Natalee Holloway Missing in Aruba: Joran Van der Sloot’s US Attorney Joe Tacopina Calls his Client Sick, a Sociopath and Despicable … “he’s a sick kid”

“He’s a sick kid …”

Joran Van der Sloot’s US attorney, Joe Tacopina, has finally said something that we can all agree on when discussing Joran to Greta Van Susteren … “he’s a sick kid”.  The comment was made by Tacopina in an interview with Greta Van Susteren, ‘On the Record’ in the aftermath of Joran’s new disclosure and latest version of the truth that he sold Natalee Holloway into slavery. Tacopina was also critical of Joran being paid for an interview, yet I am sure none of his clients had ever been offered and accepted a similar deal in the past.

One thing that we all need to remember when it comes to sociopaths, among the many lies they tell, there is some truth mixed in between. There is also a reason and a need to continually keep the focus on them. Almost as if they want to be caught.

Joran van der Sloot’s attorney, Joe Tacopina, believes his client has become a sociopath and can’t be believed.

TACOPINA: You paid him for a tape that he made and wound up getting an hour interview with him. And so be it, Greta. Great TV, great ratings- -

VAN SUSTEREN: Do you have a problem with that?

TACOPINA: Yes, I do have a problem with it, Greta, because if you offered Joran $10,000 tomorrow and ask him to tell you a fifth story, he would do it.

Clearly, he’s a sick kid. Clearly, I have nothing to say in defense of his actions, Greta. OK?

VAN SUSTEREN: Do you deny…?

TACOPINA: But I still tell you, and I stand by the notion that the investigation regarding the disappearance of Natalee Holloway has not led to Joran. That’s the bottom line.

No one expects anyone to believe anything this kid has to say anymore. Quite frankly, he’s on the verge of sociopath and despicable, but – (Full Transcript)

From Amigo, “Joran is sick and if offered enough money, you can have an interview with him.” One thing that Amigo and Joe Tacopina need to get straight with this Joran Van der Sloot interview and yet another version of the disappearance of Natalee Holloway is that Joran approached Greta and Fox News, not the other way around. It was Joran Van der Sloot who one again needed to be in the media’s eye and the focus be on him.

“Joran is sick and if offered enough money, you can have an interview with him.” With these words Joe Tacopina, the American lawyer of Joran van der Sloot, suggested that Fox News possibly made him talk in Thailand with dollars. In a broadcast of the American news channel earlier this week, Joran told the famous journalist Greta van Susteren yet another version of the disappearance of Natalee Holloway. Now the missing girl would have been sold to an Aruban facilitator.

The question that needs to be asked is if Joran’s attorney Joe Tacopina believes his client is sick and a sociopath, what crimes is Joran Van der Sloot capable of? This is not just about lying. If one is sick and a sociopath we are talking about the specter of someone committing crimes far worse than lying. What else is this sick kid capable of? Funny, in 2005 through 2007 Joe Tacopina and the other attorneys for Joran tried to portray him as an innocent kid mixed up in a disappearance. If as Tacopina states that Joran has no involvement in Natalee Holloway’s disappearance than why does he continue to fixate on the crime? A crime that so far he has gotten away with?

Texas EquuSearch to Return to Central Florida, Merritt Island … To Search for Missing Shawn Waters

Texas EquuSearch is returning to the Central Florida are for a search; however, this time it is not for missing Caylee Anthony. TES is back in Florida to search for missing 31 year old Shawn Walters. Walters has been missing since Sunday, November 23, 2008 when he was last seen fishing near Merritt Island. Texas Equusearch moved in after Brevard County officials and the Coast Guard suspended their search for Shawn Waters on November 26.

Jonathan Shawn Evan Waters’ gheenoe was found overturned by a fisherman around 4 p.m. Monday.


Missing Shawn Waters

Equusearch moved in after Brevard County officials and the Coast Guard suspended their search for Shawn Waters on November 26. He disappeared from Merritt Island’s Manatee Cove two days earlier.

Team leader Tim Miller scanned through sonar images Saturday night in search of any signs of the father of three.

They did not find Waters, but they believe his body will surface in the next few days.

He said Waters’ family approached the volunteer group. More families with missing loved ones will now be able to approach the group also.

Miller revealed Equusearch could soon become a permanent fixture with the formation of a new chapter in Orlando. It’s the organization’s first branch outside its home base in Houston.

“Many people want to start branches in different states, but we just seen how everybody came together for Caylee,” Miller said. “We’re just getting organized right now.”


Once again Texas EquuSearch shows all that they are more than just being about one missing person. Texas EquuSearch has always been about searching for as many missing persons as they can no matter whether the media covers the story or not. All missing persons should be searched for and recovered. It is most certain that Shawn Waters’ case will not be broadcast every night and there will be no media satellite trucks or 24/7 live internet feeds that pertain to this case. However, one thing is certain … TES will be searching.

Equusearch also is showing that each missing persons case can benefit the next. The attention that was drawn from the case of missing 3 year old Caylee Anthony and the many people who volunteered has made it possible for TES to form a chapter in the Orlando area for missing persons cases. Out of unfortunate and bad situations like the case of missing Caylee does come some good. Individuals coming together to help in other missing persons cases. Always remember, just because the national media does not cover a case does not mean that there are not many other missing persons that need attention and to be found. Everyone deserves to be brought home.

Hillary Clinton to Get Secretary of State, Bill Must Provide Secret Donor Names

According to reports, Barack Obama will introduce Hillary Clinton on Monday as his Secretary of State. As Michelle Malkin stated, in the past the Clintons had long “refused to tell the public who was donating millions upon millions of dollars to Billy Boy’s charitable foundation and library fund during her presidential run”. However, it does not come without numerous strings attached. One can only speculate how a Clinton-Obama alliance will manifest itself in the future. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are the ultimate “Odd Couple”, throw former President Bill Clinton into the mix and this may only represent headaches to come for the Obama Administration.

The officials requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly for the transition team.

To make it possible for his wife to become the top U.S. diplomat, the officials said, former President Clinton agreed:

  • to disclose the names of every contributor to his foundation since its inception in 1997 and all contributors going forward.
  • to refuse donations from foreign governments to the Clinton Global Initiative, his annual charitable conference.
  • to cease holding CGI meetings overseas.
  • to volunteer to step away from day-to-day management of the foundation while his wife is secretary of state.
  • to submit his speaking schedule to review by the State Department and White House counsel.
  • to submit any new sources of income to a similar ethical review.

US Troops Kill Taliban Commander Haji Yakub Hiding in Woman’s Clothing … No Virgins for You

Taliban commander killed was dressed in a burqa … No Virgins for You.

Define irony and cowardice … a member of Taliban forces hiding behind the guise of being dressed like a women. Hiding under a burqa and pretending to be a women, the very people that the Taliban treat as secondary citizens and treat much worse. The Taliban treat women like dirt; however, when it comes time to hide from US troops, the cowards dress like women. Isn’t that special.

It is being reported that US Troops have killed Haji Yakub, a Taliban commander, and several other militants in Afghanistan. The Taliban commander was actually trying to hide from US forces wearing womens clothing, dressed in a burqa. Islamofascits of the world should be very proud of one of theirs trying to evade capture by the infidels dressed as a woman. As the Gateway Pundit states, when he tried to kill US soldiers he was shot dead in his burqa.

Gunbattles and airstrikes by NATO and Afghan troops killed 53 militants in Afghanistan, including a wanted Taliban commander who tried to hide from soldiers under a woman’s burqa, officials said Saturday.

The U.S. forces targeting the commander surrounded a house Friday in Ghazni province and ordered everyone inside to leave, a military statement said.

Six women and 12 children left the building, but while soldiers were questioning the women they discovered one was actually a man dressed in a burqa, the traditional all-encompassing dress that most Afghan women wear. The man, later identified as the targeted commander Haji Yakub, tried to attack the soldiers and was killed, the military said.

Yakub allegedly directed roadside bomb and suicide attacks against Afghanistan’s government and coalition forces in Ghazni, according to the statement. Three other militants were killed in the operation, it said.

US: Taliban commander killed in Afghanistan

In the Ghazni raid, the U.S. said coalition forces discovered Yakub as they questioned a group of women and children inside a compound. The Taliban commander was dressed in a burqa, a traditional robe that covers the entire body. He was killed when he “attempted to engage the force,” the statement said.

More Gun Safety … NY Giants WR Plaxico Burress Suffers Accidental Gunshot Wound at Nightclub

One Giant mistake after another for Plaxico Burress.

Once again Plaxico Burress winds up with a Giant mistake. More headaches for the Giants_large_helmetNew York FootballGiants and dealing with Plaxico Burress. It appears that NY Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress could have used some gun safety lessons as well. So much for Plexico’s ailing hamstring keeping him out of this Sunday’s NFL game, the gun shot wound trumps a pulled muscle. The Giants WR accidently shot himself in the leg Friday night. The incident is reportedly to have occurred in a night club; however, the exact one has not been released. The talented Giant wide receiver just cannot seem to stay out of off field trouble. Why do we think that there is much more to this story than is being initially reported? Because guns just go off by themselves.

New York Giants star wide receiver Plaxico Burress accidentally shot himself in the leg Friday, according to multiple media reports.

Burress was hospitalized with gunshot injuries Friday night that were not believed to be life-threatening, FOX reported Saturday.

A spokesman for the Giants on Saturday told PA SportsTicker that the team had no comment, although they acknowledged they are aware there was an incident.

Burress has not practice all week due to an ailing hamstring and already had been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins.

According to Newsday, Plaxico Burress was hospitalized last night after a loaded gun he was carrying accidentally fired, causing injuries to his leg that are not life-threatening. Imagine that, the loaded gun just accidently fired all by itself? His wounds may not be life threatening; however, the fact that he was carrying a concealed weapon with a FL permit may land Burriss in more off-field hot water.
