Kid named Adolf Hitler case: Parents denying abuse happened, children still in foster care
Edited on Thu Oct-27-11 12:58 PM by alp227
Found this case via Drudge RETORT from the website of the NBC station in Philadelphia, WCAU: "Hitler's Parents Claim Judge Found No Abuse of Little Adolf, Aryan Nation":

Heath and Deborah Campbell, who named two of their children Adolf Hitler and JoyceLynn Aryan Nation, are claiming that a court vindicated them of all abuse allegations last month. But after 33 months in foster care, the children are still not home.

They beg to come home all of the time, Deborah told NBC 10 Tuesday. They beg to see their dad, they want to see their dad all the time.

While the Campbells maintained from the beginning that the only reason their children were taken away is because of their given names, New Jersey court documents stated last year that there was alleged abuse and parental incompetence.

A New Jersey appeals court ruled in August 2010 that there was sufficient evidence of abuse or neglect because of domestic violence in the home, and though there was a gag order for both parties in the case (which the Campbells have broken multiple times to deny the allegations), authorities have stated in the past that putting the children into the foster system had nothing to do with their names.

Here's another story expanding on the abuse accusations. Well, if the parents really did abuse their kids or commit domestic violence, shouldn't they have been convicted of those crimes in court instead of just losing their parental rights? Furthermore: "Neither Campbell has been adequately treated for their psychological conditions, court records said. Thirty-seven-year-old Heath cant read and Deborah dropped out of high school before finishing the 10th grade." Well, there are thousands and thousands of illiterates raising children, and there's no law against that. Finally, as super-duper distasteful the kids' names are, at least there's the 1st amendment.

2. Cute kids. Grandma equates 'Hitler' with Obama's middle name.

She said 'Hussein' (Saddam) is a terrorist. So there's no difference between Obama and this little kid having the names their parents gave them.

Otay... Well, for one thing, Obama wasn't named after Saddam Hussein. And for another, Saddam was a terrorist?

The mom said the harassment they've received 'hurts.' I'm sure it does. I don't know why or if they should lose custody of their children. I'm sure it's not just because of the names the parents chose.
