Stupid

I think the series shows the brutal force that police practice that is very wrong misleading and it shows several episodes where the police trick the family members or friends into giving up a suspect I think that should be against the law and that one woman on there I'll call her man face

Great show but a little on the unprofessional side.

I think its good that these Marshels are catching dangerous people and getting them off the streets and they do a good job at it. What I don't agree with is some of the comments that are made about the fugitives they are going after. For example, "They can't be changed". U.S. Marshels are not doctors, they only apprehend wanted people that are presumed innocent untill proven guilty. Saying that someone can't be changed presumes that they are guilty before they are proven guilty. When viewers watch this show and hear these types of comments it creates a false sense of security that fuels media hype and vigilantism.
