    Let's play a game. Let's say you've done something wrong and will therefore be punished. Here's your punishment: You must retire from your job. You will receive a full pension. Your days will be free for whatever your heart desires. Hey, stop smiling. You're being punished! In the real world, of course, retirement is generally seen as a good thing, especially if the retiree will be financially comfortable. But when a cop misbehaves, retirement is treated like the guillotine. Consider the plea deal for Schenectady Detective John Hotaling. His road-rage charges will be essentially dropped if he trades his badge...

Chris and Carla Snyder spoke to Channel 11 News after a hearing on Wednesday, in which all charges against Subhash Modhwadia, of Scott Township, were held for court. "It was a weird situation. Everything happened so fast," Chris Snyder said. With an Indian interpreter on video, Carla Snyder testified that when she turned into a BP gas station on Banksville Road, Modhwadia blocked her sports utility vehicle and accused her of cutting him off.

    For many residents of New York City, our bodies are our cars. So rather than engaging in "road rage" against slow or erratic drivers on a highway, New Yorkers descend into "sidewalk rage," paroxysms of fury directed at people who exhibit irrational, obstructive walking behavior on Manhattan's crowded concrete. But is this reaction a sign of mental illness - or could it perhaps reflect an evolutionary adaptation that may have enabled the development of cooperation? (More on Five Ways to Stop Stressing) I will admit personally to fits of pique when slow tourists fail to keep to the right,...

    We have all read about road rage in big metropolitan cities like like LA, NY, and Chicago, where some nut has gotten fed up with the traffic, so he goes berserk and either does damage to other vehicles, or pulls out a gun to shoot those whom he perceives as the problem. But have you ever seen a dog commit road rage?    Well in this video you will see a dog in a man's way on a road, but instead of moving out of the way, the dog decided to tear off the man's license plate from his car....
