Man killed in Amish tomato-tossing prank
Pretty sad, I hope they catch the guy. What brought me up short was this:
The group told the sheriff's office they had been throwing tomatoes and firing paintball guns at passing vehicles.

"Paintball guns"? I'm pretty sure that paintball guns are somewhere above cars on the Luddite scale. Sometimes religion just makes no sense . . .
