      I will make it a priority to be there! I have donated and urge everyone else to do the same, whatever you can give, be sure to mark it either RECOVERY ( expenses for Natalee’s family to stay, other expenses) or REWARD

      Ms Croes stated in an interview tonight that Paul Van Der Sloot was being held as a Suspect in A PREMEDITATED MURDER as are the other 3 suspects and NO ONE picked up on it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      Larry Kings questions were out and out stupid tonight maybe he was LOADED ……….
      Micheal Cardoza you are an absolute asshole !!!!!!!!!!!!! Stating that the Boy should have kept his mouth shut talking as a Defense Lawyer…
      Bullshit…. Maybe you are looking to get hired in this case………..
      Sounds to me that Ms Croes spilt the beans ……………

      No body. The body was taken by the undertow and is now deep in the Atlantic. Wasn’t their a hurricane at the same time?

      The date rape drug / gang bang theory I’ve been reading on comments sounds a bit much.

      Does anyone have the cached Van Der Sloot website from Google that the father took offline ASAP?

      Correct me if Iam wrong, but how does money help the search for Natalee? I mean it is a task for the government, and they don’t need extra money do they?

    6. observer on June 24th, 2005 3:06 am

      CHECKME AND CRS, WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO SAY NOW!!!! All of you defenders of Juron’s family and of the kidnapping theory, how do you explain dad’s arrest. Is it only to fool the real kidnappers that the authorities are not on to them? Why would the VDS agree to have dad and son arrested only to play a game so that authorities don’t let the kidnappers know what;s up. ADMIT IT, YOU WERE WRONG! NO KIDANAPPING, NO HUMAN TRAFFICKING — JUST ROTTEN STINKY DUTCH CRIMINALS.

    7. Apollo on June 24th, 2005 3:21 am

      @ Observer : You idiot, the average comment was that you should wait before you judge and that the police will do what it has to do. Most of you said the police will not do his work etc. Typical American arrogance was spread on this forum. If the family did it they will burn in jail, Bubba will take care of that. Where do you live Observer ? Probably in the South ? And let me guess, your parents are brother and sister ?

    8. gare du nord on June 24th, 2005 3:24 am

      can you leave dutch out of your comment??? This is not a typically dutch
      pasttime but could have happened on any carribean island…..

    9. cousine on June 24th, 2005 3:53 am

      @ Observer : Seen this ?
      Missing Adults Statistics
      According the Federal Bureau of Investigation, National Crime Information Center (NCIC) there are 47,842 active missing adult cases, with 30,622 missing adults missing one year or more (as of 7/30/04).
      According to another one of your beauties…the CIA World Factbook the population of the USA was 295,734,134 (July 2005 est.)
      Because most probably maths is not your strongest point as is to the most of your trailer scum…let me explain…..THIS MEANS THAT APPROX ONE OUT OF 6200 OF YOUR CITIZENS IS MISSING……….Who do you blame for that you little $$$$???
      On an island of 75.000 inhabitants ONE person is MISSING…unless you know more of course that she has been murdered…..Jumping to conclusions (= lying right through your teeths) is a strong point for Americans…that’s why you arrogant %$#@s are running around the whole world, not knowing in which country and surroundings you are …Iraq..Afganistan and get killed over there left right centre.
      So think first before you open that big hole in your face….people could realise that you are actually brain dead.

    10. ben on June 24th, 2005 3:58 am

      and damn the USA media circus !
      people are being slaughterd in Iraq for the benefit of oil…
      millions are dying of hunger !
      this is just a thing to distract you all !
      and do the thing they’re best at !

      create a worlsociety of general FEAR !
      so you will be open to all kind of manipulations,
      and think the gov. has the best interest for you .. but think again !

      ” …if you make em all scared they will follow like dogs … ”
      probably a line in the ‘Ruling America 101′

      off course not, they didn’t look in their backyard :D

    12. Rekel on June 24th, 2005 5:37 am

      Whoa everybody, obsever might be stupid but please don’t judge ALL americans on that. Otherwise you’re just as stupid.

    13. King of Controversy (Holland) on June 24th, 2005 5:42 am

      We don’t judge all Americans for that, only the majority. It’s a democratic principle ;)
      Are there any real Americans online btw?

    14. SuperG on June 24th, 2005 5:45 am

      See who MOST AMERICANS voted for president

    15. Kakbouter on June 24th, 2005 5:48 am

      How many people disappear in the US, each year?
      Why so much hassle around a missing girl?!?!

      OK, first, i do not agree or what so ever with what happen to the girl, but isnt it (at least a bit) over reacted?

      Now, were asked to donate and wear stupid yellow/pink wristbands… pfff…..

      If the citizens of the US would wear every physical sign for all missing persons, we rather wouldnt have any war in the world anymore. e.g. Ever seen a soldier banged up with collorfull signs? LMAO!

    16. Kakbouter on June 24th, 2005 5:49 am

      BTW; I’m dutch and not a killer. I only do grass ;)

      Hoewel ik mezelf gisterenavond/nacht incontinent heb gelachen om jullie, zullen we het vandaag een beetje tam houden?

      It’s only Observer who is talking out of his arse here…. (for now that is…).

    21. King of Controversy (Holland) on June 24th, 2005 5:58 am

      @ vander F
      Dus iedereen is flink opgewarmd zodra de USA-ers hun bed uitkomen. Kan nog leuk worden.

    25. vander F on June 24th, 2005 6:12 am

      God has left our country years ago usa today.
      Emigrated to the US I guess…

    26. geitenneuker on June 24th, 2005 6:14 am

      The American people are OK. ( most of them )
      Unfortunetely it is the government wich is f*cking up the country together with the media.
      When you follow the people for a couple of years you can see that they slowly being “brainwashed”. You can not blame the people for that.
      it is the government end the media…

    27. King of Controversy (Holland) on June 24th, 2005 6:15 am

      @ Usa today
      God has absolutly no authorithy in Holland. Like the Franch say: God created the world, but the dutch created Holland.

      @Usa today
      Mind your own business and better pray for yourself and your fellow trailer people…
      and to add to Super G comments : As far as I know the american people pray only for the dollar….that’s why they HAVE to go to war every time….

      Although, the posts do not merit comment, the attitude does, for tthe Dutch people (or those who are claiming to be Dutch) need to realize just what impression they are giving of their country. First of all, this board is about a missing young woman, not about venting your jealous rage about the US, nor your political views. Your manners are atrocious. I am appalled, however, I am also stunned. Up til now the few Dutch people I had met had seemed ok. However, you “bloggers” (or should I say trolls) are the sickest, most perverted people I have ever come across in my life! Before you speak you should think about the image of your country that you are putting forth. So far, it has been a VERY ugly one. Frankly, I’m not TOO concerned about what image you have construed about my country, nor do I contest some of your points. However, the facts in this case are: Two Dutch nationals have been arrested as prime suspects in the disappearance and probably murder of a missing young lady. There are many indications that she may have been drugged. If she willingly got into a car (which looked like a taxi), it was NOT with total strangers. The Arubans taut how safe their country is, then blame someone for getting in a car with their “safe” citizens! How hypocritical. Yes, the upbringing or better said, LACK of upbringing and restraints put on Joran (yes, the liberal Dutch attitude of the parents) has obviously contributed greatly to this whole sad affair. Now, just be good little Dutch, accept the fact that something is wrong in the land of the Dutch. Get busy fixing it! What’s wrong? 1) Permissive lifestyle where perversion is a way of life and is taught to the young kids. 2) Sending corrupt judges to their “Colonies”. (I thought that concept was supposed to have gone out with Colonialism.) 3) Quit your bellyaching!

      Great, you start off quit reasonable and end with a flame.

    42. DUTCH on June 24th, 2005 7:06 am

      @ Tideroller.

      Shut the #### up.
      Have you ever seen american teens on vacation? I know I have.
      I have personally been to Carlos and Charlies a few time (bar where Natalee was last seen)
      You see young amirican girls gettin on stage gettin totally drunk flashing the public and so on. I can count on the fingers on one hand hw manu tiomes i have seen a Dutch or a Aruban girl to this.

      Another examble…even closer to home.
      Have you ever visited Amsterdam?
      American graduates lie to the parents that they are goin to the so popular “European excursions” They only place they go is Amsterdam to get STONED.

      So much for the good old Amrican parenting

    43. kolonel.klootoog on June 24th, 2005 7:14 am

      @ tideroller
      frankly my dear, i don’t give a a —-. i don’t care how you or you fellow countrymen and -women view the netherlands. if affairs like these would stop the whole lot of you to come to amsterdam to persue the various acts that you blame us for teaching our children, i.e. heavy drinking, drug abuse, prostitution i would be dancing on the streets and would sing, sing, sing and dace some more.
      talking about upbringing, or the lack of upbringing. i can remember a couple of drama’s where parents of misbehaving american kids should have been taking full responcabibblety (i *hate* typing the effin word) for some of the serious crimes that theyre children commited, instead they blamed rock music. how’s that for hypocrytical?
      furthermore, if she hadn’t got in the car (one of the first things a dutch kid learns is never to take from, go with or talk to people he or she doesn’t know. our liberal system seems to brieed kiddiefuckers bij the thousands, so there is a threat every where, go ask the dutchies you know what TBS means and how it doesn’t function) we wouldn’t be in this mess in the first place and your twisted and absurdly perverted media machine would have been focused on something vile and twisted closer to home, the texan teen fucking a dog to death maybe.

    44. Minister Pechtold on June 24th, 2005 7:14 am

      No it is not. It is about an american girl lost between scary foreigners. And those scary foreigners always do things the brave, honest and true believing americans would never do! Let’s pray!

    45. vander F on June 24th, 2005 7:21 am
    46. Draaideur on June 24th, 2005 7:24 am

      You’re abso-f-lutely right! What were we thinking? Liberal upbringings, teaching respect for everyone regardless of their way of life to our children, how COULD we? How fortunate the UN hasn’t started an embargo against us yet!

      On account on our drug-policy; it’s fucking working. When you take a look at drug-users in Holland, and the US in percentages of the entire population (not counting tabacco and alcohol), the US wins by far.

      When I got to the US, and told ppl I was Dutch, they immediatly assumed I was using dope. Besides that, they thought The Netherlands was quite near Amsterdam………good education you guys got there!

      Aruba isn’t a colony, it’s part of Holland, much like ur United States are independant states, under one government. Slightly different system, but still, if they want they can, but they don’t want to (numerous DEMOCRATIC referenda about that).

      Perverted lifestyle? I never heard of a Dutch 17-yr old kid raping a dog and molesting 2 small children………..or 2 16-yr olds bringing fully automatic machineguns to their highschool and use their fellowstudents as targetpractice…………………

      Natalee Holloway was a blonde slut who got what she was asking for, nothing more, nothing less.

    47. FlyingDutchman on June 24th, 2005 7:25 am

      @ tideroller

      Why are you opposing the way some people post comments on this board and then in the end of your comment do exactly the same (?!).

      It’s no secret, that there’s something terribly wrong in the Netherlands. But this has, for the greater part, nothing to do with our upbringing. I guess confronting your kids, with what’s going on in the world is preferable to denying the truth through censorship.
      The biggest problems in the Netherlands lies in its politics (and the history of it).

      In your opinion, the Dutch are all perverts. Who is the biggest manufacturer of pornographic material in the world? Wich country has the biggest percentage of child-pregnancies in the world? Who has the highest murderrate in the world?
      And you tell us we are perverts. You reflect your own domestic shortcommings to the rest of the world to glorify the cestpool you’re living in yourself.

      To get on-topic. All the things you stated is just hear-say. There is no evidence to prove it. And that’s the biggest problem with people like yourself. Indoctrinated by your government and your government controlled media you follow your leaders blind. The brainwash you with threats of terrorism and because you are all in the grip of fear, you can’t look at thing rationally anymore.

      Might be funny to know, that the Dutch government is trying to implement this American system in the Netherlands. Unfortunately the Dutch don’t seem to be impressed by the threats of war and terrorism.

    48. Draaideur on June 24th, 2005 7:28 am

      sorry mam

    49. brutus on June 24th, 2005 7:29 am

      Draaideur, you’re totally right. American should look to themselves, before always pointing to the rest of the world…

      I do nothing wrong, really. OK, so I lied a few times, but hey, I’m still a nice guy. Party at my place!

    53. tideroller on June 24th, 2005 7:43 am

      With the exception of one poster, the rest of you merely proved my case in point, I am sad to say, as I had truly hoped that some nice, rational, polite Dutch would appear. Please, come out, speak up! Do not let these crass, rude, narrow-minded people speak for your country! And as for the above posters: Think before you speak. Count to ten. Then maybe you can post a little more rationally. As for the fellow that said ” the blonde ___ deserved what she got.” You are a sicko who deserves no comment. However, I would remind you that even the lowest prostitute (of which it appears there are many in Holland) has not lost his/her rights. NO ONE deserves what happened to Natalee. Natalee was a brilliant, highly achieving young lady. Her morals have not been brought into question. It may interest you to know, however, that in the South, people are known to be friendly and outgoing. However, it would be “provincial and ignorant” for someone to mistake friendliness for anything else.

    54. Urine Van der poop on June 24th, 2005 7:45 am

      Is it safe to come out yet?

    55. Bunt on June 24th, 2005 7:46 am

      Praise the Lord and send me the money.

    56. Bunt on June 24th, 2005 7:50 am


      It takes one to know one.

    57. Draaideur on June 24th, 2005 7:51 am

      for someone who deserves no comment, you spend alot of words on lil ol’ me :D

      Besides, all I was pointing out was that when ur hanging with the wrong crowd, these kind of things happen. Regardless of what her future might have been. Her morals are being brought into the question because those morals (or lack of) brought her and her family into this situation.
      I’m sorry she’s lost or even murdered, but there are two things I don’t understand;
      THOUSANDS of American ppl go missing on a yearly basis, what’s so fucking special about her? (as I pointed out in a earlier post)
      Why are the US ppl so fucking judgemental about the Dutch all of a sudden? Without the Dutch, you wouldn’t even exist, moron! Without the Dutch, ur precious slavery (the prime reason US is one of the biggest economic powers in the world) wouldn’t have worked out.

      Americans are great people, most of them just miss one quality; to see their own mistakes……..

    58. vander F on June 24th, 2005 7:52 am

      Prostitution is a legal bussiness In the Netherlands, hence they have the same rights as any entrepeneur.
      and you are right about the sick ‘jokes’, but the whole Natalee thing popped up on some Dutch blogs, big blogs, so there you have our share of morons mooning on a couple of US blogs.
      We’ll move on for the next ‘thing’ in a couple of day’s.
      But don’t hold your breath, relax and ignore.
      Or flame back, but that will stir up the fire.

    70. Johan on June 24th, 2005 8:24 am

      I apologize for the behavior of my fellow countrymen (or should I say spoiled little kids?) on this board. The majority of people in the US and Holland are fine, hard-working, decent people. Don’t let a few rotten apples give you a bad idea of this country. Also, the NH case with the arrest of Mr. VDS was the number 1 news item here this morning. Most normal people here do care and we hope that this will soon be over for the Holloways.

    71. tideroller on June 24th, 2005 8:29 am

      Oh my Gosh. I’ve read about identity stealers, but had no idea these touchy, rude and crass trollers would stoop that low! Tom and Red, time to reign in these Dutch trollers. First of all, I have no idea what an “Anal -T” is, but I have an idea, it’s something that wouldn’t interest me anyway. Second, in no posting of mine have I ever used profanity, so the above two “tideroller says” postings have nothing whatsoever to do with me. Please check their IPs, they need to be blocked. Thanks.

    72. Proud 2B Dutch on June 24th, 2005 8:29 am

      The Justice department of the Dutch Kingdom (including the one from Aruba) is different from the one of USA. You may find this on Aruba totally strange, but there are some facts to remember:

      - We NEVER expose the last name of any suspect.
      - During ANY investigation only a few facts will be published to public.
      - Every suspect is innocent UNTIL proven otherwise.
      - Clear Pictures of suspects are NOT allowed.
      - Every suspect has the right for an attorney.
      - We do NOT have Republic or Democratic judges. A judge is NEVER related to politics.

      At THIS very moment, one of our most famous soccer players (Robin van Persie @ http://edition.cnn.com/2005/SPORT/football/06/16/arsenal.vanpersie.reut/index.html) is held in custody for raping an 21 year old girl. Everyone knows this soccer player who plays in the UK. And as stated earlier, only a few fact are brought to the media (officially we still do not know the name of this girl). During investigation, there are NO comments on this rape and his attorney is the ONLY one who may visit him in jail. We do not have a situation like the Michael Jackson trial. Cameras in court are rare.

      Johan – Thanks! You have restored my faith in the Dutch people. As I have said, before this board, I had only met nice, caring, polite, family-oriented people from Holland. The trolls on this board have left me stunned.

      Except the name of the so-called raped Miss ….. of the Prins of Persie it IS known.

      so let me get this straight; anyone who disagrees with your point of view should be flamed, and be called a troll for reacting to that?
      Good to know, now I know why the US can’t go for 10 years without having at least one war……….
