Congressman Pushes Mandatory Ridealongs For U.S. Lawmakers

Many U.S. lawmakers are wildly out of touch what it's like to be an average America, let alone what it takes to serve in the Military or as a First Responder. One such lawmaker hopes to give his peers a new appreciation for Police work by mandating annual ridealongs for every member of the U.S. Congress.

U.S. Rep. Bill Johnson (R-Georgia) has introduced a resolution to make this law.

"Having the opportunity to witness first-hand the challenges that law enforcement encounters every day is a vital step toward bridging the divide between supporters of those in the blue uniform and the ‘Defund the Police’ movement,"

U.S. Rep. Bill Johnson

Rep. Johnson's intent is certainly a good one. However, it assumes that fellow lawmakers are anti-Police out of ignorance. Unfortunately, this is likely not the case. These politicians know how important Law Enforcement is to a civil society.

In fact, they openly call for more Police to protect the capital and other places where they work. Each of these lawmakers is protected by a taxpayer funded Police or private security detail. They know how important the Police are. They just have an agenda that requires the breaking down of local Law Enforcement agencies around the country.

What is this agenda? Without delving into conspiracy theories, it's hard to know. Some believe that their goal is to set up a Federal Police Department to take over once local agencies are no longer able to control the chaos. Others believe the chaos is intended to tear America down so that a new order can be established.

Whatever the reason, this bill would likely not convince leftist lawmakers to abandon their radical stance. However, we applaud Rep. Johnson for attempting to make a difference.

What do you think, does the left have an agenda wrapped up in the anti-Police rhetoric? Do they really think that removing support for Law Enforcement is a good thing, or is it a move to tear the system down? Let us know in the comments below.

    1. Agree, Patricia!! Whoever, in their INSANE MIND(S) thought up "DEFUNDING THE POLICE" are SO out there!!!!!! WHO are they going to call when they're being attacked, robbed, even murdered???!!! My brother was a Maryland State Trooper, First Class, for over 12 years. If anyone "wants" an account of the daily/evening activity, you cannot believe what things my brother has told me over the years!!!

      1. If one can afford private security it doesn't affect ones own safety as much as regular Joe? Follow the money

      2. Anyone who's been a 1st responder can! Today's news carries a story of an encounter the results of which were all too familiar to me: truck driver "debated" the right of way on tracks with train; truck driver lost... That was kind of "normal"... "Stupid human tricks" are as varied as humans are...

        1. Thank you, Sandra! The police are up against so MUCH!! They DO NOT get paid enough for putting their lives on the line day and night! Sure, they signed up - but what in the world would we do without them and All First Responders??

          1. I know. I worked with several different departments as an EMS 1st responder, as well as several fire departments. I learned a lot about both in those yrs. The job I did was tough enough; I really wouldn't want theirs'!

    1. Amen, Nicolas!!! I watch Discovery Investigation ID. Love the Body Cam episodes especially. They just actually show us on actual video of what goes on in their jobs... Thank you, Nicolas!!!

  1. There's no doubt it's to establish their very own gestapo to rule and to put the constitution aside.

    1. "Ugly Nancy" is creating a new Secret Police Nationally by using the very corrupt "Capital Police", and are setting up offices all over our nation. Tampa,Fl. is one of the first.Remember, Nazis, and Communist are both only slightly different versions of socialism,and used these same tactics to suppress a populace. Our 2-A is the only thing standing between our American Constitutional Republic, and world tyranny!

      1. You are So Correct, Florida Boy!!! You have very obviously seen through All of the BULLSHIT being spread around!!! Thank you so much for your post!!!

    2. Not as a rule. Seems like those who are, or want to be, criminals, with impunity, who believe that, in most cases.

  2. Great idea -- make sure that the moron cortez is sent with an officer into a domestic dispute and let her lead the way --HAHAHAHA .

    1. That's almost sadistic... But it MIGHT get her attention, when all parties turn on her....

      1. No offense, Sandra. It's Not sadistic at all. She and the rest of them NEED to experience Real life and ride along with the officers... NOW!!!!!!!!!!!

        1. I've been to a few domestics. Also, I said "almost"; I meant for the cops stuck with her.

    2. Love it, Gerry!!! Really Great point!!!!! Thank you for your post!!! It Needs to be carried out!!!! NOW!!!!!

  3. NWO,(New World Order),as stated in their doctrine they made public, wants & needs the Worlds population to decrease by half its size.Using any divisive means at their disposal to accomplish this feat on Worlds masses, i.e. white vs black, religion vs religion, political party vs political party, etc. End Game is to more easily control Worlds population & One Party Rule over Earth. You know, like Pinky and the Brain cartoons , visions of grandeur.

    1. FAR more than 1/2; the agenda calls for 300-500 Million people, no more, total living on Earth! There are now between 7 1/2 & 8 Billion people! Do your math again...

    2. Drelleshak, Great, Great point!!!!!! You are obviously "in the know"... Thank you so much for your great post!!!

  4. The left won’t go for this it would require them to face the truth and as you know they can’t handle the truth we’re considered domestic terrorists according to the leftist disgraced fbi that’s reality but good luck with trying! Let’s Go Brandon!

    1. Patriot, you are so correct! The Democ-rats CANNOT HANDLE THE TRUTH BECAUSE THEY ARE TO BUSY BEING THE LYING LIARS WHO TELL NOTHING BUT LIES AND THEN THEY'VE TOLD THEM SO MUCH, THEY BELIEVE THEIR OWN LIES!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you so much for your great post!!

    1. THEY ALL LIVE IN GATED COMMUNITIES, HAVE PRIVATE SECURITY. THAT TAX PAYERS PAY FOR. DEMAND OUR POLICE DEPT GET THE RECOURCES THEY NEED. THEY ARE MORE IMPORTANT THEN ALL THESE CORRUPT POLITICIANS WHO NEVER DO A LICK OF WORK.

      1. Hi, Emma! You are So Correct!!! Great, great post!! They don't do a lick of work because they're too busy trying to take over this country!! They do NOT care about True Americans!
        They only care about money, power, control and ruining this country with their communist BULLSHIT!!!! Thank you for such a great post!!!

    2. God Bless you, CPO Bill!!! YES!!! Defunding the Police is the MOST insane, criminal, mentally ill statement that has ever come out in a while! Thank you for such a great post!!

  5. What a great idea! Mandate it be accomplished before swearing in for office & have legitimate proof of having done so in their personnel file: a signed affidavit at least, by the officer & shift supervisor, with "selfie", including all 3.

  6. I have an idea, how about anyone in congress who thinks it’s a good idea to defund the police must pay out of their own pocket for personal security and it is not tax deductible as a business expense. Thanks for standing up for Americans rep Johnson.

    1. Jane, hi... You have such a Great idea! And it Needs to be put in action - NOW!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you for your really great post!!!!

  7. I’ve said this all along. Every elected official should be required to ride at least 16 hours in a patrol car riding on the afternoon or midnight shift. That way they can see exactly what goes on on the streets.!!

  8. That is a great step in the right direction. They should also be mandated to spend a week in a design branch/project management for their states DOT. To get an idea of the stupidity of the laws they create and how much money is wasted on compliance with those laws.

    1. Hey, Vance ~ GREAT point!!! It should be put into action - mandated NOW!!!! Thank you for such a Great post, Vance!!!

  9. ride with a cop and the lawmakers will see the whole truth about how the law officers work.

    1. Hey, Robert ~ GREAT, Great point!!! It needs to be mandated into law - NOW!!!!!!!!! Thank you for such a great post!!!

  10. STOP MAKING MORE LAWS; all your doing is taking more of our freedom. Just step up and say to all those people including the ones that are sleeping. It is NOW Required to ride-alone to better understand what you're voting against or for.... It's not an opposition, it's required.....

    1. Hi, Marie ~ You are so right on!!! It needs to be mandated into law - NOW!!!!! Thank you for such a Great post!!!!

  11. I TOTALLY AGREE with the lawmaker's bill to mandate ride alongs with the police!! Then, this BULLSHIT about defunding would Very Surely and Most Soon be redacted!!!!!!!!!!
