What is happening to the family unit in the States........

Lawyer: Chapman's son sold N-word tape

HONOLULU - Television bounty hunter Duane "Dog" Chapman's son taped a private phone conversation in which the reality star used a racial slur repeatedly, then sold it to a tabloid for "a lot of money," Chapman's lawyer said Thursday.

"I guess because of whatever level of anger he had of his father, he felt the need to express it in that manner," attorney Brook Hart told The Associated Press.

Tucker Chapman could not be reached for comment; no one answered the telephone at a Honolulu number listed under his name.

The National Enquirer on Wednesday posted on its Web site a clip of a conversation in which Duane Chapman, star of the hit A&E series "Dog the Bounty Hunter," repeatedly used the N-word in reference to Tucker's girlfriend.

Chapman later apologized to his son and the woman, then learned about how the tape got into the tabloid's hands, Hart said.

A&E has suspended production of the series, saying the network takes the matter seriously.

"When the inquiry is concluded, we will take appropriate action," A&E spokesman Michael Feeney said in a statement Thursday.

The show, in its fifth season and one of A&E's top-rated programs, has not been canceled.

An after-hours telephone message for David Perel, the Enquirer's editor in chief, was not immediately returned. But earlier in the day, Perel declined to say how the tape was obtained, saying what mattered was what's on the tape.

In the conversation, Chapman urges Tucker to break up with his girlfriend. He also expresses concern about the girlfriend trying to tape and go public about the TV star's use of the N-word.

Chapman has said he was "disappointed in his choice of a friend, not due to her race, but her character. However, I should have never used that term." He also said he was ashamed of himself and pledged to make amends.

Hart said his client is not a racist and vowed never to use the word again.

"I have never seen anything that suggests he judges people by the color of their skin or racial background or anything but on their character," he said. "Duane lost his composure and made very, very inappropriate remarks, for which he truly regrets."

The TV series follows Chapman and his tattooed crew as they track down bail jumpers in Hawaii and other states. The show also stars some members of Chapman's family, but Tucker Chapman is not regularly featured.

The Honolulu-based bounty hunter first grabbed headlines for apprehending serial rapist and Max Factor heir Andrew Luster in Mexico in 2003.

^^^^^Moral values in this society as a whole have become garbage. I wonder why? Is it TV? It is the lack of God/religion in this Godless society? Is it because there are no longer any Christian values left or any other religious values left in our society? Is it because everyone has decided to interpret God's laws to suit them and tweaking the laws to suit themselves?

It’s called “free will”. Without it there can’t be faith.

As for family values?? Those have been under attack by government education and the mass media for many years. This is only the beginning...

I thought you knew -- it's all because of 7 year olds wearing baggy pants.

Shall we compare the US with the Islamic enlightent of the People living in Darfur who have fled their homes and villages in terror to camps within the country, or in the neighbouring countries of Chad and Central African Republic, which are increasingly affected by the fighting.
Two thirds of the approximately two million people in Darfur who have been forced to leave their homes are women and children. Many of them are suffering from malnutrition and struggling to survive with little access to clean water or basic healthcare.
In eastern Chad, repeated attacks on villages have forced approximately 150,000 Chadians to flee their homes. Chad is also hosting around 250,000 refugees from Darfur.
Grouped together in camps, children and their families are living in basic shelters and lack food, water and access to medical care.
cock suckers
