I doubt there was any government thought given to suppressing an 'up and comer' with a new automotive moonshot. I think the sting was some drug enforcement stooges performing a dumb "War on Drugs" enforcement exercise as directed by their bureaucrat bosses intent on making a name for themselves. John was just someone with a good and well known name that could make headlines; he got sloppy from being pushed to his physical limits. No one in the DEA cared about John as a person or the consequences of their deceptions. It's easy to fall into the trap because the perps work hard to disguise the warning signs. Government types live in a world of deception and trickery and have no respect for the blood sweat and tears expended to actually build something. John was a straight up guy trying to do great things. He was quite vulnerable as he was not a bad guy and didn't think like the bad guys. Damn Shame and so pointless. Maybe we should form a class action suit and sue the bloody government for what it did to dent all our dreams (not to mention killing John). Nothing good was accomplished at the time and here we are today still struggling with the consequences of a failed government sting operation.
