Two crimes that must be modified
Foreign and , apart from the failure to pay US taxes on the proceeds of a crime, is a crime but it does not qualify as an underlying crime for prosecution within the US as a money laundering offense. While US prosecutors can work around this lacuna and do not regard it as an impediment to an effective US AML regime, the absence of as a predicate offense under the US law is often cited as impeding international cooperation against crimes (Meinzer, 2008).
For example, often complain privately that while the US insists on cooperation on issues it considers important, the US itself often fails to cooperate on issues important to other countries such as evasion of taxes on income from .

Thus, the US law should be altered to make tax evasion, whether in the US or elsewhere, a predicate offense for money laundering prosecution.
Several crimes in the US are punishable by the death sentence but arson, which is a horrible crime that can result in massive devastation and even death, is not included among these crimes in some states. In the 1820s a robbery was committed in the high seas, and, as of 1804, the burning of a vessel in the high seas were both punishable by death.

Be that as may, it is difficult to see why a felon who sets on fire a house in which another human dwells, in the middle of the night is spared from capital punishment in some states (Bryant, 2003). By comparing the earlier states crimes, it would only be fair if arson was considered as part of the crimes that should attract capital punishment in all the states.
This article has mentioned that laws are made to protect and serve us in a better way. Our society today is faced with numerous challenges some of which are and cruelty to animals. This article has proposed two legislations that if enacted in all states, would go a long way in curbing these vices. Additionally, the article has explored two laws that should be repealed and two crimes that should be changed to meet the changing demands of society. These are but a few of the changes that need to be enacted to enable our laws to serve us better.
