Yes, Ohio has quite a presence within the Amish world. But these are the outcast Amish with ties to the original Lancaster County, Pa. Amish. The rebels. The gangstas, if you will. So it came as no surprise to us that a wild gang of beard-cutting bros was on the loose in Holmes County. But rest easy, Ohio Amish, the Mullet Brothers are behind bars thanks to an all-points bulletin to be on the lookout for scissor-wielding crazy bastards.

Via the AP:

The leader of a breakaway Amish group said an attack on fellow Amish in which a man’s beard was cut off was a religious issue stemming from long-standing resentment of his group’s treatment.

Sam Mullet, 66, said the goal was to send a message to Amish in Holmes County, Ohio, that they should be ashamed of themselves for the way they were treating Mullet and his community.

His two sons Johnny Mullet, 38, and Lester Mullet, 26, were arrested with another man, Levi Miller, 53,  last week for the alleged role in crimes by ‘The Bergholz Clan.’

The Mullet family just wants to be left alone but locals are calling them a cult. One thing leads to another and Amish get unleashed. It happens to the best of ‘em.

The attacks occurred over the past month in the heart of Ohio’s Amish population, one of the largest in the United States.

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.’

Guys, seriously, porn will solve all these issues. Sounds like you guys are all built up. Find a release. Kill a cow, eat Taco Bell, watch the Browns game. Something.

Let’s cool this **** right now. Ohio jails don’t need crazy Amish cutting beards. All hell will break loose.
