Aruba Dirty Police & Joe Tacopina

Interesting evening...

First on Catheleen Crier we hear Joe Tacopina's private eye tell us he's been on the case for 6 months and then disagree with Julia Renfro as to who picked up Joran. Julia says it's Satish, the PI says it's Deepak.

Then Tacopina in a panic tells us that Joran called Guido to apologize for his inconvenience and "getting him dragged into this mess." Now he wants Janssen fired. Something hit a nerve as now he, representing the Van der sloots agrees with Beth and Dave, months ago.

Then Guido's lawyer calls him a "victim of being friends with Joran Van der sloot." And oh by the way he's gay so a violent misognystic hate crime just ain't his thing.

We find out that there were 9 witnesses who came forward describing scratches on Guido and Tacopina says it's impossible since the police interviewed Guido early on and they would have seen it.

"They would have?" The same officers who didn't recognize or want to recognize Joran's lie for 10 days? It's now become, Aruba how much money do you have?

We also learn that Guido was interviewed in Michael Posner's office in the casino. And his house in Aruba is being searched a year later. Looking for dna maybe?

It's very obvious that millions of dollars in legal representation is not being spent to protect some kids.

This from the Wesport News in a profile of Tacopina: "but his defiance of convention means that his law practice must operate differently from most. Because trials are so time consuming, he accepts fewer cases and charges more money. Prospective clients sometimes suffer a kind of legal sticker shock."

"mobsters accused of murder and...his specialty, police officers accused of violent acts."

Stanley Zaandam, ex commisioner:

2 Days after 5/29, the body of Natalee may have already been found and the Police Commissioner looked the other way to do a favor for Paulus van der sloot (ex-Chief of Staff of the Prosecutor General J. Zwinkels) To exculpate the son of Paulus, the Police Commissioner and Fiscal Chief Prosecutor Karin Janssen made the false arrest of 2 security guards, Jones and John, called this a "tactical maneuver" and denied them their freedom for 10 days.

According to Zaandam, the nominations of among others, Commissioners Bernardina, Dompig, Hassel and Richardson, along with 34 high-rank 1st class inspectors, which are against the law and hierarchy of the KPA (police corps), have serious consequences for the quality and integrity of work in KPA. None of the high-ranked commissioners has the qualifications nor experience to conduct a judicial investigation.

He also claims this is how Commissioner van der straaten was appointed to this case. However, according to Zaandam, this should not be work for a commissioner.
