Amish case a disgrace

It has been brought to everyone’s attention that a good Amish man was arrested by U.S. marshals who came into his home with guns drawn, frightening him and his children. He was accused of making and selling herbal products that were not adequately labeled. He was tried by a judge and jury and sentenced to six years in prison.

Federal marshals and judges should have more important matters to attend to. Why not use their time and talent finding out the ingredients in the illegal drugs killing so many people every day? Or does it have something to do with the government wanting more taxes?
