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.
Under the new rules, a suspect’s release from jail is no longer based on cash bail and is instead decided by a judge — using a risk assessment that weighs the person’s criminal history with the charges they face.
In his suit, which was filed Monday in US District Court on behalf of the family of Christian Rodgers, Chapman claims that the 28-year-old was allegedly shot to death by Jules Black, 30, after he was set free by a judge who was using the new system
Trenton, NJ – US Bail Reform has learned that legendary bounty hunter Duane “Dog” Chapman will take part in a press conference in Trenton tomorrow morning relating to important litigation being announced to address the failing New Jersey Bail Reform Act.
“New Jersey bail reform is dangerous and something must be done.” – Duane “Dog” Chapman
Tomorrow morning significant action to fight back against so called “bail reform” will be announced in Trenton. Come out and learn about what’s being done to fight against the travesty that has become New Jersey’s criminal justice system.
Announcement will be made at the federal courthouse, 402 E State St, Trenton, NJ @ 10:00 am.
A&E has canceled Dog the Bounty Hunter after eight seasons, a network spokesman confirms
The series, which stars Chapman and his family as fugitive-recovery agents and takes place in Hawaii and Colorado, had become a valuable property for the cable network, with versions of the series broadcast in Germany, New Zealand and beyond.
In its eight seasons, Dog was not without its own behind-the-scenes controversy. The series, as well as A&E, was sued in September by a man who appeared in 30 episodes of the series. He claimed the network and Chapman breached an agreement to make him a full cast member.
More recently, family drama between Dog’s sons Duane Lee and Leland and their stepmother Beth left in question who would be part of the bounty hunter’s team..
Since then, 3 of the original cast appeared in “Dog And Beth: On The Hunt ” which lasted 3 seasons. The first show was definitely the one preferred by the fans and when the DTBH was in peak form. AE networks has never done a spinoff of any type from the original show. It would be tremendous to see Dog get back home to A&E and finish his TV career on a high note. No signs of that happening at this point however. Fans can only hope and express their opinions to A&E.
In a surprising turn of events, A&E has canceled Akil The Fugitive Hunter after only one season, and only really a couple of episodes in.
“Akil the Fugitive Hunter,” combines live-action and animation to chronicle the journey of modern-day superhero Akil Muhammad as he tracks and captures some of the most elusive criminals in Los Angeles in order to keep his community safe. Narrated by actor and activist Wood Harris (“The Wire”), the 10 episode half-hour series featured original animation from influential animator Carl Jones (“Black Dynamite”) and original music from multiplatinum singer and producer Ty Dolla $ign, who also serves as executive music producer for the series.
Akil Muhammad released the following statement regarding the future of the series:
@aetv has opted not to air the remaining episodes of Akil The Fugitive Hunter at this time. Thank you to all the supporters of the show. As you know, with most superhero stories, just when you think the villain has gotten the best of them, they return BIGGER and STRONGER than before. Continue to be on the look out for Akil in the future. He has a way of showing up when you least expect it. TO BE CONTINUED……
