Reflection, reckoning, awakening

The man thinks only of his daughter as the jury foreman reads the decision.  He already knows the verdict.  The prosecution had bungled their case, and now his girl’s killer is going to walk free because of it.

He retrieves the small doll from his pocket.  The strange woman that had sold it to him had assured him that it would work.  He had believed her.

He grabs the doll’s head and pulls it free from the body.  There are screams throughout the courtroom as the defendant’s blood erupts from the hole where his own head once was.
