Framed!

Instapundit cites a story from the Chicago Tribune about a man who was framed by FBI agents for kidnapping and murder. He served 14 years for the kidnapping, and was sentenced to death for the murder. Glenn notes that the FBI stands by its men, and fears that this represents a systemic problem at the Bureau.
(1) it's appalling that someone would introduce such dubious evidence; and (2) this sort of thing needs to be punished so that it doesn't happen again. No doubt the agents would claim that the defendant is really guilty, and that the evidence is "fake but accurate," but that doesn't wash.
Indeed it doesn't. What Is To Be Done about it? Deuteronomy 19:19 provides one answer.
