I'm not talking about ransoming people back to their families.I'm a former bounty-hunter. I'm talking about checking to see if there are governments that would pay to have these people in custody.
That's actually a pretty fair idea, once you get used to the odd distinction.
How is the distinction odd?
It's not okay for us to sell a guy back to the people who love him, but it's just fine for us to sell him to a body politic that wants to incarcerate him or execute him?
Bounty-hunting is like that.
