California Bounty Hunting Laws
How to Become a Bounty Hunter Practicing Fugitive Recovery as a Bail Enforcement Agent




Opinion Editorial by Rex Venator


Bean Bag Stun Guns conjure up horror stories from bean bag shotgun rounds that have a ghastly track record of negative press irrespective of the conditions at the time law enforcement engaged a suspect with what is commonly called “less than lethal” use of force options.


In the film “The Hunter” starring Steve McQueen who plays legendary bounty hunter Ralph “Papa” Thorson, McQueen is seen utilizing a “Prowler Fouler” bean bag stun gun intended to “incapacitate” a bail jumper long enough to handcuff the bail jumper.


A government report details a series of protracted tests conducted on the Prowler Fouler and its pros and cons with swine and baboon test subjects and resulted in kinetic and pounds per square inch findings near identical to modern-day equivalents that resulted in an expansive range of post impact results ranging from annoyed test subjects to instantly killed subjects and with moderately to severely injured test subjects in-between.


The tests show that the variables of charges used, temperature, distance between the Prowler Fouler and the test subjects and actual impact sites directly, and, more importantly, indirectly had insidious effects inside the animal test subjects.


Researchers coined the expression the “Liver Phenomenon” indicating that internal organ damage, specifically the liver of test subjects, were mildly to severely damaged and in such a way and manner as to be seemingly and wholly unrelated to the strength of the load used and the actual impact sites that oftentimes showed no signs of trauma to the skin.


Injuries to test subjects ranged from recoverable organ damage to concussions and to lead shot impact fractured bones that pierced vital organs resulting in inevitable and even instant death.


This author believes that the bean bag stun gun may be a viable Self-Defense tool but not as an offensive tool and only to be used in a way and manner that is consistent with current court holdings on what constitutes the justifiable use of force or what is today being referred to as the “Quantum of Force.”


Here we arrive at what may be the more accurate set of questions: should bounty hunters use any type of bean bag round; should bean bag rounds be used with no training; what are the legal authorities for deploying a bean bag round; what is the liability associated with the improper employment of a bean bag stun gun such as the fabled Prowler Fouler?


Quantum of Force tests, minimum safe distances, and “red zones” are hyper-critical to test and establish by and through protracted study, unbiased findings, and all of which to be done before exposing bounty hunters to the technological and reasonable person test parameters that are all consistent with current court holdings or dictum insofar that the legal authorities for deploying a bean bag “payload” within the current scope and meaning of the justifiable use of force is unconditionally compulsory to protect fugitive recovery agents, bail agency contractors, and property and casualty sureties from wholly unnecessary incidents that could be easily avoided or remedied by and through proper use of force continuum training by a California Department of Insurance bail training school such as Bailspeak.


Perhaps a better question  is: “Should bounty hunters carry bean bag rounds?”
