All laws should have an executive summary that contains information pertaining to the spirit of the law that is being put on the books.

Doing this would allow judges to ascertain whether the law was used for it's intended purpose or has been subverted through the use of vague terms or weasel words.

Subverting the spirit of a law should also be a crime.
