In Merry Ole England, The Sheriff use to kill you for shooting one of the “King’s Deer”, when you and your family was starving to death.
In the USA Today, in certain places, they will lock you up and steal all you have for shooting one of the King’s Criminals, while protecting Ones Own property and life.
Thought thats why our ancestors got on them ships, sailed across a dangerous ocean, fought a revolution, to get away from and rid of Kings.
Hell off a thing!
