Sam Mullet, the leader of the breakaway Bergholz, Ohio “Amish” clan who is behind bars in Youngstown for orchestrating the “beard cutting” attacks in 2011, has apparently offered to install electricity in his home to accommodate an electronic monitoring device. Read the latest from The Smoking Gun here. I will try to get more information on this in the coming days using my sources in the area. I just find it ironic that someone who allegedly orchestrated these attacks to “protect the purity of the church” is now willing to embrace something generally anathema to the Amish in the form of electricity. The article I am linking to does have Mullet’s mugshot. I remember on the old website I posted mug shots of some Amish defendants in the Kentucky orange triangle cases. This is a different situation, in my view. Mullet has been photographed in pose positions by the Associated Press, so he obviously doesn’t have the objection to photography that many Amish have. And given the nature of this case, I just think posting a mugshot is not insensitive.
