at BB. Let’s shave the beards off those stoopid Mooslems too while were at it and pull the face veils off their women too. Religion is just ignorance and it’s okay to poke some fun at assholes that believe that shit.

  6. Bullet Tooth Tony: Comfortable, Mullet? It seems sadly ironic that it’s that tie that’s got you into this pickle. Now you just take all the time you want.
