"State Police say Mark G. O'Brien, of Queensbury, raped the girl while videotaping the assaults. He's been sent to the Warren County Jail on $200,000 bond. O'Brien could face more charges.

Police say the investigation is ongoing and they are looking for other possible victims. Anyone with information is asked to call the State Police in Queensbury.'

How sick can some be..I am speechless..and that is probably a good thing for the moment..

Death penalty. Not 15 or 20 years from now, but within 6 months. These freaks are bullies and cowards. If they know that WHEN they are caught, they will pay with their lives, the vast majority could refrain from such acts. With DNA evidence getting more precise, the chance of them being caught goes up all the time.

Shooting would be too good for this lowlife piece of dirt. Why people like this have any civil rights is beyond me.

At least in the states they have half decent sentences, unlike here in Australia. Here he'd probaly get a slap on the wrist.

Anyone who has the mindset that this is okay to do to a child..let alone a child that is handicapped..should never be free..they really should be locked up and kept away..forever..

Chrissy I am sorry to hear that..That has to be very frustrating there..Regardless of where one is..child abuse is still abuse..wrong and they should be charged to the fullest extent..

People like this are just human scuzz..

We need to go back to stoning. Even that would be to good. I think every person should be allowed to stick a needle into every part of his body after they rip off all his nails pull out every tooth. Then let him stave to death. Then maybe people like will get the message. But we have a sick system that protects the bad and hurts the good. When are people really going to do something? I know if we fight back we are the terrorist. T

Too bad that the arresting police couldn't have found some way to execute this piece of 'S' at the time he was caught. I don't see the point in warehousing some weirdo like this because of the nature of his crime and the expense of his housing. Just get rid of him. He is not worthy of being called "human".

Some would argue that this girl should be FORCED to have this mans child and raise it, or her mother should..rather than having a choice about abortion in this kind of case.

What do you think?

Melva H (93)
Monday May 18, 2009, 5:12 pm
Well, Eric, since you asked, I'll tell you. There is not a man walking on this Planet who could force me to have his- or any other man's- child. It would be MY decision. Same goes for any female child I was responsible for: the child, the dr, and I would make the decision. No politician or preacher would take complete control and make a decision that would rule the pregnant female's life till her death, as well as having a dominate impact on the birth child.

Well said Melva .... this girl had NO CHOICE in what happened to her, so she has every right to have an abortion. No woman should "have" to relive the trauma of rape through pregnancy, even if adoption was an option.

We as a nation have failed our children. In Warren County Tennessee, our local paper, The Southern Standard, has been filled with story after sad story involving children. This year, one child was run over and killed while trying to board a school bus, whose stop signal lights were not working (the bus left the scene and the bus garage tried to fix the lights before the police could investigate), a3 year old girl and her 1 year old sister died in an apartment fire here, while the parents who should have taken them with them were at a neighbor's apartment. Two sweet little babies died in a fire, with no adult to even attempt to rescue them or offer words of comfort. (As soon as authorities were alerted to the fire, two police offices ran into the flaming apartment to rescue the children with a third attempting CPR on the girls once they were out of the building. They had died from the smoke before the police and firemen had come.) I cannot imagine what went through the minds of those blessings from God as their lives were being choked out. Cries for mama or daddy went unheard as they took their last smoke-filled breath. I've lost count on the number of kids that have been left in child car seats, while the "adult" left them and went in a store to shop. Some "adults" have been brought to court for their crimes, while sadly others have yet to be caught and their little precious is still being left un attended in cars, shopping carts , at home or wherever. Some year ago, two toddlers died as a result of being left in a vehicle for hours. The vehicle's inside temperature was way over 100 degrees which caused heat related death, while the mother partied in a motel room. When children, who weren't taught to respect life ("Anything goes!" is their motto. "Do as you please, no matter who gets hurt, especially unwanted children.") are out there having children, that new tike is destined for a hard life, if he or she is allowed to live it. Until we as "adults", or overgrown children, wake up and start caring for the children given into our care ( they are our children, whether we are related to them or not!), these heinous acts will continue. Hopefully the girl did not become pregnant so aborion as a topic won't need to be discussed by her family. They have had enough suffering.

Despite all the voices against God's message and messengers, stop and realize something, your mother didn't abort, regardless of the pregnancy.

I consider him a terrorist, so why isn't he in GITMO where he could be Iff'ed? If that's not feasible, he could serve as a punching bag for Mike Tyson.

Eric..thanks for the link..

If this child does get pregnant..under no circumstances should she ever be forced to have that baby..And I would hope who ever is either her parent/guardian would not force her to have the child..If that is the case..but it is yet to be determined..or at least publicly..

Bobby..You speak of so many atrocities against children..and I absolutely agree..however.. if you are even suggesting that if this child of 13 should be made to carry a baby from this scuzz that raped and tortured her..
well then you aren't very concerned about "her suffering"

I have a lot of concern for the suffering of this child and any abused or attacked individual including the "unwanted unborn" that are suffering through murder en mass as I type this. We need to do what is right and have to decide based on what we know is right. I would hope deciding to abort or to save an "unwanted unborn" doesn't come to this family or any reading this, but if it should, which is the greater suffering, carrying "an unwanted child" to term that could be adopted by someone that would love it, or living the rest of your life with the fact that a child was violently destroyed because its family didn't want it.

I hope that issue does not come up for this young girl as well..but if it does..I would hope her family would support her..and consider her well-being..NO 13 YEAR OLD CHILD SHOULD EVER BE FORCED TO BEAR A CHILD..

Thankfully most do not see it your way Bobby..

I find it heart breaking that so many people that claim to "Care2" have no trouble allowing the killing of unborn children, just because some one doesn't want those children. To say that unborn child deserves to die because it wasn't a planned child or a needed child is just as bigoted and narrow-minded as people claim gay-haters are or other groups that supposedly "force" their opinions on us by their voting rights. It is true that no 13 ( or 10, 11 or 12) year old should ever be force to bear a child. But regardless of the age of the bearer, what about the child in the womb fighting for the same life and rights? It is right for us to discriminate against them, and say that because you are unwanted and will be unloved, you are worthy of death? Similar thoughts were conveyed on the native Americans, when the whites came to our shores, stuck up their flags and said, "It's ours now. You can leave." Similar thought were conveyed to the wonderful people of the black community as they were put into slavery, then segregated afterward, as if they were a blight. They were no blight. The blight was the attitude of uncaring people that would not accept their right to exist, just as many (way too many) refuse to accept an unborn child's right to exist, for whatever reason. No, this rapist should not get away with this and should PAY PAY PAY. But are we not criminals ourselves when we attack (through abortion) an unborn child that has harmed no one, and only wants the same chance at life, love and liberty?

Bobby..really with all due respect..this news story is not about abortion..not about God..nor why don't you really try to stay on topic..and.. stop spewing your holier than thou attitude here..

This child has been raped..molested..tortured..and not only is she a 13 year old child who this never should have happened in the first place..but she is handicapped as well..And all you can discuss is what "you" think she should or should do..
You really should be ashamed of yourself..Step outside of yourself and your dogma for a moment and think about "THIS CHILD" And if you cannot think of THIS CHILD here..than perhaps you should move on already..
I am sure there are groups here at Care2 that you can entertain your thinking with..

I do care about "THIS CHILD". But since the truth is not what you want to hear (which is why people like this molester run rampant), I shall stop commenting.

Dee C (23)
Tuesday June 2, 2009, 11:18 pm
Are you saying this monster runs around raping young mentally handicapped girls because of abortion..which is all I see you saying here that its wrong..
That has nothing to do with this story let alone why this monster runs rampant..

And as far as any truth..what is truth to you is not always necessarily the truth to anyone else..or even the truth itself..

Dee, you have shown your Belief for Right by continuing to defend the 13-year-old handicapped child; she should not be forced to bear a child conceived by rape. Odd how many males say females should bear children conceived via rape. I say this is taking the 'sow your seed' theory WAY too far!!.....Question: Since the rape victim is a mentally handicapped child and the sire a criminal FREAK, how many LOVING people would line up to adopt the child?? Genes DO matter. It seems likely that if there is a child born of this paring, it would be placed in a setting where the chances of it being mistreated, perhaps- as too often happens- murdered after years of mistreatment- is high. Given the facts and shortcomings of 'human nature' there are worse things that happen to children than not being born at all.

Dee C (23)

I just find it so unbelievably ignorant to ever suggest a 13 year old child should bear a child..What is wrong with someone who says that..How selfish how arrogant and ignorant can anyone be for goodness sake..And a mentally handicapped child at that..Just sad and sickening..

Thank you Melva..
