‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’ Is Suing Chris Christie

Man, I would not want to be the target of Dog the Bounty Hunter’s ire. Chris Christie fancies himself a tough guy… meet Dog, dude. Duane Chapman, aka Dog the Bounty Hunter, is suing Chris Christie. He just filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the New Jersey governor as part of his fight against New Jersey’s bail reform measures. They went into effect in January. Under these new rules, a suspect is no longer required to post bail. Instead a judge just decides if they can go free, using some kind of lame, subjective risk assessment that supposedly weighs the person’s criminal history with the charges they face. 

Yesterday, Duane filed the suit in US District Court on behalf of Christian Rodgers’ family. Chapman alleges that the 28 year-old was shot to death by Jules Black after a judge set him free using this new insane system. He says that Christie violated the constitutional rights of Rodgers and “all African-Americans” in New Jersey by instituting these criminal-friendly bail reforms. I couldn’t agree more. Christie is culpable here as he approved and promoted this crap. As a former prosecutor, he should freaking know better. 

Gov. Chris Christie is about to go head-to-head with “Dog the Bounty Hunter” in court over the killing of a south Jersey resident — who was allegedly murdered by a man that was out on bond thanks to the state’s new bail system. 

Duane Chapman, who became famous for chasing fugitives on reality TV, has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the Christie administration as part of his ongoing push against New Jersey’s bail reform measures, which took effect in January.  Read more.....

There are a lot of criminals running free. Most of them draw gov't paychecks.
