HOLLAND TOWNSHIP, N.J., May 31 (UPI) -- A New Jersey judge ruled the parents of four children with Nazi-inspired names will not get custody of their kids.
Adolf Hitler Campbell, 6, and his two sisters, Joycelynn Aryan Nation Campbell, 5, and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell, 4, have been in state custody since shortly after a Holland Township grocer refused to decorate a birthday cake for the boy's third birthday, The (Newark, N.J.) Star-Ledger reported Wednesday.
State officials allegedly took custody of a newborn son, Hons Campbell, just hours after his birth in November.
Now, a Superior Court judge has decided that self-proclaimed Nazis Heath and Deborah Campbell cannot have custody of their children.
"These kids weren't abused. Our kids weren't taken because of abuse," Heath Campbell said. "I'm honest about who I am and what I am."
Lawyers in the case are prohibited from talking to the media by a gag order, but Kristine Brown, spokeswoman for the New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services, said, "every call or investigation that DYFS initiates at the end of the day is to determine if the child is at risk or in the midst of child abuse and neglect."
"If I have to give up my Nazism, then so be it. I'll do it," Campbell said. The children are "more my heart and soul and everything than anything."
The Campbells plan on appealing the ruling.
