How Bounty Hunters get away with it?

I'm watching a bounty hunter show on TV,
Can anybody just be a bounty hunter?
Let's say that a bounty hunters thinks the person that he is looking for lives with me, comes and wants to look for him inside my house, what will the police do if I call them and tell them some bounty hunters are inside my house?

You live in Texas. If he comes to your door tell him to leave and shut the door. He he tries to force his way just shoot him, it's the Texas way!

Bounty Hunters walk a narrow line of legality. A lot of times the court will turn a blind eye to the manner in which the hunter brought the accused in. However, I've run into them a few times and the second they start getting a big-head there is always someone (namely a police officer) to knock them back into place.

they actually have (or had.....) a WIDE girth of the law.... can pack a lot of places/states where the common man cant. ANY place listed on the bail agreement with the bondsman IS pretty much cart blanche for the Bounty hunters to ransack at will. Now if its NOT mentioned in/on the bondsman agreement or listed as known accomplices, other known addresses~ well, you're well into a gray area: but for 200+ years bounty hunters pretty much did what they wanted wherever they wanted. It litterally has only been in the last 15 or so years that States have started to reel them in.

If you say no to a search-- chances are they'd stake outside and call the cops; but much the same there-- if it aint on a warrent these days-- tuff luck if the owner/resident says no to a search as far as I know......

The only trail that sucks is the one you haven't been on yet.

If it aint related to God, guns, women, wheelin, or music then it aint worth much talking about it is it?

This guy asked the bounty hunter for a search warrant, the bounty hunter said here's the search warrant, and pointed to his gun the guy still didn't get it, the bounty hunter just made his way in

Hahaha, whenever I hear the words "Bounty Hunters" this guy always comes to mind...



...If I opened up my door and saw Dog and his crew staring back at me, I wouldn't even put up a fight. I'd rolling around on the ground in a fit of laughter. How can anybody take him seriously with an appearance like that.

Saw that as well. He has an arrest warrant on file, but not a search warrant. If they have reason to believe the fugitive is inside, they can still make entry.

As mentioned, they walk a fine line. They are still held liable for some things, which is why they watch themselves.

dog is a freaking joke. they dont carry guns and they get all religious and gushy gushy. the guys on national geographic, which are in my area, carry guns and they arent nice to the prisoner. they just arrest the person and do their job and thats that.... oh and i think dog cant carry guns because he has a felony. but he says its because it makes people think that they are big and bad and takes them on a power trip. bounty hunters are badass though. not much you can do to stop them. i would even consider bounty hunting instead of LE. they probably make better money too.

If some assclown forced his way into my house he would get shot. The next big thing for crooks wanting to do home invasions is to impersonate a bounty hunter. Knock, show a warrant or get it bullets first.

Depends on whether you let them in or not. Bounty hunters in Texas have to be licensed bail bondsmen. Not just anyone can go out and be a "bounty hunter", and there is no special protection given to them under the law. If you let them in, they are guests. If you don't, they are intruders. The way warrants read, they are not directed to just anyone. They usually say "To any peace officer". Most cops don't like them. In Texas, the bounty hunter IS the bondsman (or an employee of the bondsman) that got the person out of jail that the cops worked so hard to put in jail. What would make you think the police would be excited to offer them assistance to do the job all over again? They can carry under the CHL law, but are bound by all laws pertaining to such.

Some PDs will even turn bounty hunters, or bondsmen, away with their prisoners. A lot of these clowns will go out and pick someone up, then try and pawn them off on a local PD, which the PD then has to deal with while they wait on the county to come get, simply because the bondsman doesn't want to have to wait the two hours or so for the county to process the prisoner. They are turds.

I only got called a handful of times to "help" a bondsman, and I don't ever remember getting out of the car any of those times. One bondsman filed a complaint and tried to claim that he paid a bond to an officer to get a guy out, but all the money never made it to the jail counter. The officer had to go through an IA investigation. The lying bondsman only paid half of the guy's warrants. It was ALL on video. One that I dealt with a lot had a cousin that was a dealer. The cousin would sell dope to people, then call in and have them busted by whoever the local agency happened to be. She'd then drop her relative bondsman's name to these buyers to help get them out of jail. She was making money off the dope, and he was making money getting them out of jail. Let me repeat, they are turds.

If a bounty hunter came to my door, they have to the count of three to get to the curb where it no longer belongs to me.
