Posted on 10/27/2011 5:17:15 PM PDT by worst-case scenario
Federal officials are investigating a wave of hair-cutting attacks by members of the Amish community in Ohio, CNN reports.
FBI spokeswoman Vicki Anderson confirmed to CNN that the FBI is investigating the attacks, which led to the arrest of five members of the Bergholz clan, a breakaway Amish gang.
According to officials, in a series of six incidents, members of the clan would break into the homes of mainstream Amish, and cut off their hair and beards, which are symbols of faith in the Amish community. The men were charged with aggravated burglary and kidnapping.
The Bergholz clan is headed by Sam Mullet, who is also the father of three of the five men who were arrested. Mullet is known for being a harsh ruler, and has been accused of running his clan like a cult. The attacks were reportedly a retaliation by his followers for his excommunication.
I hear they give a mean wedgie as well.

50 guys getting together to put a barn up in one day...
Hell, that’s gotta be organized crime...lol
You mean instead of ‘drive-by shootings’ they have ‘drive by shearings’?
So the F.B. frigging I. needs to get involved in this goat rope, eh? Must have been ordered away from investigating muslime terrorists by holder and zero.
Paging Harrison Ford...
I don't think you want to mess around with these dudes ... check out the hights.
If he was ex-communicated, then he’s not Amish.
Must have defected to Islam.
It’s the Oompa Loompa wing of the Hard Line Amish Brigade.
You’re reading it wrong, I think. Then numbers represent inches. None of them are over 5’9.
I don't know what to say.
I recognize Doc, Scraggly, Bashful, Grumpy, Crazy, Testy, Stubby and Sleepy.
NBA material.....lanky-wise as well as rapsheet-wise.
The `Born To Raise Corn’ Gang.
Perhaps they can be called the Hat Hair Gang.
Sounds like the Amish were right to excommunicate.
“The Bergholz clan is headed by Sam Mullet”
Now THAT I lol’ed at.
The Bergholz clan is headed by Sam Mullet

Interesting site. Thanks,
Yet all of them seem profoundly *anti*-mullet. Just take a look at them.
