Also, many of your polls are poorly worded, such as today's poll,
Would you adopt a child from another country?
Most of your viewers like me wouldn't adopt a child from this country either. You always leave out an important choice.
Another example would be.
What is you favorite MJ song?
You leave out the choice
I'm not a fan, or his music does not interest me.

We have a problem in this country, where was the airline officials who allowed this kid on the plane? Also where was the homeland security officials who cleared a 7 year old boy alone on a plane. Could someone start asking these question.

I think this Survivor producer is guilty, guilty, guilty! He should be arrested and brought to justice immediatly this was such a heneous way to kill somebody and throw her in the sewer and there was blood found in the room I pray this man is executed!

Also I love Conan always have and always will! I hated the way NBC did Conan and just to bring Leno back was a stupid move for NBC! I just don't think TBS will work out for Conan as much as I want it to, I would have rather seen him went to Fox and this time slot is such a hard slot to fill and on TBS, a cable network, its very, very hard but it can be done! Conan will be up against not just Jay Leno and David Letterman but also up against BET'S big late night shows with Monique and Wendy Williams! I pray for Conan and his career at TBS!

Glad to hear that Conan has found a new home at TBS.

Our country is a financial mess, our congress and president have no clue what the American people want, we are engaged in two wars where young men and women continue to die. Yet, all of the major news groups are more concerned about Conan O'Brian, some kooky talk show hosts, than critical issues. If this is the best all of you can do then truly, your efforts to place a veil over the eyes of America and feed them BS have been successful.

Children are NOT born bad. Through horrific environmental situations, creates abandonment issues and issues surrounding attachment disorders.

I have a great amount of admiration for any family who makes the decision to adopt! All adoptions are difficult. Very traumatic for the child and difficult for the family who adopts. It is a life-long responsibility and you do not know genetically or environmentally what has happened to this child.

The only question I have is, with our own group homes (new word for orphanages) bulging at the seams with too many children needing to be adopted, why adopt from another country? Does anyone realize that many children in the USA are often returned to their sexually abusing, violent families because there is just no place to put these children?

Mexican authority's use a poor-man's form of water torture interrogation which is entirely effective in separating the guilty from the innocent. They take a liter sized bottle of carbonated water and clamp their hand over the suspects mouth while pouring the entire bottle of carbonated water down the nose of the suspect which directly feels like you are drowning.

Even the most hard-core drug cartel members swiftly tell the Mexican authority's everything they are asked to reveal given that form of interrogation. I wouldn't doubt if this suspect in question hasn't already undergone a similar form of harsh interrogation and was likely determined to not be entirely innocent.

I do have respect for Dog the Bounty Hunter and for what he said and the job he performs. However he made the Mexican authorities sound as if they are so wonderful and that the jail may be a paradise. Some months ago I heard on a local CTV Toronto W5 program about a man who resided in Canada and decided to take his family to live in Mexico. He loved the area and thought that it was a haven. From what was stated he befriended two men; did not know that they were involved in drugs, kingpins. He was arrested with them and sent to prison. He was in prison for approximately one year without a hearing. He was not given soap and toothpaste and had to go without them. The Canadian government made provisions for him to receive these items and change of clothes. He is allowed either 15 to 30 minutes a week to speak to his wife and small children. His wife in Canada has been pleading for his release. The Mexican ambassador in Canada refused to intervene. To this day I have no idea if he is still in the Mexican jail and if he was granted a hearing. When I heard this story, my heart went out to them. I did write my MP- Member of Parliament and asked that he intervene and also sent emails to everyone on my list informing them about this man's dilemma and to write their MP's with a copy to W5. I may have received a reply from my MP that the writing was sent to a government authority. To this day I have no idea if the man was able to get a hearing. The wife stated that they were utilizing all their financial resources to assist him. The wife rented her home and was living in the garage in order to provide for her family and to assist her husband. I heard this true, pathetic story and I do not have confidence in the Mexican government and in those types of jails which also have rats, etc. I concluded that those who visit Mexican must be extremely careful lest they end up in such a prison without a fair and just hearing.

The woman who adopted the little Russian boy should not have returned him to Russia, alone, on the plane. I view this as a scandal. She was responsible for him. She should have contacted the children's aid and informed them about him prior to sending him back to Russia. There is no excuse for what she did and it is irresponsible. She had the alternative to seek advice and help from child authorities who may have taken the child and placed him elsewhere in another home be it temporary until they could sort that situation out.

Smith in Oregon   April 12th, 2010 10:21 pm ET

@ Jean, Mexico like nearly all country's around the world greatly respond to judicial donations of large amounts of money. If your friend has a large amount of money he can likely receive a hearing. And YES I've also heard that to have even the bare basics in Mexican prisons you need to pay nearly 10,000 dollars a year to obtain them.

The murder of the producers wife does in fact seem to follow all the other cases we have seen in the past- Tara Grant, Lacey Peterson. Dog was invited on the show since he knows the law – both sides and has seen the inside of a prison cell in Mexico. He actually has knowledge and facts so unless you have been there yourself and have seen otherwise then I do believe you can not argue with his point of view. He faces more criminals in a week than most of us face in a lifetime.

Hey "Dog" how many tatoo's do you have?
Love your show 🙂

jack   April 13th, 2010 12:36 am ET

Larry, who you prefer to hang out with, Snoop Dog , or Dog the Bounty Hunter?

jack   April 13th, 2010 12:47 am ET

This crime sounds like it might have been unpremeditated homicide or an accident as a result of a fight that got out of hand. Then, in a panic, he may have tried to hide the body. This may be an example of why people should not ever get physical when they have marital arguments, because they can turn tragic. Short of death , the results of battering are quite horrible as well. May the wife rest in peace.

Puffy eyes, slurred speech, unwashed hair,blood red face.

Proof that the "DOG' is still doing hard drugs and abusing alcohol.


Gerald Jolly   April 13th, 2010 12:50 pm ET

Shame on you Larry, for giving this poor excuse for a man, "FREE AIR TIME"

Gerald Jolly   April 13th, 2010 8:10 pm ET

You know, if you look at the attached photo of the "DOG' it is impossible to withold the vomit in your stomach.

People that he has grabbed, and held for the bounty payers all have the same comment.

Quote: It's not so much as I did'nt want to be caught, it's the thought of having to sit in the same vehicle with him and his fat sweaty wife that bothers me most.

Does the DOG and his fat ugly wife ever wash or shower themselves.

GEEEEEZZZZZ! The smell and body stink is worse than being caught

Gerald Jolly   April 13th, 2010 8:12 pm ET

Does the DOG Chapman know that it is very inexpensive to by deoderant, soap, and razor blades??

Ted   April 14th, 2010 8:46 am ET

So Dog wrote a book? Looking at him one would wonder if he can read and write, however, we can be sure someone else did it for him.
Bounty hunters should be forbidden, it should be up to the police, and such ridiculous show has no place on TV with just a little class.
