Minority Report

Ok I just saw this movie for the first time and it was awesome but theres one thing I don’t get.

The old guy in the movie (I forget his name, the one that kills himself) is the one that sets up Tom Cruise right? What was the whole point of that anyway, how does it help the old guy? I understand why he kills that one person who starts questioning him, because he would have found out what really happened, but I don’t get the rest! I need some help :luigi:
