That was something different...

In the BBS days, they had cops go undercover on BBSes to find pirate software, and illegal porn.

They would then do a sting, seize all equipment and assets and shutdown the BBS.

In those days, they were actually looking for laws being broken, at least... Though I am not defending them.
