Peace Quote of the Day - was it right to assassinate bin Laden?

A friend of mine wrote the following, in an interaction on the news of the murder of Osama bin Laden:

"I think it is wrong to assassinate people. Therefore, from my point of view, Osama bin Laden, should have been arrested, not shot on the spot. A better way to promote democracy, human rights and rule of law would be to arrest, investigate and then prosecute in the court suspected criminals.
Our fight against terror and mass murder will not be won through engaging in assassinations ourselves. Use of violence has a tendency to breed more violence."
