Is this another sign of the times?

I have always had a deep respect for the Amish; their beliefs, and their lifestyle. That's why I was shocked when I read this.. A few questions though:

  1.  The way the article reads, the police didn't seem surprised that it was an Amish man involved. They said "We thought, 'Well, this is obviously going to be it.'" Did he disclose in the text messages that he was Amish?
  2. Even the Amish are compromising their core beliefs. First Cell Phones, then what?
  3. Will the offender be allowed back in the community?
 1 John 2:15-16 ESV: Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.  (16)  For all that is in the world--the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions--is not from the Father but is from the world.

Please, share your take on this.. Just another sign of the times, or a strangely isolated incident?
