Welcome to my blog! I am Donald R. Hoofard, Sr. and I write the "Dane" novels. Each story is based on my life as a Federal Fugitive Recovery Agent hunting down, apprehending, and returning the baddest of the bad to U.S. Justice from foreign lands that had provided safe harbor to them until I came along. Now retired from that life, I write about my cases for you to get to know that side of life as a Professional Bounty Hunter. It is the most dangerous occupation on the face of this earth, and I have lived to tell about it.

This weblog is my online journal. You'll find my opinions on a variety of topics as well as links to other things on the web that I find interesting. When the spirit moves me, I may also include longer essays. My topics include, but are not limited to, careers and matters pertaining, and of interest to those within:
Law Enforcement
Bounty Hunting/Fugitive Recovery Agent (State, Federal, and International)
Professional Writing as a Freelancer
and whatever else related to the above you want to know about. You can email your questions to me at admin@hoofard.us .  I will respond in kind a.s.a.p. to you. Remember, I may not always agree with what you may have to say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it....

The Osama Bin Laden Affair....
First, let me state that on each radio show interview I was always asked about why I hadn't gone after Bin Laden prior his apprehension in the early hours of May 1st, 2011, and my answer was always the same. It would take a military action, not a solo hunter to get him, and sure enough, the U.S. Navy S.E.A.L. Team 6 made my prediction come true, as I knew it would. My question is, why is everybody so suprised about that?
And, I was asked since the event, why was he shot instead of arrested/captured? Simple, he has made several statements over the years that he would not be taken alive. Having said that, he set his own self up for his fate. You never just assume that kind of statement to be just a "For Press" show. If you want to survive an action like this you have to assume his statement to  be very real and act accordingly for your own safety. Remember that he may not have been armed himself, but he was surrounded with people who were all the time. So to do as the SEALs did was no suprise to me at all. It's what I would have done, or any hunter worth his salt would have done with this type of criminal, and he was one of the most dangerous ones out there.
Now, I've also been asked about his organization, Al-Qaeda. It will not faid away as you might think in the wake of Bin Laden's death. They will simply appoint a new leader and attempt to complete attack plans that Bin Laden had wanted carried out. It's simple arithmatic. The thing now is to attempt to cease their bank rolls of funds to continue this effort/cause of theirs. Nothing works for free in this world and certainly not Al-Qaeda. They need the finances to continue as any organization does. It costs money. Without it they have nothing. Most of their funds came through the Bin Laden family who have a great deal of wealth, need I say more?
Gotta' go for now. Keep it safe and happy hunting to you all. Do check out the latest copy of the X-Chronicles News Paper for the latest story on me and my books. They did one fine job on it.
And...if you, or your organization, want me to appear at your event to talk about the amazing world criminal justice, bounty hunting, and to autograph my latest book do contact me through my email address with your requests. I'd love to attend your event.
Until my next post here, Adios Amigos...All my best, Don
