Editor's note: This article has been updated from an earlier version Criminal trials typically end once the jury returns its verdict. The attorneys move on to their next cases, unless appeal is pursued, and the debate ends. Unfortunately, that has not been the case after the recent trial of State v. Joseph Walker in Anne Arundel County. An Anne Arundel County grand jury indicted the defendant in this case for murder and other offenses after a Maryland State Police investigation revealed strong evidence that the defendant shot and killed an unarmed man during a road rage incident.

Summer vacations can be like overly long parties - fun for the invited but not always for neighbors and other bystanders. That has always been the challenge for those who live year-round in popular vacation destinations - tourists can simultaneously be loved and loathed. This conflict appears to be at the heart of a proposal scheduled to be heard Tuesday night by the Ocean City Planning and Zoning Commission to limit short-term rentals in some of the town's most prestigious addresses.

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia - As Colin Powell traverses the Middle East on a last-ditch mission to head off the apocalypse, it's frightening to see how divorced U.S. policy is from reality on the ground. The Bush administration wants moderate Arab allies to pressure Yasser Arafat to crush militants. It would even like Arab leaders to negotiate in Mr. Arafat's stead. But spend a few days in the Saudi capital, and speak with pro-American Saudi businessmen and professionals, and you'll see how badly the Bush approach is failing.

Baltimore County police say a Randallstown man turned himself in on Jan. 3 and a second man was arrested over the weekend - both in connection with a road rage incident that occurred in November in Owings Mills. On Nov. 23, four men drove to a home in the Owings Mills area and fought with a woman and her two sons in relationship to a road rage incident. The woman and her sons were injured, and were treated and released from Northwest Hospital. Police identified three of the suspects using the description of their vehicle and obtained arrest warrants.  Investigators are still working to identify the fourth suspect, police said.

Sorry, Dan Rodricks , but I feel no sympathy whatsoever for your so-called "victim," Francesco Grasso, who state police say was observed to be driving like a nut endangering others. Should the retired officer have gotten out of his car? No. But maybe the good doctor will start driving more cautiously and not endanger the lives of others and turning them into victims of his own carelessness and reckless driving. He is only a victim of his own actions. John Sinclair

IN A STUDY on women and road rage, my colleague and I found that women who have high levels of home responsibilities and low levels of home rewards were more likely to drive aggressively. To be honest, I don't really have a problem with road rage. I have found some coping strategies that work for me (I eat a bagel and drink good coffee while I commute). Lately, however, I have been struggling with something I can only call "mom rage." Before I note the consequences of my mom rage, let me tell you where it comes from.

Los Angeles -- The "angry white male" is someone we've been hearing a lot about since the November election. He's become shorthand for explaining the sweeping conservative victory.Unfortunately, like so many cultural phenomena, he's gone straight to the status of icon without much explanation of who or what he is. Until tonight, that is.Dr. Eddie "Fitz" Fitzgerald, the troubled forensic psychologist played by Robbie Coltrane in "Cracker," returns in a bril- liant exploration of white working-class rage and murder, titled "To Be Somebody," at 9 tonight on the Arts & Entertainment cable channel.

Whether hard-rock music causes violence became a national issue again after the rioting at the close of Woodstock '99 in August. Rage Against the Machine, a band that boasts revolutionary messages as well as high decibels, was blamed -- along with other heavily amped bands such as Korn and Limp Bizkit -- for helping to incite the crowd.It's a notion that Rage guitarist Tom Morello, 35, finds ridiculous."There was a horrific youth-bashing that went on in the wake of Woodstock," Morello says.

I am disgusted by the not guilty verdict rendered in the case of New Jersey detective Joseph Walker, who shot and killed Joseph Harvey Jr. last year ( "N.J. officer not guilty of murder in Arundel road rage shooting," July 30). Clearly, Maryland law was not adhered to in this case. Mr. Walker is a detective in New Jersey. He was in Maryland attending a relative's birthday party with his family, so clearly he was not here on official business. Why was he carrying his gun? He was out of his jurisdiction and off-duty.

A case focusing national attention on the use of deadly force by off-duty law enforcement ended Wednesday when a New Jersey detective was acquitted of murder in a fatal roadside shooting last year along Route 3 in Millersville. It took an Anne Arundel County Circuit Court jury about six hours to find Joseph Lamont Walker not guilty on charges of first- and second-degree murder, voluntary manslaughter and handgun violations in the death in June 2013 of Lansdowne resident Joseph Dale Harvey Jr. "The jury was able to see this for what it was — a father who was forced to defend his family, including his wife and his children, who were under attack on the side of the road," said defense attorney Charles N. Curlett Jr. "The prosecution's theory of the case that this was an act of murder ... is simply wrong.

When a New Jersey police officer goes on trial Monday in Annapolis in the killing of a Lansdowne man during a road rage incident, he won't face the first-degree murder charge alone. Joseph Lamont Walker, 41, will have a defense team that includes a high-powered New York attorney behind him, as well as a long blue line of fellow officers, police fraternal organizations and union officials. Facts of the June 2013 case are undisputed: Walker shot and killed Joseph Dale Harvey Jr. along Route 3 near Millersville after the two pulled their vehicles over following an angry exchange.

Where most bands fit neatly into a single style, Rage Against the Machine crosses boundaries at will. Listen to the band's self-titled debut, and "Bullet in the Head" will have you thinking that the Rage's primary influence was hip-hop; flip over to "Bombtrack," and they sound like a funky metal band; jump over to "Fistful of Steel," and what you'll hear sounds more like industrial music than anything else.
