Criminal Profiling Topic of the Day: "There is a reason they call your mouth a trap, Joran."

A while back I got a bit of flack because I suggested Kate McCann might do herself a favor if she just shut up. Some thought I was being rude. But shutting up is often the smartest thing to do: not just speaking carefully, or toning it down, but just shutting the hell up because opening one's mouth is a good way to let stuff come out that will get you in trouble and make you look bad.

Joran van der Sloot should have followed this bit of advice himself. He has been on Greta Van Susteran, he has been on "A Current Affair" (where I tore him to shreds because of the stupid statements he made and the behaviors he exhibited), and now he apparently has been chatting up someone who had a recording device attached...and he is in one heck of a barrel of hot oil (and I do rather enjoy the visual)which may well cost him his skin.

Apparently, a journalist, one Mr. Peter DeVries of Holland, has some sound bite of Joran admitting he had sex with Natalee Holloway (in spite of his Current Affair interview where he parroted Bill Clinton's lies), she somehow died thereafter (and I doubt of sheer happiness), and he disposed of her body with a little help from his friends.

Oops! Don't you hate it when you accidentally let the cat out of the bag, Joran? He could claim there was no cat in the bag, but now he has opened his mouth yet again and clearly admitted to the existence of the statements because he is claiming he lied (yet again) when he made them.

It is only a matter of forty-eight hours before we find out if Joran will be hauled back to Aruba to face the music. I surely hope this time the symphony gets a full performance.

I have never doubted Joran killed Natalee during a rape; she didn't want sex, he did. He pinned her down, she died of suffocation in the sand. Joran's homies helped him get rid of the evidence. The one thing you can say for sure is that Joran sure had great friends. I doubt he would have done the same if the situation had been reversed.

I can't wait for Sunday and it's not because the SuperBowl is airing. I want to see justice finally takes its course.

Boy, I hope you're right and Aruba is finally forced to lock up that arrogant POS. Every time they go through the motions and then release him, I feel the family is being raped again.

What's that they say about it being no fun to commit crime unless you can tell someone how you did it?

I'm hearing 20/20 Monday night will run this, after the Dutch program runs it Sunday.

There is some truth to the frustration about not being able to brag about one's "cool" crime...not exactly something you can chat about at a cocktail party. This is why often a killer might allude to a crime or talk about it in the third person. But, most of the time, they don't actually confess because they don't want to get nailed. Every once in a while their arrogance gets the better of them and Joran, being the superarrogant schmuck that he is, just slipped up and badly.

I gotta laugh at his statement that he lied and only told his friend what he wanted to hear. what kind of friend wants to hear you murdered someone? Either Joran is lying ::rolls eyes:: or he has creepy friends (well, that COULD be true....)::laughs::

So do you think Joran is ever going to be put away for this? It's seeming to me more and more than his father is obstructing justice or Joran would have been retained after the taping. I know nothing of Aruban politics, but I know in many small countries, the leaders are corrupt and Mafia-like and simply don't do what they don't want to, and I'm afraid this is the case here.

If he doesn't get got legally, somebody will eventually off him on general principles. I'm sure he will be looking over his shoulder the rest of his life.

Preraphazon said...

Yeah, but that's what they said about OJ, and he's still playing golf.

Preraphazon said...

The latest is though the prosecutor wants to re-arrest Joran, the judges, ahem, have ruled there is no new evidence and ruled out his confession because, get this, it isn't consistent with previous statements to police. Yeah. Anywhere but Aruba that would be considered more damning, not an excuse to exonnerate him. Must be nice when your daddy can get you out of anything.
