Why is it so that British citizens are tried for petty crimes in US which even isn't even considered as a crime in UK?

Trial of British citizens in US

They can’t. This is a "dual criminality" treaty. No one can be extradited by either country unless the
offense is a crime in both countries and carries a prison sentence of at least one year.
