God, Caesar, George Tiller, And Batman

Emperor Misha puts forth an eloquent defense of due process regarding the incident. Here's the money passage:

The religious aspect. This is important, because it’s something that the loony left doesn’t understand (along with almost everything else). “How can you not feel bad about this man being murdered while at the same time insisting that his murderer is a murderer?” Simple, really. Tiller’s murderer violated a law of man, and by that he must be judged here on Earth, as I hope and expect that he will be. But Tiller also violated the Laws of G-d, and therefore I cannot feel bad about him being a recipient of “what goes around, comes around.” It is improper, however, for man to take it upon himself to enforce the Laws of G-d, only G-d has that prerogative, and Tiller’s murderer, no matter how much I feel that this world is a cleaner place because Tiller has been removed from it, did just that. For that he will answer, just as Tiller will answer for his sins.

Here's some food for thought. Ever wonder what it would be like if Batman really existed? Many would find it cool at first - a Caped Crusader taking out crooks that conventional law enforcement can't get to. Thing is, there's a huge lack of consensus over just who the crooks are; many see villainy where it does not exist, or where it is exaggerated. In Batman Nation, the innocent have more to fear from vigilantes than from the usual criminal sorts.
