Where the initiation of deadly force leads(link)

SEC. 27. In all cases in which intoxicating liquors may be subject to be destroyed under the provisions of this Act the court shall have jurisdiction upon the application of the United States attorney to order them delivered to any department or agency of the United States Government for medicinal, mechanical, or scientific uses, or to order the same sold at private sale for such purposes to any person having a permit to purchase liquor the proceeds to be covered into the Treasury of the United States to the credit of miscellaneous receipts, and all liquor heretofore seized in any suit or proceeding brought for violation of law may likewise be so disposed of, if not claimed within sixty days from the date this section takes effect.

SEC. 28. The commissioner, his assistants, agents, and inspectors, and all other officers of the United States, whose duty it is to enforce criminal laws, shall have all the power and protection in the enforcement of this Act or any provisions thereof which is conferred by law for the enforcement of existing laws relating to the manufacture or sale of intoxicating liquors under the law of the United States.

Robbers with badges?(link)

Here we have condemnation proceedings of a sort where goods, assets are seized and forfeited to men with guns who may then tie them to railroad tracks or sell them as described by Lysander Spooner in 1868. The men with guns are protected from all liability for death and damage arising from their use of deadly force wielded to prevent production and trade (baaad) through violence (goood). 

As time goes by, new pretexts are added to allow gunmen to rob passengers, pedestrians, drivers or deliverymen without so much as bringing any charges or benefit of arraignment. What happens when the race goes not to the ablest at production, but to the most ruthless at brutality?(link
