"Are you sure this is his house? It looks different at night." the driver said.
"Damn right, I'm sure." The passenger laid the rifle barrel on the edge of the window.

"We wait until the bastard walks in front of that window." The passenger shifted in the seat to get a clear field of fire right at the window. "Then...boom. One dead cop."
A silhouette grew larger as it moved closer to the window.
The barrel of the rifle rose off the edge. "Get ready," the passenger said, easing the finger inside the trigger guard and onto the trigger.

"Come closer, Scarsdale. That's it. C'mon. A little more."

I watched him pass through the door toward the courtroom. His head hung down, and his shoulders slumped as he stuffed his hands into his pants' pockets. He shuffled his gait. His steps seemed weak and tottering like those of a condemned man. In my mind, he already was one. But if the system didn't work this time, if the jury let him go, I'd kill him myself. Just like I had killed Doyle Burton.
