    Talk about a crazy ride along!

    Glendale shooting leads to fatal incident with officer

    Good grief. Okay, looks like two bad guys meet a third bad guy coming out of a bar and have a shootout. BG #1 gets on his motorcycle and speeds away, but gets stopped by a police sergeant about, oh, 3 miles away. He gets off of his bike and starts shooting at the sergeant, WHO HAD A CIVILIAN RIDE ALONG WITH HER!

    Holy moley, that would have been a BAAAAAAAAD ride along to be on, let me tell you!

    Kudos to the sergeant for keeping her head and aiming true. Glad she and her ride along got home safe.

    So I wonder if the female observer was considering a career in law enforcement, and if she is still.

    It happens....... Not long after I moved here we had one where it took the medical examiners office to determine if it was the officer or the ride along who actually put the BG down!

    When you ask to go on a ride along you are wanting to know what it is like to be LEO. Guess she got her wish!

    Something tells me no.

    I read a story a while back of a wife doing a ride along when her husband/LEO was murdered during a field interview. The perp shot him while standing on a porch in full view of the wife. Sad.

    IIRC VA Trooper recruits are required to do ride alongs before attending the academy as a way to wash out those with different expectations of what the job is like.

    The ride along found out what a police shooting is like, but that is not everyday law enforcement.

    Years ago we did some ride alongs and just about every time the passenger ended up writing a report on something LOL.............. don't ask me how I know.......
    It's not the destination, it's the journey.
