Free the Dog!
The "Bounty Hunter" Duane "Dog" Chapman and his two realty-show co-stars were arrested in Hawaii for laws they allegedly broke in Mexico while apprehending a rapist from a wealthy family. Our government is apparently going forward with the extradition to Mexico. It seems that after team Chapman bagged and shipped off a particulary slimey criminial (rapist and Max Factor hier Andrew Luster) the Mexican authorities retaliated by arresting them. Team Chapman skipped the country rather than show for trial.
While our goverment helps Mexico by arresting people who apprehend rapists, Mexico has ignored its extradition treaty with the United States since 2001. They argue that life sentences are too exterme a punishment for murder. As a result, thousands, that is right thousands, of Mexican nationals in this country illegally have killed people and then have escaped over the borders to Mexico. We know who they are, but the Mexican government will not assist us in getting them back for trial. Detail can be found here.
Can someone, anyone, explain to me why this administration acts so tough against some nations and then plays lap dog to the Mexican government?
