A jury acquitted one man and prosecutors dropped charges against another in the 2010 murder of a 73-year-old Hampden cab driver who was beaten to death with a tire iron, the State's Attorney's Office confirmed. Mark Cheshire, a spokesman for city prosecutors, confirmed that a jury had acquitted Gary Latham, 29, on all charges, and based on that prosecutors dropped charges against a second man, Bobby Wisner, 31.  Additional information was not immediately available Tuesday evening.  When police charged Wisner, they wrote in charging documents that 73-year-old John Sandy had identified his attacker as "Bobby,"  who he said was the brother of a man who lived with him. He slipped into a coma, but eventually woke up and identified Wisner from a photo lineup.

How do you react when someone cuts you off in traffic or commits some other act of motoring rudeness? Give him a blast from your horn? Maybe roll down the window and thrust a finger toward the sky? Pull up next to him and glare or even shout an obscenity?Ah, those were the good old days, when civilized people could have an occasional uncivilized outburst without having it escalate into hand-to-hand combat or worse.Now most of us know better. A beep of the horn, giving the bird, or even a shout can be the modern equivalent of the glove-in-the-face challenge to a duel to the death.
