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…
I like this video because the bail agent’s surrounded the house first, had called the police and had a game plan ready to go before they approached the house. This is what I was previously talking about when I like to corner the fugitive’s and not give them room to run. This fugitve in the video had no chance. The only problem I would have with these bounty hunter’s is that none of them are anywhere close to being in shape. You can carry the shotguns all you want but if 3 guys would of walked out that door with the fugitive you would have to start shooting everyone (preferably with non-lethal rounds or a tazer) or they would of received an ass beating for sure.
Ok, so one more clip from Dog the Bounty Hunter. This is a prime example of why I try to never use mace. I save that for Pitbulls or other vicious dogs. In my opinion if you spray the mace as in this video, you always end up with it in your eyes too. If your not used to it or sensitive to it, your going to be blinded. In this video Leland has it in his eyes and has 5 people beating on him. In this situation I would of tased the initial guy coming at me aggresively and quickly left the scene. Thank goodness Leland had a team with him. I do most of my bounty hunting alone or with one other person(cameraman mostly).
This is a clip from Dog the Bounty Hunter. This is a good example of the crap you will deal with sometimes. Just make sure you DO NOT initiate the first contact. Once someone lays their hands on you, it’s open season on their ass!! Also make sure you do not use excessive force such as a taser or gun. Those are thing’s I use as a LAST RESORT.
I like these guys but in the beginning of the video you will see why it is VERY important to stay in shape. I personally workout 5 days a week in the gym and run 3 miles every other day. Running is very critical. Enjoy the video.
I watched this video and it represents a pretty good image of what actual bounty hunting is like. The only critique I would have on these guys is they move in a little too quick. When I go hunting, I ALWAYS try to positively ID the fugitive first and wait to he goes somewhere that he is cornered such as an apartment or gas station. I never try to let them run.
There’s a few obvious mistakes that were made here and after watching the video you may or may not pick up on them. We’ll give our readers a chance to critique the video before we update our thoughts on what could have been done better.
