Guerilla Gorilla:
Screw habeas corpus!

[He's back. Much to my chagrin, Guerilla Gorilla insists that I am not taking a firm enough stand on matters of great import, and has therefore asked for another shot at the Toner Mishap audience. Apologies in advance.]

There's no body, so there's no case, right? Screw that -- Guerilla Gorilla knows that some people are just guilty, and we don't need any fancy legal Latin putting these scum back on the street.

Aruba judge-in-training (whatever the hell that means) Paul van der Sloot told his 17-year-old son and two other suspects in the disappearance of 18-year-old Natalee Holloway that "when there is no body you don't have a case," Aruba's attorney general said Wednesday. This, the day after Holloway disappeared. Attorney General Caren Janssen also said that she could prosecute a case in the disappearance even if the Alabama teenager's body is not found.

Covering my simian ass, here's an unrelated statement: when a guy tells his son to hide the dead body so he doesn't end up in jail, we shouldn't just put the son in jail -- throw him in with his old man and close the case.
