Felony

From Conservapedia

Jump to: navigation, search

A felony is crime considered serious, generally punishable in the United States by one year or more in prison or (rarely) by death. Murder, for instance, is a felony.

Each year new laws invent many new crimes as felonies, even though for thousands of years they were not even considered to be criminal. For example, in some cases draining water from your property without a government permit or removing asbestos from your property without government authorization may be a felony. Such "crimes," which affect nobody but the property owner, have only under recent, liberal administrations become the government's business.
