Overcriminalization is a dangerous trend that should alarm
everyone. With over 4,450 crimes scattered throughout
the federal code, and hundreds of thousands more hidden in federal regulations,
“doing the right thing” just isn’t enough to keep you on the right side of the
law. Every day people can become
overcriminalization victims in a heartbeat and the consequences can be devastating. Watch the video below to learn more about the
problem of overcriminalization and the path for reform.
