When followers of Amish bishop Samuel Mullet Sr. used horse shears to cut the beards and hair of other Amish people, were they perpetrating a hate crime? Federal prosecutors say the shearings qualify under an expanded hate crime definition. Mullet and 15 followers are on trial in a Cleveland courtroom in a case that's attracted international attention. Join host Mike McIntyre for a conversation about Amish religious practices and the definition of a hate crime. Thursday morning at 9.
