Yep. Totally legal. Taylor v. Taintor, 1873. I’d read it before, but had to look it up to reference it properly. Basically, since the fugitive has received a bond from the bondsman guaranteeing his appearance in court, if he flees the bondsman is now in essence attempting to retrieve property.
Love the ‘big guys in bullet proof tac vests’ and ‘jack booted mercenaries’ comments from this dude. I wouldn’t be happy about having a gun pointed in my face, but I wouldn’t go on the news to whine about it either. Although, if I were the bounty hunter, I wouldn’t go shower to shower checking out naked dudes. Just hang in the locker room or cover the exits to see who comes out.[/quote]
If I wanted to apprehend a potentially dangerous fugitive at minimum possible danger to my person, the first thing I’d do is try and catch the guy while he’s completely naked. Setting aside legal and ethical questions for a moment, I personally think that trying to catch the world’s most dangerous animal while he’s surprised, naked, mostly defenseless and at a huge psychological and physical disadvantage is an excellent strategic choice.
