If you name your son Adolf Hitler, you should probably expect unwanted attention. Namely, from the Division of Youth and Family Services.
Authorities removed Adolf Hilter Campbell and his sisters from their parents’ Hunterdon County home [in New Jersey], Holland Township police chief David Van Gilson said Tuesday. 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. Van Gilson said he didn’t know why the children were taken or who had custody. He said his department received no reports of abuse or negligence. […]
The Campbell family gained worldwide attention after a Dec. 14 story in The Express-Times about the children’s names and a Warren County supermarket’s refusal to write Adolf Hitler on a birthday cake.
Heath Campbell, who’s previously said he picked the names to honor German ancestry and because they are unique, has reported receiving threats after the story was published. [Express-Times]
