Three words:

ex post facto

If you can't say how it's a crime now, it's not a crime. Call it wrong if you like, I might even agree with you in some of the particulars. Do not call it a crime if you can't point to a statute that was violated.

If the law does not preclude, it is not a crime. Merely being wrong is several reams of paper and about three gajillion Congressional debates from being criminal.
