Bradley Thomas is a man with a temper.
We know this before we see it, because when Bradley gets his walking papers from his job running a wrecker for an auto mechanic, the boss waits for him apprehensively outside to deliver the news. Employees stand a cautious distance away, eyeing him warily and anticipating a reaction. None comes.
Because Bradley is also a man of principle and loyalty. He’s the type who adheres to a code that he knows and others understand, even if they aren’t explicitly privy to the details. His code involves treating other well who treat you well, and those who don’t… Well, to hell with them.
