"The Average American Commits Three Felonies a Day"



This is an excellent book I heartily recommend. Here is the description, from Amazon dot com...


"The average professional in this country wakes up in the morning, goes to work, comes home, eats dinner, and then goes to sleep, unaware that he or she has likely committed several federal crimes that day. Why? The answer lies in the very nature of modern federal criminal laws, which have exploded in number but also become impossibly broad and vague. In Three Felonies a Day, Harvey A. Silverglate reveals how federal criminal laws have become dangerously disconnected from the English common law tradition and how prosecutors can pin arguable federal crimes on any one of us, for even the most seemingly innocuous behavior. The volume of federal crimes in recent decades has increased well beyond the statute books and into the morass of the Code of Federal Regulations, handing federal prosecutors an additional trove of vague and exceedingly complex and technical prohibitions to stick on their hapless targets. The dangers spelled out in Three Felonies a Day do not apply solely to “white collar criminals,” state and local politicians, and professionals. No social class or profession is safe from this troubling form of social control by the executive branch, and nothing less than the integrity of our constitutional democracy hangs in the balance."

It's no wonder this country has so many people locked up!

That's why they want a police state, so they can watch everyone 24/7 so they can arrest anyone at any time.

If that's the case, can you imagine how many politicians and cops break per day?

What are you talking about. They don't break any laws. They are here to protect and serve us. You are disillusion.

From their own congressional report...

The CIA was committing at least 100,000+ SERIOUS crimes every year in many countries around the world.

When I was a kid we had to commit ten felonies on the way to school walking through 4 feet of snow backwards and uphill against the wind.

Its pretty sad. No one has any respect for the law anymore because no one knows what they are. The illegal Mexicans don't care about the law. Wall Street Bankers laugh at the law. Government workers don't pay taxes but will jump on a regular peon in a heart beat if they don't pay. Even the cops are totally out of control and don't follow the law. Is it no wonder this country is going down the drain? If the law makers themselves don't follow the law then why should anyone else?

aynrand "There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws"

Re: The average American commits three felonies a day...
It would have been nice if the author had given us a few samples of the innocent felonies we commit each. The one danger of these kinds of articles is that it makes some think that everyone commits crimes, so what's the difference if they go out and commit a few more (knowingly)?
