  •  The essence of crime is the deprivation (2+ / 0-)

    of human rights.  When that deprivation is perpetrated by our agents of government, it manifests as legal crime.  Just because it is lawful (like DADT, slavery and segregation) doesn't make it less of a crime.  Not only that, but deprivation under cover of law serves to denigrate justice itself.

    Punishment is supposed to come after crime, not before.
