Was Hinrichs Hoping for Arrest at the Feed Store?

Think about it: Hinrichs wore a vest with pockets obviously full and with a wire visible as he is in a feed store in Oklahoma asking about buying a substance that everybody in the state knows was used to blow up the Murrah Building in 1995?

Maybe Hinrichs wasn't simply acting thoughtlessly. Could he have been trying to make himself such an obvious threat that he would be arrested and thus prevented from doing something he was being blackmailed into doing, namely blowing up himself and a bunch of OU football fans? Maybe he was protecting his family from threatened retaliation, which is a tactic characteristic of terrorist outfits in Iraq and elsewhere.

Far-fetched maybe but not so much that it isn't possible, given the evidence discovered so far.
