Didn't he change his name to Lion The Bounty Hunter?

Com'on brah, he doesn't even have any guns. Just mace and paintball. Perfect for the UK and chasing chavs. Brah.

Doesn't he have a felony conviction or two? Does the UK normally let felons into their country?

No. Neither does Canada. (unless you've been deemed rehabilitated either by a certain amount of time passing or exemption by an immigration officer)

I'm gonna white knight this brah

Everyone talks about how prison is over crowded, how we should try and rehabilitate instead of punish. This guy did some f*cked up sh*t in his past but he's tried to make up for it. Sure the UK has every right to say "no you can't come here" but it still sucks that someone is never allowed to prove they aren't who they were. Which in a lot of cases leads people back to a life of crime.

Also I don't give a f*ck about Mexico's extradition laws, he brought that rapist piece of sh*t to justice and he was found guilty. Good for him.

Funny how all it takes to be rehabilitated is some cash.

He seems to be really regretful for the the life he led back then and even accepting of the fact this will hang around his neck forever (i.e. willing to do the time even if it is a little harsh for the crime of waiting in the car while a friend shoots a dealer he is arguing with). Even the arresting officer said he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

I believe he deserves a pardon and his record expunged, and not just because he is famous. And I wonder if he had been pardoned would the UK allow him in?

/btw, this is one of the examples I use when I caution my sons to be wary of who they chose as friends

Moral of the story being don't hang out with Dog the Bounty Hunter or you will wind up shooting someone.
 
2012-08-15 09:22:56 AM  
Sadly, he was born here, so we can't keep him out of the U.S.
 
2012-08-15 09:33:58 AM  
i've seen the show and i feel bad for Dog. unless it's all put-on for the camera, that is one cartoon character family unlike anything i've ever seen. and i've seen some great freak families at State Fairs over the years, which for some reason brings the creme de la creme of OMG out of the woodwork.

FTA:"It feels terrible. I'm dumbfounded. I can't believe it, after all these years, especially when we've been on television for the past nine years."

Dear Brah,

Apparently there are countries that feel being a character on TV is not the same as having character.

And subsequently intentionally drove a murderer away from the scene of a crime to help him escape and made no attempt to turn the guy in.

He's already gotten loads of leniency in the form of only having to spend 18 months in prison for aiding and abetting a murder. If we hadn't accounted for the "did the wrong thing out of panic more than intent" factor, he would literally only now just have gotten out of prison.

No, you don't get your record of helping murderers get away with murder wiped. Ever. Even for a young person that's terminally shiatty judgement and you deserve the social consequences, unless we find a way to resurrect dead people at some point.
 
2012-08-15 10:10:25 AM  
He's familly, brah. We've got to take him back.

So the murderer got away with the murder?
I thought he went to prison.

The thing is, he wasn't convicted of aiding and abeting a murder. He was actually convicted of murder: essentially, he got hit with guilt by association. It can be argued that aiding and abeting should perhaps remain on his record, but murder should not, because he didn't kill anyone.

But I'm forced to wonder how exactly this would interact with the legal system. Is it possible to replace one offense on a record with a lesser one without having a new trial? Is it even possible to do that with a trial, or would that count as double jeopardy? In other words, is it even legally possible to remove this from his record without expunging the whole thing?

If it's not, then tradeoffs have to be made. Is it worth keeping a crime that he committed off of his record, for the sake of ensuring that said record doesn't contain a crime he did not commit?

While i might agree that he should only have aiding and abetting on his record even that would be enough to keep him out of the UK for life. Hell you can't (legally) visit a good number of countries with a DUI or possession on your record.

Both the USA and the UK will let any old coont into our countries, but for some reason when it comes to letting UK to USA and USA to UK, it's always a pain in the arse. We fight wars together FFS!

Let anyone in? Check the USG website.

Any crime of "moral turpitude"? No entry.
Ever convicted of two or more offences of any sort where the punishment adds up to five years or more? No entry.
And conviction involving drugs? No entry.

Honest question, then what the fark is it? I thought its status was similar to Puerto Rico, being semi-autonomous but relying on the UK for for pretty much everything and holding the Queen as their soverign?

The Isle of Man and the Channel Islands are Crown dependencies. They are autonomous countries that are owned by the Cown Link.
