Thank (insert diety of choice). I just read an article that said that New Jersey's Division of Youth and Family Services has removed three-year-old Adolf Hitler Campbell and his two sisters JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell, 1, and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell, 8 months, from their home. Exact reasons for the children's removal was not cited at this time.
You may remember hearing about the Campbells last month when they were in the news because a local ShopRite supermarket refused to inscribe Adolf Hitler's name on his birthday cake.
According to the article, Police, DYFS officials and a court spokeswoman declined to reveal the exact reasons the children were removed from their home, citing confidentiality, but a child protection official indicated it was not because of the children's names. Apparently, the children do not show any signs of physical or sexual abuse.
However, a neighbor did allege to the father, Heath, has some kind of hold over the wife and children, saying the children were only allowed in certain areas of the home and that on some occasions, young Adolf expressed that he did not want to go home.
So I guess we'll see what happens with all of that. When I first heard of the Campbells last month, I couldn't help but feel bad for those children. I mean, talk about setting your kids back from the word go, and then to make it a matter of national interest over a birthday cake, sheesh. Maybe Mr. and Mrs. Campbell could have been loving, but misguided parents. Wow, I can't believe I said that, but I guess you've gotta give people the benefit of the doubt. A celebrity isn't necessarily a bad parent because they name their kid Apple or something dumb like that.
So now the kids are in custody and everyone's mum on the exact reason, and I guess all that anyone can hope for is that the children will be put into a loving and nurturing environment, and that they won't be going from bad to worse. I wonder if there is any precedent for children's names being changed once they're in a foster care system.
Children are so precious and impressionable that it's really tragic when someone does something so fucking retarded like this. I know it's a little rediculous to say that people should have to have a license to breed, like a drivers license, but really, some people should have to go through a screening process or something before they breed.
Hopefully, this will be the beginning of a new and happy life for the Campbell children, but I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
