Parents lose custody of Adolf Hitler; reporter loses breakfast

You might remember the story from 2008 about little Adolf Hitler, whose parents rose a stink when a supermarket refused to put Adolf’s full name on his birthday cake. The Campbell parents later lost custody of their three children: Adolf Hitler, JoyceLynn Aryan Nation and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie.

Now a New Jersey appellate court has ruled the parents won’t be getting their kids back:

The appeals court ruled Thursday to “reverse” the previous court decision, saying that social workers had “proved the need for protective services for these children within the meaning of abuse or neglect.”

The court said that Heath Campbell, 37, has never held a job because of medical and psychological disabilities, and cannot read. Deborah Campbell, 27, also had mental and physical problems.

Social workers were sent to investigate in December 2008 following reports “that the children were being strapped and confined for unusual amounts of time within the home in child booster seats and that domestic violence occurred in the home,” the court said.

Frankly, I was more fascinated by the headlines this story has received than the story itself. And I wasn’t going to blog about it—until I saw this photo at Above the Law.

Cute? Creepy? Without a doubt scarier than “The Last Exorcism?” Yes.
