Joe Arpaio’s Vigilantes Get Training and Photo Op-ed with Has Been Snow Bird Actor Steven Seagal

Steven Seagal - Vigilante Trainer

Has been third rate actor Steven Seagal, who got immunity in 2003 to testify against members of the Brooklyn and Staten Island Mob regarding mob questionable funding of some of his early films, seems suitable material to do a NRA modern equivalent exercise of the Nuclear Age’s “Duck and Cover” to be taught in our modern day schools on Joe Arpaio’s Turf in the rich suburb of Phoenix, Fountain Hills Arizona.

FOUNTAIN HILLS, Arizona (Reuters) - Action film star Steven Seagal, who racks up big body counts in his on-screen battles with bad guys, took on a new role on Saturday, training posse volunteers for controversial Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio in how to use guns to protect schools in shooting incidents.

Arpaio, who styles himself as "America's Toughest Sheriff," enlisted Seagal to train his Maricopa County posse members at a school in Fountain Hills, a (a very rich) suburb northeast of Phoenix, with children used as stand-ins for scared students.

Seagal, a burly martial arts expert turned actor, guided 48 volunteers through various aspects of responding to a shooting, including room-to-room searches, and critiqued their work.
"I am here to try to teach the posse firearms and martial arts to try to help them learn how to respond quicker and help protect our children," Seagal said.

…About a dozen people protested the event.   
"No gun should ever be in a school," said protester Cynthia Wharton, a Fountain Hills resident.   
Arpaio's 3,450-strong posse of unpaid men and women has for years helped the sheriff target drunken drivers and illegal immigrants, and chase down fathers who are behind on child support.   
Last year, Arpaio sent posse members to Hawaii to investigate the authenticity of Obama's birth certificate at the request of local Tea Party activists, a key Arpaio constituency.   
A sometime resident of the Phoenix Valley and member of Arpaio's posse, Seagal, 60, starred in big-budget films in the 1980s and early 1990s…
