Set up, like a bowling pin

Fascinating: I'm not as up on Bay Area political scene history as I probably should be, but activist Richard Aoki, who provided guns to the Black Panther Party, was an FBI informant. Then, as now, we're seeing that it's a fine line between investigating a group and providing them with the means of doing violence (and in many modern cases, urging them to that violence), before arresting them.

There is no line between investigation (instigation) and the promulgation of violence. NYPD has yet to obtain a lead in terrorism, never mind an arrest, with all the spying it has done, and the untold billions wasted.
