Politics & the law

Can politics trump the law?

Amanda Knox was once again convicted — in Italy — of murdering her roommate. Once the case is appealed and if upheld, will she be extradited?

If the law is followed, Knox, will be extradited to Italy, as we have an extradition treaty with that country.

But in this case, politics will likely trump the law. It is highly unlikely that she will ever be forcibly removed to Italy as the politicians in her area will ultimately block any such move.

In cases like this, it becomes apparent that politics, indeed, can trump the law.
