Almost Everything Is A Crime In America Now: 14 Of The Most Ridiculous Things That Americans Are Being Arrested For

Doesn't it seem like almost everything is becoming a crime in America now?  Americans are being arrested and charged with crimes for doing things like leaving dog poop on the ground, opening up Christmas presents early, not recycling properly, farting in class and having brown lawns.  But is it healthy for our society for the police to be involved in such silly things?  Every single day the United States inches closer to becoming a totalitarian society.  While there are some that would welcome this shift, the truth is that throughout history the societies that have experienced the greatest economic prosperity have all had at least a certain level of freedom.  Business thrives when people feel free to live and work.  When a government tightens the grip too much many people just start shutting down.  Just look at places like North Korea.  Even though the rest of the world is sending them huge amounts of food starvation is still quite common in that totalitarian regime.  That is why it is so disturbing that it seems like almost everything has become a crime in America now.  As we continue to criminalize relatively normal behavior our slide toward becoming a totalitarian state will only accelerate.

We are throwing anyone and everyone in prison these days.  It is getting absolutely ridiculous.  Today, the United States leads the world in the number of prisoners and in the percentage of the population in prison.  The United States has 5% of the world's population, but approximately 25% of the world's incarcerated population.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics, as of the end of 2009 a total of 7,225,800 people were either on probation, in prison or on parole in America.

That is a sign of a very, very sick society.  Either we have a massive crime problem or the "control grid" that our leaders have erected for us is wildly out of control.

Or both.

But how in the world are we supposed to have a healthy economy if our entire nation is being turned into one gigantic prison?

Sadly, it is not just hardcore criminals that are being rounded up and abused by authorities these days.  The following are 14 of the most ridiculous things that Americans are being arrested for....

#1 A Michigan man has been charged with a felony and could face up to 5 years in prison for reading his wife's email.

#2 A 49-year-old Queens woman had bruises all over her body after she was handcuffed, arrested and brutally beaten by NYPD officers.  So what was her offense?  The officers thought that her little dog had left some poop that she didn't clean up.

#3 A 56-year-old woman who was once a rape victim refused to let airport security officials feel her breasts so she was thrown to the floor, put in handcuffs and arrested.

#4 In Milwaukee, one man was recently fined $500 for swearing on a public bus.

#5 Several years ago a 12-year-old boy in South Carolina was actually arrested by police for opening up a Christmas present early against his family's wishes.

#6 In some areas of the country, it is now a crime to not recycle properly.  For example, the city of Cleveland has announced plans to sort through trash cans to ensure that people are actually recycling according to city guidelines.

#7 A 12-year-old girl from Queens was arrested earlier this year and taken out of her school in handcuffs for writing “Lex was here. 2/1/10" and “I love my friends Abby and Faith" on her desk.

#8 Back in 2008, a 13-year-old boy in Florida was actually arrested by police for farting in class.

#9 The feds recently raided an Amish farmer at 5 AM in the morning because they claimed that he was was engaged in the interstate sale of raw milk in violation of federal law.

#10 A few years ago a 10-year-old girl was arrested and charged with a felony for bringing a small steak knife to school.  It turns out that all she wanted to do was to cut up her lunch so that she could eat it.

#11 On June 18th, two Christians decided that they would peacefully pass out copies of the gospel of John on a public sidewalk outside a public Islamic festival in Dearborn, Michigan and within three minutes 8 policemen surrounded them and placed them under arrest.

#12 A U.S. District Court judge slapped a 5oo dollar fine on Massachusetts fisherman Robert J. Eldridge for untangling a giant whale from his nets and setting it free.  So what was his crime?  Well, according to the court, Eldridge was supposed to call state authorities and wait for them do it.

#13 Once upon a time, a food fight in the cafeteria may have gotten you a detention.  Now it may get you locked up.  About a year ago, 25 students between the ages of 11 and 15 at a school in Chicago were taken into custody by police for being involved in a huge food fight in the school cafeteria.

#14 A few years ago a 70 year old grandmother was actually put in handcuffs and hauled off to jail for having a brown lawn.

Why in the world would anyone approve of the police arresting ordinary Americans for such things?

It seems like ever since 9/11 the whole country has gotten "security fever".

Suddenly we need to "get tough" on everyone.

Yes, crime is making a comeback, but once upon a time the police in this country were able to handle crime quite well and be courteous and helpful to ordinary citizens at the same time.

But today it seems like nearly every single encounter with police ends up being negative.

It does not have to be that way.

The rest of the world sees what is going on in this country and many of them are deciding that they simply do not want to spend their tourist dollars here anymore.  That is not a good thing for our economy.

As the government continues to get even bigger and exerts even more control over our lives, many of our own people are getting sick of it and are moving abroad.

America used to be the land of the free and the home of the brave.

That is no longer true.

Now we get thrown to the floor, handcuffed, beaten and arrested for things that we did not even know were crimes.

If America continues to move in this direction it is going to ruin our economy, our reputation in the world and our national spirit.

Unfortunately, history has shown us that once a free nation starts to lose that freedom it is hard to reverse that slide.  Perhaps we will be different.  Perhaps the American people will stand up and demand that we restore the principles of liberty and freedom that this country was founded on.

Do you think that will happen?  Feel free to leave a comment with your opinion....

    Number 11 is questionable to me because the people who were doing it weren’t just “handing out the gospels” they openly preached hatred and fear of Muslims; promoted Isamophobia and racism towards Arabs. IMO they were there to condemn Arab people as all being terrorists who refuse to convert to Christianity.

    What these ridiculous statutes (not “laws”) have in common is they are unconstitutional, for a variety of reasons that people aren’t taught to understand these days. It is is mistake to treat them as mere wrongheaded policies. They are that, but they are also constitutionally illegitimate, and we are not going to solve the problem unless or until we get back to strict constitutional compliance. That means people need to acquire a much deeper knowledge of the law, especially constitutional law, which is not what is being taught in law schools.

    Conspicuously absent from the above list: drug “crimes”. That’s a big and telling blind spot.

    Once we agreed that it was just fine to use government to use totalitarian methods – just for drugs – then there was no reason not to expand the totalitarian mandate.

    So, voila. That (a creeping totalitarian police state) is what you got, thanks largely to swallowing drug war propaganda. Marijuana “crimes” with no injured victims to complain should top that list, above. Whopping ugly blind spot.

    My 90 yo grandmother had a short barreled shotgun shoved into her face and forced to get on the ground while she screamed “I CANT I CANT”, when asked why, she said because “Im 90, I havent been able to in 20 years”. Why did this happen? Because a Drug Task Force in SW WA believed she was involved in selling marijuana (as a spiteful neighbor told them this to be true) . Believe me, Catholic school my entire life… she did not use or sell marijuana! No charges were filed.

    challenging constitutional tort, standing up to injustice, following your conscience is one thing. But evangelical zeal Muslim, christian or whatever shepherd one follows is quite another. Faith and spirituality is a personal and private matter. Get out of my face with your belief system.

  • Malcolm Wilson

    Odd how how the replies are not concerned with 3% of Americans being involved in the prison system at any one time – and this represents a far higher percentage of 17 to 30 year old males. Instead the replies pick holes in details (see referrals to #11) or just bang the drum about the constitution but so little concern about imprisoned people. The problem is the law and order voters who just want to tell others how to live; they get really angry with their neighbours about dog poop or sorting trash – and then hate it when they are told what colour to paint their house or what height their fence can be. The moral is ‘Do not vote for Law and Order politicians – ever’

    This is such a scary topic, I’m 29 and from Canada. It’s not just the U.S. that is in trouble., we sent far behind!

    My softball team got in major trouble a few years ago, when we had a couple of beer in the parking lot after a game on a hot summer evening. I’m talking about 1 case of beer for a whole team. We even invited the other team over.

    We were not getting drunk or causing a ruccas we sat in the back of 2 pick up trucks and watched the next game from a distance.

    The GOV is taking away our liberties 1 by 1 so that over the next 10 to 20 years we will be slaves to the mighty corperations.

    My generation is going to be in for a shock very shortly. This is a corrupt world we live in.

    Well the joke is on the police.

    They will be used in the prime of their life by the elite and then when they go to draw a pension it will have disappeared via Goldman-Sachs and the other banksters.

    Many police will end their days like the homeless military vets abused and beat down by new younger police who will be as deaf to their pleas for mercy as the police are today.

    And deep in their heart they will finally admit that they deserve it.

    It’s amazing the way people pick out #11 and fight over it. Islamophobia? Hello? That’s what happens when four of our large airliners are run into the WTC Towers, the Pentagon, and into the ground and we see Muslims in various nations dancing with joy. It’s what happens when this is followed up by a fight to establish a Mosque on ground zero. It’s what happens when 14 year old girls are sent to do a suicide bombing mission. It’s what happens when radical Muslims burn down between 500 and 600 churches in Indonesia, and Indonesia is one of the best, most kind and tolerant of the nations that are predominantly Islamic. In Saudi Arabia, a 15 year old girl could be sentenced to death for leading another girl to Christ. How much freedom do Christians have in atheist North Korea where people flee to China of all places to get away from religious persecution? And how tolerant was atheist Stalin of people of various religious persuasions? So you fire back the words, “Inquisition” and “Witch Burnings”. Inquisitions were Catholic and many of the victims were Christians of a different persuasion, some of which retaliated with violence while others were entirely peaceful, such as the Mennonites, the Amish, the Quakers who don’t even go to war let alone murder people. Yet about 170,000 Christians are martyred around the world each year, mostly in silence because few talk about it. How about Orissa, India where Hindus burned a village of Dalits or members of the untouchable caste for leaving Hinduism to become Christians? What was the reason for that? And why did the government turn their eyes away while the radical Hindus did this? You don’t usually find Hindus doing that. You don’t usually find most religions doing that. Do the Sikhs in the Punjab region go around butchering Christians for their faith? Do Bahais? Do Zoroastrians kill Christians? And yet you can pick up a Koran and read the very words of Mohammad where it says that a person who kills a person of the Book (a Jew, a Christian, or a Muslim) has no chance of going to heaven. So, then, why do Muslims kill Muslims, Christians, and Jews unless it is their intention to prove they regard their prophet to be a liar? What blasphemy of their own prophet could possibly exceed doing something their own prophet explicitly forbade? Hello? What appears to be the case is that those Muslims who people fear are not those who stay true to their religion, but rather those radicals who hypocritically call their own prophet a fake by going against his commands. But, then they pull out another verse that promises heaven to those who die as martyrs defending their religion from other religions. So, if that includes other religions such as different types of Muslims, Christians, and Jews, then you have to ask those murdering radical Muslims which time Mohammad was lying–when he said they would go to heaven for killing, or when he said they would go to hell for killing? If Mohammad was telling the truth in both verses, then this whole Jihad thing could not include killing Muslims, Christians or Jews, which means you’re better off abstaining from killing anyone at all ever just in case they happen to be one of the three peoples of the Book.

    So, Islamaphobia is not about fearing real Muslims, but those who believe Mohammad was lying when he said you could not go to heaven after killing a person of the Book. Those kinds of Muslims are terribly dangerous. The real ones aren’t.

    Unfortunately I feel as though this trend will continue until the American people start to fight back and I’m not really sure how long this will take.

    What did you expect ?Since 2001 America is becoming a police state not because of the new laws but because of the people’s silence to all the bullshit going on.And since the jail system has been privatised the companies runing it need more and more money.In the end isn’t it about money anyway in the US.Since WWII America has taken a very bad turn with this war monger mentality,it’s getting sicker day after day.The only hope people have is that they still have the right to posess weapons otherwise Big brother would have already enslaved half of the population.Wake up America the world needs you waking up.

    The American Jail Population is a source of very cheap labour for the American manufacturing industry, this is encouraged as a good way to try to compete with China. The American prison population is dominated by young black men and so you could say that a new form of slavery has emerged in the U.S. The problem is that the American media is very simplistic and often politically biased so that the average american doesn’t know or think about such issues. I agree that Americans need to wake up and look for inspiration in their original constitution. Obama is better than Bush so maybe there is hope for you.

  • Andy

    This article is right. I live in the UK and i refuse to travel to America now to go on holiday, my last experience since the 9/11 situation was ridiculous. My two year old daughter forced to have fingerprints and eye scans taken at the airport for f*cks sake! Since the attakcs its as though the whole of America has reacted like its the only country on earth thats ever suffered from terrorists attacks, well NEWSFLASH to you Yanks, we here in the UK have been dealing with bombs and attacks for decades with the IRA, and when they were supported by the Irish Americans and funded by them, what did you do when we asked you to help us stop them? you did nothing! So when the Tailban blew up the Twin Towers, as much as i was saddened for the loss to innocent life, part of me said ‘there you go..now you know what it feels like’
    Since then your security has gone way, way overboard, i simply wont travel to New York, Disney World or LA anymore on holiday and i know plenty of people here in Europe that feel the same way.
    Sad fact is, Americas dominance in the world is coming to an end, everything has its day and you’ve had yours, China will be the next world superpower, you’ve blown it.

    All of those silly laws are based in ignorance, fear, prejudice. No religion is better or worse than any other. Non of those laws are valid in any way. Laws are supposed to protect and defend the rights of the people, not punish them. The first rule should be, “Does this action harm me or others. If it does not, it should not be illegal.
    Gay marriage? doesn’t affect non gay marriage. It should be legal.
    Drug use? It mostly affects the user. The danger to society is that it is illegal, making it a profit center for drug pushers who are violent and run a business based on exploitation. Make drugs legal, and they will become less available. Right now your children can buy drugs on the street from strangers or from friends in school. It would be less likely if there were only one place to get drugs from government run facilities similar to liquor store where they would be sold only to adults who possess a special card showing they are drug addicts. The drugs would be cheap and safe. Drug dealers on the street, and the cartels that smuggle them would disappear. After all, who would risk arrest to buy unsafe and expensive smuggled drugs and risk arrest when safe cheap and legal drugs could be purchased from the government?

    Anyway, I have no hate or distrust against Americans. What I do hate is your Government with their big secrets, and your proclivity for constantly moving closer to a police state.
    Some of the laws you have are completely outrageous as proven by some of the incidences posted on this page.
    If you want to regain your freedom you need to stop moving in you current direction. Turn around and start heading back toward your roots before its too late. Or maybe it is too late already.

    “Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words
    will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning, and
    for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is,
    there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn’t there?
    Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression. And where once you
    had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now
    have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and
    soliciting your submission. How did this happen? Who’s to blame? Well
    certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be
    held accountable, but again truth be told, if you’re looking for the
    guilty, you need only look into a mirror. I know why you did it. I know
    you were afraid. Who wouldn’t be? War, terror, disease. There were a
