Yes, you read that correctly. Dog the Bounty Hunter, or Duane Chapman, held a press conference to announce his plans to enter Russia and illegally capture Edward Snowden.
Elite Daily reports that the press conference was held outside Hawaii’s Da Kine Bail Bonds, where Dog explained, “Sometimes you gotta bend the rules to save America, and if I can catch this traitor Snowden and bring him back to God’s side, then it’ll be worth the risk of a lifetime of hard labor in a Siberian gulag.”
What’s more disturbing than Dog believing he might “save America”, is that he is not alone in his hunt. According to Elite Daily, there have been several bounty hunters willing to risk their freedom to capture and return the ‘fugitive’ Snowden.
One individual, of what I’m assuming was ‘the press’, asked Dog if he had a message for the whistleblower. The Internet Chronicle claims Dog angrily ranted, “Every Dog has it’s day, but Snowden, your days are numbered. Me and Beth are gonna catch you and bring ya to justice, the American way. If you’re listening’ slick Eddy, the Dog’s comin’ for ya. You can run, but you can’t hide. The Dog has picked up your trail.”
Dog and his wife Beth are off, reportedly seen boarding a plane for Hong Kong. Apparently the Dog is planning on sniffing out clues in Snowden’s old hotel room.
Let the search begin…
RYOT NOTE: We certainly know what ‘side’ Dog is on, but whether you believe he is a traitor or hero, it cannot be denied that Snowden inspired discussion on a subject that has generally been ignored: digital rights to privacy. The American Civil Liberties Union believes in these rights and the necessity of their advancement as our society modernizes with such rapidity. See what your rights are.
