Die bisher klare und unverrückbare Gewaltentrennung zwischen Politik und Justiz wurde durchlässig und der Staat bediente sich seines einflussreichsten tools zur Bekämpfung des RAF Terrorismus; der Polizei. Interessant ist, dass sich die vorliegende Literatur praktisch durchwegs (zumindest implizit) kritisch zur Einmischung der Politik äussert. Neben der immer fliessender werdenden Grenze zwischen Justiz und Politik ist auch festzustellen, dass RAF Mitglieder sehr oft im bereits im Vorfeld des Prozesses öffentlich vorverurteilt wurden. Die Frage, ob die Justiz dem Druck der Politik überhaupt standhalten mochte ist m.E. sehr berechtigt und lässt zumindest Zweifel aufkommen, dass ein objektiv fairer Prozess überhaupt möglich gewesen ist. Immer wieder finden sich in der Literatur (zynische) Hinweise, die eine Ähnlichkeit zwischen den RAF Prozessen und denjenigen vor den nationalsozialistischen Volksgerichten herleiten wollen. Es ist keine Frage, dass dieser Vergleich an den Haaren herbeigezogen ist und doch entsteht manchmal der fahle Nachgeschmack, dass die Deutsche Öffentlichkeit sich sehr schwer getan hat im Umgang mit den Exponenten der RAF bzw. mit dem Prozess gegen nämliche.
