A special panel of federal judges tentatively ruled Monday, Feb. 9, 2009, that California must release tens of thousands of inmates to relieve overcrowding. The judges said no other solution will improve conditions so poor that inmates die regularly of suicides or lack of proper care. (AP Photo/California Department of Corrections)

Get them in prison…

California Prisons

A 2008 report from the Heritage Foundation estimates that at the federal level alone, Congress has been adding about 55 new crimes to the federal criminal code each year since the 1980s. There are now about 4,500 separate federal crimes. And that doesn’t include federal regulations, which are increasingly being enforced with criminal, not administrative, penalties. It also doesn’t include the increasing leeway with which prosecutors can enforce broadly written federal conspiracy, racketeering, and money laundering laws.
In our continuing eagerness to purge American society of crime, we’ve allowed the government to make us all into criminals.
