    Actually according to the articles I've seen, it has been picked up in federal court. Plus I hardly think Holder sticks his nose into every indictment, that doesn't even make sense.

    9 face federal indictments in Capt. Quick murder case - NBC12 - Richmond, VA News

    The federal grand jury indicted five others in connection with racketeering and obstruction of justice tied to the case. Anthony Lee White. Gert Arthur Lee Wright III, Anthony Darnell Stokes, and Devante O'Brian Bell face a number of robbery, drug, weapons and gang charges


    That can be a good thing, conviction rates in federal court are much much higher. I am pro death penalty for sure but I don't see any hypocrisy here compared to similar federal cases.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Blatant racial hypocrisy: Death penalty off the table for black attackers charged in murder of white officer - Allen B. West - AllenBWest.com

    excerpt:

    “U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has taken the death penalty off the table for four people charged in the gang-related slaying of a reserve Virginia police officer. Federal prosecutors said Friday that the four co-defendants will instead face the possibility of life in prison for their alleged role in the killing of Capt. Kevin Quick.”

    “The 45-year-old Quick of Waynesboro was reported missing Feb. 1. His body was found several days later in Goochland County west of Richmond. The Daily Progress reports that authorities say the three siblings and another man charged all belong to the Bloods gang set 99 Goon Syndikate. The four charged in May are Daniel Lamont Mathis, Shantai Monique Shelton, Mersadies Lachalle Shelton and Travis Leon Bell, also known as Kweli Uhuru.”
    Good, shouldn't be using the death penalty period. Not like the Federal Government uses it often anyway.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Can the federal government tell the state (commonwealth) prosecutors what to do or is this simply a case of the feds not pursuing the federal death penalty possibly because the state process is more speedy?

    I remember when the idiot John Allen Mohamed was going around the Washington DC area murdering people with a young accomplice then decided to extort the government by offering to stop if they'd wire millions of dollars to bank account he would set up in Jamaica. Of course, the government was able to use that information to track him down and arrest him. I don't recall all the details but then Attorney General John Ashcroft, decided to NOT pursue the full extent of federal legal options because some of the killings took place in Virginia. The Virginia criminal justice system is far for efficient and the guy was executed under the Virginia penal system really fast.

    Ashcroft said the decision on where to try the pair was made after "a deliberative, fact-based review of these crimes and the appropriate penalties warranted." He said the decision was intended "to secure justice for these victims."

    "We believe the first prosecutions should occur in those jurisdictions that provide the best law, the best facts and the best range of available penalties," Ashcroft said.
