JK Pratt - I owe you an apology. You were simply asking a valid question and I responded sarcastically. I am truly sorry.
I have been thinking about this issue and I will say I do not believe that people get killed very often for refusal to pay taxes, since I am sure most people are intimidated into compliance sometime during the process long before it reaches the fatal confrontation. If they did not ever give up, then, and only then, would they be killed.
Thank you for making me think more about this.
