Want to Know What Kind of Man Jamie Skeeters Was? Read This…


We here at Scared Monkeys had the opportunity to know Jamie and realize what a special person he was on so many levels. But then you read the following , and please go to their site and read the whole post and leave a comment, and you know there is a special place in heaven for the man.

During the funeral, numerous mourners stood up and talked about the man I had never met before. They spoke, one after another, about his generous nature, caring heart and sense of humor. For nearly 2 hours his friends and family sang his praise and reminisced about his incredible zest for life.

After only a few minutes, I found myself laughing, crying and grieving right alongside his closest friends and family. Throughout the service, I learned about the hundreds of lives he touched and his frequent altruistic acts while serving nearly 30 years of service to the Oxnard, California community. This once Marine Sergeant was also a police officer, a founding member of the Oxnard Police Department SWAT team, a member of the Ventura County Narcotics Task force, a founding member on the Governor’s Task Force against Sex Offenders and he later became a licensed polygraph examiner. This guy was busy. But never too busy to help a friend in need or call his daughter a couple of times a day, just to say, “I love you.”

      It must have been incomprehensible, even for someone with so much background in law enforcement (which tends to see the darkest sides of life), to deal with the scum in Aruba.

      One hopes that, if he is indeed “up there” or anywhere, he will be doing what he can to make sure our quest succeeds.

      What a wonderful tribute to a man that put his heart and soul into what he believed in. How lucky we are to live in a world made up of people willing to go that extra mile to fight crime and to help empower it’s victims. We can only pray that there be another that can fill his shoes as this world will, certainly, feel a void without him.

      My condolences to the family and to all those that were fortunate enough to have known him. May he rest in peace knowing that he did all he could to make this a better world… and it is, because of him.

      A TV program called “Haunting Evidence” is supposed to air a show about Natalee.
      It will at least get Natalee’s name back in the media.
      I brought this over from BFN:

      babelfish translation:

      An American television plough proves for a paranormal crime programme prerecordings of the places Natalee Holloway has been, before she disappeared without a trace. ORANJESTAD – an American television plough of eleven people has stayed since yesterday on Aruba to make before prerecordings of the last spots which Natalee Holloway have visited she disappeared without a trace. The prerecordings are for the programme Haunting Evidence in which three paranormal begaafden try solve crime. Aruba Tourism Authority (ATA) is informed. A spokesman tells that they had got previous year a e-mail of the American producer. In this ATA were asked for information on local film facilities and customs authorities regulations. When the producer by the end of announced himself December, ATA decided after internal consultation with the minister that they would grant to no more collaboration. The reason is that for us the question no longer plays. Moreover it goes a type tabloid-tv, there we do not sit, thus wait for the spokesman. ATA have, however, the eigenaren of Carlos n Charlies and other managers, where the disappeared teenager for last has been seen, brought of the television prerecordings. ATA emphasise that the Public Prosecution Service can be only asked for an official point of view concerning course of the matter. The new head commissioner peter white has been designated as official spokesman. “[/b]everyone is further free its give opinion in the programme, but that is no official comment, but a personal opinion”, thus Ata-woordvoerder.

      In todays Amigoe (Dutch):

      Op zoek naar Natalee Holloway – Amerikaanse filmploeg met helderzienden op Aruba
      13 Feb, 2007, 17:44 (GMT -04:00)

      Een Amerikaanse televisieploeg maakt ten behoeve van een paranormaal misdaadprogramma opnames van de plaatsen waar Natalee Holloway is geweest, voordat ze spoorloos verdween.

      ORANJESTAD – Een Amerikaanse televisieploeg van elf mensen verblijft sinds gisteren op Aruba om opnames te maken van de laatste plekken die Natalee Holloway heeft bezocht voordat ze spoorloos verdween. De opnames zijn voor het programma Haunting Evidence waarin drie paranormaal begaafden misdaden proberen op te lossen.

      Aruba Tourism Authority (ATA) is op de hoogte. Een woordvoerder vertelt dat ze vorige jaar een e-mail hadden gekregen van de Amerikaanse producent. Daarin werd ATA om informatie gevraagd over lokale filmfaciliteiten en douanevoorschriften. Toen de producent zich eind december bekendmaakte, besloot ATA na intern overleg met de minister, dat ze geen medewerking meer zouden verlenen. “De reden is dat voor ons de kwestie niet meer speelt. Bovendien gaat het om een soort tabloid-tv, daar zitten we niet op te wachten”, aldus de woordvoerder. ATA heeft wel de eigenaren van Carlos ‘N Charlies en andere uitbaters, waar de verdwenen tiener voor het laatst is gezien, op de hoogte gebracht van de televisieopnames.

      ATA benadrukt dat alleen het Openbaar Ministerie om een officieel standpunt gevraagd kan worden over het verloop van de zaak. De nieuwe hoofdcommissaris Peter de Witte is aangewezen als officiële woordvoerder. “Iedereen is verder vrij om zijn mening te geven in het programma, maar dat is geen officieel commentaar, maar een persoonlijke mening”, aldus de ATA-woordvoerder.

      Duty to God.

      Duty to Country.

      Duty to Family and others.

      Jamie Skeeters, What a wonderful example.

      Joran, where did those who were trusted with your instruction and upbringing go wrong? Are the terms God, Country, and Respect for others so foreign to you that you would destroyed a helpless, defenses, young girl? How many lives have you despoiled? How much have you taken? How much have you given. The blood of a young girl cries to God. “Find me, help me, save me.” Do you think you can hide from God what belongs to God? May it never be.

      We have lost a lot with the passing of Jamie, he left big shoes to fill. Truly the victims advocate. A gentleman in all ways. Rest in peace.

      God bless and keep you in the palm of his hand, Jamie.

      Rest in Peace Jamie. Your work will someday help bring these savage little boys and their savage parents to justice.

      Natalee Holloway — msn personal
      page. — -featuring new pics
      of he and other people that he
      has not managed to rape
      or murder just yet. IMO -j4n


    13. Carpe Noctem on February 13th, 2007 11:47 pm

      lol klaas,

      now that is what I call
      “dead weight.”

    14. Carpe Noctem on February 14th, 2007 12:26 am

      I may never be able to prove it…
      …but I’ll never stop trying as
      long as my heart continues to pump…

      I believe with everything I’ve got…

      that the images seen in the ARUBAY ROCKS

      SITE VIDEOS perhaps contain some of Natalee’s remains.

      They are interspersed in and on the rocks…

      There are pieces from at least 1 other person

      mixed in for confusion & forensics corruption…

      Also, there appears to be a shark’s head and

      portion of its body to further obfuscate things.

      The head that is clearly visible next to the orange

      water cooler, has a tongue sticking out that still has

      some pinkness to it. Mayan Moons saw that and pointed it

      out to me.

      Also, the decap. head is filthy like it has been out in the

      sun for days and possibly buried in sand/dirt.

      Left temple has a small piece of duct tape

      or bandage over it.

      The other side is leaking blood from a rather large right

      temple wound. The blood does not look all that old,

      ostensibly speaking.

      If someone asked me to take my best guess at how this

      poor soul died… I would probably say – gunshot wound

      to the tepmle (probably the left side – left as you orient

      yourself from the position of the corpse)

      When that little b-tch says
      that Natalee went to see the sharks…

      he is using a technique to make it appear that he is being honest. … but it is not honesty, they are half-truths to
      beat a lie detector or authorities. She did not ask to see the sharks. He somehow took her to them. So while she did see the sharks… she did not ask.

      It is a lying technique
      plucked right off of the bookshelf
      of L. RON HUBBARD, & I am willing to
      put an effin ‘Bennie’ on the fact that his
      undulating, sweaty,
      vat of pig slop flunky
      judge of a father
      taught it to him. -J4N




      Justice 4 Natalee, we’ll never stop.

      In item #3, there’s a comment that “the question no longer plays.” Wonder what that is supposed to mean?

    17. vicki on February 14th, 2007 7:47 am

      God bless you Jamie, you touched so many lives and we are all the better for it. You helped out with Natalee and for that I thank you. Tell her we love her and we will never give up until there is JUSTICE for her and her family.
      Carpe, I believe you are right. They threw in the other bodies to derail the investigation in case there was one. When the police saw how bad it was, they got rid of the whole crime scene. I have never hated anyone for very long in my life as I am a forgiving person, But I HATE URINE with all of my heart. I wish he would DIE a very slow and painful death. He is the DEVILS SPAWN.

    18. Carpe Noctem on February 14th, 2007 10:52 am

      Paul-ass Van der rapist…


      Supreme Court says HE GETS NONE!

    19. vicki on February 14th, 2007 11:06 am

      Carpe, I read that, too. FINALLY, Some JUSTICE for the family. Lets hope this is the beginning of the end.

      Am I reading this correct, no mulah for Lawless VanderSloood?

    21. Big Lou/Kelmal/Gretamal on February 14th, 2007 1:33 pm

      Vicki: I know how you feel but it is very unhealthy to hate so much. You should get some help before it consumes you.

    22. Carpe Noctem on February 14th, 2007 3:56 pm

      Miss U,

      You are CORRECT, SIRRRRR!

      (um MA’AM) -Ed McMahon ;)

      Godspeed Jamie! Your record speaks for itself. Like the old saying when you are good, you don’t have to brag about yourself , others will. Very nice letter.
