An Amish family walks to their friends' house for a visit as seen on a buggy tour through Lancaster County, Pennsylvania August 9, 2014. It's that Old World charm of the Amish that draws 8 million tourists - and $1.9 billion - each year to Pennsylvania's Lancaster County, home of the nation's largest Amish community of 31,000. What the Amish don't do, supporters say, is tote rifles as part of a violent protection racket - as depicted in the television show "Amish Mafia" - or regularly defy their religion, like in "Breaking Amish" and "Breaking Amish: Brave New World." And, Amish horror stories are not the norm, despite the plot lines of the upcoming "Amish Haunting." Filmmaker Mary Haverstick is leading a push to eject the shows, airing on the Discovery Channel and related networks, from Lancaster County. The movement is gathering support because of what some see as a demeaning, inaccurate portrayal of the gentle, devout group. But some wonder if the hard-edged reality TV approach is that different from the soft exploitation of the Amish by the local tourism industry. In both, the Amish are unpaid, costumed "extras."

Lam Yiu-chung, 47, a former senior manager of Po Sang Bank, a unit of
the Bank of China, leaves a courthouse in Hong Kong September 11, 2002.
Eight people including Lam appeared in court on Wednesday charged for
their roles in what has been billed as the city's largest
money-laundering racket. Prosecutors told the court the case involved
cash amounting to HK$50 billion (US$6.4 billion) being smuggled from
mainland China to Hong Kong "on a daily basis" between 1996 and 2001.
