Police Abduct 10 Children From Kentucky Family Because Of “Off The Grid” Lifestyle

If the government does not like the way that you are raising your kids, they will come in and grab them at any time without giving any warning whatsoever.  Of course this is completely and totally unlawful, but it has been happening all over America.  The most recent example of this that has made national headlines is particularly egregious.  Joe and Nicole Naugler of Breckinridge County, Kentucky just had their 10 children brutally ripped away from them just because the government does not approve of how they are living their lives and how they are educating their young ones.


Let’s be very clear about this – Joe and Nicole had done nothing to violate the law whatsoever.  All of their kids were happy, healthy and very intelligent.  But because the control freaks running things in Kentucky got wind of their “off the grid lifestyle”, they have now had all of their children unlawfully abducted from them.

A lot of readers also lead “off the grid” lifestyles similar to what the Nauglers had been enjoying.  The Nauglers  own 26 acres in a remote area of Breckinridge County, and their family has been described as “extremely happy”.  But despite never giving them a single warning or a single indication that anything was ever wrong, Kentucky police raided their home on May 6th.  The following is how the raid was described on a website dedicated to this case

“On May 6th, 2015, Breckinridge Co. Sheriff’s officers came to their home, acting on an anonymous tip, and entered their property and home without a warrant and without probable cause. Nicole was at home with the two oldest children, while Joe was away with the others. When the officers left the home, they attempted to block the access road to the family property. Nicole and the two boys got in their car to leave the family property. The got only a short way down the road before the officers pulled Nicole over.”

During this stop, sheriffs deputies took their two oldest boys from Nicole’s custody, providing her no justification or documentation to support their action. Nicole was able to contact Joe briefly by telephone, but only for a short period of time, because she needed to use her phone to record the events.

“At that point, Nicole had been taken into custody for disorderly conduct (for not passively allowing the Sheriff to take her boys) and resisting arrest. Even though she is 5 months pregnant, she was slammed belly first into the cop car and bruised and scraped on both arms.”

And people wonder why there is such an uproar about police brutality in this country…

How in the world can a police officer ever justify treating a pregnant woman like that?  The police officer that treated Nicole like that should immediately resign.  Talk about an utter disgrace.  You do not ever treat a pregnant woman like that.

But this is America, where we are turning a little bit more into Nazi Germany every single day.

You can listen to audio of Nicole’s shocking arrest right here.

When Joe arrived on the scene, the police continued to act like Gestapo thugs

“Joe was able to arrange transportation to meet his wife where the stop had taken place. Joe attempted to get out of the car to speak with the officers and his wife, and to recover the vehicle Nicole had been driving. The Sheriff, with his hand on his sidearm, ordered Joe back into the car. Joe complied with that request. The sheriff informed Joe that he had every intention of making this as difficult as possible for them and that their car would be impounded, despite the fact that Joe was there on­site to recover it.”

“A friend, who had driven Joe to the location, got out of the car to speak with the Sheriff. She was able to convince the Sheriff to let Joe recover the vehicle. Joe also recovered Nicole’s cell phone, which had been recording audio the entire time.”

The Sheriff ordered Joe to turn the remaining eight children over to Breckinridge County Sheriff’s deputies by 10:00 a.m., and threatened him with felony charges if he does not comply.

Joe did comply with the Sheriff’s order, and now their kids have been scattered by CPS among families in four separate counties

“As of now, officials have placed the children with four families in four differentcounties, and as of Friday morning, the parents had not spoken with them. The four families are families that CPS chose – families the Nauglers don’t know.”

Shame on you Kentucky.  You are supposed to be better than this.

One of the most disturbing elements of this entire incident is that Child Protective Services never visited the Nauglers a single time and never gave them any indication that anything was wrong.  The following comes from Off The Grid News…”

Child Protective Services never visited the home, said Ellsworth, who believes the arrests took place because of the parents’ choice of “unschooling” for their children, and because of their simple way of life that some would call backwards. The family’s Facebook page calls it a “back to basics life.” They have a garden and raise animals. Deputies apparently were concerned about whether the children’s needs were being met, but friends say they personally have no concerns — and that the children are blessed to have Joe and Nicole as their parents.”

How would you like it if government thugs raided your home and tookyour children away because they considered your lifestyle to be “backwards”?

What in the world is happening to this country?

Like I said earlier, what happened to the Nauglers is not an isolated incident.  These kinds of things are happening all over the nation.  For example, just consider the abuse that one homeschooling family received in New Jersey

 “Meanwhile, in New Jersey, a WND report highlights how parents were interrogated by a CPS caseworker who questioned Christopher Zimmer and his wife Nicole, ‘on everything from their son’s homeschool education to questions about vaccines and guns in the house.’

“Michelle Marchese aggressively demanded to enter the property after asserting Christopher Zimmer Jr. was not getting a ‘proper education.’ Police subsequently arrived and allowed Marchese to enter the home before conducting a warrantless search.

“The Zimmers are now suing the CPS for $60 million in a case before the U.S. District Court in Trenton.

I very much hope that the Zimmers win that case and collect a huge monetary award.

All over the nation, CPS officials are running around acting like little dictators and trampling the law.  They need the courts to send them a clear message that this is a nation where the rule of law still applies.

If we do not stand with families like the Nauglers, control freak bureaucrats will continue to harass families that have chosen to live a “basic” lifestyle all over the nation.  So let’s stand with them and make this case viral all over the Internet.

And Kentucky, get your act together and send those kids back home.  You are supposed to be so much better than this.

  2. Chris B says:

    While these accusations sound outrageous, I suspect there’s more to the story we’re not being told. I’m always suspicious when only one side of the story is presented, especially when that version suggests authorities acted entirely outside of the law (they usually at least pretend!). It will be interesting to read the full story. Not to suggest any correlation with the above case, here’s an interesting tale of another ‘off grid’ alternative lifestyle family from Australia whose quite lives were turned upside down by ‘intrusive’ child protection workers….


  3. Chris B says:

    Now this sounds like a slightly more balanced summary of what is known of the family. I pass no judgement, though I’m inclined to feel sympathetic towards this family, who seem to want little more than to be left alone to live how they want to live. But you can understand the concerns, especially when there are ten children involved (babies and toddlers among them). All I am trying to point out is the need for balance where ever possible, unless the posting falls under the banner of ‘opinion’ or ‘comment’

  4. Men Scryfa says:

    Chris if you are not going to comment then do not comment.

    The presumption of innocence requires doing that, certainly until all of that evidence has been presented and not adding unhelpful unrelated information that may turn out to have no relevance whatsoever.

    The presumption of innocence requires the authorities to first support their allegations with a troublesome little thing called evidence before the bona fides of the parents ought to be questioned.

    The sad reality is that faced with the overwhelming evidence of state complicity in serious crimes against the people the starting point ought to now be automatic scepticism of allegations made by the authorities until proven with very very strong evidence.

    • Chris B says:

      Indeed, Mr Men, but it is clearly the ‘authorities’ who are the accused in this article – and thus you’d obviously agree the same presumptions of innocence should be afforded them. I’m choosing not to comment on the details of this story because scant facts have been presented. My only ‘comment’ is that any reportage should attempt to achieve balance, and that was sadly lacking in the original story posted here. For what it’s worth, I find it difficult to imagine that removing children from their families is ever really in their interests, except in the most extreme of cases. Thus my heart goes out to the family and especially these poor children. I’m merely trying to point out that child protection workers are often confronted with horrendous situations, and I find it hard to imagine that many of them have anything but the best of intentions (however misguided that may be). Alas, perversions occur on both sides of the fence. While institutional child abuse is clearly very widespread, the vast majority of child abuse victims reside with their families, and these mums, dads, uncles ect are all too often the very same people committing or permitting the abuse.

      • Nollidge says:

        NO government official should EVER be given a “presumption of innocence” under any circumstances whatsoever.Are you seriously unaware of what has been uncovered about these “child protection services” in both Britain & the U.S. in recent years?.Really?.

      • Chris B says:

        And are you aware of the scale of abuse being perpetrated behind closed doors within families? As disgraceful as the reports of institutional child abuse are, the vast majority of child abuse victims are abused by members of their own families. But according to you, we should do nothing to protect these children. Sorry, but I beg to differ.

  5. Men Scryfa says:

    If we deal with the rot at the top we will help to eradicate a lot of the rot below.

  6. Chris B says:

    Absolutely. Rot always starts at the head – I think we’re all on the same page in our desire to eradicate that disease. The trouble is, the body is an even bigger entity (by number at least, if not by scale of evil). So it is going to be even more difficult to weed out the rot that hides behind suburban and small town facades, especially when that require confronting neighbours or even trusted family members.

  7. Chris B seems to be an agent for the establishment doing doublespeak here. An agent of disinformation – a man who lacks empathy and understanding – a man who defends evil because he is on the side of evil.

    This is the sort of man whom CPS and TSA like to hire!

    And a man with a heart made of stone that has lost all feelings for humanity.

    We in America cannot fathom people like this man who doesn’t know what freedom stands for.


    • Chris B says:

      Damn, you’ve nailed me GTF! How did you guess I was really a secret agent of disinformation working for the forces of evil? Was it my suggestion that we shouldn’t leap to conclusions and try to get as much info as possible before condemning people? Or that one-sided debates aren’t particularly helpful? Or that claims should be backed up by evidence? I’ll obviously have to work on honing my deceptive skills a whole lot more before attempting to trick the likes of you again.
