Hang that nasty s.o.b It's a proven fact that you can not rehabilitate a sex offender and child molesters are the absolute worst !!!

Not only do these bastards molest little kids they use fear and threats of violence to keep them from telling anyone what's being done to them.

Give them a trial and if convicted hang them within 60 days or less

Sick people come from all walks of life including the Amish community. Never the less, A pedophile MUST be put away from society and punished to the fullest extent of the law. Again, I feel sorry for the pain and suffering of the victims going forward in life.

It is not uncommon for (some of) the Amish to rape children. Fathers often bed their daughters while they are still young. Brothers have their way with their sisters. It is disgusting and vulgar.

Very disturbing, hard to even read this story without wanting to vomit. Hopefully this sick pig will be a victim many times over for rest of his existence in prison.

Sicko! It shows that the human heart cannot be tamed by "wholesome living", or possibly that some of those pretending to live wholesomely weren't.

No family is free from blemish.No community is free from blemish. No state/nation is anywhere close to pure. No race is any better than any other.

It just goes to show us that people are people no matter what the circumstances might deceive us into believing.

Anyone ever heard of the idea that a defendant is presumed "innocent until proven guilty"? Ever heard of a wrongful conviction, even the execution of innocent convicts? Ever heard of anti-Amish prejudice and stereotypes? If not, keep listening.

Nooo fellas, but some of you think the Amish are such pure and wholesome folk and how awful for us 'Yankees' to intervene. Well it is about time someone does because (some of) the Amish have been molesting their children since the dawn of time. I grew up among the Amish and I do have Amish friends so I am not anti Amish or prejudiced against them. Some are just as guilty stereotyping Amish as "wholesome" as some are stereotyping them as a cult. These people are used to handling things on their own, within their own sect but the problem is, the children are still victims.

Here are a few considerations. It is still innocent until proven guilty, however if the Trib prints it, it must be true. The BHO administration is attempting to circumvent the Bill of Rights as we speak so take your bark elsewhere. Understand that you are reading the true pulse of the people here. Our opinions are written here because our voices have been stolen by rampant political corruption and self importance. I digress... Burn in*****Amish rapist

This is the reason that someone needs to really investigate the Amish culture as is is today.They hide their own just like this man had been hidden away in PA. It is time that are are made to follow ALL of the laws that we must obey in spite of our religious beliefs. I have lived here among the Amish for 35 years and this is not as uncommon as you might think.The only thing missing is Warren Jeffs. This is no more than a cult bound in secrecy, above all of the laws of a country that gives them the right to be Amish. An in depth investigation of what they really are/do is way past due.

I know and have known Amish for probably 20 yrs or so an like all cultures there are good and bad people. Some of the comments are warrented and some are simply dumb and from people that wouldn't know an Amish if they pinched them in the A.S.S. Yes if this man is GUILTY (not yet convicted yet) he is sick an deserves to be put down like a lame horse or sent to a slaughter house. LOL But the courts an time will tell.

It's not a fair comparison, a Polygamist Cult and the Amish. Stating that the only missing link to equal a Polygamist Cult is Warren Jeffs is absurd. Amish people have instilled values that Polygamists would have never have ever considered. I agree that they are their own cult of people. Mennonite, Pennsylvania Dutch, and American Indians all share in harboring dedication to their people and cause. There isn't anything illegal in doing so either ..........

I use to feel sorry for how people thought and treated the Amish. But after being involved everyday with them, most deserve it. They act so righteous and innocent, but that's just a scam. All thought most are very good carpenters, they are also thieves and liars. They have a habit of always ordering too much materials, which ends up in the trailer or the vehicle that hauls them. I know this for a fact, I've seen it many times. Usually those materials ends up going on another job, but mostly on a project they got going at home or another Amish's place. They truly believe and feel that our laws don't pertain to them. Years ago after the 8th grade, kids went to work on the family farm. But today they are out on construction work sites. An they don't have a work permit or etc, and do just about everything the older workers do. But because they are Amish, its ok for them to do that.

The secrets of the Polygamist society has only recently been unveiled to the outside world as will one day the truth about the Amish culture.Each Bishop has total control of the lives of those in his church.Warren Jeffs was one man, there are many Bishops each with a totally different set of ideas and guidelines.The practice of hiding their crimes within the Amish community is exactly what the FLDS does. They do not have the right to be their own judge, jury and hide their people in a hidden Amish retreat. If they want to live in this great country, in spite of their convictions, they must understand and be willing to obey all of the same laws we follow in spite of our religious choices.I would like to know what values these people have instilled at all that are different than yours or mine.The definition of a cult is very plain and does not give degrees of cult activity. A cult is a cult.

I would like to know who sent him to Whispering Hope.Who did these children go to for help? Did other adults send him there and not report these sickening acts to the proper authorities. I will bet that the answer is no! They told their Bishop who decided how they would move forward. If other adults knew and did not report it, then they too should face prosecution.You say this is dedication to their own people? These are children and this is illegal!
