A phrase that is usually shouted when something bad happens to the individual shouting. Used when someone frames an individual for either something they did/did not do.
Does not have to be relevant to one person accusing another person, as it also can be used if a piece of machinery fails to work or a driver cuts off another driver to point out the ridiculousness of the situation.
Goes back to when racial profiling was popular by cops. Used by any black male/female who was arrested in an attempt to defeat the legal system.

Back in the days when the law was truly an ass, a witness was strong enough to cast judgement on any poor soul they wish to pass blame.

Taking desperate measures to either clear someones name or to pass blame on to another. Can also be used for those quick marriages some like to have that same day when only set eyes on someone.
