    Re: dog the bounty hunter in jail

    The only favour he did was for himself, to try and get the reward money offered. He didn't capture and remove Luster...he ILLEGALLY captured and removed luster, breaking international law. If he was doing this to throw mexico a favour, he would have contacted the local authorities, which he didn't.

    If the Mexican authorities (or any country) were to go behind the US's back, run into the country, and steal wanted criminals, do you think the US would take it lightly? Of course not...the FBI and CIA would be all over that. There are protocols for handing over criminals between countries, because if not, it undermines the power of the local police.

    This was NOT about bringing a criminal to justice, this was simply fueled by money, so yes, he should go to jail and serve his time. If you watch his show, he has no problem busting people who were simply caught with marijuana and didn't show up for trial.........and he broke international law and didn't show up for trial...

    Yes, it's quite easy to play by the book on this, stating that he broke international law and therefore should be punished accordingly. But the mexican police are not very trustworthy, they have proven that over time, so really Dog was doing people a favor by capturing Luster. And he busts people for not showing up to trial becuase it's his money that's on the line which also means the wellbeing of his family, that's a perfectly good reason to bust people for not showing up to trial.

    And Dog became a bounty hunter becuase he wanted to help his community and his fellow Hawaiin citizens by removing criminals from the street. So he's not this arrogant greedy bounty hunter you point him out to be.
    Death is your most loyal companion, for he will never fail you.

    Breakin international law is a good reason too.....


    If this guy didn't have a tv show, do you think anyone would really care if he was facing extradition? No.....they wouldn't. But since he has a tv show, he's somehow seen as untouchable and now we should all feel sorry for him.

    My opinion of him being greedy is only for capturing Luster, because that was solely a greedy act. He knows the law, and intentionally broke it in order to gain notoriety and money.

    Chapman himself was convicted of murder, and just because he's turned around doesn't make him righteous in anyway. There are plenty of ex-convicts who work in police task forces now helping to put away criminals because they know the tricks of the trade. But rather than join a police force, he becomes a bounty hunter....Hm....I wonder which one has a more handsome payout....police, or bounty hunter?

    Working at a bondshop does NOT take criminals off the street. He does not listen on police scanners to find criminals to take down. He simply captures people who have skipped bail, that's it. That is the ONLY thing he captures them for. Not because they might be drug dealers, or convicted felons.

    By the time a bondsman comes into play, the criminals have already been taken off of the street by the police force. Dog is only a middle man, supplying money for those criminals to be back on the street to wait for trial. He's not combating crime. He's running a money-making business, nothing more.

    Re: dog the bounty hunter in jail

    Dog the bounty hunter is NOT a police agent, nor does he have special police rights or anything like that. He is a regular person, who runs a "bonds" shop. If someone is arrested, they can pay money to remain free until trial. A 'bond' is a type of security payment, that allows the suspect to remain free while insuring that they appear at court. If the person doesn't appear, they forfeit the bond and a warrant is issued for their arrest. All Dog does is take the suspects into custody, and he recieves the 'bounty' for their arrest (i.e 'bounty hunter'). Pretty much all he is doing is using a "citizen's arrest" to obtain the culprit. Anyone can perform a citizen's arrest, though it is highly unrecommended because it can lead to legal problems.
    This is not entirley correct. It's not a citizens arrest. When someone signs a bond they give up certian constitutional rights in exchange for their freedom before the trail. The bail ammount is a measure of monitary risk. If someone can't afford their bail, then they can go to a bondsman who loans them the money but also vouches for there return to court (or probation if already on probation). To be a bondsman you must be licenced. If an average citizen tried to do what Dog did they would be in deep trouble.

    If you want to read all the spicifics of how bail bonds work in the legal system, see the link here.Howstuffworks "How Bounty Hunting Works"

    Now, with that said, he did break the law. The reason this is comming up is because the statutes of limitations is near it's end so Mexico must either press charges or drop the whole thing. The reason he did it was because Dog did want justice served (Luster sure wasn't going to get it in Mexico) and knew that he would get it in the United States.

    It will be intresting to see what the U.S. does here. Conventional wisdom is that if Dog goes to jail in Mexico he'll be killed while serving his time. It's very doubtful that the U.S. will sit back and let him go to jail when what he did was considered a heroic action by most americans. And being killed in jail doesn't hurt either.

    Re: dog the bounty hunter in jail

    I would just like to add that he did not break international law, he broke Mexican law since bounty hunting is illegal there. Why do you think so many criminals from the US run there when they know they've been nailed. Treaties between the US and Mexico give them the right to request his extradition, which they have now done, just under the statue of limitation for that particular crime in Mexico.

    Also there was no question of whether Mexican authorities would help him since the US justice system had already requested that they extradite Luster and they had basically told them to shove it. A pretty please had gotten a we'll think about it. If he hadn't gone down and gotten him Luster would have never seen jail time in the US.


    Irony? Oh, definately.

    Technically, yes he did break international law. Another country cannot arrest a fugitive criminal without the help and co-operation of the country the fugitive is in. The FBI cannot go to Mexico and catch criminals, nor can they come to Canada and pick up criminals unless they have been authorized by the government in power.

    By going into a country and illegally seizing a fugitive to hand over to American authorities, he is technically breaking international law.

    Re: dog the bounty hunter in jail

    From what I understand, Dog did actually have the help of a local mexican officer. No, not permission from the government, but help from a local officer. He thought he had covered his bases and it's turned out he has not. The crime he has been arrested for is a minor misdemeanor in Mexico. Why this is comming up now is beyond me (or most anyone for that matter).
