Amish Sam UPDATE

Amish Sam Update: sentencing, location, where to send mail, etc. Sam is in prison now. Federal prison where criminals live. Supposed criminals.

Now that Sam is there — in Federal Prison where the U.S. Just Us system puts murderers and rapists and child molesters — I wonder how many real criminals we have amongst the hundreds of thousands incarcerated? But that’s for another day.

Here’s the Amish Sam update, including where he is housed and how to write to him.

The Appeal

Sam has started the appeals process. It could take quite a while to get that underway and I will post info on those proceedings as I have it.

How the appeal goes will determine when we submit the petition to the president.

Meanwhile, please keep sharing the petition bit.ly/freeamishsam

Sam’s Family May Not be Allowed to Visit EVER

Well, I HOPE YOU ARE SITTING DOWN. Inmate visitors have to have photo ID to get into a prison. Of course, none of Amish Sam’s family have photo ID and won’t be getting any due to religious reasons.

So, in a burst of compassion or something, the officials at Loretto prison said for Sam’s kids to send in birth certificates and SS cards, that the prison board would consider allowing this in lieu of photo ID.

Sam was SO EXCITED. The family was set to leave for PA today or tomorrow.

Then, in a burst of insane cruelty, the prison board decided against! Sam’s family won’t be allowed to visit without photo id. (The same rule was in place in the Lexington prison but they allowed Sam’s family to visit anyway.)

So it’s looking like Sam and his family won’t see each other for 6 yrs? Could this be true in America? I don’t have to describe what this has done for Sam’s morale.

Please WRITE TO SAM’S WARDEN

Attn: Warden
FCI LORETTO
FEDERAL CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTION
P.O. BOX 1000
LORETTO, PA 15940

Dear Warden,

You have Amish farmer SAMUEL A GIROD Reg. #18318-032 at your facility. Their Amish faith does not allow them to have a photo I.D. Please allow Sam’s family to use a birth certificate as I.D. and visit with Sam.

Maybe add this: “There are many English with photo I.D. who will accompany the family and vouch for family members.”

Whatever you say, be nice. Thank you.

Details about AMISH SAM’S SENTENCE

Update Amish Sam: Sam's sentenceSam got 60 months for all counts to be served concurrently except for Count 13 which was for “being a fugitive”: he didn’t show up for a hearing because he didn’t think he had to… So the judge tacked on 12 months for that non-crime to be served consecutively, just to be sure Sam got 6 years.

  • Counts 1 & 2 are for refusing the search and supposedly threatening the 2 armed FDA agents.
  • Counts 3-11 are for selling “drugs” across state lines.
  • Count 12 is for witness tampering.
  • Count 13 for missing the hearing.

Just for fun:

How many prisoners in the U.S.?

  • Just one more thing on this matter,you are asking to write the warden on behalf of sam and be NICE!.Are you kidding me you want to be nice to a man that upholds a defacto system,this man knows all to well how evil the system is and sees nothing wrong with it,he runs it. (I would not give this man the right time of the day).With this being said, I will ask everyone again join the common law movement its the only way out of this madness. If you have any doubt about what I am saying then read the book (CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED) BY Jason W Hoyt It will set you on the right path.

  • (GOVERNMENT ISSUED PHOTO ID) AND IS THIER BIRTH CERTIFICATE ALSO GOVERMENT ISSUED ? IF SO THIS IS HOW SAM GOT INTO THE SYSTEM.The Amish need to rethink their way of live,they need to get the hell out of the system and fast.YOU NEED TO REMEMDER WE ARE ALL ENEMYS OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT.This is a fact get used to it or change it, the choice is yours.

    Has the petition ever reached President Trump? If not, why not? I’m sure if Trump was really aware of this situation something would be done!! Maybe the best person to write would be Sam’s wife!! She should sit down with a very smart woman writer and compose a real long letter to Melania Trump!! Explain all the details and be sure and include how many children depend on Sam and his love for the family!! Good luck and keep me informed please!! This is the prime reason I left America in 1971 right after Kent State!! I sailed to the South Pacific Islands and have lived here ever since!! Life here is with nature and your fellow human beings!!! Peaceful and correct!!

    Regards to all, William

    • Hi William,

      Thank you for your comment. We are waiting on the appeals process before sending to Trump. Unless he lives in a cave, he’s aware. I know people have talked to him about it… as long as it’s in the courts, politicians are loathe to touch it. We just need to see if the appeals process will go quickly or not. If not, we’ll go ahead and present the petition!

  • Thank you, Bruce.

    “Notice To All Slaves Living On The Big Tax Plantation: Keep telling yourselves you’re free, even though you live in the country that incarcerates more of its own citizens than any other nation on the planet. More per capita, by far, but also more than any other nation period, including repressive totalitarian communist China with over four times the population of the US.”

    This needs to be memorized and repeated often. Right along with the Declaration of Independence…

    Sam is thrown in a cage. His federal government captors require a government issued photo ID before his Amish family are allowed to visit him. Then, they are allowed to substitute two other government issued IDs without a photo in order to visit. Then, those aren’t allowed. This sounds cruel and unusual to me.

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof… but it’s OK for the Federal Department of Corrections to write some administrative law that tramples all over an American’s religious expression and strongly held beliefs.

  • this case gained lots of publicity and yet so few people signed the petition. shame on the human race. after seeing the indifference of the messes I think that collectively we fully deserve the tyranny we are subjected to.
