I liked her. Her voice is better than that fool on Hard Balls.
Peruvian President wants death penalty for van der Sloot
Last Update: 11:40 am
Birmingham, Al (WIAT) Will Joran van der Sloot face the death penalty if convicted of murdering Stephany Flores? Will the prime suspect in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway pay the price for a crime in another country?
According to Radio Netherlands Worldwide (RNW), President Alan García of Peru has said he wants to reintroduce the death penalty in his country. If the president has his way, Dutch murder suspect Joran van der Sloot could face execution. Legal obstacles, however, make it unlikely that Peru brings back the death penalty anytime soon.
Mr García was referring to child molesters and killers, saying that “certain crimes must be paid for with the criminal’s life”. The president argued that if Peru executed a hundred criminals a year, that would be proportionally the same as in China, “where 5,000 rapists, thieves and corrupt mayors were shot last year”. “I would gladly decapitate 50 child rapists,” Mr García told reporters. A recent poll showed that 80 percent of Peruvians favoured a return of the death penalty.
Van der Sloot is in the Castro Castro prison in Lima charged with killing 21 year old student Stephany Flores…found dead in van der Sloot’s hotel room, five years after the disappearance of Natalee Holloway on Aruba. The Mountain Brook teen was on a graduation trip to the island and was last seen in van der Sloot’s company.
One of van der Sloot’s fellow inmates in Castro Castro is American William Trickett Smith. He was recently extradited from the U.S. to face charges he murdered his Peruvian wife, dismembered her, put the body parts in a suitcase and tossed it in the ocean. The so-called “Suitcase Murder” has elicited as much anger in Peru as the Flores/van der Sloot case.
In the background of that case is an indictment of van der Sloot here in Birmingham on wire fraud and extortion charges stemming from the Natalee Holloway disappearance.
According to RNW, Capital punishment was abolished in Peru in 1979, except for cases of treason in wartime. Reinstating the death penalty would be an uphill battle requiring a change to Peru’s constitution.
Peru’s Justice Minister also points out the Interamerican Convention on Human Rights forbid the implementation of the death penalty. The latter treaty also stipulates that “the death penalty shall not be reestablished in states that have abolished it.”
Rita was on SM not long ago…..her voice isnt like it used to be…
she is very interesting….i am looking forward to hearing what she has to say.
I miss Rita Cosby on TV. I’d rather listen to her anytime before Nancy Grace or Greta.
Rita Cosby is probably one of the nicest individuals that I have ever met in the media.
She is truly one of the good guys.
I have two autographed pictures of Rita Crosby.
i agree with both of you Klaasend and SM.
i miss seeing Rita…wish she had her own show!
