MSNBC has learned that U.S. officials have arrested TV reality star Duane "Dog" Chapman and two family members in Hawaii for extradition to Mexico.

Chapman's wife told MSNBC's Rita Cosby that heavily armed U.S. marshals arrived at the family's house today and took away Chapman, his brother, Tim, and son, Leland.

"I was getting the children ready for school and the U.S. marshals burst in our door and they just came right in and took him," said Beth Chapman on MSNBC.

"He was in shock. He was, he was shocked. He was shocked and he was amazed that the marshal's service that came to get him didn't even treat him as kind as he treats his own prisoners."

A representative from the Marshal's office had a different version of what happened in Hawaii.

"There were 7 deputy marshals who went to Chapman's home," said Jay Beber, from the U.S. marshal's office in Hawaii.

"We knocked on the door to announce that we were U.S. marshals. Mr. Chapman was compliant and very respectful."

The Chapmans were in custody and expected to remain in custody for three days until a bond hearing is held.

Mona K. Wood, a publicist for the star of the popular cable series "Dog The Bounty Hunter," said Chapman would be vindicated. "He arrests the bad guys -- and he is definitely not one of them," she said.

The charges stem from Chapman's capture of Max Factor heir Andrew Luster on June 18, 2003, in Puerto Villarta, Mexico, said Marshals spokeswoman Nikki Credic in Washington.

The three are being held in Honolulu. They will face an extradition hearing to Mexico under terms of treaties between the U.S. and Mexico, Credic said.

Charges have been pending against the three since local police in Mexico arrested them shortly after they roped in Luster. They posted bail but never returned to Puerto Villarta for their court hearing on July 15, 2003, Credic said.

Mexican authorities demanded that the Chapmans transfer Luster to Mexican police. Their refusal to do so led to their initial arrest.

A U.S. warrant for their arrest was signed by a federal judge in Honolulu on Wednesday.

Bounty hunting is considered a crime in Mexico. At that time, Mexican prosecutors maintained that Luster's capture violated their sovereignty.

The Chapmans each could face up to 8 years in prison if they are returned to Mexico and convicted on kidnapping charges.

Luster is now in jail, serving a 124-year term for rape.

OK, lemme get this straight!

Mexico refuses to extradite ANYONE to us who is accused of a capitol crime, such as murdering police officers, forcible rape and chold molestation, bonk robbery where a death occurs, etc. because the accused might receive the death penalty. In fact, the only people that Mexico will extradite are US citizens, accused of lesser crimes both in the US and Mexico.

If you are a mexican citizen, or your grandparents were before they jumped the border into America, you are safe if you make it to Tijuana.

However, Mexico demands that the US extradite anyone accused of a crime in Mexico, even if it includes public urination (ask me how I know that for sure). Amazingly the Bushsky andministration follows up on 71% of the extradition requests.


These are not people who have committed ANY crime within the US, but the US Marshall knocks their doors down anyway.

What ever happened to probable cause?

How about having a warrant issued by a court of competant jurasdiction?

How about maintaining the sovereignty of America by keeping our judicial system free from the hands of third world despots and tyrants?

If Dog has committed a crime that affected and American's rights, I would be all for his extradition. However that would be contingent upon Mexico granting reciprocity and extraditing EVERYONE that is wanted and hiding south of the border. Which they will never do.

I remember the press reporting the incident when it first happened. I had hoped this was over by now. I can not believe the three of them were rearrested. Lets see "how many rights" they have as alledged criminals. I hope the judge who will reside over the hearing has a brain and uses it, releasing them and dimissing the request. If Mexico wants, let them send a bounty hunter to get them. Ooops! That's illegal isn't it.

i almost forgot about that until i read this, that is a pile of horse shit, since when does mexico tell the U.S. what to do?

09-14-2006, 07:34 PM
JMZ, don't you keep up with the news? They'll invade us if we don't comply, obviously. Swarms of Mexicans crossing the border...

...oh, wait...

09-14-2006, 07:37 PM
the invasion happening as we speak, we are starting to get influxes of illegals up here, everytime we deport one, another one takes its place

The real problem in this whole scenario, is that Bushsky and all the republicrats in congress LOVE to appease mexico (illegal aliens are the single largest one-issue voting block in the nation)!

Were the liars in office, oops, I mean politicians, held accountable to Americans and not illegal aliens from Mexico, we would NOT be in the predicament that we are.

I don't really care if Dog goes to jail in Mexico or not. If he broke their laws, well the next time he takes a vacation there they can pinch him. But while he's here, he's our SOB and they can keep their hands off.

If we don't get the murders, rapists, child molesters, armed robbers, puppy f*&^ers, and litters hiding in mexico, why should they get a bounty hunter who brought a MULTIPLE RAPIST to justice where our own national LE could not/ would not???

Screw mexico... VIVA LOS PEROS!

09-14-2006, 07:59 PM
screw mexico indeed :beat:

09-14-2006, 09:14 PM
im just gonna keep my opinions to myself on this... But I am seriously tired of a certain country just south of us.

09-14-2006, 09:17 PM
i think you need to call the minutemen on your neighbors kamo, lol

09-14-2006, 11:22 PM
the reason bounty hunting is illegal in mexico is because they are in direct competition with the corupt police. personally i couldn't care less about DOG as he is a convicted felon who was a guest at the Texas Dept. Of Corrections. HE should not be doing that line of work. But as someone who has worked in the law enforcment side of fuguitve investigation and apprehension , i am appalled that doj would allow a provisional warrant from MExico to be executed on a Sovern US Citizen. It takes years for Mexico to respond to our request and if its a mexican citizen with money-----forget about it.

09-15-2006, 09:27 AM
yeah lets not start about my parents neighbors.

09-17-2006, 10:08 PM
even more interesting is that down there, there really is no law exept what you buy. Judges, cops everyone is crooked and on the take. You could shoot someone in downtown Mexico city at high noon, be free and clear in minutes as soon as the briefcases of US cash hit the offices of officails.

And of course our dickless shitsss in office turn him over. At last count how many Mexican nationals who are wanted up here are hiding down there?
How many IF any have been turned over to US officails?

You'd think Janet Reno was still running the DoJ with all the crap going on. Personally I think we need to set up a perimeter of auto-targeting pepperball guns on the border. :machinegu Give the illegals something to think about when they're trying to make a run for it.

For a while I was thinking about buying a nice paintball marker rig and joining the Minutemen. I won't stop them from crossing, following the non-interference law :rulez that the Minutemen follow. Just give 'em a nice welcome :welcome: and let them know what some of our citizens think of their illegal entry into our country :D

I happen to like Dog. Yes he had been prison and yes I know what for. But how many convicts do you know turn their lives around the way dog has and does a good job well.

Dog is "The Bomb" in this house...and yes Kamo I used "The Bomb"....lol

09-26-2006, 09:35 AM
hahaha, wow.. i haven't heard anyone use that since the 90s.

09-26-2006, 10:27 AM
I don't know if anyone had heard this bit of news or not.

Dog has offered to pay a fine and donate to a charity in Mexico instead of having to go back to Mexico to face charges of "illegal kidnapping" of Andrew Luster, convicted serial rapist and heir to the Max Factor cosmetics company.

He's talking "mexican" to "Mexican authorites". It will probably work.

09-26-2006, 11:36 AM
