Shawn Hornbeck Child Kidnapping

1. I feel Shawn is somehow being exploited, by not only the media, but by his parents. I would imagine that after a little 11 year old boy was kidnapped by a pervert, and kept prisoner for a little over 4 years by whatever means Michael Devlin kept him from escaping, the parents would do everything in their power to keep him away public view.

It is obvious the parents are enjoying the publicity to themselves, while the boy is suffering, and is most uncomfortable being constantly exposed to the world.

Shaw, along with his parents appeared EVERYWHERE, including the Oprah Winfrey Show. Why? Are the parents being paid money to have their son appearing on TV? And how dare they telling the world that they feel Shawn was sexually abused for all those years? Even if it’s true, I’m sure Shawn would want to share the experience with only those who could help him eventually survive the horrible ordeal. It really breaks my heart that of all people, he has these heartless parents!

I feel so very sorry for Shawn, because what he needs more than TV exposure is immediate medical attention and private counseling. He doesn't seem to have a will of his own, to demand he be left alone to mend the psychological wounds the beast inflected on him for so many years!

His parents say it's been Shawn's choice to appear publicly, but I don't believe this for a minute. How can it be his choice, if the man who kept him captive for so many years, demoralized him, and destroyed whatever self esteem he possessed as an 11 year old little boy, to feel he has the capability or right to have a choice in anything?

How differently Ben Ownby's parents have behaved, allowing him to appear in public only ONCE, to thank the public and show how grateful they were to have their son back unharmed.

2. How can there be compassion if one hasn't suffered?

There are people who have no souls, no hearts and no compassion, and O'Reilly is one of them.

All he is a pompous, immature, judgmental, know it all man, who seems to think that just because he graduated from Harvard, he's knows more than doctors, lawyers, and Indian chiefs. To hear the man talk, you would think he has a crystal ball which exposes exactly all ulterior motives everyone has for their actions. Now, he believes he's earned a degree as a psychologist and psychotherapist specialist, because he now says there is no such thing as Stockholm Syndrome!

After reading this, I believe more than ever that he is a very bad man!

"After teaching teenagers in high school, it is hard for
me to believe that a normal kid would stay in a horrible
environment when escape was easy, especially if the child
had confidence in his parents."
- Bill O'Reilly

"I actually hope I'm wrong about Shawn Hornbeck. I hope he
did not make a conscious decision to accept his captivity
because Devlin made things easy for him. No school,
play all day long."
- Bill O'Reilly

Here you can both see him, and hear O'Reilly tearing Shawn apart:

a big crush
The man truly loves himself and thinks he's grand!

And to think my friend Norma and I once had a big crush on him! :o(

Yeah, you get that out of a lot of Ivy League graduates. That's one of the reasons I don't bother with his show.
Jan. 19th, 2007 06:54 pm (UTC)
But you gotta watch his show so you can see for yourself just how evil some men (and women - Ann Coulter) can be!

I also think it has gotten out of hand...and is ridiculous...

I think he needs privacy and treatment. Why aren't his parents ensuring this? I don't understand...
Jan. 20th, 2007 02:15 am (UTC)
I don't understand how his parents could continuously parade their son around to the media.
They've been doing this since day one.

I look at the picture of him, especially his eyes, and I see someone who would rather be left alone, to mend his wounds in private.

I've had the same thoughts about Shawn being exploited. Seems like the kid mostly needs to be home in a familiar family situation and given time to deal with what he has been through.

Jan. 20th, 2007 01:12 am (UTC)
I feel the parents are more concerned about getting public exposure. I saw them again early this morning on Fox news. This time Shawn wasn't present.

I can see it in his eyes. He needs help desperately!

He should be left outta the media for a while.... ive no idea who Bill O'Reilly is but he sounds like an ass

Shawn does seems well looked after though IMHO... sounds daft but with his piercing im guessing he had access to the outside world... Is it wrong that i think he looks HAWT?
Jan. 21st, 2007 01:38 am (UTC)
I believe so, too. O'Reilly is very much disliked by most.
Jan. 20th, 2007 12:42 am (UTC)
After the facts came out i find myself agreeing somewhat with Bill o riely also after what this guy wrote about erica smart who was in a similar situation i am even more skeptical http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=elizabeth_smart

Shawn was an 11 yr. old little boy when he was abducted. God only knows what the beast did to him, or threatened him with.

Perhaps he threatened him by telling him he'd murder his family if he escaped. These child preditors are pretty clever in capturing their victims. I'm sure they're as clever in finding ways to keep them from escaping in the future.
Jan. 20th, 2007 03:06 am (UTC)
some people are media whores....
and there are attenion whores...
I just hope the whole family gets the therapy they'll need for the next decade or two..
Jan. 21st, 2007 12:37 am (UTC)
They sure are, and they could care less who they harm.

Shawn's parents are as stupid, and heartless as can be. And yes, you're right about the therapy.
Jan. 21st, 2007 07:18 pm (UTC)
How right you are Savanah! I wish Opray Winfrey, and Bill O'Reilly and every one in the press that is only using this child would just Stop and let him be! I think that they are no better then the piece of crap that kidnapped him and used him for so many years. Now is the time for him to heal and he needs every one to let him have the chance to heal, if he can? I don't really know why people like Bill O'Reilly cannot see what it is that they are doing to this boy.

Love can go a lot further, then trying to raise ones self by jumping on someone else's head while they are down.

And he is so wrong Stockholm syndrome does exist I have seen it with my own eyes.

And I am sorry Savanah for deleting my last comment here I wanted to re-write it

Thank you for sharing my same opinion on this topic of Shawn, Sweety Pie.

I didn't know you had deleted anything, because I don't have any email anymore!! :o(

Hey hun.... I saw this Article and had to pop over to tell ya

This Article Reports that Shawn called himself Shawn Devlin to police (when talking to an officer about a stolen bike) and also wrote messages on his foundation website


Pretty interesting read, throws a whole new light on things me thinks

Also http://www.shawnhornbeck.com/ states that

.....there will now no longer be any media interviews unless Shawn wishes to speak. Shawn and his family carefully decided to get all of the media interviews overwith in one day so any interviews that you may see on TV from now on have all been pre-recorded........
Jan. 23rd, 2007 11:46 pm (UTC)
Shawn's parents shouldn't have been concerned about getting the interviews over with at all. They should have been more concerned in keeping their child out of the media, until Shawn would have be able to decide to do so.

God know what horrors that horrible man inflicted in the poor boy when he was 11, to eventually have him forget his own true identity!

Thank you so much for the link! :o)
