"Dog" isn't a hero.
The only difference between a dead bounty hunter and a dead child rapist, is that the bounty hunter appealed to base emotions and tried to pretend that "ends justify the means" wasn't the EXACT OPPOSITE of American values and way of life.
I've worked for 17 years now in the juvenile sexual victim and/or abuser field. I know EXACTLY what letting offenders escape means. Yet, our current non-laws for people like "Dog" mean worse for us. These "above the law" ass-h*les we call bounty hunters don't just target sex abusers or other fashionable deviants. In the pursuit of a runaway felon, they can break down your door, shoot your family, say, "sorry, my mistake", and be above prosecution in every state in the Union. And, because absolute power really does corrupt absolutely, most of the people doing what "Dog" is doing are even bigger pieces of filth than the people they target- because they pretend to be better while operating outside the law.
Our founders said it's better that 100 guilty men go free than a single innocent man be convicted. That's because they, unlike most of us, had the courage of their convictions, and were willing to stomach the horrors of the short-term workings of a society in the name of its long-term health.
I believe that it's time a particular "Dog" had his day... under the wheels of a truck.
And, after all, wouldn't that just make his Nielson's "Pop"?
