7 bounty hunters are accused of killing an innocent man

The seven bounty hunters went after the same target: A fugitive wanted for probation violation. They thought they found their man inside a Nissan.

When they tried to serve a warrant, that's when things escalated.

The case in Clarksville, Tennessee, is noteworthy for many reasons. The bounty hunters ended up shooting and killing an innocent man. And, more importantly, they broke the law when they did so.

1. Bounty hunters/skip tracers or whatever you want to call them

 

Are the scum of the earth. 99% of them are either wannabe cops who can't pass a background check / psych eval / entry exam/training or fired cops who can't get hired in the field anymore.

I can think of dozens I interacted with over the years and maybe 4 were decent professionals.

3. As a Private Eye who has worked a fugitive recovery or two...

I completely agree with your assessment.

I will not get into that world again.

2. They are not law enforcement. How can they serve a warrant?

5. It varies in every state but when you post a bond

 

You sign a contract that allows the agents of the bail bondsman a great bit of latitude in searching for you, including in many states the ability to take you into custody, serve a warrant for your arrest, enter and search your residence and property and many other things.

It can vary greatly from state to state what is allowed.

The contracts generally also release the bail bondsman and their agents from liability for any harm that comes to you or your property if they have to come for you. Break the door to your residence down? You signed a paper saying they could and then walk away with your home unsecured if you as didn't show for court dates.

And if you post bond for someone else the contract will generally require you to pay the full amount of the bond if they abscond and also be responsible for any and all expenses related to the recovery. So the scumbag bounty hunters will often run up huge expense accounts dining and staying in first class lodging on a hunt when they know they will get their fugitive and then make the person who posted the bond pay.

4. I really think that many people who are really into guns "hope" that someday

they will be able to use them on the biggest prey - a human.

We've seen it with cops shooting black men in the back and others using, "Stand your ground" used to execute people. I think they are the kind that were hoping for a situation that would allow them to legally kill a human and just pushed the limit.

I don't think most gun owners are like this so if you are going to flame me please remember this.

10. The only good bounty hunter is a dead one.

They are the ultimate wannabe cops.
Scum, scum, scum. A lifetime in solitary will teach them.
