_Attacks On Amish NOT Hate Crimes_ (ANA)

Since January, at least ten or fifteen incidents have occurred in
Nappanee,
Indiana, where Amish men on bicycles have been beaten and robbed on
their
way home from work.  Some of the men have been beaten with metal pipes
or
tire irons.  The Amish have been targeted because they are pacifists
whose
religion prevents them from fighting back and reporting their problems
to
the police.  However, one Amish man, fearing someone would eventually be
killed, stepped forward and reported the incidents to the police.
Officials
have arrested five people they believe are responsible for the attacks.
Detective Sgt. Tom Brindle said this will _NOT_ be considered a hate
crime.
 He said "They weren't doing it because they were neo-Nazis or anything
like
that.  They were just doing it because they were easy prey. Amish men
don't
carry credit cards, they don't carry checkbooks.  They always carry cash.
"
