I haven't been following the story much.. I know what he was charged with... but the question in my mind is this... how is what he did a FEDERAL Crime?

It would seem to me that the state could prosecute this situation quite nicely and if that is the case, are the federal prosecutors so bored that this is the best thing they could do on a rainy afternoon?

If he did not violate a state law, then it would seem that his fellow citizens had no problem with what he did, and the question becomes again, what makes this a federal crime.

I am NOT advocating what he did, but I think the sensationalism of who he was and the ugly publicity that is generated by the wanton killing of dogs turned this into media circus
