I really don't care.

He will rot in that third world prison and his child will hate him.

This is not news worthy.

Has Doctor-Senator Bill Frist diagnosed Miss Figueroa as having brain damage or at least mental problems from 3000 miles away ?? If so he is probably correct .. for once.

Read an article a couple of years back about women that seek out prison inmates as partners. Some of it was the weird stuff you'd expect, but some of it was very surprising. For example, some women like a relationship where she has vastly more control. Even without breaking prison rules, she can often provide him some things, and THAT is control. He is locked in a cage when she is not with him, control, etc, etc.

But what happens when he gets out can be interesting (if he gets out. Some women especially go for lifers).

My favorite is the Menendez brothers. They shot their parents to death with a shotgun.

"Both Erik and Lyle have married while in prison -- Lyle, twice. The older brother married longtime pen pal and former model Anna Eriksson in 1997, a marriage that lasted about a year. In 2003, he married Rebecca Sneed, a magazine editor.

Erik in 1999 married Tammi Saccoman in a Folsom State Prison waiting room. Saccoman told people the relationship is difficult because, under California law, conjugal visits are banned. Also, she said many of her friends and family were thunderstruck by her decision."

He won't be extradited. Alabama has the death penalty and countries without it generally won't extradite to a country that does.

They might. No death penalty for extortion and that's all they have.

Good point

Not saying Vander Sloot isn't a douchebag, but they don't have anything on him in the Holloway thing.

It was a little creepy being there where all that went down... Aruba generally a pretty laid back place. I can't imagine the circus that was going on there for a while.

How do you know that red?

Know what? That he's a douchebag? Just my opinion.

That they don't have anything on him? Because no one could charge him with anything. Even under Dutch law. After nearly ten years?

What justice he is in their prison rather than one of ours, where we would pay for his college education.

Actually, sometimes countries without a death penalty WILL extradite, and QUICKLY, even in the face of serious concerns and domestic opposition.

I for the names, but a couple decades ago give or take a bit, a psycho murder/rape/torture scumbag had escaped to Canada, and Canada was objecting to extradition over the absolutely certainty that the scumbag would face the death penalty. While this was going on, they had the clearly guilty scumbag lockup while the courts argued.

Then the U.S. did something deliciously appropriate.

The U.S. made another request for extradition, but also told the Canadians it would the LAST request, and if it was denied the U.S. would WITHDRAW the extradition request.

As the murderous scumbag had not been convicted, and had done nothing in Canada, by Canadian law they would have been forced to release him on THEIR streets.

He was in the U.S. in under 48 hours.

Name was 'Charles Ng'.

Turns out I was partly wrong, he had done stuff in Canada, but would have eventually been released by Canadian law.

While a few minutes of Internet search have found a lot details, including Canadian concern about Ng eventually being free on THEIR streets, can't find all it, but absolutely remember reading it years ago. I SO remember the speed of the extradition, Canadian supreme court and all, once the Canadian bluff was called 'You like him? Keep him'.

"Turns out I was partly wrong, he had done stuff in Canada..."

Yeah, like shooting a security guard after being caught shoplifting?

The US should have not let him escape from prison in the first place... would have been less hassle.

Interesting... the US actually let him out of prison twice. When he was in the Marines in 1982 he was sentenced to 14 years in military prison foir stealing weapons and they let him out in one. Then later he was in prison for killing a bunch of people and he escaped.

Apparently he was a prepper nutjob.
