"The allegations were that the family was residing in a tent, mother had given birth in the tent, there is no running water or septic, none of the children were enrolled in school and the father threatened a neighbor with a weapon (asked child to hand him the gun)."

That will do it. I would have made a complaint too. Living in a tent is not "living off the grid". It's not providing a proper home. My husband and I are debating living off the grid - this isn't it, this is bad.

It probably also has something to do with the sexual abuse.

Some people like to live that way. And even when those types of people do build dwellings, the government will often come in and say "this hasn't been approved by an inspector" and they will tear it down and take the kids. I personally don't live that way but I don't see what's wrong with people who do. At a certain point you're being kind of a presumptuous control freak to just walk in to some random persons residence and start barking orders about how they "should" be living. I've seen people completely live off the land and stick to themselves and pull it off with flying colors.

Now, I can't say this family is functional. I saw the mention of sexual assault. I'm just saying, the way that some people choose to live shouldn't be dictated by everyone else. The authoritarianism in this country is kinda out of control. They hunt these people down in the middle of nowhere and then find ways to fuck with their shit. That's messed up.

Well, the sexual abuse testimony came after the arrests so I can understand missing out on that

The language of the linked article is also so biased that even if they know about all that they would probably leave it out. It doesn't fit the narrative.

most states will not forcibly take a parents rights completely, especially if both parents are together still. This dude lost his right to his oldest child. There is a lot more here than is being told.

It bothers me that I can't just read an unbiased article.

On Monday, May 11, Breckinridge County court heard testimony from Joe Naugler's eldest son, Alex Brow, who stated he was physically and sexually abused by his father.
