RECKLESS, NOW DEAD: Bounty hunters in Texas get dead (VIDEO)

June 28, 2017

WFAA Photo

Shots rang out at the Nissan of Greenville, Texas Tuesday evening. Two bounty hunters had tracked down a fugitive and confronted him inside the business, completely indifferent to the safety of employees and other customers. The three traded over two dozen rounds. In the end, all three died of their injuries. Thankfully, no bystanders were injured.

A cellphone video shows the moment the bounty hunters confronted their prey. Of course, Mr. Fugitive really didn't want to go back to jail. In the video below, you can see the suspect shoot over his shoulder, directly into the chest of one of the men at nearly point-blank range. Shots continued for several more seconds.

Plenty of people have expressed concern about the two "fugitive recovery specialists" and how they handled themselves. They reportedly identified themselves as federal agents to the dealership's staff, and then confronted a violent felon in the store with all manner of innocent people nearby.


From Fox4News

Rick Ford, the owner of the dealership, said the bounty hunters came into the showroom and identified themselves as federal agents. He said they waited there for several hours for Hutchinson to show up.

Ford said he and his employees didn't give the men permission to be in the showroom but never asked them to leave or to show their badges…

Bounty Hunters in Texas

In Texas, there is really no license for a ‘bounty hunter.’ They are licensed private investigators and have to have prior law enforcement experience or investigative experience, take numerous classes, go through an FBI background check and pass a state exam.

But even with that kind of experience, multiple private investigators said the bounty hunters in this shooting may have made some poor decisions.

 

You don't say. Any number of bystanders could have been wounded or killed during the melee.

If there's a lesson to take away from this video, it's if you find yourself in the same public location as "bounty hunters", that's probably a good time to find another place to be post haste, not to get your cell phone out and film the proceedings.

    A gunfight inside a small room is a lot like a knife fight – only get into one if you really like bleeding.

    These two dimwits have reaped the fruit of a series of very poor descisions. Natural selection at work.

    Fortunately the violent convict will not be continuing to plague society.
