Greta Van Susteren Interview with Joran Van der Sloot, Part 1 (March 1, 2006)
VAN SUSTEREN: OK. OK. And were they acting like they had been drinking quite liberally and freely? Could you tell whether they were?
VAN DER SLOOT: I mean, yes, they were drinking liberally and freely, but I mean, I think they had every right to. I mean, they had graduated. They just finished their high school. You know, they’d just been Ã¢â‚¬” they’d finished their high school, and I think they had every right to come to Aruba and have Ã¢â‚¬” and you know, and celebrate their graduation. I mean, they worked for that their whole life. And I’ve met tons of people that do the same thing.
And I mean, one problem I might have seen with it is the drinking age in the United States is 21 and the drinking age in Aruba is 18. And you know, I’ve met a lot of people that when they’re Ã¢â‚¬” you know, whose parents don’t let them drink or do anything like that, and when they Ã¢â‚¬” you know, when they come to Aruba and they get a chance to drink, they go Ã¢â‚¬” you know, they go overboard, and that’s something that’s Ã¢â‚¬” that’s bad, something that shouldn’t happen.
Joran Van der Sloot just admitted the drinking age in Aruba was 18. Joran, you were how old when you were in Carlos N’ Charlies when you left with Natalee Holloway? You think its a bad thing when American female tourists come to Aruba and go overboard drinking? Really? Then why was it that you found it perfectly acceptable to order a 151 rum shot to a petite girl who obviously already had too much to drink?
“… you know, when they come to Aruba and they get a chance to drink, they go Ã¢â‚¬” you know, they go overboard, and that’s something that’s Ã¢â‚¬” that’s bad, something that shouldn’t happen.”
A bad thing. Spare us your noble concern. You do not think its a bad thing … in fact you pray on it occurring. You actually facilitated it with a 151 shot. Why else would you go to a bar 1/2 before closing if not to find theÃ‚ most helplessÃ‚ person in the group and separate her from her friends?
