I worked on a bounty hunting team back in the 80s, and it's not as "cool" as TV makes it out to be. Once in a while you're snagging a real violent asshat so you get a huge adrenaline rush and then a feeling of accomplishment when you're done. It sometimes even feels good if they "fall down" on the way to the car or something, depending on what their original crime was.
More often than not you're busting some guy/girl who didn't really do anything that dramatic to begin with though, and you're doing it in front of a distraught family member or a passle of freaked out kids. That's emotionally taxing to the extreme and it's very hard to feel like the good person in that situation. Well, it was for me anyway. Some of the people in the business were so caught up in personal power trips that it didn't seem to bother them.
