"Am I the only person who thinks "Dog" is a clown?"

I have a lot of inhospitable things to say about Dog and his "crew", and I won't say them, except to say that the list begins with "Mullets".

"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."

I'm only vaguely familiar with the situation and I am by no means a legal mind, but didn't he cuff some rapist or really horrible person.

I agree laws are laws, but it seems to me that justice should serve the law, not the other way around. We have all these plea bargains and nonsense that go on in this country, which seems to benefit criminals. Such legal gyrations they serves the law, nor do they serve justice.

Attorneys talk, deals are made, cash changes hands, very bad people walk. Why can't we work this situation to the benefit of someone who otherwise seems to be doing the right thing??

If we return Andrew Luster to Mexico and Mr. Chapman apologizes and promises to never do it again, will the Mexicans forgive him? If they are so unhappy about having a violent sex offender taken off their streets, then we should respect their customs and allow Andrew Luster to return and live freely among those who find his unique social skills acceptable. I'm sure the women and young girls in Mexico wouldn't mind. PUL-EEZE! Give me a break! This is outrageous, no matter how outrageous Mr. Chapman is. You'd think they'd give him a medal, but nope. Don't think that's going to happen.

"I thought there was a story a few months ago that this circus was all over?"

I think those were stays from the Mexican Court, pending payment of bribes. Obviously the Mexican corrupt, I mean court feels it can bleed Chapman of more money.

'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 think this is the real reason. Luster is the criminal!

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.

They never cooperate with our courts. That's why Dog went to Mexico and extracted the guy he's charged with kidnapping.

I think he and his whole posse are clowns and/or freaks. But this is still one more case of our country screwing it's own citizens to pacify the official jackals of a corrupt to the core foreign government.

Clown or not, he shouldn't be extradited. In Mexico he caught Andrew Luster, who had administered GHB to women, and raped them. The Mexican authorities didn't catch HIM and extradite him to the US. Instead, they are going after the man that did their job for them.

Dog and Beth claim they were never paid for that catch.

I couldn't sleep the other night, and watched two episodes of his show. He and Beth were finally getting married. The morning of the wedding they got a call that Dog's adult daughter had died in a car accident. My heart goes out to him.

I'm confused. Isn't that exactly what all those illegals expect when they come here? Oh! It's only when Americans do it that it is not allowed! I get it now.

Not aimed at you highball. I'm just disgusted with our system of handling illegals and the double standard involved.

Bingo

According to Dog, he was aware that bounty hunting is against the law in Mexico and informed and used a Mexican authority as an intermediary.

IIRC there was a criminal trade involved with this.

Bingo! Mexico is keeping cop-killers. They keep thousands of killers. Chapman captured a killer in Mexico. That's his crime, capturing a fugitive, when obviously, fugitives CAN'T be captured, because they're everywhere.

Exactamente, if you are a fugitive on the run in Mexico you are protected as long as you make regular payments. Miss a payment and they turn you over to the US. Run out of money and they turn you over. This cash cow had several years of payments to make before being turned over and the Government wants to take it out of Dog’s A**.

Not only do the Mexican illegal aliens break our laws every day and are given a pass, they also receive special perks not available to the rest of us - reduced college tuition, choice of public schools, free medical care, translators, etc.

Unless you are entering the U.S. illegally. Not intended to be a thread hijack but the drug smuggler entered our country, broke laws, got off scot free and may have even get a multimillion dollar settlement from our government.

I can definitely say that I no longer support Bush as President. I voted for him twice, but this is the last straw.

1. He has broken his oath of office by failing to protect this country by the complete failure secure our borders with Mexico.

2. His half a$$ed handling of Iraq. Specifically, trying to make friends with our enemy's before pacifying the enemy.

3. Letting an American hero who risked his life to catch a serial rapist be thrown to the wolves in Mexico.

Go ahead and flame away Bush bots.

I can add some things to go along with your disappointments in him.
Failure to persue illegalities by the Clintons.
Failure to hold to task liberals and dems who skew America.
Failure to hold down spending.

Is it not obvious that Mexican authorities fear repeats of Operation Casablanca, in which the FBI tricked Mexican money launderers, I mean banking officials, to accept "free vacations" in Las Vegas, only to apprehend them once they arrived? The pretty monopolized television media had a field day arousing nationalistic sentiments in support of the money launderers.

Anyhow, there's a lot of money in the drug trade, and it's not in some folks' best interest to disrupt that by letting folks like Dog Chapman get away with this kinda stuff down in Mexico.

There was a million bucks riding on that catch. He spent a lot of money trying to get Luster and then ended up not being able to collect.

Everything aside, what Dog did was good for everyone. He helped protect Mexican women from a serial rapist and brought justice (not to mention peace of mind) to the American women Luster raped and beat.

I've a gut feeling this is about money and not so much about any laws broken. I don't have a lot of confidence in Mexico being honorable about their laws being broken. Maybe I'm sterotyping.

Might have been good for everyone but it wasn't smart. Filming yourself committing a crime (bounty hunting is illegal in Mexico) then turning that film into a TV show is a short path to nothing good.

American bounty hunters have done time in Mexico before, and Canada too, as far as they're concerned it's kidnapping. That doesn't mean this situation is a straight law and order thing, but it does mean there's a perfectly good legitimate reason for them to want to put Dog away. He did break their laws, and he did turn himself into a TV star with the footage from breaking their law. I hope Dog finds a loophole, or at least that his fears of what will happen to him in Mexican prison are wrong, but he did make this bed.

I agree he made his own bed. He believed his lawyers when they told him Mexico wouldn't come after him. That wouldn't have been good enough for me. I'd have wanted to resolve it legally instead of being content with jumping bail.
Still, I'm glad Luster is behind bars. I'm glad Dog did what he did. He and his wife are quite entertaining. Wish they'd be more careful about exposing those small children on the show. Not sure if they are their children or grandchildren.
