    HELP THE CHILDREN! – 3

        Thank you to “Maffimuk” from the LancTalk.com forum for the photo (click here to read the comments and click the link to read Lancaster Newspaper‘s article, “Judge: Sex offender violated probation“). These comments in:

    Let’s break this down:
    Man is convicted of sex offenses and placed on probation.
    Man is not listed on any sex offenders list.
    Man is ordered not to have contact with children.
    Man moves to relatives farm where there are seven kids.
    Man is arrested with his zipper down while five year old runs away from him.
    Man is taken to court and judge decides that the best thing to do is to extend his probation and that he spend that probation in his home which is a trailer fifty feet from the children’s home.
    Parents of children say he poses no threat despite the fact he is re-offending with the five year old boy.
    He goes back to the farm for a longer probation period making it almost a guarantee that this man will be there longer and the longer he is there he is bound to re-offend.
    And in the meantime, two men are jailed in the Lancaster county prison on a 100,000 bail because they were caught stealing cardboard.
    In Lancaster, cardboard is more precious than children in the eyes of the court.

    This has little to do with children. This has to do with the two-tier justice system in Lancaster County. Maybe 3-tier.
    One standard for Joe Average.
    One standard for the Amish-Mennonite-religious (or faux or pseudo)
    One standard for minorities.
    If this guy was from Green Street? You get the picture, right?

    Please check back later today.

    1. Just wondering….Are there names and addresses that go with the mugshots??? It would be helpful to know; maybe my grandkids live nearby some of these guys.

    2. Every one of them have beards.They are married and personally have kids.What a damn shame.I also bet their right back at home with kids.

    3. The mugshots in that photo are of the ‘beard cutters’ who are a part of an extreme Amish sect that lives in another state. NONE of those men live in Lancaster county or in Pennsylvania.

    4. PS. In Ohio. Here is a story with the mugshots photo that explains:

    5. Wow Becky, sorry you got bad info.oh well I’ve spent almost two days working on the lewis martin story.Today I just needed a break.went to lunch with my oldest daughter, hugged my grandkids.and went shoppin.I really needed a break… so no harm no foul, the martin story was making me crazy. Calling people that has a job to protect children. And every place let those seven children down. Nothing like do your job by doing nothing, They made it seem like it was to much trouble. The prosecutor never even returned my call.

    6. Thanks to huh? for clarification. We have 8 grandkids in Lanc. Co, and these kind of stories are extremely distressing.

    7. @huh – actually, that link is incorrect. I remember this photo circulating the news all fall. It’s of the “Amish 8.” They refused to put orange triangles on their buggies:

      As a side note, it doesn’t look like mufimuk was claiming that these eight had anything to do with the case of zipper down perv. It seemed more like a tongue in cheek post. But that’s just me.

    8. Here’s another article: http://nation.foxnews.com/amish/2011/09/15/8-awesome-amish-mugshots

      Thank you, FWIW! EXACTLY RIGHT!

    10. I stand corrected… but I did know that these men were not arrested for child molestation. Just mixed up my metaphorical Amish mugshots.

      I knew that Becky was aiming at humor but then other people posted and assumed that these men were somehow related to the Lancaster story. My intent was to set your minds at ease.
