I get a lot of friend requests on Facebook.  I don't send them out, but accept them.
Duane Chapman sent me a request and I clicked accept.  Then I thought... Hey, that name sounded familiar.
DOG THE BOUNTY HUNTER.

    I've seen the show.  He seems like a nice guy.  Just out in left field.

    He is very disliked here in Hawaii. In fact, he went to Colo to do his show for an extended period due to popular demand. He has had his b--t handed to him several times, ran and left his son to take the a-s whipping in a bar, and has p-o'd most of the people he meets or hassles in the middle of the night trying to find someone. He goes into the big preacher mode telling everyone how he is "taking dangerous criminals off the street". Those criminals are "on the street" because he bailed them out. He goes to Mexico, with a camera crew and stunt double, where bounty hunting is illegal. And is surprised when he gets arrested. On a personel level, I had a run in with "Tim" while serving court papers. A bigger, more offensive piece of cr-p I have never had the misfortune to meet. A couple of weeks later he was caught, naked, parked in a local mall. I could go on but I think you get the picture. Oh, and his wife gives trailor park trash a bad name.

    I've been waiting for him to run up against a true badass that turns out to be more than he expected and guns him and his OC armed crew. He will kick in the wrong door one day while showboating and his target will have the wrong buddy with him...

    Its kind of like Steve Erwin. I loved Steve's shows but I always told my wife that he would mess with the wrong snake or croc one day although his was more on the freakish accident side of the coin. I hated to be proved right. Steve was cool. I'm not so sure about Dog tho' Storyteller's accounts are no surprise.

    The reason "Cur the Bounty Poser" and his crew don't carry firearms is because they are convicted felons and are not allowed to. If you watch real carefully, the "body armour" they wear is fake as well, another thing that's illegal for a felon to have. Their body armour is just a foam rubber prop.

    No that's illegal for felons too. Most Correctional agencies that issue armour, issues the ballistic& edged weapon combo armour.

    Strange. I have heard of the opposite side of the coin on Dog.
    As far as Mexico goes I was told he had taken a chomo out and rescued two girls he had kidnapped from the U.S.A. and taken to Mexico.
    But I think there is more to every story on reality TV than we ever get to find out.

    Heck I didn't know body armor was illegal for felons to posess. I have never ran into one with it, ever, yet. That's interesting. I'll have to look it up.

    You're looking for 18 U.S.C. § 931.  Mostly illegal, not totally.  Only crimes of violence make it illegal.  A non-violent felony wouldn't.

    eh, watched the show a couple of time...more hype than substance but hey, thats reality TV..find a person with a suitable "hook" or characteristic and you can make a show about almost anything.  I am waiting for the world to wake up and realize that not only is "Cake Boss" just a baker but that fondant stuff he keeps using is freaking unedible to boot.   The entire reality tv shows have just gotten so bad that I am waiting for a reality show about the homeless to be on...and why do they like to highlight red necks and what I would call "2nd or 3rd tier economy" type jobs as well...are we really so damn bored with our own lives we need to watch fat guys in tow truck repossess vehicles or good old boys capture 'gators that much?  Maybe one show yeah, but to have 2 or 3 competing shows on the same subject  TruTV has not been on my favorites list for some time for this very reason...

    As far as Dog goes...I am sure the guy is harmless enough but I am too waiting for him to run into somebody who thinks being shot with pepper ball is reason enough to issue some 124 or 155 grain payback in return...

    I quit watching 'Reality' TV when they cancelled "America's Most Wanted," that was a pretty good show.

    I had a buddy in bail enforcement, "Mutt" is a friggin' joke.

    I doubt that he'll ever come up against a real criminal, he's too chicken s___ to take on a case like that, and the producers of the show wouldn't let him do it anyway.

    -T.

    Didn't that come about as a result of the B of A robbery, in Cali?  I was working security around that time. When I went to buy a new vest, I had to get a letter from the boss saying I needed one for work.  I'd gotten one about six months earlier, without any problem.

    If you're not a felon it should have been a non-issue.  Anyone can buy armor.  Only felons need employment letters.

    On the other hand, I can't really figure how anyone intends to validate a letter from my employer. Our "company letterhead" is a Word template and most people aren't going to have a copy of his signature to visually compare.

    -T.

    That may be the case, but Skagg's in Phoenix, the place I got the first vest, required me to get the letter for the second vest.  And the lady at the counter knew me (I was a regular customer at the time).  So go figure.  I figure it was probably a case of CYA.  It was not too long after the Cali bank robbery.

    On the other hand, I can't really figure how anyone intends to validate a letter from my employer. Our "company letterhead" is a Word template and most people aren't going to have a copy of his signature to visually compare.

    Jesse, most of the companies I worked for had one shop that they dealt with, for uniforms, duty rigs, and such.  The company I was working for used Skagg's regularly, so they had his signature on file.  And it just gives them a way to cover themselves, if it turns out that they sold something that was used in a crime.

    More than likely.  With murky laws, especially NEW murky laws, dealers often error on the side of caution (as Jesse mentions).
