Bounty Hunters

For some reason, I have been intrigued by this news story where a bounty hunter named "dog" nabbed a convicted rapist in Mexico.

http://www.cnn.com/2003/LAW/06/20/bounty.hunters.ap/index.html

Even though the bounty hunter clearly has a hyped up ego, I thought it was good of him to catch this rapist.

I think its crazy that the Mexican authorities are trying to charge "Dog" for catching the rapist w/o police escort. I would understand if the crook being caught was a Mexican citizen, but this isn't the case.

Anybody else have thoughts on this one?

mmm well I think that if not for bounty hunters probably a lot of bad guys would get away hum 90% of all they go after don't you just wish the police were that good?? It was good that the guy caught that rapist but couldn't he have gotten in the country legally?? And even if the FBI were only hours behind why didn't they get him BEFORE he got out of the country!! Isn't that their job?? They shouldn't have let him get out of the STATE LET ALONE THE WHOLE dang COUNTRY!!

I heard on CNN that Luster was originally up on bail of $10 million, but his attorneys got the judge to go to $1 million because they said the original bail amount was excessive. Once the bail went down he skipped the country. I guess authorities weren't watching very closely.

I think the bounty hunter should be given some credit for catching a convicted felon that clearly had evaded federal agents.

It is odd that the bounty hunter (an american) could be charged for roughing up another american (Luster) in mexico. Seems that if two Mexican citizens roughed each other up in downtown D.C., the INS or state department would just dump them on mexican soil rather than charging/prosecuting them as american citizens..... Seems strange...

Crime fights Crime, Mexican Logic.....

Police corruption in Mexico is a lucrative business where every crime is covered with a price. I'm sure the Mexican Police, using their corrupted logic (criminals = money), saw an opportunity to double their profits by killing two birds with one stone. Luster is worth a million, and well, Dog is worth whatever he'll pay to get himself out of jail, which all boils down to a basic transfer of funds from the United States to the Mexican Government.

Not to worry, all of which is paid to the Mexican Government, (ie. the Million dollars in bonds and Dog's pocket book), will eventually flow back into the United States through the purchase of inexpensive American domestic merchandise. Thus helping the overall economy and the expansive Wal-Mart Market.

Thank you for shopping at Wal-Mart, Sam Walton Inc. thanks you dearly, Andrew Luster and Bounty Hunter Duane (Dog) Chapman..

By golly that explains exactly why wal-mart is a retail machine. They use bounty-hunter blood money to subsidize import costs, thereby artifically suppressing inventory costs. Dog must be Mr. Waltons grandson.

The ring is closed, I'm not sure why I didn't see it? confused?
