It's obviously a hate crime. It couldn't possibly be any clearer.

think of the logistics of cutting someone beard against their will and you will be comfortable.

it involves beating the shit out of them to hold them still while cutting it off.

With that said I think I understand. Unless drugged, which wouldn't be as bad but pretty damn bad.

Did he really beat the shit out of people to do it? But, yeah, I hadn't thought it about it like that. Still kinda weary.

And even if they just ran up to the victims with scissors and managed to cut of part of the beard or any other method*, it'd still be a pretty serious hate crime. Also, THE DUDE IS A FREAKING CULT LEADER.

*like maybe an anti-beard ray. Made of wood, of course. Don't want none of that English tomfoolery.

he had a group of people doing it under his command, the articles werent clear but it seems like they invaded their homes at night in order to cut them.

A rundown of what happened, according to the NYDN:

Prosecutors say Mullet and his followers forcibly cut women's hair and men's beards and hair using battery-powered clippers or scissors in five attacks between September and November. The Amish believe the Bible instructs them to grow their hair after marriage.

They also allegedly injured people who tried to protect or rescue the victims from the offensive attacks and then conspired to conceal evidence.

In addition to the widely reported assaults, prosecutors say that the men placed over-the-counter medication in one of the victim's drinks meant to sicken him.

"You have your laws on the road and the town — if somebody doesn't obey them, you punish them. But I'm not allowed to punish the church people?" Mullet said.

"I just let them run over me? If every family would just do as they pleased, what kind of church would we have?"


Quote
The victims, which included children as young as 13, were targeted by as many as 27 members of the gang.


Quote
Farmer’s wife Arlene Miller told how her husband Myron was dragged out of their bed by his beard, taken outside and assaulted.

She said: ‘The guys came up and surrounded him and cut off a chunk of his beard. They were unable to get any more because he struggled so hard against them.

'The [attackers] say this is to uncover sins, and it’s to straighten us out.’
