If we look at bnei yisroel as "free" then we will not understand the true nature of yetzias mitzrayim. We were not "freed" in a complete sense -- we are bnei chorin in that we serve a different master. This sums up OUR responsibility as avdei hashem.
You can look at the Emancipation of American slaves then, in a parallel light. Someone who is not a slave to a human master still owes the institution that emancipated him -- as citizens, freed slaves have to follow the laws of the overarching community placed there by the same power that freed them, the government.
