When an enforcer for a bookie pushes a "mouse" of a man too hard, he winds up needing an ambulance. Kojak doesn't believe the eyewitness description of the assailant. How could such a small man have done the deed? He (Abernathy) was furious because a surgeon who "killed" his mother with an unnecessary surgery was pressuring him for money the doctor needed to pay his bookie; the enforcer was part of the pressure. When Kojak learns the circumstances, he arrests Abernathy (but omits Miranda warnings, warrants, and other civil protections); in interrogation Kojak sees the mouse turn into a MAN. Justice is served.Written by
Poor Ben Piazza, a nebbish of a man who is trying to stand up for himself against
some heavy odds. Dr, Peter Brandon gave his mother unnecessary surgery which
she died from. He's refused to allow her insurance company to pay the bill and he won't pay the deductible.
Brandon has a nasty gambling habit and he's in deep to bookie Michael Witney.
Witney made Brandon loan of Lincoln Kilpatrick his enforcer.
This was a case of the worm really turning. Little Piazza wrestles Kilpatrick's
walking stick from him and administers the severe beating he was going to get.
That's got Kilpatrick in the hospital and Brandon wanting his money and Witney
looking to reestablish his reputation as a tough guy you don't mess with.
Without an official complaint for a bit Telly Savalas and the squad still check
When the dust settles some real justice is handed out here to the ones that
deserve it. That's because justice in the form of Theo Kojak isn't blind in any
