Joe Arpaio Not Done Exploiting Newtown Tragedy; Steven Seagal to Lead More "Training"

Steven Seagal, MCSO school-shooting consultant.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio's still not giving up on his months-long exploitation of the school-shooting tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut.

Arpaio's office announced another super-serious training session for the school-patrol posse, led by the MCSO's apparent school-shooting consultant, actor Steven Seagal.

Last time this happened, Seagal supposedly led "all-day training exercises on various aspects on shooting scene management including room entry tactics and hand to hand tactics," as if Seagal's ninja kicks and neck-snappings are going to stop a madman from shooting children.



This latest stunt will be at the MCSO's training grounds, instead of an actual school and includes a media session that's just three hours long.

Below, read part of Arpaio's press release, with the shameless tie-in to the massacre of schoolchildren:

Since the Sandy Hook disaster, the Sheriff's Office has made three separate arrests of student suspects in three different schools for threats to fellow students, including two involving weapons, during a six week period. On December 20, 2012, Arpaio announced the arrest of a 16-year-old female student at Red Mountain High School in Mesa after uncovering a plot to gun down schoolmates and then kill herself. On January 23, 2013, a fifth-grade student at Frank Elementary in Guadalupe was arrested for making threats to stab another student and was found to have a knife in his backpack while on school grounds. On February 6, 2013, a 16-yr-old male student was arrested by Sheriff's Deputies for carrying a loaded weapon on a school bus and campus and for allegedly making threats against a fellow student at Dysart High School in Youngtown.

"This training is essential for the posse protection plan that will involve schools throughout the county," said Sheriff Arpaio. "As previous arrests in school related threats show, the safety of our school children is not to be taken lightly or with inadequate measures."

This past February a vacated and non-use school in Fountain Hills served as the working backdrop for the first time simulation paces of the School Protection Posse. Sheriff Arpaio developed the posse to act as a deterrent to potential threats to school children, teachers and administrators in the wake of the mass shooting in Newtown, Conn., which tragically took the lives of many young students and adults in Sandy Hook Elementary in early December 2012.

Arpaio's media opportunity/training session will take place on Saturday.

Irony and sarcasm doesn't work in Arizona. Yes, majority of our voters will never spot anything remotely funny in a 3 hour media session led by a long-has-been actor and promoted by a famous media whore. As opposed to actual training. And it's not like the authors of the comments above even read the article. That's why Arpaio will be re-elected till he dies.

you know....for an actor, Seagal sure has a lot of free time to play cop, and for a cop......Arpaio sure has a lot of free time to play actor. seems like neither one of them is very good at their jobs either.

Why is it that the Joker likes to hang out with known kiddie dibblers?  There is Seagull as well as the WND lawyer that is trying to stop his recall.  Maybe that's why he chose to ignore the kiddie diddlers in El Mirage. They were the Joker's buddies.

Great, they should train for stuff like this, that is their job after all, and I'm sure every other LEA in the country is doing similar training.  However, how many of them are putting out press releases and holding press conferences to tell people they are doing their job?  How many are giving a 3 hour media briefing?  Probably not too many as they have work to do.  To that extent, I guess it's a good thing we're paying for a healthy fucking media relations department at MCSO.  God knows we wouldn't want to trade a few of Joe's press people for real deputies who might actually respond to such an incident instead of kissing his ass over lunch.

Oh, and by the way, why doesn't MCSO - one of the largest Sheriff's offices in the country - have their own people who can provide this sort of training?  Pretty sad that one of the largest Sheriff's offices in the country has to bring in a grossly obese has been D actor for "training".

MCSO blather. The old man needs some attention and all the recent trials and the Boston bombings have taken away from his exposure. 

He's a sad excuse for a human being.

How about if the Joker and the broken Seagull use Don Shooter as the actual "madman in a school" for this training?


Is it true that all sidewalks will be removed from the site of the training to keep the Joker and the Prune Posse from any potential hazards they might really experience?

On the up side, atleast the Hollywood Actor Steven Segal  is only pretending to "Train" dumb Asses at the M.C.S.O. not "Real Law Enforcement".

I almost bet that our "Real Law Enforcement" has there own Highly Qualified Trainers/Procedures.

This is just more of the M.C.S.O. "Media Whore". Publicity Stunt's.

Hooray for Seagal and hooray for Arpaio ! This is indeed another stupid police story from the leftwing boobs at New Times. Mike Lacey, we are glad you're stinky leftwing butt is no longer a presence in the San Francisco media. Brugmann ruining you here was the only good thing that fatass has done in his whole miserable life.

@WhoKnows LIBEL n. to publish in print (including pictures), writing or broadcast through radio, television or film, an untruth about another which will do harm to that person or his/her reputation, by tending to bring the target into ridicule, hatred, scorn or contempt of others. Libel is the written or broadcast form of defamation, distinguished from slander, which is oral defamation. It is a tort (civil wrong) making the person or entity (like a newspaper, magazine or political organization) open to a lawsuit for damages by the person who can prove the statement about him/her was a lie. Publication need only be to one person, but it must be a statement which claims to be fact and is not clearly identified as an opinion.

Your remarks reference seagal are false and libelous.  Your lack of integrity is astonishing.

@RobAZ It is a sad day when all law enforcement agencies cannot obtain the highly qualified, skilled and personable Steven Seagull for their training needs.  Only our Shurf has the cojones that the Seagull respects enough to offer friendship and expertise.

I wonder whose PR team is responsible for this story?  Both of these worn out wannabes need some positive hugs. But, the Seagull is accused of some sexual dalliances in Florida.  The Shurf doesn't investigate sexual crimes.  I think it must be a shared expense, which is a savings for the taxpayers

@JoeArpaioFan LMAO exposing it? here we go again with you using words you dont know...and yes, he is exploiting it. Just another media circus stunt to help him with his recall. And as Danzig asked, what happened to your little plan of intimidation? chicken shit...

@JoeArpaioFan  exposing it???? what the hell are you talking about? exposing it how? like you are doing with your little Joe Arpaio mash note pages? i thought you were going to be exposing the people who sign the petition on your little psycho-babble page? whats the matter? you should have over 200,000 names by now Robert. or are you just issuing meaningless threats? your threats are just like Arpaio's promises to uphold the law........just a bunch of neck talking bull shit with no weight or substance.

@red.marcy.rand lol guess you arent aware of the history between MCSO and New Times..why not read up on when arpaio hired his and Thomas's buddy Wilencheck to invade the privacy of millions of Americans by illegally obtaining their IP addresses and reading habits..and in true fascist form, MCSO swept them up and arrested them in the middle of the night..why do you hate the Constitution so much? PS you dont live here, so stay the FUCK out of our business! just like you babies cry and bitch and moan about CA Dems, im sick of the fucking loons thinking this is a save haven for them!

@yourproductsucks @WhoKnows Talk to the Sheriff in L.A. that booted Seagull from his group because he was suspected of sex trafficking.  

That's how Seagull ended up trying to film is "reality show" with the Clown of the County here!

YPssy.  You are really a laugh!  And SOOOOOO uninformed!

Thats why Segal and Arpaio get a long so well. One is a sexual predator and the other doesn't investigate sexual crimes.

A match made in heaven.

@danzigsdaddy;

In Arpaio's Fox News "Fear Monger Interveiw" regarding the Boston Bombing, Arpaio rambled of "Drug Cartels", and claimed "That he had recieved five threats to his life by cartels, one as recently as the week before."

Was Arpaio saying that the Flagstaff Scary Box was sent to him by Cartels?!

I hadn't heard that they found out who done it?

So apperantly Arpaio just Lied out his Mouth again!

Arpaio lying is so common neither we or he even notice it any more.

P.S. Hey Arpaio the ones you profile as Meskins in Flagstsff live in Hogans, and could care less about you.

@WhoKnows @yourproductsucks granted, Seagal was never accused of crimes with kids..but, the attorney filing the suit to have the recall dismissed is another story.

@WhoKnows @yourproductsucks

Your inability to make a credible argument must be frustrating. You have yet to provide a shred of evidence supporting your libelous statement while at the same time you have proven you are acting with the intention to harm another person's character by making false accusations on a public forum. 

yourproductsucks
yourproductsucks

@WhoKnows @yourproductsucks Your circular reasoning is doing nothing to support your initial claim that seagal is a pedophile.

Woman is defined as follows- An ADULT human female.  Do you know the difference between an adult and a child or do I need to continue?

yourproductsucks
yourproductsucks

@WhoKnows The person making the allegations you are referencing was a 23 year old woman named Kayden Nguyen.  She was the alleged victim.  No criminal charges were ever filed and the lawsuit was voluntarily dismissed  by the complainant three months later. 

To be frank, I believe her.  It still doesn't make seagal a pedophile nor does it give you the latitude to make false accusations simply because you don't like or agree with him.

yourproductsucks
yourproductsucks

@WhoKnows Actually, it was La (Louisiana) Jefferson Parish to be exact.  The allegation did not involve children.  Seagal is an asshole, but there is not a shred of evidence out there that supports your statement that he is a "kiddie dibbler".
