No good deed goes unpunished. Is that old exhortation at all believable? It became true for J.D. Mize. An impulsive chivalrous act---which Mize later regretted many times over---ultimately resulted in deadly consequences. Released from prison, Mize was determined to lead an honest and productive life. But certain individuals have other plans for him---including the police. The authorities have decided that Mize has violated his parole restrictions and should be returned to prison. His options have narrowed down to a hopeless end: Will he spend the rest of his life behind bars. Or even more likely, will he be killed?
