Steven Seagal Makes Cameo During Joe Arpaio's Raid of Southwest Phoenix

seagalface.jpg
Did you get arrested by Steven Seagal last weekend?
The last time Under Siege star Steven Seagal was in town, the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office took some heat when it used a tank to apprehend a suspected cockfighter. The criticism went further when allegations surfaced that Seagal murdered a puppy.

The allegations that Seagal killed a puppy haven't been proven, but you'd think that when someone brings the type of shit-storm Seagal's brought to the MCSO, Sheriff Joe Arpaio might think twice before allowing him to tag along when he raises hell in the Valley.

You'd think wrong.

On Thursday, Arpaio kicked off his 20th "crime suppression sweep"/illegal immigrant roundup in southwest Phoenix. Not only was Seagal apparently involved, the sheriff's ghost "tweeters" are bragging about Seagal's participation on Twitter.

"My Crime Suppression Operation will be have southwest Phoenix UNDER SIEGE tonight with posse man/action star Steven Seagal participating," Arpaio's ghost-tweeters chirped on the sheriff's Twitter page.

The MCSO didn't immediately get back to us when asked what Seagal's involvement was, but we'll assume he wasn't cruising around in an MCSO tank or killing puppies -- although, we could be wrong.

As for the results of Arpaio's raid on southwest Phoenix, which, according to the sheriff, cost "hardly nothin'," Sprong says 92 arrests were made in 18 hours. Of the 92 arrested, 23 were determined to be illegal immigrants. The remainder of the arrests were for things like drug possession, human smuggling, and DUI -- no "major criminals" the sheriff says he's tired of hearing about when criticized for his over-the-top raids. More on that here.

According to Sprong, the sheriff was "pleased with the results" of the raid and is planning another one sometime in the near future.

This is unconstitutional at its best. A vote for Arpaio is a vote for an ill minded and morally vapid individual.

Steven Seagal  makes good movies . I am to lazy  to read about his police work.

I think he is even more famous in  Asia then here in the USA

But then again he refuses to go to Scottsdale and do his "crime suppressions" where business owners actually asked him to show up, I guess he's afraid to have a stand off with the police chief there!

Good point, but as Mike Stauffer says, the shurf needs to pay attention to his area of jurisdiction... which doesn't include those areas that have their own law enforcement.... what the shurf SHOULD be doing is concentrating on serving the taxpayers of Maricopa County... and not worrying about attracting presidential candidates.

I wish he would have driven the tank and tried to recruit Sex Salves.  That's the Seagal that Arpaio loves!

The elderly guy is an elected official. The other guy is a washed out actor. No cops involved with these two.

The crowd that did lunch at D+D should do it again the day Arpaio takes the sand in the Thomas disbarment!  Someplace close to the court house so we can be there!

these raids that " cost hardly  nothing " this statement   out of the mouth of  Maricopa`s own ILLITERATE  SHERIFF...........WHERE ARE THE FIGURES ON PAPER AS TO WHAT THESE RAIDS ARE COSTING THE TAXPAYERS ........... nothing is cost free.....when personal and equipment are diverted from another intended use  to fuel a  person with a Napoleon complex `s ego ......the taxpayers are taking it on the chin ......ARPAIO ........  when are you going to start working on the 30 or40,000 or so OUTSTANDING WARRENTS .......  AFTER ALL THAT IS REALLY YOUR JOB .......

Sounds like a Nazi round up of "the usual suspects".   Oh, such a beautiful police state we live in.     Most people will argue that we are not losing our rights.    They are quiet because they don't want to draw attention to themselves.   Being meek will bring you the loss of all your rights and shows that you don't deserve to live in a free nation.   And why is Seagal running aeound with cops?     He's not a cop anymore, anywhere as far as I know.    Hell, let me drive the damn tank.    At least I live here.

How can you complain about losing rights when we are SO MUCH SAFER without those pesky rights getting in the way.

"My Crime Suppression Operation will be have southwest Phoenix UNDER SIEGE tonight with posse man/action star Steven Seagal participating," LOL...in other words, lots of cameras and a few has been actors (Arpaio, Segal)...VERY LITTLE law enforcement.

You're slipping Joe, only a 25% suspected illegal arrest rate.  That's down quite a bit from prior rates of 50-80%, what's up with that!!!  Oh well, as long as you got your mug on TV that was all that was really important, right?!!!
