She said that people think they are jailed because they are poor and not because they broke the law and it might result in her husband getting killed.

Chapman explained that he would like to remain in the law enforcement. He said that he hoped that his work as a bounty hunter had benefited people and make them happy.

He said that he would want to continue to do something for the law enforcement and was thankful that his wife survived.
