JORAN GIVING INTERVIEWS FOR MONEY FOR JAILHOUSE PROTECTION?
Journalist John van den Heuvel of De Telegraaf, the Dutch newspaper came into Casto Castro Prison in Peru to videotape Joran van der Sloot for an interview. I have no doubt that the newspaper paid him to do the interview.
The reason I say this is because greedy Joran has made it clear that he will not speak to reporters unless there is money on the table.
Joran definitely needs money to keep him alive in Castro Castro. He needs money to buy food from the outside.
In looking at the above photo of Joran he looks very well fed. He looks well kept with his manicured beard.
The money also allows him to buy anything else he wants, including the protection of the guards. Maybe that is why they allow him to do any interviews and roam around freely without any restraints.
THE REAL NEWS AS IT PERTAINS TO JORAN
While the de Telegraaf story tells of Joran’s confessing that he extorted money from Natalie Holloway’s family, that is old news. The FBI knew about it and we knew about it. But what IS new news and what is the REAL story of the day is what is going on in Castro Castro in relation to Joran.
It seems that Joran has worked both his charm as a sociopath and his money to receive the goodwill of the guards. You will see how well the guards are treating him in these screen shots taken from a video clip from the deTelegaaf interview taken before he entered the room to speak to the Dutch reporter.
When we first see the videoclip of Joran he is affectionately patted on the back by the guard as he arrives in the little courtyard on his way to the interview room.
Joran looks over at the back patting guard and gives him a little ” hello glad to see you ” grin.Joran bows his head down in order to maintain eye contact with the shorter guard.
We see a genuine and brighter and acknowledging smile as the guard removes his back patting hand from Joran.
Next we see one of the other guards showing Joran a piece of paper . Joran looks at it but is busy scratching his ear or the side of his head. Maybe he has ear mites or head lice. You see him reaching out to grab the paper..
Joran raises his eyebrows and insists that he needs that paper and abruptly grabs it out of the guards possession . The guard relents and the other guards who are essentially onlookers do nothing, even though they remain close by.
Joran even grabs the paper the guard is holding out of the guards hand. He looks cocky and entitled as he does this. The guards relent and don’t do a thing. They let him have the paper.
We then see Joran with the paper and he is walking in BACK of the guards.
Have you ever heard of a prisoner walking in back of a guard without handcuffs or restraints?
Have you ever heard of a prisoner grabbing papers out of a guards hand without being sent for disciplinary action?
Well you have heard it now. It happened in Castro Castro with Joran van der Sloot and you just saw it here in these photographs.
JORAN IS PROTECTED NOW AND FOREVER AS LONG AS THE MONEY KEEPS ROLLING IN
Joran is no doubt getting a lot of perks in jail . He has a lot of freedom and he has a lot of control over the guards as we just saw.
Seeing this makes me even more confident about my theory that he is being protected by his Dutch government who will most likely NEVER find him the Spanish to Dutch translator he needs for his trial to proceed. Even the Peruvians reported that they don’t have anyone who is an official translator from Spanish to Dutch.
They are keeping him safe in protective custody so that the can earn money doing interviews and write a book. They money he earns will go for a king like lifestyle at Castro Castro with guards and prisoners being on his hefty payroll.
PERUVIAN CULTURE OF MACHISMO CAN ACCEPT WHAT JORAN DID TO STEFANY AND NATALIE
While we are outraged by what Joran did to two innocent women, in his machismo prison environment in Peru they may not consider what he did to be so bad. They may not look at what he did as such a big deal.
In fact, the Latin American Herald Tribune http://laht.com/article.asp?ArticleId=357102&CategoryId=14095 did an article on machismo culture and violence against women and how Peruvian women have to deal with a justice system that often justifies the behavior of the aggressor.
While it is sickening to our culture, the article states the following:
What happens in Peru is that violence is not considered a serious problem and that in certain cases it is justified,” the head of women’s affairs in the National Ombudsman’s Office, attorney Teresa Hernandez, said.
Society in general finds violence justified when the woman does not fulfill the role she “should” perform: not looking after her spouse enough, not asking permission to go out, or spending too much time outside the home, she said.
“When women behave that way, it is considered inappropriate and deserving of punishment – that’s why our hypothesis is that since those who enforce the law (police, prosecutors, judges) have that criterion, complaints are not processed with the priority or the urgency they require,” Hernandez told Efe.
The article goes on to say :
“Very few judges order effective measures of protection,” Sarmiento said, adding “there is widespread disregard for the national and international regulations that are essential for resolving these cases,” such as the 1994 Belem Inter-American Convention to prevent, punish and eradicate violence against women.
Both victims and aggressors tend to be in the 18-35 age group, and two-thirds of victims are romantically involved with their attackers, according to the Ministry of Women.
Thirty-eight percent of the killers say they acted out of jealousy.
Some 34 percent of the victims were stabbed to death, 26 percent died of a beating and 15 percent were shot.
When the aggressors are caught and tried in court, they usually ask for the benefit of a sincere confession or say that the homicide was the result of violent emotion, which reduces their sentence to less than 15 years behind bars, Sarmiento said.
“Finally, an atmosphere of impunity is created that makes the situation worse, because another aggressor will thing nothing will happen to him” if he commits the same crime, the attorney said. EFE
JORAN’S BRIGHT FUTURE
So there you have it! Joran will remain protected in Castro Castro forever or until they find a translator. Maybe his Spanish will be so fluent in a few years that he wont need a translator.
Maybe when it comes time for him to go through the trial in Spanish, he will have earned millions from his interviews, photos , a book and film deal that he will have have a lot of money to pay off guards, prisoners, and who knows- even judges . This is NOT the USA where this could never happen. This is Peru and we have already seen what happens. Re- read the article in the Latin American Herald Tribune above.
They fact that Stefany Flores was an alleged lesbian may be all the more reason she will could be vilified in a culture of machismo. If Joran does go to trial and says that he killed Stefany because he was emotionally outraged because she lead him on sexually and toyed with him when she had no intention of having sex with him because she was a lesbian, he may get some sympathy from the court as indicated in the above article.
JORAN COULD BE OUT OF PRISON IN LESS THAN 15 YEARS
As sickening as it is, Joran could be out of Castro Castro Prison in less than 15 years well before he is 34. He may not get extradited to the US by Peru to serve his crime for extorting Natalie Holloway’s family because the good old Netherlands will most likely step in and save the day for Joran. They will prevent anything happening to their precious citizen just like we saw in Aruba. .
That means he could have the rest of his life to do interviews and make money and write more books. Who knows, by then he could even get his own reality show.
BUT KARMIC JUSTICE MAY PREVAIL
Even if Joran manages to skirt the law, there is something called Karmic Justice. It may not be in the form of justice as we know it but it may be justice from a higher power.
Because of the unsanitary conditions and contagious diseases Joran may very well catch one of them. He may succumb to tuberculosis, pneumonia, Hepatitis A B and C, HIV- AIDS, cholera, parasites, MSRA, or a host of other communicable diseases available to him in his environment.
I do hope that Joran gets his punishment one way or the other for ending the lives of two precious and beautiful women. I pray that he is never released so that he could torment and kill yet another woman.
