Cuoco was a formidable man, born in a time were men made their own laws as they went along. He was not used to being bullied, he was rather the bullee and he oftentimes looked down on people, maybe mostly because of his size. He had subordinates and superiours as anyone would, especially in the line of business he was affiliated with. Maybe he couldn’t be blamed as a stupid man but he made one big mistake. One need not such labels as good or evil, he was just doing what he could to move up the ladder. When the ruling is the law of the jungle the meek get very little, but the foolhardy get nothing.
