It is my understanding that Mexico never extradites criminals to the US for trial. If true, I don't know why we extradite American citizens to Mexico with its known corruption.

Not true at all.

They don't extradite if someone faces the death penalty.

They just extradited a cop-killer here when we agreed to give him life in prison.

"It is my understanding that Mexico never extradites criminals to the US for trial."

It's my understanding that's only true for criminals who commit death penalty eligable crimes. Thus, kill a cop, make it to Mexico and you're home free. But, bring a rapist to justice and the US will extradite you to be accidently killed "falling down the stairs" in some hellhole Mexican prison.

This is an unjust outcome: Chapman caught a real sleezeball taking refuge in Mexico. Now he's to be *extradited* for doing this?

No matter how you slice it, this decision is *poked*.

Must be something substantial, if Bush ordered Chapman to Mexico in order to commit kidnapping (according to Mexican law).

DOG got a really bad guy in Mexico.

But on his TV show all I see is bond forfitures for small time down-on-their-luck drug & alcohol addicts.

I wouldn't know. I've never watched the show, so I don't have an emotional investment in him.

That having been said, you can't go to another country, break its laws and expect to get off scot free. We would are outraged when Mexico fails to hand over their criminals to us, we can hardly refuse to do it ourselves.

Legally, we should extradite him. He committed a crime under Mexican law.

Having said that, I don't know why Mexico is intent on prosecuting him. Imagine the situation being reversed, where a Mexican bounty hunter nabs a Mexican citizen in this country who is wanted for a crime in Mexico.

I think we'd send a thank you note.

Mexico is probably mad because that particular bounty was a key to turning Dog into a TV personality. From where they sit he got famous for breaking their laws, which really wouldn't make anybody happy.

And since Mexico doesn't believe in bounty hunting the reverse would never happen.

Felipe Calderon, Osiel Cardenas, Ismael Higuera, Gilberto Higuera, Hector Palma Salazar and Jorge Arroyo-Garcia wish they could agree with you.

But, unfortunately for them, the Mexican government extradited them to the US to face trial.

Mexico has extradited 77 criminals to the US in the past 15 months.

Chapman embarrassed Mexican and American authorities. That seems to be his most serious crime. Also, whoever Luster was paying off down there lost a large sum of money when he was returned to the USA.

I agree. I do not have a bunch of money, but I'll be damned if I would get extradited to that Turd World hell hole because I brought a rapist to justice.

Man, I'd go hide in the hills and eat beetles before I'd go across that border. The conditions would be better and the food would be a great improvement over a mexican prison.

How about we make them a deal - they take back every last one of the illegal invaders who are here in the US from their own country and we'll hand over Dog after the last one is gone from our country.

I think the authorities on both sides have much more to be embarrassed about than a criminal being kidnapped and turned over to authorities by a private individual.

However, bounty hunters are not above the law, and if they break them, they have to face the consequences like anyone else. The fact that they're chasing supposed bad guys doesn't give them any special privileges.

Dog's mistake was in failing to bribe the proper authorities before making the grab. On the other hand, he can probably get out of jail time in Mexico if he makes the bribes now. It will just cost him more.

With all the serious kidnapping issues going on in Mexico, the Mexican Prosecutors may be under enormous pressure, and can't be seen as playing favorites.

Just a theory...

I find it the height of folly to enable a court officer (a bounty hunter returning a fugitive) a wide range of latitude for picking up a fugitive in the US, but then deny that bounty hunter the same protections when it comes to other countries.

Dead man walking.

Isn't our submission to foreign "justice" just wonderful?

But then again, America has imported mexico's criminals, so why not their system of law?

Condolences to the survivors of Mr. Chapman.

This story has me wondering...I have heard so many different things about this case. Why don't we just tell Mexico no? A plain & simple no we will not give him over. They don't give us every person we ask them for. This has gotten to be so stupid. Sometimes I wonder if half of it isn't for publicity. I don't see why the US should give him over to Mexico and I hope they don't.

Bounty hunters, in most states, aren't court officers, they're bondsmen employees. How can we dictate to other countries how to handle their laws? Very few countries have legalized bounty hunting, as far as their concerned it's kidnapping. And remember bounty hunting laws vary drastically from state to state, a bounty hunter licensed in one state (assuming that state has a licensing procedure) might not be allowed to operate in a different state (again depending on that stat's laws). Suddenly declaring they can operate internationally with complete disregard to local laws when they can't even operate throughout the US that way would never stand.

That having been said, you can't go to another country, break its laws and expect to get off scot free.

Unless you come to America, without permission and begin working under the table without paying taxes, driving without a license or insurance and know how to pick fruit really well and only speak spanish.

Then you're welcomed, given college tuition breaks, free healthcare and freedom from paying income taxes.

Screw Mexico, they encourage and aid in the breaking of American laws on a daily basis.
