Amish Law and Order

In the criminal justice system, the people are entertained by two separate yet equally important groups: the Amish, who presume their own guilt, and the cows, who wear the RFD's.

These are their stories.


From the Wired Blog

The Bush administration on Thursday urged a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit brought by a group of Amish farmers in Michigan claiming RFID chips required on cattle "are a mark of the beast."

The Amish farmers claim Michigan regulations requiring them to use radio frequency identification devices on their cattle "constitutes some form of a 'mark of the beast' and/or represents an infringement of their 'dominion over cattle and all living things' in violation of their fundamental religious beliefs," according to the farmers' lawsuit (pdf) filed in September in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
