"laws passed by well-meaning people are being misused"
If you think the people passing those laws are "well-meaning" then I'm afraid things are worse than you think!
Normally, the obvious flaws and ways in which those laws can be abused are brought up well before they are passed.
Those concerns are ignored , or dismissed with something about "guidelines" or "intent".
Subsequently, the law is abused exactly as predicted.
Turns out they don't poll the MP's who voted on it for the "intent" of a law when it's being applied, I mean, it's pretty black and white. If they didn't "intend" it to be used in a certain way they could have put it in the law.
And guidelines are only guidelines after all, I mean, if they were actual rules then the law would have included them , right?
So either voting politicians are somehow surprisingly naive for a profession known for it's infighting, backstabbing and flexible application of both rules and morals. Or they know exactly what they are doing.
