In the current polarizing time, the Federal Government should not be adding more tinder to the tinder box, let alone setting the box ablaze.
If any civilian coordinated and coaxed other civilians into commission of a crime, they’d be tried as part of a criminal conspiracy. When the Federal Government does it, the best-case scenario is the rogue agents involved get a slap on the wrist. However, these weren’t rogue agents!
Entrapment should not just be a defense used in court after months of one’s life and thousands of dollars in legal fees are wasted. Federal agents that engaged in the activity, and potentially any of their supervisors aware of it or who ordered it, should be found criminally liable.
Citizens should not be on the defense against their own governments. We should not be labeled extremists for having opinions nor manipulated into action by agencies that manufacture crimes to justify their budgets.
