The only consistent legal code in a free society is one where individuals are only allowed to use force in self-defense against those who initiate it, like murder, rape and theft. It should apply equally to everybody, whether you sit in a big mansion on top of a swamp in DC, wear a fancy, shiny badge on your chest, or are a private citizen.

All other problems in society can be dealt with ostracism, a highly underrated social tool that wields incredible, peaceful power to regulate social norms and behavior.
