You've seen them in every Disney animated feature. They're mean. They're nasty. They're the Disney villains, the bad guys and gals who make life miserable for our heroes, while making the movies exciting for us. The villains are always defeated in the end, when all their vile plots and evil schemes are undone by the hero. Some villains are killed, some merely foiled. But if they ever went to trial, exactly what would they be guilty of? Nastiness is not a crime. Look here to find some of the actual crimes your favorite bad guys have committed.
