Getting away with murder…

What, Me Worry?

Last week, Joran Van Der Sloot was arrested In Chile for the murder of a young lady in Peru. However, it wasn’t the young lady that he was suspected of murdering, and admitted to a friend on videotape that he indeed did murder, Natalee Holloway. For those that don’t remember, way back a half decade ago in 2005, Van Der Sloot was accused of murdering Miss Holloway in Aruba. Almost 11 years to the day of the murder OJ Simpson was falsely accused of, we had another murder of an innocent white lady. This time it was in Aruba and the girl was a high school student for goodness sakes. The police accused him of the murder only because he was last seen with her on a beach, had given her drugs and had his buddies come and dump her body off of a boat. While that would have been tremendous evidence for most jurisdictions in the United States, simply wasn’t enough for the authorities in Aruba. Van Der Sloot was never held for more than a few days, and as soon as he was released he was back to his old tricks (sans murder, natch) picking up girls at hotel bars.

While most people would be happy getting away with murder, Van Der Sloot was unfulfilled.  Suffering from OJ-itis, he had to go and commit more crimes to feel alive. Unlike the Juice, however, he didnt have a Heisman to steal back. So he did all that he could do, resort to his time-honed tactics of slaughtering a woman. He got sloppy this time around though, as he allegedly beat her with a baseball bat and left her in the hotel room while he went to go take a day trip to Chile without even putting up the “Do Not Disturb” sign. As if the maid would clean up and dispose of a dead body!

The lesson to be learned in all of this is obviously that white women are devalued in today’s society. Paul Mooney said it best in his recent stand-up, “White women are not safe.” I agree with this sentiment wholeheartedly. To begin with, white women are more likely to walk off with some random stranger without regard for their own safety. More importantly,  white women get murdered with evidence pointing to an obvious culprit and the killers walk away scot-free, as if it was a traffic ticket.

Not only that, but think back to all of your favorite movies, more than likely a white woman was killed in it. It’s a shame. My favorite movie is Godfather Part 1. Michael’s Italian wife was killed in that movie when she was just an  innocent woman trying to learn to drive a car. On top of that, Michael slapped up his American white wife in Part 2, when she told him she had an abortion. And how can we forget Michael’s sister getting slapped up by her alcoholic husband. In fact, the only nice guy was Fredo, who refused to hit his woman even though she was acting up at that party, flirting with other men. What was the thanks Fredo received? He was called soft and murdered by his own brother. Kinda sad actually.

    Sounds more like Joran just defended himself from her confirmed attack.

    Is it time to start blaming the victim?

    With the death of STEPHANY FLORES RAMIREZ, perhaps it may be time to begin to hold the victims responsible for their own careless, seemingly idiotic choices, and mistakes. While it is important, imo, to not blame the victim of a crime, it is important to recognize how so many “victims” place themselves through a conscience choice into harm’s way that far too many fall prey, with sometimes devastating consequences to themselves.

    In review of the many aspects Ms. Ramirez chose, it may first begin with her recognizing who she was confronted with, a Joran Vander Sloot. Not only did she fail to exit that confrontation immediately even knowing who Joran is, she walked past the reception desk where she could have alerted staff to her perceived possible problem. Not only that, she accompanies Joran to his own room, and seemingly enters his room willingly with no apparent signs of any struggle on her part. Then, once behind a closed door, she is allegedly caught by Joran with her looking up Joran on the internet searching for information about the Natalee Holloway case.

    Now she’s dead and people wonder why? It’s called “proximity.” When people allow themselves to remain in a potentially dangerous situation when they fail to exercise better options than remaining in that potentially dangerous situation, it then, imo, becomes their own fault for anything negative occurring to them if they willingly chose to remain within that potentially dangerous environment; proximity. Perhaps best exemplified that if a house starts on fire and the person willingly chooses to remain inside, but then dies as a result, the blame is that of the victim, and not the fire itself.

    Now, with Joran’s alleged confession on this crime, the people that want and got a confession are typically the same people that have said in the past on blogs, television, and sites on the internet that Joran is a liar and you can’t believe a word he says. Now, these hypocrites are satisfied with the confession and fail to pursue the issue any further since it has an immediate-redemption quality to those not familiar enough with the higher-level studies of Psychology. Plus, the facts reveal that the girl attacked Joran, now it’s a potentially over-reaction to Joran defending himself. Is that a crime in the United States? Not if it occurred in any of the 50 states right now.

    Worse-case scenario for Joran right now appears to be a possible sentence well under ten years for a confession leading to a conviction, and he’ll be out super-soon given the legal/prison systems in Peru.

    Is that true Justice for Stephany? I think not!

  2. Certainly not true justice.
