Remember that “right-wing extremists” report?

You know, the one from the Department of Homeland Security that got so many conservative commentators’ panties in a bunch? These headlines make it seem like a wise decision to keep an eye on extremists of every stripe:

Abortion doc George Tiller gunned down at church; suspect held

Tiller killing: Suspect may have right-wing ties

Once again, it’s important to remember: The ends do not justify the means. It applies to torture, it applies to abortion. We are a nation of laws, not of vigilantes. No man is above the law.
