I'm not convinced on the whole lawyer thing. Dog is a bond enforcement officer, he understands how bail works, and he should have a concept of how TV works. I mean basically the lawyer said "it's a misdemeanor, you'll fly under the radar" somewhere in the back od Dog's brain he should have thought "flying under the radar isn't a good plan, anyway I'm trying to become a TV star and if that works I will definitely not be under any radar".

I'm glad Luster is off the street, I just wish Dog had been a bit more anonymous about the whole thing.

I think I might have read a while back that Dog didn't pay his Mexican lawyer all that was owed him, so his lawyer eventually stopped protecting him. Might there be anything to that?

Any idea why Dog didn't get to collect? Was it to avoid problems with the Mexican authorities?

Don't know. But if his lawyer really did advice him to skip bail the guy doesn't deserve any money.

He didn't collect because he violated Mexican laws and was not acting on any legal authority.

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

Only because the Fed DA wants them to swear they were roughed up by a Border Patrol, give them immunity for their crime,and invite them to spend the night in the Lincoln bedroom.

Thanks for the feedback. I guess the California bail law renegs on prize offerings IF laws are broken to win them, then?

Godspeed to Dog(Duane), Leland and Tim, and many prayers for Beth, their kids and the rest of their family. This is a terrifying thing for any family member to go through. :*(

That having been said, you can't go to another country, break its laws and expect to get off scot free.
___________________________________________________________
Unless you are entering the U.S. illegally.

Personally, I favor changing that. In order to be consistent, I have to therefore approve of prosecuting Dog to the full extent of the law.

I don't see why the US should give him over to Mexico

Because he committed a crime in Mexico and there's an entradition treaty?

Would that be a good reason?

After the story broke, I tried watching his show, I could only stomach about fifteen minutes of it. He and his wife look like trailer trash, but just the same, I really don't want to see Mexico win this one.

If only we had devoted half the resources spent on regime change in Iraq instead to regime change in Mexico...sigh.

Do you deny that Dog entered a sovereign nation, a nation with which we have an extradition treaty, and broke that nation's laws?

Is that how "familiar" you are with "the whole thing"?

Wow.

Which part are you denying - the existence of an extradition treaty? That Dog went to Mexico at all, or that he practiced his trade while in Mexico?

Where exactly do you think Dog apprehended Luster? Puerto Vallarta, California?

I myself favor prosecuting those lawbreakers, too.

I think all criminals should be prosecuted, in the jurisdictions in which they break the laws. It is not intellectually consistent to exempt some, just because they have a television show.

You keep saying that, but never actually offer up any information.

Time to put up. What really happened, in your opinion?

Did Dog go to Mexico? Did he apprehend Luster there? Because if the answer to those two questions is "Yes," then Dog is a criminal.

If he wore an Armani suit, he'd still be a criminal who committed a kidnapping in Mexico. I'm not defending Luster, he should be executed, but "Dog" is also guilty of a crime. Also, plenty of others seem to think Chapman is a clown...hello?

There is no recognized "sovereign" government of Mexico. The US has treaties with such an entity but it does not exist. Who is the true government of Mexico? The cartels, The police/paramilitary forces, or the guy allegedly voted in has President because I have no idea?
Chapman bribed "officials" from the local police and so called "government" and was told they would look the other way when he captured this guy. Apparently there are no laws against such things in Mexico like their is here, but the Mexicans reneged on the deal leaving Dog S.O.L.
This whole situation is bizarre that I think the only any rational agency would hand Dog over to the Mexicans would be if there were some sort of under handed dealings between the two. There is no sanity in this. There is no due process in Mexico and it should be against better judgment to extradite someone back to such a system under fishy circumstances.

Actually the situation is pretty straight forward. Bounty hunting is illegal in Mexico, Dog got arrested for kidnapping as a result of his successful bounty capture of Lester, Dog got out on bail, Dog left Mexico, Dog didn't go back to Mexico, Dog missed his court case, and now the bounty hunter is also a bail jumper. We've sent bounty hunters to Mexico to face the same charge for the same reason before, also to Canada. Whether or not Dog bribed some Mexican cops to look the other way, and whether or not they reneged is immaterial. There's a DVD available from Discovery.com (if you can figure out which episode it is) that shows Dog committing this crime, and of course the fact that he got a TV show in part because of this bounty can't be making Mexico happy.

The moral of the story is simple, don't chase bounties to Mexico, and if you feel you must chase your bounties to Mexico don't making a freaking TV show out of it.

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

And what do you think the poor, poor, down-and-outers are doing while on the run from American justice? Getting masters degrees? Volunteer work? Answer: NO!

They're the ones that are doing the car-jacking, rock-selling and stealing of anything that isn't nailed down or guarded with a large caliber weapon, thats what.

Setting aside the fact that you just contradicted yourself (if we have treaties, then it *is* "recognized"), I find the argument that "the corrupt officials Dog bribed should have stayed bought" unconvincing.

Many illegal immigrants come to our country because they know that the system will wink at them: does it makes them any less criminals?
