It wasn’t laborious to really feel sympathetic towards Trevor, who had the very best of intentions when he dragged the FBI brokers into his life-threatening state of affairs.
That was solely honest after Trevor’s father, Vince, thrust his son into his self-created hazard, exposing the unsuspecting Trevor to a bullet-filled automotive chase.
All Trevor knew was that males had been taking pictures at his father, and the injured Vince insisted that Trevor seize a bag full of fentanyl from his automotive simply earlier than he handed out at a close-by hospital.
It wasn’t clear how conscious Trevor was of Vince’s sketchy previous. However Vince driving round with a duffle full of medicine definitely was purpose sufficient for Trevor to take it to the closest law-enforcement division.
Granted, bringing a suspicious-looking bag into the FBI workplaces wasn’t probably the most well-reasoned alternative. However Trevor was reacting after a really traumatic occasion. Additionally, taking that a lot fentanyl off the road would by no means be a foul thought.
Frankly, contemplating what Trevor had been by way of over the previous hour, he dealt with having all these weapons pointed at him fairly nicely. His maturity degree was why he may roll with what was to return throughout this case.
That, and Scola provided Trevor a much-needed clear begin for him and his father if Trevor may get details about the place the fentanyl got here from out of Vince.
Sadly, regardless of Trevor’s composition, Vince’s pure state was paranoia, and he would not admit to something. Nevertheless, he ultimately let slip the title of the provider from whom he had gotten the fentanyl.
As soon as the brokers discovered extra about Chao, it grew to become obvious that Vince was silly ever to assume that he may steal from him and get away with it. Trevor will need to have gotten his intelligence from his mom since all Vince needed to provide was some animal crafty.
