What "legal process?" He stopped a murder.
I believe Tiberius was illustrating that the ramifications of Yuta's arrest should be considered irrelevant to Riker's decision making process. Full quote:

From there, it would be a simple matter to beam her back to a confinement cell to turn her over to the Acamarian authorities.
The how long does she sit in prison? Do we even know if the Acamarians have a death penalty? Riker could've just as easily been sentencing her to death by incapacitating her and handing her over to them.
Are you seriously presenting this as an argument to support Riker killing her? Because if he didn't, she might face a long prison sentence? And even if the Acamarians were going to kill her, then it is still in accordance with their legal system. Riker has absolutely no grounds for interfering with the legal process of a civilisation that is not a member of the UFP.
