      The only right here that should be violated is his right to live.

      Only two come in the game, and he used them both up on Natalee.

      I couldn't agree more with Sean. This guy knows what happened to Natalee Holloway and her parents have had to live with this man walking around free. Now everything is pointing to him murdering this other young lady. (Another life cut short). How many chances are we going to give this guy? How many young girls is he going to have to kill before we consider the victims rights? He needs to remain behind bars. Right where he is!

    This guy is a self-confessed liar. Ergo, "I'm lying".

    If the facts are on your side, argue the facts. If the facts don't support you, ARGUE PROCEDURE.

    VanDerSloot is NOT ARGUING THE FACTS. Glad the video leaves no doubt as to who the killer is! Wish he could be tried in Utah or Taxas!

      Really, send him to us...I live in Houston, TX...We have a little place up north in Huntsville...
      I think he'll get what he deserves anway, someday...but it's sickening to see this BS-he learned well from his Daddy. Whom is likely rolling over in his grave now. Just knowing how SICK and TWISTED his son was, and the thought that it couldn't be 'over' due to the obvious sociopathic tendencies...and it wasn't was it? God Bless the Holloway and Flores families. I pray for their comfort, safey, sanity...and peace....I'm so, so sorry to hear of this-although not surprised a bit. His Mommy has even (supposedly) tunred her back on him. I hope for her sake (Steffany-sic)he beroke her neck bf beating one of her eyes out...

    In that peruvian jail, they are going to violate his right, his left and a lot more than that... he is where he deserves to be. He'll pay for what he's done.

      They are keeping him in prison there, but with sissy boys like himself. He would never make it one day in a true prison system.

    Maybe his sentence should be decided by worldwide televoting then?

    Maybe we should use televoting on everyone accused of a crime?

    Maybe we should skip televoting and just put all foreigners to death?

    Let's keep our heads cool when thinking.

      Hey honey.. there is a big button on the left side of your keyboard, It says caps lock... TURN IT OFF! It makes you look stupid when you type with caps lock on and still hit shift so you get lower case letters in place of upper case..

    This SOB has manipulated the legal system from the very beginning, thanks to his father the judge. He deserves to rot in a Peruvian prison cell. He talks about "rights", he lost his rights the second he took the life of an innocent person, & now a second innocent has fallen victim to him! I hope & pray Peru doesn't let him leave their country & he gets some of what he deserves from the other inmates! Better yet, throw his naked butt into a fishing net & dangle it over a ship for the sharks to have a feast. RIP Natalee & Stephany

    Please interview and interogate Kalpoe brothers. They know more than their previous admission about Natalie's fate.
    My sympathies go to both girls' families

    He is nothing more than a slug. He deserves to rot away in Peru. He won't last long in their jail. I hope the rest of the prisoners use him as their girlfriend the rest of his worthless life. Murdering pig!

      he needs to have the same thing done to him as he did to Natalie and Stephany. I also think they need to track all the places he has been in the past years and see if and how many other young girls are missing.
      One thing that does concern me : he had no marks on him , yet Stephany had skin under her nails. What if it isnt his ??? He is surely guilty. He admitted to killing her and did a Scott Peterson , dying hair etc . But what then ??? will they let him off if his skin isnt under her nails ? If so i hope he walks out of jail and bam right between the eyes !!!!!!!!!!!
