Steven Seagal Trains Arizonans to Protect Schools from Shooting Incident|
Controversial sheriff Joe Arpaio enlisted the combat services of action star Steven Seagal to train volunteers as part of a plan using armed guards to protect schools against shooting incidents.
During the training at a school in Fountain Hills, Arpaio’s staff members reportedly planned to run practice drills with fake gunmen while Seagal guided 48 volunteers in hand-to-hand defense tactics through different techniques.
According to Reuters, Seagal said, "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.”
Arpaio's 3,450-strong posse of unpaid men and women have helped the authorities undertake crime for years. Some members of this posse are qualified to carry the same guns as sheriff's deputies, and can use them under life-and-death situations. His tough position on crime and illegal immigration has made him well-known across America.
Seagal served as a deputy for the Jefferson Parish sheriff in Louisiana, as covered in his reality show Steven Seagal: Lawman.
