This is just wanton and horrible!

Police in the heart of Pennsylvania’s Amish country say a horse pulling a buggy has been killed in a drive-by shooting.

WHTM-TV reports five people were inside the buggy Sunday night when a car drove by and a shot was fired in Ronks, in southeastern Lancaster County.

Police say the car didn’t stop after what sounded like a firecracker.

The horse was discovered to be injured when the buggy arrived at a farm about a mile away. It died before a veterinarian could arrive.

Look, I’m one of those guys who doesn’t get the Amish. I LIKE technology, modern medicine, and conveniences. Still if they honestly feel reward and spiritual unity from living the simple life, who am I to be bothered?

Still WHY would somebody shoot at an Amish buggy? Is this some board teens causing mayhem that killed a horse? Is this some Gang Bangers looking to score and easy kill?

No matter what, it doesn’t make sense to me. I know the Amish don’t read my blog (duh), but my heart goes out to them, and I hope the cops find these assholes, and the justice system doesn’t go easy on them!

    Just a guess, but I’d say some “road rage” idiot fed up after getting stuck behind a buggy doing 10mph on one of those small PA back roads with nowhere to pass.

    Not justifying the actions, I’m just as disgusted by it as you are, but I’d be willing to bet that was the root cause.

    Maybe (hopefully?) they’ll classify it as a hate crime, seeing as the Amish are a distinct and recognizable religious/cultural group.
