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 ...

I can't believe all the hate this post is getting. This is hilarious. And since when do TMZ visitors care about other's privacy, private citizen or not? Once you go to jail and have a mugshot, that information belongs to the public, therefore making you an automatic public figure even if you're not a major celebrity.

The law was created because several ppl were killed or injured when a truck rear ended an Amish buggy. The men refused to display the signs to prevent further injury/death and were fined when caught without the signs. The refused to pay the fines and were senteced to 8 days in jail. The jail had jumpsuits dyed to accomodate them as much as possible. This is a public safety issue vs. religon. I can not believe TMZ is being so disrepectful to the Amish and the community in which they live. Very poor taste. Maybe you should have done a little more research before posting such a disgusting thing.

Leave these people alone. These are some of the most righteous people in the U.S. They mind their own business, never take a dime from the government, support themselves completely, have zero crime in their midst and live honorable lives. It is against their religion to have bright colors such as orange or red decorating their homes or their clothes or possessions, and it is against their religion to have "any graven images," in their homes or pictures taken of themselves. How dare you disrespect their privacy and faith by suggesting something immoral about them, "Who'd you rather?" It just shows how s***my and low your site is, and how you will do anything for notoriety. Disgusting. And disrespectful. Shameful.

This is definitely a message to all men out there. Doesn't matter what you look like if you can master that come hither look. Go #6, you crazy kid!

Geeze, lighten up people! I'm sure when they decided not to follow the law, they knew what the consequences would be. I guess they figured facing the evil camera was better than coughing up the fines. Oh and I picked #6 - he's kinda got a smoldering thing going on...

I <3 TMZ because you usually have made great choices in distinguishing between the hilarious and the tasteless. This time though, you have gone over the line!!!! These poor men are not murders, bank robbers or abusers...they simply chose not to pay a fine. This is not NEWS....these people are devout in their religion and bother nobody, they are NOT public figures in any way. These photos not only invade and disrespect their religious beliefs, but now you have put them on display for your own humour and enjoyment.....WRONG MOVE TMZ :(
