If you're not a fan of Sheriff Joe Arpaio's school-patrol posse, then get a load of what Arpaio kiss-ass Steven Seagal thinks about you.

"Anybody who has criticized me or the sheriff for standing up to help the children, in my opinion, is an embarrassment to the human race," Seagal said this weekend during a simulated school shooting for the posse, according to an ABC News report.

Others may feel that someone with a lengthy history of publicity stunts is exploiting dead children by inviting the media and a pseudo-celebrity to a simulated school shooting.

"Instructors from the Sheriff's Office SWAT division as well as certified instructor/actor/posse volunteer Steven Segal will lead the all-day training exercises on various aspects on shooting scene management including room entry tactics and hand to hand tactics," Arpaio's press release on the matter said.

Based on Seagal's comment, and the face that "hand to hand tactics" taught by Steven Seagal will never, ever stop a school shooting (did we mention ever?), here's this morning's question: is Seagal a certified doofus?

Well I guess we know who the liberals are huh? Only a all knowing liberals could be capable of reading Steven Seagal's mind to know what motivated him to get involved during his spare time. We all know you far lefties have absolutely no problem dragging one of the only people in Hollywood who is actually getting involved (YES FREE OF CHARGE ON HIS OWN PERSONAL TIME) and trying to pass on the knowledge he's learned during his decades of combat training which involves disarming people of threat who are carrying a firearm. Its quite ironic for the writer chooses to make fun of Seagal by referring to him as a Doofus and claiming his hand to hand tactics " will never, ever stop a school shooting" while totally overlooking that you don't have to have a firearm to endanger children's lives. Its also important to acknowledge our countries best of the best Special Forces assault teams ALL LEARN HAND TO HAND COMBAT! I suppose that's probably a Doofus move too, what do those Special Forces guys know about combat anyways? I guess according to this writer since all our military fighters are armed with guns hand to hand combat is completely pointless to waste their time on. Yes this is what is wrong with America, although Seagal isn't the most likable guy, out of all the people in Hollywood who this guy could have made fun of or called out, he decided to choose the guy who puts his personal time aside for that small chance he might be able to help. YOUR THE ONE WHO IS PATHETIC MATHEW HENLEY! Why don't you do something heroic for this country instead of attempting to make those who are look like a fool!

Not a fan of Seagal's, who seems to live in his own private fantasy world. I was made aware of Seagal's film-purposed purchase of Terry Reed's book, "Compromised," which he reneged and denied all involvement though the family still has the check. I guess our egos are the downfall of all of us. Strange that he is into love and peace through firepower. Really, I thought he'd be teaching Tai-Chi on a beach in the South Pacific by now - the old fart.

That Mother fucker Hooker Beater Seagal looks like one of those alcoholics hobos with a bloated face due to too much alcohol drinking. If I seee him around any street looking like in that interview on TV, I'll assume that he is an alcoholic hobo.

NWAY, it was painfull to watch when those Posse Clowns were beign instructed on what to do during that mock school shooting, 'cause they just kept on looking at each other, as if they couldn't  comprehend what they were beign told to do. It looked worse when they were supposed to clear room by room, they seemed hesitant and trampling on each other while the Old Fart looked on, BTW, I think that I saw Jaffy pushing a shopping cart full of depends bags

The irony of all of this is that the local shurf is simply using a huge tragedy against humans for his own, narcissistic personal gain of public support and potential  votes. 

Mr. Cee Gal is simply an old actor who is looking for something to keep his image out in public so people might recognize him in the local grocery, asking for his autograph, or maybe a hooker will recognize him and service him pro bono (not an intended play on words). 

I can only imagine that other law enforcement agencies have taken steps to create training for a first responder response team to help with these potential criminal incidents, BUT, they don't make it known to the public AND they involve the academic educators and administrators as part of the TEAM before any training occurs. 

It's the motive we are questioning in this case. Not the process. Big difference.

Immigration enforcement is politically lacking these days and not getting the old guy(s) the votes, so he takes advantage of the horrific killing of many children to get his name and face on TV again.

The MCSO sheriff is mentally ill.

From the AZ Republic Article: "The fake ammunition rounds still contained projectiles, which injured at least two people when they ricocheted off surfaces. A posse member was nicked in the ear and taken to get first aid. Another man had a bloody gash on his forehead after he was struck by a ricocheting round." They can't even keep themselves from getting injured!!!

I saddens me that Liberals like Jen Imler, preach acceptance, tolerance, and value to all human beings and their personal believes, yet when someone disagree's with their beliefs they bring out the "Ass Hats^" BUHAHAHAHA! Liberals, Gotta Luv um....FAIL!

Jen Imler

As they are as well. Old dying ass hats. What a joke. It is fun to watch this type of person spin further into their alternate reality, clustering with those that parrot their own viewpoints back at them. It's been fun to watch, and gets better all the time :) I really hope that new social media for conservatives really takes off. The crazier they get, the easier for everyone else to put them up for viewing.

When will Bruce Willis be here to train the prune posse in his "Die Hard" tactics?  Who was the last actor to play "Superman".  He would be good as a trainer too, so the posse can learn to fly and not use taxpayer funded cars!

I loved how the Seagull claimed to have 100's of thousands of hours on the gun range.

That's over 50 years on the range with no sleep and no sex slaves!

....first of all Amy I have a Job, a degree, and a great life....(it's obvious that you don't know me, or you would never make a comment like that.), secondly, I personally know both parties featured in this post, I work in the "Industry", and once again the "New Times" and the majority of it's "Liberal Reject" readers have lashed out at Sheriff Joe or anyone that supports him, giving us readers yet another extremely biased article. In closing, I won't insult you Amy, after creeping your FB page all I can say is I feel sorry for you....All my Best.

so if 4-6 hours of training is enough to learn, perfect and commit to memory enough hand to hand skills to take out a armed gunman.......Chuck Norris, Steven Seagal, Bruce Lee, Jet Li and many others WASTED years of their lives. they could have taken a weekend course and then opened gyms.  why arent we teaching this to the military?

@jon.stokes21 lmao have you ever studied a martial art? It takes daily practice to make it effective, otherwise this is just for show. Also, i actually like Seagal, but the fact he did that raid a while back where they took a tank and bulldozed a wall with it leads me to believe hes now in the show business with arpaio. This isnt about dem or rep, its about logical and illogical. Im glad he wants to help, but ridding the Posse of those alleged to have committed crimes such as rape, child abuse, etc, and focusing on clearing cases should be the emphasis first...

"80 percent of all real cops are criminals and violate the laws while they are on duty and they are being paid to do so and be so. They are armed and dangerous and accuse you the citizens while getting off on crimes that they have committed that are far worse than yours, Sheriff Joe Arpaio lied under oath on that stand last year so what is hs still doing in office?

"He bought me off with a bribe".

@WhoKnows Scheduling managers know that each potential employee can work as many as 2080 hours per year without going into overtime and taking NO time off for sickness, vacation, etc. To accomplish 100,000 hours of range time would require 48.07692307 YEARS of continual range time. No vacation. No sick time. No holidays. Simply shooting at targets 8 hours a day, five days a week.

@Edward Anthony Green Didn't realize you were a stalker.  Careful, a stalking conviction would likely preclude you from serving in the well regulated militia that you believe in so strongly under the 2nd Amendment.

@WhoKnows @JohnQ.Public I doubt it. I've been told by sources close to the training, who asked not to be identified, that "adult combat undergarments, military grade with Kevlar lining" were issued prior to the training. Those items apparently self destruct after twelve continuous hours of usage and then burn to ashes. In some cases they have actually been used as 'flash bang' devices by the Posse Swat when taking down HOA criminals.

@WhoKnows if it took Steven 100's of hours to learn it, what makes him qualified to teach it in under 5 hours? (and those hours were to hone it, not to learn and perfect it)

danzigsdaddy
danzigsdaddy topcommenter

@WhoKnows oh! didnt catch that. that makes all the difference. yes, absolutely, you can teach a lifetime of something in under 5 hours to a person 

WhoKnows
WhoKnows topcommenter

@danzigsdaddy 100's of THOUSANDS of hours, was his claim.  Like 200,000 hours!  And there are only about 8700 hours in a year.


Each 100,000 would be 11.4 years -, 24 hours a day!
