..... Heath and Deborah Campbell, the New Jersey parents of three children with Nazi-inspired names, lost custody of their fourth child 17 hours after he was born, the Express-Times of Lehigh Valley, Pa., reported.
Hons Campbell was taken into custody by the New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services late Thursday night after the doctor who delivered the baby called the agency, the paper reported.
Theres no legal binding court order. Its basically a kidnapping, but they use different terms, Heath Campbell told the Express-Times.
The Campbell family stepped into the spotlight in December 2008 when a ShopRite grovery store declined to decorate a birthday cake for their son Adolf Hitler Campbells third birthday.
The state took custody of Adolf, along with his sisters JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell and Honszlynn Himler Jeannie Campbell, in January of 2009. The three children have remained in foster care ever since.
A DYFS spokesperson told ABCNews.com in 2009 that she could not comment on a specific case, but said children are only taken into custody if there is a suspicion of abuse or neglect.
We would never remove a child simply based on their name, the spokeswoman said.
Neighbor Lori Dilts told ABCNews.com at the time the children were taken that it was certainly not because of their names.
Those children look outwardly healthy, but they didnt have much freedom, Dilts said. Occasionally, the little boy would come over here and would hate having to go back to his house.
The couples attorney, Pasquale Giannetta, told The Associated Press that a court a hearing has been scheduled for Monday to determine the custody status of the newborn.
Yes. And mandatory spaying and neutering would be a cure for this foolishness.
Hitler as a name is reason for removal of children from families, but Osama or Muhammed is not?
I don’t know if it’s child abuse but anyone who names a child Adolf Hitler should have their @$$ kicked. That child will have to live with that the rest of their life or change their name once they are old enough to do so. It’s just not a good idea and will cause the child to be on the receiving end of a lot of unnecessary BS throughout their lifetime. Name him Bill or George... or Sue but knock off the Hitler BS.
These people were truly stupid to give those names to their kids. But that doesn’t excuse the state kidnapping them from their parents.
Where’s Chris Christie? Doesn’t he care?
I agree that the parents deserve to, as you put it, have their @$$es kicked. But removing children for the parents’ extremely offensive taste goes beyond the pale and sets an ugly precedent.
There are dopes everywhere who give their children names that they cannot live with. A 16 year old French girl went to court to have her name changed from Clitorine a couple of years ago. What would inspired a couple to look at their baby girl and name her Clitorine, or Aryan Nation for that matter, is beyond me!
ditto ..these people are unfit to have children
The older siblings have been in custody for THREE years. It’s time for the state to fish or cut bait. Either the parents are unfit or they are not.
Either way, the children have a right to a true home and a true family. Sever the parental rights and put them up for adoption or return them to their bio parents.
But it’s ridiculous and abusive to the children to keep them in foster care forever trying to leverage the whacked out parents into compliance.
I am suspicious of the state removing the children. No one would have visited from the state agency if the kids were named John Smith and Jane Doe. There’s no indication of physical abuse or neglect.
The children were removd for the state didn’t agree with the way the parents were raising the kids with NAZI propaganda. Well, then what’s next? Homeschooling with Christian beliefs?
Be very careful if you support what was done here.
I graduated high school in 1962. In that school there was a family by the last name of Pancake. General Mills paid the family a certain amount to name each kid. The oldest was a boy my age. His first name was General.
He had three sisters named Jemima, Buttermilk, and Blueberry. No one put them in foster care although we did feel sorry for them. Southern CA in the 1960’s
Joe Stalin probably would have been ok.
If you disagree outright, the mindless, politically-correct FR mob attacks you.
That is what I wrote on the original article on Yahoo. If people want to be stupid, America has the freedom to be stupid.
