Like most decent, normal, caring people, it was with horror and disgust that I read about the demented, sick, monstrous idiot with a badge and gun who is accused of cutting the throat of a dog for no reason ( "Officer charged with killing dog set out to 'gut' it, witnesses said," June 19). How can the city let this dangerous, inhumane, disgusting criminal out "on his own recognizance?" Surely Baltimore will get rid of this monster and not allow him to sully the police uniform he wears.

Victoria F. "Vickie" Gelfman, a prosecutor in the Howard County state's attorney's office whose blog posts about her struggle with acute myeloid leukemia served as an inspiration to others, died Friday of the disease at Johns Hopkins Hospital. The Ellicott City resident was 31. "Vickie was such a shining star. She was very gifted, talented and had a warm spirit," said Howard County District Judge Pamila J. Brown. "She had a wonderful spirit and a pleasant demeanor. And as a prosecutor, she represented the state so well.

By now, you might have heard Ben Roethlisberger plays pretty well against the Baltimore Ravens. The Steelers have won seven games in a row in the contentious series with Big Ben at quarterback, including postseason wins last season and in 2008. They'll try to make it eight Sunday afternoon in Baltimore. You probably also know some of Roethlisberger's signature moments against the Ravens. His five first-half touchdown passes and perfect 158.3 passer rating at Heinz Field in 2007.

If you want to check the speed at which young girls are growing up, you can subscribe to Seventeen, which is actually read by 11-year-olds, or Cosmopolitan, the Bible of 16-year-olds.

Some of the images of Baltimore Detective Troy L. Chesley Sr. that flashed on screens above the pulpit made people laugh. In one, he is bare-chested, belly out and wearing white swim trunks. Another shows him as a boy, with a silly grin and eyes as big as grapes. Others shown at his funeral yesterday revealed his serious side. Posing for a portrait as a young police officer, he looked straight into the camera with a stony expression. Later, he stood with chin up, leaning against a patrol car with other members of the Western District.

An Ellicott City man who ran unsuccessfully for the Howard County Board of Education three times was sentenced Monday in federal court for impersonating a Secret Service agent in what lawyers on both sides agreed was a "sad" case. Robert D. Ballinger II, 47, who pleaded guilty to one criminal offense in September, was ordered to serve two years of probation and 200 hours of community service after making an emotional appeal to U.S. District Judge Richard D. Bennett. "I've made a big mistake in my life," said Ballinger, a former spokesman for the Maryland Department of the Environment who ran for school board in 2004, 2010 and 2012, advancing to the general election on his last two runs.

To become a barber in Maryland, you need to have completed 1,200 hours of classroom instruction or 2,250 hours as an apprentice. The state requires licensed foresters to have a four-year college degree in forestry, two years of experience and five references. You even need to pass an exam to work as an interior designer. But all it takes to be given the power to detain people, search them and even arrest them is to fill out a two-page form. No training required, and for all intents and purposes, no oversight.

What would you do if, while sitting behind the wheel of your car at a traffic light, you see a man with a handgun in a shoulder holster approach your vehicle, pound his fist against the driver-side window and release a profane tirade? Would you: a. Lower the window and fire back some expletives; b. Look for an emergency route through the busy intersection in front of you; c. Remain calm and ignore the man until he goes away; d. Call the cops as soon as possible? When this happened to him in Harford County last week, Francesco Grasso chose "c" and "d. " Dr. Grasso is a surgeon with a practice in Baltimore, Towson and Bel Air. He was shaken enough by this display of road rage to contact me and to submit his account as a cautionary tale for other drivers.

It's no secret that Police Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld IIIis a frequent diner at Miss Shirley's, a breakfast, brunch and lunch spot with locations in Roland Park and at the Inner Harbor. He's partial to the omelet margharita. So it should be no surprise that the soon-to-be retiring chief headed for the Pratt Street bistro Wednesday morning to catch a quick breakfast. There, according to a police source, he stumbled on two city officers drinking alcohol. They had just come off the midnight shift and were off duty, but were either dressed in partial uniform or had their guns and badges displayed, said the police source and another person affiliated with law enforcement who is familiar with the incident.

Lion Brothers is outsourcing again. Unpaid child laborers will design one of the Owings Mills company's newest embroidered emblems. That's a good thing, in this case. If the factory of the future is about fast turnarounds on custom orders produced close to the customer, Lion Brothers' new Girl Scout badge is a small but telling indicator that U.S. manufacturers might have a place in the global economy after all. President Barack Obama's blueprint for reviving American factories should help retain and perhaps create manufacturing jobs at the margins.

Walter Oliver joined the Police Explorers youth volunteer program presumably because he had an interest in becoming an officer one day. But along the way, authorities in two jurisdictions say, he began stealing equipment from officers who took him under their wing. According to charging documents, he broke into Officer Joseph Tracy's locker and took a police radio; he took an expandable baton and a wooden espantoon from Officer Charles Connolly; when Officer Karen Crisafulli wasn't looking, he took her badge; and while on a ride-along with Officer Robert Hankard, Oliver took his Taser.
