Remember these pranky hair cutting bullies?

CLEVELAND, March 29 (Reuters) - Federal prosecutors have expanded a hate crimes case against followers of Ohio Amish sect leader Samuel Mullet Sr., charging four more women with participating in a beard and hair-cutting attack last year.

In all, 16 members of the group including Mullet now face charges in attacks that officials said were intended to humiliate the victims.....

Different? Sure. These were widespread attacks by adults, and the victims were adults.

But I see similarities. Regardless of intention, these attacks and the attack by the Republican presidential candidate both caused fear and humiliation.

2. And it's really frightening

When you're being held down by a group of men and one of them has a pair of scissors, you don't know how or what is about to happen. That is major psychological trauma. Mitt should be prosecuted for assault.

4. The RW asshole commenters at the local newspaper's story about this was basically "its just hair,


it grows back".

This won't lose Shitt Romney any supporters from conservatives. To be honest it will probably gain him a few. They aren't looking for a POTUS candidate, they're looking for a ASSHOLE. See also, Perry, Cain, Newt, Frothy. The more hateful the candidate the more the right loves them.

7. I remember back in the day many conservatives

jumping hippies and cutting their hair or beating them calling them girls. They were threatened by men just having long hair. Chicken-shits that's all they are, scared of anything different than they are.
