What is obstruction? Is it a crime?

Obstruction is any attempt to hinder the discovery, apprehension, conviction or punishment of anyone who has committed a crime. Obstruction is, therefore, a crime as well.
Justice can be obstructed by many acts, like bribery, murder, intimidation, and the use of physical force against witnesses, law enforcement officers or court officials.
