In a book called Three Felonies A Day, Boston civil rights lawyer Harvey Silverglate says that everyone in the US commits felonies everyday and if the government takes a dislike to you for any reason, they'll dig in and find a felony you're guilty of.

Three Felonies a Day is the story of how citizens from all walks of life"doctors, accountants, businessmen, political activists, and others"have found themselves the targets of federal prosecutions, despite sensibly believing that they did nothing wrong, broke no laws, and harmed not a single person. From the perspective of both a legal practitioner who has represented the wrongfully-accused, and of a legal observer who has written about these trends for the past four decades, Three Felonies a Day brings home how individual liberty is threatened by zealous crusades from the Department of Justice. Even the most intelligent and informed citizen (including lawyers and judges, for that matter) cannot predict with any reasonable assurance whether a wide range of seemingly ordinary activities might be regarded by federal prosecutors as felonies.

"America's criminal codes are now so voluminous that they bewilder not only the average citizen but also the average lawyer."

My 2nd one today was committing armed robbery in LA dressed as Snoop Dog while smoking underage. Everyone should try it at least once.
