A ride along with South Kingstown's finest

October 28, 2010

SOUTH KINGSTOWN - We were sitting in a police car speeding down Route 138 along Kingstown Road with no one to stop us. We drove 80 miles per hour, trying to catch up to those who thought they could be faster. It was the first time I sat in a cop car. However, I didn't break the law and wasn't guilty.
