In Greenville, Texas, in a recent incident in the city where two bounty hunters were killed in a shootout along with a fugitive, which shows the profession is not that glamorous as it showed in Hollywood for this long. In fact, the profession is timeworn and still practiced in the modern era, with the danger levels as all-time high as it wasn’t in the past, says many experts on this matter.
Since childhood, everybody loves to watches movies, where they portray the bounty hunters as romantic figures who are one of the most popular cultures in the American cinemas and also portrayed by several Hollywood biggies such as Clint Eastwood, John Wayne. But, in real life it is not so glamorous and not at all romantic, though they are violent and very aggressive in nature, which also has their rules to do a job without portraying themselves under any jurisdictions, thus gets killed viciously.
Historically, this is not at all native to the United States, as the profession goes back hundreds of years, even before the US was a nation; it came from England, as some English people follow a different path to catch a fugitive. Sometimes, these bounty hunters were used to catch a criminal, who was accused but got bail in certain circumstances and need some assistance to bring him back for trial.
The shocking incident happened when all the people involved in a shooting were transformed into a victim, it is very depressing fact, says an official.
