Dog the Bounty Hunter

Update: 7/16/08:
Dog the Bounty Hunter officially returns to A&E. The show about "second chances" will give Dog another chance. This time though, Dog's leash will be significantly shorter.





Original Post:
Duane "Dog" Chapman is best known for his hit reality series "Dog the Bounty Hunter". He is also known for the capture of Max Factor heir and serial rapist Andrew Luster in Mexico. I was at Borders where he was having an autograph session to promote his best selling book "You can run but you can't hide". Next to Dog is his wife and longtime companion Beth.

Many times Dog has to capture criminals around the island of Oahu. Sometimes the show features Dog and his team in Waikiki, Waipahu or other places on Oahu. Its fun to watch as many of the places where he catches criminals are Oahu neighborhoods. I believe that his show may be the most accurate view of the "real" Hawaii. Not that the islands are full of criminals running around but the show does portray local people and local problems.

I thought about it Steve...

The racist remarks he made was totally unacceptable. However, it seems to me that the man is trying to make amends and is truly sorry. I think that the people of Hawaii are willing to forgive and so am I. As for A&E and the rest of America, that remains to be seen.
