They laughed at Roberto Valdez and then ignored him. But when a dark-skinned man was holed up in a shack with a gun, they sent the part-time town constable to deal with the problem-and made sure he had no choice but to gun the fugitive down. Trouble was, Valdez killed an innocent man. And when he asked for justice-and some money for the dead man''s woman-they beat Valdez and tied him to a cross. They were still laughing when Valdez came back. And then they began to die.
