Manhunt Underway for Suspect who Shot & Killed Police Officer in Shreveport, Louisiana (Update: Police Arrest Grover D. Cannon Suspected of Shooting Officer Thomas LaValley)
POLICE LIVES MATTER!!!
The Shrevesport Times is reporting that a police officer was shot and killed in the line of duty Wednesday night. According to Shreveport Police Department spokesman Cpl. Marcus Hines, the department received a call at 9:14 p.m. about a suspicious person at the 3500 block of Del Rio Street. Hines said a man inside a home on the block was armed and making threats toward a family member. The officer was hit several times and was taken to University Health but died. The officers name has yet to be named. A manhunt is currently underway for the killer. Shreveport police spokesman Bill Goodin stated that investigators believe they know who the suspect is and are obtaining a warrant for his arrest.
A manhunt was underway early Thursday after a police officer was gunned down in Shreveport, Louisiana.
The officer was shot multiple times while responding to a report of a suspicious person armed with a gun inside a home at around 9 p.m. local time (10 p.m. ET) on Wednesday, authorities said.
“We’ll continue searching until suspect is caught and brought to justice,” Shreveport Police spokesman Cpl. Marcus Hines told NBC News.
He said dozens of officers were involved in search, adding: “We’re not going to stop looking. He will be found. It’s not a question of if it’s when.”
The officer’s identity was not immediately released. “Our request is that everyone pray for the family of the officer involved,” Hines added.

In Jackson, Miss., officers had searched at least two Greyhound buses that arrived from Louisiana in a manhunt for Grover D. Cannon, 27, accused of shooting a Shreveport police officer multiple times. Police were monitoring other buses; Greyhound has five buses daily from Shreveport to Jackson, some with intermediate stops.
But based on several tips, Shreveport officers found Cannon less than a mile from where Officer Thomas LaValley, 29, was shot around 9:15 p.m. CT Wednesday as the officer responded to a call of an armed man making threats toward a family member.
Cannon is being charged with first-degree murder in the death of LaValley, who joined the department in 2011. Cannon also was wanted for attempted second-degree murder for the July 15 shooting of Darren Williams, 45, Shreveport police Chief Willie Shaw said.
“Thomas LaValley was a best friend in every sense. Just a true genuine person from south Louisiana. You couldn’t ask for anyone better to be in your corner,” said friend Casey Habich. “He was one of the good guys. He was a caretaker and went above and beyond to make sure his family and friends were always well looked after.”
Memphis Police Officer Shooting Suspect Tremaine Wilbourn Says, “I’m not a cold-blooded killer and two, I am not a coward.”
WRONG ON BOTH ACCOUNTS LOSER … DUDE, THAT IS ALL YOU ARE BUT A COWARD!!!
A note to Tremaine Wilbourn, not only are you a cold blooded killer and a coward, you are also a felon, loser, and a pathetic POS who does not deserve to be allowed to breath the same air as the rest of the other law abiding citizens. This scumbag had already spent time in prison on bank robbery charges and was headed back there due to violating his parole. But he is not a coward for shooting an unsuspecting police officer. The coward surrendered to police because he knew if he kept running from the law after killing a police officer, he would have been shot dead in a fair gun fight.
“He wanted to make it a point, to say that ‘I want you to know one thing.’” Toney Armstrong told reporters Monday night. “I asked ‘What was that?’ He said ‘I want you to know that one, I’m not a cold-blooded killer and two, I am not a coward.’”
Sorry if the truth hurts COWARD.
BARACK OBAMA, THE POVERTY PRESIDENT … IMAGINE THAT, MORE CHILDREN IN POVERTY TODAY THAN DURING 2008 RECESSION.
Since Barack Obama has become president, 3 million more children live in poverty, including an amazing number of black children. So much for the first black president changing the conditions for black American children, instead he has made matters worse. This is simply criminal, especially as this president has caused division among the races and promoted class warfare. Yet, Obama has done nothing to help the poor and those in poverty, even with his redistribution of wealth. There is a reason why Obama is known as the food stamp president. This is a kin to child abuse. Imagine what the MSM news headlines would be if a white Republican president had resided under such conditions for black and Hispanic children? Obama is simply an epic failure and will go down as the worst president in history.
But blacks and Hispanics continue to vote For Democrats in droves as their lives are made more miserable by their liberal agenda. If this same data occurred during the presidency of a Republican the media would be asking, why does the GOP hate children.
Ever since President Obama took office, the poverty rate among children has soared to 22 percent, with three million more children living in poor conditions, according to an authoritative new report released Tuesday.
The 2015 “KIDS COUNT” report from the Annie E. Casey Foundation said that the percentage of children living in poverty jumped from 18 percent in 2008, the year Obama was elected, to 22 percent in 2013. It added that the rate dropped from 2012 to 2013, in line with the improving economy.
• The child poverty rate among African Americans (39 percent) was more than double the rate for non-Hispanic whites (14 percent) in 2013.
• In 2013, three in 10 children (22.8 million) lived in families where no parent had full-time, year-round employment. Since 2008, the number of such children climbed by nearly 2.7 million.
• Roughly half of all American Indian children (50 percent) and African-American children (48 percent) had no parent with full-time, year-round employment in 2013, compared with 37 percent of Latino children, 24 percent of non-Hispanic white children and 23 percent of Asian and Pacific Islander children.”
More from USA Today ... So much for the war on poverty.
“The fact that it’s happening is disturbing on lots of levels,” said Laura Speer, the associate director for policy reform and advocacy at the Casey Foundation, a non-profit based in Baltimore. “Those kids often don’t have the access to the things they need to thrive.” The foundation says its mission is to help low-income children in the U.S. by providing grants and advocating for policies that promote economic opportunity.
The report examined data from several federal agencies ranging from 2008 to 2013 to assess state-by-state trends of 16 factors of children’s well-being, including economics, education, health and family and community. It found that one in four children — a total of 18.7 million kids — lived in low-income households in 2013; low-income families were defined as those who use more than 30% of their pre-tax income for housing.
The report also examined racial disparities between children living in low-income households. Black, Hispanic and American Indian children were more than twice as likely to live in poverty than white children, the report said.
Kid Rock Tells People that are Protesting Him & Al Sharpton’s Action Network Demanding He Denounce the Confederate Flag to “Kiss His Ass”!!!
LAST TIME A CHECKED THIS WAS STILL AMERICA, KID ROCK IS CORRECT, THEY CAN KISS HIS ASS …
We have now reached critical mass insanity when a flag becomes more important and to blame for all the ills of racism and what has happened to blacks in this country, than the individual and vile acts of people and the liberal laws and policies that have caused blacks to be forever dependent on the government. Personally, I could care less about the Confederate battle flag, I am from the North. That being said, what is up with the bullying over demanding that private citizens of the United States be forced to do something, or else?
Al Sharpton’s National Action Network has publicly called on Kid Rock to denounce the Confederate flag and stop using it during his performances, claiming the flag is a racist symbol. Kid Rock responded to the group’s request in a statement that Fox News host Megyn Kelly read on the air Wednesday night, well read most of. Kid Rock said … “Please tell the people who are protesting to kiss my ass”.
Good for Kid Rock, some one has to stand up to these race-bating bullies. The Detroit chapter of National Action Network (NAN), the NYC based group founded by the Rev. Al Sharpton, also sent a letter requesting a meeting with Mary Barra, CEO of General Motors, which is sponsoring Rock’s summer tour. So if Kid Rock wont kneel down to these fools, they are going to look to extort and harass his sponsors. How unlike Al Sharpton. All these clowns got is some cutely phrased words calling Kid Rock, a home town Detroit hero who is a hero with the Confederate flag. Really? Just curious, when was the last time Kid Rock even used a Confederate flag in concert? Does it even matter to these people?
The Rev. Charles Williams II, who heads the Detroit activist group, insisted that GM withdraw its support from Rock, saying the flag represents racism and hatred.
Rock told the Free Press in 2002 that he used the flag during that year’s tour as a nod to Southern rock and a rebel spirit. It’s unclear how recently Rock has displayed Confederate flag imagery in concert, but some fans have told the Free Press it has not appeared onstage in several years, including Rock’s current tour.
UPDATE I: A note to these idiots who would go after a flag because its easy to deflect attention away from their own failings to their people and the liberal politics that has devastated and destroyed the city of Detroit over the years. To show you how misguided and how absurd all of this is, in 2011 Kid Rock received the organization’s Great Expectations Award, honoring him for his advocacy of Detroit city. He did so by attending with his teenage son Robert Ritchie Jr., who is black, the 56th Annual NAACP Fight for Freedom Fund Dinner at Cobo Hall on May 1, 2011 in Detroit, Michigan. Note to all, it was the NAACP who gave Kid Rock this award and guess what, he was using the Stars and Bars back then as well.
UPDATE II: Don’t forget that Kid Rock played in Washington, DC celebrating the inauguration of President Barack Obama in 2009. No one seemed to care of his use of of the Confederate flag back then. However, since then Kid Rock has basically called Obama a disappointment and a failure as the country has never been more divided. Hey Kid, that is what community agitators do.
STEPPING DOWN …
Rachel Dolezal, the woman who faked her racial identity, has resigned as the president of the NAACP Spokane chapter. Rachel Dolezal portrayed herself as a black woman; however, she was outed by her parents as being white. Much of her past was made up. Her estranged parents told reporters last week that she is “Caucasian by birth,” with Czech, Swedish, German and a trace of Native American ancestry, even though she has been representing herself as black for years. The revelation that the Spokane NAACP chapter president was in fact white only had one conclusion. THIS WAS IT. You pretty much knew the handwriting was on the wall when Dolezal was scheduled to address the matter at a chapter meeting on Monday night, but the meeting was postponed.
So how much of this resignation was internal pressure? They can say all the right things externally, but as one can plainly see from the VIDEO below, there were some if not many who were openly upset that a white woman dare pass herself off as black. The activists stated, “I am sorry, you may not copy ‘MY’ people’s struggle.” So why is it being reported that she faked her racial identity, rather than she feels like she is a black woman? Hmm, isn’t that bigoted?
Dear Executive Committee and NAACP Members,
It is a true honor to serve in the racial and social justice movement here in Spokane and across the nation. Many issues face us now that drive at the theme of urgency. Police brutality, biased curriculum in schools, economic disenfranchisement, health inequities, and a lack of pro-justice political representation are among the concerns at the forefront of the current administration of the Spokane NAACP. And yet, the dialogue has unexpectedly shifted internationally to my personal identity in the context of defining race and ethnicity.
I have waited in deference while others expressed their feelings, beliefs, confusions and even conclusions – absent the full story. I am consistently committed to empowering marginalized voices and believe that many individuals have been heard in the last hours and days that would not otherwise have had a platform to weigh in on this important discussion. Additionally, I have always deferred to the state and national NAACP leadership and offer my sincere gratitude for their unwavering support of my leadership through this unexpected firestorm. [...]
It is with complete allegiance to the cause of racial and social justice and the NAACP that I step aside from the Presidency and pass the baton to my Vice President, Naima Quarles-Burnley. It is my hope that by securing a beautiful office for the organization in the heart of downtown, bringing the local branch into financial compliance, catalyzing committees to do strategic work in the five Game Changer issues, launching community forums, putting the membership on a fast climb, and helping many individuals find the legal, financial and practical support needed to fight race-based discrimination, I have positioned the Spokane NAACP to buttress this transition.
From Cornell William Brooks, NAACP President & CEO:
“The NAACP is not concerned with the racial identity of our leadership but the institutional integrity of our advocacy. Our focus must be on issues not individuals. Ms. Rachel Dolezal has decided to resign to ensure that the Spokane branch remains focused on fighting for civil and human rights. This resignation today comes amidst the real work of the NAACP and the real challenges to our democracy. (more)

Rachel Dolezal, NAACP Leader & Civil Rights Activist Outed as White By Her Parents … Accused of Falsifying Race (VIDEO)
HMM, JUST CURIOUS … IF ITS OKAY FOR
BRUCE CAITLYN JENNER TO GO FROM A GUY TO A GIRL BECAUSE HE SHE FEELS LIKE ONE, WHY IS IT NOT OKAY FOR A WOMAN TO GO FROM WHITE TO BLACK?
Wouldn’t that be something if Rachel Dolezal, Washington states most prominent civil rights activist and president of the Spokane NAACP was white? So says Rachel Dolezal’s parents who have outed their daughter as being white. Her biological parents claim she is misrepresenting “major portions of her life,” including being born white. Her parents say that their daughter “is primarily German and Czech and of European descent.” Dolezal dismisses the controversy as little more than an ugly byproduct of family dysfunction.
This gives playing the race card a whole new meaning.
Controversy is swirling around one of the Inland Northwest’s most prominent civil rights activists, with family members of Rachel Dolezal saying the local leader of the NAACP has been falsely portraying herself as black for years.
Dolezal, 37, avoided answering questions directly about her race and ethnicity Thursday, saying, “I feel like I owe my executive committee a conversation” before engaging in a broader discussion with the community about what she described as a “multi-layered” issue.
“That question is not as easy as it seems,” she said after being contacted at Eastern Washington University, where she’s a part-time professor in the Africana Studies Program. “There’s a lot of complexities … and I don’t know that everyone would understand that.”
Dolezal is credited with re-energizing the Spokane chapter of the NAACP. She also serves as chairwoman of the city’s Office of Police Ombudsman Commission, where she identified herself as white, black and American Indian in her application for the volunteer appointment, and previously was education director for the Human Rights Education Institute in Coeur d’Alene.
In recent days, questions have arisen about her background and her numerous complaints to police of harassment. Members of her family are challenging her very identity, saying she has misrepresented major portions of her life.
Interesting. Of course there are some legal issues of knowingly falsifying your race on job applications, especially if they are government ones. However, the real test will come if it is determined to be true that she is white and not bi-racial as Rachel Dolezal claims. Will the NAACP do the racist and bigoted thing and fire her from being president of their Spokane, WA chapter? Does one have to be black to be an NAACP president? Wouldn’t that be racist and against federal laws of job discrimination? James Wilburn, former president of the Spokane NAACP chapter said that Dolezal’s race was not what had qualified her for the position in the organization. Really, we shall see.
Her parents, Ruthanne and Larry, live in a rural home in Troy, Montana. Her father described a young Dolezal as blonde, blue-eyed and freckled-face.
“No way to get around it,” he said. The couple say their daughter is pretending to be someone she’s not.
“Rachel has wanted to be somebody she’s not. She’s chosen not to just be herself but to represent herself as an African-American woman or a biracial person,” Ruthanne said.
A serious question has to be asked … if Bruce Jenner can become Caitlyn Jenner and celebrated as some cause celeb because he feels like he is really a woman, why can’t Rachel Dolezal make the claim she is a black woman trapped in a white woman’s body? Seriously, what’s the difference? If a man can think he is a woman because he feels so, why can’t a white woman be a black one, or vice-versa? Sorry, but the LGBT opened Pandora’s Box.
Rev. Ronald Wright of Justice Seekers Texas Warned Americans That a Domestic Terror Attack is Coming “And the Group is Not Going to be ISIS, It’s Going to be USIS”
DID THIS BLACK ACTIVIST PASTOR JUST THREATEN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA WITH A DOMESTIC TERROR ATTACK?
In the aftermath of the out of control pool party in McKinney, Texas caught on VIDEO, the subsequent police reaction to the mob of unruly kids, the protests and the resignation of the police officer Eric Casebolt comes the following disgusting, race-baiting and UN-Holy comments from Rev. Ronald Wright of Justice Seekers. Really, is this type of race-baiting rhetoric really necessary?
“We’re setting the stage for a terrorist attack in this country. And the group is not going to be ISIS, it’s going to be USIS, us against these unjust law officers and people who continue to allow racism to grow into this city.”
Rev. Ronald Wright, executive director of Justice Seekers Texas, warned of ISIS-style terror attacks in America from “us” because of “unjust law officers and people who continue to allow racism to grow into this city.” Where is his aarrest for making a terrorist threat? They forgot to mention is their mission statement, focusing on Domestic Terror attacks from USIS.
Founded February 2010 a newly formed Civil Rights and Social Justice Organization which focuses on Civil Rights and Social Justice (for all citizens), Education, Health, Employee Rights, Veterans Affairs, Domestic Violence, Juvenile Delinquency/Recidivism, Assisting ex-felons with employment opportunities, Rights of the incarcerated, probationers, and parolees.
NYPD Chief Bill Bratton says Hiring Black Officers is Difficult: They Cant Pass Background Checks Because “So Many Have Spent Time in Jail”
SO WHY IS IT SO DIFFICULT FOR POLICE FORCES TO RESEMBLE THE COMMUNITIES THEY PROTECT AND SERVE?
New York police commissioner Bill Bratton made a rather interesting comment when asked why more minorities are not hired as police officers to have police forces more resemble their minority neighborhoods and municipalities they serve. In a Guardian report, Bratton’s response was that too many non-white police recruits cannot pass the background checks and restrictions to the job because they have spent time in jail. in other words, convicted felons are automatically disqualified from the NYPD applicant pool, as well as anyone guilty of a domestic violence charge or who has been dishonorably discharged from the military. Bratton suggested that the stop and frisk program was to blame. Really, when did Bratton become such a liberal tool?
So what a are we supposed to do, lower the bar and allow felons to become police officers? I guess they would already know they law of the land of the jails, (sarcasm intended).
Hiring more non-white officers is difficult because so many would-be recruits have criminal records, the New York police commissioner, Bill Bratton, has said.
Police departments, responding to widespread protests against several high-profile police killings of black men, are boosting efforts to recruit more non-white officers. But budget restrictions, strained relations between police and minority communities and, according to Bratton, a history of indiscriminate policing tactics that disproportionately target black and Latino men complicate the department’s goal of racial parity.
Bratton blamed the “unfortunate consequences” of an explosion in “stop, question and frisk” incidents that caught many young men of color in the net by resulting in them being given a summons for a minor misdemeanor. As a result, Bratton said, the “population pool [of eligible non-white officers] is much smaller than it might ordinarily have been”.
UPDATE I: But speaking to CBS2, Bratton said, “We are making a mountain out of a mole hill. The Guardian report was incorrect and we are demanding a retraction.”
Bratton was quoted as blaming the “unfortunate consequences” of an explosion in stop and frisk incidents.
He also blamed a strained relationship between police and minority communities.
But speaking to CBS2, Bratton said, “We are making a mountain out of a mole hill. The Guardian report was incorrect and we are demanding a retraction.”
Bratton said he made the comments, but they were taken out of context.
Part 1: It Has Been 10 Years Since Natalee Holloway Went Missing, No Body … No Crime … And No One Tried, But We Know Damn Well Who Is Responsible, Don’t We Joran Van der Sloot?
ITS HARD TO BELIEVE IT HAS BEEN 10 YEARS …
May 30, 2005 … Alabama teen Natalee Holloway has gone missing in Aruba while on a class trip with her fellow Mountain Brook classmates to celebrate their graduation from high school, to begin their college careers and the rest of their lives. Or so they all thought. All of these young teens with their whole lives ahead of them, just celebrating one more time together before they went their separate ways in what was supposed to be a safe vacation surrounded by sand, sun and the sea. Like so many classes before them, a visit to Aruba was supposed to be the one last high school fling. Sadly, for Natalee Holloway it would be the one last thing she ever did in life, never to attend college, never to have the rest of her life. Enter Joran Van der Sloot, Deepak Kalpoe and Satish Kalpoe and everyone’s lives would be changed forever and not for the better.
Natalee Holloway and friends in Aruba 2005
The first post Scared Monkeys ever wrote on this missing persons case was entitled, ‘This Can’t Be Good For Tourism, Where’s Natalee Holloway’. At first glance, one night think it was rather crass and insensitive. But having visited Aruba since the 1970′s, having friends on the small Caribbean Island, even having dated a beautiful Aruba girl in my teens, and having lived and worked on Aruba, I pretty much knew what the prime concern would be for “One Happy Island” and that was to save its tourism industry at all cost. Even if it meant trying to push the dirt under the rug and hide things in the closet. The cover-up, collusion, corruption and cronyism would only be made worse in the case of missing Natalee Holloway when the individual last seen with the beautiful blond Alabama teen was Joran Van der Sloot, a boy of Dutch privilege who’s father was a judge in waiting with so many connections legally, politically and with law enforcement that all signs pointed toward the Holloway, Twitty and Reynold’s family being given the run around from the very beginning. I say this prior to ever having researched the case in depth or having talked to or met any of the family members. From experience, I knew the family was in for a hell of a time from past experiences on Aruba where the most simple of things are made into some of the most exasperating efforts in futility. I knew that Dave Holloway and Beth Twitty were in for a hell of a roller-coaster experience.
No one will ever convince me otherwise that the disappearance of Natalee Holloway and the subsequent search and investigation in Aruba was obstructed on two levels, one from the Van der Sloot family and Paulus Van der Sloot with his connections to prevent his son from going to prison and two, on a police, prosecution and government level to attempt to sweep this under the sand and save their economy that depended upon American tourism.
18 year old Natalee Holloway went missing on Aruba and was last seen leaving an Aruba bar, Carlos N’ Charlies, with three boys, Joran Van der Sloot, Deepak Kalpoe and Satish Kalpoe. The news of Natalee’s disappearance was not made public to the adults in attendance with the teens until the following day when it was time to head off for the airport to leave. Natalee was missing. From the outset, something was very wrong in how this case was being investigated. The Aruba police had the mindset that Natalee was just off having fun and she would return because this happens all the time. REALLY? That might have been some what okay reasoning for Aruba LE had any one of the three people Natalee was last with were missing too. However, they were not, they were already lying. What changed this case, brought it to the forefront and escalated it to new heights that we have never seen before in a missing persons case was that Aruba and the powers that be never imagines that the Holloway/Twitty family would have arrived so quickly on Aruba and hit the ground running trying to find Natalee. The Holloway/Twitty crew were doing the police and detective work that the Aruba LE should have already had done. Like I said, from the outset something smelled to the high heavens, and it was not just inept and incompetent police work, some was so bad it was obvious it had to be intentional.
Carlos N’ Charlies 2005
The lies begin from the three amigos, Joran, Deepak and Satish … From the beginning of dealing with the three individuals who were last seen with Natalee, the lies were flowing. They stated that they dropped her off at her hotel, the Holiday Inn after having left Carlos n’ Charlies. How can the last three people ever to see Natalee not be considered suspects? especially when video surveillance tape showed that the three had never done any such thing. Wouldn’t that or shouldn’t that have been the first thing that Aruba LE should have checked? Instead, the family had to do the investigative work.
Holloway was last seen by friends getting into a vehicle and leaving the Carlos and Charlie’s nightclub in the capital of Oranjestad before dawn Monday.
Police questioned and released three Aruban men who said they dropped Holloway off early Monday at the Holiday Inn, where she had been staying about 3 miles from the capital of Oranjestad, said police assistant inspector Jules Sambo. The three were not suspects, he said.
MORE LIES … BLAME IT ON THE BLACK GUYS.
On June 5th, 2005 two black men were arrested in connection with the disappearance of Natalee Holloway. Why, because they were black. How racist is that? The former security guards, Mickey John, 30, and Abraham Jones, worked for the vacant Allegro hotel, two blocks from the Holiday Inn where Holloway stayed. How does anyone arrest two black men for a crime when the last people seen with a missing person walk free? Thus, we see from the outset the mindset in Aruba to blame this on anyone, two hapless black men, just because Aruba can. And they might have gotten away with it had Beth Holloway not come to their rescue and state, they were innocent.
The 2005 Arrest of Mickey John
A judge ruled Wednesday there was sufficient cause to keep holding two former hotel security guards in connection with the disappearance of an Alabama high school honors student.
The decision means authorities may hold Nick John, 30, and Abraham Jones, 28, for nearly four months while prosecutors investigate possible murder and kidnapping charges in the disappearance of 18-year-old Natalee Holloway, defense attorneys said. Neither man has been formally charged.
The two men were arrested Sunday on suspicion of first- and second-degree murder and capital kidnapping, the latter of which is invoked when a kidnapping victim is killed, according to court-appointed defense attorneys Noraina Pietersz and Chris Lejuez.
Later in the case, I had the opportunity to meet Mickey John in the States through the aid of FOM and talk to him as to what happened, his involvement, if any, and his opinions on the case. After talking to him for 5 minutes it became obvious he had nothing to do with Natalee’s disappearance and what just an easy patsy to blame it on. Was Micky John a choir boy, of course not, but he was hardly a murderer. John told me that he would never make any type of statement, especially in Aruba fro fear he would be arrested again for no reason. What had always bothered me to this day was how did the Aruba LE, prosecution and judiciary allow the last three people ever to be seen with Natalee Holloway go from persons of interest and prime suspects to witnesses? From 6/8/05, Attorney general spokeswoman Vivian Van Der Biezan also told a news conference that three “persons of interest” who were questioned and released last week were considered “witnesses,” not suspects. HUH? They dropped the dime on Micky John and Abraham Jones and the Aruba legal brain-trust fell for it hook, line and sinker. Of course the fact that Joran Van der Sloot’s father, Paulus, was a lawyer and a judge in waiting with his many connections had nothing to do with this attempted cover up and frame job. It would not be until June 13, 2005 that Abraham Jones and Mickey John was released from jail.
Abraham Jones Released!
This announcement was telling on two fronts, one, justice finally prevailed in that these two black security guards were finally let out of jail as they had no involvement in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway and the other would be something that would become a common occurrence through out the investigation in Aruba. The second interest fact was that Scared Monkeys broke the news of the release of the two security guards before the AP. Needless to say that prompted many news outlets to contact us and ask how that was possible. This became one of the events in the case that prompted the news outlets to track SM, not the other way around. That’s what happens when you have people on the ground and know others with connections that supplied info and data on a case that was so fluid.
On June 6th, volunteers in Aruba searched for missing Natalee Holloway. About 700 volunteers joined police, soldiers and FBI agents on Monday, combing scrubland and beaches on Aruba’s southeastern tip in an unprecedented search for an Alabama teenager who vanished a week ago on a trip to the Dutch Caribbean island. The Aruba government gave their civil servant employees the day off to help search for Natalee. However, only about 18% of government employees showed to search on what was the biggest story to hit Aruba since their independence from Holland. Also, who did not search … Joran Van der Sloot, Deepak Kalpoe or Satish Kalpoe.
It would not be until June 8, 2005 that the three boys, Joran Van der Sloot, Deepak Kalpoe and Satish Kalpoe would be arrested by Aruba authorities in connection with the disappearance of Natalee Holloway. However, Natalee went missing on May 30, all this time for these three to get their stories synched together and to be coached by Joran’s father, Paulus Van der Sloot. Eight days go by and the individuals who were last seen with a missing person were allowed to sanitize, erase, get rid of and clean up all loose ends with the help of their master white-washer, Paulus.
Aruban police arrested three more suspects in the case of the missing American honors student Thursday, the attorney general said.
Attorney General Caren Janssen said police arrested three men that police had previously questioned and released in the disappearance of 18-year-old Natalee Holloway.
Authorities have described the three as students – two Surinamese and a native of the Netherlands – who told police they dropped off Holloway at her hotel around 2 a.m. on May 30. Hotel employees, however, say that security cameras did not record her return.
