YOUNGSTOWN - Three accused members of a group of Amish men who conducted a series of hair-cutting attacks on members of different Amish communities, including one man who investigators claim confessed to leading the September attack on a Mesopotamia family, were ordered Friday to be held without bail.

Eli M. Miller, 53, and Levi F. Miller, 32, both of Bergholtz, and Lester S. Mullet, 26, of Hammondsville, the son of the group's alleged leader Samuel Mullet Sr., all waived preliminary and detention hearings Friday morning before U.S. Northern District Magistrate George J. Limbert.

Limbert ruled that all three men be held without bail and that the cases could be presented to a federal grand jury that could charge the trio and four other men with committing hate crimes - a charge that carries a maximum sentence of life in prison. More...

I agree .....what's with the life sentence for cutting hair. Lets use a little common sense here. Why call this is a "Hate" crime? I'd say they saved them 10 or 12 dollars for a haircut.

AS USUAL THE GOVERMENT BLOWS THINGS WAY OUT OF PROPORTION. THEY SPEND MILLIONS OF DOLLARS FOR THE COURT SYSTEM AND THEN PRISON FOR SOMETHING SO IDIOTIC.WHILE MURDERERS, RAPIST AND CHILD MOLESTERS GET A SLAP ON THE HAND.

It doesnt say they got life. It states that life is the maximum sentence that could be doled out. Hate crime is a terrible thing

Its a hate crime because they are hating those that are leaving the amish community, which i believe are called Menonite after they leave the amish community? So they are hating on a group of people with different beliefs.

So they should be punished as such.

Also it did say "Maximum is life". It said no where in there that it would be maximum, and they could end up with only 5-10 years in jail.

If I attacked people on the street and cut their hair I'd be looking at time for assault but being a hate crime too doesn't help their cause any. If a person sells drugs to consenting adults they get sentenced like murderers too but few people seem to mind.
