Dog the Bounty Hunter’s #1 Tip If You Witness a Crime

Have you ever witnessed a crime and wondered what to do? You may want to find a way to help or intervene. Or you may want to look the other way. Well Dog the Bounty Hunter has his #1 piece of advice for what to do.

Hit record.

"You're not Dog the Bounty Hunter. ... Do not try to grab him yourself. Don't do that. You've got to record it," Dog told Dr. Oz, explaining that so many recent crimes have been reported and solved because of bystanders using their phones to document the incident.

If there's a car involved in the crime, make sure to record the license plate, which police can use later to track down the culprit.

And of course, remember the obvious last step that can easily be forgotten in the heat of the moment.

"You need to whip out your phone really quick and record. Then of course, hit save. Don't be like, 'I got it,' then boom, it disappears," Dog said.

Exactly How to De-Escalate Aggression From a Stranger

Follow security Expert Bill Staton's important advice to keep yourself safe.

Have you ever had a tense interaction with a stranger in public? Perhaps your shopping carts accidentally knocked into each other or there was a misunderstanding in communication and the other person gets angry. You may wonder how you can de-escalate the aggression and exit the situation safely. So security expert Bill Stanton has your go-to advice for staying alert and protecting yourself in the face of verbal aggression and physical attacks.


Bill Stanton: "It always starts with something small, like someone being too close to you, or even more common, you get bumped by a shopping cart. You want to look at their eyes first -it may reveal emotional changes. But you can't rely on just that. Look at what their trunk is doing; a person's torso will reveal their intent. Body language like raising hands, heightened expression, tense shoulders — these are natural responses to a person who is feeling threatened and will escalate. They may begin to zero in on the space between you and them, and their voice will get louder and louder. You want to read this before it gets further and becomes explosive."
