New Orleans Travel Show … Natalee Holloway Aruban Protest … Justice for Natalee Holloway, Part I


The New Orleans Travel Show is the latest effort by concerned individuals who want to remind those in NO - Aruba_traadeshowthe travel and vacation booking business that people have not forgotten Natalee Holloway nor what happened in Aruba and continues to this day with regards to a cover up and lack of justice.

Let the following efforts by those that wish to remind the travel industry that it is unacceptable for a tourist to go missing and have their investigation covered up. Aruba, is not a vacation option. There are far too many other places for people to spend their hard earned money on a vacation. Promote travel to New Orleans and help revitalize their economy following Hurricane Katrina.

Lowering a price for a ticket or a package deal is not an option … Tourism industry, the only option when dealing with Aruba is … JUSTICE FOR NATALEE!

The following are the personal accounts of those on the ground including Scared Monkeys members from New Orleans: (Hat Tip: Karo)

There was good exposure for the cause today in New Orleans! Although some protesters were unable to come, last minute, and there are just 3 of us, the banners and signs are being noticed and are as well placed as possible. (Some of them are shown on the photos below.) We can only place signs on public property and Hilton Hotel security made us take down a banner they thought was too close to their property. The World Trade Center made us move signs in their lawn, near the sidewalk. Otherwise, there were no problems.


(Click on brochure to enlarge)

People were walking up to us and talking about the case, asking questions. Some were arrogant or rude and refused to take the nice brochures we were passing out. Others seemed extremely interested in the case and very sympathetic to Natalee’s family. Several even made it a point to tell us THEY are not going to Aruba!

Among the most interesting people we spoke with was a travel agent from Aruba_boycottOntario who has 5 children and who showed a great deal of interest in this case. Another man, a Native American, works in the Caribbean as a boat captain, and he was VERY angry about the anti-American sentiment he encounters that when he goes to countries in the Caribbean…and about Natalee’s case.

We’ll be going back tomorrow and Sunday to continue our protest…

This Riverwalk entrance is next to the Hilton, where the travel agents are meeting. Many people are passing through this large gate and taking time to read the banners.

NO - Aruba_Tradeshow2

One of our cars is parked between Harrah’s Casino and the Hilton, and most attending the travel meetings have to pass by…on foot or by car.

As people cross the streets in 4 directions, to and from the meetings, they are faced with signs…and/or us.

More updates to follow …

      Well done! A big thank you for those of you in New Orleans.

    2. on June 30th, 2007 1:21 pm

      Good work NO team.

    3. Brie on June 30th, 2007 1:29 pm

      Bravo! Hang in there guys! We’ll hold down the fort here!

    4. usnavy on June 30th, 2007 1:29 pm

      A heartfelt thank you to all who are in New Orleans standing in the hot sun speaking out for Natalee. May your voice be heard by all that attend.

      You guys/gals are saints.

      The power of the Internet at work. It isn’t just digital bits in cyberspace. It allows organization and an eternal delivery of both electronic and physical messages.

      Aruba….take note. ALL Caribbean countries take note. Aruba will ALWAYS be cursed by your cover-up. You are the first Caribbean country to attempt to execute the classic ‘disappearing’ tourist scam in the Internet era. It won’t go away.

      To the KLPD. You have the info you need to recommend rape charges on the predators. You have all of the evidence you need that Paulus was provided “Conflict of Interest” rulings to distance himself and his property from the crimes. You have a recent ‘finding of fact’ from the Aruban courts that Paulus has lied about his timeline and should be considered a suspect. So…KLPD….when are you going to take Paulus down?

      This won’t go away – even if the KLPD decides to attempt to stall for another two years (in addition, of course, to the Aruba two year stall). Arrest the predators – charge them with rape if you don’t have the courage to bring down all of the collaborators acting under the “color of law” in Aruba…….charging RAPE is the way to get this to go away – get the predators behind bars – and save face for the corrupt folks in Aruba.

      It still won’t help the tourism until you actually, fully disclose to Natalee Holloway’s family what actually happened on that night. I don’t think we will hold our breaths…..crow pie anyone???


    6. Pita on June 30th, 2007 1:53 pm

      Bless all those who have taken the time out of their busy lives to be a voice for Natalee. Keep up the good work! Education and awareness never hurts.

    7. downloadingdaddy on June 30th, 2007 1:56 pm

      Thank you for all for being there to speak for our citizen who can no longer speak for herself. You are truly special people.

    8. LilPuma on June 30th, 2007 3:01 pm

      Freedom of Speech alive and well in America. Thanks goes out to those who are taking action for an American lost and the injustice that followed.

    9. Observer on June 30th, 2007 3:10 pm

      You are very special people to take time from your own lives and your own dime to travel to New Orleans. So many people don’t know about Natalee and it is important that she has a voice anywhere Aruba peddles there tourism. You ignored the trolls that tried to derail what you know is true in your heart and the love you show for her is admirable..Natalee and her Family must be very proud!!!

    10. ben on June 30th, 2007 3:24 pm

      I dont belive this case will ever be closed.If they leave it open no one can say anything if they close it with no arrest they get bad publicity.

      {The New Orleans Travel Show is the latest effort by concerned individuals who want to remind those in the travel and vacation booking business that people have not forgotten Natalee Holloway nor what happened in Aruba and continues to this day with regards to a cover up and lack of justice.}

      That is a decent step in doing awareness to this case. Now let’s see if it follows up, in anything that will help the case.

      {Let the following efforts by those that wish to remind the travel industry that it is unacceptable for a tourist to go missing and have their investigation covered up. Aruba, is not a vacation option. There are far too many other places for people to spend their hard earned money on a vacation. Promote travel to New Orleans and help revitalize their economy following Hurricane Katrina.}

      As long as tourists don’t get blasted by another Katrina, then that is a very good thing to point out. Maybe try not to promote travel during the peak of the Hurricane Season to areas around the Gulf Of Mexico.

      I also agree that it is unacceptable for a tourist to go missing and to have their investigation covered up. {Resulting in hell for the family, and the case becoming cold.}

      “Aruba, is not a vacation option.”

      Ummm if have a few things to say about that in general.

      1. Based on what I found out, is that since 1996, only 6 people have gone missing on the island. So if that’s your fear/issue, then there’s just about nothing to worry about in that area.

      2. Aruba is not a prime target for Hurricanes or Tropical Storms. The last one that effected the island, was Emily in 2005. {I believe}

      3. I believe it was said somewhere on this site, that 16 murders happen a year in Aruba. {Correct me if I’m wrong about this, as I’m not sure on this one.}

      4. I also heard that 12 robberies happened a day on the island. This is interesting, and puts a hole into my point, however, since the majority of tourists don’t even stay that long {Around 1 to 2 weeks generally}, it has a lesser chance of effecting them. So this isn’t that much of a issue, although you can do awareness for this if you think it’s needed.

      {Lowering a price for a ticket or a package deal is not an option … Tourism industry, the only option when dealing with Aruba is … JUSTICE FOR NATALEE}

      This here is a bit confusing for me to understand. But what I think you are trying say, is for the Tourism Industry to do something to move this case forward again that can close this case.

      Now I am confused with dealing with Aruba, does that mean when you associate with Aruba, or something else all together.

      So overall, what this is doing is just reminding people about that case again. However here is where you are flawed.

      Refer to {1.} of my list above, {unless I am wrong}, then 6 people have gone missing on the island since 1996. Now while those are sad for those families, the chance of you going missing on the island, is almost non-existant, so there isn’t a issue there.

      I’m not seeing the main problem with Aruba. While I do agree that the government is totally screwed, the chance of a issue where the government gets involved, while you are vacation is again, almost non-existant.

      I thank god, that this whole thing is not being reported by the mainstream media. Since the majority of it is false, I understand where you are coming from, but just because, one insanely reported case, on a island with almost no threat to it’s tourists, does not mean that the island is a horrible traveling destination. I wan’t to see one problem about this island, that has not affected this case, or is involved with this case.

      Cause if you detract tourists from a island, that is highly dependent in tourism, then the Aruban people {I’m talking about the non-idiotice ones}, will have less to do with their lifes, less options for hope or interest, and will suffer the most damage from this whole thing that is being over-exaggerated, because Holloway is a missing white woman, who was reported on the media, cause the majority of media are racist ***holes.

      I agree that the family deserves justice for Natalee, but not by damaging the innocent people who live there. Sorry, but there’s not that much of a issue when you really look at it.

      Holloway was unfortunate, but in reality, it could have happened to anyone, and it happened to her. And what the majority of people deep down think, is that they would rather have this happen to Holloway than their own child. And that’s not a bad thing, but tough. The family needs to be grateful that this case has gathered so much insane attention by the media and people {Which the majority of it was not needed}, and we need to look at the other people that go missing on these islands too. Cause it’s not just Holloway, it’s just that the Holloway’s and McCann’s of this world are the lucky ones while we all forget about the others who deserve as much attention and love as those mentioned.

      Now I am gonna be so flamed for this.

    13. MissingJustice on June 30th, 2007 4:01 pm

      Observer- I highly doubt that so many people don’t know about Natalee. There might be some, but not that many.

      And about the fact that she needs her voice heard wherever Aruba advertises their tourism, just because one of 6 people since 1996 goes missing on the island, doesn’t mean that the Aruban People need to have their lives come crashing down by over-exaggerating over this case.

    14. Susan on June 30th, 2007 4:14 pm

      Yeppers, a big “Thank you” to the NO protesters :-) Give ‘em hell and keep up the static!

      God Bless and be with Natalee and her fine family always :-)



    15. JusticeforNatalee on June 30th, 2007 4:14 pm


      Aruba fudges its crime statistics and
      got caught in a cover up.

      That is reason enough to avoid it like the plague.

      The Aruban officials are responsible for what
      happens to the Aruban people, not tourists.

      Natalee was innocent, too. And there are innocent
      girls, both local and tourist, who are being drugged
      for the purpose of rape on the island of Aruba. An
      ALE officer admitted that this goes on.

      Do you think you or your loved one would have been
      treated any differently? Guess again.

      Aruba needs to clean up its act and this “innocent Arubans’
      nonsense is the latest ATA/AHATA ploy.

      “Come to our dangerous, drug-infested island where
      tourist deaths are covered up because if you don’t,
      the local people will be out of jobs. LOL WOW! What a great

    16. mayan_moons on June 30th, 2007 4:33 pm

      And what the majority of people deep down think, is that they would rather have this happen to Holloway than their own child. And that’s not a bad thing


      Spoken like a true Aruban… long as nothing bad affects or happens to them or their children they don’t care.

      FU ARUBA!~

    17. mayan_moons on June 30th, 2007 4:39 pm

      We have as much care and concern for Aruba as Aruba has for Natalee……….NONE!

      Get used to it!

    18. nurturer on June 30th, 2007 4:40 pm

      Who were these imbecils that were rude about someone wanting to see justice?

    19. Achilles on June 30th, 2007 5:05 pm

      Refer to {1.} of my list above, {unless I am wrong}, then 6 people have gone missing on the island since 1996. Now while those are sad for those families, the chance of you going missing on the island, is almost non-existant, so there isn’t a issue there.

      Thats what is documented,now how many have gone unreported on the Vile isle.

    20. Maggie on June 30th, 2007 5:06 pm

      Give it a rest Missing Justice! What was your nic yesterday Mary Ann??? Nooo missing/murdered person has tooo much publicity while they are still missing. I’m glad to hear you are so worried about others who get no publicity, Why don’t you go start a blog about some of the other missing minority ones, if you are so concerned instead of clicking on Natalee Holloways to complain about her having attention. Noone forces you to come here to read. You people are so transparent.

      It’s never been about the number of crimes in Aruba as much as it’s been about how crime is dealt with and total lack of respect for a victim and their family. If people can go out in the street and protest chollers, surely they can go out in the streets and protest how a tourist and her family have been treated by the officials of Aruba.

    21. sirensong on June 30th, 2007 5:09 pm

      A BIG hug and thanks to all who went to the travel show! You guys are awesome! Nice job!

      It’s like this….

      “Those who are willing to give up liberty to gain safety deserve neither, and will lose both.” – Benjamin Franklyn

    23. Brie on June 30th, 2007 6:36 pm what time does your plane leave? Make sure you stop at Carlos ” Charlie’s for a little drinkie poo! Don’t mind the flying bullets as you walk down the street, it’s only target practice. Maybe you might be lucky enough to get a room with a hidden camera. Late night walk on the beach, but don’t worry you won’t remember stepping on the sea shells. You might even wake up to see Venezula the next day. Or you might not have to worry about what time you wake at all. Have a good time!

    24. MissingJustice on June 30th, 2007 6:40 pm

      Mayan- Not what I mean at all. The whole point is, is that I agree they do feel sorry for Holloway and the hell that’s happening to her family and friends. Now about the rather thing, would you rather see your own child abducted and killed, or another. I can see where you think I’m being a b*itch, but in reality, while they do feel sorry for Holloway, their glad that their own kiddies are safe.

      And I’m not Aruban.

      Also, what would have made sense is that “we have as much care and concern for Natalee as the Aruban government as for Natalee.


      I agree that the Aruban “Government is run by a bunch of power-hungry assholes who have screwed up, not the Aruban people who feel for the family and want justice served.

      So when you mention the word Aruba, you mean the whole population, it’s the Government that screwed up, not the respectable people who live there.

      Nurturer- Of course I would want to see justice for Natalee. But by boycotting the island, that’s not getting justice, that’s screwing up the innocent lifes, of the population that is not made up of idiots.

      Achilles- Not that I don’t agree with you, but out of curiousity, I would love to know where I can find about these other missing people. Because I agree with you, that there may be other missing people that we have not heard about. I just want to know where I can find out about these

      Maggie- Given me a idea that I might do in the future, thank you. And at the same point, I’m not worried, I’m disgusted by the mainstream media. But your pretty close. And I’m not complaining about anything here, in fact none of us are really doing that. All I’m doing is commenting on the case and what it has done.

      Now what some people are saying is that Aruba is not a vacation option, and I agree with you that it’s mainly about how someone wen’t missing on the island and the whole case has been covered up, but what people are doing, is giving out points and reasons why to not go to Aruba. And while I can see where they’re coming from, majority of it is being over-exaggerated. I don’t like to say that, but it’s what’s happening.

      Gunslinger- Okay I’m trying to understand you here so I’ll do the best I can at responding.

      What Liberty means is that the concept of political philosophy and identifies the condition in which an individual has the ability to act according to his or her own will.

      This could mean a few things, here’s what I think you mean. This is about the people at the New Orleans protest who stood up for what they believe in and to help give justice for the family and Natalee. And that’s not a bad thing at all, my issue is, is when they point out how bad Aruba is.

      I respect the people who are trying to do this, this means that they hold respect for the family in all areas and want to help them obtain justice for their daugther. And to those people, keep going.

      Now I obviously don’t understand what “to give up liberty to gain safety” means? What I would think that means, would be to “to use the concept of liberty to gain safety.”
      So someone help me out on this, as I don’t seem to get it thank you.

      One other thing I don’t understand is, this Mary Ann thing. Cause I can’t find a single user who’s posted on this part of the site who calls him/herself Mary Ann. And my name isn’t Mary Ann either, so I don’t get it.

      I can understand as to where you think I’m screwed on this whole issue. But I hold as much respect for the family and Natalee as you people do, I just feel differently for the whole investigation and Aruba in general.

      I do agree and always will, that Aruba is run by a bunch of power-hungry b*itches, who have covered up this investagation from the get go.

      Perhaps I should search, to find any info, anywhere on any other Aruba missing people.

    25. Allan K on June 30th, 2007 6:42 pm

      12 missingjustice is an appropriate name for you.

      And what the majority of people deep down think, is that they would rather have this happen to Holloway than their own child.

      You are sick. You are way off base here and have not enough moral character to understand. The only thing you understand is money.

      and will suffer the most damage from this whole thing that is being over-exaggerated, because Holloway is a missing white woman,

      The only over-exaggerated thing here is you. Natalee was still a child in my book while predators in Aruba are allowed to prey on tourists with no intervention. Some ALE are corrupt and seem to also know what really happened.

    26. Brie on June 30th, 2007 6:52 pm

      #12…Oh, and while your there, be sure to rent a car, their roads are now equipped with dare-devil dodge-ims …it’s free!!

    27. MissingJustice on June 30th, 2007 7:07 pm

      Allan- I knew I was gonna get the…..did you mean inappropriate or were you just being sarcastic? But I saw that coming a mile away.

      First off, I’m not gonna suffer anything cause I’m not a Aruban resident, and I don’t live anywhere near the Caribbean. Which means, “The only thing you understand is money” is false. But that’s not your fault, since you didn’t know if I was a Aruban or not, and I’m glad that I cleared that up for you.

      I won’t deny the the ALE or the government really know what happened, in fact I agree with you on that. Didn’t know about the predators though, in fact I do wonder about the number of rapes that have happened recently?

      What you don’t get here is, the fact that these families do care about Natalee and feel sorry for what happened to her. I said it earlier and I’ll say it again, would you rather have this happen to your own child, or another. While it does seem cold, and I agree, it’s the sad truth, I don’t like the sad truth, but that’s the truth. And these people do feel the need to help the family in whatever way they can, I would if I lived in Aruba/Southern U.S.A.

      Brie- I actually found that funny, but as I said before, I’M NOT A ARUBAN RESIDENT AND WILL NEVER BE. And I don’t know if I’ll ever go there, it’s not on my top spots on where to go, but I wouldn’t take it off.

    28. Maggie on June 30th, 2007 7:48 pm

      There’s just something very distasteful about coming to a site labeled Natalee Holloway and complaining about other missing/murdered people not getting attention. Natalee’s family has got up everyday and worked hard to keep this story in the spotlight, so they can find out where their daughter was disposed of like trash. Natalee and her family have been continually victimized by the Aruban Officials and trolls working for Aruba. We’ve seen enough paid liars.

      SM has covered many missing/murdered people cases in the past none based on their color or money. At the top it says missing persons.

    29. MIss-Underestimated on June 30th, 2007 8:03 pm


    30. MissingJustice on June 30th, 2007 8:08 pm

      Maggie- That’s one of the reasons as to why I like this site so much. However, Scaredmonkeys as far as I know, is not part of the media.

      And I’m not complaining about Holloway or her family. And I don’t blame them, cause it’s how the human mind works, your child goes missing, you try to keep the story in the air for as long as you can, you go to any length to find justice, and I don’t blame them for that.

      And unless you are talking about this part of the site, then I don’t see how the main site is labeled Natalee Holloway?

      And I’m not a fan of trolls/Aruban Trolls or the Aruban Government either. And I’m not paid by Aruba anyway to do this.

    31. Brie on June 30th, 2007 8:23 pm

      #30…better hurry your going to miss your plane!

    32. Brie on June 30th, 2007 8:35 pm

      If Missing Justice thinks she’s going to lay a guilt trip on’s not going to work…There’s alot of American money on the soil of Aruba, we have very actively supported their economy for a very long time. The gov’t and the Ale could care less about the natives of Aruba. Natalee’s case could of been solved along time ago and the boycott never would of happened. But the selfish corrupted ways of those in control wanted to guard their island secrets. But things are back-firing and the lid is going to blow off.

      Arubans need to reminded of where their bread and butter came from! Sorry, but someone has stolen the bread and the butter has melted.

    33. Brie on June 30th, 2007 8:42 pm

      Jet Blue….last call for boarding to Aruba….passengers need to hurry, we’re running on fumes.

    34. Richard on June 30th, 2007 8:46 pm

      Obviously the trolls are out again. Always happens that way … first when the Boston protest took place, then Miami, and now New Orleans.

      Guess the Aruban Tourism Authority must be feeling a bit desperate. All their lies and advertising campaigns aren’t worth beans when they face our implacable determination.

      “No justice for Natalee … no tourists for Aruba.”

      I’ve seen the pamphlet that they’re handing out in New Orleans, and it is just fabulous.

    35. Richard on June 30th, 2007 8:48 pm

      And I’ll say it once again, though there’s no need to …

      We owe Aruba NOTHING.

      We have NO obligations to them.

      Let them look to the drug lords and casino mob for help.

      The charade that Aruba has conducted over the last two years should leave no doubt … it is a place to boycott.

      Sort of like a cesspool of the Caribbean, except that cesspools serve a useful function.

    36. MissingJustice on June 30th, 2007 9:01 pm

      Brie- I seriously wan’t to know, where I said that I was female. I am male, and always will be,

      And I said it once, and I’ll say it again, Aruba is not on my top list of places to visit in my lifetime.

      And I agree that the Government could care less about the Aruban people. However the whole reason the boycott was started, was because the Aruban government threw the investigation under the rug, and I have nothing against that part of this whole thing.

      The thing is, if we screw up their economy, then the innocent people on the island, are screwed for a decent life. And they’ll have to start Aruban Immigration, {And the U.S. has enough problems with Mexico.} So by taking away the profit towards Aruba, you are doing two things, A: You are screwing up the government {Which is good}.

      B: You are screwing up the lives of the innocent Aruban people.

      So by doing this whole boycott, you are doing good, and you are doing bad.

      I’m not trying to lay a guilt-trip on any person on this site, in fact I like how you people are keeping the attention on the case. It’s just, by helping the family by doing this boycott, you will damage other innocent lives on the island. So it’s questionable as to who were helping and who were helping.

      Helping- Family and friends of Natalee Holloway
      Hurting- Every single person who lives in Aruba. {Retarted Government, and innocent people}

      And my intention is not to troll here, of course I can’t help that you do have Aruban people who utterly disagree about the entire thing that you people are standing for, and that is really sad. But that’s what I have to deal with.

      People need to realize who were helping and which innocent lives were helping. This is a tough scenairo, but no matter what, somebody is gonna feel the penalty here. {And I’m not talking about the government here}. Will either be the family or the innocent Aruban people.

    37. Sherry on June 30th, 2007 9:08 pm make a reference about Natalee being a ‘missing white woman’ and you dare to call the media racist..look at yourself!! Should media have shown their NON-racism by NOT reporting the case since she is white? It seems as if something happens to a person or anything ever goes wrong in general, racism always becomes an issue IF that person happens to be white. What a joke!! You people with that attitude are the biggest racists of all.

    38. Bob on June 30th, 2007 9:36 pm

      It will be a cold day in Hell before I and my extensive family will ever return to Aruba for vacation, or spend .20c on that crime infested sand pile. Boy am I glad we dumped our 2 timeshares over a year ago. Frankly, we wouldn’t return for a visit there if it was for free.

      12. Based on what I found out, is that since 1996, only 6 people have gone missing on the island. So if that’s your fear/issue, then there’s just about nothing to worry about in that area.
      Comment by MissingJustice | June 30, 2007, 3:41 pm

      “ONLY” 6 people!!! Unbelieveable! Obviously, your precious loved one was not among the six who never returned to their families.
      The outrage is not about a missing eighteen year old American citizen who when missing on Aruban soil under suspicious circumstance. Crime happens everywhere. It is about a corrupt investigation that is preventing justice from prevailing … it is about a corrupt investigation that is protecting their own from implication … it is about a corrupt investigation that refuses to afford a measure of closure to a victim’s family …
      The people of Aruba collectively protest environmental concerns … the choller issue … the drug problem … an anguish mother were dared called those who were obstructing her daughter’s investigation “criminals”. However … Arubans will not made a collective stand and demand that their elected official do what is right in regards to the Natalee Holloway case.
      The Natalee Holloway case would be a distance memory if those who participated in the events of that fateful morning had been held accountable for their actions by the justice system in Aruba.
      MissingJustice … I do not care about statistics. All I know is … Natalee Holloway’s life mattered … it had value and … until justice prevails … I say “BOYCOTT ARUBA”!

      (AP) Gov. Bob Riley called for a nationwide travel boycott of Aruba on Tuesday on behalf a missing Alabama teenager’s family, who accuse the island’s government of not fully cooperating with the investigation into her disappearance. Riley asked his fellow governors to join him in urging the boycott of Aruba, where 18-year-old Natalee Holloway was last seen on May 30.

      It’s my hope this will cause the Aruban people to be more demanding that their officials conduct a thorough investigation.

    40. MissingJustice on June 30th, 2007 9:43 pm

      Sherry- I’m not saying that this case did not deserve any attention at all. Look, the media for years has been over-exaggerating stories like these for years, and the missing black persons are the ones who suffer the penalty here.

      However, just because your white and female, doesn’t automatically put you on the mainstream media. It is basically a battle of sorts, between all the families of missing persons, to see who wins in the end and gets the overall attention. And I’m not blaming the families on anything in that regard, it’s just the world we live in.

      But let’s look at something for a second, according to what the media says, they wan’t to help solve missing person cases in general, and provide justice for their families. Now look at where Holloway went missing, in Aruba, which is not close to the United States. Unless Aruban residents have the American Channels, then by posting the story in America, you would have made a bigger impact by helping the family of a child who went missing in America.

      But let’s realize something very important, while I respect sites like these for covering these unheard cases, and really heard, while spliting the attention between the two types of cases, why does the media cover missing person cases in the first place.

      Except to get the public to increase the reward money, and inform the public about these cases and how you can help, logicaly you can’t help if you live on the other side the country where a case is reported.

      Missing person cases need to be reported on their local media networks {Not the bigshots}, cause people turn in to their local news to see what’s happening in their community. And then you get more of a audience who actually can provide possible help to solve a case, cause they are near where the dissappearence happened.

      Now what the mainstream media can do, is provide viewers with information on when and where searches will be conducted. That way you have a bigger number of people, can cover more ground, and get to clues faster. But it doesn’t do that, for some bizarre reason.

      What the media should do, is teach the viewers on different aspects of crime, and teach them on how to be safe in different areas of the crime world. From the internet to self-defense against attackers and abductors. I mean when the media reports a case on a young missing pregnant women, we already know how it will end in general.

      One of the best options, is for the mainstream media to stop covering the cases altogether. Cause it’s not news that effects you in general, and it never will be, unless you live near where the disappearence happened.

      Instead, use cases as examples on how to educate the viewers on how to keep their family safe. As with the Holloway case, instead of reporting on it, report on how Beth is trying to inform the public of how to keep safe when visting a foreign country. You don’t need to put her on even, just report on it and you will make a bigger impact on the viewers, then if you covering on the missing person case.

      Richard- I agree that we owe the government nothing, as that we have no obligations to them. However, what your saying is that the Aruban people {Who haven’t been doing anything wrong, and wan’t to see justice served} should look to the druggies and mob for help. Sorry but that’s insane.

      I’ve said time and time again, that if you continue boycotting the island, then the innocent Aruban people will suffer the damage. So in reality, your helping a few people, but damaging hundereds of others.

    41. JusticeforNatalee on June 30th, 2007 9:51 pm

      “You are screwing up the lives of the innocent Aruban people.”

      No WE aren’t.

      The perps and the officials are. Go complain to them.

    42. MissingJustice on June 30th, 2007 10:05 pm

      39. And again, you and others are assisting this family as they deserve it, but you will damage the lives of the innocent Aruban people.

      But at the same time, you bring up a decent point to this debate. That the Aruban people do not stand up to close this case and bring justice to the family.

      Now while this is interesting to say, do they really have to stand up. They could still be in fear by their own government, and they have helped the family in their searches and wen’t to the prayer vigils. And would this even matter to the Aruban Government, this is very interesting turn in the debate, and I credit and thank you for pointing this out.

      So if the Aruban people are in fear of their own government, ready to completely shut them down, there are several ways people will look at this situation.

      So you could be right, I could be right, but still, someone will suffer the penalty in all of this, and a family deserves justice in all of this.

      However, assume that the Government would do nothing even after the protests from it’s own people, then their lives would be screwed by the government’s decisions.

      Now we go back to the 6 people debate “again”. I really don’t have much more to say on this, accept those families do deserve justice and always will, but some cases are solved, others are not. That’s sad, but that’s why you have to be so careful in our society today.

    43. Cerril on June 30th, 2007 10:26 pm

      MissingJustice: The only purpose of people posting on this site is of destroying Aruba because Natalee went missing and because the ALE completely ruined the investigation and therefore the whole Island must suffer. I agree with you and it is from the beginning ALE bothed up the case and they are now lost, don’t know how to proceed even with the help from Holland. People on this site really think the government supports the Sloots/Kalpoes. Ridiculous! The Sloots/Kalpoes have no power at all in Aruba and nobody will coverup for them knowing Aruba will be boycotted for that. The government/police of Aruba were stupid and that’s why innocent citizens must pay. Very often I hear USA doesn’t owe Aruba anything. If Americans don’t want to visit Aruba: Fine but there will be always people that want to come, less but they will come. And that will not change!
      The funny thing right now is that a soccer team of USA participates in a soccer tournament in Venezuela. They play their game in Venezuela and right after that return to Aruba where they are actually staying. If Aruba is so dangerous why come here they can stay in Venezuela? But everybody know the Venezuela from Chavez don’t like Americans and suddenly is Aruba an option for them to stay. Nothing against the soccers coming to Aruba but who is fooling who?

      MissingJustice blames the plight of the Aruban people on those supporting the boycott on behalf of justice for Natalee … she/he forgets that the boycott of Aruba has everything to do with those who played a role in the events of that fateful morning and … those at all levels of the Aruban/Dutch administrations who were involved in the coverup or … had knowledge.

    48. on June 30th, 2007 11:06 pm

      #39 Thank you, you said what I was thinking after reading missingJustice. People don’t just “disappear” or as Arlene says “vanish”.

      I dare to speak for most of us in saying that we aren’t boycotting Aruba because we fear what might happen to us. Rather we are boycotting Aruba in honor and support of the Holloway/Twitty families and what they’ve been forced to endure by every single Aruban (and Dutch) Citizen who knows something about what happened and have kept their mouths shut. Yes, it involves the criminal Aruban government, but it involves others also.

      And as I said in another post, over the two years, Natalee has become part of our family too. We’ve had two years to get to know her because the crimes against her were not properly investigated and prosecuted and because several Arubans have taken upon themselves to smear Natalee and her mother rather than the perps who committed the crimes against her.

      Could you really imagine going someplace on vacation where someone who was like family to you “disappeared” and has never been found? As I said before, I would find myself searching for Natalee and weeping as I remembered just all the horrible things her family has been (and will continue to be) put through all because some criminals decided to cover up for the perps. I could not walk on the sand that I knew had been treaded upon by Joran, Deepak and Satish. I could not enjoy the sights as I remembered how each played out in what happened to Natalee.

      We do warn others not to vacation in Aruba because of the huge number of robberies (based on population and knowing that most of those robberies are committed on tourists) and because we know that IF a crime is committed against an American, Aruba doesn’t care about victims – it cares about its image as one crappy little Island. There will be NO justice for tourists on one crappy little Island in the event of a crime.

    51. on June 30th, 2007 11:20 pm

      >>>>The only purpose of people posting on this site is of destroying Aruba because Natalee went missing and because the ALE completely ruined the investigation and therefore the whole Island must suffer.>>>>>>>>

      WRONG!!! You can’t possibly know what you state as if fact, because you are only you. You don’t know what’s in my head or the heads of others who post here.

      The fact that some innocent people on Aruba get caught up in the suffering is I guess what one would call “collateral damage” during a time of war. The ALE didn’t “ruin” the investigation. I’m completely confident that they know exactly what happened. In fact, I think for the most part that most of us know what happened. The difference is that the ALE and investigators have all or most of the details and we only have some of them.

      I dare guess that there are ALE members and investigators who also have at least some proof and are using such to blackmail those involved – and if not now, they will in the future.

      You suggest that no one would protect Joran, Deepak and Satish. We have from Paulus’ own mouth that he would do anything to protect Joran. You can also bet that Joran’s God father and Deepak and Satish’s relative (Cousin Dompig) would also have an interest in protecting them. Then there’s the “friends” of Paulus – along with those that he might have dirt on.

    52. Mike on June 30th, 2007 11:43 pm


      if your real arubans are so worried it would only take a couple of them to take pvs, urine (the next time the sob shows his face) and the other 2 perps out and tie them to a rock and start breaking their legs and bones with a baseball bat and it wouldn’t take very long and they would tell what happened and then they can be heroes and the boycott would end. why don’t you tell your buddies to try that instead of crying about hurting the regular arubans. it has been 2 years and not a damn one of these so called good arubans has opened their damn mouths so NO i do not feel one damn bit sorry for them.

    53. Carpe Noctem on June 30th, 2007 11:46 pm

      Great going to the N.O. team!!!

      MissingJustice… piss on your innocent Arubans,

      and how friggin’ DARE YOU speak of MISSING

      WHITE WOMAN SYNDROME. Quit your whining! I don’t know

      which channel you’ve been watching, but the mainstream

      media where I am has reported on Aruba and the way they

      mishandled the Natalee Holloway Invetigation so much…

      people now say….

      Whatever happens, WE DON’T WANNA BE AN ARUBA!”

      Aruba is an effing worldwide JOKE.

      Americans owe the Aruban nothing, they let the

      gang-raping serial

      murdering Van der sloot and Kalpoe families walk free

      to continue to stalk the island!

      I was taken aback tonight when I stopped and read

      the latest Wikipedia article on the Natalee Holloway

      Case via Natalee’s Wikipedia page. They actually devote

      a small paragraph to the MISSING WHITE WOMAN SYNDROME.

      > That is absolute reverse racism, plain and simple!!!

      In my opinion, the Wikipedia article is

      too focused on Natalee’s behavior. Natalee had

      a track record, a good one! Her student career was


      Especially when you juxtapose that

      with that brutal murdering

      raping carnivore’s Joran Van der sloot’s record.

      Joran Van der sloot,

      A murder/raping

      POS that has been caught lying and disrespecting Natalee and

      her family time and time again! Also, his fat sack of swamp

      gas of a lying pig of a mother… Anita Van der sloot,

      and his murdering raping, pedophile, alcoholic of father,

      that takes great pleasure in laying pipe to every living

      thing on the island that is too slow to get up and run away!


      likes to screw anything that moves, that is how Joran has a

      brother, that is one of the biggest drug running creeps on

      the island! (Lorenzo Van der sloot Van Rijn) Anita must have been in Holland again when Paulus put the stones to something to make a “RENZO.”

      The gang-raping tourist assassinating island of Aruba and

      the innocent teenage girl murdering Van der sloot and

      Kalpoe families are getting precisely what the deserve!




      Maybe somebody will murder a Van der sloot or Kalpoe

      family member soon, and then the authorities can lie to

      them over and over, and torment the family mentally about

      where the body was hidden? Maybe Joran Deepak Satish or

      Paulus will be executed soon and their family members can

      read lies about them spewed out by people who’ve been caught

      on record lying repeatedly? I would not be surprised if it

      happened. When you treat people like the Van der sloot and

      Kalpoe carnivores treat people, BAD THINGS HAPPEN. WHATEVER

      I know this -

      It will never be over until Joran Van der sloot gets

      what he deserves! As long as Aruba stands in the way of

      that, Aruba will suffer.


    54. Brie on June 30th, 2007 11:56 pm

      Joran, Paulus and the Kalpoes need to turn themselves in before the natives of Aruba take things into their own hands, that’s what the drug lords are counting on. So, either way, I think we’re looking at the curtain call!

      Joran has dragged alot of people into his crime, beginning with the two innocent security guards. So, if you want to place blame, you can begin there. But not here!

      Joran, the bad seed !

      Of course you know more Van Der Straaten. When Paulus called you to see the trouble your godson got himself into; you two decided to get rid of Natalee by turning her body over to Rene. You thought he would dispose of her body. Well did he do like you paid him to do or……………
      Remember; Lorenzo does not live far from where Rene was found murdered. Oh I’m sorry or do you call that suicide
      on Aruba?

      And about the fact that she needs her voice heard wherever Aruba advertises their tourism, just because one of 6 people since 1996 goes missing on the island, doesn’t mean that the Aruban People need to have their lives come crashing down by over-exaggerating over this case.

      Comment by MissingJustice | June 30, 2007, 4:01 pm

      I was a voice for Natalee in Boston and I was suprised by how many people didn’t know about the terrible nightmare natalee and her family have gone through. Yes there were plenty who didn’t know who she was. Many have also forgotten but seeing her picture they quickly remembered..It was like seeing a long lost friend..I see we are not alone anymore as the most dutch people are thoroughly disgusted about the coverup as well. Natalee isnt just America’s girl anymore!! The Aruban people need to stand up to there corrupt govt!!

      1 out of 6 people goes missing since 1996? Thats sounds like a exagerated figure even for Aruba!! All I know as its been about a decade(not exact) since a american was murdered in Aruba. They all have either vanished or they killed themselves.Lets pray this gets solved because eventually this will turn into a active and organized boycott. Everybody is tired and losing patience with this ridiculous attempt at a coverup!!

    66. Richard on July 1st, 2007 5:51 am

      What happens to the people of Aruba is their concern.

      What happens to American people is our concern. We know that “something bad” happened to Natalee, and that there is a cover-up on Aruba to protect certain individuals.

      That’s basically the whole story — all that we need to know. We owe Aruba and its people nothing … except a kick where it hurts for their treatment of the Holloway Twitty family.

      Any leech can attach itself to a living animal and feed. It can do the same with a human … but the difference is, once we realize this we can do something about it.

      Literally and figuratively, Aruba has sucked enough blood from us.

      Someone’s stats are all screwed up. It’s 11 missing including a missing Aruban woman that nobody on that rock gave a damm about.

      They are all ages, all races, and all creeds. No one is exempt from the Aruban Cover-up machine. They’re all about equal opportunity.

      Some family vacation spot. Come to Aruba and if something bad happens, we’ll make sure you never get the final paperwork and never learn what became of your loved one.

      It’s gonna be a century before that image is shed. They did it to themselves, and now they pay. It’s only fair. Play hard-ball and you better expect to get a fast ball in the teeth once in a while.

      Now Aruba doesn’t like that we are using a potato gun to fire back at that crooked Authorities. It’s not supposed to be this way. They lie, we are all supposed to believe every word they say. That’s how it worked in the past. Well, it’s a new day. Actually that day was 5-30-2005.

AND in this case, Natalee didn’t really “go missing”. Her body was disposed of by creeps who didn’t care fig about her or her family and hasn’t been yet found because of all the people in Aruba involved in the cover up. Tourism was the name of this “missing” game.

      Anyone who really cares about the “poor innocent Aruban people” will put pressure on the numerous Arubans and Dutch who DO KNOW what happened instead of coming here and acting like it’s no big deal that “only 6 people” when missing on Aruba.

      Like Beth and Dave, we have begged the Aruban people to come forward and tell what they know. Beth and Dave even put on a quarter of a million dollars as an incentive. We know for a fact that there are numerous people who know at least something about that night. As long as they keep their traps shut, THEY are the ones to blame for One Crappy Little Island going into the toilet.

      With the numerous trolls coming to SM, Aruba should have a big hint by now – we ain’t gonna quit. So direct your energy where it might do some good. Knock on Kalpoes’ door. Send Freddy and the other thugs a message. Spill their guts or “innocent arubans” will continue to get hurt while the SM’s direct their attention to Justice for Natalee and her family. You can come back in 10 years and see that the issue of Justice for Natalee Holloway and her family will not have died down.

      We Americans will seek justice for Americans. Arubans can seek justice for Arubans by attacking the correct sources.

      Since you have the numbers, why don’t you tell us who the innocent people are living on Aruba? How many are there and how innocent are they? Why are their lives being defended by you than the life of a tourist? Aren’t they supposed to help keep their island “safe” for tourists? Don’t forget, even the taxi driver driving Beth and Jug from the airport knew who Joran was. Now why is that??? And, Joran told Greta that he and his friends had done the same thing 20 times before and nothing had ever happened. Don’t you think some of those “innocent people living on Aruba” are aware of the sexual predators that live amongst them? And what they do for kicks?

      Seems to me that those “innocent people of Aruba” should get spitting mad at their government for not solving this case earlier. And, those that know anything about Natalee’s case should speak up!!

      #72 last summer, a l6 yr. old aruban girl was gangraped by an adult and several of her fellow students. the rapists were never charged with anything although there was plenty of evidence including the cellphone pics made by the rapists themselves. the girl had to be separated from her family and shipped off to another island to finish her education. the “good” people of aruba sat on their hands and didn’t complain about the atrocity except for jossy mansur who did at least implore the rapists to erase the pics from their phones and not put them out on the internet.

      even though aruba spends millions of dollars a year advertising the safety and low crime rates on the island and assure potential tourists of their safety, why would anyone trust the aruban govt. to protect or at least prosecute the offenders when bad things happen to our tourists when they don’t even take care of or care about the terrible things that happen to their own women and children? horrible things happen to people everywhere in the world, but on aruba, keeping the tourist dollars flowing in counts more than tourist welfare and safety. it’s much to easy for the govt. to promise action and pretend they have your best interest at heart, and then quietly toss the complaints in the trash can when the offended tourist inevitably goes home. that way their crime statistics stay low, and they don’t have to work too hard at doing what’s right.

      #72 don’t forget that the innocent people of Aruba could shut down C&C or at least warn young girls what is about to happen to them. Heck those innocent people of Aruba could even form a possey in C&C to hand out flyers, protect the young girls, keep a watch over the perps, etc.

      But Aruba doesn’t care what happens to Tourists. They only want to tourists to come and spend money. “What happens on one little crappy island, stays on one little crappy island”

      Justice will indeed prevail, when it stands upon legs willing to carry out a swift and honest search, when hearts driven by integrity begin to truly investigate and INTERROGATE.

      Justice will prevail, when murdering liars are the ones who become the “CONTAINED”, and the brutally victimized unlawfully CONTAINED little girl named Natalee Holloway is finally SET FREE.

      Justice will prevail when HUMAN RIGHTS become NON-NEGOTIABLE in Aruba.

      Justice will prevail when VICTIMS RIGHTS are VALUED in Aruba.



      Justice will prevail in Aruba when the TOURIST’S LIFE is something valued, and the perversions of criminals are NOT TOLERATED.

      Justice will prevail: WHEN ARUBA’S TOURISM PACKAGE OF

      Brie 44: That is were my thinking has taken me: To San Nicolas
      I was an advocate of everything happening at the Van der Sloots; but the more I read and more maps I get; my direction has turned to the southeast end of the island.
      Whatever bad happened, happened down or around San Nicolas.
      Rene was from San Nicolas, worked at The Industrial Incinerator and was found murdered in Sabana Basora.
      Robert Wayne Benson worked in Cura Cabie; only a few blocks away from Lorenzo’s.
      Mr. Benson was buried in the same cemetery as Rene.
      I have to feed the messengers could be NAPA part Store driver’s delivering parts to his shop where he worked.
      The KIA is in San Nicolas. Prostitution is legal in San Nicolas. There are many after hour clubs and “Gentlemen’s Bars”. In San Nicolas there is another funeral home Ad Patres on Renselaer Straat; a block or so away from the police station off of RT 1A and only a few blocks away from a local church on the other side called Rte 1B. Two banks with outside ATMs on Zeppenfeld Straat are only a few blocks from the funeral home. Jan Van der Straaten worked out of the KIA.
      Let’s try a different scenario.
      Deepak uses his car because it resembles a taxi cab. If he puts a taxi globe on the dash it could be easily mistaken for one. They make one stop to call ahead that they have the female tourist. Guido’s Nissan with Geoff and Freddy; follow Deepak to Rave’ house.
      Joran is a loose cannon and the drug dealers would like to off him; but they can’t because of Paulus and Van der Straaten. So the drug dealers set him up to shut him up. Once inside Joran has an altercation and Deepak, Satish and Joran are forced out. On the way back to Hooiberg, Deepak drops off Joran at the McDonalds in Santa Cruz. Paulus gets a call to pick up his son at the Santa Cruz McDonalds and also where to find Natalee. Paulus calls his buddy Van der Straaten and they meet in San Nicolas police station and go to the medical center where Natalee has been taken. They can’t do anything for Natalee but they decide to get rid of her body. “I know she is dead because I have seen the evidence”. Quote Jan VDS.
      Van der Straaten calls the Ad Patres funeral home and they get in touch with Rene. Meanwhile; Paulus goes to the ATM for hush money.
      Remember the VCB shirt (Geoff and Michael Dompig both worked for it but the police could not get along with them), the sport sun glasses, the foam with the teeth marks and the Lysol bottle (which probably contained cleaning fluid) were found in the colony section of San Nicolas; or what is called Lagoville near Weg Fontein. The bloody mattress was found near Grapefield Beach right outside and north of San Nicolas.
      Rumors were flying initially that Natalee’s clothes were found at Lorenzo’s.
      What else is in San Nicolas? The Colorado lighthouse, the Incinerator, the International School and the pet cemetery are there; just to mention a few.
