Treason in the constitution

Treason is the offense of acting to overthrow one's government or to harm or kill its sovereign. Treason is related to the constitution because it is the only crime mentioned in the constitution. This represents the constitution because what would represent it better the only crime that the framers thought bad enough to have in the constitution. The only really bad crime back then was treason because there was not a lot of murder and stealing back then. Treason is something that no one wants to think about, but if there is treason in our county, the government needs to be able to find the person committing treason and bring them to justice, but they can't forget that the person accused of treason has the same rights as someone accused of theft. The constitution protects the rights of those people on trial.
