NIGHTMARE IN PARADISE: The Disappearance of Natalee Hollowell
Many of you like me are sickened by this story. A pack of happy grads and their 'chaparones' fly to paradise from lil' ole Alabama for some fun in the sun for graduating.I am not in favor of young people going out of our country unsupervised.Ok so 3 kids for every chaparone....hmmmm. Natalee was in a bar about 1 am and who was on that watch? No one. Sleeping like babies (or passed out) while the kidz run the island.Stories are they are intelligent careful kids.Unfortunatly predators are smarter or lets say SICKER and SLICKER. I bet the farm a HUGE percentage of those kids were able to get the parents confidence to go to Aruba with the line " But CHAPARONES will be watching us 24/7 !!! (insert whining) ". Poor Natalee still hasnt been found.Being a small island the size of DC should be easy, right! WRONG! The first thing they did wrong was let the first 3 'suspects' go. They admitted to taking her to a beach lighthouse.(stomach twisting) One of these fine island locals is a JUDGES SON! Who as of yesterday was sent off the island to get away.hmmm (Special priveldge?yup!) The three guys were upper level residents.Not as the 2 arrested,living in the poor area, parents poor worker bees. I freaked when the first 3 were released.They had lots of info to help find Natalee.Yet,with their power and money, they were set free.Call me Miss Conspiracy Theory but heres my take. Being the first 3 put themselves at scene of 'crime' they knew there was SOME sort of evidence that would ID hem at some point, so they fessed to BEING THERE at lighthouse with Natalee. After they were done doing whatever,they turn to he 2 loser stooges to either clean up or finish up.They could have even dropped her off to them at the Hotel they knew so well. One of the guards was identified as someone who tried to give drugs to another American tourist. Being from South Florida I have done a lot of island hopping down there,know many islanders and kidz, more likely than not the ones in power are CORRUPT.They get the perks, their kids get the perks and priveledges also. Some mrdres rapes and more crime is covered up to protect these golden chidren.That brings me back to The Judges son, one of the first 3 suspects. Its highly possible Daddy called in a marker to clean the blood off his kids hands (literaly and figuratively) . And it gives this tourism dollar fueled area a black eye! The pace is 'dial up" to say the least.Poor Natalee is probably at the bottom of a body of water along the island.All while her parents and hundreds search every inch of land.And all one of these bastards could do is admit the crime and return this girl, or her (gulp) body to her heart torn parents/relatves/friends. The end wont be pretty in this, too much time passed, too much drama w/ suspects,too much power.My heart bleeds for all involved.And I pray the parents can forgive themselves for letting their precious baby girl, party on so far away and out of America.They just wanted to make her happy,in a full and happy and priveledged life which she had in Bama. Lets hope they take back in the first 3 suspects.The cops lean on 'the weak one' and get the info everyone is desperately waiting for. On a personal note, my siter and I argued a week before Natalees disappearance.My sister was in process of allowing her 16 year old daughter, my beloved niece NATALIE,to go to the Bahamas with some goofy chaparones.Me being, well ME, told her how unsafe and crazy it was to send tis beautiful,curvy hottie off to who knows what! She called me paranoid and stuck her head back in sand.She called me back days after Natalee Hollowell vanished, she was cryng hystericaly and thanking me for giving her my worldy point of view, no matter how Paranoid it seemed.Shivers ran down my spine! I just dont want to be the aunt on FOX begging for my nieces release like the Hollowells aunt. If you love your kids you have to put the hammer down in this insane day and age.Them having fun frollicking in the sun and sand and bozzing till the cows come home can and SHOULD wait till the are older,wiser and with a someone who will keep an eagle eye on them as you would.So If you cant go, them hell, neither do they! Parenting doesnt stop at 18 or 28 for that matter.All the grief you will suffer waiting for resue to find the body dont even measure up to the 'awesome experience' you kid will have with their friends,when things go sideways. Another sick sad story of a missing or murdered woman/female.I hope for the best, but my gut has a mind of its own.Dont let the travel agents pics give you a false sense of security,EVIL lurks EVERYWHERE!And if EVIL has a JUDGE for a Daddy,look out.
