"Born on a mountain, raised in a cave. Arresting fugitives is all I crave."

Private law enforcement? A profile of Duane "Dog" Chapman, "one of only a handful of men across the country who makes a living as a professional bounty hunter. Together with an estimated 8,000 bail enforcement agents (BEA), they account for 30,000 to 40,000 arrests each year — all at no cost to taxpayers."

There is also an interesting post at Marginal Revolution by economist Alex Tabarrok on the bounty hunting industry.
