BRECKINRIDGE COUNTY, Kentucky – In just a matter of a few hours the comments, for and against, The Naugler Family of Breckinridge County, Ky. has run the gambit.
[Long story short they are a family from North Central Kentucky that believe strongly in living simply and primitively on their 28 acre farm in Garfield, Ky. And up until 06 May 2015 they had been doing exactly that.]
But exactly nineteen days ago Joe and Nicole Naugler found themselves on the receiving end of a visit from Breckinridge County Sheriff Todd Pate.
Granted there are two sides to every story, but to hear it told and to have it said Sheriff Pate came to the Naugler Home Place on the afternoon of 06 May 2015, according to reports, along with representatives from the Breckinridge County Health Department, Child Protective Services Division, with the full weight and measure of his elected office to relieve Joe and Nicole of their ten children – on the grounds of ‘abuse’ and ‘neglect’ that had been anonymously reported. And in the process Nicole Naugler, 38, was arrested by Sheriff Pate, reportedly for ‘disorderly conduct’ and ‘resisting arrest’.
“We have allowed CHFS to inspect our property and interview our children multiple times. After every visit they have confirmed, and confirmed again today that our children are happy, healthy and well cared for and that our property is sufficient for their needs. Despite that, the judge decided as a result of the deliberations in today’s hearing that our children will remain in CHFS care while they continue their investigation. … Although we are sad our children will not be returned to us today, we have nothing to hide. We have cooperated with all requests made to us by CHFS and will continue to do so. We are confident that throughout this process Nicole and I will be shown to be the good parents that we are and that our family will be reunited. We thank everyone for all you have done for us and ask for continued prayers for our children. We want all our children to know that we love them and we are constantly with them in our hearts.” – Joe & Nicole Naugler, Blessed Little Homestead, [public statement made on 12 May 2015].
The Sheriff, who had no warrant or cause proceeded to arrest Nicole and in so doing elected to throw and then slam Mrs. Naugler on the hood of a patrol car, stomach first, and then throw her in the back of a patrol car.
[She was hauled off to jail where she was reportedly abused and tortured for two days straight until she saw a judge on 08 May 2015 in Hardinsburg, Ky. – the Breckinridge County Seat.]
For his part Sheriff Pate has had no no public comment, but on afternoon of 12 May 2015 after a formal hearing in Hardinsburg, Ky. with an elder son of Joe Naugler’s who came forward to testify in court about ‘beatings’ and ‘sexual abuse’ that he suffered at the hands of his father, he managed to stand a watchful, approving eye.
Granted, and again, there are two sides to every story, but damn do you have to slam a five month, clearly, pregnant woman on the hood of a patrol car and arrest her, then torture and abuse her the way that you reportedly did, in this way Sheriff Pate?
Care to comment? I mean I know you can’t comment, publicly, on cases that involve kids, but surely you can account for your attitude and actions towards Mrs. Naugler on the afternoon of her arrest sir? Surely for once you can be accountable to the voters of Breckinridge County, who elected you and have kept you in public office since 2003? If for nothing else.
But I guess not. Because in this ‘post-9/11 world’ the days of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness are so 1999.
Welcome to Police State USA folks.
Free Speech? What free speech?
The Right to be Secure in your Houses, Affects, Papers and Personages? Gone!
The Right to Live your life according to the way that you see fit? Raise your children, as you see fit? – We’re all adults here, right? – Not happening.
And if you cross swords with the high sheriff of Breckinridge County, Ky. well … You and yours better be prepared to come out on the loosing end of things. Bottom line.
But this is what it has come to. You cannot expect less, and you most certainly should expect more of your rights and freedoms to be taken away from you daily.
In this respect and regard I am reminded of the portion of the bard, which says, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…”
And we are living in the worst of times here in Police State USA. Especially when a mother and father can’t raise these beautiful babies as they see fit.
And although I do encourage you all to look at both sides of the story because there are a lot of sides to this story. The pros, and cons, as I said in the opening of this “world-wide media story,” run the gambit.
Know this though. Somewhere in all the noise. All the sound and furry signifying nothing. Lies the TRUTH. The whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help us God. And good people have a duty and responsibility to get to the truth of this story. To talk about this issue. This issue as it relates to the State no longer accepting of how the American people live our lives as we see fit, especially when and if we are not hurting anyone or anything – and I say that with hesitation, because the State and in particular Sheriff Pate need a refresher course in the Rules of the Road. Representative Governance needs a refresher course in the rules of the road.
You do not come on a person’s private property without cause or warrant and remove what belongs to them without their expressed consent or written permission. I don’t care if they are or are not the worst human beings on the planet. The Rule of Law is Crystal Clear on that.
You do not arrest and try someone on the fact that they were not remorseful in the commission of a crime. The Rule of Law is Crystal Chrysler Clear on that.
And you do not, as a Representative of Law participate in, plot, plan or collude with others in order to commit a crime, and THEN EXPECT to get away with the commission thereof.
With all due and proper respect Sheriff Todd Pate and his colluded need to go to North Korea or Red China, even Russia with that mess and join the Cossack Police or something. This is STILL the United States of America where all Government is derived from the Consent of the Governed.
P.S. The Naugler Family have incurred great loss, hardship, and emotional stress. To me they deserve their day in court. – In the court of public opinion and the court of law, with a fair and impartial judge and jury of their peers. As such they need to retain legal services. Court costs, no doubt fines, etc. IF you can or would care to donate to a legal defense fund that has been set up in their name on gofundme.com it would be greatly appreciated.
