    Perhaps I don't understand legal system in western countries. So far, I think to investigate or track down some case or person, you can do it in a secret maner, in which none police personnel can be hired to handle the case. But to arrest somebody, you need police (or else what are police paid for?), and in case it is not immediate criminal, you'd need a warrant from court to arrest someone.

    For the US, where guns are spread when arresting somebody, you are expected the person to carry a gun, and always be ready for a firefight. When two arm men with gun ready in hands get killed by an unprepared person, it's rather stupid.

    More likely, they are both recipients of cosmetic surgery, which is why their facial features look similar.

    That was very interesting, but people of different ethnicity serving in the German army is well known.

    Probably no one else. I could only wonder what went through the man's mind through it all. Interesting that he chose not to discuss his experience later in life, although it would have been one fascinating memoirs.

    Yang Kyoungjong wasn't the only East Asian to serve in the German Army, Chiang Wei-kuo, the adopted son of RoC President Chiang Kai-shek, commanded a panzer unit in Germany's push into Austria and was promoted to lieutenant for leading his troops. He was recalled back to China right before receiving marching orders to fight in Poland. Truth is often stranger than fiction.

    I wonder if he ever got to collect three different army pensions.

    The bolded part of your post is incorrect. Bounty hunters are hired by for-profit private businesses - bail bondsmen - who make money by covering the bail of someone due in court and charging them a fee for it. When their customers skip bail the bail bondsmen lose money, so bounty hunters are hired to bring the person in so bail bondsmen can get their bail money back from the authorities.

    See the following on bail bondsman:

    I believe bounty hunters also arrest deadbeat fathers. Who reward them?

    As stated in my previous post; I don't understand the way legal system in western countries work. However, I supposed the term bounty hunters only appear in movies. Never thought they actually exist in real life.
