They tried to do it to a family member

The cop busted the 18 year old kid for a tiny amount of pot, then, instead of arresting him, he called the kid daily for two weeks, threatening him with prison, to get him to snitch on a dealer. The kid had never dealt with a dealer, so he didn't know anything, but that didn't matter...the cop wanted to use him as bait in a set up anyway.

The kid, seeing no way out, nearly committed suicide.

After two weeks, the kid broke down and told his father, who immediately got a lawyer, and stopped the calls. In the end, at great expense, the kid escaped mostly unscathed, thanks to some quick thinking by the father.
