Become a bounty hunter! Felony convictions don't matter!
« on: January 11, 2019, 11:01:46 AM »

https://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/times-watchdog/high-adrenaline-bounty-hunter-industry-operates-with-little-oversight-despite-concerns-over-training-tactics/

I knew just about nothing on bounty hunting before I read this article.  Interesting how little regulated it is and how much the agents can get away with.

I've got very little respect for so called bounty hunters.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

Paywall


I don't know why you always, always hit a pay wall at every news link we post here, but I hope it's because of your ESR Firefox browser.  :P
This member used to have another name, and the name that this member used to have was fistful.

A pop up comes up asking you to sign up, but you can X it out and go back to the article.  I can see it.

Looking at the article, I get the impression the prosecutors are doing their best NOT to prosecute the bounty hunters for serious crimes.  I guess that is hard to prove.

No paywall. The Seattle Times just won't let you through if you keep your adblocker on (at least for adblck plus + firefox). If you whitelist them, you can read all you want.

You sure they don't just have a filter for him?

For me, the paywalls go away if I use incognito mode and/or clear my cookies.
