(Newser) – New Jersey parents have lost custody of a son they named Adolf Hitler, as well as daughters Jocelynn Aryan Nation and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie. The Appeals court ruling overturned a family court decision, and found that the parents suffer from unspecified physical and psychological disabilities. Heath and Deborah Campbell were victims of childhood abuse and neither "have received adequate treatment for their serious psychological conditions," the ruling stated. The parents "recklessly created a risk of serious injury to their children by failing to protect them from harm and failing to treat their disabilities," the judges ruled.

They cited a typo-riddled note written by Adolf Hitler's mom and slipped to a neighbor warning that her husband had threatened to kill her, reports AP. "Hes alread tried it a few times. Im afread that he might hurt my children if they are keeped in his care," wrote Deborah Campbell, who later called the note she admitted writing "a lie." The family attracted the attention of the media and child welfare authorities after a local supermarket refused last year to decorate a birthday cake with 3-year-old Adolf Hitler's name on it.

It is not right that the names the parents chose for their children resulted in the parents losing custody of their children....m. jackson, god rest his soul...named one of his children blanket, was hopped up on all sorts of meds. there are all sorts odd names in my family too. I would like to hear from the kids and hear what sort of psychological problems they have.

The article indicates the 2 parents were really screwed up. Death threats etc. Hopefully these kids can receive normal names, but irreparable damage may have been done already. Very sad.
