This is essentially the premise that criminal sanctions are exceptional penalties, which differ considerably from civil penalties in the application of legislation and which are mainly used against persons who harm society by harming victims identifiable by violence or serious injury. Although this model is surprisingly persistent, almost all aspects are questionable. Beyond the distinctions that focus on the presence of identifiable victims or damages, not on risks, the U.S.
