... nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.  Amendment XIV, Section I

The U.S. Marshals have played a direct role in mediating the relationship between the Federal government, civilians, and upholding the law and the constitution.  The Marshals were frequently the center of the storm in the controversy and strife that denotes much of American history.
