About the 3:00 minute mark you can see where this guy is in BIG trouble. You definetly have to watch the area’s your going into. Remember your fugitive might be friends with everyone on the block. This officer should of never went into the car. When the guy refused to give his name that’s an immediate red flag of someone with a warrant. The officer should of stood by and called backup immediately. This whole situation would of been avoided once more backup arrived.
I once served a warrant and created almost this same situation. The whole neighborhood starting pushing cops and throwing bricks at the police cruisers. Next thing I know there are 20 police cars and we scooped my guy and like a funeral procession we all left bumper to bumper. The cruiser in front of me got hit by a huge brick on the way out. I watched the kid throw it and run. Glad he didnt pick my truck instead. A major rule of bounty hunting…get your fugitive and get the hell outta there
Video is kind of crappy but just another reminder of the people you run into hunting your fugitives. These people here were owners of a motel and have nothing to do with the fugitive and yet they end up in the fight with the bounty hunters. So beware of everyone around you.
Just to give you more of an idea of how hard it is to be a good Bounty Hunter I posted this video. You’ll hear the Marshall saying she’s worked this case for a week around the clock and that they also have undercover agent’s staking out a house 24/7. They are also using official police programs to get their info where you most likely won’t have access to that(unless you have friends on the inside). They also have the luxury of multiple units following car’s if they need. They were able to pull the vehicle’s over. You will have no help even close to this…so good luck. You’ll notice the way they did catch them is they got a tip from a family member. One who was probably scorned. There’s usually always someone your fugitive knows who is pissed enough to rat them out just to see them go to jail.
What I especially like about this video is when they identify the car driving around as the fugitive’s friends car the 2 Marshall’s have vastly different opinions on what to do. The one Marshall wants to take the car down and try to keep the fugitive pinned down until they locate him. The other Marshall KNOWS that the fugitive IS going to get in that car soon. While I think both idea’s would work I definetly would keep eyes on the car and wait. You know for a fact that your guy is getting in that car. They have numerous police vehicles around and the streets blocked off. Sitting on the car is definetly the right choice. As you see. Sometimes you just have to have patience and relax and wait.
Im only posting 2 parts of this 5 part episode. I like how the Marshall has the fugitive’s roommate call the guy’s cell phone and the Marshall hears the dog’s barking on the phone. The same dog’s that are out back. This guy is very good. They know he’s hiding somewhere close by trying to figure out how to escape. At the end the Marshall also notice’s a car circling driving very slowly. Another great observation.
I thought this video was pretty good. Although he doesn’t quite show you how to take the gun out at the end. I will post my own BHFH Gun Disarming video for you soon and show you how to do that. In the video he says when a good time is to lunge in. He’s correct on that. Me personally if I was in the situation in the video, I would give a strange look over the bad guys shoulder and act like somethings wrong behind him or just keep looking to the opposite side of his gun hand. Any one in the gunman’s situation will obviously be very nervous and you can get him to think maybe someone’s behind him. Trust me it works, Ive used that technique with people holding other weapons and they ALL looked away to see what I was looking at. It’s almost instinctive. I would also suggest (as scary as it may seem) to be closer to the gun than the instructor on the video. I would actually suggest almost barrel touching your head. If you find yourself in this deadly situation your going to want to be as close to that gun when you lunge for it. A few inches could save your life. Also remember ALWAYS 2 HANDS ON THE WRIST AND BACK OF PALM OF THE GUN HAND.
This is a great tv show. The job us bounty hunter’s do is identical to the job the Marshall’s do. We both have one mission and that’s to capture our fugitive. You can learn alot by watching how they locate people.
These guy’s here definetly know what they’re doing. They proceeded with alot of caution and gave the fugitive plenty of time to surrender. They knew who his father was and the possible law suits that could come if this arrest is not handled properly. Me personally, having been involved in hundreds of law suits, I would of had local police stand by. If this guy decided to sue you and you did ANYTHING WRONG at all, you would of been “screwed”. I have arrested family of police officer’s and in one case I arrested a police officer who had skipped court. If you find yourself in these situations handle yourself very professionally and think before you do anything.
This is a crazy video. As a bounty hunter you will encounter this alot. You’ll have an old booking photo of someone and when you arrest them , they look completely different. You will also be bonding people over many years and see them just get worse and worse. It’s sad but that’s life.
For you bounty hunters I would highly suggest learning how to clear houses correctly. I can’t tell you how many times I have had to clear house’s with the Police Dept. Not only will it keep you safe but will get you more respect from the Police. If you know your fugitive is inside hiding, there is a good chance he has a weapon. So get out there and practice…
