21. I am going to asume they largely mean the

part where the article goes on to say

"The officers also may have crossed a fine line in undercover police work: They helped plan and manufacture devices often called "lock boxes" that allowed Occupy members to tie themselves together during a protest in Houston, according to interviews and court records. The use of the devices, which makes it harder for police to break up human chains, resulted in Houston police filing felony charges against seven protestors who had attempted to block a port entrance in Houston on Dec. 12."

Though I am not so sure how successful that will work out because wouldnt they have to prove that the officers enticed them to build the devices in the first place rather than just assisted them to build something they were already planning on and or were building already?
