AMISH IN THE NEWS
While somewhat on the topic of the Amish, I noted yesterday that Imir Williams was arrested again this week for violating a protection from abuse order (see yesterday’s post).
He first made international news in 2013 when he viciously assaulted his girlfriend and then Amish Mafia star, Esther Schmucker (click here for the Daily Mail article shown above and Schmucker is pictured to the right).
He assaulted her again in 2015, 2016 and 2017. A judge needs to take a serious look at this man. One – he should have done much more jail time for the 2013 beating and every incident after that.
I can not find a docket for his latest arrest but I will try to get more information on Monday when courts are open. If this man can’t learn a lesson then there is no choice but to keep him incarcerated.
WHAT WILL THE POLICE DO?
I watched the video of Mr. 17540 confronting a 25-year-old Amish man in the Brownstown Sheetz parking lot where he apparently intended to meet a 14-year-old girl and have sex with her in his buggy go viral overnight (click here). When someone linked to the video in the comments on this site yesterday, the video had about 12,000 views. This morning it is over 61,000.
While I don’t agree with many of Mr. 17540’s tactics, it will be interesting to see if the West Earl Township Police Department charges this guy because he never denies he wants to have sex with a 14-year-old and that’s why he came to the Sheetz.
According to commenters under the video, the Amish man has deleted his TikTok account where apparently he had over 50k followers. Wow. This is a whole new look at the Amish.
