    My uncle is a local officer. I need to talk to him about doing a ride-a-long, I've been talking about and wanting to go on one with him ever since I knew what one was, lol.

    Glad to hear you had a good time. I assume I wouldn't be able to carry my 'little buddy'.

    Wich makes me wonder, if SHTF and I assist the officer I'm riding with, can there be legal ramifications against me?

    Sure. There are always legal ramifications for every action that you take...even for the officer.
    With that being said, many states have laws that cover citizens assisting LEO's and acting under their direction.

    Since all of the states are different, you need to find out exactly how your state covers it.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Sounds like a good time. I think I'll have to try to do one sometime.

    I just did one with my local (Bloomington) PD. Had a decent time. Our calls ranged from report of a stolen wallet, a bar fight, report of a man with an assault rifle at the State Farm corporate headquarters (false alarm; turned out to be a dude with a breaker bar. We talked to the complainant and saw the survelance footage; I'd have probably thought the same), report of a stabbing (also a false call), and a fight at the local walmart. It was good stuff. Mind you, this was second shift on a thursday. The FTO I was with let me step out on all the calls except the State Farm incident, for obvious reasons. I am also a hiring candidate with BPD, so that may have helped things along as far as me getting to step out with the officer.

    Gives you a whole new perspective on just how stupid and sleazy some folks can be.

    I went on 4 ride a longs last summer and it was a blast. Got to ride with the Worcester County Sheriffs Dept, Ocean City Police Dept x2, and the Maryland State Police in about a weeks time. There was never a dull moment and one call with the state police had us pushing a good 130mph across the county to a shots fired call. Going to try and ride again when I go back to Maryland in a few weeks.
