Barbara, international law does not trump national law in the US, or really anywhere else that often. Take a look at the countries who signed and ratified the ICCPR, and tell me how well Article 17 is being enforced in places like Uganda and Russia for example.
I can't imagine any US court eliminating an American freedom in favor of an international law, especially one that isn't enforced against more egregious offenders. Any politician who relegates American jurisprudence in favor of the international variety is sure to lose, and any judge who wants to put America's Constitution second behind international statutes won't make it past traffic court in his/her career.

This has some great language, metaphors, and turn-of-phrases. I really liked how this was written. I disagree with some of the ideas, but I love how Ms. Holm presents them. This is funny, and I'm glad I read it.

This was a funny and informative column. As a man, I can never comprehend the terror of being followed at night. I also thought the title was about how the police should smile more.
