From the annals of “what the hell is wrong with this country,” fascist Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio is bringing in Steven Seagal — yes, that Steven Seagall — to train his “volunteer posse” in how to handle a school shooting incident. Jesus, I wish I was making this up.
Steven Seagal, 60, star of “Above the Law” and “Under Siege,” will lead members of the Arizona sheriff’s volunteer posse through a simulated school shooting today.
The volunteer posse, which is nearly 3,500-strong, has been used to patrol shopping malls during the holiday season and scope out undocumented immigrants, and now Arpaio plans to have them patrol areas surrounding schools in Arizona’s most populous county, Maricopa, which includes Phoenix.“Volunteers will learn operating procedures on how to handle one, two and three shooter scenarios as well as room entry tactics and hand to hand combat,” the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.
As Jamie Kilstein said on Twitter, “I hope Steven Seagal isn’t going to teach Arizona cops how to run as well.” But I hope he does. Because there is nothing on earth funnier than Steven Seagall running. Absolutely nothing.
