The focus on TV soap operas has given way to an incredible tale of alleged intrigue, deceit and frame-ups
, lighting up the dark recesses of corruption in the police, the judiciary and public administration.
Green told Sheridan, who is now representing himself in court after sacking his lawyers: "For you to turn round and accuse me of monstrous frame-ups
- it is shameful, Tommy, it is shameful.
Moreover, LA residents--the jury pool in other words--were perhaps more aware than the rest of the nation of the LAPD's history of flagrant frame-ups
, particularly racialized ones.
Los Angeles' ongoing police scandal continues to grow: As many as 70 officers are now under investigation for their possible roles in an ugly web of shootings, beatings, drug-dealing, frame-ups
, perjury, and corruption.
The 33-year-old man arrested Thursday had some 700 pamphlets saying that crimes AUM is accused of are frame-ups
by the media, the police said.
In a movie-mad society, where some of the most popular screenplays revolve around frame-ups
and insider dealings, accepting that real life often isn't like that is hard to swallow.
This splendid evasion is an apt figure for all the frame-ups
foiled in Darktown Strutters.
More often than not, judges see through the frame-ups
and acquit the defendants.
