Much to the surprise of the general public, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled in favor of expanded the ability of law enforcement to search without warrants.

Justice Samuel Alito wrote for the majority of the court which  ruled 6 to 3 that "when occupants of a residents disagree on whether they will admit police without a warrant, the objecting occupant must be physically present," the Washington Post  reported. "That doesn't change if police have removed the objector," the court added. "An occupant who is absent due to a lawful detention or arrest stands in the same shoes as an occupant who is absent for any other reason," Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. wrote.

Individuals suspected of having a serious contagious disease could face five years in prison if they defy orders to stay at home - including forced vaccinations, searches without a warrant - according to new legislation passed into Australian law.

The Biosecurity Bill 2014 cleared parliament yesterday, and is aimed at 'preventing' the spread of diseases, such as Ebola, in human populations and agriculture, despite having no confirmed cases of the outbreak in Australia. The government expects the human control orders to be 'seldom used', but believes they are important to manage serious communicable diseases, especially in light of the recent Ebola epidemic.

An off-grid homeschool family of 12 in rural Kentucky was raided, the mother arrested, and the 10 children seized simply because the government disagrees with their lifestyle and their educational choices, family members and friends say.

Until Wednesday, Joe and Nicole Naugler lived with their 10 kids in a cabin on 26 acres in Breckinridge County, about an hour southwest of Louisville. "They are an extremely happy family," family friend Pace Ellsworth told Off The Grid News. Acting on an anonymous tip about the family's off-grid lifestyle, sheriff's officers entered the property and home Wednesday, and even blocked the access road to the family property, the family says.
