State authorities have removed Adolf Hilter Campbell and his two sisters from their parents’ home in Holland Township, township police Chief David Van Gilson said today.
New Jersey’s Division of Youth and Family Services took the 3-year-old, as well as JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell, 1, and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell, who turns 1 in April, the chief said.
The chief claimed that he didn’t know why the children were taken but said his department had received no reports of abuse or neglect.
I’m not quite sure what to make of this. On the one hand, I’m glad they’ve been taken because in my opinion, they’re unfit parents for naming their kids such names…..but I’m not queen of the world. We are a nation of laws. Can the case be made that they’re unfit parents based on the names they chose?
Unless there’s more to the story, I’m not sure how NJ’s Div. of Youth and Family Services has the right to do this. What do you think?
All I know is I feel bad for those kids…..the parents – not so much.
at Hot Air:
The state statute defines child cruelty to include the infliction of “unnecessary suffering or pain, either mental or physical” — like naming a kid after Hitler? — but it also defines “child abuse” to include, er, the habitual use of profanity. (Yes, really.)
Maybe the dad has a really bad potty mouth, and that’s the pretense for taking the kids?
