Sheriff Joe's Immigration Posse: The Incredible Hulk, Steven Seagul

Sheriff Joe's Immigration Posse: The Incredible Hulk, Steven Seagul

Associated Press

November 18, 2010

PHOENIX — People crossing the border illegally may be doing double takes, because a TV superhero is going to be on patrol.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio on Wednesday swore in 56 members of a new volunteer sheriff’s posse group that includes “The Incredible Hulk” star Lou Ferrigno.

The sheriff says action-film star Steven Seagal and actor Peter Lupus of TV’s “Mission: Impossible” fame also are members of the posse group, though they weren’t sworn in at Wednesday’s ceremony.

The new posse group will specialize in helping deputies crack down on illegal immigration.

The sheriff says the volunteers’ duties will include bringing arrestees to jail and handling demonstrators who interfere with immigration patrols.

Some of the nearly 3,000 people who were already part of Arpaio’s volunteer posse had played a support role in earlier immigration patrols.

    If I did not live so damned far away, I would be out there as a volunteer. I have over 38 years service and have been retired for over 13 years, but still dream about the job almost every night and wish I could start over. I could possibly transport friendly volunteers.

    Well I know that Chief Deputy Seagal is a real deal LEO for Jefferson Parish, La and has the training etc but Lou Ferrigno? Does he have anything to offer? Peter Lupus doesn't have anything to offer that I know of. Let's get some folks out there that can actually put a dent into this like Brother Seagal.
