This is awful! We will NOT be watching the next episode of Steven Seagal: Lawman.
Joe Arpaio, the Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona, has been fighting against cockfighting in his home state, and recently he brought Steven Seagal along with him to help with his mission…and of course to provide material for the show.
Here's how things went down with Arpaio's most recent bust on a suspected cockfighter, according to a report:
"[In] a massive show of force…the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office executed a search warrant and arrested the homeowner, Jesus Llovera, on charges of suspected cockfighting."
Apparently, Arpaio and Seagal utilized "armored vehicles" and "a tank," and they also brought with them "dozens of SWAT members in full gear…and a bomb robot."
Here's what Llovera's neighbor Debra Ross had to say about it:
"When the tank came in and pushed the wall over and you see what's in there, and all it is, is a bunch of chickens."
Here's more about the incident from a report:
"Thousands of dollars in damages were made to the property and 115 birds were euthanized on the spot."
What's the point in stopping cockfighters if you're going to kill chickens in the process???
This is so upsetting and ridiculous…we can barely even believe it's true!
