Amish Mugshots

Who'd You Rather?

Eight Amish men were jailed in Kentucky ... and not for their curious haircuts and mustache-free beards.

The men are part of the Old Order of Swartzentruber and were jailed for refusing to pay fines after failing to adhere to a state law which requires orange triangles be placed on their horse-drawn buggies.

But the real question is ...

Harvey Levin you should be ashamed of yourself for allowing this to be posted. This is going to cause these people more shame than they deserve. Please take this down, show a little compassion for once!

This is stupid...I wasn't aware that the TMZ staff was made up solely of 14 year-old boys. Have some dignity and take it down. Idiots. You know, it's funny when it's celebrities with their moronic behavior and millions of dollars and selfish egos, but when it's defenseless people who hurt nobody and live their lives for God, it's not so funny. I'm surprised TMZ would stoop this low.

Extremely offensive!!! It is against the Amish religion to have a photo taken, as they believe it brakes the commandment "Thou shalt not make any graven image!" This is disgusting! TMZ should be ashamed for such a display!

THE AMISH ARE EVIL,FAR-RIGHT, ULTRACONSERVATIVE NAZIS. IF THE AMISH DON'T WANT TO FOLLOW OUR LAWS THEN DEPORT THE AMISH. EITHER THAT OR FORCE THE AMISH CHILDREN INTO THE PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEMS AND PUT AN END TO THE FILTHY, SUPERSTITIOUS WAYS OF THE AMISH.

HArvey, leave them alone.How would you feel if it was "Gay mug shots" and have a "who would you rather" pole. For someone who claims that Gays should be respected and diversity tolerated, you dont seem very tolerant yourself. Take these pictures down and have respect for these people's right to religion.

The Amish do NOT like to be photographed for religious and cultural reasons. That is why they all have such sour and dour looks on their faces.

While law enforcement had to do it but publishing it and then ridiculing them over it is a whole 'nother thing. At best it is insensitive. As a little understood group, I am hoping this is a case of just not knowing any better. If not, that's a pretty s***my thing to do.

As for the beards/hair - that is a combination of cultural tradition and hat hair. Grow up
