Actually, that's not the biggest problem. When malice is involved, then yes, you can hang anyone you want by using obscure laws nobody knows exist. The biggest problem is that context is everything. If you put yourself in the wrong context, even totally by accident, that makes everything else you do (and did) suspicious just because of the context. No malice needed, just plain old paranoia, human nature, confirmation bias and good intentions from the pavement of the road to hell.
