Man Wears Nazi Uniform to Court in Child Custody Hearing

Jun 4 2013 7:56AM

A New Jersey dad, clad in a Nazi uniform, appeared in court to fight for visitation rights with his son, whom he named Adolf Hitler Campbell.

Heath Campbell was also wearing a Hitler mustache, The Smoking Gun reported.

Campbell is the founder of the Hitler Order hate group and appeared in court Monday to request visitation rights with his 2-year-old boy.

State welfare officials took his son into custody in 2011. They had already placed his older siblings, JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell, 6, and Honzlynn Jeannie Campbell, 5, into foster care as a result of the parents' alleged abuse.

Heath Campbell and his estranged wife Deborah Campbell said they never abused the kids and have argued they are being targeted for the names they chose, WCAU-TV, Philadelphia, reported.

In 2012, a New Jersey Superior Court denied the couple's appeal to regain custody.

Reporters were not allowed in the courtroom Monday for the visitation request, and the record was sealed.

Heath Campbell said he will be back in court later this month for another hearing.

"I'm gonna keep fightin'," he said. "I don't care if it kills me. I love 'em."
