True story from the associated press today, Nov 23, 2011

-----------

Seven Amish men have been charged with hate crimes for cutting the beards and hair of Amish men in a different religious sect.

The men, all family members of bishop Samuel Mullet, Sr., allegedly forcibly restrained multiple Amish men and cut their beards and hair with scissors and battery powered clippers, injuring the men and others who tried to stop the attacks, according to a statement by the Department of Justice.

-----------

The Amish fighting the Amish? They are supposed to be the passivist's passivist.

It's no holds barred in the US now {:soso_e120:}

sorry the link doesnt work, but can I ask why? Why would they cut their beards off? Is it like shaming an amish person to cut off their beard or something?

Yes.  It is like shaming.  Their beards are like a right of passage from boyhood to adult.  All married adult men are required to have beards.  So basically they took away their symbol of manhood.  So very insulting to the amish.
