Concepts and Definitions
- In the US, a frame-up (frameup) or setup is the act of framing someone, that is, providing false evidence or false testimony in order to falsely prove someone guilty of a crime.
- Frameups are often part of conspiracy theories.
- For instance, there were frameup accusations in the anthrax incident involving the United States Postal Service.
- A frameup where a police officer shoots an unarmed suspect and then places a weapon near the body is a form of police misconduct known as a "throw down" used to justify the shooting.
