GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - The government won't seek the death penalty for a group of men charged in the 2010 death of a Lansing woman.

The Grand Rapids Press reported Friday (http://bit.ly/WxWIie ) that U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder notified West Michigan federal prosecutors of the government's decision.

Why is this a Federal matter at all?

The documents didn't offer a reason.

No reason needed. The names of the perps pretty much say it all.

I guess I don't understand this one at all. Unless the woman was killed on federal property there would be no death penalty anyway.

I don't know why it's a Federal matter. But why shouldn't the prosecutor seek the death penalty?

Johnson, 19, was dragged from her Lenore Street house, thrown into a car trunk and shot several times, according to court testimony.

They shot her because she lived near them and they planned to rob her of some marijuana they thought she had. She may not have been perfect, but she didn't deserve to die in the trunk of a car with thugs firing at her.

It was definitely premeditated and it was definitely homicide. So what's special about them?

Remember how evil Bush was to veto hate crime legislation, even though Texas already had a death penalty?

But doesn’t matter what these scum did to this girl. That’s justice now.

A juvenile was convicted of the murder.
http://www.lansingcitypulse.com/lansing/article-6962-recovering-from-the-loss.html

These people are apparently accessories. They were part of a gang that stole drugs and resold them. Marijuana was being grown in the victim's home.

The article doesn't say but I'm guessing this is a Federal matter on some kind of drug or RICO charges.

Not true.

Commission of certain classes of crimes subjects them to Federal jurisdiction whether they occur on Federal property or not.

When a murder occurs during the commission of drug related crime, the Federal death penalty applies and Michigan's long standing absence of capital punishment is irrelevant.

Muslims, or converts to Islam, or black skin color, or all of the above?

Keep in mind, not only were most of the killers protected class who submitted “mitigation statements” about their upbringing... But also these liberals don’t want a death penalty (except for the girl in the trunk).

I guess this is because of federal drug laws. In which case, why shouldn’t the death penalty even be considered?

The girl was thrown into a car trunk and killed by the thugs in a drug robbery, which meets all the qualifications, so it seems to me that Holder’s defense of these guys is a little out of line (unless, of course, his criteria have nothing to do with crime and everything to do with race...could it be?). And the AG shouldn’t get involved anyway.

There must be a couple of drug related murders per week in Michigan. The last murder in my town was some 30 years ago and it was a drug related murder (Guy murdered his coke dealer) but there is seldom talk of the death penalty.

Sometimes it’s just too depressing to admit what’s really going on, especially since everybody who could do anything about it seems to have taken a vow of silence and you begin to wonder after awhile if you’re just imagining it all. But she’s dead, and that’s real.

1. Michigan does not have the death penalty.

2. The Feds were probably involved due to the “drug trafficing” aspect...probably crossed state lines and borders (yeah, how’s that Fast and Furious workin’ out for ya, Holder?). Federal prosecutors take their marching orders from Washington. darnit.

3. Michigan does NOT have the death penalty, darnit!
