“Living Off The Grid ” Is this a Crime
If you have not heard of this story yet from the news, I am sure you will soon. Joe and Nicole Naugler live in Breckenridge County, Kentucky where they raise there 10 kids living (and one on the way) “off the grid”. This is the life style they chose to raise there kids in, and many people do choose this life style. They home school there children or “unschooled” as Nicole likes to call it, they live off of the food they grow, and the animals they take care of.
This is a picture of the home that they are currently living in, and lived in all winter! There kids were recently taken away and put in to 4 different foster homes . There is a lot of controversy about whether the kids should have been taken away. You first think that, they can live however the want to, but looking closer into this story there are a lot of things that do not seem right.
Here is the reason they are saying the kids were taken away:
Here is the Audio that they recorded during there few times the police came to there home:
There are some thing that people may not know about the Naugler Family
And the inside of the “cabin.” As you can see, there are only three walls, and while they claim that they had a fourth wall up during the winter, we’re going to have to take their word for it. In searching all of the pictures on the family Facebook page, I was unable to find any photos of the “cabin” taken during winter that are anything other than close-ups of the children in bed.
The platform along the back wall is where the whole family of twelve sleeps.
Also there are some of there children that do not have Birth Certificates or SS cards.
They do not have running water in there home, Joe was arrested for stealing water from the neighbors, and asking his child to get the gun out of the car. Do they always have to steal water?
They will not except and help from the state, BUT they did start a Gofund Me page to help raise money for them. They raised 35,000 dollars in 2 days. Was this all a ploy to get money?
Nicole will not talk with the Police or Child Protection, but she states she has nothing to hide. If so why not talk to them and show them there is nothing to hide?
This post can go on forever…look up these people and leave your comments below, and let me know what you think!
DO YOU THINK THE KIDS SHOULD HAVE BEEN TAKEN AWAY? IS THIS NEGLECT ON THE PARENTS PART? OR SHOULD THEY BE JUST LEFT ALONE?
