Any of these people like Shaq, Steven Siegal, etc. are always going to be accompanied by vets.
I understand what you are saying. But those police officers I've known over the years have all emphasized the importance of field training
which is not available through Lone Star. Foreshortened programs like Lone Star's can get graduates that choose a lesser screened security guard-like position in trouble very quickly with their limited training.
