I can definately see her taking over Rita Cosby's show so that she can repair the damage to her throat
(Something is wrong with Rita)

She might replace the current host (name escapes me) on America's Most Wanted. John something.....

Greta is also joining the bandwagon on this one.

Its ratings! ratings! I'm watching Greta's debate right now, hashing and re-hashing to fill up time.
What a sorry life i have.

It's about time. The Aruban authorities have been playing cat and mouse with the Holloway family for too long and it's time for the American people to put pressure on the Aruban people to pressure the authorities to do their jobs.

Well let's boycott every city in the US where kids turn up missing every day then.

The Governor of Alabama is a trick. The only reason this is still news is because the kid was 18, blonde and loaded with cash. If she was a poor Mexican border jumper or from the Bronx, no one would care. Shes dead, boo hoo.

What the hell do you expect to accomplish by a boycott of the place where she disappeared, give me a #ing break!

They did do their job Grady, as far as I can tell.

Or are you of the opinion that the cattle prod and the backroom are standard operating procedure for any police department?

Have you had time to assimilate the information provided by Bandit on this thread, or did you not read the replies?

Aruban police matters are just that. Mind your own business, and fix the problems in your own backyard.

The insurance angle seems plausible to me, as does the scenario in which the girl gets kidnapped by human trafickers.

In any case, your gung ho attitude is a detriment to your ability to consider others and treat them fairly. You don't care if it hurts Aruba, or hurts those boys (assuming they're innocent). You just want some visual progress towards PUNISHMENT.


I don't give a damn about the silly girl, or her silly mother. I don't care about the Dutch kid with the shifty eyes. I didn't care before, I don't care now. My only connection to this story is my perpetual desire to see it go away. Help it find a nice tar pit somewhere to lie down in. Please.

Whether or not the girl is dead, the coverage surrounding this non-event certainly ought to be by now.

But it's not. And that, to me, screams DISTRACTION! LOOK! LOOK! NOTHING'S HAPPENING OVER HERE! LOOK!

The American peop;e should mind their own business and pressure their own government to fix their own crap. Read what I've said, Grady. Our authorities were not playing games. Not one bit. Stop believe Foxnews.

Boycott my $%#^&, a full naval blockade to stop the drug trade, the real source of Aruba funding...............No Tourista, No Drugs, Aruba is just a rock in the it should be............

The real source of Aruba funding...

Might I remind you that untill 1986 the main source of funding was the oil refrinery, and after that, the tourism industry???

Of course there is drug trafficking, we're just north of Colombia & Venezuela, so we're in a unfortunate position. But it's not where Aruba gets it's funding from as you're trying to claim there. And the tourists coming here for drugs are definately a vast minority.

Furthermore it's not just a rock like you say it is. It's my home and home to almost 100000 people.

The next person to make such an idiotic statement or anything similar about Aruba is bound to get a violent retaliation from me. Not Bandit the Supermod, but Bandit the proud Arubian.

If it weren't for Aruba I highly doubt the allies would've won world war II. We had the largest oil refinery on the planet at that time, and were refining 25 percent of the oil and fuel that the allies were using.

We were also one of the first places (if not The first place) the Nazi's attacked in their U-Boats. The old folks still recall massive explosions in the harbor of my hometown San Nicolas.

So you owe us bigtime!! In other words, if it weren't for Aruba, Hitler would've probably Pnwed you!!!

Blockade the States! That is where the big drug DEMAND is! there'd be no need for a supply were it not for the demand.

A couple teenage girls were found dead and in the trunk of one of the girls' car, right here in my little town. The killer has never been indentified, as far as I know. I heard that there is a political connection, complete with a sinister cover-up. didn't hit Fox News, though. Greta doesn't know the names of these dead girls. I don't blame Brth Halloway for being distraught and wanting answers, but these two girls who died a handful of years, right here in Southeast Alabama weren't on a poorly chaperoned trip out of country; they were 20 miles from there homes. Should we boycott my hometown? What good would it do?

As I said, the stupid governor is going to be replaced.

I'm so sick of this story,

Agreed. Let's boycott Alabama.

Oh RANT ... you KNOW that I'm with ya' on that one!
BOYCOTT Alabama! Absolutely!

I know everyone is sick of this story. We all know the poor girl
is dead and that she was probably murdered by one of those

However, just because we are sick of it doesn't mean that we
drop it. A crime probably happened. If this is just dropped then
probably someone who killed will have gotten away with it and
will do it again (now that he knows it's easy to do).

Can't drop this. No matter how much we are tired of it.

Now on to this - BOYCOTT ALABAMA!!
RANT - you should head up the boycott Alabama team.
I'm all for it.

FIY the authorities here have never dropped the case, they're still working on it. And I still have reason to believe that no crime happened and that she's alive.

Just for the record here, when I said I agree with Dickard Cheney's torture policy, I was saying that in jest. I'm not a fan of Dickard and I'm not really a fan of torture. The Van der Slime just bring out the worst in me. I'm a big believer in body language telling the story, and both their body languages scream guilt, or at the least complicity. I personally would like to be the one to cattle prod their jewels. That's what I told Santa I wanted for Christmas when I was sitting on his lap at the mall.

Well then bring your butt here and tell the authorities about your subjective feelings of the v/d Sloot family...

The Twitty family's Aruban attorney reports that her tires have been slashed twice and her life has been threatened. She states that she is not yet concerned.

posted on Nov, 9 2005 @ 10:44 PM
Where is the report?? I haven't seen that on the news here.

posted on Nov, 9 2005 @ 11:46 PM
She was on "On the Record" tonight. She said that she had not made a police report, as yet.

I think Greta Van Susteren pretty well sums up how I feel about this issue:

I have struggled with what I think is right in terms of a boycott. The one thing that continues to bother me is that the chief prosecutor, per Beth Holloway Twitty, will not meet with Beth. If she did meet with Beth, or talk to her regularly, Beth and the chief prosecutor would be on the same page and working together. If they were working together there would be no call for a boycott. I assign the blame for not talking to the prosecutor. This is part of the prosecutor's job. If you ignore the family, all hell will break loose... and now it has.

The chief prosecutor could change this: Just pick up the phone — do it daily — and it will take less than five minutes. I don't know if the prosecutor is complaining that she is busy — how many possible murder cases could they have in Aruba? This call for boycott could easily be ended — the chief prosecutor has total power to do it. Hence if the people of Aruba are being penalized, they should look to the chief prosecutor to fix it.

More lies and spin from Foxnews. That newschannel is as reliable as Pravda.

She did not make a police report yet. But it's better to go on Foxnews right away instead of going to the police!!! Which idiot does that???

They always try to contact the Holloways and Twitty's. And I still don't see anytinhg about tireslashing and death threats. What did happen though, was a protest last week against the boycot the mother is calling for. Ironically she's saying she never called for a boycot, she's never said the word boycot, but she doesn't want anybody to go to Aruba. Figures...

Btw.. I've heard on the local news that the U.S. government is distancing itself from Gov Bob and his statements. And it's not his business to say something like that.

Here is a link:

Washington does not back Aruba boycott

This was just on Greta, looks like the Philadelphia city council may vote to support the boycott.

Here's a link:

(AP) PHILADELPHIA Two Philadelphia city councilmen are proposing a boycott of Aruba because of concerns over how that nation has handled the case of a missing Alabama teenager.

Councilmen Juan Ramos and Jack Kelly plan to introduce the bill Thursday, urging Philadelphians to boycott the Caribbean nation. Earlier this week, Alabama Governor Bob Riley called for a nationwide boycott.

posted on Nov, 10 2005 @ 09:30 PM
And the Arubian government is sending the lead investigator to speak to a congressman in the U.S. about the case.

You know, all they need is to make public the security camera footage of Beth Twitty drinking and having a grand time a bars and casino's here on Aruba. I don't know why they haven't done that yet.

Today in the local newspaper there's an article from a human rights lawyer and journalist here on Aruba directed to Gov Bob Riley to show him how ridiculous and hypocritical a boycott against us is.

Unfortunately I can't find it on the newspapers website though.
