When the laws stop protecting innocents, innocents must be protected by other means.

The problem with the murder of Tiller is twofold. As a practical matter, the incident is a "Reichstag fire" type event that will be used by the pro-aborts and the Left to pursue their agenda. They dominate the Obama Administration and Congress. The Tiller killing will be used to push gun control legislation, hate crime bills, and prohibition of cyberbullying. It also provides some rationale for the Department of Homeland Security targeting pro-life groups and other conservative, Christian, libertarian, or white separatist groups as potential terrorists.
As a matter of principle, the administration of justice is properly the matter of the civil authorities (see Romans 13). Even if the government is in the hands of wicked people, the subjects of that government should not usurp its power. In I Samuel 24, we note that David did not kill King Saul when he had the opportunity to do so. The powers of government are rightly restricted, and when its commands are in conflict with God's Word, we are justified to disobey immoral orders of the government. However, this does not extend to a person unlawfully doing what the government should do.
