Well, fourth, actually. (But great line from Mistress E!) Read on…..
Hons Campbell was taken into custody by the New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services late Thursday night after the doctor who delivered the baby called the agency, the paper reported.
The Campbell family stepped into the spotlight in December 2008 when a ShopRite grocery store declined to decorate a birthday cake for their son Adolf Hitler Campbell’s third birthday. — Yahoo.com
I love the part about the birthday cake. What’d they give him for a birthday gift — Poland? We’ll get back to that.
Meanwhile, I offer the Campbells as Exhibit A in the case to preserve legal and accessible abortions. Not for the newborn — hell, it’s not poor little Hons’s fault — but for the parents. Both cry out for the need to provide court-ordered post-natal abortions to stop their reproduction. Nothing else will work. It would be the moral equivalent of draining a swamp where dengue-fever carrying mosquitoes breed. Or cleaning up a toxic waste dump.
Both examples have relevance to this case, too — remember, we’re talking about New Jersey.
The nagging doubt you’re feeling is that parents should be allowed to name their kids whatever they want, right? Wander into any middle school tomorrow and look at the enrollment documents — you’ll see names so downright outrageous or ridiculous you’ll start to sputter. Some have 9 letters and no vowels. Others look like typographic errors. Here: make up your own.
But it turns out the names these sociopaths bestowed on their beloved issue are but the gilt edge of their craziness. Both are unemployed and suffer from “unspecified physical and psychological disabilities.” They’re both drop-outs, and the old man is illiterate. A panel found they were subjecting the kids to the risk of serious harm. And there’s this:
The judges considered a typo-riddled note signed by Deborah Campbell and given to a neighbor. In it, Campbell says that if she were found dead, her husband was to blame.
“Hes thrend to have me killed or kill me himself hes alread tried it a few times. Im afread that he might hurt my children if they are keeped in his care. He teaches my son how to kill someone at the age of 3,” the letter read in part. — CBSNews
So we’re probably not just talking about funny nomenclature here. In fact, under the circumstances, that’s just icing on the cake. So to speak. Heh heh heh.
