State authorities have removed Adolf Hilter Campbell and his two sisters from their parents' home in Holland Township, township police Chief David Van Gilson said today.

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.

The parents, Heath and Deborah Campbell, were to appear for a hearing today at the Hunterdon County Justice Center, the chief said, but the hearing was postponed.

The chief didn't know why the children were taken but said his department received no reports of abuse or negligence.

Campbell, reached at home this evening, declined comment. Do you have a comment? Be sure to post it below.

Past readers have been critical of Heath and Deborah Campbell's name choices for their children.

What ever happened to common sense?

I choose not to state an opinion about the removal until I know why they were removed. However, I can honestly picture little Adolph getting beaten by his classmates simply because of what his name represents and I highly doubt they will bring back segregation just to please these stupid parents. Naming those kids such names was a very irresponsible decision on the part of some very stupid people.

I'm reminded of this...
Some names are so weird they constitute child abuse, according to a court in New Zealand.

There are limits.
