Now authorities are investigating whether a slow-burning desire for revenge that began with an arrest a decade ago was behind last month's death of Herbert Proffitt, 82, who was gunned down in his driveway while he went to fetch the mail.
Charles Hammer, 81, is accused of killing the former police chief and sheriff, who arrested him in 2002 on charges of harassment, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

Scumbag I hope they execute the SOB. Some people just don't belong on this planet. Now they will throw him in jail until he dies of natural causes if the community is lucky. When will the atmosphere in this country change when it comes to dirtbags like him.
