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.

The guilty verdict against one of two brothers accused of beating a Northwest Baltimore teen cuts through the conflicting accounts of what happened on Fallstaff Road nearly 18 months ago and arrives at an essential truth: When Eliyahu Werdesheim stepped out of his car and confronted Corey Ausby, he stopped being a volunteer on neighborhood patrol and became a vigilante. No matter whose account of the incident you believe, it is clear that he overstepped his bounds. Neighborhood patrols serve a valuable purpose, and Shomrim, the organization to which Eliyahu Werdesheim belonged at the time, has long been lauded for its efforts in Northwest Baltimore.
