    He was warned the first time to comply with the FDA and he changed his labeling . But he gave out pamphlets advertising other than the label .
    FDA shows up for inspection and they were met with guns and forced to leave .
    He had also tampered with a witness .
    I am no fan at all of the Amish . People in Bath County eat the Amish up . They think they are so honest . They are wrong .

    Here is a youtube video from a man in Florida that sell all kinds of ailment cures and in my opinion is no different than the Amish sell saves .He has several video's on youtube . Some may be true but who knows , It may be just to talk you out of your money

    I think the people in Bath co. like the Girod family. I've not came across many that like Sam, though. Most say he comes across as arrogant.

    A lot of the media outlets are portraying him as the victim. Like I said before Ill be the first to say that I should be able to buy homemade cheese and raw milk if I want to. Im a big boy and if I get stomach larva then its on me.
    That said he was way out in the wrong with what he was doing and he had several chances to make it right before this happened.

    Agreed. But I do think the punishment is a bit harsh. Especially considering the way drunk drivers get off for killing people or causing accidents. I'm certain things like that are far more dangerous than any salve he concocted.

    It's a topical ointment for God's sake. As long as it does not contain a controlled substance...buyer beware. If you use such a salve for cancer treatment (your an idiot) and it doesn't work, sue him but other than that the government has no business getting involved. We have allowed this behemoth government to continually over step it's bounds and regulate every aspect of our lives and it's truly sad.

    I don't know any Amish. But I would bet that part of their pacifist ideology involves obeying the law. What this guy did was disobey the law and try to excuse it by saying he didn't recognize U.S. law as pertaining to him. Just like when you are in court and the judge says sit down or you will be held in contempt...and you don't sit down...and you wind up sitting in jail. The judge didn't do it to you. YOU did it to yourself. Set up a showdown with a federal judge and you better bring your toothbrush.
    Saying you are a gentle farmer so you don't have to obey the law like everyone else-- doesn't work. He is a U.S. citizen and the multiple attempts to convince him to obey the law did not work. No Judge I ever saw would ever say "well, OK, since you don't like that law we'll just skip it for you." Never happen.

    Oh I agree! Hes been made an example of.. You would not believe the people I saw over the years in prison get less for much,much worse crimes..This ol' boy pushed the wrong buttons with the wrong people and he got a case of "Ill show his arse" in the sentencing. I think it was overly harsh too..
