Overcriminalization: Are We A Nation of Criminals?

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.
