A modest van Sloot Proposal

Homicidal party-boy Joren van der Sloot apparently decided he has had enough of the Peruvian civil justice system. After being pelted with rotten tomatoes and vegetables by the locals on his way to court, the pampered, Obama-eared thug announced through his local attorney that he is finally ready to reveal details that would lead investigators to the body of Natalee Holloway.

This follows the flock of geese-chases conducted by the Slootster for the press, the Aruban police and most recently, the FBI. Despite the school of red herrings the Dutch predator has released previously, we are now supposed to believe that Joren will actually come clean, but only to Aruban authorities.

This is clearly an attempt to escape the daunting conditions the bully-boy of teen-age girls is faced with in Peru’s prison system:

(His) Peruvian attorney Sandro Monteblanco …(calls) the prison "Dante's Inferno." "You hear people talk about Turkish prisons and what not, because they haven't been to a Peruvian prison," he said.
Since van der Sloot has already extorted 25 large from the Holloways in a deal to reveal the whereabouts of Natalee’s body while stringing the FBI along for the ride, I have a modest proposal for the Peruvian authorities:
Considering that the over-sized thug who apparently felt no compunction at battering two young woman to death is now cowering in the face of more formidable opposition, and that he suggests that he does have information that would finally provide some peace-of-mind to the family he has effectively tortured for years, why not see how a little water-boarding works on the former Mr. Tough Guy?
After about 60 seconds, we will finally be able to mark this one: case closed.
