Watch Joe Tacopina Lose his Mind on Fox … “The Line Up” Discussing Natalee Holloway case


 Me thinks thou dost protest too much …

Read the Partial Summary of comments made from The Line Up with Kimberly Guilfoyle (12/3/06)

Joe Tacopina was obviously glued to his TV watching the Line Up. Joe Tacopina 1

Listen to Attorney Joe Tacopina lose his mind on National TV … how professional.

 So Joe Tacopina calls Jossy Mansur a buffoon, how professional.

So its fact because Joe Tacopina says it … right. Tacopina, why don’t you discuss the “fact” of what the original search warrant of the Van der Sloot property looked like and who altered that warrant. Why don’t you comment Joe why your client likes to “fauxtoshop” pics. You are so busy trying to spin stories about others character, why don’t you talk about your own clients?

Another fact … Tacopina you got a civil law suit dismissed in NYC not on fact or evidence, but on jurisdictional issues … Please do not spin … who is fact challenged? I hardly think you really want to deal with the facts. If that were the case you would not need to get law suits thrown out on technicalities, rather than the facts.

You will discuss the issues in an intelligent manner? Maybe you will not duck interviews with certain individuals at that point as well.

      hehehe…go Joe! I think that he just about busted something and he even made the dogs bark!!

      So, Joe, Natalee OD’d, died, and hid herself so well that she was never to be seen again, not a trace…..errrr…right. Nice try.

    2. JusticeforNatalee on December 4th, 2006 11:35 am

      Joe is full of fast talk and hot air.

      NO substance.

    3. Scared Monkeys on December 4th, 2006 11:37 am

      So its only fact if Joe Tacopina says so …

      Maybe Joe would like to explain the limited search warrant. Wonder if he would allow such a thing to happen if it was his side who this happened to.

      So Joe … when you don’t like the message … go after the messenger, right.

    5. mac on December 4th, 2006 11:48 am

      My only question is how did this buffoon win the case in New York? Couldn’t the judge see thru this a$$ hole?

    6. Nut44x4 on December 4th, 2006 11:52 am

      Hey Joe…..what is the difference between Immette St. Guillen and Natalee… has an actual body and one does not. SO WHAT…..a crime took place in BOTH…..HELLO JOE….you cannot see this?

    7. Minnesota Dad on December 4th, 2006 12:06 pm


      My guess is that if you did a few ‘googles’ regarding Tacopina and the NY Bar you would find not only is he an active member, but also does a lot of ‘pro bono’ stuff to make the bar look good.

      What does this do and how does it translate to how he could win in NY? The our legal system is not the picture of the blindfolded ‘lady justice’ holding the balanced scale….it is about buttering up to judges, holding cocktail parties and inviting Hollywood folks who are in town as well as your favorite judges, it is about doing deeds on the backside knowing that a judge might give you a little assistance somewhere down the road.

      As you have seen, it is a light form of corruption. Little bribes and old boys clubs.

      Aruba is no different. The biggest difference is that they are doing this at a much high playing level. An American Tourist is murdered and government actors all cover – including judicial, law enforcement and elected officials.

      Joe Taco knows this. He has friends in the NY courts. Buy a cocktail or two at the bar for a judicial intern and you may just get some advance notice of what the judge is going to do on your case (seeing that most judge’s are too lazy to write their own orders!)…..may allow you to adjust your motions.

      Buying people off works in America and Aruba…..That is how Joe Taco won his case….its called ‘Home Cooking’ to those in the legal business. md

    8. MIss-Underestimated on December 4th, 2006 12:09 pm

      So Natalee od’d killed herself, then what just like Pitbull.

      This is crazier than crazy. BTW lawyers do have touch of morality, a local lawyer I know here has decided to stop defending drunk drivers…..his neice was killed by a drunk driver last year.

    9. Sahara on December 4th, 2006 12:10 pm

      #5, Joe didn’t “win” the case in New York. It didn’t go to trial. It was a long shot, anyway.

    10. bc on December 4th, 2006 12:18 pm

      His comment about Beth Hollaway was uncalled for & I don’t know how it managed to slip by our lovely hostess. I really wish he’d been on camera–my guess is that he was foaming at the mouth.

    11. JusticeforNatalee on December 4th, 2006 12:18 pm

      Joe thinks if he blusters long enough and loud enough people will believe him.

      WRONG, JOEY!

    12. Scared Monkeys on December 4th, 2006 12:20 pm

      When one cannot stand on the facts of a case for guilt or innocence, they go after the technicality.

      If Joe Tacopina thinks his client Joran Van der Sloot is so innocent and the facts are on his side … then fly Joran to either AL or MS and lets have a trial is a place where jurisdiction is no issue.

      Then you can argue the merits of the case.

      What say you … Joe? You game? WE ARE.


    13. JusticeforNatalee on December 4th, 2006 12:21 pm

      My question about Carlo is this:

      Why didn’t he resign from the case if it bothered him to defend Joran?

    14. MIss-Underestimated on December 4th, 2006 12:23 pm

      Well lets see if JQK has any retort to the allegation that Beth’s Fabrication.

      What is the definition of class? Armani Suits?

      Wow what any angry man.

      Red how come they didn’t search the entire residence?
      Why was that changed minutes before the search?

    15. Scared Monkeys on December 4th, 2006 12:26 pm

      The other rather obvious question is … Where is Carlo? The Aruban witness protection program?

      Why does Carlo need Tacopina to be his delivery boy? Tacopina … a mouth piece for a mouth piece.

      If Carlo was so steadfast in his denial of what is being stated, then come out with it yourself on TV and face the questions.

      So Antonio … are you telling us that no piece of paper exists with you telling  KJ what is being accused of you? REALLY? Wan’t to go on the record yourself as stating that?

      Are you sure?


    16. MIss-Underestimated on December 4th, 2006 12:30 pm

      Was Joe in the room with Carlos and Karin? How does he know what was said?

      I think Joe is mad at De Vries and has mis-directed anger.

    17. MommyTraveler on December 4th, 2006 12:35 pm

      I remember from some TV interview that Anita said emphatically that the entire property, including the well and residence, had been searched. It appears now, she also was lying. What a farce. That entire property needs to be scraped off and every particle examined. The Dutch need to execute a search of the entire property now – it is amazing what can sometimes be found. There’s a body and/or clothing there somewhere – my money’s on it. They Sloots are obviously afraid that something will be found. I sure would not want to live on a property where there was a person buried. Some day, one of them will talk. The secrecy will drive them over the edge. It usually does.

    18. JusticeforNatalee on December 4th, 2006 12:35 pm

      Joe can’t handle what De Vries has uncovered.

    19. airgame12 on December 4th, 2006 12:41 pm

      From my lawyer friends, once they stopped laughing at Taco.

      He displays the manner of a attorney that knows that he has been duped by his client and that he is in danger of his case crashing down around him. The outburst’s are both part anger because of being duped and knowing that people are laughing at him, and also to try to confuse whom ever might be paying attention. But as we always say, and Chuch Noll said it first in 1976……..Talk is cheap…..empty barrels make the most noise.

      Conclusion……Taco is a empty 55 gallon drum!

    20. vicki on December 4th, 2006 12:44 pm

      taco joe needs anger management classes. Maybe Urine and him can go together. How does he sleep at night. Taco Joe, be careful what comes out of that gutter you call a mouth, what goes around comes around. I see you have a few daughters….Karma is a real _itch.

    21. Frank on December 4th, 2006 12:45 pm

      Tacopina is a distraction. It’s still about the murdering and raping van der sloots. He takes energy off the target.It never feels worth it to trash him, and I’ve tried, he’s too much of a buffoon for such a serious scary situation. Joran van der sloot will kill again, it’s just a matter of time.

      They premeditated, raped, killed and destroyed Natalee.

    22. Richard on December 4th, 2006 12:48 pm

      There’s a saying in the legal world, something to this effect:

      When you have the facts, pound the facts.
      When you have the jury, pound the jury.
      When you have neither, pound the table.

      I didn’t see the talk show, but it sounds to me, from the comments above, that Tacopino chose to do the last of these.

      Unfortunately, many TV talk shows seem to thrive on people who foam at the mouth. Long on oration and controversy, but little on substance. Did anyone try to pin Tacopino down on facts, or was he just allowed to rant?

    23. vicki on December 4th, 2006 12:52 pm

      1906, Im so glad you are ok.We have been praying for you.

    24. Richard on December 4th, 2006 12:54 pm

      So according to what is posted, Jossy Mansur made a videotape of his interview with Dompig. Two guesses as to what the latter will say if confronted with such a tape:


      Always a lie handy on Aruba.

    25. JusticeforNatalee on December 4th, 2006 1:12 pm

      Kim should have hung up on Joe
      and treated him like a prank call!

    26. Sahara on December 4th, 2006 1:15 pm

      I had a friend that is a State Judge listen to it and he said that it sounds like the water is getting too warm for Joe’s comfort.

    27. JusticeforNatalee on December 4th, 2006 1:27 pm


      We can see right through your huffing and puffing.

      You are AFRAID!

    28. molly on December 4th, 2006 1:30 pm

      Joe has burned his own Tacos. Eeeewww, smells really bad.

    29. Sharon Chicago on December 4th, 2006 1:38 pm

      Kimberly should have pulled the plug on his rattling on and on…he sounded like a Oster 500 blender on full speed…with his misfacts and mistruth statements…
      Joe why not try selling Bass-O-Matics instead!!

    30. Sharon Chicago on December 4th, 2006 1:39 pm

      Joe I bet you reached for a box of Twinkies when you were through! Just a little “comfort food” to hold you over…

    34. MIss-Underestimated on December 4th, 2006 1:55 pm

      Mommy…Why would Anita need to lie about that? Unless you are hiding something.

      20. Birds of the feather.

      When you have the facts and can prove them there is no reason to get so angry. I would have liked to have been in that studio after that talk.

      Kimberly needs to take control of her show, why was Joe allowed to flambast Beth, can anyone recall Beth talking smack about Joe?

      So was Joe is the room with Karin and Carlos or what?

    35. Meee on December 4th, 2006 2:31 pm

      That’s the problem, with having Joe T on. He rants and raves. And no one calls him on what he says. He’s like a bull in a china shop. And the hosts let him run wild. Wether he’s right or wrong.

    36. justice4nat on December 4th, 2006 2:43 pm

      Joe Taco…..we don’t believe your “spin” when you simply speak. Yelling and screaming your “spin” makes YOU look like the buffoon you think Jossy is. If you truly believe Joran (aka Little OJ) is innocent, then you should be able to CALMLY state your PROOF which shows your client and the other stooges are innocent. If you had proof of Joran’s alleged innocence – then you wouldn’t have had the NY case thrown out on a TECHNICALITY!! If Joran was so innocence, subject matter jurisdiction wouldn’t have mattered. BUT…if your client is as guilty as sin, Lawyering 101 says that you can’t let him on the stand to be deposed!

      Your remark about Beth was totally uncalled for. Beth and her entire family have been through enough and shouldn’t be subjected to your hateful remarks.

      If you have a conscience – which I doubt – ask yourself this…

      How would you feel if one of your daughters was missing?

      How would you feel if someone like Joran was the last one seen with your daughter?

      How would you feel if said he left your daughter “on the beach” because that’s what she wanted – yet you KNEW that was a lie and there was so much more that he wasn’t telling?

      How would you feel when the government spokeperson said your daughter “just vanished”?

      How would you feel if at every turn, efforts to find your daughter were blocked by a corrupt (or lazy) government that’s only interested in covering up for one of the good old boys sons, rather than accepting help from experienced investigators such as the FBI, who could have most likely solved the case?

      How would you feel having to hear this same government AND the lawyer that represents the suspect defame your missing daughter?

      Just a little something for you to think of while you’re petting your dog.

    37. on December 4th, 2006 2:44 pm

      #5. Amazing the comments you make just becuase an attorney takes a case?
      Hes actually quite an accomplished attorney

    38. WorldJOURNIER on December 4th, 2006 2:54 pm

      Hi Everyone…. The way we look at TACO@joseph is; if TACO is nervous, his clients, the Prime & Former Murder Suspects SLOOT’s-of-the ditch, are, immeasurably, even more nervous! :)

      The Natalee Holloway Timeline of Persons, Known Crimes Suspects & Outright Lies

    39. MIss-Underestimated on December 4th, 2006 2:56 pm

      Yes he accomplished looking like a man that has seen this case is now beyond his total control. Mr. DeVries may be the match for the sloots and Mr. Tacopina.

      What a slap in the face when someone from the Homeland now questions the case and is set out to prove the homeland son(s) may have been involved in the Natalee Holloway murder. Even to the point of saying the scene of the crime was the Sloots residence, which by the way was NOT ever searched. I bet that is where all that anger is rooted. Then to accuse Beth Twitty of fabrication. Over here we call that grasping for straws.

    40. Robots on December 4th, 2006 2:56 pm

    47. Pearl on December 4th, 2006 4:46 pm

      I’d like to commend the barking dog who seemed to vociferously object at the conclusion of Mr. T’s phone interview with K. G. after Mr. T suggested that no evidence exists in the case of Natalee Holloway.

      Contrary to Mr. T’s belief, there are these real truths which apparently the dog knows about:


      NGUYEN: Now, does that cause a question in your mind? Because we have a confession, but now you’re saying there’s no search in any particular area.
      Is that because maybe this confession doesn’t detail where Natalee may be…?

      CNN, June 11, 2005.


      David Cruz, a spokesman for the Aruban Minister of Justice told FOX News Natalee Holloway, who was on vacation with friends with a graduation trip when she disappeared, was CONFIRMED DEAD and that AUTHORITIES KNEW the LOCATION OF HER BODY.

    51. airgame12 on December 4th, 2006 4:59 pm

      Brought over from BFN…..

      DIARIO Editorial:

      An element called Tacopina

      Last night, the attorney who is representing Joran in the US found it appropriate to explain, in a lowly way, that I am prejudiced against Joran because his father was in the team who handed over a few members of my family to the US.

      There’s another element who does not know how to read Papiamento and has no notion what I have said about Joran. I have said on various occasions that I don’t know whether he is guilty or innocent! Furthermore, I don’t have any sort of prejudice against Joran or his father! I had no ide! that Paul could have been in any commission which judged who is part of my family. That’s news to me!

      Joe Tacopina, with his witchy style of bring things forward, forcing a conclusion which doesn’t exist, wants to defend a habitual, chronic liar, who has a confirmed history of violence.

      Joran was known in his school as a kid who bullied younger kids; he was described by a teacher as a habitual liar; he was caught with his hands in the lockers of other kids; he was under treatment for his inability to control his anger and the violent part of his character; he was gambling for money in a casino, at an age where it is prohibited to set foot in a casino, and a few times accompanied by his father!

      Into what sort of ‘saint’ does Tacopina want to turn Joran? He doesn’t know that Joran lied that Deepak came to pick him up at the beach, and when Deepak stood up and said that it’s not true, he then changed to saying it was Satish. When Satish also stood up and said that it wasn’t true, he left the question hanging, and it will be good of Tacopina, in his great wisdom, to explain to us how Joran arrived at his house in the morning hours, with or without shoes!

      Another point which Tacopina, in his febrile attempt to defend his client, does not take into account is the following: how Deepak could have come to pick up Joran at the beach, if Joran declared to 4 Police officers on the 13 of June 2005 that Deepak was with him at the beach, that Deepak went back towards the girl, where he had left her sleeping on the sand, and that he believes that Deepak raped and then killed the girl? Tacopina can be a good attorney, but in this case he is far from home!

      And how does Tacopina explain the fact that Joran told Police that they had sex with Natalee when she was coming in and out of consciousness, and then on television he said that because he did not have a prophylactic he didn’t have sex with her! Who does Tacopina take us for?

      For idiots? A 17-year-old kid with only one thing on his mind, is going to miss such an opportunity because he has no protection? And Tacopina believes Joran when he told Greta that he NEVER had sexual relations with a girl without using a condom? Come now, Mister Tacopina, give us at least a little more consideration and stop insulting our intelligence!

      Tacopina also forgets, perhaps voluntarily?. That his client admitted to Police that they took Natalee to his apartment from Carlos and Charlies! How could he be at his apartment with Natalee and at the same time on the beach with her? It would be good for Tacopina to explain to us the mathematics of the timeline, because in our mathematics, you cannot be in two different places at the same time!

      On one hand, I enjoyed Tacopina, because he made me laugh with his ridiculous statements. If in reality he is an attorney interested in the truth, he would not be planting so many lies which could even compete with those of his client.

      Finally (for now) how does Tacopina explain the concrete fact that his client was the last one who was with Natalee at the time that she disappeared and suddenly, he doesn’t know what happened to her?

      Was there magic involved? Tacopina believes that Yomanda, Negro Felipe or Maria Lionza could have been involved? Because it is impossible that Joran doesn’t know what happened to Natalee if he was the last person who was with Natalee in his apartment, or on the beach, like he has admitted on so many occasions!

      The types of expressions out of Tacopina do not seem those of a serious person, and even less of those of an attorney who believes in the truth.

      It could be his duty to defend his client, whether he believes he is guilty or innocent, but let it be done in a professional way, acknowledging Joran’s multiple lies, and not trying to reduce them to only two, like he tried to do last night! If he wants, I can explain how many lies and changing stories Joran offered Police. We are very well aware of everything!

    52. Richard on December 4th, 2006 5:05 pm

      Maybe the dog, unlike the attorney, had some moral scruples remaining. Of the two, I’d be more likely to attribute such things to a dog.

      Glad to hear you’re doing better, 1906.

      OH JOE when the fire gets hot in the kitchen its time to get out!! And its going to get hotter, the truth is about to come out of the oven!! Joran & pimps are going down in flames, down to the ring of fire!! I think Joe must have felt the heat as hot as he was getting!

    54. Roy on December 4th, 2006 5:17 pm

      Looks like, “Hate the lawyer, Hate the client” … So who is paying this clown to represent the Sloots… Posner, Jossy, Mamana, a bunch of rich Dutch kids parents… all of which want them (sloots) 6″ under and this case disposed of in all it’s fantastic and incredible lies. And w/o the benefit of further prosecution… Seems reckless, misleading, and dishonest to me.

    55. Allan K on December 4th, 2006 5:34 pm

      Does Joe think if he talks faster and louder, ranting raving, he is going to make believers out of people? Joe needs to get some control over those dogs then talk about this case in a normal tone instead of a raving lunatic.

    56. Page on December 4th, 2006 5:56 pm

      Joe T. disgusts me as well at Joran. I think both of them enjoy all of this attention. All Joe T. can do is talk LOUD, FAST and TRY to spin things. EVERYONE who has been following this case can see right through his B.S.!!

    57. Skyboxx on December 4th, 2006 6:04 pm

      Wonder what Joe pays for that Hairdo? Other than wanting to show that mop off to a national TV audience, why else is he going on the idiot tube? Er scatch that, I may have my answer.

    58. Skyboxx on December 4th, 2006 6:11 pm

      Post -#31, Unbeleivable you posted the whole phone book.

      What would mama Kalpoe do, if we called her tonight and asked what the boys were up to? What the Kalpoes were planning to do for the holidays and such?

      Be right back, I might call and ask …………

    59. Skyboxx on December 4th, 2006 6:15 pm

      Yo’ Mama Kalpoe, check out post number 38. If you turn in the boys (or have your uncle’s cousin do it) you may collect up to 1 million smakeroo’s.

      People of Aruba, wake up! There is reward money out there for the return of NH or her remains.

      I say put pressure on the Kalpoes, they had NO life before this and will certainly have no life after this. Paulus can’t keep paying for your silence. Wake up, pick up a phone, call now, operators are standing by. Make a confession before its too late.

    60. Skyboxx on December 4th, 2006 6:26 pm

      Hurrah! Hurrah!

      We’ll give him a hearty bronx cheer and then
      Hurrah! Hurrah!
      The men will cheer and the boys will shout
      The ladies they will all turn out

      And we’ll all feel good when the Sporter comes crashing down.

      Successfully represented Dutch teen, Joran van der Sloot, and his father, Paulis van der Sloot, in litigation surrounding the disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba. Or so Taco says on his web site!!

      On Taco’s web site. (Successfully represented Dutch teen, Joran van der Sloot, and his father, Paulis van der Sloot, in litigation surrounding the disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba.) Taco did not successfully respresent JVDS. The case never went to trial. Nice spin to get business and make him look like a big man on campus. And why is Taco still representing the VDS’s? Game over in the U.S. No reason to represent them here. What an a$$.

      As much as I hate Taco I do think he is a good attorney. If I ever got into trouble I would love to have him on my side. Attorney’s like him ,J. Cochren, and F. Lee Bailey are all the same . Good attorney’s but for all the wrong reasons.

      Jude, jude, jude – of course he was successful in representing JPVDS. The suit sought to establish New York as the city of jurisdiction and compel Paulus and Joran to testify in the case. A New York judge needed to agree with the jurisdictional claim. She did not. That would be called winning.
      BTW – maybe if JQK actually argued the case in front of the judge, rather than having someone else do it while he sat there and looked pretty, it might have been a different outcome.

      Considering that Joran van der Sloot is still officially a suspect (we haven’t heard differently from Aruba yet), this klutz’s preening of himself on his Web site seems to be a bit premature, to say the least.

      #57 Skyboxx – hopefully not more than what a quart of oil costs — $1.10?

    68. mac on December 4th, 2006 8:52 pm

      yoyo muffintop: I have to agree with you. Joe Taco and JQK had to argue their case in front of the judge. The judge ruled for Joe Taco and against JQK. I say Joe won.

      If Joe Tacopina is
      so successful then
      why can he not look
      more like it, and be
      more articulate in his
      telelvision appearances?

      He looks like a dressed
      up car mechanic. They never
      look comfortable in nice clothes.
      He as about as articulate as one too!

      No offense to car mechanics though.

      I like them!

      …but TACO-0-PENA eats a
      rather large, bulky one.

      Lastly, last night’s KG’s “LINEUP” show
      in Joe Tacky-pina’s PHONE CALL…
      he sounded shrill, hysterical,
      and extremely

      #69 Carpe – I busted a gut when at the end of his tirade his dog started laughing at him — that was priceless!

    71. IndyDan on December 4th, 2006 9:16 pm

      Joe Taco: I do almost all of my work BLOW bono.

      The barking dogs were saying “Stop lying, Daddy!”

      Hey Joe:

      1) Why are you speaking for Antonio Carlo? Doesn’ t he have his own mouth?
      Where is he? Why doesn’t he speak for himself?

      2) Why did Joran pay for a photoshopped pic of he and Natalee together?

      3) Stop being the sideshow distraction and answer the questions.

      Did You Happen To See The POS Documents Taco
      Submitted In The NY Civil Suit ?

      Can You Actually Call That Crap The Work Of A Good Attorney ? I Was Embarrassed For Taco When I Read Them !

      Taco’s Meltdown Was Pathetic !

      As I Said Before – The Sloots Are Not Paying Taco Now
      Nor Have They Ever – Taco Is Desperately Trying To Collect !
      Too Bad His Only Payment Will Be Media Time – And
      After Last Night – That May End Very Soon !

      joeypacOpeanuts crossed the line talking about Beth that way, very disrespectful and something i predict will boomerang & kick him in the ass. Note he won’t face off with anyone one on one, which i’m positive Kimberly would have allowed. Nope he just wants to call in at the end & brand everyone except Jurine a liar. Hate to wish bad things happen to him but after his attack on Beth…..well.

      #58 you bring up a good point about the reward money. People in Aruba better wake up, smell the coffee and claim the reward money before Aruba’s ALE does it so they can infuse their tourism fund.

      JDS and PDS better watch their backs. Things are getting rather desperate in Aruba and “friendship” only goes so far.

    77. just mama on December 5th, 2006 6:28 am

      Joe T… don’t forget Someday a movie might be made about this. I can hardly wait to see who plays you!

      Think you’ve picked the wrong side in this case.

    78. Pearl on December 5th, 2006 8:36 am

      After Joran confessed on June 10, 2005, to KILLING Natalee Holloway, and BURYING her with his co-conspirators, and authorities learned WHERE the killers had placed Natalee’s body, why couldn’t Natalee’s body be retrieved for her parents to grieve over and bury under their terms and beliefs?

      What condition was Natalee’s body in that this precious child’s truth was so surrepticiously hidden from the world?

      “FRIENDS” with Natalee,JORAN?

      Was the burial and desecration, the kidnapping and the rape, the manner in which you killed her, your version of how you treat your “friends”?

      Who came up with that line Joran, that you were “friends” with Natalee? Did you invent that, or your father, or was it Van der Straaten? Who fed that line to the press?

      Strange, because Natalee never pointed to you as the person she was going to leave C and C with…she pointed to her Mountain Brook friends, the ones who loved her and cared about her.

      How exactly did Natalee end up in your car, Joran?

      How did she end up with you, Deepak and Satish when she told several people she was going back to her hotel WITH HER MOUNTAIN BROOK FRIENDS – HER MOUNTAIN BROOK FRIENDS, THE ONES SHE POINTED TO…THE ONES SHE TRUSTED, THE ONES SHE LOVED AND WHO LOVED HER..?

      [...] The other night on Fox News, “The Line Up”, Joe Tacopina made some rather irrational and unprofessional comments regarding Jossy Mansur and others. However, when one does not like or can do nothing against the message, they go after the messenger. Such is the case with Joe Tacopina. Joe Tacopina’s rant can be heard here. Jossy Mansur’s editorial translation can be read below. [...]

      Pearl – What are you going to say when you find out there was NO confession after seeing 6/10 statement?
      Just because someone talks with a british type accent, that does not somehow give them more credibility – ie Karl Penhall.

    81. super dave on December 5th, 2006 11:31 am

      #68: judges can be paid off. happens all the time !

    83. yoyo muffintop on December 5th, 2006 12:23 pm

      super dave – a US judge was paid off in this case to rule in favor of PJVDS? Come on now. You have now added another country involved in the cover-up. Aruba, Netherlands, Curaco, and now the US.

      In a british accent – “there was no confession”. Believe it now?

      Judge Dismisses Natalee Holloway Lawsuit

      Congrats to my pal Joe Tacopina who represents Joran van Der Sloot in the New York civil lawsuit filed against him by Natalee Holloways’ parents. The Judge, quite properly in my view, has dismissed the lawsuit, finding no reason for it to have been filed in New York.

      The lawsuit was dismissed by Judge Barbara Kapnick, who said it shouldn’t have been filed in Manhattan. She rejected an argument that if the case were filed in Aruba, it would prompt a media frenzy that could interfere with the investigation.


    85. Natalee's friend on December 6th, 2006 1:57 am

      Natalee is happy in her new home, and wants everyone to leave Joran alone.


      SM:   That’s pure BS – you are no friend of Natalee.   I’m affraid it’s too late for you Joran supporters, the dominoes are beginning to fall (klaasend)
