n.— «Torack was arrested by an off-duty police officer who was working as a security guard for the scrap metal yard. Torack suggested it was an example of “free-casing.” The term borrows from the drug vernacular—freebasing—and refers to the police manufacturing a case against a person.» —“Suspect in theft of scrap metal is left singing Workhouse blues” by Bill McClellan St. Louis Post-Dispatch (Missouri) Nov. 1, 2006.
